Bistro La Promenade
Great Birthday!My wife took me here for my birthday and the food was so delicious. The seafood appetizer and clams on the half were so fresh! The fish entree melted in my mouth and the dessert was fabulous. Everything was so delicious, and our waitress, Aude, was very attentive!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant surpriseTHe appetizers are first rate classics. Well prepared and plated. French fries were my granddaughters favorite and mine too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice (a la Mediterranean) on 23rdWalked in and felt like we were on the Promenade in Nice!! I kept looking for the Mediterranean out the window! The menu was so authentically a bistro menu and everything we chose was perfectly prepared from the lamb chops to the roasted cod to the skate to the duck breast to the roasted chicken. Our server made us feel welcome and special. She knew the menu and the wine list backwards and forwards as she should. We chose a red from Languedoc that was rich and deep though not too expensive. Definitely a keeper!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood management of expecationsTwo of us dined on a Sat night and upon immediately entering the restaurant, we were told that ~4 of 8 entree items had sold out. The server told us the same thing as soon as we sat down and both managed our expectations well. It's difficult to come to a restaurant with your heart set on ordering something if it's not available, so that was well done.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious French Bistro foodDelicious French Bistro food in a beautiful contemporary setting. The cod was delicious! We've been before and will definitely return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPERFECT DINNER!!!Great dinner last night at Bistro LP. Love the new spring dishes and cocktails. Fantastic service as well.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a great experience atI had a great experience at Bistro La Promenade!
I typically don't like Ricotta, but the way Bistro La Promenade makes theirs is awesome. Definitely made me a fan.
The staff was kind, friendly, and knowledgeable without being over-bearing.
I will be back for sure, and I recommend it to anyone who hasn't been.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the food. I get steakEnjoyed the food. I get steak tartare. It was too loud. The first time we were there it was earlier in the evening. The music only made it worse.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely French dining. DuckLovely French dining. Duck was superb as was the gelato. Interesting appetizers. No disappointments here.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant....I readGreat restaurant....I read about it in NY Magazine's top restaurants and it did not disappoint.

The branzino was amazing ...the atmosphere great and I can't wait to go back to try other items on the menu.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat find!Great atmosphere. Very cool. Food was very good, especially for the price. Food and winelist were very reasonable.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceLoved the menu. Wish I could have tried more. I had the tuna crudo to start, which was incredible... and I order Tuna dishes most places I go. Also had the bronzio which i loved. I shared the ricotta and would recommend that. The service was quick and friendly and the scenery was cool; felt like the Riviera. Overall, I had a great time and I think my group did too. It seemed like a good spot to bring a date, so I think I'll try that next.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved the ambience. BeautifulI loved the ambience. Beautiful lighting, airy but cozy. European feel.

And great location near the high line!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great mealThis place never ceases to please! Came here with my wife the other night and loved every part of the meal. Food wise, everything was spot on, scallops and lamb were both perfectly cooked and delicious. The cheesecake dessert is also on of the best cheesecakes I have ever had. Service was also fantastic. Professional yet very warm and friendly. Our server also helped us pick out a great mid priced bottle of wine that paired perfectly with the meal. Can't wait to return!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI proposed to my partner thereI proposed to my partner there and the staff was very helpful and everything was perfect!!!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWent with friends for theWent with friends for the first time and loved it. Returned this weekend, and once again had a great meal, in a great environment with fantastic service. Everyone, from the moment you enter the front door, is involved in making sure you are comfortable and have everything you need.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the Great OnesOn two visits to Bistro La Promenade, I found this restaurant reminiscent of the great Manhattan restaurants at which I've eaten over the years. The escargot reminded me of the great appetizer I had at Lutece during the 1970's. I recall that a colleague dipped his bread in my snail butter repeatedly. The escargot here had relatively little snail butter, but it still made for good dipping. On the second visit, I was informed enough to order the short ribs, THE dish to have on a Saturday night. It was spectacular. The dessert, a very chocolaty cake with vanilla ice cream was heavenly. My only problems were the noise and the crowdedness. I can't wait to have a quiet lunch there on a weekday.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant if not outstandingNice place: not too big and tables adequately spaced so that it didn't feel crowded. Our waiter was a pro--not a college kid looking to make ends meet. He knew exactly how to take care of us without being obtrusive. The risotto and cod were both excellent, as was the whipped ricotta appetizer. The wine list is a little spare, but enough choices to suit any palette. Overall, a pleasant if not outstanding experience.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been here twice, willHave been here twice, will return. Whoever is behind the stove has a particular way with fish, which was perfectly cooked every time.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful neighborhood find.Wonderful neighborhood find. Can't believe we didn't know about this place. The mixologist has some wonderful drink ideas, executed beautifully. Our waitress knew her stuff and didn't steer us wrong. Really great meals. Butter lettuce salad was special and yummy. Skate fish dinner was amazing, as was the branzino. We love that all the fishes were fileted before serving. Maitre 'D Jonathan and manager Bruno were attentive and friendly Only one comment: on a Friday at 7pm, 2 of the 3 specialty appetizers were unavailable. But we'll be back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest French bistro in the cityIf you are craving French food and looking for a romantic date spot, please book this restaurant.
We ordered the "bouillabaisse" fish soup and the "tuna crudo" appetizers. Both were tasty. Also, it is recommended to get the creamy ricotta with crispy bread.
Then we decided to get the scallops with pesto puree, and the "confit de canard" (duck leg cooked for several hours). The duck meat came out really soft while the skin was nicely crisp.
Good wine selection too.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food; we had theFantastic food; we had the escargots, the mussels and the branzino - all cooked to perfection.

The almond crusted french toast was delicious and the service was great.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood bistro with moreMy partner and I go quite often, either for Sunday brunch or dinner. The setting is pretty with mid century light fixtures and a pleasing color scheme that makes La Promenade a notch above your typical french bistro. The food is always good. Sunday brunch has live entertainment, which is festive but can be loud. Booths are better than tables if you want some privacy.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite neighboorhoodMy favorite neighboorhood "go to" bistro.
