Wonderful food and service in this classic french bistro. A great place for a romantic dinner.
The food and service were exceptional. I could not ask for a better dining experience. Jim
The entire venue is absolutely charming and every bite of food was delicious. The only downfall is that it took us quite a long time to get the check, we noticed that a mistake had us charged far too little and brought it to their attention to be honest. Then we had to wait another 20 minutes for our check to return at full cost despite our waiting. The experience was overall delightful but it left us disappointed in the end.
Have been dining at La Panetiere for many years. Never disappointed.
It was a perfect place for our valentines dinner. At one point my water glass was empty and it took a while for the staff to refill it.
We love, love, love this place so much! Our Valentine's dinner was super delicious (even adapted to my gluten free diet) and looked beautiful and the service was excellent!!! We'll be there many more times! Can't wait for the summer - looks like sitting outside will be an option then too.
The special menu was delicious, but it was not worth the cost of the
dinner which was $90.00 per person. Also, we weren't offered the regular menu, so we had no choice. That is our only complaint.
We did enjoy the evening!
Food was quite good BUT there was little to no attention to food allergies. Was brought two different plates with an allergen after we had reviewed my allergies at the start.
Ambiance was nice. Food was very good, but the whole thing was very expensive for tiny gourmet plates - I always feel like a sucker after such an experience. We came for Valentines Day, so it was (arguably) worthwhile. The staff are clearly authorities, being French. There was one server, however, who might have been hired as an Italian mob favor or something- this guy with a thick New Yorker accent who was nervous and dropped plates and was a bit too rough for the place. When I asked him about flavors and qualities of comparable bottles of Bordeaux, of which they have many, he asked me at the dinner table about my "price point," which was rude and not the point. I asked him to speak to a Frenchman who could answer the question directly and not like an ill-fitting Trump henchman.
Loved the braised lamb shank and the Bordeaux! Upstairs atrium is lovely!
Be prepared to spend $400 for two people...
Consistently a terrific place to eat.
If there were ten stars, I’d give all of them to La Panetiere. But if there are only five, well...*. Excellent in every way.
As usual, excellently prepared food attractively presented, lovely atmosphere and good service, all of which is a terrific value using a groupon (as we did.) It even included a decent bottle of wine with dinner.
There are many menu choices for the various courses. For personal reasons we would prefer fewer dishes containing shellfish.
Amazing food and impeccable service! I very much appreciated the special treats and the birthday wishes in a quiet manner.
We have been dining at La Panetiere for over two decades, and it has always been good, but I don't know if it has ever been as good as it is today. First, it is a beautiful restaurant, in a charming building that feels very much like a country house which at one time long ago it was.
The food is classic French, but with flair and extra touches. Beautifully plated, a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Extra touches: Tell the waiter you and your dining partner would like to split one of their delicious soufflés, and they will come out with two mini-souflés in mini-souflé dishes. Everyone at our table loved what they had, so I will not recommend any specific entrées. Very, very special.
We dine at La Panetiere fairly often and have never been dissatisfied. We took friends with us and they had not been there before. They have indicated that they would be back.
I was shocked how bad the food was for such a highly rated restaurant. I left feeling gross and was really mad that I went there.
It was indeed a birthday,and we've celebrated there often.
I have been to La Panetiere many times and it never disappoints. The food is always amazing and the staff go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. This time I booked the reservation and noted that it was my anniversary. The restaurant presented us with a card saying Happy anniversary and thanked us for choosing them to celebrate with. Even down to the last detail they handle things with class and elegance.
Spot on, old school, delivers on all accounts. Service was exemplary and the food options and preparation were excellent. While some guests appeared to have been under 30, the majority, it seemed were over 40/50. The old school French was reminiscent of some finer Manhattan French restaurants featuring fine dining. No bistro, this restaurant is very tastefully decorated with finer appointments. I highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion - certainly worthy of the splurge!
