“Don't drive to the "Hammer" for Rousseau House.”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Mediocre food at best. Service was lacking... missed attention to detail. And to top it off they add a 20% tip for larger parties (12 people).

“Disappointed Again”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

My wife and I decided to go out for dinner. Cavallo Nero was booked solid so we decided to try Rousseau House again. Fish tacos, crispy duck salad, chicken pot pie, and fries (they call them frites). Very little taste to the crispy duck and the chicken pie was mainly crust. Portions are too small relative to price. No wonder we could easily get seated and Nero was booked solid.

“Very Dissapointing Nov 2013”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Prices are consistant with a fine dining experience which this was not.
The waiter was quite busy and could not serve all tables so we were served initially by the hostess who was very nice but not experienced as a waitress.
The food was mediocre at best. The meat was very fatty and not much flavour and the fish was the same, lacking in flavour.
Very small servings and no rice or potatoe to help fill the plate
The Wine came after the dinner was done.
Poor service and poor food. It's no wonder there wern't many people there on a Saturday
I would not recommend this place at all.

Reviewed November 13, 2013

No question that the quality of the food is excellent. However the portions are so small it is embarrassing to witness given the huge prices.

“Panabaker Room”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

We had a menu of many choices. Beef, Chicken and Fish were supplied. Those that had the Pickerel or Chicken enjoyed their meal. Beef eaters will find that there is not enough. Choice of soup or arugula salad. Both were enjoyed. There was no choice on the dessert. Some people went without dessert as they didn't like pumpkin cheesecake.There were 2 problems with the servers. 2 of our salads went to the wrong table and those that had soup were finished before the salad choosers received their salad. An excellent review would have been chosen if not for this mix up. Staff were excellent..Friendly, helpful and polite.. An overall enjoyable experience.Highly recommend for special occasions.
