  • No, I would not go back!

What a disappointment : Oct 1 815 PM I had previously been here for a drink and loved what I saw and could not wait till I went Back and tried the Rotisserie Chicken. WE Ordered drinks and They Pour a glass of wine like their being watched by the Boss. Mind you they Are not shy about the price but the Pour was UNACCEPTABLE. We we excited to Try the Rotisserie chicken which for two People is Priced at $ 50 Dollars. Honestly the dish was served and the chicken was missing the thighs. it was two fairly small Breasts and two Small Drumsticks. The Thighs were no where to be found . It was Far from tasty and we left and were Starved. PS The side dishes are Tiny and really serve One if your not Hungry Absolutely Never Going Back . They spent a lot Of MOney On this Place. No Doubt it will Change Venues at some point unless they Pay More attention to what the customer wants. Costco sells a Rotisserie chicken for $ 4.99 and makes money. This chicken was Half that size.

Still needs some work

  • Yes, I would go back!

Was rather unimpressed with a meal on Monday night. BF had an under-seasoned steak tartare, not redeemed by the addition of bone marrow. The Oysters Sargent were at least somewhat interesting, but nothing I would rush back to have. My Duck au Poivre was beautifully cooked, and I enjoyed the non-traditional accompaniments, but the duck itself was too salty. His Black Fettuccine was the best of what we had, and perhaps pastas are the way to go for the main course. The timing of the meal was also off. After the rapid arrival of first course, the mains took way too long (a neighboring table was cleared of entrees, dessert ordered and delivered, followed by coffee and receipt of check between our first and main). The space, however, is nice, and the crowd lively with a pleasant buzz. In all, I'd probably be willing to give it another try in a few months, but would try some of the other new brasseries before heading back to Lafayette .

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
