Seated on a flowery first-floor terrace overlooking Lac Leman, we were well disposed to be wowed by Le Chat Botté. In its favor are numerous delectable amuses-bouches and beautifully presented dishes. A tiny glass of cold cucumber and mint soup, mushroom mousse with truffles, and cherries with balsamic vinegar and sorbet stood out in particular. The charming sommelier offered good advice on local wines to match our food.
But our pleasure was somewhat marred by a lapse in service that was inexcusable at the prices charged. We had to ask three times for a second glass of wine, which finally appeared as my husband was finishing his main course.
Most of what we ordered was beautiful and delicious. A couple of items, though well prepared, missed the mark (squash blossom with artichoke-stuffed pasta was more odd than appealing).
All in all, we were a bit disappointed in our splurge on a Michelin-starred restaurant that fell below the standards we expect.
