Vibrant French bistro in Chelsea. It does not try to be anything that it is not: Some outdoor seating.

A great French bistro and place to meet friends. The food is great, the staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is very cozy. A gem in the middle of Chelsea, well-worth checking out.

The escargot was phenomenal.
The escargot was phenomenal. Gets more crowded the later you dine, and a bit loud but extremely excellent dining experience.

A very good French place in the center of it all in Chelsea. Salads were particularly well made and I'm sure I'll return for the fried artichoke one.

Don't Come Early
We made a reservation through Open Table for 4:30pm in order to get to a 6pm appointment. Upon arrival we were informed that they did NOT serve until 5pm. Fortunately, we were able to order a glass of wine and then a light supper at 5 and make our class at the Institute of Culinary Education by 6. The food and service were great, just be aware of the serving hours!

very good food friendly service.
very good food friendly service. a bit too noisy inside for quiet conversation (loud music plus loud talk)
outside better, but it was very rainy.
ideal for lunch when it is very quiet

Le Singe Vert
Le Singe Vert provides a very authentic French bistro experience. I lived in Paris for a year and have to admit that LSV always transports me from Chelsea back to the Marais. Mind blowing French food? Non. But pleasant and pretty authentic? Oui.

French Bistro in Chelsea
May partner & I celebrated an important event at Le Singe Vert. This is a place we had both walked past many times, but it is a little outside our normal orbit of places to eat out. I am very glad we finally have tried this place. Service was OK, not stunning; better than some reviewers have complained about for this place. The food was superb. I had a wonderful fried artichoke heart and arugula salad, which was very nicely done. My partner had the escargot, which were perfectly done. Main course was salmon served with a very flavorful Mediterranean sauce, including the occasional surprising and delightful note of citrus. My partner's pork cutlet with frisee salad was also wonderfully done. We will be back.

First time there, I love it
I had a dinner at singe vert, last Thursday night with few friends, and we loved it !!! We enjoyed it !!! the food was excellent ( the foie gras, escargots, charcuterie plate, fillet mignon, very good wine )
The singer at the bar was pretty talented and we all had the feeling we were in Paris !!!
The waiter ( french ) was very friendly and the service, even slow sometimes ( the restaurant was full), was good...
I will come back for sure !!! Thank you cedric for the experience !!!

Perfect ! Never desappointed
Perfect romantic diner. The food was delicious : we started with some oysters to share, then I had "Les Escargots " as anappetizer and "la Raie au beurre noir" (my favorite entree). the warm apple tart is terrific (i loved it)
Furthemore, the service was above my expectations: Cedric, the manager diligently welcomed and accompanied us to our table and Victor, the server was charming, efficient and provided us with good advices to choose the wine and the food.
I will, for sure, go back

French Bistrot on Avenue Sept
Just love Le Singe Vert! Have been dining here for more than 10 years and always introduce friends to it. The food is authentic bistro food from Paris. The best salade frisée and raie (skate) this side of the Atlantic. Wines are more than reasonable -- not notable but definitely serviceable. And the servers -- just the perfect French accent and attention to detail I love!! And all have a sense of humor.

this was our second time. We ate outside both times. lovely. It seemed too noisy inside even at 10am but we are old folks.
the crab cakes appetizer- special that night was excellent.

This was always on my list to try. Took a friend for his b-day and had a great time. Service was excellent, and my food was superb. Very enjoyable ambience. Not crowded on a Sunday night.

It was a weekday night and I met my friends after dance rehearsal. We had a table reserved and it was the perfect spot for catching up over a glass of wine, grilled trout and a shrimp over risotto dish which was beautifully arranged. The wait staff were friendly and not intrusive. Two of my friends had just arrived from Paris and they said the food was as if they were still on the Champs Elysses!
We are definitely going back!!!

What a find - French food
What a find - French food on the way to the Irish Rep. I am just back from Paris and this is really an authentic bistro. I would travel downtown to go again. Bon!

The Steak Tartare was amongst the best I've had in a while. I had the smaller portion, and it could have easily been an entry size. I was excited to order the mussels, but I was disappointed by their size - they were very small inside the shell. The broth was delicious. Great wine list and very nice ambience - it was chily outside, but felt very warm and cozy inside. Can't wait to go again!

Nice French bistro
Good food, well prepared Parisian/French classics. We had a nice country pate at the bar and then a great steak frites -- cooked perfectly -- and wonderful cassoulet. Warm service without being cloying. A little pricey -- my only complaint!

Reminds me of Paris
With a real French waiter and good French style food plus salads and lighter fare, this place is vaut le voyage. I've never been in the evening but at lunch time it is pleasantly full without being crowded and it's QUIET, which is so hard to find these days! Nice service, nice atmosphere, an all round good experience. I took a friend there who lives in Paris and he said the filet mignon he had was as good as at home, so that's high praise!

Paris in Chelsea
A real French bistro -- the foo, the wine, the service, the ambience. Have been coming here for over 10 years and I can always rely on it. The salade nicoise was as it should be with tuna perfectly cooked. For dinner I usually get the skate, my favorite, and it is always the same -- almost like Groundhog Day! I walked in before they opened and instead of being told to wait or come back, I was shown to my table, offered water and made to feel welcome warmly! What a plaisir!!

authentic French bistro
We came at singe vert, as usual , for dinner . A perfect Monday night, atmosphere very cozy and romantic , the band in the restaurant was a big plus ! We tried the Beaujolais prix fixe ... AMAZING!!! The manager recommended to have ' Le coq au vin '. It was perfect !!! The wine also !! We will come back for sure ...

Paris in Chelsea
An authentic Parisian bistro from the French servers to the typical choices -- steak tartare with frites, salade nicoise, raie in brown butter with capers. And the wines are just those you would get in Paris to go with theses meals. Good French bread, not fake and real butter! One of my favorite go to places for lunch or dinner.
