The prix fix menu was a very good value. I would definitely dine there again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, as always!Ate here twice within five days on a visit three years ago. Will be doing the same thing this trip. Very charming interior, staff very pleasant, recognized our server from 3 years ago, food is excellent, the fixed price menu has great choices. Wonderful liver and onions. Do not leave NYC without eating here!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT!!!As usual, we were extremely happy with our experience. We have eaten here at lunch many times but this was our first dinner. I brought a new group of friends here and, whenever I'm squiring people into the city from Philadelphia, this is my "Go to" restaurant. The service and food are impecable and the host and hostess are always so pleasant to stop by and ask how we are doing.
LOVE THIS RESTAURANT!!
JoAnn McCausland5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood MemoriesWe have gone to Le Rivage for our anniversary for the last 29 years and have never been disappointed. The French restaurant has terrific service, nice people, excellent food and reasonable prices for NYC theater district. It is a very comfortable place to enjoy a dinner with the one you love.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMReally delightful restaurant.Really delightful restaurant. Great location! Great food! Great waitress named Ella. Wonderful value. We had a great time. We will be back.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming, Cozy, and Delicious!I've been bringing friends and family to Le Rivage for special dinners for more than 10 years and have never been disappointed. Most recently, last weekend I brought two friends who have adventurous palettes and discerning tastes ... and we have a wonderful meal. From delicious potato and leek soup, to refreshing prosciutto and melon, to start ... to wonderfully light, sauteed chicken cutlets in a variety of sauces, to shrimp scampi, to fresh vegetable ravioli, everything was fresh, light, and delicious. The atmosphere is cozy, the service accommodating -- you feel like you're in a French country home, right on Restaurant Row in NYC!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA French ClassicTraditional French dishes served in a warm atmosphere. Try the Onion Soup!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner choiceOld world charm decor, friendly and attentive staff, not too noisy, tables not too close together, tasty food, and fantastic value. I will absolutely return to this restaurant. My husband and I dined here for our anniversary last Saturday evening and it was a very positive experience. We were pleasantly surprised all the way around.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter the CrowdAfter the theatre crowd has departed (we arrived about 7:35), we were seated at a very comfortable table, and were immediately approached by a staff member still catching her breath from the pre-theatre rush. We told her that the rest of our party would be there shortly, and asked that we be allowed to dine leisurely. The menus only had the prix-fixe listed (that made us happy, as that was a prime reason for selecting Le Rivage, and we have had many occasions when a restaurant would advertise a prix-fixe, but would only supply diners with the regular menu). The selection, for $25, was very wide and delicious, and just as importantly, our server asked if we were ready for our mains, or if we wished to wait. That is service! And only $25!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelishHad pre theatre dinner with family in this quaint Parisian restaurant on restaurant row. Nice wine list as well as cocktails. The menu is varied with a wonderful selection of fish, meats and poultry. Both the onion soup and leek soup very good. Mussels in garlic sauce was outstanding. The trout almondine was delicious, as was the shrimp scampi. Enjoy dining here each time we come into NYC for a show as it is conveniently located in the theatre district.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMPre theater dinnerPerfect for pre-theater dinner.

House red and white very good. Paul and Giselle are wonderful hosts.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Pre-fixe off Broadway!Having rushed through many pre-theatre dinners in the theatre district, I had always herd that the price fixe $25.00 meal at Le Rivage was one of the best kept secrets around. Guess what?? It is absolutely true --each night after 7:30, they offer a $25.00 per person for 3 courses including coffee. More than one dozen appies -- we had terrific Artichoke heart salad; lobster bisque, duck terrine and celery root remoulade. Mains consisted of monkfish; shrimp, and lots of classic bistro dishes. More than 16 dessert choices, coffee and a nice bottle of an inexpensive Bordeaux completed the evening. Add to that excellent service, a quiet dining room and a wonderful soundtrack of French favorites (Stephen Grappelli, Django , etc) and you can'4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is always excellent withFood is always excellent with good-sized portions.

Had a friend in from out of town and a group of us all get together. This was the 2nd time we have done it at this wonderful place. The $25 prix fixe menu (from 7:30pm daily) is one of the great bargains of the city - and in the theatre district. It is a 3 course with coffee/tea from a very large selection in all 3 categories.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was absolutely wonderful.It was absolutely wonderful. If you like great French food, nothing too fancy, this is THE PLACE.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA group of nine is not alwaysA group of nine is not always easy to accomodate, nor is it easy to satisfy food preferences, service, etc. to everyone's satisfaction. However, I must commend Le Rivage for our group experiencing a wonderful meal and gettogether. Our server, Eva, could not have been better. She was accomodating, patient, and very professional. I have enjoyed many fine meals at Le Rivage over the years, and as usual, they did not disappoint.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNice French restaurantThis is a nice French restaurant in restaurant row. They have an ample prix fixe menu after 8:00 for $25.00. The salmon and haddock were excellent. Very cozy restaurant. We will definitely return.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe prix fixe menus offeredThe prix fixe menus offered a wonderful selection of choices. The quality of the food was very good. In spite of it being a "french" restaurant, the portions were very generous. The service was excellent and in spite of having theater tickets, we did not feel rushed. The only negative we found were that the tables were extremely small but in the end it did not matter. Would definitely return and recommend to friends.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSpring for Drink!I was with a party of four. We ordered the price fixed theatre menu. The appetizers were excellent. The entrees were superb. All four entrees came out together. My fish looked like a duck and it was! I had to wait while everyone else had there dinner. I was asked if everything was alright and I said I was waiting for my entree that an error had been made. Since we had the price fixed menu dessert was included. The restaurant could had offered an after dinner drink for the inconvenience. The table had two botttles of Rhone wine at the cost of $40.00 a bottle. The bottles actually cost $10.00 each. So the restaurant could have sprung for an after dinner drink!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI have had lunch at this restaurantI have had lunch at this restaurant on numerous occasions and have consistently had
a superb dining experience. I highly recommend it.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWarm, friendly, efficientWarm, friendly, efficient service. Menu had a large selection of appetizers and entrees that were very well prepared. Portions were a nice size. Although the restaurant was completely full, there was not much noise and it was easy to have a conversation at the table. The meal was delicious and well worth the price.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMValuable venue for theatergoersThis is a friendly pre-theater restaurant on "restaurant row" in the theater district. The food is quite good at a reasonable price. However, without taking anything away from the establishment in terms of the food it serves, its most significant value is to theatergoers. It serves very good food in a pleasant and efficient way in comfortable surroundings without making the diner feel rushed, and reliably gets him or her to the theater before the curtain goes up -- with time to spare. The service is graceful and informed and the experience enjoyable, allowing one to relax and forget that there is a deadline looming, but your server doesn't forget.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA NY favorite. The food isA NY favorite. The food is excellent and certainly one of the best value's in Manhattan. Dinner, lunch - either fine. And the food is prepared exactly the way you order.

My mother and I always dine here before Broadway Shows as the staff is very accomodating and attentive and will get you out in time for Broadway. The Frog Legs were delicious and the introduction of a yellow and orange beet appetizer were a welcome addition to the menu.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant français très accueillanRestaurant français très accueillant et fort sympathique. Le personnel (au moins une personne) parle parfaitement le français, la cuisine y est savoureuse. Bon rapport qualité / prix, prix fixe pour trois plats et le café.
