Although we indicated a birthday celebration on the reservation and upon arrival,there was no special dessert brought to the table. The waiter was very loud in our small side room. The sommelier spent about ten minutes talking with another table while we waited to speak with him.

Our table wasn’t ready when we arrived. Greeter wasn’t very friendly. Our wine selection wasn’t available. So we were skeptical. But the appetizers arrived and we were wowed! Our main course selections didn’t disappoint, except for the size of the portions. And, of course, dessert was delicious!
Overall, a lovely evening, once we got past the first thirty minutes.

Beautiful venue, scenery, vibes, food, service. Couldn’t recommend it more whether it’s simple cocktails and finger food at the bar, or a legitimate dining experience. The view of the river is beautiful.

It was very nice, we did have a minor issue with the waiter explaining an item but the GM was great and took care of the matter and us. The GM was very knowledgeable and cares. The food was fresh and great.

The decor is straight up Vegas tacky, but the food, beverage, service and view completely make up for the gaudiness. There is nowhere else with this selection and presentation of beef, but unlike other fine steakhouses, they also excel at seafood and poultry. Vegetarians may not see an obvious effort to impress, but it’s truly easy to build a delicious vegetarian meal thanks to interesting salads and sides. The cocktails are truly noteworthy. Not your typical restaurant list of sticky sweet concoctions, the cocktail menu shows imaginative pairings of spirits with bitter, sour, sweet and savory ingredients. Brilliant.

Amazing table! Great view of river. Unfortunately, a drunk guy at the bar kept turning the lights up in our room all the way like 10 times during our dinner. Odd music selections for a fine dining restaurant. Tasteful, just a bit out of place. Food - incredible. Service- unbeatable. View - amazing. Will definitely be back !

The setting and the food are outstanding. Highly recommend the salmon appetizer, the surf & turf, and the vanilla soufflé. Excellent coffee here too. Our only complaint was the service. Not sure if our server was just having an off night or if there were too many tables in his section to manage…but we had to ask for things multiple times, he was MIA much of the time, and we waited an interminable amount of time after our meal for the check. Once we got the bill, he never came back to collect it. We had to ask another server for help. She was very sweet and accommodating, but she wasn’t our server. I was expecting more attentive service from a “fine dining” establishment. Again though—perhaps he was just having an off night. We’ll definitely be back.

Outstanding food and service. We both had the Delmonico steak and they were both cooked perfectly. The Tchefunctes potatoes were amazing as was the roasted cauliflower. Some of the seating looks out over the water. Great for a date, occasion, or a business meal where you want to impress. Highly recommended

Pierre and Victoria provided extraordinary service, responding to unique needs of my vegetarian wife. A couple times the kitchen did not respond as well to me unique requests she made. Pierre made sure these mistakes were rectified expediently. Hats off to him.

Our evening at Tchefuncte’s was memorable yet again. We weren’t surprised since that’s what we’ve come to expect at Tchefuncte’s. First class service (Pierre you are outstanding) the ambiance, beautifully appointed and the food was hot and oh so delicious.
Thank you again for making our evening perfect.

Nice facility and ambiance. Lunch menu selection a little too eclectic for me.
Waiter was maybe spread too thin? Large group in adjacent dining area got most of his attention toward the end of our meal. We waited to order dessert but he never came, then waited even longer for the check.
Management eventually interceded and offered free dessert, but we were just ready to leave by that point.
