This is a difficult review. We split an order of butternut squash ravioli as an appetizer. It was delicious. My duck main course was outstanding. Huge portion, cooked perfectly. However, my friend's pork chop was very, very fatty. With hindsight, he should have sent it back. He did mention it to the waiter who passed on his comments to the owner (?). The owner apologized profusely and took the pork chop off the bill. He said that this shouldn't have happened and would speak to the meat supplier. Very nice that he took the food off the bill but this should not have happened in the first place. The pork chop should have been checked before it was cooked and served. That's why I rated the food only three stars. Having said this, I would definitely go back.

Love the food and the very hospitable service! We were early for our reservation, but we were warmly greeted and seated immediately. I ordered the croque monsieur and was very quickly told I could have the madame version if i wished. That happens to be my favorite way and I was well pleased with the results!

I went with two friends for a late lunch on Saturday. I made reservation for outdoor table. We arrived on time and despite big crowd we were seated right away. The waiter was nice, helpful, and did not rush us. We got our lunch in timely manner and it was delicious. We were not rushed after lunch to leave and were given our receipt when we asked for. I eat in this restaurant many times before and it did not disappoint me now either.

Bistro Les Amis is a destination we try to visit every time we are in NY. It has the feel of a locals’ restaurant with superior food. We eaten here 7 or 8 times and have been pleased every time. The only difficulty is finding a parking space but we’ll put up with that for such a excellent eatery. In particular, the sticky toffee pudding dessert was the best we’ve ever eaten!

If you are in Soho, don’t forget to stop by to check this place out for amazing foods and excellent service. Foie gras is a must-try! Pulled BBQ duck confit and chocolate lava were definitely delicious. They also have happy hour fresh oyster. Will come back for more Foie gras and check out their other dishes for sure.

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.

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.
