Walked in on a Saturday night and it was very busy. Waited for about 15 minutes or so and then got a table in the bar area. Service was good considering how crowded they were and food was excellent. Had the cheese plate special, amazing! Duck confit salad was so delicious and very generously sized. Lamb wrapped in prosciutto was cooked perfectly and very tender. Steak frites is a winner too. Overall a great meal and cozy atmosphere, can't wait to come back.

Hit the spot. Cocktails, wine by the glass, frisée au lardons, duck, brick chicken...everything was perfect.

Recently we met a friend at Café Routier. She is a regular and said we wouldn't be disappointed...she was right! Fabulous ambiance, wonderful food and service. 4 menus to chose from, something to please everyone. We are already talking about when we are going back - need to try more items from the menu. They have a seasonal menu that changes as the season changes. Great drinks, just a wonderful night out. Highly recommend.

You will be disappointed unless you are as superficial as most of the diners here. There is fine dining and pretend fine dining, and this is an example of the latter. Actually went back a second time, thinking that perhaps I missed something, given all the rave reviews. No, same bad experience. The meal just did not appeal.

The Lounge at Cafe Routier is a terrific place for a drink and a light meal. The Bar menu has some exotic offerings and although small portions they are excellently prepared. One of my favorite spots on theShoreline.
