    Food was really poor. We were a party of 3 and two of the main courses were inedible - burger and salmon. The service was also poor. The waiter was totally uninterested. Would not return.

    We were there for lunch. It was very busy and very loud. This did not allow us to really appreciate the beautiful space. Condiments (salt & pepper) seemed to be in short supply.

    Quality of the food is excellent and very traditional French (duck confit, steak frites, roast chicken, cassoulet, raw bar, salads chevre and nicoise, etc.) in a lively and pretty atmosphere. Tables are small. Service is perfunctory. Wines are basic and, like the food, priced at twice what they should be... but it's a touristy area, so not out of line with similar restaurants nearby.

    The restaurant is beautiful! You can eat outside while being inside a large covered and heated courtyard that has been classily (is that a word?) decorated. The menu is mostly French or what the Americans think of as French, which, since we are in America is perfect (no sweetbreads) We had Croque Madame and an omelette dish---very good. The iced tea was the only really bad item on the table. Service was quick and impersonal----perfect for us with a theatre date. I would stay away from the inside dining area on the right unless you like a really LOUD experience.

    We went pre theater and we’re pleasantly surprised at the overall experience. The food and service were great (the portions were huge - which could be good or bad). Also a great space but the noise is as you’d expect for a large open space. Really happy to have found a good restaurant in the theater district. They are hard to come by!

    Great restaurant My advice is to order the appetiser separately from the main course, otherwise they will serve the main course directly after your appetiser This speed is ruining the nice romantic atmosphere of a dinner The food is delicious and the place looks very warm I would eat here again for a nice dinner

    So kind of a weird dining experience. Got us right in for our reservation. Ordered some wine came right away. Ordered a couple of Cesare salads and our mains. A little disappointed they did not have the bone in NY that was on the menu, but hey that stuff happens. My wife ordered the lamb, it was fantastic. I opted for the standard NY with fries. NY was not very good. Definitely choice grade I would suspect?, had some seriously gristle running through it. It was priced pretty low at $49.00, but would have rather paid more for a better steak. Time between finishing our salads and receiving our mains was reeeealy long. People who arrived 30 minutes after us were receiving their dinners. Waiter took it upon himself to apologize for the wait and buy us each a glass of wine, very nice gesture. Overall the experience was meh. I'd give them another try, but with so may choices out there not sure when.

    We read great reviews on this place which is why we selected it for r anniversary dinner while in NYC. The atmosphere is lovely. I ordered the escargot for my appetizer- they were ehh, nothing special; my husband ordered a bowl of their soup of the day - too salty & warm not hot. We each got steak - me, prime & hubby, the sirloin for r entrees. I asked for a true medium, which to me is pink, not deep red in the middle, which is how it was delivered to me. They tried 3 times to get it right. They’re a boucherie, they should understand how to serve steaks, or ask or explain when your ordering so both parties have an understanding on expectations. My husband likes rare, so his steak was perfect for him but the fries that came w/ it were limp & just warm & the creamed spinach came out warm as well. I hate being THAT person to complain about food being served but it was such a disappointment. The waiter spent more time guiding us on our wine selection, which was perfect, but should have taken the time to ask more ?s on my request for a ‘true medium’ prime. Maybe we could have avoided the whole wait for a meal that ended up too long & not all that pleasant given the luke-warm food & my poorly prepared prime. I don’t completely blame the server but I did try to explain my prime prep after the 1st offering came out rare. The manager didn’t charge us for my meal & gave us desserts on the house. The profiteroles were just ok but I think at that pt, I just wanted to be done. My husband enjoyed his scoop of vanilla ice cream. I really do appreciate the attempts to make things better but they just couldn’t deliver. We don’t go out to eat to get ‘comp’d’. We truly prefer food delivered to the table hot, crispy & prepped the way we thought we asked. Sorry, I can’t say better on this meal/experience.

    I found this place through google while searching for restaurants to dress fancy for. I love the scenery and our waiter was very nice. Although there was barely any eye contact, I enjoyed the visit and would visit again. I made reservations with a note to add a candle to my boyfriend's dessert and they did just that. The air conditioning was loud on top of everyone talking, but I guess that makes sense because the outside seating had an echo to it. Outside seating also had heating, but my boyfriend and I weren't sitting under it so it was a little chilly. One of the waiters took awesome photos of us. I wish I got his name but he said he used to be a photographer AND he sang his own version of happy birthday to my boyfriend which was awesome.

    First rate onion soup gratinee, roast beef dauphinois and profiteroles. Excellent variety of spirits available, including absinthe, which I had to try. The only sore point was a New York strip which had the consistency of shoe leather.

    Onion soup was bland with few onions. Steak tartare did not seem fresh with few capers and a tiny quail egg. Escargots we’re plentiful but also overcooked and in an overwhelming and watery butter sauce that did not hold up to even the crusty bread. Tagliatelle was also bland and you had to ask for cheese which took so long that the dish was cold upon arrival. We waited so long for our mains that we had to speak to the mgr. He was nice and bought us desert for the wait but the meal was really not worth the money. Go for a drink and call it a day.
