This place was amazing. Probably hands down the best duck confit I’ve ever had. Would definitely come back here again.
Pleasant staff and most importantly succulent food with great sides pairings.

Fully satisfied 👌🏻

The food and place was great but the service was very slow. We were there for two hours. The first course came out pretty cool but the second and third course too a very long time.

The staff were genial and our greeter was a hilarious but brief chatter which was welcomed while we awaited the arrival of our superb afternoon tea. I will definitely make a return visit in the near future.

Went there with a friend for Christmas eve and although the food we ordered was good, the limited menu prix fixe (the only thing available) was a overall disappointing. Excellent pork belly appetizer, so-so Prime rib with over-heavy sauce on top. Yule log cake (white and dark chocolate )the only choice (neither of which of interest to me).
Venue was lovely, maitre d excellent. Waiter not very attentive.
I'd try it again for a regular meal, but never this particular prix fixe.

The tea and accouterments were delicious and the waiter was very knowledgeable. He was particularly sweet to the 9 year-old little girl we had with us. The tables and chairs were not comfortable for a tea, though. We kept having to adjust our feet on either side of the large base of the table and the chairs were very sunken in. You had to sit on the edge in order to talk to each other.
I was also disappointed in the fact that there were really no Christmas decorations in the lounge. There was a little something in the window, but I had my back to it. I was hoping to do a Christmas tea, so it was a let down.

My husband and I went here for the four course and wine pairing prixe-fixed dinner. It was fantastic! Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the evening. Since there were two choices for the first 3 of the 4 courses, she suggested that we each get one and share. Great idea! The prickly pear salad contained some amazing cheese wedges and octopus starter was delicious - paired with a Riesling - I’ve never been a fan of Riesling, but this was crisp, dry and chilled just right. The second course was a crisp bacon wrapped around a fish, paired with a Sauvignon blanc - also good, but liked the Riesling better. The third course we had skate wing and short ribs paired with Chianti Classico - delicious and we brought enough home for dinner tonight!. The 4th course was a chocolate mousse and cheese plate, we each got our own, paired with Cabernet Sauvignon- by this point, we were so full, but the tastes we had were so enjoyable. Overall, this was a very pleasant experience. The food portions were large, the wine pours were ‘full pours’ for each course, and our server was very personable and helpful. Couldn’t ask for a better experience. Best part, it was a Travelzoo special, which made the value unbelievable!

Food was very good. Wine selection exceptional. Service was a problem. It took very long to get any course. At worse we waited for 30-40 minutes to get second part of the meal. Nobody was paying attention to seat us. Perhaps we were first clients but it felt we had to ask for service

I was in the area and reviewed the menu online. The ambience was nice and the seating casual and comfortable. The food was the real star. The French Onion soup was good, I am a fan and it did not disappoint. However the duck confit was the star! Amazing dish. Rich and decadent. I'd eat it again if I weren't so full...

I had brunch here and was amazed at the election and creativity of the Eggs Benedict choices. There were 9 different combinations and you get to choose two! I chose the Duck Benedict and the Crabcake Benedict both were outstanding, although they could have been served warmer than they were.

The atmosphere was nice and we were seated as soon as we arrived. However, the initial hostess forgot about us and it took another host to notice we hadn't received menus which took 5 minutes. The food we ordered was ok. The duck conflit was good I thought, but the venison was Very Salty and cold. The best part was probably the dessert and the drinks. The waitress was very nice and attentive.

I visited Liberte Lounge during restaurant week not knowing what to expect. The menu items are what drew me to dine there and the meal did not disappoint. The service and ambiance was very good and the chef out did himself with all 3 courses. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice date night.

Went there for restaurant week and I will say the duck confit dumplings were amazing. Also the poached pear salad was divine. Vension was on point, I will say I didn't like the stout glaze with it but I ate around it. The red cabbage with brown sugar was done to perfection. The staff is attentive and shanica the manager is right out there assisting for volume and is one of the most pleasant people I've run into in this industry.

We waited over an hour for our food while. I noticed everyone had flowers on their plate and it was well presented. Mine however had no flowers and was warm at best. Waitress offered us a free glass of champagne for our wait. We don'l like champagne so it was of no comfort. Place was not even crowded that we waited so long for our food.

We utilized a travelzoo GC deal for weekend brunch for two with two drinks. My husband and I very much enjoyed it. We ordered the eggs benedict variety - we were each able to order two different types on each of our plates. I loved the mimosas and the service was great. I highly recommend the brunch!
