Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very good and reasonably priced food (especially for the lunchtime set menu). The setting is lovely and the service was great. If I had to choose one place in cognac, I think if looking at food alone, poulpette is slightly bette. However, the service and...atmosphere at la maisonette is slightly better so it depends on the day I guess.More

Amazing staff ( spoke English). Helped us select the best good for our personal preferences, and matched wines. A relaxed atmosphere with simply incredible food.

Again I write as the food was & service the worst but its France so be expected. My late father was a master butcher . My advice dont eat meat in France & dont go to this restaurant if you are British , I'm Spanish...but they didn't care . What you dont like fat , no on my meat I like meat . I really dont care about their opinion at this restaurant I just wanted decent food for what we were paying & we have travelled the world . French food is the worst they invented sauces to cover the rubbish they dish up , fact .More

We just walked down on a Wednesday evening and we’re made very welcome. The tuna to share was amazing. My husband had the pork and I had the steak. Both very good. Lovely atmosphere and good service. We tried a glass of two local white...wines before moving onto red wine. The Sauvignon Gris was a lovely find!More

It is some three years since I was last at La Maison. Gosh! How it has changed. Gone is the silver service, lovely table cloths and traditional French food. It has been replaced with a very funky City wine bar feel with smaller snacking dishes,...some with a strong Pacific fusion feel. The dishes are immaculately presented, carefully served and very tasty. 3 years ago, there were few lunchtime customers. Today, a Tuesday in mid-October, the place was packed. The wine list is extensive and extremely reasonably priced. Service is a little slow but all in all a very memorable lunch. Recommended.More

First of all we made a reservation and asked about the menus. However as we love eating good quality and healthy dishes, we have liaised with Cedric the Front of House Manager to ensure that they could offer dishes that suit us. Cedric has been...very understanding and was very keen to help us. The Starters were lovely and well executed we had the Salmon and the Falafel. As we had Tuna the night before and did not want to repeat again they offered to swap to the Maigre (Fish), which was well executed. We had the Cheese board which was excellent and the Pavlova for dessert. However we personally think the Starters were slightly pricey but overall Great Team, Atmosphere and We will be coming back. BRAVO AND SPECIAL THANKS To Cedric and the TeamMore

We went to La Maison after our friends in France had booked it for dinner on a Wednesday evening. When we arrived we were given a warm welcome at the door by the head waiter which was followed by excellent service at the table. We...opted for 2 courses entrée and plat then decided to share a portion of cheese at the end . By the time we had the amuse bouches , the pre-entrée and the delicious homemade bread on top of the 2 courses we were pleasantly stuffed leaving just enough space to try a cognac. Would go back again if in the area .More

An elegant restaurant with good service. The food is pleasing but aesthetically I found the presentation of my main course (sea bass) rather unappetising and grey. The deserts were superb and the amuse bouchée were very tasty.More

We went to La Maison after a visit to a Cognac house, so we were already feeling pretty mellow. One of our friends is allergic to all things onion and garlic-related, so we were not sure if she would be able to find anything she...could eat. In fact, they were not able to accommodate all her needs, but they were very gracious about it. Nothing seemed to be a problem. I am also vegetarian, so the chef came up with special options for me on the special 3 course menu. Although we had the least expensive, 3 course menu, it actually turned into 6 courses, with a plate of amuse-bouches before we even ordered, and a beautiful tiny cauliflower panne cotta before the entree. Finally, along with dessert, there was a plate with mignardises of 3 varieties. I think it was easier because the restaurant was very quiet on this Monday at lunch time, but we were extremely impressed by the way the servers and chef worked with our needs.More

My husband and I booked a table for dinner at La Maison while we were staying in Cognac. The atmosphere is nice and elegant, as the restaurant wasn't fully booked, we could choose between sitting in the patio or inside. We chose to sit outside...to enjoy the fresh air and the sound of the fountain. The service was ok. The waiters/waitress, all quite young, were very nice and welcoming although a little bit clumsy (probably due to a lack of experience). But this was the case everywhere we've been in Cognac. The food was excellent. We both had the Menu Maison which was delicious. I had the Foie gras as a starter and the Truite for a main. The foie gras was excellent, especially the peach garnish which added a nice sweet touch. The truite was very well cooked but I found the "croute de paprika" to be a little bit too salty for my taste. Both the dishes were nicely displayed. The amuse-bouche were ok but nothing to write home about. In terms of wines, I only regretted that we only had a choice between two reds by the glass... otherwise I found my Kir Royal to be well balanced, not too much blackcurrant liquor which is rare and good. Overall a very nice evening and I would definitely go back if I return to Cognac.More
