The French Room has been highly touted for years and lives up to the accolades it has received. The setting is VERY French and quite elegant. The food is memorable and the service exceptional. Quite pricey but oh so worth the experience.

I think the atmosphere was the best part of the restaurant! The ceiling in the restaurant was like the Sistine Chapel and the beautiful fresco contributed to the impeccable ambiance in the French Room in the Historic Adolphus Hotel. The hotel was named after Adolphus...More
