    We love coming there for date night! We always request a quiet table or booth away from others and usually end up next to loud people but that’s their only area of opportunity. The food and wait staff is always amazing!!

    This is my 2nd visit to Tchefuncte's. On both visits, the food was excellent, and the service outstanding. I look forward to having another meal at Tchefuncte's. The restaurant offers a lovely setting with a view of the river as well as a classy comfortable environment.

    I had really high expectations for dinner tonight, but was unfortunately let down. My husband ordered the old fashion that was subpar; we started with the bbq shrimp appetizer which was decent. For dinner we ordered the Hawaiian ribeye which was the best tasting thing of the night, we added the creamed spinach side which lacked seasoning sadly. We also shared a Caesar salad, that wasn’t the greatest(also not a fan of deli sliced Romain I have to cut up to eat) I ordered the filet 6 oz with the mashed potatoes and of the whole night our biggest upset was the potatoes that I were boxed instant potatoes. So for 240$ we won’t be returning. They were gluten aware tho for those with allergies. I was impressed with that

    Tchefuncte's might just have the best Sunday Brunch on the Northshore. The food is superb. The service and waiters are excellent. The ambiance luxurious to say nothing of the view over the Tchefuncte River. I highly recommend you try this restaurant.

    We visited on Mother's Day so the menu was limited and the two courses offered had a set price. We sat in the bar area at a booth, and it was quite comfortable. The food was excellent and the cocktails were as well. The bartender was very friendly and accommodating. The ambience and the view/location are spectacular. The noise was not a factor at all, and the service was good. I will definitely return on a regular evening. Thank you.
