“Terrific food and experience”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

My wife and I took in dinner here a few weeks ago. We both ordered an appitizer and main course. The food was hot, extremely well prepared, well portioned and tasted absolutely fantastic. We both really enjoyed our meal.
The service was very friendly, and the atmosphere was light and happy. The resturaunt is somewhat small, but I would call it 'cozy'. The decor looked like alot of work and thought was put into it.
The best way to describe the menu would be 'upscale home cooking'. It certainly looked as though the diners around us were enjoying their food and having a good time as well.
I would strongly recommend a visit if you're considering somewhere different to eat, or a trip to Wakefield. I would also recommend the village poutine (with lamb) for something a little different. Overall, a great experience.

“Inventive and tasty at Las Maison”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We visited Las Maison du Village on a weekend trip away to Wakefield. We were lucky enough to get a table on the outside patio on a warm July night. The place is small and homey so be warned as more people find out about this gem.

We shared "the village poutine" as an appetizer. This version featured shaved potato with shredded slow cooked lamb over cheese curds and lamb gravy. The lamb was very tender and I noted many portions going to almost every table. For the main course, my girl had the braised beef rib served over a leek ravioli and fresh roasted vegetables. I had the pan seared artic chair served over egg noodles in a mushroom broth with fresh vegetables. The beef was delicously tender, the artic char seared perfectly crispy we thought both dishes were inventive and delicious. If we're in the area again we would definitely make a point of having dinner there again.
