Diner Reviews
  • "This Alsatian "pizza" is the only reason to make the trek up past 86th Street now that Elaine's is closed. We always bring our visitors to the city here. Friendly service and delicious comfort food, like eating at someone's home. A great small venue ambience (there is maybe 10 tables). Our standard share couple meal is a salade verte, a mushroom tarte with extra muenster cheese, washed down with a second tarte or their crazy good mac n cheese. Nice small beer selection, Belgian and Alsatian. Always remember to ask if the Reisling is sweet or dry. And never fail to exasperate the staff by asking if they are French OR Alsatian :)"

  • "A small place with maybe 8 tables. Service would be comparable to being fed at a friends's house. Menu is unusual, so best to review online at home before coming. Specialty is Alsatian pizza which is the Tarte Flambee. Different and delicious. My favorite is the Original and the Forestiere with extra Muenster Cheese. The Mac n Cheese is also incredible. It's all shareable with a group. The pizza comes thin crust, 8 square slices. I've seen people order them one pie at a time until they were full. We watched a couple eat 4 pies one time. We usually share a salad, one or 2 Tartes and a Mac n Cheese. Good Belgian and Alsatian Beers, French wines. Ask the staff all the history questions you have about Alsace, fascinating."

  • "Not like any other pizza I've ever had. Super thin crust and fresh toppings. The only reason I don't give it five stars is because the wine list is very limited."

  • "If you're looking for fine dining, this is NOT the place... BUT if you want a place that makes amazingly delicious flamenkeuken (I might have misspelled that), then you have found your spot! The staff is French, as is the chef in the back. Half priced wine bottleson Tuesdays, and half-priced beers on Mondays!"

  • "It was our second time dining here (the first time we went was over a yr ago around the time this place first opened), and I am glad to report the service and food remains outstanding in spite of the significant increase in the volume of customers (which I am glad to see as it indicates they are doing well). It is a small place, but cozy and not cramped. We made reservations and were seated as soon as a table became available, and food arrived very quickly to the table. It was also a nice touch to see them taking good care of the other patrons by offering hot drinks as they awaited their tables outside the restaurant. The waiter (who appeared to one of the owners) was a very friendly and personable, and the menu pricing is very reasonable."

  • "Essentially the Alsatian version of our flatbreads, the supremely thin, crispy crust just oh-so-overloaded with creme fraiche, onions, bacon, and other goodies was really quite lovely. The potato-leek soup was outstanding; I'm so glad we didn't miss it. And the dessert flambee of creme fraiche, strawberries, and homemade chocolate sauce was to die for. My dining partner's flambette sandwich on a wonderful crusty bread was a winner as well. Well done! Would love to try brunch sometime!"

  • "we were looking for a cozy and relaxed place to meet after the museums that did not force us into a full meal. the tartes are delicious. one per person is about right unless you are starving.. onion soup is recommended. they accommodated a large group with reservation, no problem. service was perfect. we will be back."

  • "I have dined here on multiple occasions. The food is always perfect (get the flammys!) The service is always perfect and friendly. Cozy place, and it happens to be about 2 blocks away From my apartment! I could not ask for more. A true neighborhood gem. If you haven't gone, GO! Tell them Cory, the Bruce Willis lookalike sent you. Bon appetit!"

  • "My first experience with Alsation food, they specialize in 'flamees' -- thin, matzoh like 'bread' covered with delicious creme fraiche and an assortment of toppings, a french pizza, if you will. We tried the 'traditional' with Gruyere, bacon and onions, as well as the Forestiere, which included wild mushrooms. Delicious, but somewhat basic. The side 'trio' we ordered left a bit to be desired -- plainly sliced cucumbers, sliced beets and their 'seasonal greens' were just a few pieces of lettuce (romaine? arugula? I'm actually not sure) thrown onto the plate looking more like garnish then food (dressing was good though). Service was excellent. Warm atmosphere. Very cozy."

  • "La Tarte Flambee is a cozy niche on the Upper East Sides. The main dishes, entree and dessert tarte flambees, are perfect for sharing and paired with a good wine, make for an intimate dinner date meal. The dishes themselves, in terms of flavor, aren't particularly special, but the presentation is delicate, rustic and appeasing."

  • "Visiting New York and took a chance on this based on the reviews. Very small space but adds to the novelty. Flatbreads were really good and a decent wine selection. Worth it if you want something out of the usual restaurant experience."

  • "When I worked in Alsace many years ago, I discovered Tarte Flambée and fell in love with this particularly Alsatian treat. When I stumbled upon La Tarte Flambée, I was delighted to be able to get this wonderful dish here in NY. I have been back several times and it is consistently wonderful! The service is also wonderful! Definitely recommend La Tarte Flambée to everyone! If you have had Tarte Flambée before, you will love their authentically made tart and if you haven't, you are in for a treat that will have you coming back for more :)"

  • "Many thanks to this restaurant! Have been several times and each time is a treat. The last time I was visiting with a friend and I have had nearly everything on the menu so I asked the owner to just pick a few different flammies for us and prepare them how he would like them. He did not steer us wrong. Perfect. Looking forward to a return soon!"

  • "I'm so happy I discovered this place. The restaurant is small and cozy. The peole who work there are also very helpful and nice. And the food is just so yummy. A flambee is like a really thin pizza.Try the flambee with honey, goat cheese and bacon. The spicy one with jalapenos and ground beef is also very flavorful. This place is definitely worth revisiting."

  • "My daughter lives in UES -- so I was on the lookout for reasonably priced highly rated options in her neighborhood for our visit, and found this on Open Table. We had a GREAT meal. Between the 4 of us - we each ordered a soup or a salad, then we split two flammies, gruyere and wild mushroom. We ended with the calvos flammie - flambe. An excellent meal. Service was very good, and very helpful to explain the menu options. Wine and beer choices were good."

  • "The team at Tarte Flambee is charming and lovely. The food was very good and reasonable. They just need to work on kitchen management so the food is ready to come out to the dining room. That said we will be going back and bringing friends.. just hoping the wait for our food isn't so long next time!"

  • "Food is exceptionally good (all tartes!) and the service attentive. Looking forward to returning and trying other items on the menu. Also worth noting, this is one of many restaurants currently affected by the 2nd avenue line construction, our patronage is crucial for these small businesses. I encourage everyone to stop by."

  • "My wife and I discovered this place a few months ago and have adored it ever since. The Flammenkuchen served here are a combiantion of fancy treat and comfort food. The quality is consistent, each Flammy I've eaten has been cooked perfectly, the ingredients tasting fresh and wonderful. The variety of salads is great, with the roasted beet salad being my wife's favorite. Their small wine list is still wonderfully chosen; the wine really goes with the Alsatian cuisine. The service here is beyond friendly, it's welcoming, attentive, and human. I recommend this place to anyone that like's a restaurant that focuses on serving great food in a casual, homey atmosphere of Alsace."

  • "I went to Strasbourg a few years back and one of my fondest memories was the delicious Tarte Flambee that can only be found there. Along with that were the wines that just can't be found here in the US. When my friend travelled here from Alsace and told me he found a traditional tarte flambee, I instantly said I had to try it. I am so glad I did because I have not been disappointed with the quality of the food and the service. I brought friends who never tried the food as well and they were very pleased as well. I can say that I will definitely come back here regularly because their specials are great, the wines are tasty and they even offer meals that are well put together. Hands down one of my favorite places to go to."

  • "This tiny restaurant was a delightful spot for lunch. At 2pm, it was still full with diners who embraced the relaxed atmosphere by dining, chatting, reading and enjoying well prepared fresh food. My husband had the gazpacho and I enjoyed a tarte with gruyere cheese. The tarte was a treat, crispy, tasty, light - just perfect and the soup felt like it was made on the spot. The service was wonderful and the coffee, divine."

  • "This is a small restaurant (I counted 24 seats), so reservations are a good idea any time. The server was very laid back and let us order one tart at first with the option for another. The food comes out quickly, so we didn't wait long for our second one. The salad was nothing special, but both tarts were very good, with paper-thin crusts. I also appreciated the wines available in multiple sizes (glass, half-carafe, etc.). It's rare to find an Alsatian pinot gris by the glass."

  • "VERY pleasant experience here. Food: delicious! They are known for their tarts for a reason. The original gruyere as well as the one with munster cheese are outstanding. It's light, crispy and so flavorful. The beet salad appetizer is highly recommended WITH the goat cheese! Meat pie entree and salmon entree were delicious. They also have a lovely beer selection! Service was perfect. The waiter recommended his favorite dishes and really made us feel like locals. Ambiance was lovely. The space is a bit small so it may feel a bit crowded especially with how popular the place is but it's all worth it!"
