best restaurant in the area for food and service.
If you appreciate very good French cuisine this is the place.
Beautiful food great service and lovely atmosphere We look forward to coming again
An institution! I've dined at La Panetiere for many years and it is always top notch. The menu is always interesting and the food is prepared perfectly. The service is warm and attentive. The ambiance is fancy but not stuffy. One of my favorite special occasion restaurants.
This is one of our favorite places to celebrate special occasions. I am so happy to see that the dress code still remains with dress attire. It so so important to be in an atmosphere where elegance is still required. The oysters were amazing and my husbands escargot were so delicious. Our main courses were fabulous as well. The veal was cooked to perfection and the Dover sole was delicious.
Always the best of the best. Perfect food and service in a wonderful setting.
Expert, accomodating wait staff. A beautifully appointed, quiet restaurant where civility reigns and the food is so tastefully prepared. One of my favorite restaurants.
It was good, not great. We got the groupon and there was a separate menu for that, which was fine, but not made explicit on the Groupon. The waiter was not attentive, we were seated 10 mins before he came over, but the rest of the support service was great (guy with water, server with bread, etc). Food was good, not outstandingly amazing. Overall, the dinner would have cost us about $250, but cost us closer to $165 with the Groupon. I think with the Groupon it’s a pretty fair price (but a little expensive), otherwise I think it’s a bit too expensive.
La P is always a special treat and we enjoy visiting for everyday or for the most special celebration. The staff and service are always outstanding. 5 Stars.
This experience at La Panetiere was not up to the level we had found at prior dinners. Although the soup was outstanding and the smoked salmon appetizer was excellent the main dish was just ok and the service was very slow although friendly and accommodating. It was less painful because we had used a groupon.
Absolutely perfect in every manner.
We have been to this restaurant many many times but took friends there for their first time. All of us were very pleased with everything. The food, of course, was excellent as was the service. We will continue to go and enjoy.
This is a beautiful place. It reminds me of the quaint countryside restaurants in France. The food is above par with delicious tastes and exquisite presentation. Service was impeccable and the staff very friendly. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that wants a special evening out. Be warned that it is an expensive place. We used a Groupon for four people and although still expensive, was well worth it. The only reason I did not give it a 5 rating was because they charged tax on the original price, not the discounted price. When asked, the manager got very indignant about it. Other than that it was a 90% good experience.
We recently returned for lunch. We were hoping our last visit was a one off and the great news is that it as the case. This meal was excellent as all previous ones.
The Groupon menu was varied & prices right! The salad was just ok but presented wonderfully. The complimentary bread & breadsticks were very tasty. The salmon was excellent. The ribeye a bit tough. The coconut cannoli was AMAAZING! Loved the Sancerre wine.
Wonderful food creation and generously friendly staff
We have eaten at La Panetiere on a number of occasions and it is always a pleasurable experience. This occasion was no exception, but we felt that the food and the wines with which it was paired were a bit disappointing compared with our past experience.
Loved it! Can’t wait to go back
Food service were excellent. Good value for lunch.
Everything was outstanding except for the entrees which were generous and fresh but just ok, the sauces on them being undistinguished (the swordfish and the pork tenderloins). The service was perfect, the choices were many appealing wonderful dishes, the soup was superb as were the breads and desserts. The salad and appetizers were very good.
We go there every February to celebrate my husband’s birthday. They always have a card on the table and a special dessert at the end with a candle. We go on Sunday night, a nice way to end the weekend. The ambiance is lovely, the service excellent and the food marvelous! We can easily converse, the timing of the courses is perfect for us to enjoy our special evening out!
Nice atmosphere, fantastic service and a great meal. We had a very dinner in relaxing and we weren’t rushed like some places. We enjoyable evening and would recommend La Panetiere very highly.
We love coming here. Everything is always perfect. We’ve been here dozens of times and had almost everything on the menu. The souffles are divine. Can’t wait to return.
La Panetiere has long been a favorite to celebrate special occasions.The food is super--and definitely not what I would--or could-- make at home.
Excellent as always!!!
a perfect place for a celebration. It was a friend's 90th birthday,and we had a totally wonderful experience
Old world service combined with creative outstanding food
Superb service and ambiance. Complexity of a number of the dishes on the menu limited our choices. One main course was outstanding but the other suffered from overreaching.
The food.service,and atmosphere were wonderful asslways
An entire staff that goes out of their way to make every single moment feel special! AMAZING service from the moment you meet the valet, coat check, getting seated, server, etc. Just all around wonderful staff! I cannot recommend this place enough!
Superb food, creative & delicious.
Service, ,very attentive.
We love everything about this restaurant! We've been going for years, first just for special events ..and now with a Groupons, we are there quite often! They have maintained the quality of food, service and beautiful ambiance in an old farmhouse in Rye, not far from the beaches, for over 30 years!
Everything was perfect except for two food items:
The Truffle appetizer has no taste. Truffles were blah! No flavor!😉
The beef was not up to its usual standards.. it was not tender! Could not finish it! This is VERY unusual at this gem of a restaurant.
Love everything about this restaurant. Just didn’t think food was up to the level of previous visits.
Christmas day dinner with family was really lovely. We could not have asked for a better experience. The food was delicious and the ambiance very festive. We felt like it was the perfect place for a holiday celebration. We hope to return more often in the upcoming year.
We went on Christmas Day early evening. They were understaffed and the staff was tired. The prefix menu included samplers for several courses which were underwhelming. It was an expensive evening for a not very special experience.
A fabulous brunch with freshly baked croissants and delicious food. The setting is charming and decor on point. HIGHLY recommended!
Presentation of food was beautiful! Even with an expensive groupon it was pricey. service a little spotty..had to ask for bottle of wine that was included! Duck was good, steak ok,and swordfish had a delish sauce but a little overcooked, desserts were awesome...salad wonderful, seafood pasta yummy but food a little too rich for my liking! In general a festive celebratory meal in a beautiful spot.
Wonderful meal. Service was quite slow in the beginning but picked up as the meal went on. Food was amazing. 250 for us with tip (2). Expected that cost so it was ok..... decked out for Christmas. ( maybe have a menorah somewhere??). 2 hours and the meal was great
We have been here dozens of times, every four to six weeks. It is always perfect. Everything on the menu is delicious and looks like a work of art. The staff is professional, warm and friendly. We can’t wait to return.
Fabulous dinner and ambiance
