"The men who run this place are French & are friendly and welcoming. Mgr actually helped with a DC-area stalwart, Auberge Françoise. Modern French executed superbly. Starters - both had the Scallops and Caviar (Cauliflower Blinis, Cauliflower Remoulade), greated white cauliflower with white remoulade with fresh scallops was a lovely white canvas for a dallop of caviar. The blinis were soft and creamy, and I couldve eaten 100. Main course I had the sous vide rack of lamb (Bok Choi, Mashed Potato Scented with Fresh Mint, Lamb Jus Reduction). Lamb was a huge portion and flavorful, and it was tender but not amazingly so. Wife had tender perfectly done lobster on a creamy risotto. A great meal and great atmosphere, escape from the energy of SoBe."

"Fresh seafood on this menu. And it was cooked perfectly. I had scallops covered in light creamed spinach, pernot, and bernaise. lemony and fresh. Shellfish was perfecltly cooked and asparagus added crunch, spinach added texture. She had a salmon filet seasoned liberally, and it complimented the mixed green salad blend to a tee. Service was friendly, and the place was empty (late lunch). Would recommend"

"Weather was great so we sat on the patio. It can be a bit tight there, but everyone is out for a good time. Bar is small. Would certainly not want to be seated in the courtyard, as it is essentially outside of rooms. Their speciality is ceviche, and there are lots of choices. We shared the hamachi, which was very fresh and flavorful. Also shared the tender kobe meatballs, a killer non-bacon covered brussel sprouts (shredded with cashews), a squid ink empanada with succulent lobster, and mini tartare tacos in yucca shells. Everything was flavorful and fresh. Drinks were just strong enough. Server was friendly and we were not rushed at all. Would hit there again."

With an original outpost in Mexico City, La Gloutonnerie brings elegant French fare with a sophisticated bistro appeal to the area. The menu is classic French with modern twists and refinement. La Gloutonnerie is French enough to feel exotic, but cozy enough to make it your Friday night fix. <br /><br /><br />

"Service & ambiance here have not been dulled by years. Great experience. I love that the chef has been inspired by French technique, but nothing was overpoweringly heavy. Starters: celery root soup (non creamy and fresh), foie gras cold (succulent and not to thick), pork shoulder ravioli (in a light earthy jus), and duck cconfit strudel (fruit compete raised this to fantastic, best starter). Mains: gnochetti octopus (best entree, ink and tomato played well), toothfish in fennel consommé (delicate fish, fresh), halibut (iberico and ham gave some flavor but not amazing), and pork loin (chestnut spaetzle paired well with the meat and creamy collards). Of course, the pot de crème dessert was light and decadent. Old school preserved."

The Enoteca at Cinghiale celebrates the modern Italian table. It is designed to be a playful section of the restaurant, as well as a gathering place; the center of downtown where everyone goes to meet over business and social occasions. The space has a lively urban bustle that features rich woods, wrought iron chandeliers and a handcrafted marble tile floor. The centerpiece is a 40-ft mustard-yellow marble bar flanked by two bronze wild boar sculptures that appear to be lunging into the space from the wild. Adjacent to the main bar is a Salumeria that features traditional meats, cheeses and antipasti; each prepared in open view. The Enoteca staff is highly trained on Italian wines and looks forward to serving you from the over 400 label selection. There are approximately 40 wines by the glass. Food & Wine magazine recognized Cinghiale for having one of the best new wine lists in the country for 2008.
