Diner Reviews
  • "I went here with a vegan friend of mine; he was thrilled that I had found a restaurant where, despite being vegan, he could have French food. I'm an omnivore but decided to try their vegan dishes. We shared two appetizers -- the Village Salad, which I loved, and the Sauteed Brussels Spouts, which I liked. For the entree I had the Cassoulet, which I thought was great. My friend had another appetizer -- the Beet Carpaccio Salad -- and I forget what else. He loved everything he had. For desert I had the Fondant au Chocolat, which was good. I forget what my friend had. The sound level was low: very conducive to conversation. The space is small and nicely decorated. This omnivore and his vegan friend are both glad that they ate there."

  • "It's rare you find a French veggie option so tasty! We had the balsamic strawberries and brussel sprouts as an appetizer - perfectly cooked and a bit blackened - great blend of flavors. For entrees, my friend and I split the cassoulet (filling but healthy - would be great in winter - beans and veggies) and the kale/mushroom dish in dressing. Was nice not to have kale stems included and a great flavor, but this dish did feel very "veggie." For dessert, the molten chocolate cake - lots of molten served warm - very delicious! Overall, a bit pricey. Of note - they're BYOB (no corkage fee). They have their menu labeled "0 cb, locb, hicb" to indicate the amount of carbs in a dish some things are labeled "0 cb" that certainly don't seem to be!"

  • "My boyfriend and I enjoyed very much, especially the house salad, strawberry brussels sprouts and coq au vin.. Fondant au chocalat and banana brule were yummy for someone never like dessert... Must try!!!"

  • "Absolutely loved the food here. Great place for many specific dietary needs ( GF, vegan, etc) and enjoy French cuisine. BYOB is nice. Evening started out quiet but got louder on Friday night as evening went on. Reservations recommended. Get Duxelle, Oyster mushrooms, fruit tart."

  • "Food was alright, but let a little to be desired. The brussel sprouts app, as well as the ravioli were great; however, the goat cheese tart and eggplant lasagna were not well done, in our respective opinions. Also, an unusual event occurred whereby a pedestrian tripped-and-fell outside of the restaurant, causing a scene in front of the patrons and not particularly well-handled by the restaurant staff."

  • "My sister and I got a groupon for this place and were excited as yelp reviews were good. Unfortunately we were disappointed with this restaurant. Not sure if the food selection and size were reduced due to groupon promotion, but it definitely left a "bad taste" in our moth. The appetizers were tiny - they were so small you could hardly taste them. So I hope when they charge a regular price of $12 per appetizer those come bigger. The entrees were also very small - probably the size of what appetizer should be and tasted very blank. The only good part was the desert.We don't eat much and of course were full after full course and soft drinks, however the portions ARE very tiny and my husband and her b/f would be very upset and probably hungry."

  • "I rarely post reviews. I try to avoid going to the same restaurant twice. Le Village is an exception on both accounts. The place is so special. Food is beyond amazing. I am planning to come back until I try all the items on the menu. So far, everything I've tried from vegan appetizers to a tender duck with amazing sauce to a sumptuous dessert was unforgettable. The service is very attentive and friendly. The chef greets you and provides food recommendations. The place is quiet and romantic. Great menu + BYOB = where else can you find this combo in NYC? Wishing this restaurant much success that it truly deserves. Not too much, though, just enough for me to get the next reservation in! "

  • "Charming French vegan restaurant in the East Village -- the majority of the menu was vegan with a few meat dishes thrown in for carnivores like myself. The Warm Brussels Sprouts and strawberries in balsamic appetizer were delicious -- and according to the waitress the favorite. I enjoyed the Coq au Vin and my friend the Cauliflower. Desserts were gorgeous -- as one would expect from a French restaurant -- I had the molten chocolate cake and my friend the banana Crème Brule. All in all a lovely dinner. They do not have a liquor license but allow you to bring a bottle of wine (1 bottle for each 2 people) at no corkage fee."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
