A $95 tasting menu is stiffly-priced even by the standards of a major city, so I expected a lot from my meal here, and didn't quite get it. My first two courses were interesting and well-done (a pea with pork belly soup and a mushroom-langoustine risotto). The main course, which was billed as seared goose confit, was not good -... More

The Peabody Hotel is world famous. This restaurant is a little on the pricey side, but well worth every cent. Very unique dishes prepared by a chef...NOT A COOK.....a wide variety to choose from. I had escargot here for my first time many years ago. I go about 2 times a year. EVERYTHING IS EXCELLENT.

...well, my queen-my mom. What a delightful experience! We went the week after Christmas, so the Peabody Christmas decorations were still up, making even more special. Our server was very good, non-intrusive, kept our tea pot filled, and kept things at a nice, slow pace. The ginger-peach tea was very good. The sandwiches were very tiny, a little smaller than...

This restaurant is like something out of a Parisian movie -- grand, elegant setting with high ceilings, mural walls, crystal sconces, etc. A small restaurant, so booking ahead is a must. Ambience aside, the food and service are excellent. It is at minimum a four-course dinner, highly priced at $95 per person but very much worth the indulgence. First, I... More

Chez Phillippe was big on Atmosphere....but the food and service was not up to snuff for a hotel that is in such a swanky hotel. It was actually very disappointing-from quality fo the food to the level of service provided before and during our meal.

For the discerning diner and for special dinner occasions - great service, great wines, great food. Not for those who will baulk at prices.

Had a romantic dinner with my husband. We had a choice between a 4-course or 7-course (without description!). We chose the 4-course dinner and it was delicious and filling. The service was excellent!
