Grilled Foie Gras

First to arrive for dinner, chef was preparing foie gras over the wood fire, looked fantastic. The sommelier guided the champagne selection to a 2008 Millesime from the very extensive list, which was a wonderful find. Had the grilled foie gras with dorade and agneau. The mont blanc topped off the... read more

We are here on our last night in Epernay and wish we had discovered it earlier. We were recommended it by our hotel. The Escargot are absolutely delicious, and the veal main was cooked to perfection. The wine list includes a huge variety of champagnes (as expected in Epernay!) along with a good array of other French varieties. Definitely worth... More

Went here as two couples for dinner in Epernay. The escargot were fantastic as an entree. The crayfish in champagne were delicious, the sauce was heavenly. The brains as a main were perfect - comes with vegetables as a sort of braise. They serve a multitude of champagnes obviously as well as grand cru and other great Bordeaux and Bourgogne... More

We are regular visitors to the region, and always try to eat well, but La Grillade is the one place we always try to come back to. It has no pretensions to cutting edge cuisine or serious formality: it is just excellent food, beautifully cooked. The wine list (or at least the Champagne list - we have never gone beyond!)...

If you get only one item on the menu...make it the escargot. But be sure you get a dozen of these delicious delicacies, because if you only get six you will be wishing for more. The escargot was mild and smooth flavor with a fabulous butter garlic sauce and a tasty little crouton on top. So good. The sommelier was... More

The food here is great and the service is absolutely terrific. The service is the best I've ever seen in France, in fact its better than most places in the USA. The champagne list is extensive and fair in price, about a 40 percent mark up compared to local shops. The champagne by glass is served out of magnums which... More

This place must be full most of the time. Reasonable prices for good quality. Classical French cuisine. Loved the cheap champagne aperitif at half the price you get elsewhere in France and good one too. Superb wine list. Pleasant atmosphere and attentive service. Grill in the restaurant.

The best meal we had in France. I should stop there, but I have to write more: unpretentious and very helpful service, an enormous wine list, a wood-fired grill in the dining room that makes it at once cosy and aromatic, delicious food (clearly with a focus on grilled proteins) that's never simplistic or twee, and a very convenient location....
