I had gone to La Cachette a short while back and was very impressed. The food was excellent, the fois gras as authentic as in France, and the service was impeccable. Our glasses never got even three-quarters empty before our server or her assistants were filling it back up. It was expensive, but worth it for the occasion.

I read in 1998,1999 there were many reviews that the quality of food and service had taken a dive and that quality of the place was no longer what it once was. In 2000, Zagats (for better or worse) ranked it very highly. My question is that I will be taking my mother to a nice dinner for a special occasion, and have considered La Cachette again. Have any of you been there recently, and do you think that my experience is again typical or was I lucky and the chef had a good night?
