Provencal
The iconic, l’escale restaurant bar, or “port of call” for seasonal Mediterranean cuisine is designed to transport the ambiance of Provence to the Gold Coast of Connecticut. Two-hundred-year-old stone terra cotta tiles from Provence adorn the floors with a wood burning fireplace lending an unmistakable charm and beauty.

Founded by Rick Wahlstedt in 2003, l’escale has reached institution status. Located at Delamar Greenwich Harbor Hotel, the restaurant’s intimate decor, along with its wrought iron tonelle covered waterfront terrace and exquisitely designed menu by award winning Executive Chef Frederic Kieffer will deliver the Côte d’Azur right to your table.

    Just read that L’Escale will be closing at the end of the year!!! If that is so, it will truly be missed. Best overall restaurant in Greenwich -msetting can’t be beat. The owners of the Delmar Hotel are making a big mistake!!

    The food was OK. The weight staff was pleasant. There was a lot of foot traffic going past the table. One manager was continuously talking to a table of guests about his issues with something with his back to me at too close a range. The ambience was not very relaxing.

    Exceptional food, courteous and helpful wait staff, and a delightful outdoor patio right on the river. We were able to enjoy a leisurely anniversary celebration and highly recommend all of our choices. Drink: Moscow mule (delicious, although I would have preferred a traditional copper mug rather than the metal mug). Appetizers: steamers, head-on seared prawns with olive tapenade & a delicious light cream sauce. Main course: lobster fra-diavolo (well spiced without excessive heat), sautéed softshell crab (perfectly cooked & with the most delicious asparagus I’ve ever tasted as a substitute for succotash). Dessert: Black & white chocolate soufflé (cooked to order, beautifully puffed, and served very warm with an innovative pistachio sauce & flaky, crispy croissant-like cookies). Perfect portions,. We left feeling happy & satisfied without being stuffed to the gills. This was our first visit to L’Escale and we definitely plan to return!

    While staying at the Delamar Hotel, we dined at thier restaurant, L'Escale twice, once for dinner and once for lunch. We felt as though we had been transported to the French countryside. This is a lovely restaurant - perfect for a romatic dinner or speical occasion.

    Excellent restaurant . The food, atmosphere and service were all truly wonderful. However, it is the hospitality from its staff that make this a truly memorable experience. From the valet, hostess to the restaurant staff, everyone is warm and attentive . Faultless service, and impeccably dressed too, reflecting the caliber of restaurant it is. Highly recommend this special place for a wonderful lunch or dinner.

    The food was fine but our dinner took 2.5 hours- it was slowwwwwww, we had to repeat our orders several times and re-request utensils, water refills, etc. our desert was brought in a to go bag versus served at the table and when we asked them to fit it, we waited another 30 minutes. The food was okay- but at those prices the service was terrible.

    We went for my wife's birthday. The space is beautiful with a lovely view of the harbor and high ceilings. The tables are well spaced and the atmosphere was quiet . The service was impeccable. Our waiter, Jose was excellent. We all love our dinners. We will definitely return for other festive occasions.

    We have always loved L'Escale, but it's not what it used to be. I think some of it is just a factor of the times in the NY/CT area, as it was pretty quiet, also food was not as good as it used to be. Steak overcooked (medium well instead of medium rare), Tuna wasn't super fresh. A bit disappointing. Hopefully things get back to what they were soon because we truly enjoyed always eating there.
