A word from Cafe Un Deux Trois
Cafe Un Deux Trois has been located in the heart of Times Square since 1977. We opened when the neighborhood was still very rough , and quickly became THE brasserie to stop for dinner and drinks before heading off to Studio 54 and Xenon to dance the night away.
We were and still are frequented by American and European theater and film actors, as well as politicians, directors, local New Yorkers and tourists from around the world. You will find many a Broadway cast and crew member hanging out after the show on any given night.

We recently had a facelift featuring enormous windows and a new color scheme.
The food while still classic bistro fare has expanded to include a variety of sandwiches, hamburgers and an extensive breakfast.
We have also added a selection of savory and sweet crepes to our dining choices.

    Cute name so we thought we would try it before the play. BOth had escargot which was less than satisfying with a mediocre sauce. My wife's steak was a poor quality meat which can't be fixed on the stove. My beef was also a lower quality. Even the cappuccinos didn't cut it. The bright spot was we did get out of there in plenty of time to make the show.

    We had dinner here ahead of the theater. They understand that you need to get out by 7:30 and they accomplish that with good fresh food prepared quickly, and a menu that has many choices that fit the bill. We both had crepes that were hot and fresh and delicious. The services is professional and friendly. Dinner here was the start to a great evening.

    Went with a group of 8 for a pre-theater lunch. Staff was friendly and efficient. Some ordered the fixed price lunch, which was a good value and flavorful. Those who had the onion soup said it was just fair. My Nicoise salad was excellent, with good tuna, fresh salad ingredients and dressing. I also had the escargot, which was delightfully garlicky.

    My friend and I ordered 2 breakfasts to share: crab cakes eggs Benedict and crepes. They were nice and made U.S. two different crepes in one order. They were good but small. The crab cakes were still cold in the middle and the eggs poached to hard. The decor was nice and the waitress accommodating!

    We went there with friends on Friday night for dinner before broadway show. Good that I reserved seats a day before, the restaurant was full. We were seated right in time, service was good and fast. But I was a ltl disappointed with the food. Appetizers that me and my husband had (escargot and pater plate) was not really good. The crepe with spinach, goat chease and mashrooms was good, but telapia fish main dish was nothing special. The chocolate mousse desert was delisiuos though! So for quick dinner before the show it was ok, but if you expect something special as I was looking for from French cafe, it was not.

    Dined here prior to the renovation - nicely done. Pre-theater dining meant crowds but the staff was prepared to make sure folks made their opening curtain. However, person after person was turned away - only reservations were sat at the earlier dining hour. Menu provided multiple choices - both pre-fix and ala carte items arrived quickly.

    First visited this restaurant a couple of years ago on a New York holiday and it was on the list of must re-visits when we came back this year. Very happy to find the food and the device were still up to the quality we had found previously. Very friendly helpful staff, without being intrusive. Every meal we have tried on the menu has been excellent. Will get some more visits in before we leave.

    I haven't dined here since the 80s. I was looking for a casual spot to being my young daughters after a Bdwy show&this place fit the bill in spades. It was bright with the friendliest matre'd & wait staff. The food was excellent. It was simple enough for my girls but flavorful& delicious for me. The Dijon salad dressing on the house salad was incredible (the waiter even got the ingredients from the chef for me, without me asking for it; I just commented on how good it was) and the Provençal tilapia was fresh&delicious. We enjoyed every minute of this dining experience! Dmitri (waiter)made the evening memorable as he was incredibly solicitous, so nice to my girls and to me&helpful. I highly recommend this place&can't wait to go back!

The crepes are still as yummy as ever -- and stuffed to the brim! Prices are still reasonable and the service was great. These folks really have it together. Will be back!

    I always enjoy Un Deux Trois as it is close to the theatre district and they don't expect you to have a 3 course meal like those on Restaurant Row. The food is always good and served quickly, but you aren't rushed either. The prices are good for that area. I always tell my friends about this restaurant for pre theatre or after.
