    Raclette was the draw for us.--the melted cheese over boiled potatoes with dried beef, ham and veggies. Supposedly the only place in NYC serving this dish of which we are fond. The place is one of those lovely throw backs to earlier, more romantic times with old world service, neighborhood regulars at the bar dropping by. Menu provides other Swiss/Austrian favorites like fondue. A fun change of pace with real caring at the helm.

    I don't know why it has taken us years to get to Mont Blanc, one of the few theater district restaurants that still seems to be a mom & pop operation. A gracious woman welcomed us; I would guess she is the owner. The waiter was helpful with a menu whose food we are not familiar with. The food was tasty and generous. We will return.

    Ran across Mont Blanc while walking the in afternoon and later made a reservation after reading reviews on yelp and trip advisor. Maria (owner) greeted us at the front door. The food was good, and the portions were extremely generous. The only negative was our waiter who was a little rude and not attentive. I definitely would recommend Mont Blanc and just hope that you get a different waiter. Hopefully it was just an off night for him. I did not tell Maria when we left even though she thanked us for coming and asked about our meal. I would eat here again on another trip to New York.

    We were looking for a European restaurant that had Schnitzel and Spaetzle. This place delivered in a wonderful way. The staff was very attentive and actually European. There's a bar and several small tables and a few larger seating areas in the front. The atmosphere was dim and quiet with nice paintings and a mural on the ceiling. We especially liked the framed thermostat by our seats. The bread and butter was very good. I got the special Oktoberfest Jager Schnitzel. It was very good and the Spaetzle was perfect. I would definitely go back and recommend it for a reminder of Europe and a restaurant with a little character.

    A friend who is a "foodie" recommended Mont Blanc as a theatre district dining experience before going on to a play. Their recommendation was "spot on" and the entire dining experience was great! We arrived on time for our "pre-theater" reservation and were immediately seated. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. The drinks and the dinner were served without any problems and the quality of each was top notch. The restaurant is a theater district gem. We shall return.

    This was our first visit to Mont Blanc and despite the good reviews, our foursome approached the evening dinner with caution. After dinner the 4 of us agreed the restaurant, in particular Marie, exceeded our expectations in every way! The menu choices were extensive, the eye and taste appeal were exciting, the food delicious and the service was friendly, helpful and prompt. If we lived closer we would be regulars but must content ourselves with returning on our periodic visits to NYC.

    This restaurant brought us back to Bavaria and we enjoyed it immensely. I took my Grandfather here for the German cuisine. He ordered the Sauerbraten, which reminded him of a dish his mother made. I enjoyed the Beef Goulash. We dined pre-theatre. If you don't mind a 10 min walk and you love German/Swiss cuisine this is the venue for you. Maria will take very good care of you!

    Marie's is my favorite NYC Theatre dining experience. Anytime friends and family come to visit, I call Marie's for the best food and dining experience. I even have friends who visit from California annually and the first place they want to go is to Marie's! The restaurant has a fantastic Fixed Menu for theatre goers. No worries because you will make the curtain call. Friendly place, homemade delicious food and Marie is there to say hello. The best.

    We had an excellent, Swiss-themed, pre-theater meal at Mont Blanc. The staff was extremely accommodating, turning the AC on immediately upon request and mindful of our theater curtain. Everyone was pleasant and the service efficient, but not rushed. The rosti potatoes were to die for as well as the just right veal sausage with a brilliant Swiss mustard: Thomy. If you like this cuisine (and we certainly do) Mont Blanc is a find.

    You are sure to have a great meal at a very reasonable price at Montblanc. I always bring out-of-town friends here, and they consistently tell me that they went there one more time before leaving New York. I am not sure what "foodie" means, but I know I love a great dinner, and you will be sure to have one here. The owner is so cordial. They have a prix fixe menu or you can order a la carte. Everything is delicious.

    The restaurant lost our reservation, so they offered we could sit outside or wait as a walk-in. Service was unattentive at best. The drinks we ordered were never served but still managed to make it onto the bill. The food was fine but unmemorable. We will not be returning to this restaurant.

    We enjoyed our meal and the attentive service. I had Veal Cordon Bleu, and my husband had calves liver & onions which came with a large portion of hash brown like potatoes; both were very good and such large portions, we took some back for another small meal. The cost of the entree includes a salad, potatoes and vegetable which is unique in this city. I liked their Sangria, and we both enjoyed the flour-less chocolate cake. It is a cozy pleasant restaurant, convenient to the theaters.

    TheGourmetVIP
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    Interior, menu, presentation, and food composition are ripe for modernization. The food itself was well cooked, the filet was a great cut and top quality, but the setting (from the menus that are falling apart to the outdate interior) require an urgent upgrade. I would also transform some of the classic Swiss dishes into the 21 century and I would avoid serving burned Roesti.

    The restaurant has probably seen better days, everything looked a little tired. The food was very good, and the service was super attentive. We were there for a pre theatre dinner, and they were almost too brisk in bringing and removing dishes. In our mid 50s, we were the younger guests the night we were there. I would return, but only when I really need a Swiss fix.
