************************************************************
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.

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.

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!

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.
