Decor makes you feel like you are
in Paris. The outside dining is very nice at night, and the inside has a romantic feel to it. Food was so-so. My wife ordered the monk fish, and it was tough and chewy. We had to send it back. I ordered the steak Poivre, and that was good. Great place for a nice date night. Place is too quiet and small for children."

The owner only greeted and spoke
to those people he knew or were regulars. When sitting there and viewing this, and he speaks to everyone around your table, and not you, it is very hard to imagine returning to this restaurant and becoming a regular!!!"

Very generous portions and well
presented. I had TWO escargot in each hole! Monkfish was delicious. Vegetables were very fresh."

Great little French bistro away
from all of the NYC activity. Loved dining with the neighborhood locals. Food and service were excellent and would highly recommend this on your next trip to the City."

This hidden gem is on the eastern
edge of Sutton Place/Midtown East. I've walked past this restaurant several times, and loved the way the scent of the food smelled. The outdoor dining is very cozy and romantic. The food was a great value and super delicious. Since the restaurant is on 1st Ave, I feel like there is not much foot traffic, but it's definitely a quality restaurant with some great traditional French cuisine and a great seasonal menu. Highly recommended for a nice, romantic dinner for two. "

The mirrors in the restaurant
create an optical illusion from the outside and make the restaurant look smaller. However there is a welcoming surprise once you discover that there is more seating. The service was excellent, delicious food, but my omelet was much smaller than the ordinary brunch portion. Overall, I gave a five, but I did leave wanting a bit more food. Perhaps I will try again for dinner."

Delux Amis feels like a real
French bistro. Wonderful service that is attentive but not rushed. Excellent food. Moderately priced wine list. It is small do reservations are a good idea. "

A very good neighborhood place.
French bistro cooking, perfectly prepared. Service pleasant and attentitive. Seems to cater to neighborhood diners not tourists or high end crowd."

This was our second time dining at
Deux Amis and once again, we were transported to old world Paris with both atmosphere and food. The escargot were wonderful with just the right blend of garlic, parsley, and butter/oil. The cassoulet was the best we have had - subtle flavoring to complement the perfectly cooked meats and beans. "
Dined on 4/25/2014
As always- perfect dinner. Service
the best. Something for everyone on the menu. Delightful!"

Two friends and I enjoyed brunch
Deux Amis Easter Sunday. The food was very enjoyable, the service friendly and prompt. We weren't rushed out and had time to relax after eating. The wine was especially good."

Three of us enjoyed the chance to
eat at Deux Amis. The menu was varied. The Appetizers were delicious - the soup was very nice and the crab cakes were a real treat. Two of us enjoyed the lamb, although the tomato sauce hid some of the taste of the lamb. The other entree was beef and the tomato sauce was an interesting change. Our waitress was very attentive and pleasant. "

I always enjoy eating at Deux
Amis. The food is delicious and the wait staff is efficient and pleasant. Best if you have a reservation as the restaurant has a following and it can be hard to get a table. You can eat at the bar and they do a nice bar business. The decor of the restaurant makes you feel you are in a small cafe in Paris."

My husband and I live around the
block from Deux Amis and simply love this restaurant. The food is good and fresh, the service is excellent and the prices are reasonable. I love their onion tarte, and the beet salad, which has a piece of fried goat cheese on top. The wine list is pretty good, but they usually have a good selection of wine by the glass. If you live around 51st and 1st street, you must try this place, but even if you don't live nearby, I would suggest trying this restaurant, you will not be disappointed that you did."

a cut above usual bistro fare, not
quite stratospheric as some. reliable, Mediterranean influences abound, though traditional coq au vine is available as well."

I live in the neighborhood and
have walked past this inviting restaurant numerous time so I decided to treat myself to dinner. I was dining alone, which often is awkward. The staff was very welcoming and attentive without being overbearing. The menu had a good assortment without being overly complex. The food was well prepared and delicious. The service was excellent. I now regret waiting so long to visit and will definitely go back!!"

We had a very pleasant late-night
Sunday birthday dinner with three 6-year old and younger girls. The service was excellent, fast, and responsive and the food was perfectly prepared. Kids had a great time as did the adults. Definitely recommend. Recommend the cheese plate. Bucky burger was also great for the kids."

Always a pleasure spending time at
this fun restaurant. Very reliable with delicious food and pleasant, efficient service. I always look forward to a meal there."

Small neighborhood place, not the
hot, trendy and noisy one. Service is very good, food unequal. the traditional French fare is good, not exceptional, but the couscous while large portion is bland and lacks spices"
Dined on 3/1/2014
Deux Amis offers a varied
selection of meat, chicken and seafood dishes prepared a la Francais. I have eaten here at least seven times and always have enjoyed tasty dishes prepared to the diner's request. I particularly like their melt in your mouth short ribs. this is a reliable place that never disappoints."

The table we were given that was
right at entrance to their slightly raised dining area. We were told this was the only 3 top they had and they had reserved the others for parties of 4. However, in the entire 1.25 hours we were dining, no one showed up for any of those tables. The food average. Salmon ordered medium came out like leather. Couldn't find the goat cheese that was to come with the onion tart. Considering only one in our party had 2 glasses of house wine and we did not have dessert, the bill was over $50 per person. Overpriced, average food. Having dined at many bistros in Paris, this has a nostalgic resemblance of such but that's about all. As first time diners at Deux Amis, it is safe to say, it was our last time as well."

Great food and the best service.
Wait staff and owner treat you like family. Who could ask for more!!"

Food is French and well prepared
and presented in a beautiful fashion. Service was outstanding. Menue is somewhat limited. Would like to see more creative French style entries offered. Moderately priced."

Deux Amis is our favorite
neighborhood French place. It is always full of neighborhood regulars and its food has been consistently good. Makes you feel like you are in a small friendly restaurant in a Paris neighborhood. The service was a bit slow When we dined, but it was.a Friday night full-house."

A wonderful little french bistro.
Simply the best service staff in NYC. Highly recommended."

Christmas Day and we didn't have a
plan...found this spot to be perfect with nice holiday cheer, intimate and antique atmosphere. We enjoyed our salads and main course. My cassoulet would have been much enhanced with a bread crumb crust baked on vs a stew ladled into a crock. The only other negative is the hot bread grows hard very quickly; I mean like a rock. Chocolate soufflé takes 20 mins but was excellent as was the house charafe burgundy."

Small, intimate room. Fantastic
service. Delicious French food. Escargots and salmon just delicious. Onion soup fantastic. Had the soup of the day butternut squash, so fantastic. All fish dishes cooked perfectly. Beef Bourguignon delicious. End the meal with the fabulous profiteroles!!! Did I say fantastic enough? That's because this restaurant is fantastic."

Like a small part of Paris in New
York neighborhood. Varied menu and specials of the day. Attentive service."

Deux Amis gives good value;
excellent food, brisk service, reasonable wine list and comfortable ambience. A great place for a couple or two to step away from the hustle of NYC but still know that you are there."

We ate at Deux Amis for the first
time on a Saturday night at 7:30. It is a small restaurant with one side of the restaurant with two tops that are very very close to one another. Luckily the diners were quite tolerable, none being overly loud. The other side of the restaurant had four tops that seemed to be spaced out better for more privacy. The escargot and special of the day mushroom soup were both very good. The warm bread and soft butter they put on each table was also good. The salmon and bronzini were both very good. The profiterole was very very good! The service was very good. We look forward to going back."
Dined on 11/30/2013
This small restaurant is a good
find for a casual meal. We had lunch on a Saturday when there was no crowd and we were not rushed. The service was very attentive and the omelettes and sandwiches were quite good for a reasonable price. I plan to return."

i've eaten here many times in the
past, however, our experience on Mon. was a bit disappointing. the waitress' were in such a rush to remove our food, we had barely finished. and while we were still eating. It felt like a hurried evening...due to a less than professional staff. PLS share this w. the restaurant mgmt. TY"

A friendly place, serving
excellent and comparatively simple food. Overly fancy it is not, but a number of main staples of French cuisine are on offer. Everything we tried was quite tasty. Definitely a place to recommend to others."

Ate here with a party of six. The
atmosphere is very upbeat and the staff is friendly and upbeat. Food was very good and was served hot and in timely manner. Recommended for those out to have a nice, lively evening with good food and friends!"
