    Sunday was my first time dining here and everyone's meal was delicious and service was just right! Had an early dinner inside with my husband, son and daughter-in-law.We all enjoyed the meal and ambiance - we were comfortable and we could talk. While I am happy to return, most entrees and individual glasses of wine were a little too pricey to go often or with my whole family (7 people).

    I took a friend there for a birthday lunch. The place was mostly empty. The seven other diners were 70+ and we are just under 50. The food was good and the price was great ($25 = 3 course lunch special including hot beverage). The wait staff was terrible. With so many other places to eat, chances are neither of us would go back.

    I eat at BLS about 3 times a year for the past couple of years. Often enough that the staff remembers me, not often enough to be a regular. Each time I enjoy the service, the food, the ambiance, and the most reasonable prices for steaks in NYC that I have found.

    I went on a date here for French Restaurant week, and the special of the evening was listed as, "Cheese Ravioli and a glass of Champagne." I was hesitant, as this was a french restaurant, but I made a reservation. When we arrived, everyone was very kind. While I requested seating in their semi-outdoor space, the host gave us a table inside, something that I looked over as it was warm out anyway. We ordered the garlic bread with gorgonzola fondue, and it was amazing. The cheese ravioli was even better! I was highly impressed with Bistro Le Steak.

    I thought the service was fantastic we ate outside. Now my date had the special which was the scallops and I had the Kobe Burger. We ordered the crab cake as an appetizer. That was overpriced $14.95 for just one. Granted it was good. Her special at $28 to me was overpriced too. Granted the service was great. My burger was good.

    Love this place while nice enough to treat the in-laws to dinner it's also got a neighborhood vibe with food to satisfy most tastes. And it's all really good, my go to is the pear arugula salad and my boyfriend's garlic bread and penne were both great, the only thing I wasn't blown away with was the crabcake

    to start, I wasn't happy being put that such a small table after requesting a larger table when the place was obviously empty. Then to see other people arrive after me with no reservations being afforded the largest tables even though they were alone. The ribeye steak about I had was average at best. for the price that they charged I could have went to Pathmark and got a better cut of meat.the waitress was attentive and very polite. I would not recommend this restaurant to a friend.

    We dined here on Mother's Day. Had a nice table for 4 in the enclosed café looking out on Second Ave. Service was welcoming and attentive. We all had different appetizers, entrees and desserts. We agreed that they were all delicious and plentiful. Nice size glass of wine for the price. Our server could not have been more gracious. Since it was Mother's Day, a pleasant touch was receiving a rose at the end of our meal. We look forward to dining here again.

    BeteraVIP
    Dined on 4/19/2014
    We were hoping for a great meal when we entered Bistro Le Steak. We were deeply disappointed. My onion soup was watery, not very hot and the cheese sat like a lump in the middle of the bowl--not nearly browned enough. My trout was swimming in butter and didn't taste very fresh--I left most of it. Finally the dessert (included in the prix-fixe) was one small scoop of vanilla ice cream, also tasteless. Decaf coffee had a strange taste and I left it all after one sip. My partner's steak was "good enough" and I did see many burgers on plates as we entered, so maybe those would be better choices. I had the sense of a place past its prime, or one coasting on a regular clientele content with mediocre food. We would not return.

    Bistro Le Steak serves a nice steak that is between the high end steakhouses and the budget steaks places around the city in price. The service is always friendly and attentive. The steaks are tasty, and the house steaksauce , and very similar salad dressing, are different from most places and counts as points this restaurants favor. They allow you to bring your own wine, for a $25 corkage fee. I would prefer either better wine glasses or a $20 charge, but that is a minor detail, that doesn't deter me from returning here about once a month. They also do a very good job of mixing classic cocktails at their bar (Martinis, Manhattans, Old Fashions and their variations).

    Steaks were very good though mine was undercooked (yet charred on the outside). Decided not to ask for it to be cooked more because I was worried it would take too long and get more charred. Meat was flavorful, as good as any steak house I've been to. Service was efficient, non intrusive, and friendly. Grilled vegetable salad was good, not oily. Lemon tart and chocolate mousse were easily shareable. Cote du Rhone was better than the merlot. We'll definitely go back.

    This restaurant was not great. We had the filet mignon au poive. The cut of meat was good quality but the au poive sauce left much to be desired. It was dark like a gravy and almost tasted like it had ketchup in it. It was one of the worst au poive sauces I've ever had. The waiter also didn't give us the specials and we didn't realize till after ordering when we heard the couple next to us hearing the specials.

    This is probably the sixth time I have eaten dinner at Bistro Le Steak in the past 12 months. I always enjoy my meal. Most times I get the same waiter, Armond, who does a great job taking care of my table. The food is tasty, and cooked the way I ask. The prices are reasonable. The service very good. Everyone in the restaurant is friendly. I will continue to go to this restaurant.

    Had a great table on the window. Nice ambience, and great staff. Both daughters had the rib eye and it was done perfectly - pan seared that gave it a great crust, perfectly done inside. One daughter said it was the best steak she ever ate. I had the escargot, which was perfect, tender, tasty, and I had the rack of lamb special that was cooked to perfection at medium rare. The caesar salad was also good, much better than most. All in all, a great experience and I'd go again.

    We live in the neighborhood, but recently stopped in for our first visit. We weren't disappointed. Nice, lively ambiance on a Friday early evening, and service was solid. My wife and I spit the house salad, which was fresh and nicel spiced with a light dressing. Spinach dip was ok, not memorable. I'm a sucker for good bread, and the sourdough loaf was delicious, fresh and chewy. Dor entrees, I had mussels and frites, and my wife had the seafood pasta. Both were excellent, and personally served by the chef. We topped ff the evening by sharing the chocolate mouse which was recommended by out waiter. Excellent choice! Smooth, creamy and decacantly rich. The bill was very reasonable, even with 4 glasses of wine. We will be back.

    I had not been here I many years but after my recent dinner here I will be back more often. The arugula,pear and goat cheese, and special salad with mesclun, strawberries, oranges and blue cheeses were excellent and not overdressed. My 10oz sirloin was cooked to my specifications-medium rare and charred on the outside. Juicy and tender. I usually go for "au poivre" sauce but tried their special "provencale" sauce, mustard based, and it was delicious. My friends both had the filet mignon and they were very pleased. I was I. The mood for steak, but the menu is so extensive and appealing that I would like to try one of their fish entrees. Decor is a hit outdated but does have a bistro feel. The waiter was outstanding.

    I had an early reservation (6pm) on New Years Eve. When I got there the restaurant was 1/4 full, by the middle of my meal the place was packed. NYE is a tough night for a restaurant and Bistro Le Steak came through like a champ! A great meal, with fast and friendly service, what more could I ask for.
