OpenTable Diner (New York Area)

Had dinner here with my daughter prior to going to a show. Conveniently located in the theater district, but the food was absolutely awful. I would avoid this restaurant and we certainly will never go again. The food looked nothing like the nice meals shown in the photos. Beware, false advertising. The appetizer tasted funny. Our main courses were precooked and then heated-up prior to serving to us. The deserts were not fresh. I don't know how you mess up steak frites, mac and cheese, or apple tart but they did. Too bad, because it is a lovely setting, nice ambiance and well-located but don't eat here!

The look and feel created a nice quiet hideaway next to the busiest block in America. The service was quick and my glass was never empty. The food was decent; nothing bad, but nothing good to say. The prices were extremely affordable for NYC.

Not sure why this restaurant is rated as highly as it is. The food was just average, ditto the service, but what really annoyed me was that they served those little pre-packaged cups of "breakfast syrup" (actually corn syrup) that you get at breakfast in a Hampton Inn or similar chain motel. We ordered french toast and pancakes, and this was the accompanying "syrup." For $10 or $11 each, genuine maple syrup would have been appropriate. Actually, in a Hampton Inn, you are also offered the "sugar-free" breakfast syrup, so at least there, if one wants the flavor of maple syrup, it's possible to avoid the calories. Not here.

The food is fine. Nothing special. It’s close to theaters which is useful and isn’t too loud so conversations are possible.

Once again we had a fine lunch and even good coffee after our meal. This restaurant is a reliable choice in the mid-town theatre area with reasonable prices, good food, and efficient service.

I had the best escargot I’ve ever had, and the lamb shank was amazing. The lamb chops were underwhelming next to the shank but were still good. I had two whiskey sours and the first was very weak but the second was perfect so drinks are hit or miss. Out server was wonderful, didn’t interrupt us and wasn’t too chatty but was friendly and gave great food and wine recommendations, she really knew the menu. I will absolutely eat here next time I’m in town.

I met 3 out-of-town friends for lunch on a Tuesday. The service and the food are excellent - I've had dinner here many times but never brunch. Highly recommend it, especially on regular, not matinee, days. My 3 friends were very impressed and will return whenever they're in town, I'm sure.

One of the best pre-theater menus, great value. Excellent service allows ‘leisurely’ enjoyment of a 3-course meal with no rush to get to theater on time. Quiet enough to truly enjoy conversation. Very good food.

Good spot for pre-theater meal. Appetizer menu was small, but good French onion soup. Entrees tasted bland.

Have eaten here before a number of times and was looking forward to returning. Exceptionally disappointing. Poor quality food and seriously overpriced

The space is nice and convenient to the theater district. Overall, the food was disappointing. I ordered steak frites and it was only passable which was disappointing given this was a french bistro. My wife ordered the seafood risotto and said it was the worse risotto she had ever had. The seafood was okay (clams, mussels) but the risotto was not cooked correctly. My daughter had the mussels and french fries which she liked.
