Making a reservation is way to hard, you have to call the restaurant at exactly 62 days prior to the date that you want to eat. The price is expensive but it is worth it. We really loved the food, everything they served are perfectly cook the way you want it. Desserts are all delicious. My husband, who is a... More

After I proceeded to spill the water all over the table in the first few minutes, my girl friend and I had a spectacular dinner. The way staff handled my mishap made the experience too good to be true. A tremendous mix of comfortable meets over the top, made to look easy.

To get a reservation it wasn't easy. But once you get it. It's all worth it. All the thing you've heard about Thomas Keller's very special restaurant is so true.

I finally had the chance to eat at this legendary place and am pleased to say that it lives up to the hype! We were amazed and frankly speechless to be greeted by the maestro himself, Thomas Keller, who was gracious enough to come to meet us at the door. What followed over the next 3.5 hours was the most... More

We were greeted in a lovely fashion and shown to our table immediately. It was a busy evening. Our wait staff was incredible. They were friendly, classy and appropriate. A description of each course was offered with detail. I have a food allergy that was handled extremely well in the kitchen - I was very grateful! Every single food item... More

Was very excited to try this restaurant and was not disappointed but kept asking myself is food worth almost $1,000 dollars for two people. It was a great dining experience and the food was almost perfect. If... More

We went to the French Laundry during a time when their kitchen was under construction and their chefs were basically working in a shipping container. Over-all the food was very good...having been to a few Michelin restaurants, I think I was expecting more (but it was still very good). I guess I was expecting the "WOW Factor" when I went... More
