    My husband and I have been to La Cremaillere many times. Recently, however, we noticed a distinct difference between what we find when we go on a regular night and what we find when we go on a "special" night like New Years Eve or Valentine's Day. In short: it's just not as good on those days. This place is *amazing* on a regular evening. On special occasions, it's still better than many places, but it's not as good as it is on a regular night, which is a shame.

    Basically had a private chef. Besides us there were only 2 other couples the entire evening. I know Tuesday can be a slow night, but wow! Food was terrific and obviously there were plenty of people to wait on us, I just felt badly for them.

    As always, a very special meal in a very special setting! We were warmly welcomed, promptly seated, and well attended to. The menu was intriguing, the wine list comprehensive, the service professional, and the food quite delicious and well presented. La Cremaillere is a richly appointed oasis of comfort and elegance in the countryside near major urban areas. The visit was another superior experience in a long life, and well worth a major detour to experience!

    We have dined at this restaurant several times and the food was extremely disappointing on this visit. To begin, we could not order a bottle of wine as the restaurant was taking “inventory” on the Friday night before Christmas??? As for the food, the bread was cold on the middle, smoked salmon was slice THICK and Chilean Seabass was served cold.

    Another outstanding evening at La Cremaillere... we brought all the children with us, and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us... despite their recent financial/legal troubles, I really, really hope they can find a way...this place is the definition of a time-capsule that is unmatched. An incredibly unique dining experience that seems more like a broadway show every time we come here... hope to be back soon! Thank you Stephane, Robert, and staff! 🇫🇷🎉🍷🎄🔥

    We selected the restaurant primarily due to its proximity to an event we attended in Bedford. What a wonderful discovery this was. The food, ambiance and service was top notch. Totally charming - and all dressed up for Christmas to boot! We’ll be back for sure.

    Whether it's a celebration, a romantic evening or just trying to de-stress from a busy week, La Cremaillere is a wonderful choice. The food (beet salad/sea scallops and escargots/quenelle of Minnesota pike) was exquisite, the service unobtrusive, capable and pleasant, and the surrounding quietly elegant. You leave saying, "I'm so glad we went. I cannot wait to go again."

    DO NOT PLAN A PARTY OR EVENT WITH THIS RESTAURANT planned a bridal shower for march 14 confirmed in december and end of february when i called about the menu (spoke to stephen) for 40 people week of march 14 - voicemail says they are closed for winter break until march 18, owner gets arrested/guilty and that article says thats why the restaurant is closed. no warning from management/restaurant at all on either thing no answer on the phone, no email, no response to facebook message. i would have had 40 people show up if it wasnt for a friend to HAPPEN to come across the article about the arrest. finally they call me (March 13) to tell me they are closed bc of the coronavirus. Doesn't match up to their voicemail about winter break or the article. if it was the coronavirus, maybe call me? every restaurant i know has emailed me about their closing. i would have showed up with 40 people to a closed restaurant. horrible management.

    We had a wonderful sharing evening. We thought it would be fun and we found the staff very accommodating. We started with the vegetable lasagna, extremely flavourful and delicate. Then followed with Chilean sea bass, and chose the American herb crusted lamb chop as our main course. Everything was terrific! It was a great date-night and we will be back very soon! Thank you!

    We had a wonderful date night. We had never had pike dumplings before, it was a wonderful mousse of fish with a velvety sauce - out of this world. The staff was efficient and friendly, even though they were busy. We felt we were very well taken care of. We can't wait to return for our next date!
