“Worth diverting off the i87 interstate.”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Snails and steak. Yes someone close to my pen loves garlic & butter and would struggle to stay alive if forced to become a vegan...Especially at this delightful French restaurant with genuine real live French chef in tow. I have just seen the wonderful movie about France and food 'the hundred foot journey.' Well this French restaurant is, thank God, much more relaxed than the one run by Helen Mirren. Charming, great food, super friendly ( how hard is it to be friendly? No idea says the Parisians we have never tried it...) Save yourself an air ticket. Kingston is where you need to go, not Paris. Well apart from the glorious Louvre, majestic Notre Dame, the romantic Seine, the architecture, the way they even light their bridges...ok screw it. Go to Paris but just go via le canard enchaine in Kingston.

“Paris without a passport...”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Not our first visit to Le Canard Enchaine (it's an annual special lunch when we're visiting Kingston). Friendly welcoming staff and amazing food. You can't go wrong with the garlic snails (among the best I've eaten). Fun "riff" on sushi for my tuna entree - hot/spicy sauce, wasabi cream and tasty rice - all beautifully composed. We split a delicious almond tart for dessert (or maybe we were fighting over it?). Keep up the amazing experience.

“Excellent in all ways”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

This restaurant is a great experience - the kind of friendly, neighborhood place that one dreams of finding but so rarely do. The wait staff is uniformly friendly and knowledgeable. The food is, in general, excellent. Over the past 15+ years, we have some to this restaurant nearly a dozen times although we do not live close by, and each time it has been great.

“Sheer Parisian Bliss”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Well, you could possibly want to marry the entire wait staff. Or just move in to the restaurant dining room. You'd be in Paris. In France. Amazing food. Beautiful rooms. Exquisite service. What more do you want? A plane trip?

“Amazing”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Get the duck. Simply amazing. A little on the pricey side, but certainly worth it. You won't be disappointed
