Diner Reviews
  • "Our table reserved for 9:30pm wasn't ready; we were told it would be ten minutes, but it was more like an hour. When we ordered a bottle of Sancerre white wine, it came room temperature. The waitress took it back; the second bottle was warm, too, as were the glasses that came for water. When the food came, the order was completely mixed up; some never arrived. We gave up and left. Perhaps all this could be blamed on restaurant week; the place was bustling, overfilled with people who just didn't leave."

  • "Food was outstanding from appetizer to entree to dessert. Classy and attentive wait staff. Only negative is extremely loud -- difficult to converse with your dinner partner."

  • "Food and service are both still very good at Indochine. The staff are both chic and hard-working and could not be more helpful. A very enjoyable and attractive restaurant and we will be back more often."

  • "Dined here during restaurant week after hearing it was a NY hot spot. The food was average so glad we didn't pay full price but the service is what really lacks in this place, pretty much the only thing our server said to us the whole evening was "are you ready to order", took them forever to top up water and our drinks only arrived just after our food was dropped. The girl at the host stand had an air of "greatness" about her and there were 4 tables of 2 sat before us when we arrived (complete) before all of them. When leaving no acknowledgment of goodbye until I said goodbye to them as they were too busy chatting to themselves."

  • "My wife and I were looking forward to a wonderful Vietnamese-French fusion meal and found none on the Restaurant Week menu nor was there a real value for that week. Dishes were uninteresting, very small portions with very noisy ambiance and moderately competent staff. Will not visit again."

  • "I had a great experience having dinner here before a show at the Public Theater. Everyone from the host to the bartender to the waitress were very pleasant. The atmosphere there is elegant but not stuffy in the least. They have some good options for vegetarians/vegans."

  • "Had the asian ravioli & spring roll appetizers and the salmon for main course. All fresh and perfectly prepared -- very flavorful but not unnecessarily complicated. Went on a whim because it was close to the theater -- will be back!"

  • "I had not been to Indochine for a long time and my husband had never been there . The food was very good but we were annoyed by the attitude of the waiters . It was early because we had tickets for the theatre across the street and the restaurant was far from full . We were given a not so good table and the service was mechanical , fast , no smile and a I don't really care about you attitude . We were given the check without asking for it minutes after finishing our dessert . As we were leaving , a lot of younger , high heeled people were arriving . We are over 60 and probably didn't fit the type of clientele they want ... Disappointing . My husband won't go back . Me ? I like the spring rolls."

  • "Food was good for adults - not great for fussy kids. Doesn't have anything really that's "typical" chinese/japanese that kids would choose from. Service and waitstaff were excellent and tried to help us find something to please everyone. Would definitely go back - maybe with all adults."

  • "I booked a table for 2 last minute for me and a friend visiting NYC. Upon arrival we were greeted by the host in a particularly unfriendly manner. Our waitress was not much better - fairly unfriendly. Food was good but service very disappointing. "

  • "We flew in from Sweden for the day and everything from the greeting when we came to the off-we-go-drink was amazing! So happy with the treatment and service we got. The food was exquisite and drinks the best. We will definitely come back again. It felt personal but still we had our privacy. The staff noticed us and took care of us."

  • "Great food, nice ambience. Had the spicy beef salad (good, nothing special), and the Chilean Sea Bass (divine!!), with a lychee saketini (also delicious)."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The food is outstanding, the decor stunning, the noise level is so loud that at a small size table for four, conversation was impossible. In fact, the noice level was so high that our server could not quite hear what we ordered and 2 out of 4 meals came out completely wrong, add to that the drink orders also came out wrong because the server had not heard quite what we said, and it's not because he was hard of hearing. We happened to be seated in the middle of the dining room, tables so close that one of the guests got bumped into constantly as servers were squeezing by. Perhaps the tables along the walls are quieter. "

  • "Indochine is a classic, my dear. Indochine Martini with pineapple & ginger-infused vodka, Summer Rolls with Shrimp were fresh and peanut sauce gave it a kick; my favorite Amok Cambodgien was buttery and full of coconut-milky herby goodness. You can't order a meal at Indochine without the Sticky Rice. And no, you can't find the recipe online - I've searched! The earthy richness of it leaves me craving more. I know there is Chinese sausage, green onions and dried shrimp… We finished off dinner with iced Vietnamese coffees. Not really traditional, but tasty nonetheless. The scene is still so vibrant. I'm happy to say that Indochine is still a "hot spot" in NYC, and a classic with its palm leaf motifs on the walls and dimmed lighting..."

  • "Not having been to Indochine before we had a perfect time from the beginning to the end of the evening. Arriving early due to the pending thunderstorms we were greeted with a warm welcome and a perfect drink at the bar. When we were seated they were more than happy to move us away from our windy a/c spot. The food was perfectly timed and delicious."

  • "We chose Indochine for two reasons. One, because there are so many meatless and fish choices on the menu. Second, because it's one of three restaurants mentioned in American Psycho that are still in operation. It did not disappoint. The wait staff was gorgeous and attended to our every need. Food came promptly and was hot. My husband ordered the bean curd entree and the sauteed rice with shrimp. The Asian flavor of the bean curd was fantastic. The rice was the low point of the meal. It was a bit too fishy. However, I had the vegetarian stew in a curry broth and it was SUPERB. I had a side of jasmine rice and dipped the rice in the broth and it was heavenly. The cocktails are pricey, but stiff. We would love to go again!"

  • "I went to Indochine with friends last night. Restaurant was way too loud - as in hard to maintain a conversation without screaming -; food was very average - overall blend and poorly executed, sole tasted old -, and extremely pricey for what it is; service was also disappointing. Would definitely NOT come back or recommend it to anyone."

  • "Worth coming if you're not in a rush as the food is fantastic, but--at least on the night we were there--not not enough waitstaff. Simple dinner for 4 was 2 1/2 hours of trying to get someone's attention. We will go back for long, leisurely yet delicious dinner. "

  • "Service sloppy, appalling actually, kind of like the service you are getting when you are not getting service. Food ok, not remarkable, not helped that main (bouillabaisse) luke warm by the time it got to our table. Noise level irritating, at least. Honestly there were so many things that were displeasing , I don't have the strength to go on, I want to put this hugely dissapointing outing behind me. Then they tried to give us someone else's coat from the coat room when we were leaving , but failed to give us our bag, which we had to help the non caring bag check girl to find. This was one of the most disappointing dinners I have had in a while! On so many levels..Do not recommend and not EVER going back."

  • "We had a lovely experience as a group of friends and family for early Saturday dinner before our show at the Public Theater. The service was prompt and attentive. The place is just lovely. Our mixed drinks were delicious; the prixe fixe dinner allowed us to explore a range of dishes and everyone enjoyed what they had. We will surely be back. Everyone raved about it the day after. Always a good sign!"
