Diner Reviews
  • "This is a nice little restaurant that serves decent french food. It's not the most exciting menu in the world but the flavors are there. It is what you would expect."

  • "Entrees of Grilled Sea Bass and Rack of baby lamb. Both were good. Lamb could have been more flavorful and fish was a bit overcooked; the accompanying vegetables were excellent. Peach Napoleon for dessert would have been better with fresh peaches were are now in season. Wine by the glass was decent. Very good expresso."

  • "Great food and portions. Also, lovely contemporary interior-- the lounge area (which seemed to connect to a hotel) looked like it was out of an art museum."

  • "We tried this place for dinner and had a good time. The decor is simple,but nice. However,what makes a restaurant is food. And it was really good. Duck confit was delicious,so as filet mignon. Good place for a casual dinner."

  • "Interesting Foie Gras with pear marmelade. Sauce for veal is especially full flavoured. Steak and frites good too. Red wine Cotes Du Rhone is ok."

  • "Really enjoyed our meal. The unlimited drinks were delicious and not watered down (thank you!) and the food was delightful. We highly recommend this restaurant for Sunday Brunch!"

  • "A friend and I had a pulsd deal for bottomless brunch. $29 for two people for an entree and unlimited mimosas, bellinis, and/o bloody marys. Sounds like a good deal, but it wasn't. The brunch entrees are cheap (most around or even under $10), so the deal isn't economical. The entrees don't come with sides, which cost extra. The bigger brunch items are considered specials and require an additional $6. And the waiters don't keep the drinks coming. You have to beg them to come back. I actually felt looked down upon for using a deal. That's bad customer service, because honestly, the location is so beautiful that I would have come back without the deal, if they'd just given good service. Brunch food was nothing to write home about."

  • "We had the roast chicken and the Veal entrees. Veal was perfect, sauce perfect. Rice and veggies perfect. Chicken, as reviewed by my wife the chef(diploma'd) was best she had outside of her kitchen"

  • "The restaurant is a café style. I love their great service and ambience. I think it's a kind of hot spot right now. It's worthy to visit once."

  • "Came for brunch at about noon on a gorgeous Sunday. We shared the eggs benedict with lox (I'm not a big fan of lox so I can't comment) and a special - eggs with pork belly which was pretty good if you trim around the fat inherent in pork belly. Both were served with the best potatoes, a tasty small salad in the plate. More importantly, the mimosas and bellini's were plentiful and had generous amounts of booze. I would go back. Oh, and the place is really cool to look at."

  • "Great Service - Did not rush us even though I had to wait a half an hour for the additional member of my party. Good food and nice preparation. Recommended,"

  • "Our experience was great. Everything that we ordered was soo good. We ordered the onion soup (very hot, soo flavorful, cheese was just right), asparagus soup (very unique, very nice), tuna tartare (very generous portion), salade d'endives (very refreshing, altho the blue cheese was a little too overpowering for my taste), cantine burger (burger done just right) and had a pink natural fresh squeezed drink (no extra sugar added, I could tell the freshness of the ingredients). Overall it was a but pricey, but pretty healthy, didn't feel stuffed coming out even tho we ordered lots of food for two. Must go back!"

  • "We were the only people in the restaurant, yet service was very slow. We had a cracked water glass, a dirty spoon, and tea that had been sitting around for much too long. The food was average. I will not be returning."

  • "We went for bruch last sunday and we had a reallynice time with mi wife. We used a pulsd coupon, which was a great deal, but most of all was the professionalism, chaarisma and care of our waitress. She did an outstanding job.. deffenitly we will come back "

  • "It was superb! The fish dinner, (which was recommended by our waitress) was one of the best I have ever had in my life! The salad, the dessert and the wine were also magnifique! And, our waitress, very attentive, knowledgeable about the menu and friendly. Loved this restaurant!"

  • "Drinks were fine, food was a notch above ordinary, setting was delightful. Cool barkeep and charming French bus boy. Wait person was kind and helpful but so American it makes you wanna salute. She seemed to be in the wrong bistro. Great Groupon place, otherwise kinda average."

  • "We had a reservation but they did not have our table for seven set up when we arrived. The service was just okay as was the food. With all the good restaurants in NYC would not go back. "

  • "Unfortunately I ordered the pork belly and it was virtually all fat."

  • "It's located in the lobby of the hotel but the scene and ambience is still pretty cool. Candle-lit with good background music thats loud enough to keep out other parties. Food was really good. Asparagus soup was delicious, white and green varieties together. Veal was great. Service was amazing. Waiter was really helpful, water was brought by carafe; wine glass was always kept full."

  • "I saw the Pulsd deal for $29 for two entrees and a bottle of wine. I went with my boyfriend, and we noted first off that the place, lit up with tiny candles, seemed like a romantic oasis in its rather nondescript surroundings - a pleasant surprise, as the website photos taken in daytime are a little too modern-minimalistic. The place definitely picks up ambiance at night. The food is excellent, especially at that price. We had one steak and one loup de mer (bass), which looked like a steak, and you just can't go wrong with a bottle of Cote du Rhone! On our own, we ordered a lemon cheesecake for dessert and got a very generous portion of a delicious dessert! The service, too, was excellent. We definitely want to come back."

  • "Really enjoyed my time at this place! Came here for Mother's Day brunch and had the most amazing crab cake Benedict ever! Everyone was super inviting and extremely helpful. Our personal waiter wasn't so on top of things but everyone else filled in where he left off!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Went for Mother's Day brunch, food was excellent again. Service wasn't as good as the first time I went, it looked like they may have been understaffed. Still, a very nice time and I intend to go back. The food is amazing, the prices range from usual Manhattan prices to very reasonable."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Food was great - clean French flavors, easy pick when shopping in Soho or wandering around Nolita. The only thing is that the service is subpar - I was disappointed and surprised that the "rude NYC waitress" still exists - makes the place feel dated and I will not be coming back! The food is not memorable enough to make me come back. Too many good, friendly restaurants in NYC. "

  • "I'm delighted to say we found a true gem. We brunched there on Mother's Day, and was very impressed with the food and service. "

  • "Special of Grilled Sea Bass with fiddlehead ferns, fava beans, mushrooms & grape tomatoes was first rate. Escalope of Veal good-sauce a bit too salty. White chocolate mousse was excellent as well as good expresso."

  • "The spot was great, as it was slightly below street level but had huge windows all around that made for great people watching. They all dressed 80's and played 80's music which was fun. The food was very good, but they only gave 1 egg with their brunch special of the day. I also enjoyed the unlimited mimosas, and the fact that they were well made."

  • " We used the coupon to check this place out. Everything was good, but entrees (three out of four) were to salty. No bread or snacks were given as most restaurants in ny/American do. Would go back, a bit expensive."

  • "I keep going to this place and have enjoyed my experience each time. Service is good and gracious. Modern and comfortable decor. Really good food and good reasonably priced wine list. I get the Steak Frites and have enjoyed it very much twice now. My sister and I liked it more than Balthazar's Steak Frites! No kidding. My friend liked the steak very much as well. This place is well located and has an interesting view, since it's got two walls of windows that are situated slightly below the lively street level scene of Kenmare Street. Oddly this makes it more theatrical and yet, at the same time, less hectic. Anyway - it's turning into a favorite of mine in the area."

  • "A sleek modern restaurant in the base of a hotel. There were a number of French staff to help with the authenticity of the French experience, the all inclusive drinks were well made but I was disappointed that they wouldn't offer me a screwdriver rather than a bloody Mary, as all the components were covered by the drinks offered. The food was well made and I would go again."

  • "We had a Pulsd deal for dinner for two. It came with an entree for each person and a bottle of wine. It was perfect! Not sure if it was the weather (rainy) but we pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves! Our waitress was super kind and helpful. The food came out in a good amount of time and was pretty tasty. I had the steak frites and my mother had the branzino. The waitress was attentive and didn't rush us to finish our bottle of wine even though our food was done. Loved it!"
