I've been to l'Etoile three times and have always had a memorable dinner. Being a fan of oysters, I can objectively say that the ones at l'Etoile are the best I've ever had. The atmosphere is relaxing and initing and the service attentive without being intrusive. It's worth the price.

This restaurant is in a country house right in town and easily accessible. While reviews state it is for special occasions, the complex menu suggests it should be an intimate celebration for 4-6 guests at the most. A larger group will compromise quality. That said, the medley of a dozen oysters prepared three ways would be enough for me to... More

We went here for a celebratory dinner and the food was just amazing. The service was perfect, they were able to recommend all of us just the right dishes and wine to go with. One of my friends ordered the lobster which was spectacular and the desserts were very good also. I would definitely go back and recommend it. It... More

I have always loved eating at L'Etoile. The food is special, although the menu doesn't change as often as I'd like. Staff is very attentive. Sitting in the bar area is quite cozy

We love to come here and sit in the bar area. The cocktails are always delicious. The food is always outstanding, creative and delicious! My favorite is the lobster, my friends enjoyed the short ribs. But you can't make a mistake no matter what you order!

My wife and I are foodies and we dined here summer 2015 and thought it was wonderful. We had dinner again last night and we feel the same way. My wife had the short ribs which were wonderful and the pannacotta while I had the Spanish octopus and lamb chops. The lamb was perfectly cooked and the octopus was delicious.... More

We recently had dinner at L'etoile and the food was very good. We shared a spinach salad and had the beef short ribs on a bed of polenta. The polenta was one of the best I have had. The staff was helpful. The restaurant is located in an old house and had very little charm.

One of the finest restaurants on MV. It's not pretentious and the food is wonderful. We love going and dining under the tent. Nice wine selection as well. High ticket dining, but worth the price of the ticket! I've never had a bad meal here,
