This is a wonderful dining experience, however be prepared, if two of you, for your pocket to be 500 euros lighter by the end of the meal. The chef's special of crab and mangoes cannaloni as a starter was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. For mains I had the golden brown scallops with beetroot rings mushrooms...

The place is elegant with lovely service and good food. The waiters made one feel very special...old world service, where waiters knew how to serve without over doing it. It is worth eating in in this Michelin rated restaurant.

The atmosphere and level of service at Le Chantecler is what you would expect of a 2-star restaurant but I was disappointed in the food. My wife and I both had the chef's discovery menu and, while the food was presented beautifully & was good, there was not a single course that just 'wowed' us. We have dined at quite... More

Staying for a weekend at the Negresco we treated ourselves to dinner in the Chantecler. A warm welcome, wonderfully attentive service and a dinner without fault. It was certainly one of those 'very special' evenings and one we shall never forget. Not inexpensive......but it was like a night at the Opera. A gala night out!

Did the Chef Surprise tasting menu for our anniversary dinner. It was delicious and the dishes were beautiful to look at but the time between the courses was way too long. 20 minutes in some cases. It just got boring after a while. Over four hours is too long. I would have given it 5 stars if not for that... More

Pate de foie gras far too fatty, too many fatty and greasy dishes and desserts. Service (except wine steward) rather slow and inattentive. Birthday cake for me was served to my guest... And all that for €660 (almost a thousand bucks)??? They should learn from the Edvard at the Palais Hansen in Vienna, best food I had in 5 years..... More

We really enjoyed our meal--had the larger of the Prix Fixe dinners. One diner had a shellfish allergy and they were very accommodating. Wine pairings went well and the rose champagne to start worth the 40 euro price. Services was very good except we think they forgot about us at the end of the meal. we ordered an additional cheese...

This is hotel restaurant and it very well designed and great service. Food was just plain and not interesting at all. The restaurant was half empty but we had to wait for each dish for a long time. It seemed that all "testing menu" guests were serviced first. We were forced to get a glass of Champagne even after we... More

This is simply not just a meal but an entire experience. We had a lovely evening and was made extremely welcomed by Romain the general Manager. The food was beautifully presented and ceremoniously delivered to the table. A pricey evening, but what an experience! Just loved it. Smart dress is essential, sit back and enjoy!
