Seats were uncomfortable
Not sure how the tips were divided up.. Don't think we should be tipping for the cost of the train ride? Also should see a detailed receipt. Food was excellent..our compliments top the chef..
This was the best dinner experience you can have, the train ride, the service, the atmosphere and the dinner. The dinner was prepared on the train and the presentation was just perfect and most of all, it was delicious!
We were celebrating our 50th anniversary and wanted to do something different. The staff was great and the food was very good. We have already recommended this to everyone that has asked what did you do for your 50th anniversary. Thanks for the enjoyable time.
We really enjoyed our evening on the train!
Service and staff were top notch. Main course, salad and bread were excellent, appetizer and dessert average. Drinks menu was extensive, with fair pricing. All in all, we had a lovely evening.
It was such a lovely evening, Amanda our server was attentive and pleasant. My party of 3 had a wonderful time!!
My wife and I had a wonderful dinner on the Cafe Lafayette Dinner Train on August 2nd. The food offerings were all delicious and beautifully presented, from the delicious dinner roll, salad, main course, sorbet, and mouth watering chocolate cake dessert. The wine selection was plentiful. In addition to the wonderful dinner, we were seated in the Dome at a table with a very nice couple. We not only enjoyed the food and scenery along the route, but we made new friends and had a wonderful evening. This is the third time that my wife and I take the Cafe Lafayette Dinner train and we will certainly do it again the next time that we go to New Hampshire.
The food, service and staff were all excellent. We couldn't have been more pleased.
Really fun, and very much a nostalgic atmosphere.
Totally positive experience! Like taking a step back in time. Food was great. A bit pricy, but well worth it. I highly recommend.
The staff was friendly and informative. The service was terrific-- timely and food/drinks served with care. The main entree/salad were excellent. The appetizers were just ok. We were a bit disappointed believing that there was to be a narrator explaining some of the trip's surroundings and other historical information.
Service and atmosphere were awesome, food was great however the portions could be increased slightly. Overall we had an amazing time!
We thoroughly enjoyed our outing on the dinner train; it took us 14 years of saying "we should do that" to finally get on board. Our trip was not fully booked so we were the only ones at our table; in fact, with the exception of one four-person party, our entire section seated two to a table, which meant it felt quite spacious. The meal service lasted just about the entire two-hour ride, but the pacing for the five-course meal was perfect. The service was professional and friendly, and the food was very good. The portions (European style) were spot-on so we did not feel stuffed at all, even after a scrumptious dessert. The choice from four appetizers and four entrees (which included vegetarian options) was a pleasant surprise; we thought we wouldn't have a choice. Not an experience younger children would appreciate, but older ones might. Overall, a very relaxing and enjoyable way for us to celebrate our anniversary. One side note: our kids purchased our gift certificate and we did not know they had paid for us to sit in the dome; we assumed the main level when making our reservations and no one said anything to us when we checked in. However, we found the main level much more spacious and comfortable, and truly loved the trip.
If possible, please provide some information about the types of flora and fauna we can spot during the train ride.
The food was great although I think the portions could be a little bigger for all entries. My only complaint would be that for the amount of money you pay for the second level on the train, you should not have to share a table with strangers because it is kind award and uncomfortable
An incredible experience!
Wonderful experience! Very fun and relaxing dinner.
My husband and I absolutely loved it! The music and old fashion luggage above were great touches. The staff were all great! We enjoyed every minute of it!
Had a great time and really enjoyed the surprise menu. We were contemplating calling to see what was on the menu, but we’re so glad we didn’t. It forced us to try new things. The appetizers were excellent. The main course was prepared perfectly. Service was top notch. Thanks for a great evening!
It's a lovely experience for a special occasion. However, the choice of menu is limited, which is understandable, given it's on a train. Service is excellent, with very pleasant staff and the cleanliness was impressive. It is somewhat overpriced, but ok for a special occasion.
Very nice and excellent food and service.
Totally enjoyable experience from start to finish
