    Candied Pineapple-Lemon Curd Tart was a great dessert choice for the Prix Fixe Lunch menu. Ask to visit the kitchen and watch the students in their classes cooking like pros.

    Smoked salmon was excellent. Pan-seared scallops was cooked perfectly. Braised veal short ribs was luscious. They did a great job with wine pairing for 3 course meal.

    During season, the Fourchu lobster is must! Dinner is great and the French bread to take home at the end makes it even better :)

    great for group parties, reservations recommended - get the bloody mary spicy. balthazar is a few streets down and has long wait times...stop by l'ecole instead. you won't be disappointed.

    Had a great meal here. Great service and good food from an experimental French school of cuisine.

    Food blogger Katherine of Fresalina recommends L'Ecole. "L'Ecole offers a seasonal prix fixe menu with your choice of two outstanding dinners: one made by professional chefs and one made by students."

    Menu changes often. Roasted duck was amazing and I enjoyed the cavatelli with shrimp& fava beans appetizer. Pecan and chocolate truffle dessert was yummy. If u ask they will give u a kitchen tour.

    What I had @ l'ecole is what's in the picture and let me just say it was as good as it looks. L'ecole is a French restaurant where culinary students put their skills to the test & they all deserve A+!

    Food and wine pairing is funky - Rose with sea bass? Um no thanks. Also, the food presentation is kinda bleh.

    Watch out for the soap dispenser in the lavatory. That thing will shoot you in the hip.
