    Authentic French food in a very charming setting. Good wine list to choose French wines from. Parking can be a challenge especially for out of towners. The lobster bisque is the best that I have ever tasted. This is the only place I know where quenelles are available and you can have them either as an hors d’oeuvres or an entree - highly recommend them.

    this was our first time back to our beloved la chaumiere since its management/ownership change - - and we were not disappointed. in fact, it may be even better than it was before. every dish was superb: caesar salad; celery root soup; pike quenelles; and, the chef's shrimp special; and chocolate mousse. the wine paired well. parking is easy, just across the street at the four seasons hotel and subsidized by a sticker from the restaurant. it was a very special night and we will be back.

    I always know La Chaumiere will deliver perfectly prepared, authentic French dishes with friendly, professional service. Lunch this week was no exception. Four friends ordered classic house salads and fabulous cheese souffles, followed by cappochino, espresso and a shared fruit gratinee of berries. It was a delightful meal.

    As it always is, our service was exceptional from the maitre d’ greeting us to the professional wait staff. One can just tell the difference having a seasoned career waiter. Food is always good here too.
