    Everything you want a French bistro in NY to be . Good menu- I had Cow au Vin, Husband had Lamb Shank and we almost Haricot Vert Good wine by the glass selection , one of the better ones I've seen and they had Pastis which we love Service was warm and friendly My only note on restaurants in general is that alcohol prices are unnaturally high, we found this throughout New York when visiting . I Aware that Everything is more expensive these days but I happen to know the cost of wine and had a bit of sticker shock on what we were charged both here and other restaurants . Many were worse . Not sure if this needs to be in the review but it might be worth nothing if you are planning an number of dinners out. One simple aperitif like pastis and a glass of wine can easily come to $40 a person on your bill

    My guest and I enjoyed a lovely meal. Their wine selection is excellent and fairly priced. Service excellent as well. My guest had the cod with orange sauce special and loved the dish. I had the NZ lamb chops and they came rare as I requested. Relaxing ambiance and interesting music at a proper volume.

    This is the most consistently lovely restaurant in Soho. The staff and food are impeccable. Many staff are bilingual. All are knowledgeable and treat you like their favorite customer. The prices remain reasonable in spite of what’s going with the economy. I take all my friends there.

    Average food but good service. The Cobb salad was bland served with very dry chicken and limp lettuce. The onion tart with goat cheeze was dry and tasteless. The mimosa was the best thing along with people watching.

    One of my favourite places to eat when visiting Manhattan. I reserved a table there on my first and last night of my vacation. This was my first visit for five years due to Covid and some things have changed. On arrival, they seemed unaware of my reservation. It was quite chaotic. In the end I got the table I wanted, but that was down to me, rather than the restaurant following my reservation request. Prices have increased dramatically. I was surprised by how much, but since then I’ve noticed the same trend across the city. Dining out in NYC is no longer inexpensive for visitors. The food was great and the service terrific, but I think the restaurant is no longer quite as special and a wonderful find as it once was.

    We love this restaurant. Great vibe, mature service. All dishes VERY good except for penne with mussels and shrimp: 3 mussels and 3 shrimp for $33. We won’t be having that again. But that’s the sole exception to several otherwise enjoyable meals here. And we will return.

    What a charming restaurant. Cozy atmosphere with outdoor seating as well. We were given the option to be seated early and have our cocktails at the table. The woman who assisted us throughout the evening was so delightful and helpful and I would say the service was top notch. We were never rushed, we enjoyed delicious food and the atmosphere was lovely. A wonderful experience from start to finish. I would definitely recommend this Bistro! We will be back.

    Not sure why we thought this was going to be such a wonderful experience. Perhaps it’s the cc deposit requiring you to cancel 24th ahead. IDK but whatever it was, the food was absolutely tasteless. Steak au poive dull with sauce that had no taste. Onion soup very average and chicken average at best. Greens were quite good. Matre d a bit too talkative but staff eager to please. Would not go back.

    What a lovely place for lunch on the outskirts of Soho! The food is very good -- try the coq au vin and the mussels and especially the chocolate molten cake dessert -- and the atmosphere is cozy, with vintage French songs playing in the background, and a helpful and friendly staff. We're looking forward to returning soon.
