Fine cuisine at it's finest. Never had a meal quite like it. Went for my birthday, and because it's closing in August and despite the high price I needed to try it. Each course was delicately prepared and the flavors of the various ingredients came together like music. Service was attentive after a short wait for our reservation (we were treated to champagne while we waited.) Decor was nice though slightly dated. Highly recommended.

one of the best restuarants on this side of the atlantic. food was superb. service was very personal and top shelf. this reminds me of my experience at auberge d'ill.

table d'hote service in classey townhouse. charlie regularly delivers pseudo french/american cuisine with a degree of finesse.

i don't get it. there are far more accommodating restaurants with better food and a more pleasant ambiance. charlie trotter has a good publicist. i won't be back given the expense for what i get.

i was disappointed with my last experience with trotters. the food looked amazing. unfortunately, the flavors did not match the appearance. when i asked the server for a vegetarian tasting i was told that was not an option that night. her i am a vegetarian spending $200 to eat meat. not a good time. the server never left the table. just hovering like a new grandmother. table was never allowed to openly talk because of this.every course the wait staff set fish knives and forks. we only had 2 courses with fish. come on, i would expect for this money to get the right silverware.

still the doyen of haute cuisine, but a notch lower now that charlie has given up on foie gras.

the gold standard for food and service.the only drawback is the price and the prix fixe menus only

excellent innovative food and foam but too expensive for too small portions-they can afford to feed you at these prices so you don't need a midnite burger chaser-go once for the experience then elsewhere when you are hungry
