A word from Le Paris
Formerly known as Bistro du Nord, the owner P. Laurent has re-invented the decor, food, and ambiance, creating a delightfully modern Parisian style bistro, "Le Paris." The menu offers new and improved dishes as well as the previous three course Pre-Theater Menu, served 5-7p.m. daily. The classic bistro fare includes duck confit, moules marinieres, steak tartar, grilled black angus au poivre, Kobe burger, lamb shank, calf liver, oysters, as well as a tempting fromage du jour and a large selection of wines by the glass or bottle at very reasonable prices. In addition, you can prepare your own fish or meat dishes, "simply done" with a choice of sauce and garnitures. At "Le Paris" you will feel transported to a romantic riverside table in Paris, complete with strains of music francaise and twinkling candlelight - a truly memorable dinning experience.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Nice three-course lunch for $18.95. Well prepared crepes and creme caramel. If you are looking for a traditional taste of France, this is a safe choice."

  • "We have eaten here many times and it nerved disappoints. Good French food and great service. Small intimate neighbor restaurant with a touch of Paris. Onion soup, artichoke excellent appetizers. Will be returning."

  • "We went to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Her nine year old came, too. The menu isn't exactly kid-oriented but she loved the chocolate cake for dessert. We were early so chose items from the pre-theatre menu which is quite a bargain. My salad was good, with just enough dressing to make the frisee appealing. My burger was delicious and prepared very well. A pleasant experience altogether."

  • "Le Paris is one of our neighborhood go-to restaurants because of its consistently good food and relatively moderate prices. My only gripe (a modest one) is that sometimes specials can be surprisingly expensive. Still, you might think you were in Paris with the mostly French staff and inviting, cozy atmosphere. Desserts are uniformly great. I can't say I've ever gotten a bad meal here."

  • "we have been there many times...today there was a party of young girls from a nearby school celebrating the end of the school year. The noise level was intolerable upstairs. They were able to reseat us downstairs after a brief delay. Much better. We have enjoyed it in the past and will certainly go back again. "

  • "Went there for lunch and ordered the prix-fix. There were 2 eyelashes (or very short hair) in my salad, and although I informed the server, there was only a quick apology and nothing more. I expected an offer of a replacement or a partial refund. The pasta was very oily. My friend's ordered seemed to be fine though. The place is quiet, small and sweet, but I won't be going back due to poor service. "

  • "Cute little french restaurant in the upper east side. Mussels with fries good but needed more seasoning. Service was fine but it's very close quarters. Tables side by side..hard to talk."

  • "Had an okay meal, arriving at 8pm, but felt rather rushed from the start. Our waitress was repeatedly ready for our order way before we were, and it was not until I noticed the staff emptying the cash register/whatever it was, at the bar, that I realized we were the last there and it was 9pm. All eyes upon us, it was time to go and let them go home. Nice neighborhood place but never after 8 on a weeknight!"

  • "Every time we go to Le Paris we have a wonderful time! The staff is very helpful, the food is consistently good, the place is very intimate. The balcony is specially charming, it feels like the Left Bank!"

  • "Great neighborhood restaurant and a feel of Paris. Food is always good as is the service. Special salmon appetizer was outstanding. "

  • "Le Paris is the genuine article, a real French bistro run by French people. Eclectic menu with a good variety of choices. Everything well prepared and presented. Very friendly service offered to both regulars (of whom there are a lot) and newcomers alike. A true neighborhood gem. Convenient to the Guggenheim and 92Y among other museums nearby."

  • "Sitting by the open window onto 5th avenue on a balmy spring night, my husband and I had a lovely dining experience at le Paris. Both of us had an excellently prepared fish main course and fresh salad starter. Portions were perfectly sized, the service was gracious, and there was a nice selection of wines by the glass. We also loved the cozy , rustic, casually elegant ambiance."

  • "First and foremost the seating it like flying on a cheap airlines. You sit so close the the next table you have to get up and move so they can move themselves. The pictures and the menu from the website were not very accurate. Most menu items were almost double in price and the pictures showed a more spacious dinning room area. It really is a pain in the but to get up and move everytime your neighbor needs to get up or down. I was so surprised how FAST our food arrived. We were in and out of the restaurant within 35 mins. Again it was a rushed and cramped experience. I will not return."

  • "Very nice place. Have been there many times given how close it is to our home. Chef seems to have a very consistent issue with over-cooking steaks. Very nice prime steak was cooked through and dried out. Unfortunate."

  • "Out-of-town friends visiting NY Metro wanted to meet for Sunday brunch at Sarabeth's, where we had eaten during their last visit. I suggested trying an alternative, across the street, based on a Yelp search. The two-floor Le Paris is cozy and intimate. Our little table next to the front window gave us a great people-watching experience. All three of us nearly licked our plates clean -- crepe savoyarde, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and homemade French fries, and the "best French toast" that my friend had ever had. Good, strong coffee and espresso; warm, light baguette and butter served before the meal."

  • "Two couples, small table, energetic room, attentive service. Amazing prix fixe special, even with supplements, plus reasonable wine list, make for an easy, but elegant, evening in the neighborhood. Started with a beautifully steamed artichoke, and others had the oozing French onion soup. The steak was tasty and a reasonable size. Wife had the delicious chicken paillard , and friends enjoyed the mussels. The one I tried was plump and tender. The flourless chocolate cake is sensational, especially when combined with vanilla ice cream. Definitely adding Le Paris to our rotation."

  • "A Carnegie Hill gem. Very good restaurant which for a few hours will transport you to St.. Germain. Intimate, with good menu, warm atmosphere and good service. Tres Bien."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "A very cute place with really good food! It's kind of nowhere but it's like a little haven tucked in the corner. Food was really good - they had a special beet salad which was very nice and steak was cooked perfect. The place is very small and they pack people in, but try the 2nd floor in front on the "mezzanine". Can't wait to go back"
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "Love my French food and Le Paris didn't disappoint. Particularly the coq au vin! It was prepared perfectly. The Sancerre was just fruity enough and served at the perfect temperature. The early evening prix fixe is so affordable, too. Will take another trip to Le Paris for the food, the attentive service and the price!"

  • "The downstairs is quite cute, but upstairs the the floor is bare cement that looks like it's in the middle of a renovation. Had to request the prix fixe menu at 6:45p with 15 mins to go. Food was delicious and a good value."

  • "Nothing outstanding but very convenient if going to Jewish Museum which is a block away. Very small. Service good, but water for tea was cold, coffee was lukewarm. Best deal is for the prix fixed brunch."

  • "We had a good brunch at Le Paris, the place is small but cozy and the omelettes are very good, the only thing we noticed that our waiter looked to be a bit unresponsive, rushed us and was somewhat rude to the waitress who seated us."
