I'm rarely impressed with a restaurant but L'Ecole is the exception. I have gone two times for the 5-course dinner and have been unbeliveably impressed both times. Each dish was prepared perfectly and the servers even brought out little "tasters" between dishes. This place is definitely on my "favorite" list

We went to l’Ecole on a Monday evening and got the five-courses menu for 42$, and we added a bottle of wine. The products were of good quality, fresh and well cooked. Nevertheless, the cuisine was “old-school”, not really “delicate” and not surprising. The decor of the restaurant was nice, the presentation of the table was really pleasant and the room very quiet, even if a large table was sited closed to us. However, the service was very bad. The waiters (3-4) were not enthusiastic or smiling, took our plates before we really finished, didn’t present the plates and brought them rudely, by almost throwing them in front of us. To conclude, we were disappointed, even if the cuisine is simple and of a good value, we didn’t feel in a cosy atmosphere and upscale restaurant where people takes care of their guest, as we can expect from l’Ecole.

A week later and I still can't stop thinking about my lunch at L'Ecole. This is probably the most delicious meal I've ever had! From the corn soup to the fois gras to the perfectly-cooked sirloin to the yummy desserts.The service was great, too. Really attentive. And what a great deal for a 3-course prix fixe -- only $20 per person! BTW, the house wines were so good that I called the next day to ask what they were. I definitely recommend this place!
