I was very disappointed. The food was good, not great. The worst part was the sommelier, he was arrogant and rude. They didn't have the wine we ordered, which I understand, but the replacement was not great and not from the same growing region of Burgundy, thus not exactly what I wanted. When the bill came, it had the original wine on it, when I questioned the waiter he brought the check to the sommelier. A few minutes later it was throw in front of me with a rude comment "it was only 5 or 10 dollar less than the original wine." Honestly, it wasn't about the $5-$10, it was about trying to overcharge a patron. The manner in which it was handled was so poor I will never be going back.

The hostess is outstanding! Always a smile and a warm welcome...makes you
always want to come back.

Wendy, the pastry chef is "over-the-top" with her creative desserts that you cannot
find in any other restaurant in Greenwich. Just superb!

I would recommend L'Escale, it is a terrific restaraunt for a special occasion. Atlymosphere and service were outstanding. The food was a bit expensive for the amount that was served.

We were a party of 10. The server disappeared (it seemed) for long lengths of time.
When our food arrived, it was cold, including the hot dessert.

Very disappointing and for 2 birthdays!!

Will never come back.

Dinner well prepared and presented. Service friendly but confused, more than one person asked how our meal was, whether we wanted pepper, etc. Noise carried from the bar into the dining room.

L'Escale is one of my favorite restaurants. It's become a special place for me to host ladies' lunches, business lunches and family dinners. It's a most special place in Greenwich, with water views and a most beautiful ambiance. It's always a special place to dine, whether brunch, lunch, dinner or special occasion.

Lovely dinner in a French Country style dining room just in front of the fireplace could not have been more cozy on a Winter's evening. Wait staff service is very prompt and professional. Front desk staff is a little inexperienced. Food was very good. We enjoyed the burrata special to start which was plenty for two, and the bouillabaisse was also good. It's a little pricey but not out of line for the quality and ambiance.

always a pleasure to dine here, we enjoyed the January fixed menu special, great food; service can be counted on to be professional yet outgoing, and the room is one of the prettier ones in the area; try to get a table in front of the fireplace, very nice in winter.
