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.

Always wonderful. 5th Visit for Breakfast. Consistently great service and food. Will return on the next trip to the Delamar.
Great food but don’t accept 8pm reservations given current CT restrictions.
Lovely decor, very nice service, food is not inexpensive but worth the extra $’s - delicious!
We had a great experience at L'escale. The service was great and food was delicious. Staff took extra effort to follow Covid guidlance to keep everyone safe.
All was as expected....delicious food and great roaring fire ambiance!
We had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving at L'Escale. We decided to go out and do something different this year as we weren't seeing family, and we couldn't have picked a better place. It was honestly one of my favorite Thanksgivings ever because I didn't have to cook for eight hours! The food was fantastic and service was great. My husband and all three kids ordered food they actually wanted to eat (they aren't huge turkey fans). The restaurant also adhered to rigorous social distancing protocol, everything was clean, and everyone was masked and gloved. We felt very safe, and really enjoyed out time there. I would actually like to make it a Thanksgiving tradition for my family and go there every year.
Always a treat!
Thank you everyone for a perfect evening. From the moment you arrive, the team who takes your car, the team at reception, and everyone at the table create a special night to relax. Thank you to everyone in the kitchen - all of the courses are always the freshest ingredients. The textures and tastes make L’Escale addicting. And who ever is shaking and stirring, thank you for the chilled water lol. Happy Thanksgiving - see you next Saturday!
we've been yo L'Escale a number of times during the past 6 months....while the food is exceptional the staff is very special...well trained and polite...its a pleasure eating there
Very nice staff and locations. However, for breakfast, food quality and service similar to the food/service I get in a very basic diner.
Dining at L’escale is an excellent experience of what everyone should have! The ambiance, service and food
are all wonderful.
Had an amazing night
L’Escale never disappoints. My food was amazing and the ambiance was great! I would recommend this restaurant to all my family and friends!
unique location and that's all. I find my self not convenient to comment about everything else. Maybe the problem is in the management. I'll gave this place one more shot.
Wonderful food with delightful ambience looking at Greenwich. The decor is lovely and the service is top notch.
An amazing November day overlooking the water !! Waitress was lovely!!
We sat outside and it was lovely. Wait staff was wonderful. The reception/hosts were not that friendly somewhat cold but everything else was fine.
Reliably lovely even on a cold rainy day. Sat outside on the covered patio. A little chilly but good air flow. Brunch was very good; service attentive.
Beautiful restaurant with amazing food and service.
Always a great place when you need a nice break!!!
We had a wonderful dinner on the Patio.the Lobster Fra Diavalo was delicious! Our waiter ,Adrian was attentiveness helpful.It was beautifully decorated and the heat lamps kept it warm. CoVid policies were enforced.
Just wonderful experience , nice view and great staff
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner this past Saturday. The food was delicious and the service was great (including the COVID precautions). We would return especially for special occasions.
Loved being near waterside but would of like under umbrellas closer to water. Rain cause problem.
This place is my 'go to' for business lunches, dinners and personal celebrations.
The whole experience was very pleasant. Attentive wait staff, delicious food, and great prices for the dishes served.
Great service, ambiance, and food
The wine prices are outrageous.
Excellent meal. Would have liked a broader menu, but I enjoyed what I ordered (Crab Cake &Dover sole)
It’s a beautiful atmosphere with a beautiful surrounding on the inlet of the LI sound. it was our first time back since the pandemic and it was sad to see so few people at this restaurant and in the bar room. Which means the ownership is doing its diligence with managing the crowds but at the same time I’m sure they’re hurting. The service was as always impeccable. The food quality is superb. I wish them luck. When you go ask for Victor. He’s super on top of things.
Beautiful place! Would definitely go back. Got a little cold when the sun went down but they did offer a blanket, even though they forgot to bring it hah
Took 40min to place order. Steak was tough and overdone. Doors were open. It was cold. Crab cakes excellent. Tuna appetizer great.
Muy agradable lugar y excelente comida
Servicio muy bueno
Threat service,excellent food.
I really enjoyed it. The only thing is that they were not very good with a few minor substitutions we asked for. Food was delish, staff was great. Accommodating with table seating. Very nice overall.
We enjoyed eating outside under the structure. It was a wonderful way to enjoy a wonderful lunch.
Pleasant to be sitting outside. Service was fantastic.
Great outdoor dining experience on the water in Greenwich. The food was fantastic. The service was great. A wonderful selection of wines. Couldn't have been better!
Dined outside and while a bit cool the heater helped. Wonderful food and excellent service from staff and captain.
