Great service and best smoked salmon ever

The staff were very attentive and the chef made a courteous visit to the tables. We found out he smokes their salmon himself. It was fabulous. The rest of the meal was very good. Looking forward to visiting again.

It is, sadly, been too long since I was at the restaurant myself but have nothing but the best memories. Seeing some of these reviews brings it all back and will stimulate my return! :-) Not surprising, given that the Belgian chef-owner (Lieven Vercouteren) got the restaurant where he was head chef some years ago (La Briquetterie) a Michelin star....

This was the third time we have visited this excellent restaurant. Polite and friendly service in a relaxed and immaculate restaurant, you are made to feel valued by an appropriate interaction between staff and customers. We enjoyed the seasonal menu with a lovely rose champagne. As has happened on our previous visits, the chef patron spoke with us after our... More

Very good food The pheasant was very good. It is a big restaurant but only small toilets which meant there was a queue. The head waiter had exclusive control of the wine. He kept all the diners wine on a separate table in the middle of the restaurant. The only problem with that was we were served our deserts and... More

We went to le Theatre for lunch, as the reviews we read were quite encouraging. We were not disappointed. The service was very flexible and freindly (which is rare in France), the menu was neither too long nor too short, but there is enough to choose from (incl. vegetarian dishes). The chef is Belgian, but the dishes are typically French.... More

This dinner was a highlight of our trip. The filet was one of the best we have ever had. Dessert was exceptional. The ambiance was perfect, not too noisy, very comfortable. The wine that was recommended for our meal was most enjoyable. We will most certainly make a return visit.

Very nice interior and very friendly service. Had the cepes simply prepared with garlic. An outstanding dish. Followed this with faisant simply grilled accompanied with belgian endives. Good wine list, sommelier very helpful in recommending great champagne houses to visit. Even organized a visit for us.

We had a very good lunch, even in a hurry to go to a visit in Moët. But nothing was missed on a good French cuisine meal! Nice with children as well!

This is a very nice, well-located restaurant. I ate here as part of an 11-person tour group. We had a long table in the main dining room. The servers were very efficient for such a large group. The wine list was fairly priced. The food was served hot, and everyone in the group enjoyed everything. We were sorry it was... More

Many restaurants were closed but we were able to secure a booking through our hotelier. Le Theatre felt like the up market place for the locals in Epernay. Tables well spaced and quiet, great wine list and interesting seasonal fare including cepes and hare.
