Service, views, tartare, shrimp cocktail, lobster fra diavlo, bread and butter = ridiculously dessert, creme brûlée, perfiteroles, everything was exceptional. Thank you to everyone for perfect visit as always.
A lovely dinner with excellent food. The service was fantastic and it was quiet, so we were able to chat and enjoy each other's company.
The staff and ambiance were exactly what we needed. Michael the bartender was THE BEST! Wish we could've stayed longer. Definitely will be back.
Valentine’s Day celebration.
We didnt have a waiter the entire night-the host brought us drinks and bus boys brought us the food. The food was so awful, and made both me and my husband sick.
We enjoyed our evening at the restaurant. The quality of the food did not live up to what we were charged. I believe the food was very overpriced for what we were provided.
We were very disappointed in food and ambience. Service was fair
Good food, good service, excellent ambiance!
Fantastico wonderful amazing experience for me and my wife
Outstanding service as always, our waitress was accommodating and extremely attentive. Food and drinks were on point, prosciutto and burrata was the best we've had in a long time.
The ambiance was lovely, great setup of the restaurant so when full you can still have a conversation with your guest(s). There was an excellent one man band in the lounge singing popular covers, great place to have a night cap after your meal.
Looking forward to our next experience at L'Escale.
Limited menu (of course) but they really try. Kudos for creating a very comfortable environment under challenging circumstances
The bar has live music which was amazing in covid environment
Excellent service and very COVID friendly. Food was great as always.
My new favorite restaurant. Porterhouse steak for 2 was a killer! Sundae dessert = amazing.
I have never been disappointed at L’Escale. Felt perfectly safe despite not being vaccinated yet. Entire staff and the restaurant is practicing very good COVID prevention protocol. Food was as good as ever.
I have nothing but great things to say about the restaurant. The view is spectacular, and the complimentary valet is a nice perk.
Anniversary. Great Experience!
L’Escale Restaurant is a jewel! The exquisite food, presentation, service and atmosphere are absolutely amazing! ( Greenwich Harbor) Definitely Go & Enjoy!!
Always perfect and divine! Thank you, as always for a special lunch!
L'Escale is following good social distancing during COVID. The out side is set up with a covering and it is very pleasant to sit there. Great job at food and ambiance.
Love everything about L’Escale!!
In town for the weekend & hoping for a lovely date night, we headed to L’Escale. We were most disappointed from start to finish. After being sat, we waited 10 min to have our drink orders taken. Then another 20 for the drinks to arrive, just as I was getting ready to give up and walk out. Then our dinner order was taken. Our appetizer was decent, Prosciutto & Burratina, but it was served without any bread or cracker, which made it awkward to eat. Our mains arrived shortly after. My husband enjoyed his Prime New York Steak, which was cooked nicely at medium rare. However, he was disappointed with the 3 small potato slices that accompanied the steak. My Prime Hanger Steak Frites had the potential to be delicious, ordered medium, but it came completely over cooked, well done and zero pink throughout. The fries were delicious. We could not address any of the issues with our server, since he did not come to check on us once throughout the entire meal. We only saw him when he took our order and when he dropped off our check. We did manage to order the creme brulee for dessert at that time, which was nice and also accompanied by a complimentary square of a cookie/cake bar of some sort. For how highly regarded this restaurant is by many, it was a surprise that it fell so short in so many different areas.
The Lobster Fra Diavolo is amazing. Overall great experience. Good food and service.
The kitchen never fails to deliver interesting, great quality food.
Michael K ,in the lounge, is warm and gracious.
Always pleased with my experience there.
We were celebrating our friend’s big birthday and L’Escale is so very special for any occasion, or just because!

L’Escale was amazing! Celebrating my boyfriend birthday at L’Escale was a excellent choice and he loved it! The food was great and the ambiance was fantastic. I would recommend L’Escale to my friends and family.
The food was excellent as always. The server Meryem was excellent. The teamwork was really superb. Even when she was busy even the maî·tre d' and other people filled in to make sure that orders were taken and completed very quickly.
Always a favorite of ours. Food, ambiance and staff are all wonderful.
