We have enjoyed a fabulous year of dining experiences. Le Cinq was definitely the pinnacle! From the moment we entered Hotel Georges V we were embraced with warmth and greetings. The lobby was stunning with couture gowns from Fashion Week--and we have never encountered such elegant and artistic displays. The flowers in the atrium, lobby, hallways and restaurant were gorgeous varying purple hydrangeas with white on white gladiolas, lilies and orchids. It was breathtaking!
Our Cotes champagne to start was sublime. The book with wine selections was practically too heavy to lift--another perfect reason to have a competent sommelier. We ordered the tasting menu and couldn't recommend it more highly. Appetizers were creative and tasty, the main courses fresh and perfectly portioned, gourmet cheese selections arrived via a cart that left us agape, and the several desserts afterwards all pleased the palate to finale. Our service was exceptional. There was never a lapse with too soon or too late platings arriving tableside. More important to us was the fact the the waitstaff was not at all stuffy and would converse to answer questions on food preparation and flavor combinations. ...And the lovely red wine that enhanced this fabulous meal was tended throughout.
The restaurant has a beautiful blend of elegance combined with traditional French cooking, but includes a component with a playful presentation aspect during certain courses that invites fun and fusion. Both my husband and I didn't want the evening to end! Thank you Le Cinq for your attentiveness and professionalism in making our 40th Anniversary dinner so special. And a little postscript, the photograph you took and presented to us at the end of our awesome dinner was such a nice touch and much appreciated. Yes, the experience is expensive, but one understands that when they book a reservation. One of our best credit card swipes ever! Merci Beaucoup for making it so worthwhile.
