We just dined here this week. It used to be better, but it was never really great and it was never actually French, the way it pretends to be, in name only, "Le Chef". Although our waitress never read us the specials (that's a first!), and due to this omission, there was a mixup in our order, she was otherwise a friendly, good waitress. The atmosphere here is stuffy, quiet and very dead, which is great for those who want an old-fashioned, quiet atmosphere with good acoustics for dining. Most folks who dine here are over 65 (plus a few grandchildren who are dragged along!). The worst thing though is the banal quality of the food: very ordinary, and my shrimp were very pink still, and so I was afraid to eat them.
Super bland is the word; overrated. And furthermore, in these bad economic times, they had the nerve to take away the Prix Fixe three- course menu, and dumb it down to only two courses for the same price!! And, they removed their best dessert from their menu, an unusual and fine lemon mousse!! All in all, they are much overrated, just because they are in Southampton Village, and do not offer real French cuisine!! How do they get away with it? For superb, true French food, go to Mirabelle, in Stony Brook, at the Three Villages Inn, as Zagat's rates them highly. Stay away from this place; it fails to make the grade! (If you don't really care a lot about what you eat, then it is okay here though).
