What many would call an underrated gem, Fait Maison – an upscale French restaurant in Edmond – is undoubtedly the stop for a special occasion. 

Some may bristle at the concept of French fine dining – equating it to a stuffy atmosphere or unfriendly service. Not so! Fait Maison excels in superior service in a warm, comfortable and unrushed environment. (Not convinced? Check the glowing Google reviews!)

Many diners opt for the tasting menu, where the decisions are mostly made for you. The experience comes with five courses, plus wine pairings and a cheese course for additional fees. Begin with an amuse bouche consisting of white asparagus, mousseline sauce and caviar. For the second course, you’ll enjoy rigatoni “cocotte” with foie gras and lobster. Next is red mullet stuffed octopus, followed by roasted stuffed quail with mushrooms and mashed potatoes. Save room for dessert – a caramelized frozen souffle awaits you. 

If you prefer to go a la carte, first course highlights include the duck foie-gras and the diver scallop. Continue with French sea bass, Maine lobster, Rohan duckling or milk-fed veal. Desserts range from crepes to homemade ice cream and a Brandy Alexander with vanilla bean ice cream and Cognac. Fait Maison is also lauded for its extensive wine list; your server will be more than happy to suggest excellent pairings, no matter your budget.

If you’d like to visit Fait Maison, but prefer to go a more casual route, the patio is the place to be. With its own exclusive menu, Le Patio offers escargot, steak frites, Croque Madame sandwiches and a special dessert menu.
