We were in Wakefield in October of this year and were lucky enough to find this excellent restaurant. The staff were most pleasant and made us feel very welcome. Both of us ordered from their burger menu and agreed that these were the best burgers that we had ever had. They were a wonderfully interesting combination of great food items... More

Went to Chez Eric a couple weeks ago. Small place with very friendly staff (the owner is the Chef and his brother works there too!!). Great atmosphere and very good food; the menu is 'short', but they obviously specialize in what they do!

I was able make reservations here for a Saturday night, which is always nice. There's limited parking on site, but plenty of the free kind a hundred meters down the road in the municipal lot. The building is a "converted house" and the food has a home-cooking vibe to it, so you might feel like you're at the chef's dinner... More

We visited Wakefield for a wedding and the reception dinner was held here in the evening. The restaurant, from the outside, looks like the rest of Wakefield - well used and a little rough, but Chez Eric will truly impress once you head in. The service was great - very attentive to our needs, brought every course with seemingly perfect... More

Went here for lunch. Menu was extremely limited about 6 choices. Catfish sandwich was delicious, my wife had the classic burger and it too was yummy.

We were disappointed in both our meals here even though we had driven out of our way based on the reviews. The soup was unfortunately watery and the salad ordinary. The mixed bowl I had with lentils, rice, spices etc just didn't come together somehow. Too bad and I guess everyone is entitled to an off day. They had a... More

My party of 10 enjoyed a lovely meal in the privacy of the upstairs room. The staff was attentive without being intrusive. When I had informed the staff earlier in the week that several guests were gluten-intolerant, the chef graciously adjusted the menu. The food was very good. Can't wait to return.

Great food. We used our groupon but will go back next time even without it. The only thing I can say negative about it is the uncomfortable seats as the place is quite rustic. The servers are very nice and friendly. Our server was very helpful and suggested that we should split the salad if we were ordering a main.... More
