Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "En voyage à New York pour 10 jours, nous avions réservé une table à l'Indochine pour notre première soirée dans la "Big Apple"... Autant vous dire que ce fut notre plus belle soirée... 19h00. Nous arrivâmes peu avant pour profiter des magnifiques sièges de l'entrée. Un vin blanc parfait nous a été servi. Ensuite est venu le moment de rejoindre notre table. Placés de façon à avoir une imprenable vue sur le restaurant, nous nous assîmes, impatients de continuer cette soirée dans une ambiance cosy-friendly-chic propre à l'Indochine. Les mets furent délicieux, le service impeccable. L'Indochine reste un rendez-vous incontournable de NYC. Il faut s'y précipiter dès que possible !"

  • "Indochine is a gem. I first went there over 25 years ago, and its still one of my favorite restaurants in New York. The food is absolutely delicious, and it maintains its downtown chic ambience after all these years."

  • "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!"

  • "Good cocktails - especially the Indochien Martini. They have a cozy little lounge were you can enjoy your drink before dinner. The food was really nice as well. My favorite was the fresh salad roll as a starter. Delicious. I was there on a friday and think it's a great place to dine before you go out."

  • "Food was excellent. Still a great vibe. Service was lackluster at best - oftentimes felt that they forgot us. Hostesses were cold and unfriendly - by far the worst part of the evening. Someone should tell them that they aren't about to be discovered .... and if they are, the attitude won't help."

  • "Have been here two times before over the last three years and always been overwhelmed by the service and the great food. Not this time. A obviously stoned and not very helpful waiter made the food taste even worse than it should have. The food was ok but not more. Think the lack of good service and the fact that at least two of the staff where so obviously intoxicated gave us a bad Indochine experience."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed Indochine. The menu had a selection of interesting cocktails and the sea bass is one of their signature dishes that should not be missed!"

  • "We went to Indochine for Pre-theater dinner during Restaurant Week and were pleasantly surprised by the variety and exceptional quality of the Restaurant Week menu...This restaurant has held up very well over the years and is stil lone of the better Indochinese inspired restaurants in NYC...."

  • "I dined here this weekend with friends after Indochine had been recommended to us by another friend. Maybe the experience would have been better had we done the restaurant week option and sampled a greater variety of food, but even so I was disappointed by my experience. The decor was nice-clean and very well decorated, probably to distract from the food. We had a few things between us (duck, hanger steak, sticky rice, and spring rolls), and despite everything looking good on the plate, everything tasted a bit bland and was, overall, nothing to remember or rave about. I expected to overpay since it is Manhattan, but paying $25+/entree for food I could have made at home seemed unnecessary. Try Indochine if you want, but I won't be returning."

  • "Really enjoyed our dinner, amazing food as always! and great ambience. After all years it's still a really nice place to visit!! Love the interior and it's always with a stylish crowd, wish I love. However the staff need to shape up a little, even if it's a busy night they should be able to handle it better, specially the bar tenders were very slow even if the actual bar was not crowded (never got our cocktail before the dinner:( and the servant never came back to check if we needed anything else or check if everything was ok, this is the difference compared to dinning at top restaurants...the service never lacks ;) Anyway I would really recommend the place for it's amazing food and interior. xx"

  • "Food is great BUT The noise level is unbearable. do not hear the waiter ,nor the people at your table. If it is already so noisy, there is absolutely no need to add music to the cacophony..."

  • "We were a party of three who enjoy good food, good wine and conversation. We found all three at this pretty restaurant right across the street from the Public Theatres. Staff was attentive and mindful we had tickets to a play, food was very delicious and the wines by the glass more than the standard Californians, Best of all we were able to have conversation with each other throughout a lovely meal."

  • "went here and did the restaurant week menu - which had quite a few choices for each course compared to other restaurants. Got the spring rolls for app that were great and steamed catfish for the entree which was also good, but i felt was missing something. my boyfriend got the ravioli app and hen entree, both which were good. the desserts were also both okay..but i didn't leave dying to go back for anything i had. the place was definitely energetic and full for a tuesday night."

  • "The decor and hyper trendy vibe of this place would make it a fun group spot, complete with excellent people watching, I went a friend for restaurant week and found the noise level overwhelming. Coupled with very mediocre food, the whole experience was a bit underwhelming. I had been really excited to try Indochine, but overall was disappointed."

  • "Hits and misses. I was one person and though I had a reservation, they tried to sit me at the bar. I asked for a table and this seemed to be a problem for the hostess. Other people came and kindly took me to a table. One miss, one hit. I ordered the pre fix for restaurant week. I wasn't wild about the appetizer (spicy beef salad--huge and not spicy or flavorful, I had to ask for salt). Miss. Catfish--delicious. Hit. Great service. Hit. Waitress giving me a free glass of wine. Hit. Being double charged for my meal and having to wait a long time to get it resolved and then pay. Miss. My experience was colored by the fact that I had to use the bathroom but couldn't because I would have had to disturb two tables to get out of my cramped spot."

  • "Although we were more than half hour late for our reservation, the restaurant did not kick up a fuss, they were on full house, very busy yet were courteous and obliging , didn't rush us, no attitude. Although staff looked like they came right of the Fashion catwalks, they were genuinely nice, gave excellent recommendations, food was yumm, ambience buzzy and cool. Highly recommended."

  • "Overall-We enjoyed the food but the service--at least the evening we went--was horrendous. Yes, they were busy but for a nearly $200 meal I should not have had to hunt anyone down to fill my water glass or wait nearly 10 minutes for fresh utensils. Food and service-The summer roll had a nice, smoky flavor yet was a little too chewy, the grilled eggplant was fantastic. The Chilean sea bass and filet mignon were both perfect. We skipped dessert because by then we were frustrated with our waiter. He was "busy" fawning over the corner table w-four hipsters ordering tequila & cake as well as flirting with two NYU girls next us as I waved my empty water glass in the air. Worth a trip for the food but come for lunch or pre-theater."
