Words escape me. How does one pit pen to paper to describe excellence? The chef is a marvel! I have eaten in many a starred adorned restaurant and hands down this one is at the top! The decor is to die for. The personnel is...of military precision and move around in the background with grace and discretion. The whole meal was seamless. And don’t get me started on the drinks side. From the Krug to the “mystery black glass wine) 🤫 and finishing off with the grand cru latte macchiato. It was indeed a pleasurable experience.More

My first 3 Michelin star dining experience and I will never forget it. Not just a highlight of my France trip but a life highlight and the most perfect way to celebrate my husband's birthday. A 3.5 hour dinner that started with drinks in their...garden and ended with coffee and tea back in the garden. We had the Emotion chef's whim 10 course tasting menu, but with the mise amuse-bouche, surprise dishes and multiple presentations within each course we completely lost count of how many courses were actually served. The service was exceptional. Every single person, including the chef who came out to say hello and goodbye, was lovely and attentive. Every detail seems to have been meticulously curated and I appreciated it from beginning to end.More

A fantastic and tasty meal in the heart of champagne. This was our 3rd 3 star meal in 3 weeks so I tempered my expectations. I shouldn’t have. The tasting menu started off with the most delicious amise bouches and kept getting better and hitting...a crescendo with its caviar potato dish. Absolutely flawless from food to service. Bravo.More

Evening started with a cocktail overlooking the garden, which was a very relaxing way to start the meal. Excellent food and service. Exquisite presentation, including even the bread we would be served. Servers were friendly and professional and would engage with us. Chef and owner...greeted guests and chatted. Attention to detail, yet also comfortable. Try the tomato dish; it is fantastic.More

Looking for a hotel, when travelling from the south, to the north of France, the L'Assiette Champenoise looks like it ticks all the boxes but don't be fooled. It's over priced, pretension and opinionated staff, who clearly think they are doing you a favour. Do...yourself and your pocket a favour, and drive right past.More

Dining at the Michelin 3-star L'Assiette Champenoise was a definite culinary highlight during our recent tour of the Champagne region. What struck us again is the very palpable difference between the sea of good restaurants out there and the very few great ones. L'Assiette Champenoise...firmly and deservedly stands among the latter. We are privileged to often dine at highly-rated restaurants and rarely find strong differentiation between those and Michelin 1-star contenders. Many 1-stars disappoint us, and on this trip that “honor” went to Le Foch in Reims. The step to 2-star tends to be more discernible, though certainly not always. However, each time we have dined at 3-star level the differentiation from all others has been vast, and the experience has left an indelible impression on our senses. These are veritable gastronomic celebrations at the highest level for the very discerning foodie and all those who want to expand their gustatory awareness. Our expectations at this level are clear. We want perfection in all things, the setting, the service, the taste balance of the dishes and the all-round enjoyment of the best that the culinary world has to offer. We also expect to expand our knowledge of ingredients, of food preparation techniques and of accompanying products. L'Assiette Champenoise met and exceeded our expectations along all of those dimensions. A litmus test we apply to any restaurant is which of their dishes and products we will remember in times thereafter, i.e. what has left a lasting impression. Frankly, very few restaurants leave such a memorable mark. But, at L'Assiette Champenoise it was several things. It started with a local version of a Pineau de Charentes called Ratafia from a Champagne producer named Henri Giraud. This tipple we rate highly. Also of particular note was one of the main dishes consisting of layered dove, foie gras, bacon and spinach all wrapped into a very fine pastry and accompanied by a great jus. This was an absolute delight. In fact, we experienced a re-creation of that same dish some days later at La Grillade Gourmande in Epernay, and while beautiful and tasty in its own right, this also highlighted my earlier point here of the vast difference between good and great. The sommelier, too, did an exceptional job of marrying wines with the dishes. The latter is an added dimension one needs to experience in order to fully appreciate. Whether wines, beers, liqueurs or other spirits, the right pairing of drinks with foods will unlock added tasting sensations, which can turn the already exceptional into the sublime. We had several of those precious moments throughout our meal here, moments to be truly savored. Of note here is that the chef, Arnaud Lallement, was present both at our arrival and departure, made regular contact with his guests, and we appreciated that personalized touch to the overall experience. L'Assiette Champenoise is a testament to his skill and those of the team around him that they have continued to build on his father’s foundation and further established an exceptional restaurant that has evolved well throughout the decades. We look forward to experiencing this evolution again at a future point in time and fully recommend it to anyone passing by or through Reims.More

This is our second visit to Assiette Champenoise ...What a great restaurant ! We had a drink in the bar before dinner. Champagne came out a magnum bottle, the nibbles were 1st class: Pate en croute, foie gras tartelettes, parmesan puff, john Dory cakes -...delicious. The dining room is contempory and airy, tables are nicely spaced and the lighting is particularly deft. For starters we had scallops with beetroot and a caviar quenelle with haddock mousse. Mains were poularde with artichokes and venison served 3 different ways. Everything was simply exceptional. Having opted not to have dessert, we were presented with all sorts of gourmandises with our herbal tea: mini cannelés gloriously light, creme brulée tartelettes, pates de fruits and marrons glacés, chocolates and lollies . Of special note the absolutely delicious bread made locally with a 30 years old yeast. The service was well judged, timed to perfection, discret and yet charming. All in all a fabulous experience.More

Where to start? First in our opinion the restaurant doesn’t deserve 3 stars!!! Why? Because no meal is excellent, it’s a good experience but you don’t have this sparkle you can find in most of 3 Michelin stars restaurants! Then, portions are no generous at...all, when it comes to lobster and caviar they just give u a very tiny little bit! And worst of all when you’re not happy with a dish they don’t really care, I took the truffle dégustation menu, the poularde wasn’t good at all, very dry... and they I almost had to beg to remove it from my bill?! It’s not professional at all, they have it in the menu for 155€, and when you don’t like it and u ask for them to refund you because it’s not eatable, they remove 40€ from your bill!!! It’s not about the money, but about the fact that they really don’t care about their clients... To finish desserts are excellent! Only the price is 3 Michelin stars 😉More

The famous restaurant L’Assiette Champenoise belongs to the top haute cuisine restaurants in the world. 3 Michelin stars and 19,5 out of 20 GaultMillau points – now, if that doesn’t ask for a visit by the team of connoisseurs of Ohh Cuisine… L’Assiette Champenoise is...built on the basis of a straight forward family business. Top chef Arnaud Lallement, his wife Magali and sister Mélanie are currently rocking this restaurant, following the footsteps of their parents who created it about 40 years ago. The family atmosphere is immediately noticeable when making your way into the restaurant after handing over the car keys for valet parking. A full team standing in line right after the front door is ready to take care of you in the most cordial way. We may relax and get totally pampered now. Aperitif and bites at the sunny terrace looking over the garden, that’s always a good idea. Being in the center of the Champagne area, a glass of fine bubbly can’t be missed here with our bites of foie gras, spicy fish and a parmesan sesame crisp. After sitting at the open terrace for a while, we are guided inside by one of the many staff members. Inside the dining area, a gigantic chandelier is decorating the large, courteous chamber and the space is filled with classy, lounge music. The room is white and bright and divided in various departments. Beautiful, elegant, refined. We are glad to meet chef Arnaud Lallement, who provides us with an introduction to the culinary journey we’re about to experience. More appetizers please! The bites left us longing for more. An amuse of eel with foie gras of duck and lemon juice is watering our mouths when looking at it: what a beauty. And what a gentle and rich flavors come out when tasting this beauty. Champagne turns out to be a leading lady in our dining experience. It comes with every course. Yes, we are quite frequent Champagne drinkers (if there would exist olympics for drinking Champagne, we would be to pro to get in) and yes, we are huge fans of this festive drink, but a glass of Champagne with each dish might just get a bit too sparkly – even for us. Still, our curiosity is triggered in view of the interesting food-wine combinations to come. A master kick-off is taken care of by the chef with its signature dish of langoustine, lemon caviar and langoustine tartare with chili. This starter is surprisingly soft and – also not unimportant – amazing to look at before it finds its way to your mouth (that goes quick, believe us). After our menu carries on a little stronger with fresh sardine, Mizu pasta and black sesame sauce, we receive another classical dish. Actually, the following dish is based on a recipe of the father of the chef: blue lobster, juice of the lobster, sweet wine and paprika spices. The aromas just splash right to you. Also, we can’t help but feeling very content with regard to the amount of lobster on our plate. The chef has been very generous – and we like it. Right after our fifth Champagne of the evening has been poured in our glasses, the next dish of sea bass with Asian seaweed and citrus fruit comes to our table. The citrus provided the exact right acids the creamy sea bass is asking for. With our head course almost arriving, we can’t controle our cravings for a nice, full French red wine to go with it. That forms a pleasant change from our Champagne parade. The main course comes in threefold: rooster filet with artichokes and parmesan cheese; ravioli with the leg and the liver of the rooster and a mix of vegetables with pressed rooster leg. Such a tender and juicy piece of meat with the exactly perfect amount of crispiness and softness it needs coming from the surrounding elements. Just perfect! The sun shining on the terrace lures us outside again to have our dessert. An original apricot dessert with aloe vera mousse, together with Ratafia: a local dessert wine, which forms an excellent match with the fruitiness of the dessert. Combined, it reminds you of a cheerful summer but at the same time, the flavors are deep and intens. Luckily for us, finishing our dessert does not mean finishing the meal. We still have some awesome friandises to enjoy, such as a tiny strawberry tartlet and a delicious merengue lollipop. In short, we can conclude: this place has it all. Warm, familiar hospitality, a beautiful unique location and high quality food and presentations. All is taken care of in the greatest way, down to the minutest detail. Chef Arnaud Lallement is known for celebrating the sublime quality of products, and it’s a true gastronomical party indeed. A party you definitely would not want to miss out on!More
