Latest Review

I noticed that VeiledEuphoria added her review to this one and other reviews so I decided I'd add my response to her review as well. Though, on her other comments, she didn't post the part about how much the champagne costs. I would like to say to that "if you have to ask, you can't afford it". In addition, there are several different bottles of champagne but if she wanted something more modestly priced, she could have asked for sparkling wine that isn't real champagne. Real champagne comes from Champagne, France so it's cheaper here than going there for it.

My original comment in response to hers:
1. How can it be overrated when you say yourself that Boise lacks authentic French establishments?
2. Planned yes, contrived no. People decorate their homes and businesses with what makes them happy so I don't see how that could be contrived. The interior of Le Coq Rouge changes on occasion with a few staples. I enjoy the ribbons and fresh and fake flowers. The lighting is perfect for a romantic date or for a simple, relaxing drink after a long day.
3. I don't think they could get rid of the {part removed by administrator} because she's an owner. And thank god! I don't care to sit in a nice restaurant when the only one to greet me is my hostess and then the waiter that changes shifts or goes out for a smoke break right when I'm ready to order. The atmosphere is familial and welcoming.
4. Something tells me that you have no idea what an authentic French atmosphere would be like. I've been all over France, enjoyed numerous dinners from home cooked to restaurants to street fare. I find it to be very authentic and absolutely delicious. Some of the dishes have been better than any I've had in France. If the owner is French, the chef is French, the waitstaff is French, the freakin' butter is even from France, how can that not be authentic?
5. I can't even understand for sure what you were trying to say about wanting an orgy of taste so I'll let that one go.

I have been to bad restaurants. I have been to good restaurants with bad owners. I have been to great restaurants with undesirable patrons. So has everyone else.
What people are looking for in a review is not who sets your teeth on edge but rather what makes your experience enjoyable. If the person that you spoke of in such an unladylike manner (to the extent that it was moderated) bothered you so much, don't return. Continue sipping your 10 year old Irish whiskey as your profile says and leave the more refined tastes to the rest of us that enjoy the experience provided by such a wonderful hostess and authentic chef. Or was that the issue? She didn't offer you something malted?


PS. It only makes sense to push it by the bottle. If you want one glass and no one else buys that kind of wine, the rest of the bottle is wasted. All companies try to sell by the bottle to save their customers money and to avoid unnecessary waste. If it's 13 or 15$s a bottle and you get 4 glasses, wouldn't you rather buy 1 bottle than 2 glasses for the same price? It only makes sense.

And Casi, I loved your post!
