Four of us dined at Signatures on Wednesday night, this being the time when the restaurant has a table d'hôte for about $100, a couple, including a bottle of wine. Two had decided to have this menu and two decided for the a la carte. We were informed we all had to have the same, either the table d'hôte or the a la carte. This was a disappointment but we opted for the 4-course table d'hôte. The first course was a marinated tuna, I was not wild about, the others thought it was okay. The second was a very nice clam chowder soup. Third was a bison filet a little tough but okay and the dessert was mediocre. The wine was a Portuguese red, and for the price, was acceptable. We were also disappointed with the fact that although this is supposed to be a restaurant of fine dining, there was a family with a small child, which in order to keep happy, they took turns parading it around the room. I am not adverse to children in a restaurant but in this case, we were supposed to be dining fine and I felt this was not an appropriate for a small child. All in all, our evening was a big disappointment.

I was lucky enough to dine at Signatures Le Cordon Bleu twice in a two week period for work events. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The food is excellent and the presentation is just lovely. Both times the service I received was amazing! We were so well taken care of, and staff had everything taken care of before I could even ask.
If you have the chance go to this restaurant-take it! You will not regret it.
A special thank you to Jennifer, the restaurant's event coordinator, who was so helpful in making last minute changes and easing my stress.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.

First - a reservation is required and worth it. We put our name on a wait list and received a call later in the day that they had an opening. On Wednesday's they have the option of the regular menu or a set menu which for $50 per person you get an appetizer, meal, dessert and a bottle of wine. We liked the offerings of the set menu and it was well worth the money. The quality of meal and service in another restaurant would have cost us over $100 per person. Highly recommend.

The service was wonderful. The food was exquisite, the cocktails were amazing, and again, the wait staff thought of everything and then some.

Everything was amazing. Cost was indeed high, but well worth every penny if you like to be treated like a King.
