A word from Bagatelle- NY
Hailing from France, Brand Essence owners Aymeric Clemente and Remi Laba teamed up in February 2008 to create a restaurant that is wholly French Mediterranean in atmosphere and cuisine. The ambiance is reminiscent of a bustling Parisian bistro, with classic decor and architecture paired with chic and bold artwork., lively music, and a relaxed yet sexy vibe, making you feel as if you've escaped to Europe if only for a day.Continued

  • "The food didn't deliver sadly, well below standards but the fun atmosphere saved the evening."

  • "Good for happy hours and late night bar hopping. This place is definitely not for food goer or someone expecting to experience good dining. If you are planning to spend on their menu price, suggest go elsewhere then return for the bar."

  • "The steak was overcooked although we had asked for medium rare. The duck was acceptable but not great. The artichoke salad was excellent. The beignet dessert was exceptional. Tuna tartar and tarte tatain were adequate but not memorable."

  • "Great food, great service and great atmosphere!!! I had the foie frais sliders for appetizers, which were to die for! The special was the sole au beurre w/ truffle potatoe purée. Finally, I had an amazing Ile Flottante for desert...probably one of the best dinners I've had in many years!"

  • "I know Bagatelle NYC for a long time now before they moved to the new location and became the hot spot of the meat packing district. Jeremy at the bar is great.Go early and park yourself there as you wait for your table....Do not expect the hostess to come get you when your table is ready as that is never going to happen. So if you entrust Jeremy with your drinks, remember to get up and go and find out where you stand in life with the hostess desk. Electric scene, be ready to get up and dance at the table. Good service and good food. Always dependable if you just want to get lost in the crowd and have a good time. Always have a reservation or eat somewhere else and come in here for the electric atmosphere. It's unsurpassed. "

  • "Had a wonderful meal with coworkers here. Sat in a window table opened up to the street. Was a great time and very good food. "

  • "We had a reservation for 10 people at 10:15 and we were seated at 12:30! And the hostess and the manager, instead of being apologetic, they were full of attitude, extremely rude, and lacked manners and professionalism. They were even sarcastic to us when we mentioned that they should have at least apologized for the wait. Bagatelle used to be one of our favorite spots in NY but we are never going back. Such a huge disappointment. We have never encountered such a rude attitude in a restaurant."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Staff managing reservations arrogant. Noise level too high: I'm all for ambience and St Tropez-like atmosphere, but when the very seats one's in are vibrating violently to ridiculous bass, it's just too much. Also, don't order steak like T-Bone as you won't be able to see enough to cut away the fatty parts. All in all, not enough attention to detail."

  • "Good food, good service and great ambience. You can start by having a dinner and dancing without going anywhere else "

  • "Went here on a quiet monday night. Love this part of the city and the restaurant has a great setting for a meal and people-watching. Service was surprisingly slow and inaccurate for what was a very quiet night. Waiter was nice but got my wife's order wrong. They took care of it immediately and showed no hesitation or annoyance so they get points for that. Food was great. Calamari appetizer and the prawn dish for myself and the salmon tartare and scallops for my wife. Very good - nicely prepared, perfectly cooked. No complaints and would certainly go again!"

  • "It was my birthday and it was a bad one.Despite my early reservation, we have been seated only 1 hour!! later, as soon as we sat, the server announced that the kitchen is closing and we need to hurry up with our order. Throughout the night my husband has been asked at least 5 times!! by different people (server, manager, another server) to order $1200 bottle of champagne with "special" service from a "clown" in skimpy underwear. These people literally have dollar signs on their faces, that's the only thing they care about. After 12am this upscale restaurant turned into a fun house where every "lady" feels like she MUST jump on a table and shake it hard. Will I go again? yes, when I feel like I need to waste a lot of money on a messy party.."

  • "Beautiful people, ambiance... Impeccable service and most importantly amazing cuisine..."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "Food was actually good but when I ordered a second bottle of wine I was told that there was another reservation at 10.30 and I would have to leave. This had never happened to me before anywhere. Why would I go back to a place that asks me to move even if I am consuming? Terrible experience."

  • "Open table was suppose to give me 1,000 dining points for my 7 PM reservation. NEVER RECIEVED THE POINTS from that night. Can you please fix this??"

  • "horrible service, rude staff, the food was good but the atmosphere ruined it."
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "Bagatelle has a lot going for it, cool location, traditional decor spiced up with not so traditional art, the food is well prepared, and the wine list, although limited, offers great choices, and the service is attentive. The only downer, and this tends to apply to so many restaurants, is why do hostesses feel compelled to try and seat a couple who clearly are out on a romantic dinner date in the rows of two seater tables that are as intimate as a locker room shower."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "I love this area of the city. My sister and I love the city this time of year and Bagatelle did not disappoint. The food was outstanding. I highly recommend the gnocci as an appetizer. The risotto I had with dinner was delicious. The staff was very attentive. There were a bunch of xmas dinners going on and the crowd was great. If I did not have after dinner plans I would have definitely stayed for some extra drinks. I cannot wait to go back."

  • "Bagatelle had been recommended by a few so we decided to try it out for a late dinner upon our arrival in NY. The restaurant was very busy but our table was waiting for us and although you better reserve ahead of time if your not a regular they quickly made us feel at home. Started with Truffle pizza which was great and then had the oysters and rack of lamb. We had such a nice time we booked for their famous weekend brunch. FYI, I have never experienced anything like it before!!! Had an amazing but you better let the kids at home and be ready to order a few bottles of Champagne and Vodka...by 4 pm, the place could have competed with some of the best clubs in South Beach"

  • "Very good restaurant and food. Unfortunately, the day we visited the restaurant it was for lunch on Friday and although very close to the Highline , Chelsea Market and other sites, the place was almost empty. Might be a great place over weekend and evenings as well as brunch on Sunday. Service was excellent and hope to be able to go back one day."

  • "A massive waterbug fell onto our booths from the ceiling above inches from my head. The wait staff and management was incredible apologetic and accomodating but it still ruined the dinner."
    Dined on 10/13/2013
  • "I booked the table from England for a friends birthday. I attended with 2 friends. The venue is quiet but has a good ambience. Smart dress. Meal and wine was expensive but we really enjoyed it. I had scallops but too many on the plate and would have preferred more mash potato or French fries (chips). The wine was very nice (pouilly fuisse). The waiter was very attentive. Would recommend."

  • "We dinned at Bagatelle on Sunday and we were surprised by the fact that there were a significant amount of dinners. Ambience was great, I loved the music and the food. Nevertheless, I think that service has to improve. They were not only slow but they did not have the minimal intention to help. I asked for a steak and 2 min later I wanted to change the side dish (purée instead of fried potatoes). They told me that it was not possible even though it took them another 20min to bring my main course. At the end, I asked for a tea that never came. I think Bagatelle is a very nice option if you don't mind the service."

  • "During fashion Week most popular rstaurants are hopping. This one is famous for the Saturday brunch party but was not busy at all from 9:00 to 11:00. Surprising. The food was good though and the place was nice. needed a little more fun going on that night though. I would however go back."
    Dined on 9/11/2013
  • "I've been here several times and it never disappoints. the food is amazing, the people are intriguing and it's always a fun night out, especially with a big groups. If you're looking for a quiet dinner, this is not the place as it tends to get a bit noisy but if you're looking for a New York experience, this is it!"

  • "Nice decor, poor service, actually we didn't get it, we got served by 4 different guys, we felt like there was no personal service. Very loud music, loud crowd! We got a table next to a group table (we were three), the guys and girls next to us were dancing on the chairs running around, no one asked them to get down or to keep it down! The bill!!! Very high! Not worth it at all! Oh and the music... GET A DJ, cause it was poor quality! songs cut in half... to me it's should be a bar!"

  • "Distracted waiter, not great value overall, strange, stiff atmosphere for a meatpacking district restaurant. and the air conditioner vent kept dripping on me and the waiter wasn't that attentive to wiping the moisture off the air conditioner's vent."

  • "Bagatelle offers you the opportunity to choose your adventure--come early for a leisurely brunch chock full of French comfort food, come a bit later for a day party that I'm hearing is not to be missed. Great food, a charming location, and exceptional service makes it easy to part with those hard-earned dollars (nothing rounds out a lovely brunch like attentive bottle service, right?!) . I look forward to returning soon."
    Dined on 8/3/2013
  • "Eating at Bagatelle is always a double edged sword. We love the food, the service is attentive but they just can't help themselves when it comes to blatantly almost forcing you to "clear the table" for the next sitting. This past Saturday August 10th was probably the worst ever example, we can usually brush it off but "Carlos" was in rare form this time, he was relentless. Anyway, it's worth going but know what you're getting into..."

  • "Our waiter pretty much ignored us leaving the manager and busboy to take care of our drinks and food. The sea bass was undercooked and inedible. My husband enjoyed his chicken and the appetizer of calamari was excellent."
