  • One of my favorite places to go get coffee with friends or a bite to eat. Architecture is designed to take you to France and Europe with the open air street Mall feel with lots of outdoor dining and outdoor seating for you and your family. There is also an underground parking structure and a mini Eifel Tower. String lights overhead for great ambient light and an outdoor seating area with a fireplace to relax. Lots of businesses here in this tiny village. Whether you want a workout, catch the game, have dinner, or shop, this is really a cool place in Raleigh.👍🇫🇷🗼
  • Visited Lafayette Grill in Lafayette village for a friend's birthday dinner. Apart from the birthday celebration, the second most eye catching thing for me was the staff.. Maybe it's the personality of the particular male waiter who toke our orders, was extraordinary. When I visite a high end restaurant, I look our for 3 things. The place, design decorations, 2. The staff or the treatment who get once you walk in through the door and 3. The food. In this case, Lafayette Grill checked out the whole 3 items and made the birthday dinner great. The place was warm and beautiful, we where seated by this beautiful fireplace, the food was great and the staff was more than professional and warm. We later toke a stroll outside for some pictures and also to take in the romantic beauty of the environment. Even though it was close to the road to led into Capital Blvd, Lafayette Village was located in a world of its own...
  • Nice and quaint like a French village. Would really like to see more quick places to eat. Parking can be a challenge on weekends and evenings. Lots of nice shops. My favorite is the Savory Spice Shop. If you can't find a space I suggest trying the underground parking garage with a stairwell in the back leading up to the middle of the shops and restaurants.
  • Architecturally unique newish construct. It is a small strip mall designed in a circle with parking on the outside and a plaza in. Mostly non chain eateries. Offices upstairs and maybe some apartments. Designed to look like a small interconnected village from Normandy France. There is even a small scale replica if the Eiffel Tower fronting Falls if the Neuse Road. Would like it to feel more like France. There is a crepe place there but it was to posh for my mood when I visited.
  • Nice out doors mall. However not very handicapped accessible. The Italian restaurant is wonderful! Food flavorful and served in great time. The biggest drawback as I said this place isn't very handicapped accessible which is a BIG negitave for me!
