    We picked the restaurant based more on location than menu, but we loved the food, the helpful waiter, the drinks, the friendly atmosphere, and we were only sorry we weren't able to stay longer. Excellent value for money, too.

    We were three friends who had studied in Alsace years ago dining at La Tarte Flambee on a Monday night (half priced Alsatian beers!). We've missed tarte flambee since leaving Alsace and La Tarte Flambee offers the best one we've found in New York so far. We love both the traditional and the variety of options for the flammies (as they call them). The waiter was friendly and accommodating. The all you can eat is a great deal!

    Found this place just looking through OpenTable..Very interesting, very small and very worthwhile. The menu is under the glass on the table..and may be off putting...Here is my deco: Go with some friends (4 is perfect, 6 would be ok) and let the waiter/owner/dude from Alsace guide you. Order a lot of wine and have fun...

    We popped into La Tarte Flambé after a concert in the neighborhood, not knowing what to expect. We were immediately greeted and seated. The menus are under plastic on the tables and the restaurant is very small. I had spicy tomato with jalapeños and chicken and it was delicious with its very think baked crust. I see why people have said it is between a crepe and a pizza. My husband enjoyed his Alsacian sausages and potato salad and part of my tarte. We had a good bottle of Rose. We would go there again at a later hour. Tables are right together and there is a very casual atmosphere. Very reasonable repast!

    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 :)

    Dined on 7/17/2014
    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.

  • A nice intro to Alsatian flatbreads
    deliusfanVIP
    Dined on 1/27/2014
    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • A taste of Alsacien home
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/17/2013
    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.
