Lovely atmosphere with low lighting, fireplace, candleopera in middle of room. Experienced and professional staff but not stuffy. Great wine suggestions for a menu that is epicurean but not over the top. Loved the staff even though they had been working hard through holiday and still had a sense of humor!Had a memorable meal with my niece for our holiday celebration. Best thing is you just go up to your comfy room after dinner!

 (Naples)·Dined on December 21, 2017

So disappointed! A lovely restaurant but the service just ruined it for us all. We had to get the attention of someone to get a drink. Our waiter was more like a bussboy with very little discussion. We had to send the salmon back and my Med rare steak was overdone. No adjustment was offered or extra dessert. We ordered 2 desserts for 4 people and still no offering to comp or add 2 more. Just poor management. We were given a coupon for $$ off for the next time. There won’t be one!

We’ve dined at L’Escale many times. Our last dinner was a disappointment because of slow and unresponsive service. We had to ask five times for more bread, which came too late to have with the salad course. Service from the Sommelier was very slow. The food, as always, was very good.

There was a loud party in the next room so there was a thumping disco beat during our entire meal. Not good. We couldn’t wait to get out of there! I realize the party was for an animal charity which is great- but not great for dining within earshot. The food was fine but perhaps I would have enjoyed it more if not for the constant thumping. I would recommend inquiring about any parties before dining here. The service was very good.

This was our second experience at L'Espace. Both were excellent. The first was in the summer; we dined outside overlooking the harbor. The 2nd was in late autumn; we dined inside.

The service is excellent, the staff are wonderful, and the food and wine were excellent. It was busy in the bar and quiet in the restaurant. We will certainly visit again!

They are "doin somethin" right. The food was spot on, the correct temperature for every dish. Very accommodating to 2 of our companions special dietary restrictions.
Great bar drinks and the added plus of November free corkage was perfect.

True to form, a quality dining experience at Lescale -- waitress Stephanie was particularly attentive and the carrot cake desert was among the best we've ever had. Well done!

I was so impressed by the attentiveness of the all the wait staffs, the food was great and the ambiance was so romantic especially for couples, business dinners and special occasions. I didn’t take a picture of the fireplace and built-in cabinets, I find it so beautiful and old-fashioned. Thank you for the special night we promise to be back sometime soon.

delicious food in an elegant atmosphere. in the summer we really like to sit outside overlooking the water, but it's very nice inside also. service is always excellent. and this month there was no corkage fee, which I thought was very generous.

great restaurant week value, loved the mushroom soup and the hangar steak with fries; dessert included too; by the time we left, the room was full on a Friday night, but we were still able to have a conversation without a deafening noise; polite and efficient service too.

Although I have eaten at L'Escale only at lunchtime, I have had lunch here quite frequently and I find everything about it attractive and appealing. The menu is suitably varied for the salad-eating ladies and the meat-eating businessmen; the food is always delicious and nicely presented; and the service is excellent. During the day the restaurant is bright and airy, and I imagine that in the evening the French atmosphere becomes even more authentic and possibly even seductive. L'Escale is a great favorite among discriminating locals, who love the food and ambiance, but who also appreciate the valet parking.
