Chez Francois cannot be rivaled in Northeast Ohio in general setting and ambiance. We've dined both in the beautifully decorated dining room and outdoors along the riverfront. The patio is just lovely on a gorgeous summer day. Chez Francois has a world class wine list including selections we have not seen outside Napa. During our recent experience, we enjoyed the best wine we've ever tasted (a 2000 Shafer Hillside Select, which we believed could not be found even outside the winery). Some of the selections on the menu are phenomenal while others are just okay. What always stands out for us is the fresh and remarkable quality of produce used in preparing each dish. Our favorite, standout entry on the menu, which I highly recommend, includes the Artichaut à l’Alouette (artichoke hearts). However, most of our favorites have been selected from the daily special menu. Chez Francois is worth a visit for an exceptional dining experience.
