    I have visited Laduree in Paris and loved it. The New York SoHo location is beautiful, but the lunch food leaves much to be desired. I have thoroughly enjoyed breakfast here in the past and will go again for a morning meal. The servers could be more attentive.

    It was exactly an hour and five minutes before the tea and coffee arrived at our table. I actually had to ask whether our server had passed away since we never saw her again. I certainly miss the old Barolo.

    I read all of the reviews and I was hoping our experience would have been different. While it was pretty inside and the pastries were outstanding, the poor service ruined the whole experience. Our server came to greet us 40 minutes after we were seated. We asked three times. One bus boy brought us water, but every time we asked about our waiter - we were told they would get him and then we waited more. Even the head server did not rush to get someone. It was just ridiculous and it wasn't even overly busy. For the price you pay for "light" fare, they should be knocking themselves out to please you. Our experience in Paris was far better. We will not be back. I would rather give my money to another establishment that works for it.

    I wouldn't recommend Laduree for brunch, or any sit-down occasion. I wasn't really satisfied with the food, and the service was slow and ridiculously inefficient. I don't think the tables are assigned to a water because every person came up to me and asked for my order and I had to tell them I was already set. Then the exact opposite happened when I asked for the check: no one was around or wanted to give it to me. You won't be able to sit down if you don't make a reservation, however reservations are always open and can be made through OpenTable. I don't like the pretentiousness of this place. If you want to be a posh, French restaurant, then be it, but hire people who are capable.

    Dinning at Laduree very much transported us to Paris for the afternoon. The place is gorgeous, the staff is tres chic and the food divine. I loved that they did not rush us out - we could enjoy our omelettes and patisseries without them nagging us or pressuring us to leave. A great gem in the city!

    Excellent food as usual. Eggs Benedict prepared to perfection. Macaroons... no words need to be spoken. Waiter was more interested in chatting with friends who were near the bar then being attentive to us. When we finished Eggs Benedict we didn't see him for 15 minutes. When he finally came over, he was asking us what we had so far as he had forgotten. when we said we were ready for dessert he didn't know the different flavors of the macaroons! Waiting for him to come back was even longer. He didn't really care was our overall impression.

    Santiago, our server, was exactly what we needed to slow down and enjoy our treat. Everything was wonderful and we stayed for 3 hours without being hassled to move onwards. We had lunch, dessert, and finishing beverages and all we ordered was beyond tasty ... I look forward to visiting again in the Fall with my husband.

    I've been to Laduree in both Tokyo and Paris. But I was so disappointed at this one in New York. Everything is so slow and i guess no one cares whether our table is doing good or not. They kept us waiting for the whole time, waited for them to set the table for like 15 mins, waited for the menu, for our tap water, for our food, for everything. The food is awful. I waited for over 10 minutes for my ice cream spoon then I gave up, i used my coffee spoon instead. This is beyond ridiculous. The waitress Jamie gave us the bill and told us to take our time, however, 2 minutes later, she rushed us to pay because she wanted to go home. what a joke, you kept us waiting all the time, but when you wanted the tip, you wanted it right away?

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    Laduree Soho has a lovely garden, well-prepared but simple dishes and excellent desserts. It is not a formal dining destination, more of a casual place for brunch, afternoon tea, and light lunch or dinner. In colder weather, I think it would be nice to have coffee etc. in the indoor spaces.The mostly French staff is gracious and welcoming.

    It was obvious that our waitress was new and I understand it. Therefore, I will not comment on the mistakes that she made. We order two brunches but everything came out at once, the beverages (coffee and orange juice) and the food (2 bowls each of the yogurt and the fruit, the scrambled eggs, the house breads and butter dish. This could be the kitchen's fault, but we just could not appreciate each course separately. We felt rushed and confused. We couldn't feel relaxed or enjoy the atmosphere as much as we would have like to. But on a positive note, the host was able to give me my room preference which is the far room next to the garden. The macarons are to die for. If not to dine in, I will definitely return for the sweets.

    This was a treat for us and we enjoyed the food. Service was mediocre as they seemed to be short staffed which took away from the experience. They were turning away people with a large empty room which tells me they were not ready for the lunch rush at 1PM on a Monday. Otherwise nice to go for a special treat. Be prepared to spend $50 a head with desert and we had no alcohol!

    I was visiting a friend from mine who lives in NY, we had Afternoon Brunch here last Sunday in Laduree's outdoor garden, it was so beautiful and I loved the afternoon tea, it was so cute and we got waaay more food than you need for lunch, needless to say, we were stuffed. Was pleased Laduree's macarons still served my memory right and were absolutely perfect - as these are what I compare all other macarons too! Will definitely come back next time I am in NYC

    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.

    I've now dined at this particular Ladurée three times, and each time, the service has gotten progressively slower. The most recent visit left me feel very neglected as a customer. There was next to no one in the restaurant; however, it took ten minutes to even get a nod of acknowledgement from the servers, and ten more to get one to come over. Getting a glass of water took half an hour. I LOVE the desserts. The Divín is to die for, the ice creams and sorbets are wonderfully unique and flavorful, and I haven't yet found a macaron flavor I don't like. But at the rate this Ladurée is going, I'll stick to taking everything as carry-out. I don't care to be charged for service I am simply not receiving.

    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!!).

    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.

    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.
