I always receive excellent service at this restaurant. The staff is attentive and make sure you always have whatever you may want. The food is outstanding and the ambience is exceptional. We visit as often as we can. It is a little pricey but well worth the cost. It's our special occasion spot.

La Foret was a terrific find. A little out of the way but worth the trip. The restaurant is lovely, the staff gracious and accommodating and the menu is varied with something for just about any palate. Formal French country cooking that includes standards such as escargot and foie gras but specials such as elk (which was incredibly tender). The... More

This is my wife's favorite restaurant. We have been going to La Foret for well over 30 years and it never varies, always 5 star. Everybody needs a special place to celebrate life's big and little victories and special events. This is ours, even if the special event is that we haven't been there for a while. It's a little...

Food & service are always outstanding. I would enjoy something new on the menu from time to time, aside from the halibut and wild game specials.

La Foret is nestled in a suburb. It is off the beaten track but well worth the visit. White table cloths and superb service. Meals that while attractive are also filling. Great choice and variety. The chef is top notch and the food and service show it. Soufflé dessert tops it off nicely. Really solid performance all around. Would happily... More
