We didnt have a waiter the entire night-the host brought us drinks and bus boys brought us the food. The food was so awful, and made both me and my husband sick.

We enjoyed our evening at the restaurant. The quality of the food did not live up to what we were charged. I believe the food was very overpriced for what we were provided.

Outstanding service as always, our waitress was accommodating and extremely attentive. Food and drinks were on point, prosciutto and burrata was the best we've had in a long time.

The ambiance was lovely, great setup of the restaurant so when full you can still have a conversation with your guest(s). There was an excellent one man band in the lounge singing popular covers, great place to have a night cap after your meal.

Looking forward to our next experience at L'Escale.

In town for the weekend & hoping for a lovely date night, we headed to L’Escale. We were most disappointed from start to finish. After being sat, we waited 10 min to have our drink orders taken. Then another 20 for the drinks to arrive, just as I was getting ready to give up and walk out. Then our dinner order was taken. Our appetizer was decent, Prosciutto & Burratina, but it was served without any bread or cracker, which made it awkward to eat. Our mains arrived shortly after. My husband enjoyed his Prime New York Steak, which was cooked nicely at medium rare. However, he was disappointed with the 3 small potato slices that accompanied the steak. My Prime Hanger Steak Frites had the potential to be delicious, ordered medium, but it came completely over cooked, well done and zero pink throughout. The fries were delicious. We could not address any of the issues with our server, since he did not come to check on us once throughout the entire meal. We only saw him when he took our order and when he dropped off our check. We did manage to order the creme brulee for dessert at that time, which was nice and also accompanied by a complimentary square of a cookie/cake bar of some sort. For how highly regarded this restaurant is by many, it was a surprise that it fell so short in so many different areas.
