Lait Cru Brasserie Ratings and Reviews
Three high school friends came for lunch. Our server was well informed about describing the foods as well as very accommodating concerning our requests. My dish with French lentils and egg on a bed of of baby spinach dressed in vinaigrette was very tasty. The scrambled egg was well seasoned and arrived hot. The French lentils were not overly seasoned. Excellent tasting. How do you cook those lentils so perfectly?
The homemade desserts were decadent. Who cannot resist chocolate?
All three of us left satiated. Definitely we'll return. This time we will be coming with our husbands for dinner.
We had the Steak Frites and the Quail, both of which were prepared very nicely. The vegetable sides were cooked crisp-tender and seasoned perfectly. Our server was polite, personable, and attentive - without being intrusive. Finally, dessert and coffee- crème fraîche with fresh berries and lemon tart. For my taste, the coffee could have been more robust and it would have been an authentic touch to have espresso, which was not an option. A surprisingly fine French brasserie experience overall.
The service was great and the food was delicious. There is a small menu, but I like that when the chef can focus on doing a few things well. The savory beignets were amazing. I'm so happy to see the cheese shop on the next level like this. Love the atmosphere in the Horsefeathers building - will be back!
Recommended as best brunch in Buffalo magazine, certainly have to agree. We brunch every Sunday at new places and this was one of our favorites. The charcuterie tray was similar to what you find in Europe. Make reservations as this is not a large place and seating is at a prime even at the bar.
It was my wife's birthday.
This restaurant is located on Connecticut and Normal Ave. it is two houses away from where my kids were raised and my first owned house. Anyway, the dining room is very minimalist, modern and still appealing. The two guys run the whole show and do an amazing job. The kitchen is open and if you sit the bar you have a chef's table. We had a bottle of Sparkling wine and my wife had a Nik Mack, roast beef and I had a lamb burger with creme fraiche that we both enjoyed very much.
I highly recommend you try this place but with the understanding that the crew(mostly owners) are all in number but work very hard to make you experience pleasant.
This is my second time at this restaurant for brunch and it is quickly turning into one of my favorites in Buffalo . I had the homemade chicken soup as a starter and it was absolutely delicious and light not greasy at all . Then I had the eggs over lentils and spinach and that was extremely tasty . For drinks I had the fresh squeezed orange juice and lemon chamomile tea. I was able to get a reservation that morning so I was very happy with that because it tends to be a busy place and it's not that large. Will definitely come back for something even if it's not brunch.
I can see that the owner is trying to create a fine restaurant here, but the cooler of sodas in the corner, fluorescent lights and all, certainly takes that vibe away. The young servers were trying but seem very inexperienced. No bread service is pretty weird and when I asked for a steak knife to cut my quail I was told that they didn't have any. That would be okay if the knife I had wasn't a butter knife with no edge at all. Glad I didn't have the steak frites or I would have really been in trouble. The food was pretty good, beignets addictive, salad mediocre. Quail was tasty but could use crisper skin (probably could have cut it with that butter knife if it was).
The high point of the meal was dessert. The goat cheese tart with a pistachio crust was fantastic.
Probably one of the best desserts we've had in Buffalo in a long time. Absolutely superb, and I know my desserts. I would give 5 stars for the dessert if I could.
Wonderful restaurant. A nice surprise. We went on a trip from Rochester to Buffalo for a birthday, but we'll certainly return to Lait Cru. The food was very good, creative, great balances of flavor, an excellent waiter who knew wine and understood our tastes very well. And an exceptional desert -- rose lollipops! -- to boot. Highly recommended.
the place is great and the open kitchen was a wonderful thing to watch. when we arrived at 7 pm it was just about empty. by 8 pm it was really hopping and just about every table was filled. the problem was our waiter was only one on the floor. We watched our plates get set up on the serving table but our waiter didn't pick them up for 10 minutes and the food was cold by then. We had pity for him as he appeared to be the only waiter on the floor. We will give the place another try but they need to figure out their staffing levels.
I was looking for a new spot to celebrate friends' wedding. I had been to the old Martin Cooks many times and loved the Nickel City Cheese shop, ans was pleasantly surprised to see that the cheese shop owner, Jill, expanded into a full service brasserie. To say that the food and service were amazing is an understatement. This was by far the best and most enjoyable meals I've had out in Buffalo in a long, long time. We started with the 3/2 charcuterie, which was fabulous and just what you'd expect from an amazing cheese shop. We then tried the savory beignets and beet appetizer. The beignets were amazing and the beets burst in your mouth with flavor. For entrees we ordered the cast iron chicken with lentils and the trout. Both were exceptional. The trout, light and perfectly cooked, and the chicken had a beautiful crusty skin and delicious pan au jus. For dessert the three of us shared the apple galette, lemon curd tart and profiteroles. All were delicious. As I am not a wine person, my friends ordered a bottle of beaujolais which they said paired nicely with their food. I can't recommend Lait Cru enough. It is a delightful spot where you can have an amazing meal. My only criticism would be that the place needs many more tables as it will be packed once people discover it.
The food was very bad. Over salted. No steak knife to cut the steak. Steak was too touch to use a butter knife. While finishing our meal the cleaning crew was bringing the mop and bucket by our table to clean up the kitchen. There was not a spill. Just the evening clean up. Very unexpecteble. It was a totally bad experience. We would not recommend this restaurant to any of our friends. Food gets an "F"
