Butternut squash ravioli dish was very good. The jumbo lump crab cakes were decent but not like Baltimore crab cakes that are truly amazing; there were no lumps of crabs, just mixed in with the rest of the fillings.

2/3 of our dishes arrived cold & the other one was an undercooked egg white omelette. The only good part of this meal was the free bread & butter

Lunch with a friend seated outdoors (street side shelter). I had mergueze sausage sandwich, which was ok, probably wouldn’t order again. He had broiled fish, said it was very good. My pâté first course was quite good. Service was very good, although there were few customers so can’t tell what it would be like when crowded. All in all a simple, more than adequate French lunch in Soho. No real street parking though; had to use a nearby garage.

Our "go to" restaurant when visiting our daughter. The menu is extensive and the brunch is wonderful. Whether you want a sandwich or a full course meal this French bistro is perfect. I love the fact they offer steak tartar and duck confit - two of my favorite dishes.

It is my husband and I, favorite NYC French Restaurant, outside of Paris. The food was, as expected, incredibly delicious. The Foie Gras is literally to die for!
I had for the first time ever, “Stuffed Quail” in a bed of warm spinach and it was truly unbelievable. The taste and the presentation was absolutely mesmerizing!
My husband had Creekstone Farms Steak Au Poivre, and it was delicious as well. The steak sauce is truly magnificent!
The staff is super friendly and offers great and knowledgeable recommendations/suggestions.
We are so much looking forward to dining again there!

We went the weekend indoor dining reopened in the city. We felt very comfortable with the spacing and measures taken to support the covid restrictions. The food was absolutely delicious. The service was attentive without being pushy. There was a beautiful red rose at each table. The restaurant is cozy and intimate. We will definitely be returning for another romantic, delicious dinner.

Our brunch was wonderful on many levels. The seating was safe, distant and had heaters. Cocktails were perfect. Service was great. I had tuna nicoise which was perfect. My daughter had onion soup (and I understand why almost everyone in the restaurant ordered that-- and crab cakes. Her boyfriend had the parsnip soup which was yummy and eggs Benedict. All in all, I found this restaurant because of the covid safety measures, I cannot wait to come back and try more things on the menu. Wonderful meal !!

Wonderful brunch with solid (albeit a bit small) Bloody Marys. Outdoor seating works well, but the heaters weren't working when we were there, which was very unfortunate. Also, prices on the menu are higher than they are online. Understandable nowadays. I would definitely go back!

Had an amazing evening here. My girlfriend loves french onion soup and Bistro Les Amis exceeded her hopes for that dish. Had the steak frites and the steak was perfectly cooked. Wonderful wait staff, wonderful atmosphere despite having to move everything outside. Will absolutely be coming back many times.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC! The best food, always consistent, great servers who have been there forever so I know that are treated well. Roy and Syed run the place perfectly and always make me feel valued and at home with friends! Please visit and try the croque madame - best in the world including Paris!
