  • "The food was very delicious and the service was simply outstanding! The place is simple and quiet, with a very good atmosphere. It was a perfect dinner. Definitely GO (just notice the BYOB policy) "

  • "We love BYOB New York restaurants. 3 of us shared the Sautéed Brussels Sprouts and Ravioles a la Crème as appetizers. I had the Cassoulet and they had Magret du Chef, which I also tasted, as main courses. The strawberries with Brussels sprouts were an unusual and very tasty combination. The ravioles were tiny squares filled with Comte, in a rich cream sauce. Easy to share. Vegan Cassoulet takes some adjustment. This one is flavored by a suite of smoked mushrooms and black pepper. It works very well. The Cassoulet is rich and satisfying. The magret de canard wasn't as appealing. Ordered "rare"; delivered "medium". Too bad, the chocolate sauce and red bell pepper coulis were excellent. Shared a bottle of 2005 St. Cosme Chateauneuf du Pape."

  • "Fabulous. We've been eating particularly fussy but excellent food in the city this week and this was the first time we felt we had a real meal, like we were not just tasting interesting foam but being truly nourished. Thank you."

  • "Some exceptional food is coming out of this tiny kitchen. The welcome is warm and there's obvious pride and passion behind this project. A sliver of a restaurant but cheery and not cramped; even banquette tables have some breathing room. Relaxed, sophisticated ambience, at least on a midweek night. I enthusiastically recommend the crudite trio, sumptuous ravioli appetizer, coq au vin and subtle, complex eggplant lasagna with chickpeas. Molten chocolate cake and fruit tart of the day were terrific also. Menu now includes a duck entree; look forward to going back and trying many more dishes. BYOB makes this an affordable indulgence."

  • "Hello, food was very poorly tasting. It was like school food. Only good thing was dessert which was excellent. Coq au vin didnt taste for anything and appetizers were similar. My friend had similar opinion when he visited on another occasion there. Went in with Groupon."

  • "I had a groupon and we got to try almost every thing on the menu. We were happy/In Love with every dish. If i lived in NYC it would become a regular spot."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "This unassuming restaurant is the other side of the coin from the great meat restaurants of New York. The only flesh served is a delicious and authentic coq au vin. The other dishes include tiny French ravioles in a heavenly truffled cream sauce, an onion tarte served with sauteed truffled polenta, roasted whole cauliflower and lots more. While it's still BYOB, the wine deserves the best you can bring--at no corkage charge."

  • "We came to this restaurant with a groupon to check it out. We made a reservation and brought our own wine. We went on a very slow night, which we did not mind at all; it was more romantic and the attention from the waitress was great. All the dishes we ordered from the prix fixe menu were really good; we were very impressed and satisfied. Thank you!"

  • "Can't say enough good things about this place! We've been here several times and the service was always outstanding and the food remarkable! Lived in NY for over a decade and this vegetarian restaurant probably in the top three. I love French food, when I went vegetarian I feared I wouldn't be able to enjoy all the comforts and decadence French cuisine entailed until I discovered Le Village. I hope that everyone can experience this neighborhood gem as I have, it is truly a diamond in the rough (easy village). Yrs I would recommend this to everyone I know. Sometimes I'm so happy with how the food has left me feeling I wouldn't mind shouting it out on he rooftops, I loved it so much. Now only if I can get access from my super."

  • "This was honestly the best vegetarian food I've had in recent times, so good that even the carnivores at our table didn't feel shortchanged in the least. Every dish we had was hearty, flavorful, and downright succulent. Standouts among the appetizers included the French onion soup, brussels sprouts with shallots and strawberries, beet carpaccio salad, and ravioli with Comte cheese. The coq au vin and roast cauliflower head were memorable. We can't wait to return!"

  • "Charming East Village bistro for vegetarian French with a few meat/poultry choices. Everything is beautifully seasoned. Hearty stews predominatw on the menu. I look forward to trying the Spring/Summer menu changes. It's BYOB with serviceable glasses."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Had very good experience using Groupon, menu items are pretty tasty and the selection of vegetarian options is satisfying. The pate's are great, especially the country pate (non-veg). Also the gnocchi were a great option. Banana creme brulee is light and refreshing compared to traditional custard. The restaurant is a little cramped and does not have an alcohol selection, but they allow you to bring your own drinks, which is probably a savings. Overall, the food is great quality and the ingredients seemed fresh, although the eggplant lasagna does seem to have store-bought pasta."

  • "Le Village is a simple vegan-friendly restaurant on one of the more vibrant street in the East Village. It is BYOB and either cash or AMEX (!), no VISA. We started with sauteed brussel sprouts with strawberries, which sounds weird but was terrific. The pate was good and were the duxelles. For our main courses we shared the eggplant lasagne and mushroom ragout, both of which were above average and served in healthy portions. Service was friendly and efficient, and the noise level was not so high as to inhibit conversation. With espresso but with no dessert we paid $120 for a party of 3, which is high for a neighborhood place but not ridiculous. We definitely would return, and it goes on our expanding list of downtown vegan restaurants."

  • "We went to Le Village for Valentine's Day and liked the food a lot. It was prix fixe menu and everything sounded and tasted great -- the one exception being that my gnocci was a bit over-baked. But our main takeaway was that they were understaffed for the holiday. We had to wait 40 minutes between finishing our entrees and getting our desserts, then another 20 minutes between finishing our desserts and getting our check. I was excited to find an actual vegetarian french restaurant. I would go again, but maybe on a slower night."

  • "And my favorite French restaurant. I rarely think about/crave meals I've had at restaurants. But time and time again, I fantasize about meals I've had at Le Village and at Table Verte (its previous incarnation)."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I came for a romantic date and we were THRILLED with Le Village! I honestly have no words to describe how incredible the brussel sprouts were--I wish I could eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every single day. I got the coq au vin for my entree, and I've grown up with my parents cooking coq au vin all the time--this was the best I've ever had, no question. So rich and perfectly seasoned and came with 2 boiled potatoes that soaked up the sauce. Oh and they give you a spoon as well as a fork--I like that they expected me to eat the sauce like soup. I got the banana creme brulee for dessert. The chef came out to chat with us and said it was his take on "banana pudding" (Magnolia Bakery?)...absolutely incredible."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "The food and the place itself was very nice. I would've given a 4 but we were rushed out of the restaurant for the next customer. We made a reservation for 6:30. I guess by the time we got our food and just was finishing our food it was about 7:57(i looked at the time when the waiter came over). The waiter tells us well just to let you know you have to clear the table by 8...I wouldn't have minded if he let us know at least half hour before, but 3 minutes before, that kind of ruined all the good vibe I was having about this place. Overall they do have good food and I think it is a good place to go with a small group or a date."

  • "I wanted to do an anniversary dinner on a budget--something French, vegetarian-leaning, and romantic--and this place was perfect. I used a Groupon, and brought my own bottle of wine (there's no corkage fee)."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "This has become one of my favorite places to go for dinner. I couldn't wait to take friends that were vegan and expose them to tasty french vegan versions of classic meals. They now offer a variety of vegan and non-vegan selections which is lovely, I wished more restaurants were this forward thinking, there's something for everyone. Seriously, make the trek down to Le Village, you won't regret it. The food is delicious, fresh and reminds me of home in France."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "The owner changed the name of the restaurant, but it was just as good as when it was Table Verte. Now it isn't entirely vegetarian, but the majority of the menu is. We went of a quite night, but the ambience is just as good when the restaurant is packed. We will definitely return again."

  • "My wife and I were looking for a vegetarian restaurant and found Le Village. The service was good. I wouldn't describe the choices as expansive, but they were adequate. We enjoyed both the soup of the day (lentil) and our individual entrees. If you like mushrooms you will like their entrees. Even though we passed on dessert the, the options looked yummy."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "We love this new find. The French onion soup is amazing and vegetarian. Everything we had was delicious. Who knew brussel sprouts and balsamic glazed strawberries go so well together? And you have to have the banana dessert. My husband doesn't even like dessert, yet went crazy for it. It's BYOB (with NO corkage fee) and cash or AMEX only. The restaurant gives you plenty of heads-up about this, and I prefer bringing my own wine anyway. Definitely worth visiting."

  • "Who knew that French food could be vegetarian (although there is one meat dish on the menu) and still so delicious? This is by far the best vegetarian food I've ever had--better than Gobo, better than Angelika's by miles. The charming and friendly chef enjoys playing with textures and it works perfectly. The wilted kale entree served on mushrooms and potatoes is great; my friend described the beet salad (w/light horseradish, raisins, almonds and sea salt) as "the best thing I've eaten in my life") and there's a dessert that's like a perfect chimera of banana pudding and creme bruelee. This place is aces."

    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "Crafting a vegetarian menu to appeal to a general audience is definitely an undertaking, but I think Table Verte did a wonderful job of making their food not only appealing and comforting, but also unapologetically vegetarian - no imitation meat, just vegetables in every form imaginable from raw to stewed to roasted. Some dishes are a little heavy on the cheese (like the goat cheese tart), maybe to convince meat eaters that they weren't just being served vegetables. I recommend the French onion soup, fennel main course and café liegois for dessert. Note: this place is BYOB with no corkage fee, which end up being a pretty great deal."
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "The food here is incredible! Prix fixe with lots of options, all vegetarian and all so good. The food is all made to order so if you're in a rush this is not the place for a quick meal. Can't recommend the French onion soup enough."
    Dined on 10/24/2013
  • "I was amazed -- as was my palette -- with the innovative choices on the menu for Vegans and Vegetarians. Vegan myself, I delighted in every bite of the Roast Beet Medley with Horseradish Sorbet (go figure) and the Stuffed Kale. I have discerning taste and it is always a thrill to be surprised. I appreciated the unassuming atmosphere and the fact that the staff made us feel very much at home. French accents were like cherries on top of a sundae. I highly recommend Table Verté"

  • "We've been here before, the service was not as fast as it had been previously, but the food was better. We took two people who had never been to a restaurant like Table Verte and they were both happily surprised to find they really did like the food and ambiance. We would definitely come back."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "We visited Table Verte for a second time. Hard to imagine vegetarian and some vegan even in a French Bistro setting, but this is what it is and the Prix Fix options are uniformly delicious. It is BYOB, but there is not corkage fee. Very pleasant place. Food is terrific."
