We visited for the first time last Saturday night after receiving a gift card for dinner at L'escale. Although we were told to try and go during the nice weather, because of their terrace seating, we ended up there on a snowy March night. The interior is beautifully decorated - understated, casual elegance. The large fireplace was appreciated on this... More

I went to this restaurant with a group of friends for lunch after visiting the Bruce Museum, right nearby. Lovely location on the water, very attractive interior, great food, and excellent service. Everyone at the table was pleased with their selections.

We visited here for lunch last week - it was my special birthday and there were 7 of us. We ordered a mixture off the menu and a bottle of wine. The food arrived promptly apart from one friend who had to wait a considerable amount of time. The service was really lacking and we had to ask for help... More

Great dinner for Valentine's Day! We had the lamp chops and a shrimp fettuccine & pesto dish that was unreal. Tiramisu drop dead wonderful! Great service. They are not under staffed! Thank you and thank you for the massive rose at the end of our dinner!

Beautiful setting. The staff was nice. We thought the food portions were very small. The salads were even small. Probably will not return for dinner. Just go back for drinks

We were hotel guests at the attached Delamar. Despite a very large and boisterous charity event that took over the hotel and main dining room of L'escale; we were accommodated in the bar area seating and enjoyed an excellent evening of wonderful and creative food that was superbly delivered by warm and welcoming staff.

I travel a lot and am often disappointed by the "hotel restaurant." But L'escale is fantastic. The ambience is lovely. The wait staff is welcoming. And the squid ink linguini is the best pasta / seafood dish I've ever tasted. Bon appetit!

This is our favorite spot for (expensive) dining in town. The food is consistently good, service has always been friendly and the outdoor area is great during the warmer seasons. The space is bright and nice, they have a very cozy bar (where you can get the same food as well), and in summer part of the outdoor area turns... More

If you like french food but dread the formality of a fine dining experience, then the bar at L'escale may be attractive to you as it was to us. I can't say that the dining room is very formal or not but the bar is warm inviting and serves the same food. There are a variety of seating arrangements including... More
