Some of my friends in Geneva, love the restaurant l’Armoire to a certain point that we know that when we will meet with them, we will be there for dinner.
It is a decent restaurant, but I am not a big fan… but last night I promised them to give another shot and it was also the only restaurant that took a reservation for 6 at the last minute. Good to have friends who are their best clients ;)

No one really wanted to have starters so we ended up ordering some appetizers to share. The foie gras was particularly delicious…
My friend who ordered a green salad, had on her plate only “frisee and escarole”. I agree that they make part of the green salad family and look pretty on the plate, but they also make the dish impossible to eat. Because you keep trying to look fancy while you chase the salad leafs with your fork. I think restaurants should always add some romaine, so we have something to put under our fork, lol.

As a main dish I ordered “Beef Steak Tartar”… and as usual without onions, shallots or any of the family. I asked my tartar to be very spicy. It came with no onions, but not sure about the spicy part, unless the chef considers ketchup spicy.
It was too sweet but some Tabasco drops, pepper and salt kind of arranged the flavor.
I agree, better adding the spice than having too spicy, but don’t kill my beef with ketchup… I am not an American teenager who believes that ketchup is the sauce for everything.

My friends took the “Cote de Boeuf” (T-bone steak), it was delicious. Some found the risotto on the side too salty but I didn’t mind. Otherwise their French fries were quite crispy and tasty.

There is one thing that I can say about l’Armoire restaurant, their products are prime selection… they have to just work about the seasoning to not ruin the taste.

The service was great; I guess being with the VIP clients helped a lot. And I think the restaurant looks much cozier at night than at lunch time. They have to just be careful with the heating:
I know that I am not a reference, but when we arrived it was so warm that I had the feeling to be a roasted chicken in the oven…. and this time I was not the only one.

I am happy to give another shot to l’Armoire, and as I always say the company is very important, and I had a great one!!!!
