If you want to impress for a first date this is the place, drinks great, food very good but this is not a jeans and tee shirt type of place. Highly recommend reservations and expect to pay, wait staff very formal and respectful to the tables conversations and didn't interrupt unless necessary, other wait staff in other places should practice...

We were on holiday and looking for somewhere to eat, we passed cafe Escadrille and it looked nice, despite being a Sunday and being busy they still found us a table. We only had main courses both were very good and plentiful, our waitress was friendly.

We enjoyed our Mother's Day meal with family. They did a good job in service and food was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meal and desert. Will return.

I was taking a large group of colleagues to dinner and opted for the Cafe Escadrille as it had been a few years since I visited. It is a large restaurant and easily accommodates large groups. Free self-parking. Once inside the atmosphere is pleasant, staff are very nice and the restaurant is very comfortable. Wide range of appetizers, salads and... More

Have never had a bad meal at the Escadrille. The staff is always pleasant and willing to recommend dishes and the specials always add a little something extra to the menu. The environment is always nice, good place to meet friends, family - catch up and enjoy a nice meal!

A friend of us had recommended this restaurant and I'm glad she did. The food was good and the staff friendly. My husband enjoyed very much the Duck Al'Orange. We spent $80/couple.

We have been visiting Cafe Escadrille for the past 10 years and enjoyed many evenings there. On a recent visit, though, we felt it was lacking and dated. The menu still features a decent variety of seafood, steak and other options. Salads come with the meal, which isn't common these days, but the quality was more similar to what you... More

Love the regular restaurant. Wait staff very attentive. No complaints with any part of the meal. Went during the Christmas Holiday, find it very festive.

Excellent dining that is worth the price. My wife and I each had prime; I ordered mine Blackened. The quality of the cut and the flavor was exceptional. The sides were reasonably portioned and tasty. We also had the Onion Soup; it could have used a little more beef bouillon in the broth but we still enjoyed it. Our server... More
