La Foret Restaurant Review

: If you’re tired of small plates, big trends and über-hip lounge fare, La Forêt is the place for you. Enjoy fine French cuisine in a beautiful old-country setting; relax at a window seat overlooking a meandering stream and the lush foothills of New Almaden. Choose from one of two six-course tasting menus or order à la carte. Start with scallops, escargots or chilled lobster tail. Entrées include a variety of meats, pastas, fish and poultry, but there are also variations for more adventurous palates, including a buffalo steak and a “wild game special.” End the meal with a fluffy Grand Marnier soufflé for two or a classic French dessert. The wine list focuses on California primarily with secondary attention to France and Italy. Service is attentive. The restaurant offers special holiday, banquet and brunch menus.
