Ashland >Chateaulin Restaurant
Faux French cuisine, good ambience. Nice atmosphere but crowded, almost cramped seating. Small bar. Good wine list. The food is above average but this is a faux french cuisine-- an americanized, northwest style "french" cuisine. It is a bit overpriced. Table service is average. My Wife and I have never been very impressed with this place( in terms of it's food) but many locals like it. I suspect it is not the food but the ambience and the fact that it is a locals meeting place. Last visit, we went with another couple to have their famous desert--La Bombe, a chocolate and ice cream concoction(order one and split it or else risk diabetic coma). We were all disappointed! La Bombe was no where as good as it had been in the past. Good coffee and a nice french brandy. The bill has this weird 15% service charge added to it---not for the waitperson but for the house, so you must also tip the waitperson.
Great Food. Our dining experience was very special. We both had their Rack of Lambe and it was one of the best that I have ever had. Great wine list. The only negative experience I had was that they add a 15% service charge to the menu, which I thought was for our waiter and I added an addtional 5% gratuity. After dinner we had a drink at the bar and talking with the bartender that the 15% charge goes to the reaturant and not the wait person. I was told that we were not the only one to have made that assumption.
