Really nice atmosphere and bar. Food was ok, not great. The server, at the bar, could have been friendlier, but warmed up as I ordered and chatted with her. Sometimes, when you're a single woman traveling alone, you can be a little discounted.

I asked my husband to take me to Lemaire's for my special birthday dinner thinking it would be super wonderful. Unfortunately it was mediocre to disappointing. Darn it. I won't be returning. The food just wasn't special.

We were in business casual attire. Some were in suits, but we felt very comfortable in dress pants and dress shirt, but no jacket or tie. Hope that helps!
