We arrived at this restaurant just after it opened at 5pm on Saturday. We did not have reservations as we were going to a play before and did not know the time it would end. Upon our arrival we were asked if we had reservations to which we said no. The hostess then took us to a table, upstairs and sat us at what she said was the only table not reserved. The table was actually fine though it was right off the stair landing. We noticed there were at least 10 tables that were not being used that were not near the stairs. We were told they were reserved. At the time our check arrived, close to 7p.m., we noticed there were still four tables empty. While the food and our service were excellent, the hostess treated us very poorly and was rather rude. Perhaps while en route we should have called for reservations and would most likely have received proper treatment. Our dinner started off on a very poor tone, thankfully, the food and our server was excellent. I would have given this a 5 star rating had we been treated better upon arrival, first impressions are lasting impressions.

Had lunch at an old favorite. It's been too long. The ambiance of the restaurant is wonderful. Not too elegant that it is uncomfortable. A bit European?
Lovely table setting.
We had lunch. Soups were thick and tastes. Crab cakes were just that. No heavy fillers. Great salads.
A keeper.

We have visited Cafe Chardonnay a few times over the past few years. We always enjoy the meal. I feel it is the best Duck L'Orange in town. Sometimes the service can be slow as they might be understaffed. One concern we had was the bread that was delivered to the table seemed "picked over" or previously served so we asked for new bread. We would go back.

This restaurant tucked in a strip shopping center inside has a lovely ambiance and turned out to be a good place for lunch. My partner had the daily special, oven-roasted meatloaf that was delicious, served with whipped potatoes and vegetables. I had lobster bisque, made with a good lobster stock, just creamy enough and with chunks of lobster.

Located in a strip mall but still has a really nice feel to it. The bar area is small but nice. It was packed the night we were there. We sat outside and had heaters on to stay warm. No problem. The food was really good. I had the Grouper which is caught locally and it was excellent.
