My wife and I went there on
My wife and I went there on Thursday at 6:30pm.
I was looking for a new place to eat and we were very pleased with la Tarte Flambee.
Could not stop ordering the lammekueches : tradionnelle, munster and biquette.
We tried the beef tourte marianne (meatloaf wrapped in push pastry).
I will be back!

The tarte's the thing
The place is tattered and worn--banquettes torn, décor scruffy--but the tarte flambee is as good as anything in Alsace that we have eaten and the service is impeccable and pleasant. It's only 2 blocks from the 92nd Street Y and this very convenient, but not classy so patrons should be forewarned (which we were not.) I'd return for sure.

Best tartes flambées in town!
It's a charming little restaurant! Very simple décor but warm service and delicious tartes flambées. Just like being in Alsace!!!

This was a great find! I came here with 5 colleagues for a late dinner after a book signing, and we had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and the servers were helpful and courteous. It's a great local spot and I will definitely go back the next time I find myself in the neighborhood.

VERY pleasant experience here.
Food: delicious! They are known for their tarts for a reason. The original gruyere as well as the one with munster cheese are outstanding. It's light, crispy and so flavorful. The beet salad appetizer is highly recommended WITH the goat cheese! Meat pie entree and salmon entree were delicious. They also have a lovely beer selection!
Service was perfect. The waiter recommended his favorite dishes and really made us feel like locals.
Ambiance was lovely. The space is a bit small so it may feel a bit crowded especially with how popular the place is but it's all worth it!

Strasbourg in NYC!
The real deal! Authentic and delicious, and also good Alsatian beer and wine, too.

nice and moderately priced
This is a small restaurant (I counted 24 seats), so reservations are a good idea any time. The server was very laid back and let us order one tart at first with the option for another. The food comes out quickly, so we didn't wait long for our second one. The salad was nothing special, but both tarts were very good, with paper-thin crusts. I also appreciated the wines available in multiple sizes (glass, half-carafe, etc.). It's rare to find an Alsatian pinot gris by the glass.

A touch of France
This tiny restaurant was a delightful spot for lunch. At 2pm, it was still full with diners who embraced the relaxed atmosphere by dining, chatting, reading and enjoying well prepared fresh food. My husband had the gazpacho and I enjoyed a tarte with gruyere cheese. The tarte was a treat, crispy, tasty, light - just perfect and the soup felt like it was made on the spot. The service was wonderful and the coffee, divine.

This modest little hole in the wall specializes in its homonymous "tarte flambee," if a crepe and a pizza had a baby it's be this. Great for what it is.

Such a great experience -
Such a great experience - the "flammies" were very good - we tried the salmon and leek, the muenster, and the spicy chicken! For dessert, we had the banana split and brandy flammies -both a perfect way to end the meal!

Best place for tarte flambée
Love this place.
Every tarte flambee they have is delicious and they have an all you can eat menu. The 2 chefs are really nice and can teach you everything about this dish.
This is a really good place to discover signature dishes of Alsace.

A taste of Alsacien home
I went to Strasbourg a few years back and one of my fondest memories was the delicious Tarte Flambee that can only be found there. Along with that were the wines that just can't be found here in the US. When my friend travelled here from Alsace and told me he found a traditional tarte flambee, I instantly said I had to try it. I am so glad I did because I have not been disappointed with the quality of the food and the service. I brought friends who never tried the food as well and they were very pleased as well. I can say that I will definitely come back here regularly because their specials are great, the wines are tasty and they even offer meals that are well put together. Hands down one of my favorite places to go to.

My wife and I discovered this place a few months ago and have adored it ever since. The Flammenkuchen served here are a combiantion of fancy treat and comfort food. The quality is consistent, each Flammy I've eaten has been cooked perfectly, the ingredients tasting fresh and wonderful. The variety of salads is great, with the roasted beet salad being my wife's favorite. Their small wine list is still wonderfully chosen; the wine really goes with the Alsatian cuisine.
The service here is beyond friendly, it's welcoming, attentive, and human. I recommend this place to anyone that like's a restaurant that focuses on serving great food in a casual, homey atmosphere of Alsace.

Les tartes flambees sont succulentes; comme a la maison et on est toujours tres bien aqueuillis
C est un plaisir de manger a la tarte flambee!

Food is exceptionally good (all tartes!) and the service attentive. Looking forward to returning and trying other items on the menu. Also worth noting, this is one of many restaurants currently affected by the 2nd avenue line construction, our patronage is crucial for these small businesses. I encourage everyone to stop by.

Always a pleasure to go to
Always a pleasure to go to "la tarte flambée" ... The food is good as in Alsace ... And the service is very friendly.

Nice neighborhood find
The team at Tarte Flambee is charming and lovely. The food was very good and reasonable. They just need to work on kitchen management so the food is ready to come out to the dining room. That said we will be going back and bringing friends.. just hoping the wait for our food isn't so long next time!

My daughter lives in UES -- so I was on the lookout for reasonably priced highly rated options in her neighborhood for our visit, and found this on Open Table. We had a GREAT meal. Between the 4 of us - we each ordered a soup or a salad, then we split two flammies, gruyere and wild mushroom. We ended with the calvos flammie - flambe. An excellent meal. Service was very good, and very helpful to explain the menu options. Wine and beer choices were good.

A taste of provincial France
Great value for money, authentic food from the Alsace region of France. Small but good selection of wines.
Vaut le deplacement ! Bravo !

I'm so happy I discovered this place. The restaurant is small and cozy. The peole who work there are also very helpful and nice. And the food is just so yummy. A flambee is like a really thin pizza.Try the flambee with honey, goat cheese and bacon. The spicy one with jalapenos and ground beef is also very flavorful. This place is definitely worth revisiting.

Many thanks to this restaurant! Have been several times and each time is a treat.
The last time I was visiting with a friend and I have had nearly everything on the menu so I asked the owner to just pick a few different flammies for us and prepare them how he would like them. He did not steer us wrong. Perfect. Looking forward to a return soon!

My friend and I lived in Alsace
My friend and I lived in Alsace for a few months and since then we've really missed tarte flambee. We loved the ambiance in this little restaurant and the excellent tarte flambee that brought us back to Alsace. The servers are great too.

Delicious and traditional, these tartes are fantastic!

A Bit of Alsace in NYC
When I worked in Alsace many years ago, I discovered Tarte Flambée and fell in love with this particularly Alsatian treat. When I stumbled upon La Tarte Flambée, I was delighted to be able to get this wonderful dish here in NY. I have been back several times and it is consistently wonderful! The service is also wonderful! Definitely recommend La Tarte Flambée to everyone! If you have had Tarte Flambée before, you will love their authentically made tart and if you haven't, you are in for a treat that will have you coming back for more :)
