Birthday brunch celebration. Frittata, pancakes, georgette salad with grilled chicken, buckwheat crepe w with smoked salmon and over easy egg were all outstanding. Service excellent as always. Great place to celebrate a special occasion or brunch date or with family.

We try to get here for Sunday brunch at least once a month. They have a regular brunch menu which has great variety, but also offer a prix fix menu that is quite nice. We also go to dinner as well.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in town. The food is consistently good and the brunch menu has variety and is fairly priced. The prix fix menu for brunch is a good deal.

My friends have dined here several times before. I have always loved the place for its ambience and convenience. While generally we had a good time, our seating was not the best. We were placed in the walkway by the kitchen staff. We asked to move but there was no other tables available and the host indicated that there was a table in the lounge. Like really? They had live music that night. That would have killed the night for us with all of the noise and traffic. Next time we decide to go there I will have to request better seating in advance, if we decide to back there as there are plenty other restaurants in Greenwich to choose from.

I went for my birthday with the expectación to have a special breakfast with my friends. The last reservation is allow to be made at 9:30 am so we made it at that time and since the minute we arrived (9:30 sharp) they rushed us telling us kitchen close at 10 am. They clearly were more interested to get things done fast to can close our account so we won’t be bothering asking for another cup or coffee. The mood was really bad in the general staff. And they ruined ours too. If they don’t want to serve you at that time they shouldn’t allow people to do a reservation. When you go to this kind of places you are looking (and paying) for a nice table, food and manners and also, you don’t want to be rush. Worst birthday breakfast ever.

Staff was great. We did have to wait 20 min. to get seated even though we had a reservation. I will not hold it against the staff as it was Valentines Day and busy. We were also disappointed that we were not allowed to purchase from the regular diner menu. This was my first time at L’Escale and had researched the menu ahead of time and had something specific in mind. Only the pre fixe menu was available for Valentines Day. Keep this in mind if you are visiting during a holiday. Overall the food was good and I would recommend to others.

Good food but bad experiencs. Our second time there and unfortunately they sat us at what must have been the worst table in the place both times...right by the servers station. Disappointed as I was really hoping they would take care of us this time but perhaps they were saving better seats for a different target clientele.

Our Valentine's Day dinner at L'Escale was simply perfect. The decor was appropriately festive for the occasion and the food (oysters, halibut, gnocchi with lamb ragout) could not be beat. The service was on point as well- David truly made us feel like part of the family.

One of the living rooms of Greenwich. Enjoyed a solo dinner in the lounge. Five star service, great guitarist and singer, and the most tender and flavored veal can’t describe the dream! It was the best $54 entree ever - incredibly proportioned and I ate every bite. Homemade from yesteryear. See you again soon!

It's always a treat to come to L'Escale. Though we love eating outside in summer, the room is light and airy anytime of year. All the staff are friendly, and the menu changes so the food remains good yet never boring.
