We were looking for a suitable
We were looking for a suitable restaurant to bring relatives from out of town and wanted a place with a variety of dining options and not too noisy, since conversation would be a priority. Bistro Le Steak fit the bill. We were a party of 6 and all chose different entrees and desserts. Everyone was delighted with their choice. The noise level and general ambiance were very conducive to pleasant conversation and overall comfort. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable which added to our experience. I look forward to our next visit to Bistro Le Steak and trying new selections from the menu.

Forty years ago my husband
Forty years ago my husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary in a NYC restaurant called "Le Steak" so we decided to try the 41st anniversary here. We inquired whether this restaurant was the same but apparently is no longer. The original one served only steak! We had a nice, leisurely meal. My arugula/pear salad was fresh and very good. Our steaks with "frites" were perfectly cooked and quite delicious. The frites were authentic (although I think the oil they were cooked in was a little old). We shared profiteroles for dessert..alas, the pastry was tough but the chocolate sauce very good. All in all we enjoyed ourselves very much. Prices were reasonable. We had a very early reservation so the restaurant was very quiet.

overall, this place is worth tryin.
We stepped in to the restaurant. Pretty austere interior welcomed us. Tables were neatly prepared. "Pretty nice", we murmured.
However, buns were cold and clumsily cut. So in the beginning, we didn't really have a positive premonition for the upcoming steaks.
ordered sirloins were finally served with mashed potato on the side. The steaks were cooked well. We really enjoyed the taste. We really liked it.
Regarding the service, it's ok place. i mean, they put smiles at all time and knew what they were doing. I was fairly satisfied in that department.
In short, this place is worth trying. looking for an ok steak place in UES? better not swipe off the name of this place.

Excellent food, and quiet!
I've been here a number of times now and have never had anything that wasn't excellent. Beef (the filet is wonderful), seafood (try the scallops), salads (grilled vegetable salad has been great twice). Combine the food with the fact that it's quiet, and you get a favorite spot of mine.

Perhaps the least expensive
Perhaps the least expensive real Rib Eye steak in NYC. Its a few ounces smaller than most of the "big" steakhouses. But its tasty and its real steak. Pretty tasty, reasonable service, less than break the bank price. Cream spinach was also tasty. Plus you can get it steamed or sauteed in garlic and oil if you want. Good bang for your buck here. I'll go back.

If you are in the mood for steak the 10oz natural sirloin is good if not better than many more notable steak establishments. It was delicious done perfectly as were the fries, and the cream spinach side order. You felt like you got what you paid for. The service could have been a bit more pleasant but overall a very good dining experience...

Why NYC is Great!
Love it! Used to come all the time when I lived in town. Now back for a visit and it was every bit as good as I remember. House salad and top end steak frites with their sauce is the best!

My third trip to Bistro Le
My third trip to Bistro Le Steak. This time I went with the house hamburger. I can't say I tasted the veggies that they mix in with the beef, but it was tasty. So where the onion rings. The salad dressing seems to be unique to BLS and its almost worth going there for the dressing alone!
I will make a minor complaint about the cocktails at the bar. This is the third time they have omitted the garnish from my cocktail. All Manhattans. Despite my asking for it..Don't understand that.
Service seemed a notch better than the last two times I was there. As for noise level, its not a noisy place, but I think, in the main room, sound travels very well. I could hear the two couples at the table across the aisle from me discussing their golf games.

We love this place. We stumbled
We love this place. We stumbled into it one night when the subway was packed and we couldn't get a cab downtown. Good, reliable French fare, perfectly cooked steak/frites, cold martinis, yummy chocolate mousse, decent Cotes du Rhone by the glass. And if you can get a table by the windows to people watch, or sit at the bar for the martini, all the better.

Haven't had dinner at Bistro Le Steak in about 2 years. Thought the food was very well done especially any dish that had broth or sause like mussels and beef bourgoine. will go back more regularly.

When you REALLY need a decent meal
Head for Bistro Le Steak for comfortable, pleasant dinner. Menu is varied enough to suit all moods, and there are quiet spots even if the restaurant is busy. Prices moderate and staff always pleasant. This is an easy place to relax with friends or family-it's even possible to have a conversation without needing a Master's Degree in lip-reading!

Very good, if slightly overpriced
A good neighborhood bistro, but the prices are a bit high for that level. In particular, the wine list is overpriced; for bistro food, there should be some simple table wines that are more affordable. That said, this is a comfortable and reasonably quiet place to get a good traditional French bistro meal.
