Appetizers were all very good from 1/2 orders of pasta , jumbo shrimp, Littleneck clams & Grilled Octopus. Entries were equally good, the Pappardelle Bolignesse was tasty and had little zing to it. Be aware the attire tends to me a little more formal then most restaurants, many gentlemen were wearing jackets and some with ties as well.

La Marmite did a wonderful job at making my mom’s 90th birthday a special event. Bari, our Events Manager, and Mike, the General Manager, were outstanding at planning the ladies’ luncheon. Hosts walked around with delicious glasses of red Sangria (with fresh fruit) and endless trays of hors d’oeuvres (Brie & Walnut Puff Pastry, Smoked Salmon, and Mini Crabcakes –... More

La Marmite has a lot going for it. The service is great, the rooms are quiet. It is elegant in a quiet way . The food is good. We liked the whole Branzino. The pastas were good, but overpriced. The drinks were expensive at $15 each for glass of wine or whiskey. Our main objection is to the overall price--... More

Came here for Valentine's Day and could not have been more pleased. The food was exquisite, there was live music playing and the atmosphere was great. I will definitely come back here.

Oh yes! There are still some lovely spots in America where staff, surroundings, and cuisine shine! Lovely old inn, outstanding valet parking, caring coat checks, charming and handsome Manuel always awaiting guests and in charge, eager to please well attired wait staff, and delicious food at every course. Table flowers are lovely, usually roses, and an extra rose for all... More

We've eaten here for many years for special occasions and it always meets our high expectations. This is a big old house converted into a restaurant, so it has smaller rooms and is quieter than so many restaurants now. Service and food never disappoint. We even splurge on dessert.
