    After traveling to Switzerland for a month and loving every minute of it this spring, I was excited to finally find a Swiss restaurant as authentic as this in New York. The fondue was delicious, although you could taste some of the wine they had put in it at first. This is also a great place to get German and Austrian food as well.

    We picked this restaurant for a pre show dinner and we were very pleased. Our dining experience here was very close to the restaurants in the Alps ski resorts, with authentic dishes, great tasting food, and a warm, friendly service. It' was our first time in this restaurant and we'll go back soon!

    Food outstanding! Our server...not so much. He never introduced himself, never welcomed us to the restaurant, we felt like we were very rushed, cut us off while asking a question about the desserts. However, I would definitely recommend & go back based on the food, the hostess that greeted us & the ambiance. Great place to eat after seeing a show.

    Our experience at Mont Blanc, a theater district restaurant we'd never visited, was a delight. The restaurant has an old-fashioned charm, our greeting was warm and friendly, our server extremely helpful and the menu a delight. Three of us ordered specials, my husband chose a main course from the regular menu. All were good. Apple strudel was exceptional, if it's made on site the pastry chef is a master. We look forward to eating there again.

    this was our first time at this restaurant. I would highly recommended it.when you make a reservation through open table call the restaurant beforehand to make sure they have your reservation. Even though we got confirmation from open table when we got to the restaurant they said that they had no reservation in our name. though we were rushed a bit we would definitely go back for a more relaxing meal. We had their ghost cheese salad and appetizer suze crab cake. Their servings are plentiful.

    I had a great deal of trouble with the bill. Although I had the price fixed menu, I was charged for each item separately. It took two waiters four attempt to correct. Ultimately, I was charged for my higher priced desert (on teh fixed price menu) rather than the cheaper one my friend had that was a la carte. I can't be the first person to order the price fixed menu.

    We came here because they have a price fixed pre theatre menu. It is wonderful!. There is too much food to eat. The chicken marsala could be cut without a knife. My friend drank the broth the mussels came in. The snitzel is great. Then after all that we had the dessert. Excellent tiramisu, but everyone agreed the warm apple tart with vanilla ice cream which really looks more like a cake was the star of the night.

    We made our reservations through Open Table, arrived on time for a pre-theater dinner. We notified our waiter we would be going to the theater and there was never a lapse in service. Did not feel rushed but rather quietly attended to. We all had the special of the day and agreed it was outstanding. We love the location and feel it is one of the best restaurants in the theater district. A favorite!

    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.

    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.
