Tante Charlotte was an amazing experience from the time we walked up to the door. We had no reservation, and there were 6 empty tables for 2 (it was pretty much exclusively couples). The discussion between the two very congenial ‘front’ people was almost like...a piece of theatre as they discussed whether they could seat us. They decided yes…and we’re so glad they did (though I’m still not sure there was really an issue). We chose the menu, which includes a champagne cocktail, an appetizer, a main and dessert—and a bottle of wine for 2.
Romantic setting, incredibly personable—and personal—service, and delicious food. Fir all that you get, it’s a true bargain, to be honest. I could share what we ate, but I’m sure it changes. Highlights across our two sets of selections were gazpacho, duck and creme brûlée. The real highlight, though, was the experience, starting from that greeting, then moving to delivery of the cocktail and asking if we’d like our appetizers right away, or if we’d like some time to enjoy the cocktail first. Never rushed, never hovered over, and never ignored or waiting around (he said ‘just wave to me when you want anything). What a great evening!More
