Antibes Bistro serves elegantly simple French fare, accented with bold Mediterranean spices, in a charming and casual atmosphere.

The bar features spirited spins on classic cocktails, an international beer selection and a well curated vintage wine list with an extensive offering of French reds.

Rustic chandeliers and distressed-brass oil lamps cast a warm, low light across the exposed brick walls of the intimate dining room. Melodic jazz animates the ambiance, with upbeat and airy performances by local musicians on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 7:30-10:30pm.
Antibes Bistro is dedicated to the cultivation of valued experiences, evidenced by the inviting, social atmosphere and faithful service.

Whether you’re saying cheers with a cocktail at the bare wood bar or chatting over savory plates, Antibes Bistro offers a casual and cultural oasis in the Lower East Side.

We arrived on time for our reservation (7pm) to find the place dark and devoid of life! Sitting On the steps at the next building were two people we asked if they knew anything about the restaurant being closed. Well, they were the musicians that had been hired for the evening
To play at Antibes. The were making calls and checking the website for a clue of what had happened, to no avail. I felt very bad for them , we could find another place to eat, but they were out a nights pay. So, I have nothing good to say about this restaurant!

When we arrived at the restaurant, there was a note on the door stating that the restaurant was closed all week for maintenance. Someone came the door and shooed us away. We had to find another restaurant quickly as we had tickets for a show at 7 p.m. Since I went to the restaurant's website to check on the menu, there was no notice that it would not be open for the entire week.

Not enough wait staff working at all for a Saturday night! Service was a bit slow and the male waiter seemed irritated by having to wait on so many groups at once. Online menu does not match menu at the restaurant (prices, entree names, etc.), and menu at the restaurant did not give an accurate description of some of the items (ex: grilled jumbo shrimp appetizer is actually small cocktail shrimp). Would go back again for dinner, but not with more than two people.

There were two other people in the restaurant besides my friend and me and waitress wouldn't turn down the very loud distracting music. When we asked nicely she gave us an attitude. The water bottle had something floaty inside and we asked for fresh bottle and glasses and again, gave us an attitude. She didn't check on us much and we had get up ourselves to ask for the bill. Will never come back.

Highly recommend Antibes Bistro - delicious! Not busy on a Monday night but very well decorated, cozy, and hosted a live guitarist. Food was 10/10: the asparagus appetizer was spectacular, the branzino fresh and tasty, and the bread pudding delicious. Very home-y spot, great for a date or a low-key get together.

After hearing about and reading reviews on French restaurants in NYC, I decided that we should try Antibes Bistro. We've been to and enjoyed Matisse (NYC) ,Le Canard Enchaine (Kingston, NY) as well as others which may or may not have survived over the years. Without a doubt, the food here is very good. Notable dishes include the Seared Foie Gras, Roquefort & Poached Pear Salad, Guinness Braised Short Ribs, and the Coriander Crusted Salmon. The Short Ribs were a tiny bit too well done but the salmon was perfect at medium. service was very good but the Bistro was very warm and you could not feel the AC anywhere in the front of the restaurants. Towards the back and against the far wall, it was quite a different story. Menu is definitely very limited but what they do, they do well. Also serving French cuisine with a Mediterranean slant (tahini and Lamb Kufta inclusions on the menu) makes for a unique experience. Note though the beer selection is limited but even more so when they only had three options available (8 choices but alas 5 sold out)> Wine list was a little better but still a short list but thankfully cocktails/Whisky/Cognac/Calvados/Armagnac were nicely stocked. Also the bar area is definitely an option but please note that the Bistro is very small and the bar maybe can accommodate less than 10 people.

From a pricing/value perspective, Antibes is a little on the expensive side for a french restaurant in that section of NYC.

All in All, a very pleasant experience and we will be back .... Definitely recommended

This place was vacant. We were the only people there except for the flies. They ran out of coffee for brunch and several items on the menu. Food was below average but staff was really nice.

The lamb was very good, but the risotto wasn't, at all. While the lamb had a really good soft meat, the rusotto tasted like rice on water.
Also, the waitress kept messing up our order, she was unable to remember the four dishes we ordered.

This Very unusual evening hosted 2 big celebratory groups - so Unusually LOUD and raucous - Not our wish/need - but staff Very helpful and accommodating; wine & food were good. It's a lovely place. Try for a more lucky evening!

The food portions are ridiculously small. We ordered the beet "salad" and, I kid you not, it came with the equivalent of ONE beet cut in pieces and ONE tiny segment of orange. For $13. And it didn't taste any differently than if I (or anyone, really) would prepare it at home. Never going there again.

It looks like a French provincial farmhouse - casual and rustic but candlelit and romantic. Food was delicious, but portions quite small ( which I like, but my dinner companions wanted more) - Lovely service - friendly and relaxed. Little live jazz was nice, but a bit loud for dinner conversation. I really enjoyed our evening and will return.
