I dined here back in Nov 2015 but only got around to review it now. The restaurant maintained their Michelin star so I suppose the quality is still maintained till now. Only the menu would've changed by now. Overall it was a nice experience. Place feels luxurious, and the service is attentive. Starting with amuse bouche --- pumpkin cream and... More

We enjoyed the special mushroom menu they had at the time, every course was better than the last, but we must commend the chef in charge of the mushroom creme brulee, absolutely one of the best things I've had EVER. The service was great. We asked for a wine pairing with the five-course menu, and the sommelier was just great,... More

Food was perfect as expected but i would expect a bit more from the ambiance. The decoration was really basic and the green plastic chandeliers just annoying for my eyes. In a restaurant like this i think it has to be a whole...not just the food..

I had the occasion of dining at Le Chat Botté for a special event organized by my firm. The chef had prepared a special menu with a zine for every dish. Despite being quite a large group, the service was attentive and worthy of this kind of restaurant.

My husband and I were sadly disappointed in Le Chat-Botte. We have had the pleasure of eating in a few of the worlds 1-3 starred restaurants. This was by far our least favorite. Although the service was impeccable the food was not that great. Very sad to have waisted our night out here.
