Recently returned to L'etoile where have enjoyed very excellent meal but this was a major disappointment. We were greeted pleasantly and seated graciously by the hostess. Subsequently the waiter presented himself to take drink orders which also was without incident. Menus were distributed and some...More

We had one of the best dinners ever at l’etoile last night. Starters were Katama oysters two ways, lemon cello sauce and mignonette. The two dishes that put this over the top for me were the foie gras and the Etuvee of lobster. Wow were...More

Pricey but well worth it. This is a great place to eat if you crave quiet and a large menu choice. Specializing in gourmet type foods and the reflection is in the the price. But a great vacation choice not to be missed.

Service, ambiance, food and drinks. Top notch. Kudos to chef and staff. Don’t debate where, just dine there.

The tasting menu had beautiful and nice amounts of 6 items, all fabulously cooked. Exceptional value at $99. In NYC, it might easily have been 2x or 3x that. Great atmosphere and service. Exceptional meal

Just stopped in for a pre-dinner drink. The bar area is cute, but very loud. The drinks were ok but nothing special and a bit more expensive than others. Not much to recommend here, although the service was attentive.

We came here for dinner with friends and found it to be great! I started with the asparagus and sweet pea soup and my husband had the duck foie gras. The soup was very good but could have more seasoning to enhance the flavors; the...More

Although I don't know for sure I can't help but believe they would offer menu items for the ever growing gluten concerns. This restaurant seems to be quaint and romantic yet fresh and in tune with the latest menu options... More
