Tue, Jan. 29, 2013 - Auberge du petit prince
We arrived for our 8:00pm reservation, and had to wait until 8:30pm to be seated because the only table of 6 in the restaurant was occupied by a group that refused to leave. We ended up having to literally stand 3 feet away from said table and look at them before we were able to be seated. Then one of the people from that party came up and asked how long we waited, and didn’t apologize after receiving an answer…. We were not offered any sort of discount for our wait there by the restaurant.
We had the Londonlicious prix fixe menu, with some drinks on the side. Unfortunately, overall the food quality was only so-so. It wasn’t bad… but I could have gotten better quality of food for a much cheaper price (i.e. probably $20 cheaper).
The creme brulee was probably one of the better ones I’ve had though. The distinguishing feature was the lack of a thick hard glaze, and a non-runny custard underneath.
Overall cost was about $55 / person. I have definitely had much more memorable food from Blackfriaris for a previous Londonlicious visit, and spent about $20 less.
The food quality from Auberge is about the middle of the pack for its type of restaurants, but the price was definitely higher. I would not recommend this restaurant.
