Le Grainne Cafe
Posted by rebsicle on 04/27/2012
I guess I had not been around for a while 'cause I sure was shocked that Les Deux Gamins was gone and now this wonderful French cafe had an IRISH name! It was a crazy, busy, late Saturday afternoon and service was very slow though people were charming. At LDG, everyone was French. Here, I'm not so sure. Still very New Yorky, great energy, young! Though we oldsters are welcome too!

I went to this restaurant for the third time last week. The other times I ordered a salad and quiche and found them satisfactory. The crepe, however, tasted dry and lifeless. The restaurant is nicely located and the waitress was very nice--I will probably return but order something different.

Best Salmon Crepe I ever had, lifetime!

Good tasty crepes, server was friendly! There were some mix ups with the order but she was very polite and helpful.. I would definitely go back!

Le Grainne Cafe is magnifique! I have had incredible service every time I go there and they serve me way more than I would have ever imagined for the price of their meals. The portions are just right. The atmosphere is cozy and quaint. The food is of good quality. And their delivery service is speedy. When they say ten minutes, they mean ten minutes! I love Le Grainne.

This used to be great spot when it was Le Gamin, but it's recently declined. I've had two disappointing lunches here in one month. Food is not the same even though the menu hasn't changed.The spinach quiche was completely different and not good! It had a strange tomato paste under a layer of thin potatoes on top. That's not quiche! The chicken ratatouille crepe was dry. Crepe didn't taste fresh. And the magic was missing from the once delicious salad. Dressing was close, but not the same. Same with ice tea, close but missing something! Orange caramel crepe desert was still good. Service is slow. Didn't recognize the wait staff, so something has changed besides the quality. What happened?!!

We strolled in after a show at the Joyce Theatre nearby and decided to share an Escargot appetiser and Dinde Aux Legumes... and weren't that impressed. One can easily get this standard of food in Montreal or France, anywhere. The restaurant gives a good vibe, however, and service is largely a hit or miss. A decent place for a date or a group of friends :) We'll probably revisit to try different offerings on the menu.
