Service was excellent but food was mediocre. When a French bistro has bad onion soup, it's not a good sign. We won't be returning.

It's really so good to have a neighborhood restaurant like this!

The food is up to snuff, the service is perfect, and the ambiance to match.

They have great hamburgers!!

All told, recommend highly.

The waiter got things wrong- forgot one appetizer, forgot one drink, never asked if we needed anything. But the food was good, except a shrimp cocktail I should have known not to order in a bistro! icy-cold straightened shrimp- no curl to them at all, served on a bed of ice so they seemed to need defrosting. The escargots were so small we couldn't see one when it came out of the shell! - the size of a jumbo green pea. But the rib eye steak was a great piece of meat, the calves liver special was cooked beautifully,and the chocolate mousse came in a lovely martini glass. The prices are admirably fair for the neighborhood and the quality of the food. The wine of the day by the glass ($15) was supposedly Sancerre but I had to send it back- it was as sweet as a cheap cahrdonnay. The Pinto Grigio on the menu was jsut fine, thoguh.

If you're looking for an unassuming place with excellent French food, this is your place. The staff knows the product, they write everything down oh, and the owner is always around. I recommend this place highly

Nice option if you're in the area. Friendly, accommodating staff and really decent food. Extra points for willingness to turn down the music (which NO ONE was listening to).

Though we live on the west side, we come here to the best side at least twice a year.
Good food, great service and nice ambience with a moderate noise level make this one of our "go to" dining destinations.

We had a chicken ceasar salad which was tasteless and filet of sole almondine on spinach. The spinach was very dry and chewy. Overall I was disappointed.

Overall I would recommend this place. I would probably go back again. I dined with three other people and personally I was fine with the food I got. My two friends ordered ribeye steaks. And they were a bit fattier than they needed to be. One was undercooked. Mine was a little bit overcooked but otherwise fine. Excellent wine selection. Nice atmosphere. It was a little bit warm outside and it would have been nice if they had the AC on a little bit higher. Other than that I would go back.

We have been to Bistro Le Steak many times, and as usual, the food was excellent. Two of us had the Branzino, one had Halibut (both were the night's specials), and the fourth had a chicken dish; I forget which one but she said it was delicious. We felt a bit rushed, although there were several empty tables in our side porch window area. The waiter asked for our main course orders without asking if we would like to order drinks. We slowed him down, and ordered our drinks, but the main course orders appeared within seconds..this did not give us time to relaxed over our wine. Otherwise, we were very pleased, and will continue to return..perhaps directing the waitperson to take orders more graciously.

Prix fixe dinner at $42 included wine, appetizer, entree and dessert.
Food was good, as was the service.
It was a birthday celebration and the staff joined in enthusiastically.

I went with my steak loving friend. Be warned portions are large. Mozzarella and tomato salad delicious. Had the filet with creamed spinach. Steak was cooked perfectly. Creamed spinach was anything but bland, rich, buttery and creamy. Lovely cozy atmosphere. Very pleased.

Restaurant was a staple for me years ago at the old location and food is as good now as I remembered from back then. Only issue was AC was not working well enough. Love their house salad Dijon vinaigrette dressing although salad is only lettuce. Sirloin with Dijon dressing and fries delicious and sautéed spinach with garlic and oil was wonderful! Couldn’t fit desert but remembered that being great as well. Former mayor Bloomberg sighting which tells me if it is good for him it should be on every ones list!

A little disappointing. We had looked forward to eating here having spent a month living only a few blocks away. We did not eat outside, which might have made the ambiance a bit better. My wife had a very good filet mignon and my granddaughter a great burger. But I had the tuna tartare having been been assured that it was sashemi quality. In my opinion it was not. Neither the quality of the tuna nor the sauce served with it was particularly tasty. But then one might say I should not order tuna in a restaurant called Le Steak. So it may be my fault, but I will not particularly be interested in going back here again.

My husband and I savored another outstanding meal in our favorite restaurant on the east side. We were able to select a charming corner table, & our server was professional & efficient. My potato-crusted cod was fabulous, prepared uniquely, & I sent my compliments to the chef. My husband found his steak to be tender & delicious. Although we live out of state, we will return whenever we visit our family in Manhattan.

The food was tasty and well prepared although, perhaps because we three had ordered fish from the a la carte menu, it did not appear to be freshly caught, but rather frozen it was still fine. Two of us ordered deserts, which were delicious, and rhe wine was good, as well. Would recommend this as a great place for frequent dining, but not necessarily for very special occasions, if ultra refined or exotic cuisine is sought.The service was also efficient and the staff attentive and polite.
