We were in Chapel Hill for New Years Eve and had dinner at La Rez. The 3 course $50 prix fixe was a good value compared to other restaurants in the area that were doing prix fixe however at all including La Rez you probably end up spending more than when dining and ordering off the regular menu. The wine... More

Always a great place to dine on any ocassion. We ventured out on a rainy, bleak evening and had a wonderful meal at a table by the fireplace. This restaurant has been a favorite place since it opened in the 70's

Noone seems to know what they are doing - the restaurant is not very pretty - our waiter was not very good - and worst of all the food was a Big Disappointment - none of us would go back. It was family that dined but we are all adults.

My son's birthday was coming up. He is in that big meat and potato phase of life. Since it was a big milestone birthday, we wanted a special place. The other requirement was beef - maybe Beef Wellington, like Dad makes?....well. First, it was the best beef wellington - ever...marinated using the Sous Vide method and prepared with St. Andre...

Had a group dinner in the front room, wonderful fire in the fireplace, great drinks, and simpy marvelous food. Every detail was taken to the max, the flowers were hand picked that day in the garden. Service was impeccable and all in all it was a wonderful place to have a group dinner!

I had sort of forgotten about this place which is not on the main drag in Chapel Hill. We drove by and decided to try it while in town recently. The menu is not extensive but has choices for most tastes and the prices are reasonable. We were happy with the food and the service. Our waiter, Zeke, was very... More

La Residence was a delightful surprise! At first glance at the restaurant and its menu, I was certain we were going to be in for a mediocre experience. Appetizers and main courses were very reasonably priced, and there was nothing over-the-top about the decor of the restaurant itself. The wait staff, however, were super attentive and one's description of the... More

Pretty restaurant where two parties we attended were really lovely. The food was quite good and the space is great for a large crowd (though somewhat noisy, even inside, with a DJ on the patio).

My wife and I had a very enjoyable dinner at La Rez, our first experience. The ambiance is homey since this is an old house converted to a restaurant. Zak was our server, very professional and customer oriented. The meal was superb, salmon poached in oil on tri-colored fingerling potatoes garnished with a tarragon mousse, yum. My wife had a...

The ladies lunch group dined at La Rez in Chapel Hill today. It was relaxing, delicious, and the menu was quite good. The presentation was very nice, service outstanding and the portion sizes were great for our group. Le Residence (La Rez) has been a Chapel Hill fixture for MANY years and is a classic for this area.
