Diner Reviews
  • "I found this wonderful restaurant on the internet. It was perfect for dining before going to a show. Everyone was friendly, the service was fabulous and the food was great. We ordered small plates to share. I will definitely go back. It's a great find!"

  • "I loved the space, upon entering we were immediately met with a warm welcome, our table was ready but we were also offered getting drinks at the bar. There was a fabulous wine selection, and we able to sample before deciding on a choice. The food is what we were looking for, lamb lollipops are worth going back for alone, musssels very nice and deserts were delish and a nice finish to the meal."

  • "Had a coupon so was great value. Food was good but not the best but the Lebanese food was actually better than French lol Service is the reason why you are going plus it is very cosy and close to bars. Everyone there was lovely and I would go there in a heart beat!"

  • "I chose this restaurant for it's location and pre fixe dinner option. I regret bringing three of my close friends for dinner. One friend had to send her glass of wine back because it tasted like it was corked. Another sent her very watery soup back. Servers brought the wrong food to our table three times, including someone else's leftovers. When the wrong entree arrived, and we asked that it be corrected, the food runner didn't apologize and slammed the replaced plate on the table when he returned. His behavior came across as very rude. Overall, the food (when the food we actually ordered arrived) was mediocre. Our waitress was friendly, and the quality of the food was certainly not her fault. I will not return to this restaurant."

  • "We went there for Valentine's Day dinner, and La Carafe far exceeded our expectations. It's French, but not stiffly formal as at really expensive, glitzy French establishments. The service was attentive and friendly, the food was very good and, for a New York restaurant, the prices were very reasonable. The restaurant has bare brick walls and subdued lighting that give it an Old World ambiance. We thought it was perfect for a Valentine's Day celebration. It's a moderate-sized space, so it probably is a good idea to have a reservation on weekend evenings. We'd certainly go back."

  • "The friends I ate with enjoyed their burger and shrimp dishes; however the mussels I had were unseasoned and undercooked. Not how I like my seafood!"

  • "We were very disappointed in LaCarafe. The French fries tasted as if they were frozen, the steak portion was small. The escargot was acceptable but not great. We had to beg for bread. We would not return to this restaurant."

  • "We have been here before and continue to go back. Prices are reasonable - they have great specials - and their Frittes are delicious whether with mussels or steak! The service is great and the staff so friendly. We continue to come back here whenever we are in this area of the city."

  • "The food was okay for the price, but the environment left a lot to be desired. It was very cramped and loud, and they seated us right next to the door, and then the hostess kept the door wide open, which gave us frequent blasts of frigid air sometimes with cigarette smoke mixed in. Not very considerate service."

  • "They has a very good, inexpensive dinner combo. Salmon/chicken, with salad, and a glass of wine for only $22!! No one can beat this price in the area. Also, the Foie Gras was excellent!! For $12, it comes with toasts. Very good deal!!"

  • "I went to La Carafe for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend. I love French food and it was outstanding. The only issue I had is that we had several people waiting on us but the real issue is that the waitress that took our dinner order didn't seem to put it in. After our appetizer, she asked if we were ready for dessert and I asked about our appetizers. She looked like a deer in the headlights and walked away. I watched her leave (I guess her shift was over) and she didn't come back to the table to let us know that our main course was on the way. We had to ask another waiter about it and he said it would be ready in about 10 minutes. I don't think the original waitress ever put in our order."
