    The space is beautiful, don't get me wrong but the service kind of kills the experience. I took my younger sister here on her visit to NYC (I'm a local). I made a reservation for us in advance. When we approached the hostess she took a bit too long to greet us. I usually hate when people review a restaurant and talk about the service and not the food but this first impression really set our experience off on the wrong foot. I think the staff need better training in hospitality. The savory food was uneven. We had chilled foie gras that was surprisingly amazing. However, the eggs we ordered were rubbery and did not seem fresh. Wine selection is limited but fairly priced. Desserts are the best. Come here for sweets not food or warmness.

    After visiting most of the locations in Paris over the course of the past 5 years, I can attest to this location being so 'spot on' to the Real Deal! The interior is impeccable, the service is superb and the food is delicious. This is a very special place.

    The service is so so, there are stains inside the cups and menu. We ordered the omlette and smoked salmon with poached eggs, the omlette was very plasticky and their food taste like pre-made. We were looking forward to the dessert will change our feeling toward their food yet the rose pastry taste like sitting in the refrigerator for couple days... We waved and waited for the waitress and waiters for a while and seem like they are not too attentive. Only thing we are happy about is the Macarons we bought and eat outside of the restaurant.

    It is my second time there. The first time wasn't great as the wait was long and the service not to caring. However this time the service has improved a lot. Service was quick and efficient. The waiters pleasant and smiling. We were lucky as the weather was nice and we could eat outside at night. Food was nice, but it is too bad that for night service at least at that pricing, to have to eat with low quality paper napkins. Not too high French style...

    Delightful and elegant ambiance. Food preparation is wonderful. It is such civil place which should be appreciated because of its attention to detail in its decor and its food. The service personnel are well trained and know their manners. Wish that were true for some of the tacky homemade clientele who dress badly (as if they were going to the beach-no shorts please and t-shirts-use long pants and a shirt as you would be expected to do in a European establishment or else..... you look like what you are!!).

    Went for my grandmother's birthday and I have to say that the dessert and tea was quite amazing. It's pricey but worth it for those special occasions. Only complaint I would say is that the outdoor "garden" seating is a little blander than I thought it would be.

    We love Laduree in Paris and were very excited to visit the Soho location. We were only there for breakfast so can't comment on the food otherwise. The location is perfect as is the decor and the ambience. We all ordered the Laduree Breakfast with one ordering the Champs-Elysees breakfast. The croissants were just okay and somehow we expected a little bit more flavor-the 3 little croisssants pretty much tasted the same, although we were told each is a different variety. The Champs-Elysees included eggs and fruit, in addition to the croissants and bread, neither of which was that spectacular. The cappuccino was cold and we had to send it back- But you are paying for the Laduree name and the ambience, which was overall nice.

    Lovely! Great Soho spot. Ambiance -"ladies who lunch", however in my two dinner visits definitely a mixed crowd of ladies, men, couples, small groups & larger groups. I dined in the patio both times and it was just lovely. Service is impeccable and servers are friendly. Cocktails and food are delicious. There are wonderful salads and salads type entrees such as the sea bass carpaccio with a fresh salad and beans. The other nite I enjoyed the special which was sea scallops ....yum and a dinner companion had the snapper which was pronounced excellent. Wish to try one of the wide variety of egg dishes or a pastry for breakfast. Tea & desserts offerings extensive and wonderful, not to mention the marvelous macaroons!

    Laduree is like a beautiful nightmare. The setting is lovely, but the service was some of the worst in recent memory. We waited for 10 min before our waiter acknowledged us. We then waited another 15 min to actually place the order. Our food arrived before our drinks, one of our guests went the entire meal without a napkin or silverware, we couldn't get anyone to refill our waters, etc. At $8 for a lemonade and $19 for a club sandwich, this is absurd. We observed the table next to us (four ladies) sit patiently before leaning over and saying "We've been sitting 35 min and no one has come over...should we leave?" So...dine at your own risk. The beautiful decor was completely overshadowed by the anxiety of the experience.

    Don't be fooled by the French decor, this place is friendly and unpretentious and shockingly, affordable. The wait staff do carry a je ne sais quoi which may be misconstrued as neglectful. Definitely something that could have been left in Paris.

    Went here for Saturday brunch. Loved the eggs benedict with summer truffle, unbelievable flavor. The salade Laduree is an excellent mix of perfectly cooked vegetables mixed with lettuce and a delicious citrus dressing. I didn't care for the mostly bready tomato religieuse. Hot chocolate was wonderful. I have never really cared for macaroons but these macaroons converted me into a macaroon lover. Chocolate lovers should not miss plaisir sucre. Millefeuille praline is divine.

    Ordered tea at lunch with a friend and it took 45 minutes just for the tea to come out. After waiting 20 minutes to order the tea. Ordering and receiving was an arduous process but the back patio was so beautiful it felt terrible to be angry. It 2.5 hours to have a quick lunch and no manager or server ever apologized, not once after several complaints.

    I've been to Laduree in London several times and was disappointed to see such disorganized staff. The 3 hostesses were poorly trained and confused. I was asked by each of them over a span of 10 mins for name and party size, then taken to a table inside that had NOT been cleaned. When I asked for one of many empty tables for 2 outside, since my reservation had requested a table outside, I was informed they are reserved for regulars. At that point I walked out - they need to understand this is no way to get regulars in NYC (I am not a tourist).

    My second time here and my second time to experience such terrible service!!!! Had to ask everything more than three times! The menu, the sugar, the check! Waited for each for a very long time! Our server was just too busy with other people or something else! Was so unhappy with the service AND she even had the nerve to tell me that the tips are not included in the bill without me even asking! I hope they re train the staff to be more polite and efficient especially the lady servers because they are ruining the name of this restaurant

    I'd recommend going here at least once to try it since the atmosphere and staff are so nice. However, my tastebuds weren't blown away. The food was okay but very overpriced (i.e. a $7 order of fries contained exactly 7 fries). The desserts are beautiful but not delicious. I suspect their brunch is better and will maybe try that one day.

    Our party of four with an 8pm reservation was met by an annoyed hostess who was clearly eager to leave her job and get back to text messaging. We asked for a quiet table with a nice view of the restaurant. She looked at us like we had asked for a foot massage and told us "All the tables are the same. You want inside or outside?" "Inside please" We were walked into an empty dining room (8pm mind you) and seated at the table of our choice (like Denny's). We sat for 30 minutes waiting for someone to come to our table but the service was void! Not even water!! We actually laughed at how bad the service was, stood up and left the restaurant. I don't think anyone realized we were there. We went to Bouley on Duane Street and that was perfect.

    Laduree is an excellent addition to the Soho dining scene. Food and service are elegant and the garden setting is delightful. Three of us had brunch on a recent Sunday. We all enjoyed our different food choices. The bakery is a great place to stop on the way out to bring home a special dessert. I will definitely dine there again and recommend it to friends.

    We went here my birthday brunch and had a wonderful time. The service was good, although the restaurant wasn't that crowded so maybe we got lucky there. The food was very good and the setting is very relaxed and romantic. There's not rush to get you in and out; there were groups that you could tell were spending a good 3-4 hours dining. The outside has a lot of tree coverage which is great to shield you from the Manhattan sun. We recommend the club sandwich, and I would skip the salads next time. My boyfriend is French and saw a famous french musician dining there as well. The place has a lot of seating and each room is something from a fairytale! I can't wait to return.

    I have been to the restaurant Laduree in Paris years ago. I've also stood on line often for their delicious macaroons in the uptown location which is strictly macaroons and gifts. So it was with great anticipation that I made reservations for a birthday lunch with my daughter and niece. On a subsequent evening we went back again for an impromptu dinner since we were staying in the neighborhood. On both occasions the food was great, cocktails divine, the macaroons heavenly. The ambience in the main dining room is beyond pretty, imagine Marie Antoinette's salon and you have the idea. While other diners gravitated to the outdoor garden, dining inside to soak was a must for me. Only complaint was poor service the second night.

    I've loved Laduree since visiting the harrods location several times when I lived in London which is extremely difficult to get a seat in. I have been to the Soho location 3 times with no problems. Have had excellent service every time. Food and deserts were great as always. And I like the soft towels in the bathroom.
