We were so pleased after this lunch, we are still savoring every memory of the experience! We reached there on time! We were greeted by our friendly hostess, who we later came to know was the co-proprietor, co-owner of the restaurant and in charge of...More

Recently visited Baumé for lunch and had an amazing meal. Food is deserving of their multiple Michelin stars, and the décor and service make it a unique experience. The restaurant is surprisingly dark, even during lunch the curtains completely block outside light. There's a hanging...More

Very nice food, well worth the Michelin star. Strange entree: very dark. Only 3 tables in the "main" dining room and 2 extra tables alongside the bar. Downside is the drinks: you can only have the wine pairing (or: multiple glasses of 1 of the...More

$1400 for two people for dinner eating pine needles and tofu even though they are shaped like olives is a scam. The value of the food actually consumed by each individual is probably about $20. Yes, the chef is an artist and the presentation of...More

Because this restaurant had two-Michelin stars, my family and I decided to try it out. Although we have eaten in several restaurants with at least two Michelin stars, we were very shocked with the exorbitant price ($280/person; with the cheapest wine pairing, approximately $500/person total)....More

Baume is a very small restaurant run by a husband(chef) and his wife(service). All courses were very good. This is a culinary experience not just a restaurant. Our dinner took about two hours. There are a few wine pairings to choose from. We did not...More

Thanks to my friend, Henri I had the privilege to discover this place. Now, I'm passing on the recommendation to everyone who appreciates the art of cooking. Don't go to the Baumê if you are looking for the best steak in town. You want to...More

Me and my hubby went here. Loved it. Modern French cuisine at it´s best. We had the tasting menu which included 6 courses. Things we tried were Sous Vide Beef which was a highlight. Good creative wine list. Good place for those foodies serious about...More

I don't really know what to say about this place. It's a disservice to call it fancy or special or innovative -- it's much more than that. It isn't actually like eating a meal at a restaurant. I went with my mom for a special...More

This is a foodies' restaurant! And the food is exceptional. The wine pairings are very expensive and only so-so at best; one of our wines had turned (OK, that can happen to anyone). Wine by the glass was $35. Seriously, they need a wine steward...More
