“It's OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

This was our first try at the "new" Cobbs Mill Inn. The food was fine and the service was OK. It just did not feel as comfortable as it used to be. It used to be a great, comfortable New England restaurant. Now it's just another OK place when you can't think of somewhere else to go.

“Owners don't pay their employees!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

We dined here recently and noticed our regular server wasn't their anymore. We were disappointed to hear she left because she always gave us great service. When we asked where she was we were told a lot of people left because Elayne can't seem to pay her employees for the work they do for her! My husband and I were shocked to hear this and very upset. How could this women be so selfish to not pay her employees who work so hard for her? I hope that someone local will read this and stop supporting this crazy lady who clearly is in over her head. It is only a matter of time before this place goes out of business again. I feel so bad for all those people that Elayne owes money too. There is a lot of talk going around about how she owes everyone money and writes bad checks to purveyors and to her employees. I hope the people of Weston will stop supporting her! I also hope the town will try and shut her down! Elayne should be ashamed of herself for not paying her employees!

“Glad they are back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Although there have been negative comments about the restaurant, let me put to rest thse comments by stating that we have enjoyed the restaurant for many years and that the revitalization of the Inn was a joy and that with the return of the maitre d' and the new chef, we enjoyed the ambiance, the food and the wine list. Theresa, our waitress could not have been more attentive to our needs and the fact that Elayne wore a fabulously well fitted dress only added to our enjoyment. Her vistiting the tables would have been nice, since it was early on a Saturday night.

“Best Experience EVER!!!! Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a good time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We just held our daughter "Sweet Sixteen" party at La Roue Elayne. We were so impressed by the service we received. The staff and Elayne herself made all our guests feel so comfortable. My daughter will cherish the experience she had forever. Her friends even want to host their parties there. Would HIGHLY recommend anyone to have them cater your next event. They even have a sweet cafe to cater to younger or sweet-toothed guests.

“40th Wedding Anniversary--Just Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

My husband and I just celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at La Roue Elayne. Everything was just perfect! The food was delicious, the waterfall setting beautiful, and the staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. There were 32 guests at our party, and all of them raved about the beautiful waterfalls and the outstanding meal they were served. Working with Elayne was effortless, and her suggestions and advice were excellent. I would highly recommend La Roue Elayne if you are planning a special occasion.
