Used fellow trip advisor recommendations for this one and as usual, I wasn't disappointed. The chef may not have a michelin star yet, but he should be in the running for one. The 5 course meals (there are 3 variations to choose from depending upon the protein and the starter chosen), are centered around preparing the same protein, but 3... More

Loved this place. The menu is different: two primary ingredients each served three different ways. With a soup first, lemon granita in between the first ingredient plate and the second ingredient plate, it was interesting and tasty. My first ingredient was foie gras, second was young elk. Dessert was a similar multi-set of bites based on fennel and lemon. The... More

We last visited Le Patriarche at the end of May. We had also eaten there on our last trip and we were looking forward to going again. We took another couple with us and we were all blown away by the excellent food, wine and service. This truly is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at. I love... More

My partner and I ate at this place on a whim after sampling some wine at it when we were on a foodie tour. We were struck by its cute appearance, 5 star rating, and hearing about the food. It surpassed both our expectations! While it is pricey, if one were to eat a meal like this in Paris or... More

Was expecting fantastic food for a 5 diamond rating, but it didn't happen. The onion soup was down right awful. Bland broth over a raw piece of onion. The Elk was very tasty and the presentation was well laid out. The foie gras was average only. I enjoyed the desserts. We both wished we had eaten somewhere else especially spending... More

I will start by saying it was a wonderful wonderful dining experience but we were there as a double couple and were a bit disappointed with the food selections and honestly the quality has been far better in less expensive restaurants my husband and I have been to in the past. Overall, if your find something you like online it's... More

we went to eat at Le Patriarche last night 7 of us. Everybody was disappointed. Good, but under expectations. We went there thinking that a Five Diamond awarded restaurant would be exceptional. It is not. The worst part was the girls explaining the menus. They are not friendly. It was more like an oral contest. They never smiled and they... More

We knew about Le Patriarche since quite a while, but its newly awarded Five-Diamond convinced us to give it a try for a dinner. It is located in a little stone house, a off of St-Jean street. The environment is nicely appointed, although the tables are a tad close to each other. Unfortunately for us that night, behind us was... More

Yes we knew about the prix fixe price before hand, but was expecting better food quality and service (especially from reading tripadvisor's reviews) the food quality is very binary. chicken and fish were just blend. game poultry were too salty. even the lobster bisque is very salty. the minimum I would expect...

On our Saturday-night visit we ordered two different multi-course menus with wine pairings, so by sharing had a remarkably diverse dinner. Each of the three dishes within each course was very good to near-excellent, especially the foamy delights included in some of the trios. The wine pairings were also well chosen, and the service was efficient. We didn't experience long... More
