My oldest friend took me there for my birthday. The setting is quiet and you're made to feel welcomed and very comfortable. We had the tasting menu meaning we didn't specifically order dishes. From the first bite we wanted to ask if we could have that served for the whole meal. Then, as another dish came, again, we wanted to have MORE, and so on. Every bite...EVERY bite is unbelievably delicious. What a wonderful experience. We are so fortunate to have such a place to go to.

I wanted to dislike this place. I wanted to call it overrated. I couldn't do it though. The food and the service at French Laundry stand alone as separate and unforgettable memories in my mind. I won't go into details on the food as the menu changes quickly, but it is essential that you end the night with coffee and donuts - they will blow your mind. Reservations weeks in advance of your trip are highly recommended, but a family member reported getting a table for two as a walk-in due to a last minute cancellation. It never hurts to try.

Snobby restaurant, with a carefully choreographed service. The food is good, but no where near exceptional, to warrant the almost $300 menu per person. I can name at least three Los Angeles restaurants which are a lot better than this place. In my opinion is not worth a visit unless you are in the area.

I live in Vegas and eat the most Amazing Food everyday....this place lacks ambiance for sure...but if you are a Foodie and know your Eats and what to order, then your amazed. But if it is false decor that has you sparkle, you will miss all the glory.

Where it all started. One man's dedication and the world has been his stage ever since. "The fish should be kept upright in swimming position to maintain best texture..." Wow. Been an avid fan and cannot be more pleased with our dinner at his beautiful establishment. Truly remarkable standards delighting our palate. Thank you, Chef Thomas Keller

You would expect this place to be amazing, and it was, I just wasn't completely blown away by the food. The service was impeccable but the decor in the upstairs dining room was a little bland. The food was interesting and tasty and well presented, but I can't remember being wowed with each bite (except the Oyster and Caviar, which was mind blowing). I was also disappointment by the wine menu which was marked up 5x or 6x, which made selecting a wine almost impossible. We ended up having wine by the glass. If you are willing to pay for the experience of eating at one of North America's best restaurants, then this is a worth while trip, otherwise it is a bit over priced and there are arguably better options out there.

This is the most overrated food I have ever had. Oh, every thing around you is beautiful, yet the food is mediocre and the presentation is ridiculous with 3 plates stacked high for each small serving. One dish out of 8 was good. I have eaten in many of the best restaurants in the USA, this one is not at all in that class. It could of course have been an off night, but 7 mediocre dishes out of 8?
