We had a great dinner at La Grillade Gourmande. The food was delicious, well presented, and the service was friendly and attentive. Chef Bertrand was present and very interested in our satisfaction with the meal - and saw us out at the end of the evening.

We booked by email in advance and were treated like regulars. The chef came out to greet us and the waiters were all lovely and very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine. Our efforts to speak French were noted and appreciated but we communicated very easily with a combination of both French and English and felt at ease. The... More

Lunch visit for four of us, after champagne tasting. Food was superb, classic french dishes, not too fancy, not heavy, just quality ingredients beautifully prepared. The service was elegant, friendly and the waiter we had spoke excellent English, although the menu was translated so no issue. Desserts were a big wow. Highly recommended. Can see why current no.1 tripadvisor and... More

My advice would be to book as otherwise you may be very disappointed. Christophe and his staff were excellent hosts on our visit. We were all made to feel very welcome during our time there and, without prompting, his lovely wife Kristel very kindly provided a shawl when the temperature cooled down, a wonderful gesture. The food was innovative, well... More

This small, elegant restaurant lived exceeded my expectations. I called to make a reservation. The lady who answered the phone asked if I spoke French and, when I told her I did not, she rather brusquely handed the phone to a man, who I believe was one of our waiters for the evening. He took our reservation without problem. I... More

The restaurant was completely full on a Friday night but the flow of service and presentation of the food was excellent. Everyone was greeted by Christoph and made to feel quite welcome. I can only concur with all the other reviewers that this restaurant deserves its number one spot in Epernay.

Me and my partner love our food but sometimes you want a really good meal without the pomp and this was exactly that. Thoroughly recommend.

We visited this restaurant recently while on a small group tour of Champagne and Provence, and had just had a tasting session of excellent champagne at a small cave, so we were ready for an excellent meal and this place really delivered! The service was exceptional, including having the chef visit us at our table and wish us au revoir... More
