“Generous table d'hôte”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

A visit during the winter and a recent supper confirmed that while this restaurant fits a niche in Sutton, if a few things were tweaked it would be even better. The table d'hôtel offers an entrée, soup or salad and main course. Everything is fine, but more attention could be devoted to the vegetables which seem to stay a bit too long in the steamer, and given the number of great bakeries in Sutton the bread is a bit of a letdown. I would go back at lunch, or for a casual supper.

“nice location, great lunch specials, nice service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We had a great lunch for $10 which included a big salad, a main dish and coffee. Two of us had pork meatballs in a peach sauce with carrots and green beans., and our other friend had grilled chicken pieces on a bed of couscous with veggies. We shared a delicious strawberry shortcake.
The atmosphere was very nice on an covered outdoor deck. Everyone enjoyed their lunch, at a great price.

“An Excellent Birthday Meal Across The Border”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

My wife and I traveled across the border from Vermont for a nice birthday meal, and we were not disappointed. While it was a relatively quiet Thursday night, the waiter and chef both put maximum effort into making sure the service and food were exceptional. My wife had the beff stroganoff, which was inventive and not at all what would ordinarily been presented. She was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it immensely. I had a duck pate in port wine sauce appetizer and the bison for my entre. The bison was a little tougher than I might have hoped, but this was more than compensated for by the sauce, which was exceptional. We shared a chocolate cheesecake desert which was heavenly. We cannot say enough about the service. We are slowly trying to learn French, but it was unnecessary as our waiter not only spoke flawless English, but did so with great charm and wit. There is no question we will be back, and this time we won't wait for a special occasion.

“Wonderful meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

This very old building has lots of character, loads of plants and souvenirs from many years. The menu is grand and the prices are reasonable. We were 3 and 2 had the prix-fixe the third just had the steak aux poivres.He is not a very adventurous eater. My daughter had the escargots gratinée followed by the duck a l'orange. I had the salmon gravlax followed by the trout. Everything was delicious.Included in the prix fixe was a salad or soup course and coffee or tea. Our waiter was very nice and professional.
I have often dined here at lunch time and had great meals for under $10 including soup and main course.
