We are used to the perfunctory greeting when neither Daoud nor Hassan are there, but the food preparation is in decline. Rare is rarely rare, the magret de canard a huge disappointment and I swear the hamburgers have shrunken. We loved La Goulye, but will think twice before returning.

It was Easter Sunday dinner. We had an early reservation. We were seated in a terrible place: in front of the coffee maker . We had to listen to the constant clanging and banging of dishes. It took them two hours to serve us two dishes: Cobb lobster salad and a soufliee.
The service was poor.
We will not return.

Went for the Easter Price Fixe lunch at 2pm. They were sold out of a few of the appetizers, which shouldn’t happen so early in the afternoon and especially when the menu is very limited. The service was also mediocre. I understand it was busier than usual, the our waiter had a bad attitude and it was difficult to get his attention to ask for anything. Still love the restaurant and will be back, just not for any type of Price Fixe menu.

Food and service were excellent! The steak tartare was absolutely delicious! It might be the best steak tartare I’ve ever had! We also very much enjoyed the tuna tartare, the octopus appetizer and the lobster salad. We finished with the soufflé for dessert - highly recommend! Wonderful experience!

I love la G
The fact that they keep the traditional dishes on the menu is a plus.
Love their salads, la terrine de foie, the souffle ...

When we wish to go to Paris, but want to skip customs, packing and the airfare- we head to La Goulue . . .
And we are instantly there, in culinary heaven . . .

An old NY experience.. with delicious food, and good energy.

Just make sure you ask the right questions.. i ordered a second glass of wine, and switched from sauvignon to burgundy. i remembered from the menu that most glasses of wine ranged between $16 - $20. I neglected to ask the server the price of my second glass, and ended up with a $28 glass of wine on my bill.
Server should have informed me of my choices - not decided for me - as there were several burgundies on the menu - That would have been excellent service.

Lovely service! Food was amazing. A couple portions small, others large - just ask! BUT quality impeccable. Inside is beautiful, but we did eat outside. Was perfect weather and the outside seating was just divine. Can’t recommend enough!

The food was wonderful! We had the tuna tartare, French onion soup, octopus, and chicken. If you want the soufflé, order it when you sit down. It was unfortunately sold out by the time we got there. You know it’s good when Martha Stewart is eating there... she was eating here at the same time as us!
