A group of friends went to this restaurant for lunch to celebrate the Valentine day and we had Escargot as appetizer, and Boston Scrod as entry, my husband had their special pot roast. The escargot is as good as always, so is the Boston Scrod. However, when we got Escargot, which didn't come with a small forks for digging out... More

My wife and I went there Valentine's Day for a nice romantic dinner. Our waitress, Patti, was terrific, attentive but not hovering. We sat at a 2 top in the bar area. Got the Snow Dragon sushi app, it's really tasty and fresh. It's not a raw sushi dish, and the shrimp was still slightly warm, really well done. We... More

Had my wedding shower here and just so happens that the week before we had a wedding reception to attend here so it gave us a good representation of what to expect.

Took my wife there for Valentines day. Had a couple of cocktails at the bar, service was friendly and attentive. Got seated at our table in a timely manner, staff was very friendly. Waitstaff was overwhelmed, however, he was attentive and apologetic. We had Veal Catherine and Seafood Alfredo, meals were very bland, seafood and veal was tasteless. For $33... More

I went there for my birthday last Saturday night. What a disappointment. I felt like we were always waiting for our waitress. When we ordered a drink, another menu because they were out of Prime Rib, dressing for my salad (it didn't come with it as it should have) it took the waitress 20 minutes to come back to the...

The ambiance of the restaurant is not exceptionally comfortable. They could do with a makeover I had the broiled scallops which were very flavorful and I couldn't eat all of them. My husband had the combination filet mignon and stuffed shrimp. The filet mignon was wonderful and the stuffed shrimp was excellent. The green beans were obviously frozen and cooked... More

We occasionally dine at the Café Escadrille, the food and service have always been excellent although a bit pricy. The atmosphere is somewhat casual however this is a great restaurant for business meetings. The menu has a wide choice and the dinners for two are excellent. For a more quiet atmosphere try the gourmet section - a private dining room... More

Bar overpowers the restaurant with noise. Service was slow as our poor waitress was also trying to accommodate a very large party. Sushi appetizers were fine but meals were not good. The duck l'orange was so sweet it was almost inedible. Rice pilaf was so sweet it WAS inedible. Presentation on plate was awful-side dish (not even sure what it... More

Returned to the Escadrille with a group of nine and we all could not have been more pleased. Our waiters, Carlos and Richard were efficient and fun and had no problem with separate checks. The place was decorated beautifully for the Holiday Season - perfect for picture taking. Everything we ordered we enjoyed and was yummy from the veal to... More
