Loved the food. Our waiter, Bruno, was fantastic!!! It got too cold and rained so they sat us indoors. I can't wait to experience the true indoor and outdoor ambience of the restaurant one day

We loved our dinner at Rochambeau! Our waiter, Bruno, was the so kind, and made us feel welcome—like we were old friends! The food was phenomenal, and the cocktails unique and delicious! We can’t say enough good things about our experience here!! Will definitely be back, and if you are thinking of eating here, you certainly won’t be disappointed!!

The atmosphere is nice but food is mediocre. The menu is pretty average as the entrees aren't creative nor chef specialty, the sea bass I had was a bit salty also. This is very Americanized and not true to French authentic. If you are looking for some authentic and chef special French entree, look elsewhere.

Food was fantastic. We were seated at ‘a really nice table’ which was a booth next to bathroom and kitchen. We wanted to sit upstairs. Server was very nice but didn’t know what a tangible was, spilled my drink twice before serving and didn’t offer to replace it. Water bottle was filthy with food stuck on it and greasy prints. Dishes weren’t cleared before next course and we were asked to hold our forks as prior course was removed.

I have never been disappointed, not once, by the quality of the food and thus I have become a regular. I go at every opportunity. This time around the charred octopus was superb, the tuna tartare fantastic.

Great food and delightful outdoor patio, far enough away from street traffic to seem quiet and during these pandemic times, just far enough away from pedestrians to feel safe and yet within the vibrancy.

Amazing dinner. We came later as we'd just gotten into town. Out of the wine we ordered, another was suggested it was delicious.

Food was perfect, as well as pace of dinner. Didn't feel like course's were rammed down our throat. Would definitely return.

Went for Easter brunch. Excellent! From the bottle of bubbles, crab benny, to the desserts, everything was delicious. My daughter had mussels and claimed they were the best (and she has had them in France!). Restaurant was clean and we felt very safe. Will be back!

My friends and I dined at Rochambeau to celebrate a birthday and it was such an incredible experience! We ordered a few small plates for the table to share which were delicious and the drinks were unparalleled (make sure you try the serenity)!

The waiter and bartender could not have been any nicer or more personable! We will definitely be back soon ☺️
