“High Reputation .. can't deliver”
This was highly recommended by friends who have great taste and also highly recommended by Trip Advisor Contributors. Well, making a reservation was easy but the rest I wish I could forget. We entered the foyer of the beautiful building and were not greeted or acknowledged in any way. We were shuffled to our seat in a room that overly hot and crowded and loud. The menu was not in English nor did they have an english verison of the menu, the server was not bothered really to talk to us and explain to us in detail what the menu consisted of, so we made do, the wine menu though extensive was as varied as it should be for a restaurant of this caliber. I had let them know in my reservation that i was allergic to nuts, but the Amuse Bouche came out with nuts until I mentioned something it was taken away. The 1st Course was not worth mentioning and a waste of money, bland and effortless (in a bad way). The Wine Sommelier gave me no help what so ever, thank god i know my wine and ordered a great bottle. The busers were kids that did not know English but we had one sweet girl that tried her best, but they all were running around (running !!) throughout the restaurant which did not make is a pleasant atmosphere. Main Course was OK, nothing special but at least it was seasoned and cook well. Dessert was it's saving grace with a decadent Chocolate Dessert for my husband and really lovely Black Currant Souffle for me. It was not just us, many tables around us were also experiencing similar service, you can tell when someone is not happy. A table behind us (2 gentlemen) asked 3 times for their check and probably waited at least 30 mins for the check ....we waited a little less but still waited too long that i nearly walked out. So 300+ Euro later, the only part that was worth it was the dessert and wine....don't waste your money when there are some wonderful restaurants in Beaune to enjoy. I suggest to the restaurant to train your staff property, have english menus, and train your staff properly in the service they should be providing for a restaurant with you reputation.
