My Dad, brother and bridal party chose Cafe Escadrille for my wedding shower. The atmosphere was beautiful, the food was great - and I work in a function hall - this was not "banquet food" - this was delicious, well-presented and WARM - for a plated dinner for almost 100 people! The service was impeccable - my Dad, brother and sister in law were all impressed by the service prior to the event - the banquet manager was very accommodating. And the cake was delicious too! We're planning to return on Saturday for my Dad's birthday - can't wait!

I am extremely disappointed in the Escadrille. The food served at my function was very average. My salad had wilting, slimy lettuce in it. The vegetarian meal was an uncreative pasta with tomato sauce. Servers picked up my guests' plates before they were done with their meals. And the icing on the cake -- the surprise charges on the bill. The function coordinator did not fully inform me of the cost of the meals and another miscellaneous charge. When I informed her of my disappointmenting experience, she apologized but did not offer to credit my bill. The Escadrille used to be known as a great restaurant. Not anymore. Most certainly not worth the price!

I used to live in Boston and had the pleasure of dining at Cafe Escadrille many times. Whenever I am there I almost feel guilty, like I don't deserve to betreated so wonderfully or eat so well!

They have two seating areas, the cafe and the gourmet. The gourmet is amazing! My fiance and I have always been lucky enough to be seated in one of the very private booths that are in a horseshoe shape, very romantic. They pull the table out for the ladies so you don't have to shimmy your way across the bench, always a nice touch!

The service is impecable with no detail overlooked. Every time I took a sip of water, someone would come by and refill it. Silverware is replaced after every course and crumbs wiped off the tablecloth.

The food is delicious, we always get the tableside caesar salad for two. The steaks and fish are cooked to perfection. The crepes with vanilla ice cream and strawberries flambeed in Grand Marnier are heavenly.

We only visit Cafe Escadrille on special occasions. Anything more than that would take away from the "specialness" of it. Be sure to venture up to Burlington if you want to feel special and eat like a King and Queen for a night!
