Le Gourmand has won national and international acclaim in articles ranging from the International Herald Tribune to the New York Times

"It is true that many Seattle area restaurants make a point of touting their use of locally grown and produced foods. But no one seems to do it with the sincerity and delight with which Naftaly sources and uses local ingredients...Le Gourmand is the quintessential Seattle restaurant.”

- Seattle Magazine.

"A rare place. Le Gourmand restores your faith in cooking for the love of it."
