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 came from London to visit family in the area and had a truly wonderful evening at La Marmite. La Marmite is a true fine dining experience with the food presented immaculacy and cooked to perfection. All the staff and the Maitre d’ were very knowledgeable and advised us on our food choices and complementary wines. The evening entertainment created... More

This restaurant is such a romantic restaurant on a busy street and when you walk in the door you feel as though you have been transplanted to a mansion in Europe . It's fine dining at its best . I intend on taking my husband and daughters there to celebrate our anniversary . Thanks for the wonderful food and service... 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.

Just had dinner with friends at La Marmite. We each had wonderful meals and tried each others. No one had anything but raves for lobster bisque, duck breast, filet mignon, and veal chop. Desserts of Espresso Creme Brûlée and Gateau were equally wonderful.

When restaurant's are sold or there is a management change, there is always a concern about what will happen next. My wife and I were thrilled to find that La Marmite has been transferred to a new owner who cares and is intent on taking it to new heights. La Marmite has always been an iconic venue housed in a...

This is the first time we have eaten here and it wasn't inexpensive. The food was very good as was the service. It could use a little fixing up but I'm guessing the new owners will work on that.

My wife and I have been coming to this place for the last 10 years or so, and have always enjoyed the atmosphere, service, and (of course) the food. Although under new management (for the last year or so), La Marmite is (we think) better than ever. They even retained a lot of experienced and trusty employees. If you care,... More

Had a delicious meal last week. Loved the Arctic Char - cooked perfectly and the presentation was gorgeous! My husband had lamb that was incredible. The scallop appetizer and seafood crepe were wonderful. Service was impeccable! What a great evening!! So glad there are still places like La Marmite around - it is the way dining should be!
