Always followed Christian
We have always followed Christian in New York; first at La Celebrities, then at Lespinasse and now at La Mangeoire. He is our favorite chef. We hope to continue making his restaurant regular stop in New York.

Wonderful, patient, helpful service. The bread is top notch as is the chicken and fries. The place, however, is expensive.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The beauty and sophistication of the food was outstanding, bringing familiar "rustic" French dishes to an exceptional level.

Always great food, ambience, & svc
Le Mangeoire comes through every time with very good food, ambience, and excellent service. This is not easy to do, but they manage to provide enough variety on the menu as well, so that you can experiment with different choices and be highly satisfied.

Good Food and very friendly service
We were early with an extra guest for our original reservation but was still promptly serviced. We were dining with out-of-town guest and they were surprisingly pleased with dinner quality and service for a neighborhood restaurant. I will highly recommend it.

A little of France in NY
It's been twice I've been to La Mangeoire in 2 weeks. This time, it was for my birthday with my husbands and my kids. Waiters are really nice, professionnal. They do they best to make you enjoy your party. The owner is a very kind gentleman who can advise the best wine for your taste. The food is delicious. We love to start with the "Planche Campagnarde" displaying different kinds of pâtés and rillette. You can take meet or fish; everything is home cooked with fresh products. Treat yourself with delightful dessert : profiteroles, tartes abricots or just café gourmand.

My fish dish was possibly the best I have ever had in a long and happy life of good meals.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
La Mangeoire strikes again -good!
the seasonal soup of the day - fresh cold tomato - was one of the best soups i ever had and i just love teh appetizer plate that comes before you even order - with the olives, olive oil and anchovy paste - that and the decor and you can easily imagine that you are in Provence - and the welcome is always warm

Great French Country Coooking
Excellent food and service, close your eyes and your at your favorite restrauant in Provence. Conistently good. Same owners for years.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Onion soup was excellent. Perhaps as good as I have ever had. Scallops were good, if a little rare. Interesting dressing. Couq au Vin was ok. I added a little salt and pepper. We shared. Service was very good; waiters and staff very pleasant.
All in all a very enjoyable dinner. Not gourmet, but very good.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect meal, romantic atmosphere, one of the best chefs in the world.... Our meal was delicious!
I never knew how standard fair such as chicken or pork could be elevated to perfection by a master chef. I will be returning as often as I can for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We come back again and again
I have an office in the neighborhood and whenever colleagues come for regular meetings they ask to go back to La Mangeoire. We have eaten outside in the summer and in the cozy inside in the winter. The waiters are attentive and professional, without being intrusive. The food is both familiar and inventive. You feel as if you are in France. An attractive room, friendly people, wonderful, comforting food.

Provence on a whim
Stopped in this restaurant on a whim to try something new and had a wonderful Provencal French dining experience. From the decor to the wonderful service and food, we felt like we were in French country home for dinner.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
You will never be disappointed at this 2nd ave treasure. As good as any spot in Paris.

Lunch then Dinner
We happened upon this restaurant while walking around midtown. We looked at the menu and said "yes" and sat down. So, so glad we said yes! We knew it was going to be amazing when the patrons beside us spoke French to waiter, who of course replied in French. My husband and I had the "Roasted Chicken with Boston Lettuce", is was phenomenal. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing, it reminded us of the European way of eating, relaxed and enjoyable. The meal was so fantastic that before we got up to leave, I made a reservation for dinner the following night. Which was fabulous! We had added this gem to our "must visit" list when we come back to NYC.

Oasis in the City
This restaurant was a wonderful find. The food was excellent, the wine selection whilst not extensive provides an excellent range and the service was faultless if not a little hurried. We both relied on the specials and we were not disappointed. Typically French but perhaps a little relaxed on the use of sharper ingredients, it was nonetheless very precise. The cheese selection is narrow but of excellent quality and served at just the right temperature. This little gem was a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of NYC.

yummy French food
We had a very pleasant experience. All three of us ordered from the dinner pre-fix menu. The choices were good and our food was delicious.

Delicious & Charming French Bistro
I have eaten at La Mangeoire many times over the last 5 years and it is a gem! I visit NYC about once a year and always include La Mangeoire in my dining plans. It is very conveniently located if you are staying at the Waldorf. Last visit I ordered the 5 course tasting menu I could not have been more pleased! Bravo!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great First Experience
We very much enjoyed our first visit to La Mangeoire. It was recommended by a "local." We pigged out and ate far too much, including dessert. The food (calves liver and mussels) was superb. The salads (guacamole, apple, gorgonzola) were creative and tasty. The accompaniments were nicely done. Wait staff were professional, timely and helpful. Owner/manager/maitre de was very pleasant and seated us a bit early. Bartender was cordial. Very nice dinner.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took a customer for dinner at La Mangeoire this week. The reason is that the customer requests french food and I wanted something quiet so that we could. As I have difficulties hearing when there is a lot of ambient noise I thought a smaller out of the way place was best.
Let me say that the food and wine were fantastic. The waitress was always there when we needed her but never hovering. Finally the place was very cozy but not overly done.
Both my colleague and the customer felt this restaurant was ideal for doing business as well as to take a loved one on a special date.

Great menu -- outstanding
Great menu -- outstanding roast chicken (but you have to get it with the French Fries!). Brunch is also outstanding.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
we found this restaurant again!
hooray. the roast chicken is all that's been reported and a simple Boston lettuce salad was so fresh it seemed the lettuce was just picked. the service was attentive and the rooms are pretty. will return!
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I don't think this is the "next best thing to eating in Provence" but the food is pretty authentic.
Decor is a little tired.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious and perfect!
Everything about this restaurant is perfect. We were seated immediately. Great service - friendly, just the right amount of attentiveness, and the timing was right on. The restaurant felt cozy and romantic. Very nice, but casual enough. The menu was classic, yet creative with good variety. We got the pork tenderloin over potatoes and veal stew.. Both perfect! I was afraid of the small portions, but it was the perfect amount to fill you up without wasting left overs. For dessert, the poached pears were excellent. Highly recommended!

After experiencing sub-par
After experiencing sub-par resturants in Queens, what a joy to finally dine at an authentic country french restaurant in Manhattan. Every dish we ordered was delectible. From the beer and wine to the dessert, we savored every minute. And I'm not kidding!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Wonderful French Comfort Food
You can taste Delouvriers hand in the kitchen. wonderful rabbit and roast chicken. And that wonderful coupe gasconne, plum ice-cream with armagnac, miam!

Perfect Birthday Dinner
Went to NYC this year for my 56th birthday. We arrived 15 minutes early but were promptly seated. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. Being a wine geek I was thrilled to see a well priced wine list focusing on French wine.
My wife had the French Onion soup, which is one of her benchmark dishes and said it was the best she ever had. I never order chicken out but had to try the Coq a Vin as I messed up this recipe earlier this year when attempting this at home and it was savory and cooked to perfection. A great evening, we never felt rushed, the service was great, the wine and food even better.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM

Met old friends for a lovely brunch. Service was great from beginning to end. We spent almost 3 hrs. In the restaurant and we weren't
rushed. Everyone enjoyed their food and we would return again in the future.
The waitstaff tended to our every request.

Best French Bistro food in New York
From the great value 3-Course Dinner Prix Fixe at $38.00 - try the Farm Raised, Roasted Chicken with perfect French Country Fries - to, among other truly authentic French Country classics, the Coq au Vin with (amazing) mashed potatoes, the tarragon & mustard sauce Rabbit with Cauliflower Gratin, or the Duck Leg Confit with lentil Stew, you'll be transported to France in the perfect little inn!
