La Fleur is an anomaly in the restaurant desert surrounding the Chautauqua Institution. Situated in a large old house, and only open during the summer, it is run by a top-notch chef. There is nothing lacking in this restaurant, from the food, to the atmosphere, to the service. Everything is top quality. All dishes are interesting, beautifully prepared and classically... More

There isn’t much fine dining in Chautauqua, so we were thrilled to find such exceptional French cuisine in a magnificent setting. Located inside a historic red brick mansion, La Fleur can compete with the best offerings in any big city, including the wine list. The chef’s tasting menu was well worth the $75 price, but since the entire menu changes... More

A delightful surprise for dinner here in Chautaugua, La Fleur is a wonderful restaurant for dinner. The white table cloths and traditionally uniformed wait staff set the stage for a fine meal. Appetizers are nicely prepared with some interesting combinations to enhance their taste. The salads, though limited in number, are also very good. Our party was split between seafood... More

We have enjoyed fine food around the world, and this restaurant is one of our favorites anywhere. Housed in a vintage brick home, with dining on the wrap-around porch and inside, the service is friendly, yet formal enough to complement the continental food. White table cloths, long-stemmed roses for the ladies at the end of the meal, servers in ties... More

We were staying at the Chautauqua Institution and were forewarned, brain food was on the menu, not food for gourmets. It was a wonderful surprise to discover this place with its ambiance, excellent service and fantastic food.

Restaurant a little pricey but lunch is more reasonable. The quiche is great. They send a trolley to Chautauqua Institution to pick you up. Nice shopping center next door.

We visit the Mayville / Chautauqua area every summer. For too long a time, area restaurants were so-so to good. La Fleur is a bright spot of fine dining in this area. All the dishes we tried were well proportioned, very flavorful without being over bearing, fresh tasting with a variety of selections. Le Fleur will continue to be on... More

We had a wonderful meal at la Fleur. The beet salad was delicious, the pear and blue cheese tart was exquisite. The veal Tenderloin was excellent, the rack of lamb was a generous portion and very good, and the filet mignon was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed the profiteroles for dessert. The atmosphere is comfortable and conducive to conversation. The service... More
