The decor includes velvet drapes, gilded mirrors, and roses on every table. You will feel like you have stepped back in time, when men and women dressed for dinner and decadence was expected.
In addition to the amazing surroundings and the wonderful staff, the food lived up to the expectations placed upon it as well. We started off with champagne (something you have to do in a restaurant like this). For an appetizer, I had coquilles St. Jacques, which was amazing - no other words can describe it. I had the filet mignon for my entrée, and it was served just as I like it. The flavors were wonderful, and the marinade was unique and well worth it. Perhaps the best part of Chez Philippe is the desserts, for which you should definitely save some room. Half of the dessert is the presentation itself; I had the warm chocolate cake fondant and almost didn't want to ruin the presentation. Don't worry, I did.
Chez Philippe has an extensive wine list in addition to a full bar. I would suggest having an after-dinner drink either in the restaurant or moving into the lounge of the Peabody to continue your journey of self-indulgence.
