We have been to Le Papillion a number of times in the past, and it has always been exceptional. I have been remiss in not giving it the glowing review it deserves, but believe me, this restaurant is one of the finest that we have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The service is impeccable, and yet never aloof and haughty. Everyone there, from the owner down, really seems to enjoy their work and take pride in the establishment. The atmosphere is somewhat
formal but very comfortable. The tempo of the service is never rushed, but also never drawn out. This allowed us to partake of a heavenly dinner, celebrating a special birthday.
My girlfriend started with the poached lobster and I had the quail with a Madeira reduction, which was an explosion of flavor. While she had a salad, I went for the day boat scallops which were fresh and tender. For the entrees we traded back and forth on the loin of lamb and the red deer, both of which were perfectly cooked. Did I mention that between courses we were presented with little treats from the chef that were artistically displayed and lived up to the expectation of divine taste? On past visits we have had the Grand Marnier soufflé which is exquisite, but this time we decided to split a chocolate coconut terrine, and we were very satisfied.
There is a full bar and an excellent wine list, and although the prices are not inexpensive, they certainly reflect the outstanding quality of the experience. We will certainly be back in the future.
