“Can be awesome but hit or miss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

I have gone here many times, including for years for office Xmas private parties. Mostly great food, the only French restaurant in the area. But sometimes it feels a bit off kilter there and gloomy. Waitstaff sometimes odd.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

Went for Christmas Eve dinner, this was our third visit. My family all enjoyed their meals. The french onion soup is perfectly balanced with sweet caramelized onions, beef stock and cheese, I have to say it's even better then mine, I'll have to hit the kitchen and work on my recipe! The snails were tender and garlicky, perfect for the crusty bread to sop up all the juicy goodness.We had lamb with a merlot reduction, duck in a casis sauce, filet au poivre, and a steak frites. Everything was delicious, the sauces were excellent, everything we've had here is excellent. Service was pleasant with good knowledge of the menu shown by the waiter. Can't wait for my next dinner here, tres jolie bon!

“One of my most favorite French Restaurants!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

My family and I have been frequent visitors at Le Canard Enchaine over the past 7 years.
Every visit has been better than the previous one!- The atmosphere, the food, the service- simply perfect!

Last Sunday we had the French Onion Soup- I still feel the good taste! We also had the Duck Liver Pate and Tossed Mesclun Salad- AMAZING!

For Entree we had the beef stew (one of the specials) and the Salmon. Both were very good.
The highlight as always was the Tarte Tatin!

The wine selection is nice and reasonably priced.

This restaurant definitely justifies the 1.5 hours drive from NYC!- Chef Jean Jacques Carquillat at its best!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

Excellent lunch began with a pleasant seating and then the scrumptious onion soup. The entree we chose was superb... Coffee and dessert. Yes! But only because it was too pleasant to leave. :) thoroughly enjoyable.
