    We were looking for a suitable restaurant to bring relatives from out of town and wanted a place with a variety of dining options and not too noisy, since conversation would be a priority. Bistro Le Steak fit the bill. We were a party of 6 and all chose different entrees and desserts. Everyone was delighted with their choice. The noise level and general ambiance were very conducive to pleasant conversation and overall comfort. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable which added to our experience. I look forward to our next visit to Bistro Le Steak and trying new selections from the menu.

    Excellent food. Much better than average service. We felt like we were the youngest people there (late 20's, early 40's), but our food was very good and we had a great time. The waitstaff was excellent.

    Arrived promptly for our resv . Seated right away but then ignored for 10--12 minutes. Food was good but my steak was not flavorful,probably due to poor seasoning. We had a good experience New years Eve, and my wife liked her dish ,so we'll be back. Servers.. just make sure to pay attention to your guests. Jpat ...east 70's

    Good for steak and salad. Stay away from anything that requires a true chef . The special lobster dish I foolishly ordered was one of the worst meals I have ever had.

    A basic neighborhood joint that can rely on a regular crowd to make it. Food was ok but over-sauced, under-seasoned and very blah. Service was a bit apathetic at best. My 87 year-old father loves it - I wouldn't go back.

    After 5 or 6 visits in the past three years, either BLS has been steadily going downhill or it just wasn't that good to start with. Some dishes are okay (the steak based things are pretty good, except for the steak tartare, which is overseasoned; the fat-free mashed potatoes are very good; the snails are decent) but the majority are mediocre to bad (anything involving chicken and most of the fish and seafood will be cooked dry). The service seems to have two speeds - overwhelmed and rushed. On the bright side, it's not overpriced.

    My boyfriend and I love Le Steak. Whenever we have family visiting we always go for dinner. It's a more quiet place where you can have a nice conversation. Most of the tables are positioned on the outer perimeter of the restaurant so you have a window view. The food is always good and reliable along with the service. During the weekend, it's a great place to stop off for a drink at the bar, providing a comfortable scene and drawing in a nice, sophisticated crowd now and then. I should also mention that this is one of Mayor Bloomberg's favorite spots, I've seen him there twice, must be good!

    The highlight of our meal were the pomme frites - if you're entree does not come with them you must order them as a side dish. They are, by far, the best french fries on the upper east side. The wild salmon was also very good, not overcooked or swimming in sauce. The restaurant offers excellent value for a decent mid-week, neighborhood meal.

  • Not Bad- But Not Worth the Money
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/12/2012
    We hadn't been back at Bistro Le Steak and unfortunately, I don't think time has been its friend. Basically, this is a neighborhood place, with reasonably good food at prices that are way overpriced. The crabcake was nice and the onion soup was good, but the rib eye for almost $30 just wasn't the best caliber. The waitress hovered around constantly asking if we were done, or needed anything-- it almost felt like they were trying to get us out quickly-- but there were other tables open. It's not a bad place-- I just don't think it's worth it.
