“Pleasantly Surprised”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Initially my husband and I were planning on having dinner at Tori No Shu, but since they were closed for Ramadan...we ended up next door at Brasserie Angelique. From the moment we walked in, we were pleasantly surprised! The ambiance was incredibly lovely and inviting...not the usual air of pretentiousness that seems customary w/ most french restaurants. It almost felt like we were transported back into the 1920's...fun and lively!

We were offered a warm greeting right away, then shown to a table set perfectly for two. We found out later that John Paul Gaultier had designed the dishes and various detailing in and around the restaurant...very elegant, but not over stated. My favorite touch was the twined up bunch of lavender placed in mini glass vases on each table...simple elegance can go a long way too!

We weren't overly hungry, so opted out of wine...but will definitely have to come w/ more space in our bellies next time b/c the wine on everyone else's tables looked so refreshing! We started w/ the mushroom soup and lobster bisque. Both offered unique flavors, top notch! The mushroom soup was a little on the salty side for me, but my husband thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the lobster bisque so much, I endulged and used some of the freshly baked baguette (brought accompanying some deliciously fresh butter post ordering) to soak up the last of my it! YUM!!

For my main, since I wasn't very hungry at all...I ordered the lobster/tomato gnocci salad. The waiter mentioned that it was incredibly small (as most french portions are...and should be in my opinion :) and that he would double the size for me, so it would suffice as a main. I told him not to worry...small was good. When it arrived it was the perfect size. Not too small, but not too big either. I discovered when we got the bill, he did double the size...which actually suited me perfectly! Glad he took the initiative!!

My husband ordered the salt encrusted fish (can't remember which type...). It was rolled to our table on a cart and after a 6 min presentation, which was quite fascinating, (the waiter had to chip away at it to reveal the perfectly cooked fish from beneath) he was enjoying the perfectly captured flavors.

We also order sides of green beans and spinach. Both cooked perfectly (not oily like most other restaurants).

Portion sizes were perfect.
Food was delicious.
Service was incredible...friendly and informative.
Ambiance was inviting and lovely.
Price was average...good quality and experience, so maybe even above average! (think we spent around 350aed...ordered a french beer, two soups, 1 main, 1 dbl size salad and sparkling water)

Will DEFINITELY go back and would highly recommend it for others!!

“se tres fantastique !!!! wonderful experience !!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Me and my wife have been to Brasserie Angelique on Thurday July 11th for dinner. The restaurant ambience is very elegant retrò, dining @Angelique remember you the "The Great Gatsby" atmosphere with large crystal chandeliers and velvet sofas. My wife has chosen a special set menù with 4 courses instead I have taken an incredible tasty Tartare de Bœuf for starter (seasoned in front of me) with black truffle and a whole Canette à l’Orange served with french fries and wine sauce. A good bottle of Belleruche Chapoutier 2010 from CÔtes-du-RhÔne (granache and sirah blend) throughout the meal. For dessert delicate raspberry tart and rosè champagne zabaione with berries.

“FORGOT TO RATE!! BUT DID LEAVE WITH AN IMPPRESSION”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I celebrated my wife's Birthday here last March on the 3rd ... And I totally forgot to write a review. Well honestly, I have been very lazy but really pushed myself today. I must tell you that it has been months since we ate there ... but it has left an ever lasting impression on myself and my wife.

We have decided to make this restaurant out special place, in which we will spend every birthday there. It is truly a very unique place, and the atmosphere is out of this world. I think about the food there at all times, the service ... so amazing, professional staff ... i love it.

Please rest assure that you have created a fan for a life time. Keep the momentum going!! Looking forward to dining with you again soon ...
