“Classic French cuisine, attentive service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We had previously eaten at the sister restaurant next door, Les Viviers, so decided to take some local friends to the more "upscale" Rolancy's. What a delight! Same chef, but brighter, more spacious seating and prompter service. The food was superb and service over-the-top personal. Extensive wine list that is reasonably priced compared to US prices. Four different dishes and each was excellent. With a good wine, figure on about $120/person - pricey but worth it for special occasions. Since it is small, be sure to reserve well ahead for Fridays or Saturdays, but during the week, it is easy to get a table last-minute. A bit out of the way, but less than a 10 minute walk from Jean Medicin stop on the trolley.

“Not quite a Michelin one-star”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Rolancy's seems to be trying very hard to get a Michelin star. We did not anticipate it, but the restaurant provided both amuse bouches and mignardises. In California, both of those deem to be de rigure for Michelin starred restaurants.

Three very different amuse bouches came on a plate. The most unusual was what appears to be a large stuffed olive. It is stuffed with chicken and glazed with a sugar crust like that on a creme caramel. There was also a small portion of smoked salmon with red bits that may have been dried pomegranite seeds. The third amuse bouche was a shot glass of mushroom soup with a straw, All of the amuse bouches need some further tweaking to be one-star worthy.

The mignardises were nice. I especially liked the homemade marshmallows.

We ordered foie gras as a starter. The foie gras is good, but not as good as that offered by Les Pecheurs.

My husband ordered the large Bouillabaisse. In hindsight he wished that he had ordered the smaller portion. The bowl contained a lot of very fancy shellfish. Part way through the meal, the waiter offered my husband additional boullabaise sauce.
