Our lunch was totally wonderful.Our lunch was totally wonderful. The service was attentive but not intrusive. I will definitely go back!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for Mother's Day brunchBrought my parents here for Mother's Day brunch. The food was very good (both parents had the Eggs Benedict while I had the omelette). Service was that of a five-star restaurant and the space was warm and cozy.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMreally attentive without beingreally attentive without being intrusive service, both from the waiter and barman, let me wait for a friend without any pressure, helpful with wine suggestion, let us linger for a while, food was great for one person who wanted to eat lightly, the other wanting traditional French fare5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were in from out of townWe were in from out of town and looking for a low-key French bistro done well. Le Gigot was just that place -- unpretentious, good food and service. We were surrounded by "regulars", which always speaks well of a restaurant. It's in tight quarters, but not at all unpleasant in that regard- good things come in small packages.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten here four timesWe have eaten here four times in two years and always had a great meal--brunch, lunch and dinner. While the tables are almost as tight as Paris the food and service make it worthwhile and it's still comfortable. Oysters by the piece and sparkling wine by the glass are a great afternoon break. If you're going to the Met it's only a couple of blocks from the #1 train and a much superior value to the restaurants around Lincoln Center.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCalm in the StormLe Gigot is like stepping into a wonderful French bistro in the Marais except you are in NYC's West Village. It is charmingly small, the service is warm and welcoming and the food is authentic French bistro cuisine. The chef uses fresh local produce and meats in the preparation of your meal.
Not to be missed dishes are the Bouillabaisse, the roasted leg of lamb or the Boeuf Bourguignon. The specials are often so appealing that is is hard to choose. We have always left feeling happy and satisfied.
We have been going to Le Gigot for 15 years (they have been open for 17). Living in San Francisco, we would come to Le Gigot the first night of every trip to NYC. Having recently moved to NYC, we will be there more often.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved itMy wife and I had a very nice dinner at Le Gigot. The food is definitely authentic. The place is charming as well.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem in the VillageGreat little gem of a restaurant. Great food, service, and ambiance. Located on a lovely street in the west village really worth the visit. We had a frisée salad and wild goose oysters. Then duck confit and hangar steak. All superb. We shared the bread pudding dessert which had a lovely creme anglaise sauce ( think the sauce is called creme anglaise). The dessert was also superb. Very very highly recommended.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this restaurant. We goLove this restaurant. We go whenever we know we'll be in the neighborhood.

We'll be back.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe brunch--French toast,The brunch--French toast, paysan omlette, eggs Benedict--all standard brunch entrees, were prepared and presented exceptionally well. The waiter was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. The music, a combination of jazz and Broadway standards created a cozy mood without disrupting conversations. We, a group of four friends, spent an extremely enjoyable Sunday morning. We will all go there again very soon.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMEcellent romantic hole in the wall.Very small but excellent food and service.

Not as good as I tho it would be..3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific FindGreat little hide-a-way restaurant down in the Village. This is the smallest restaurant we've been to in terms of the number of tables and size of the dining floor and appreciated the intimacy. Attentive service and terrific food. Staff is extremely knowledable about their wine list and offered a tasting of a couple different wines before choosing. Will definitely return.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThree of us had dinner atThree of us had dinner at Le Gigot. My friend's rabbit and my husband's seafood risotto were much to their liking. However, I had the lobster risotto, which had carrots, celery (I think), and herbs in it. I suppose this is a very French preparation, but wasn't so appealing to me. I'll try something else next time. We love Le Gigot!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMCozy, inviting, with warmCozy, inviting, with warm service, Le Gigot offers classic French bistro fare that's tasty and nicely presented. The crab cake is succulent, with no bready filler. Eggs were perfectly cooked. Side salads were fresh and not overdressed. I'll definitely be going back, and not just for brunch.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an enjoyable dinner.We had an enjoyable dinner. Definitely a cozy restaurant with tight space, but we had a late reservation and by the end of the evening, we were one of two tables left and there was no rush for us to leave. A relaxed, neighborhood feel. Waiter was great. Salad was amazing - the French always master the dressing.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA really excellent dinnerA really excellent dinner in a wonderful restaurant. Service and ambiance can't be beat. If you haven't gone you have to go and enjoy. For dinner we both had the frisée salad. Excellent. For the main course I had the coq au vin special which was perfect and my wife had the risotto special which also was excellent. For dessert we shared the bread pudding which was soaked in a cream sauce. Superb. Our wine was a very nice St. Emilion.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful little restaurantHave eaten here both of our last two visits to NYC. Will keep it on our short list of restaurants to keep returning to. Like the food, wine list, waiter and intimate atmosphere. We have enjoyed the mussels, oysters, cassoulet and duck. Price is reasonable to us.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA great findHad no idea what to expect and was very pleased. The service was lovely, warm and expansive. I was able to taste all of the reds by the glass in order to make my selection. While seated at a table for two that was a bit awkward for conversation, we were able to move to the first vacant larger table in the midst of our dinner -- very accommodating! And, the food was very good -- real French comfort food from hthe fresh spinach soup to the boeuf bourgignon to the lamb three ways. Bread was warm and delicious.11/27/2012 12:00:00 AM
