I have been a frequent visitor to La Grenouille for some time now and it is by very far the best restaurant I have ever eaten at, well, in the world. And I have made a point of visiting the "best" restaurants wherever I go (and I travel with frequency). Dining at this restaurant is an experince that one can hardly forget. At the very instant you walk through the door you are transported by the place's beauty--and more significantly by the exquisite flower arrangements (made by the owner I heard) that inundate the place with vivid color and pleasant scents......and there after one is hit by one superb dish after the other......simply put the food is spectacular......and the service is just perfect...i truly recommend this restaurant to those few who still appreciate impeccability.

The place was packed with people, and the atmosphere festive. I started with a delicious asparagus soup followed by Pink Snapper tenderly garnished with lima beans and fennel. It has been a while since I had fish like that! Flavorful and perfectly cooked. I wanted to keep things light and chose a heavenly lavender infused ice cream for dessest. The meal was completely divine. The other night I went late, for a glass of champagne at the bar , and discovered an amazing sweet tomate tart .The owner Charles told me about his new pastry chef, Tai Choppins. Very inspiring. The flowers are at their most effusive right now. Definitely a time to visit La Grenouille; things are pretty perfect.

This restaurant is consistently good. We have eaten there many many times. Recently we had dinner at the bar. That was a real treat. Crowd is getting older and older, but the restaurant is still gorgeous and the help is always gracious.

Lovely dining room- tables too close, but service competent considering. Dinner was nothing special - luke warm quenelles, lobster raviolis swimming in butter, lamb chops over cooked. Overall i feel a little had - will much prefer to head a little west and dine at le bernardin or cafe gray.

Four of us had lunch in mid-Nov, 2006 and we all found it only so-so. The food was just mediocre, and some things (a very dry chocolate souffle) were almost bad. It's a pretty restaurant, but the tables are too close together (one of us had to keep pushing her chair in and out to let the waiter pass by). Service was very good. Only the prices haven't gone downhill. For this kind of money it should be much much better.

...are the prix fixe lunch portions a wee on the small side for what one pays, my wife wondered? On the other hand, i wanted a Grand Marnier souffle for dessert, it wasn't on the menu, but they made me one anyway.
