The Champagne Cave is a lavish, subterranean lair dedicated to the pursuit of bubbles with gourmet bites. Drinks include boutique wines & modern spirits crafted into classic cocktails, paired with delicious French & Italian fare. Spring small plates include steak tartare, artisan charcuterie, escargots Burgundy & a sublime caviar parfait. Heartier options from sister restaurant Marchesa, above, are available, too. Weekend only table minimums are $50 per person per seating. No minimum for bar seating. Couches in the intimate, boho-chic space, with its own bar and barrel-vaulted ceilings, are designed for comfort. The lush decor is accented with resin tusks, eclectic artwork, velvet Venetian sofas & exotic lanterns. Lounge music keeps the mood chill until the wee hours, DJs rotate in. Now open at 100% capacity. Per protocols, we ask you wear a mask upon arrival & when not eating or drinking. Merci!

I booked this reservation for my boyfriends birthday and we were both really looking forward to going. About an hour and a half before the reservation we received a phone call saying the venue was double booked and that our reservation was canceled. We were left scrambling on a Friday night with no reservation and we’re not offered anything for the inconvenience. Very disappointed and sad that we didn’t have the special birthday celebration like we planned.

Be aware there are no dining tables in the cave, so you have to balance your food on your lap and the tables are very small. (Like a small coffee table) I would recommend people to go there for a glass of wine and French rolls; and eat your meal at a table upstairs if you can get a reservation. The service, however, was exceptional.

Music got loud. Service was slow because the bartender was also the only server. Tasty food.

The ambiance was intoxicating, it felt like we were in some Parisian’s home. The music was hot, they played house music, kinda lounge like vibe that was very appropriate for the restaurant. At a certain time, the restaurant turns into a club and the music was a bit too loud but overall, a very enjoyable experience. I’d do it again.

The downstairs was too dark and more for younger /cocktails etc. loved the main dining room. Only complaint is that they prefer you to order appetizers and entrees at the same time. We did longer did not feel rushed at all though. Comfortable room

After a long week and a day of travel, it was the perfect spot for sips and nibbles. Our hostess Natalie made us instantly feel like treasured regulars and her recommendations were spot on. The escargot and shrimp jovan are delicious especially with the hot fresh bread with herb butter. Simply delightful. We will definitely be back.

We ordered the Charcuterie board for an appetizer and had two cocktails, the Secret Garden and another gin cocktail (forgot the name!). Delicious! Ordered the Duck and the Rack of Lamb, so incredible. It was our anniversary so they gave us complimentary bubbles and that was so sweet of them. The ambiance was sexy and cool. Loving the Exclusivity feel of the restaurant and the chic decor. Loved our experience and will definitely be coming back to try more items on the menu. Thank you!
