Great dining experience!

We went here with friends on a Saturday night. The restaurant was very busy - both inside and out. We choose to sit in the lounge because we wanted to hear the live music while we ate.

The restaurant is right next to the water with some beautiful large yachts to view whilst eating. We sat on an outside table to enjoy the weather and the view of the harbour. The service was excellent, fast and very attentive. L'escale is very well known for fresh seafood. I did not see the bill, so I am not really... More

Went for the well-known greenwich dinner... and had average limp dinner. Drinks were so-so, wine was okay and the food was average. The location is prime and supurb, however the food and service needs to improve to meet the expected level known for greenwich. There are other french restaurants far better in greenwich.

A great place for lunch. Great burgers, delicious omlettes, fresh seafood. The location is lovely. Nice outdoor dining by the harbor. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

The four of us were seated by the kitchen and practically had to wave our waiter down to get served....that said...the food was average...the prices were not...after forgetting to bring us our wine during dinner the waiter made a point of letting us know he had not charged us. Oh well!

Went there two evenings in a row for sundowners - fabulous, although frankly you have to wonder about allowing the huge stink pot of motor yacht steam in, park up right in front and steal everyones view just at sundown, letting everyone suck in the diesel fumes.. I can see service is a problem when it gets busy. we had... More

This is a pretty restaurant with a great location. Sitting on the terrace it seems as though you are on vacation with a water view. However we found the food to be only fair.

Love the accomodations the room service and mostly the food. There is a lovely view from the terrace and really good service at the restaurant and room service and they accomodated my companion service puppy so she could sit on my lap outside and didnt bother anyone. They were so kind and generous and lovely and the food is terrific
