Remy visits all the guests via silver platter carried ( sorry, carted) by a CM Maitre Dame .
You might have a visit quickly after seating, during your meal or closer to the end.
On my last visit we saw REMY immediately and again before we left.

We went at that time last year and yes we saw him. I don't think he is there everyday though. Not sure of the day but I think it's Saturday that he's not there.

Remy starts his rounds at 12:30, 1:40, 2:50 and 5:20 Monday - Saturday. He does not appear on Sunday. You should see him during his last round of the day. Just be sure you're in your seat when he comes to your table because if you're away (in the bathroom, for example) you will miss him. He won't come back and you cannot go over to see him.

Also he's a highly sophisticated audio-animatronic figure who sometimes has unexpected mechanical problems so he may not appear. If you have small children it's best not to promise they'll see him, but let it be a surprise.

So if you have a 1:40 reservation, what are the odds of seeing him? Shoul I make it earlier?

REMY Info:

1) Inside Les Chefs de France.
2) Monday-thru-Saturday at 12:30, 1:40, 2:50 & 5:20pm
3) Visiting
. . . he usually comes out right on schedule
. . . the cart makes one trip around the eatery
. . . you must wait until he comes to your table *
. . . you cannot get up and go over to him, handlers guard him
. . . if you miss him, he does not make a second trip
. . . you must wait for the next scheduled time
. . . if your ADR is near a scheduled time, be early
. . . you may not be seated on time, and will miss him
. . . you might be in line waiting for a table when he appears
. . . if so, you wait for the next scheduled trip

* If people gathered around the cart, it would clog the aisles. Guests
might be pressing their shorts against another guest's tabletop and
food (yuck, gross). Also, he's temperamental and occasionally doesn't
appear at all - and without prior notice. Could be technical glitches or even
absenteeism. There are times he breaks down during the tour and has
to stop visiting. So don't overly promise the little ones.

As far as the tour that starts at 1:40 - maybe, maybe not. It really depends on when and where you're seated. If you're already seated and he hasn't come to your area, you will see him. However, if you are in the process of being seated or you're seated in an area he's already visited you won't see him until his 2:50 tour. It takes him abou 45-50 minutes to complete his circuit of the restaurant.

In general we make our reservation no later than 30 minutes before the start of one of his rounds. We've always been fortunate to see him during the upcoming circuit and didn't have to wait for the following tour.

So Remy isn't a human-sized costumed character?

No, he's about 6 inches tall and is wheeled about on a cart. Here's a link to a new thread - you can see his photo on post #4:

Thanks for the info. We love Chefs de France, go every time and like (at least what we thought! were) early dinners around 6:30 or so, but maybe it would be worth trying to go earlier to the the special Remy,,,!!

Nope, he will be done for the day before then.
