    First the bad: my wife had the crab cake. I failed to ask the server if it was made of lump crab meat; it wasn’t. It might have been claw meat or previously frozen mystery crab. The crabmeat was totally tasteless. I had the red fish meunière which had the same “crabmeat” on top. The redfish was good but was a very small fish. The bbq shrimp appetizer was unremarkable. The wedge salad was disappointing. A small sliver of iceberg with blue cheese topped by mixed greens tossed in a vinaigrette type dressing. Some may like it but, for me, I want a real wedge salad. The good: the mussels were exceptional, the sauce was anyway. One of our guests had the lobster bisque which reportedly was very good. Our other guest had the steelhead trout which was also good. The best part of the meal was the crème brûlée desert which was great. Tchefuncte’s is a very well dressed restaurant which would be great to impress out of towners. The ambience is great and the noise levels ok. The food, what my wife and I had, was only fair.

    Depending on where you said the restaurant, the ambience could be anywhere from active to very sedate. The service is always incredible. The culture is always pro patron. Their innovative food makes for a great dining experience. As a very frequent diner, I have yet to experience disappointment, either in a repeat dish or an exciting new one.

    Lovely restaurant with great service. For the price the food was okay. Prime filet was perfectly cooked but over salted. Pear salad was bland as was creamed spinach. Dessert of crème brûlée was delicious and generous. I have been there quite a few times. Usually better

    our meal was very good, but would've been excellent if it had been hot when delivered to our table. I didn't observe the restaurant was overly crowded to cause difficulty getting dishes from the kitchen to the dining room. regardless, I'll go back.

    My husband and I shared a fabulous date night. This is truly a ‘gem’ we will be returning to. We could hear ourselves talking which is my #1 complaint with most restaurants today. Not hear! They have the music and noise level well handled. The food was unbelievable! You have to try it for yourself. Excellent in every way.

    Expecting an experience but fell quite short. Food was decent but not worth the bite per price. We didn’t have any oh my goodness moments for 400 dollars. Mind you this was three people two drinks 3 teas 1 appetizer, 3 mains 2 toppings 3sides. Waited 25 minutes between servings. Food came out warm if best and two steaks charred we needed to send back. Service was great and they took care of a portion of the bill but really not worth the price. There are other choices that are on their game when price per bite is in play. My opinion of course but not returning.

    Fantastic service and meal! Entrees were a little slow coming out and drink service took a little long, but this was acknowledged by the staff professionally and handled with class. We were enjoying a family dinner, so we weren’t in a rush anyway! Our second excellent experience at Tchefuncte’s - we will definitely be back.

    We made a reservation for NYE thinking it would be regular menu service, but ended up being a prefixe menu for $140 per person. The only reason I found out was because I called the hostess a few hours in advance to confirm the reservation had gone through. We knew it was a nice, expensive place but $140 for 6 courses that were only 2-3 bites of food each left us feeling underwhelmed, especially because wine or cocktails were not included in that price. We still enjoyed ourselves - the few bites of food we did have were delicious, the service fantastic, and the ambiance very sophisticated yet cozy. Can’t wait to come back on a night when I can try the full menu.

    Dinner was amazing. We had the crab cakes and the muscles as an app. The crab cakes were all crab. The mussels had a wonderful sauce with grilled bread for dipping. So yummy. Lobster bisque was very tasty. Main entrees we had the dry aged ribeye and the crabmeat ravioli at this point I was getting pretty full but still creatively delicious choices. The chocolate mousse cheesecake is a must. It was an impressive dessert with a cookie crust all the way around. The service was impeccable. We were celebrating our Anniversary and were greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne. Looking forward to leftovers today and we will be back for dinner soon!
