    Our experience was great. Everything that we ordered was soo good. We ordered the onion soup (very hot, soo flavorful, cheese was just right), asparagus soup (very unique, very nice), tuna tartare (very generous portion), salade d'endives (very refreshing, altho the blue cheese was a little too overpowering for my taste), cantine burger (burger done just right) and had a pink natural fresh squeezed drink (no extra sugar added, I could tell the freshness of the ingredients). Overall it was a but pricey, but pretty healthy, didn't feel stuffed coming out even tho we ordered lots of food for two. Must go back!

    We were the only people in the restaurant, yet service was very slow. We had a cracked water glass, a dirty spoon, and tea that had been sitting around for much too long. The food was average. I will not be returning.

    Drinks were fine, food was a notch above ordinary, setting was delightful. Cool barkeep and charming French bus boy. Wait person was kind and helpful but so American it makes you wanna salute. She seemed to be in the wrong bistro. Great Groupon place, otherwise kinda average.

    It's located in the lobby of the hotel but the scene and ambience is still pretty cool. Candle-lit with good background music thats loud enough to keep out other parties. Food was really good. Asparagus soup was delicious, white and green varieties together. Veal was great. Service was amazing. Waiter was really helpful, water was brought by carafe; wine glass was always kept full.

    I saw the Pulsd deal for $29 for two entrees and a bottle of wine. I went with my boyfriend, and we noted first off that the place, lit up with tiny candles, seemed like a romantic oasis in its rather nondescript surroundings - a pleasant surprise, as the website photos taken in daytime are a little too modern-minimalistic. The place definitely picks up ambiance at night. The food is excellent, especially at that price. We had one steak and one loup de mer (bass), which looked like a steak, and you just can't go wrong with a bottle of Cote du Rhone! On our own, we ordered a lemon cheesecake for dessert and got a very generous portion of a delicious dessert! The service, too, was excellent. We definitely want to come back.

    Went for Mother's Day brunch, food was excellent again. Service wasn't as good as the first time I went, it looked like they may have been understaffed. Still, a very nice time and I intend to go back. The food is amazing, the prices range from usual Manhattan prices to very reasonable.

    Food was great - clean French flavors, easy pick when shopping in Soho or wandering around Nolita. The only thing is that the service is subpar - I was disappointed and surprised that the "rude NYC waitress" still exists - makes the place feel dated and I will not be coming back! The food is not memorable enough to make me come back. Too many good, friendly restaurants in NYC.

    The spot was great, as it was slightly below street level but had huge windows all around that made for great people watching. They all dressed 80's and played 80's music which was fun. The food was very good, but they only gave 1 egg with their brunch special of the day. I also enjoyed the unlimited mimosas, and the fact that they were well made.

    I keep going to this place and have enjoyed my experience each time. Service is good and gracious. Modern and comfortable decor. Really good food and good reasonably priced wine list. I get the Steak Frites and have enjoyed it very much twice now. My sister and I liked it more than Balthazar's Steak Frites! No kidding. My friend liked the steak very much as well. This place is well located and has an interesting view, since it's got two walls of windows that are situated slightly below the lively street level scene of Kenmare Street. Oddly this makes it more theatrical and yet, at the same time, less hectic. Anyway - it's turning into a favorite of mine in the area.

    A sleek modern restaurant in the base of a hotel. There were a number of French staff to help with the authenticity of the French experience, the all inclusive drinks were well made but I was disappointed that they wouldn't offer me a screwdriver rather than a bloody Mary, as all the components were covered by the drinks offered. The food was well made and I would go again.

    We had a Pulsd deal for dinner for two. It came with an entree for each person and a bottle of wine. It was perfect! Not sure if it was the weather (rainy) but we pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves! Our waitress was super kind and helpful. The food came out in a good amount of time and was pretty tasty. I had the steak frites and my mother had the branzino. The waitress was attentive and didn't rush us to finish our bottle of wine even though our food was done. Loved it!

    To preface, my friends and I bought a Pulsd deal for a bottomless brunch. I don't think the restaurant was ready to handle the deal they offered. Our group was fairly large (10 people) and the restaurant would not allow us all to sit together. My table had good service and we liked our server. However, the other table of our group had a different server and a different experience. They were not allowed to order different drinks (the deal included mimosas, bellinis, and bloody marys - HATE when places won't give you just champagne, too much orange juice hurts my stomach.) We also finished our meals before the other table had even received their orders. The eggs florentine was good, and I appreciate that it came with greens and potatoes.

    The server who waited on us, brought over two mimosas as we sat down and said "a courtesy". I thought that was nice. We finished and at check time, the two mimosas were on the bill. Since we actually drank one of them, I figured ok, I will pay for both, but I won't leave a tip. The server pitched a fit saying that foreigners don't know how to tip. I proceeded to explain that if he wanted a tip he should remove the mimosas from the bill. He acted super surprised and then removed them. After that I added a tip. Not a big deal, but I can imagine a lot of people falling for this type of scam. It felt like one to me. Plus you are on a date, so you don't want to look cheap, etc, etc, it is a scam, plain and simple.
