I started with the triangle of lobster, while my wife had the marinated salmon. For the main course we both had ribbons of dover sole stuffed with lobster. Everything was prepared in an excellent manner. The service was impeccable, and the surroundings were wonderful.

Superb service. Feels like a special occasion just being there. Best lobster I have ever had. So many classy little touches. Amuse bouche. Petit desserts with coffee. Not to be missed. Very old world. Classy, just classy.

Great classic French food in a beautiful setting. Service is perfect. We had crispy duck as our main dish and it did not disappoint. Portions are generous. Good bar.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and setting decorated to look colonial with a log fire in the corner. The menu for both food and wine was good with plenty of options all very tempting. The waiter was full of character too.

As stated in other answers, this isn't a question for guests. You should look at their menu online or call. They are VERY helpful. Happy birthday!

I appreciated your review of the Thomas Henkelmann restaurant. If you look at my review, you will see that I noticed a similar act of shockingly rude waiters. They insulted a young man in front of his mother by telling him loudly that his tip was under 20% and therefore inappropriate. They made a big show of bringing him back his credit card to correct the underpayment. They are very class oriented and want the people they see as lower class to know their place. I also saw someone ask for a different table and they said that table was taken, even though no one came to the desired table until closing. They just did not want to let the guy have his desired table But, in fairness, this is the very thing that people like about that restaurant. They treat the high tipping regulars with respect and prove it by disrespecting the lesser people. In my opinion, that is a custom that Europe can keep. We do not need to imitate it in this country. The closest thing we have to that is those silly restaurants that cow tow to celebrities and treat the tourists badly. There actually are tourists who thrive on that bad treatment and come back to the restaurant better dressed and tipping higher so that they can get the feeling of finally being included in the upper crust.
