    Went on a Sunday night so this review isn't for the jazz band nights. Great food, very fresh ingredients and priced below value. I felt like I was in Paris. The place was very cute, romantic and played great music at the right level. The host was out waiter as well, I think he owned the restaurant. He had an European accent which I assume was French but who knows. He was nice and knew his wines.

    Despite booking, we waited for over an hour for our table. Staff were very busy and there wasn't much room to wait so it was a bit of an uncomfortable wait, but the staff did recognize that we'd been waiting for ages and after requesting a free drink to make up for it, they were very amenable and our part of 6 each got a glass of champagne on the house.

    Fantastic steak and salmon entrees, and the fois gras was not bad either. We enjoyed ourselves, though our waitress was a bit spacey, forgetting drink orders, disappearing for at least 10minutes at a time, and the pacing between apps and entrees was about 20minutes, without any updates. I ordered a second wine while waiting for entrees, and she forgot to bring it until I was down to the last bite of my entree. This place might be a little understaffed in all sides, but otherwise, great food,

    The service was excellent, the food was very good (except the short ribs were short on flavor despite being tender)and ambiance was perfect (not too loud... not too quiet). The duck pate, au gratin potatoes and green tea ice cream were all very tasty... excellent! As for the flavor issue on the short ribs, the chef reacted to the feedback very positively, was keen to check it out and I'd be surprised if it is served that way again. We'll definitely return!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    I've lived in the area for a long time but only recently discovered this restaurant. It's charming and the food is great but what I love about it most of all is that it wasn't difficult to get a table on a Friday night. It's become increasingly hard to find a cool, relaxed place to eat on weekend nights and the sort of crazy busy vibe attracts a sort of crazy busy person who is not too fun to dine around. So Antibes works well because it's sophisticated in a neighborhood joint sort of way and the food is delicious but not too pretentious and yes, it's very loud, but not frenetic.

    While the food was good (and prices low), the I-should-be-somewhere-else attitude of the waiter pained the whole experience. We found it esp. odd that the waiter could disappear toward the end of our meal. Then we realized she was somewhere else - sitting at the bar with her back to us, eating ?! Waiter never bothered to say look to another waiter if you want something else because my shift is over, or something like that. It was 10:49pm on a Friday. Didn't seem like they were about to close as it was still very noisy and 3/4 full. Another waiter, tall woman, seemed more attentive than our own waiter. The decor is v. nice; someone did that well!

    Potential, but missed the mark. The appetizers were tasty (asparagus salad & tuna tartar special) & menu is well-priced. We ordered a middle course of foie gras, but our entrees were brought next instead. When we mentioned the foie the server apologized & said the kitchen often overlooks coursing & said it would be right out. My husband & I speculated that our entrees were going to sit in the kitchen getting cold while we ate our foie & that's exactly what happened. When we pointed it out, our server again apologized & brought back another round of entrees with fresh sides, but with the same cold & now dried out proteins. The error in coursing can be overlooked, but the stinginess in serving cold food twice is embarrassing.

    If you can hop into Antibes Bistro around 12-2pm on a Sunday for Brunch, that is best. The quiet atmosphere is so welcoming, charming brick wall interior. Can't accommodate large groups really, and you need reservations if you plan to go for dinner, but great atmosphere. Noise level increases as the day moves on. Recommend buying a bottle at night to split at your table for $$ savings. For brunch, they have the BEST Eggs Florentine you can imagine. The hollandaise is the creamiest and most buttery I have ever had. :) Awesome experience, what a gem!

    Every time I bring a group of friends to Antibes Bistro, I look like a hero. Great food, good wines and super reasonable prices mean everyone leaves satisfyingly full, happily buzzed and with plenty of money left in their wallets. You can't go wrong with the short ribs or any of the fish. Service is friendly. Scene is loud and lively. And on some nights, there's even live music. This is one of those neighborhood gems that my friends don't mind coming from the UWS to visit.

    I had walked past Antibes a couple times and my primary impression was that the space looked very inviting, that it was a lively place, and that everyone was having a great time. I finally booked in -- at 6:30 on a Wednesday so it was empty! -- but I did not regret it. Yes, the wait staff is a little hipster lax, so what? They are friendly and accomodating, and what's your rush, really? Food is very nice, drinks spectacular. And the ambiance is just so wonderful. Cozy, slightly subterranean yet open to the street, brick, warm yet sparkly, purposefully a little ragged but in a way that makes you want to settle in. Will return. Will bring good friends and people who I'd like to be good friends.
