We had a wonderful experience (3 hours) at Le Patriarche. I would like to extend heartfelt thank-yous to the chef and to the staff. First, I want to thank the waitstaff. Unlike some other posters here, we had outstanding service. Given that we were in the wine cellar (and we quite liked our private dining experience), it meant that staff... More

Very nice room, good background music and artful food presentation. You choose between three fixed price five course meals (each going up a bit in price). Two courses of each meal consist of three preparations of the main ingredient We had the low end and the high end, with wine pairings. The Ces deux-là meal was squash soup, partridge, sorbet,...

We wanted a relaxed pace to enjoy this incredible food and wine experience, and that's exactly what we got. The staff walked us through a wonderful food and wine tasting over the course of three hours. Each course presented us with three different tastes of a single ingredient, which is the signature of the restaurant. A splurge but well worth... More

If you are looking for a VERY high-end experience where food is art and you don't care about the expense then look no further - however, be prepared to stay 2-3hrs because the pace is part of the experience. The Patriarche has 3 set menus (as of this writing) which change every couple of months - what we had was... More

I dislike food 'snobism', however, this restaurant is probably best left to foodies who appreciate nuanced creations, pairings and presentation. My husband, 16 yr old daughter and I enjoyed the quiet and intimate atmosphere were delighted to seeing how an ingredient can be prepared in three distinct ways. Off the beaten path, it is a destination restaurant, yet unpretentious. The... More

What a wonderful concept. One protein evolved through 3 presentations for a starter paired with a different, but complementary protein for the main. Delicious and interesting, an event not just a meal. We did the wine pairing and found it extremely effective and not what I would have ordered but glad I tried it their way. Great service, beautiful old... More

I picked this restaurant based on other recommendations. The atmosphere and ambience are lovely. The presentation of the food is amazing. However, for the most part I found the food very bland and tasteless, which really surprised me. This was the most expensive restaurant I have ever been too, way over priced, and I would not go back.

We took another couple there for their anniversary. It was by far one of the nicest dinners any of us had ever had. The food was surpassed only by the service which was impeccable. The place is a triple threat – Great Food, Great Service, and Wonderful Atmosphere! Do not hesitate to try it.

All good things come in threes, or so thinks the chef here who offers 3 menus of 3 courses. Each course is done 3 different ways. The approach is interesting and the execution is extremely solid. The only complaint of the evening was the after dinner decaf expressos, which were french press and very bitter. Friendly service in a historic... More
