For a first time at Le Patriarche, I did not have a lot in mind. I was blasted by the food trilogy and wine pairing! The foie gras was exquisite and the trilogy of Goose a great surprise! Even though the "nouvelle cuisine" portions might have been a bit light for a regular evening, the portions for the "after-holidays" was... More

We had a fabulous New Years Eve eve dinner. Our waiter Francis played a large role in making the evening special. The service was top notch, the food was inventive and delicious, and the setting was romantic and lovely. We wanted to bring Francis back to Texas -- with the chef of course. We loved the pace of the service... More

My wife and I had Christmas Eve dinner at Le Patriarche. We are both vegetarian and contacted the restaurant upon making our reservation a couple of months in advance to inform them of this fact. They were more than willing to accomodate our diet and we were served an amazing and lovely multi-course meal! The staff were very professional, the... More

Enjoyed the walk along the narrow cobblestone streets to get there. Businesses are so well decorated with greenery for the season. This is a small cozy establishment in a very historical part of the city. The service was very good. The meal was tasty, the pairings interesting. By the second last course, the accumulation of rich food was a bit... More

We liked the concept -similar to that of Lameloise Restaurant in Burgundy. Unfortunately our experience of some of the dishes and the wine pairing detracted from our enjoyment. Probably overpriced.

Was my meal here as good as at Restaurant SSS, Chez Boulay, or even Entrecôte Saint-Jean where I also ate? I guess, but at 5-6 times the cost was it as good? By no means. The meal was disappointing at best. The seared foie gras was the only standout. The pigeon course tasted of nothing. Frankly, a hamburger patty would... More

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
