The menu was somewhat limited, but the food was very good. The scallops were perfectly cooked. Nice wine selection. Pumpkin Cake desert with Pepita Brittle was excellent. The bar has a great happy hour, including a $6 Manhattan if your are there on the early side.

I had the opportunity to co-host a luncheon at LeMaire this past month. The staff was attentive and helpful, not only with setting everything up, but the execution as well...the food options were delicious and the service was top notch! The Peanut Soup and Pumpkin Spice Creme Brulee were big hits...I loved the Nicoise Salad (imagined).

The Jefferson Sunday Brunch was great. Delicious foods with a warm atmosphere. The waiter just spent more time talking with the other table instead of meeting our needs. Another worker walked by several times and retrieved our dishes that needed to be removed from table. We also had to let him know we needed refills quite often.

This place is amazing. Upscale and elegant. The perfect place to come and have a drink at the bar or to have a romantic dinner.

We have been eating at Lemaire during the Holidays for several years. The wait for a table can be long at times but it is well worth it. The food has never been anything less than excellent. The service is always good but sometimes we do wait around a bit for someone to attend to us. There is a new... More

From the ambiance, the food and the service, this is an establishment that beats all others in the region, hands down. Our server, Stephen was wonderful. We don't like hovering waitstaff and he seemed to know exactly when to appear. His food and wine recommendations were excellent. The only thing we don't like about this restaurant is the fact that...

One of my favorite things to do with friends for lunch. The whole experience is lovely. I've never been disappointed. Food is good, staff is attentive but not overbearing, ambiance is perfect. Side note: try the wine they feature. It's always good

Thank Judy B
