Suzette's Creperie Ratings and Reviews
The music was way too loud for the size of the room. She was playing at normal volume and the louder she played the louder the talk became. In a setting like this it should be “background” music not a concert performance.
My sister and I love the Christmas Tea - 4th year attending - but she remarked to me that it seemed exceptional loud this time.
Tea is great. Food very good. Servers are very pleasant.
This was our group's third year meeting at Suzette's for our holiday celebration. Unfortunately we will not return again.
Our meals were delightful as ever, but the end of the evening killed any chance of our return and erased all of the satisfaction we'd experienced to that moment.
It does not seem reasonable in 2017 to refuse to split the check to accommodate multiple credit cards. It does not seem ethical to conceal this point until the moment of payment (we asked early on for separate checks making it obvious that one person would not be treating the entire group). Further, last year we asked for separate checks without any problem.
We were running way late for a scheduled Christmas tea. I called and was concerned that we would not be seated or miss part of the event. Everyone could not have been nicer or more gracious, after our rude behavior. The tea was lovely, the food delicious and the service top notch.
The Christmas Tea has become a tradition for me. Each year I bring a different special friend. The Christmas decorations are beautiful. The piano music is a delightful accompaniment to a delicious afternoon tea. Staff is always friendly, well-trained and accommodating.
Food was delicious, but service uneven. Here for Christmas tea. First tea served barely warm and hadn't steeped long enough. Mini sandwiches tasty, especially mini cheddar biscuit with ham. Long waits for tea refills and between courses. Scones really good. Dessert served buffet style. Our table went last and previous diners cleared out most of offerings. Desserts were not replenished. Nice to do once, but regular lunch menu better value.
Went for the Christmas Tea. We were seated at a table right in the middle of the main room yet were repeatedly passed by for service. We were the last to get our tea and our first course. The majority of the time, Tea was not steeped long enough and/or was cold. Some servers were fantastic, most were lackluster. Food was delicious and appropriately “fancy.” Decor was beautiful and festive. Carolers were a special touch. Dessert spread was fantastic.
Charming space with excellent food and attentive service. If you are lucky enough to get there when they have lamb shank, do not hesitate but order immediately! The main course crepes are also wonderful, as are the sizeable dessert crepes. Don't miss the bakery goodies--either for dessert or to take home.
It's also wonderful for a leisurely breakfast/brunch--leisurely because many of the dishes are made to order and simply require time (e.g., spinach crepes to die for!)
We dine out often, and every time we come to Suzette's it doesn't disappoint. choose a reasonably priced outstanding burgundy wine that paired well with our meal. The kitchen is putting out classic French food with a twist and some unique original creations. Highly recommended!
I brought my 8 year old daughter for the Christmas Tea. She had a wonderful time. The servers were very attentive. They saw to it we have what we need although the place was a full house. The food presentation is great! But The food were just good and not exemplerary. They offered the first course, sandwiches, multiple times. They had good variety. I was surprised that they only served two pieces of scones, one with regular size and another one in smalle size. The cream is close to butter instead of the clotted cream. Other than that, I would recommend this place to try an afternoon tea for first timer. Though, I would not return any time soon and planning to just try a different afternoon tea.
The service was terrible but our server was trying very hard to keep up. I think they are understaffed and quite frankly, have been for a while. The last few times I've been there, the service has been terrible, the food is not as good as it once was and the place needs some sprucing up. You're not greeted at the door despite someone is there looking at you walk in. This was my 3rd attempt at allowing them to redeem themselves but I think its not going to recapture what they had when they 1st started. Its a shame, but we'll have to go elsewhere for our tea/brunch from now on
I took my Great-Aunt to Suzette's Creperie for English Afternoon Tea. It was delightful and delicious. We enjoyed an unhurried lunch in this quaint, quiet setting for over two hours and were not rushed. It was our choice to linger, the Tea was delectable and the room reminded us of a Victorian parlor.
I highly recommend stopping in for lunch or making a reservation for Afternoon Tea. We can't wait to go back.
Really super disappointing have been wanting to have brunch here for two years. Saved a table for my son and I and when we got there there was NO ONE at the hostess stand. NO one at the counter. Now mind you we did see the hostess and servers and they saw us as they were running around in the back. No one even bothered to acknowledge us. No one. How rude. The dining room was empty so I'm not sure what the hold up was. We got there at the end of brunch at 1:30. Then a diner had to.come from the dining room to pay and had no time left to have dessert because they had been ignored for so long by their server. Never will I ever go here again or recommend. What a joke. And how rude. If I could give zero stars I would.
We go to Suzette's expressly to listen to Judy Roberts and Greg Fishman. The food, service, etc., are always superior. I had the pork tenderloin and my wife had the spinach quiche. Both were inventive, seasoned to perfection, and absolutely delicious. And Judy and Greg provide grown-up entertainment. Thanks, Suzette's, for a wonderful evening--again!
Our server was a young woman who knew very little about being a good server at a fine dining establishment and knew even less about the menu. She poorly described the escargot special and it ended up being nothing like any escargot I've ever had; but for the worse. The restaurant was fairly full, yet it appeared there were only 2 servers. The food, overall, was only fair. The best thing about our entire evening was the wonderful piano player and decor. Unfortunately, neither of which was the main reason we picked the restaurant originally. Maybe it was just a "bad night", but we probably won't be back.
Suzette’s is well known among the Wheaton gentry. My daughter and I have regular traditions to go to the Mothers Day brunch and the Christmas tea. This year I added in Bastille Day and my friend’s birthday. It’s intimate place with small bistro qualities. Live piano music makes it special.
Initial impression was excellent with a great appetizer and drinks. Waited 15 minutes after appetizer for salad. Waitress forgot the salad and brought it with main dish. Both "meat" dishes were over-cooked- no flavor. Vegetables and potato fries were soggy. Ordered coffee and dessert. They forgot to bring our coffee with dessert. waited another 10 minutes for coffee Waitress was not qualified to serve in this restaurant. Needs training. Our dining experience was not worth the $200 tab.
Recommendation: Do not order any meat dishes at dinner. Stick to crepes and tea.
