this is a truly elegant place. Our waiter (Nick) was great, he was very attentive and very knowledgeable about the wines. I selected a chardonnay from their reserve wines and it did not disappoint. I had the ahi tuna dish. Excellent!

Great atmosphere, great service and great food! What more can you ask! Local produce used which enhances the experience. Great wine selection. Parking is in the back of the hotel and easy access.

Staying at the Jefferson and dining at Lemaire is a delightful treat. Chef Bundy's range of creativity is as sweeping as the decor. The menu is simple, entrees are fresh, beautifully prepared with visionary precision. The service is legendary. Wonderful spot for a special occasion or a romantic dinner.

My husband and I were traveling and wanted a good meal at a reasonable price. I viewed the ratings for the Lemaire Restaurant plus saw the double dollar signs on price so we went out of our way to get there. We were traveling and dressed in jeans and were told there was a dress code but we could eat... More

Chef Bundy starts with the materials native to the South, but what he creates goes far beyond regional cuisine. The bisque of black-eyed peas was memorable, as was the loin of pork. The restaurant distinguishes itself with a "Discoveries" wine list of really good wines for under $30. The full wine list was very well chosen and very reasonable. Our... More

Very limited menu so if you are picky this is not for you. The food is good and so is the service, prices a little high.

An exceptional dinner! All of the preparations were well executed. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection and served with tiny potatoes and vegetables. The crab cake appetizer was also excellent. The separate small rooms for dining offered a quiet atmosphere. The tables were well spaced, so we never heard the conversations of nearby tables. The dining rooms are elegant,... More

Went there for a birthday in August. Never disappoints. Hadn't been there for dinner since they re-vamped the menu to make it more 'accessible'. Service was again impeccable. Food excellent and beautifully presented.

I live over an hour away from this place--but I'll take my guests here as often as I can. It's delightful--wonderful--worth the money. Trust me--it's the BEST!
