Going to La Cremalliere is like dining in France. The service is superb, friendly, not snooty as in NYC. Plates and silverware changed with each dish, fish knives, etc. A bit noisy though, tables are close and there was a self important lawyer near us. No cheese cart as they have in France. And surprisingly, no Amuse Bouche, always served in most French restaurants both here and in France. We had the tasting menu ($82/pp) plus an item. Most dishes were very good except the veal tenderloin with Calvados sauce which was pretty bland. Both the chicken breast with white truffle sauce and the duck confit were very good. Overall very good quality food, good service etc. But very overpriced...very. Dinner for two would be about $250-$300 or more including tips. Of course, depends on your wine selection. BTW, their sommelier is very good. Items like coffee are $4.50 and not France quality, etc. so be prepared for sticker shock. Save this restaurant for a very special occasion or expense account dinner. It is a very good restaurant but not value for value.

Dined here with a groupon for husbands bday, food was good although I was a bit miffed as we waited for about 20 minutes until we received a menu and there were about three tables occupied in the restaurant! Once we ordered, food came promptly but was puzzled about the initial long wait. Especially since I saw the help yapping in the front of the room.

All the courses were tasty.
A bit formal for our tastes but the food was good although without a groupon would be quite pricey.

Souffles were very sweet.

We dined here for my husbands birthday with a Groupon. We were treated as if we ordered ala carte. Food is French country, lots of butter in every dish. Really liked the Skate, Rissotto (not French, but delicious anyway), and the souffles were spectacular. Tastings menu was offered and enjoyed by both of us, we will be back.

It is a beautiful building. Feels like being in the French countryside. Service was great. French Fries (not on the menu) were outstanding. A special celebration restaurant!
