We had a special-occasion dinner at Maison Blanche. We found the a la carte menu to be limited, and the food, presentation, and ambiance to be less special than we might have expected. The service was excellent. Thus, while our dinner was good, we were disappointed that the experience hadn't lived up to our expectations.

Maison Blanche is in a nondescript old motel turned condo, but the restaurant itself is elegant and the finest of French cuisine, ambiance, service and wines that you will find anywhere. It is a gem and a must-visit for anyone who is a foodie.

I have never written a review in my life but Maison Blanche is worth writing one for. The food and the service were both impeccable. Thank you to the chef and the wait staff especially Victoria Martinez for making this an unforgettable evening.

This was by far one of the best meals we had while on the island for a week. The servers and presentation of each entree was outstanding.

The quality of the food was very good, albeit a very limited choice (4) of á la carte entrées. To substitute one of these into one of the prix fix menus there would have been a surchage. It was not possible to have one of the prix fix entrées as an á la carte item. The wine list was given... More

Remember to give 24 hour notice to order your souffle dessert. There are no views- all windows are blocked by curtains but it is all parking lot and buildings anyway. It is intimate and the service is excellent. We both had the rib eye steaks and they were cooked and seasoned perfectly. The salads were terrific as well as the... More
