    I love the atmosphere at Liberte because it’s quiet, the food is quite good and service is good as well. It has gotten very expensive for lunch. Sixty dollars for a salad and sandwich seems a bit much. Nevertheless, if you want a conversation with your lunch companion in pleasant surroundings, you can’t beat it.

    Food was underwhelming for the price. Went for restaurant week and had the rabbit and steak. The rabbit was decent since it was my first time so I had nothing to compare it to. The steak was disappointing. The Drinks were very good. Dessert was good as well.

    We enjoyed our Restaurant Week experience at the Liberte Lounge! The food was very good, we especially enjoyed the lamb pot au feu and Baba Rum dessert. We also thought the cocktail list was particularly interesting! The wait staff were all very nice and we didn't have to wait too long on food or drinks. The ambience of the place was great.

    I visited at Noon on a Monday during Restaurant Week so it was very quiet. Service was quick and our server was wonderful. He was friendly, engaged and made recommendations. The food was good. The crispy brussel sprout salad was amazing. The alcoholic drinks were very strong and worth the price. I had the Liberte and my friend had the Paloma, both were very good. I would definitely return. One con is that it is located in the hotel right across from where hotel guests check in and out so that was a bit unusual, but not enough to keep me from returning.

    It took a while for a waiter to come take my order. Seems server was running late? But when they came, service was great. The room was very cold and when I asked for the heat to be turned on, I was told there was nothing they could do as there is no thermostat in that section. Because of this, I will not dine there again in the winter. Too cold and uncomfortable for me. At least the waiter offered hot tea on the house.

    Located in the Sofitel Hotel, this bar/restaurant offers excellent food and a wide variety of drink options for guests staying at the hotel or diners seeking a comfortable dining experience. The salads, appetizers and main courses were well-prepared and came in ample (but not excessive) portions. They were also served in an unhurried manner, allowing for a leisure meal with dining companions.

    What a hidden gem! Nice, quiet spot for a good conversation. Absolutely delicious onion soup where the onion soup was the star - not an excuse to melt a quarter pound of cheese. Frisee salad was perfectly dressed and my colleague had the short rib sandwich - which could easily have fed two.

    This is quite the hidden gem. It’s inside the Sofitel so you’re not likely to stumble upon it, but you won’t be disappointed if you go. I had the short rib sandwich which was nothing short of fantastic. My foodie husband had the filet which he said was phenomenal. They also had an extensive wine list. We took a shot by coming here and we’re so glad we did!
