To summarize, the restaurant serves high quality French cuisine, the setting is very nice, however the service could be slightly improved. I went there in July for a birthday. The restaurant had setup a high chair for my one year old baby, which was already well appreciated. In terms of the food, one of us ordered the menu, one of... More

We booked well in advance for dinner on a Saturday and arrived early. We were first seated very close to the grill, which is located to the back of the main dining room and, but I asked to be moved as it was a very hot evening and the staff kindly obliged and moved us closer to the front, where...

Lived up to expectations with excellent food carefully prepared and presented. Glad we booked in advance as it was full on a Tuesday evening. Courtyard garden so no 'view' but food and service more than adequate compensation.

This is reputedly, based on TA reviews, the highest recommended restaurant in Epernay. It is well deserving of that accolade. We loved the meal, the service and the setting. On the night we went, it had been a hot day, 30+ and all the settings were outside giving the restaurant a “fashionable street” feeling. The restaurant was fully booked so... More

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
