Diner Reviews
  • "Love this restaurant on a quiet Greenwich Village location. It's tiny, so be sure to make a reservation to enjoy the cozy atmosphere, friendly service and excellent food."

  • "The service was nice the food was ok. Nothing really stands out."

  • "The service was incredible, very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent (the duck, especially) and the ambiance was very intimate and quaint. Would recommend this to anyone. Probably not a great spot for large groups because the dining area is quite small."

  • "Unfortunately, the price to taste ratio here is not a good one. For a $30 dish, you expect some well delivered flavors - not the case here. While their bread is good, neither the seafood risotto nor the scallops really hit the mark for the price point. The staff was lovely, and the ambiance is quaint and charming."

  • "This Greenwich Village gem never ceases to charm. Food was excellent, perfectly seasoned and finished. It's a small space with a perfect wait staff to diner ratio. Service was excellent. We agreed that we need to come here more often."

  • "Always excellent. I go every so often and always enjoy the experience. I feel like I am back in Paris (food wise) but with NYC ambience and service."

  • "I made reservations for this restaurant for a special occasion. I had the leg of lamb since the name of the restaurant is french for "leg of". The portion was bordering on "nouveau" but was superbly prepared. My spouse had the soft shell crab as the "daily special". That, too, was scrumptious. I thought the wine glass portion was miserly but may have helped to pay the rent. The creme brulee we had for dessert was one of the best we've ever had with a caramelized top so thick that you had to stab it with spoon to get to the custard. It's a noisy, tiny, narrow place with diners even eating at the small bar in the front which testified to the quality of the dishes."

  • "Very good French food and friendly service. On that particular evening the restaurant was also pleasantly quiet. What more could one ask?"

  • "How small, intimate restaurants have operated successfully with the same management and chef for over 20 years. I have eaten at Le Gigot since it opened and have never, ever been disappointed - lunch, dinner, brunch - with enough variety and specials to be interesting. A very special experience."

  • "We went to Le Gigot for our anniversary.. Very welcoming people! Very good service, attentive but not intrusive. The food was good. The place was packed, tables are very close, but the noise is not too bad, so one still talk to fellow diners."

  • "Le Gigot transforms you to Paris. A charming place on charming Cornelia Street! The food is consistently delicious. This lunch we all ate crab, crab cakes, soft shell crab, prepared in a few different ways. All excellent! The staff are very attentive and obviously love their restaurant. Great for lunch, brunch or dinner. There are beautiful windows at the front of the restaurant that are wide open on nice days, so there is a lovely breeze wafting through the restaurant."

  • "Went with my boyfriend and his grandfather for dinner. When I made the reservation, I asked for a quiet table and the restaurant seated us in the back - it was quiet, but the pass-through to the kitchen was right there and I felt like waiters were overhead all night. Besides that, the service was accommodating and the food was great! Standard French classics done really well. Will likely return - particularly when family is in town - as the food is good and reasonably priced, and you can actually hear each other without yelling."

  • "Le Gigot, a small French restaurant in the West Village, is terrific. Four of us went there for dinner. Our favorites appetizers were the Charcuterie Platter and the Escargot. For mains, two of us had the Boeuf Bourguignon and the Rabbit - we loved it. My favorite of the mains was the duck confit, which consisted of both the leg and the breast - among the best I've ever had. One of us is a Francophile and travels to Paris numerous times each year. She kept saying this is as good or better than the food I get in Paris."

  • "terrific leg of lamb and duck confit with fabulous potatoes daphinois. the best fresh clams I think I ever ate. AND the best creme brûlée in our memory"

  • "This has become one of my favorite restaurants. It is small, relatively quiet, with all food, wine, and even Belgian beer very carefully selected and prepared. It is not a trendy place that will go in and out of style. The owner and most of her staff have been there for quite a while, which makes it a place to settle into and treasure by comparison with restaurants that make a splash then disappear."

  • "We dined at Le Gigot recently during a holiday in NYC for our 35th wedding anniversary. Le Gigot were great, we had been recommended to them by some friends whose son lives in NYC. The staff were very friendly , our waiter especially and they even gave us a glass of champagne to help us celebrate. Le Gigot is a intimate little place that makes you feel at home and provides great service and the food was divine. It was like stepping into a Bistro in Paris! And the Greenwich area is really interesting too. We would definitely visit there again."

  • "If you want to have the best crabcakes in Manhattan and enjoy a sophisticated yet old-world ambiance and still be able to hear the voice of the person sitting across from you, this is the place. You will be able to savour world-class food and wine, as well as intimate conversation at the same time. I lived in France for two years, and I can truly say that the ambiance is true to its roots: You will feel just as comfortable wearing jeans as you would a designer dress and high heels."

  • "The size and noise level were no surprise. The escargots starter was on the salty side and a bit overcooked. My rack of lamb was very good (and done just as I requested - pink); however, the second part of my request to skip the potato gratin and double up the vegetables was evidently ignored. Her arctic char was decent. My brioche pudding turned out rather boring, her rosemary ice cream was quite good. With 3 glasses of wine, the total was $140 before tip. In range of many other places....but other places also provide more consistent (better) food. Then the surprise - American Express only - so that meant a schlep to the nearest ATM. A mere 100 yards away, but annoying. All in all - not worth it, won't be returning."

  • "I've been going to Le Gigot for several years now, and I've yet to have anything but a wonderful experience. My latest visit was for lunch, and it was very quiet-- we were one of only three tables. I had the scallops, and my friend had the nicoise salad. Both were delicious-- we didn't leave anything on our plates! Take note that Le Gigot only takes cash or American Express. It was my friend's first visit, and she was surprised by that."

  • "Loved, loved this small, quaint French restaurant in GV! Lamb, duck and rabbit all on the menu...nice. However one of us chose the crab cake appetizer and the other the lamb leg. Both were excellent. The frisee salads were so fresh; crab cake had absolutely no breadcrumbs and the lamb leg cooked perfectly. We ordered a side of risotto which was to die for! Three scoops of gelato for dessert....yummy. The speed of service was the best we've had in a long time. Wine selection was nice and complimented our meal. The restaurant is small but that and all of the above is what makes this a place and meal to remember. "

  • "A really excellent dinner. We shared the terrific peters Point oysters. They are small to medium size oysters and always excellent. Then the evening special which was soft shell crabs. Very good preparation with some basil oil and soya. For us the first soft shells of the season. They were very very good. And for dessert we shared the brioche pudding. Our wine was a Quincy. This is a great little restaurant on a lovely street in the West Village. Highly recommended. "

  • "Been dining ad Le Gigot for many years, perhaps not as often as I would like since I am right here in the Village not too far away. I have enjoyed lunch and dinner and the menu is always fresh and replete with multiple competing choices. The night we dined we had the bay scallop appetizer and the escargot that were divine and the guinea hen entree was amazing. The waiter was so very attentive; ambiance lovely - a spring evening looking out the huge open windows was a special touch! "

  • "What a great restaurant experience, I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a little taste of French food culture. I found the food to be very well executed and the staff to be attentive, available and friendly. The space is small as others have noted but not in any way a detraction, that helps ad to the atmosphere of a quaint restaurant."

  • "A wonderful Village spot for classic and tasty French fare. The layout is cozy, not more than 30 or so seats, and the service is attentive and friendly. I had the rack of lamb with potatoes au gratin, which was excellent, and my companion had the gigot d'agneau, also terrific. Started with the oysters, which were incredibly fresh and delicious, and finished with the tart tatin. Le Gigot has a small but well thought out wine list with a selection of French standards. Dinner is a bit pricier than other typical French bistros in the neighborhood, but well worth it for the quality. "

  • "If you like the atmosphere and food style of a traditional French bistro, you will like Le Gigot. Totally unpretentious, delicious simple preparations of top quality food. Friendly and attentive service by staff who know the dishes well and how to guide your selection. The Loup de Mer (north Atlantic bass) was simply grilled and delicious; sea scallops were as well. You can't go wrong with either the standard menu or the daily specials. Prices are reasonable. Take note it is cash or Amex only."

  • "I took my folks here for Easter dinner, and we loved it. It is very tiny, but that only makes for more intimate service. Our waiter was not only charming and friendly, he was very knowledgable. We had the special Easter lamb fete, which was fantastic. For starters, I had the arugula pea soup that was wonderful. My father had the crab cake, which is filled with chunks of meat, not crab flavored bread crumbs. Although the wine list is limited, it is above adequate. And you must have the brioche pudding. It's to die for! We will be back!"
