Service was fast and outdoor set up was cute, but I was disappointed with the menu: it's supposed to be a French restaurant but there are just a few French options, and the quality was just ok. I felt like dining in a touristic brasserie close to Eiffel Tour which, as most know, are of poor quality.
Excellent all around. Drinks , food and service all 100%
Cognac has a charming atmosphere, good food, and gracious service. It is relaxed and conducive to conversation.
The muscles were OK, the french fries limp, the Sancerre excellent. The service could have been more attentive. It took a long time to get the waiter's attention to order dessert.
Wonderful setting outdoors and wonderful service. Running out of almost everything on the menu at 8pm is unacceptable. No specials. Why bother going here?
Food - awesome- crispy french fries- steak perfect- excellent waiter
Service was slow and somewhat missing yesterday. Usually it's very good.
I have been to this restaurant several times and it’s always excellent! The outdoor seating is lovely.
Customer service is outstanding and the food offerings are delicious!
Onion soup was not what I recalled Nd not up to par
Pleasant lunch surroundings. Tasty food
Favorite and always great
Other than the A/C did not work, my neighborhood restaurant experience was fine
Consistently great service and food. Love the outdoor dining here, even in the rain.
Hi gotten very expensive for very small portions
3 big "S" get lots of Stars
Wonderful eating outdoors on 70th St. Actually prefer to eating indoors!
This is by far best outdoor dining on the Upper East Side. Not to mention the outstanding staff and delicious food!!!
Consistently good food! They are doing a great job with COVID compliance.
Lovely spaces inside and outside, and wonderful service - would definitely come here again.
Great service. Chicken was dry but every other meal I’ve had has been excellent. Order chocolate soufflé with entree
Perfect service and delicious food.
Great setting for outdoor seating - great service - great food!
Good neighborhood cafe for all-day dining, executed with quiet attention to taste and presentation. Service very good too!
Poor training of staff - appetizer plates left on table when main courses arrived - no runner to remove old ones. No water glass refill. Menus not picked up after ordering dessert. Everyone meant well and were very polite - it's a failure of training.
Always terrific! We had a late dinner after a super-boring day of filing and sorting old paperwork, so it was a relief to get out. We opted to eat outside in the very attractive street space on a beautiful night. This is one of my neighborhood go-to’s and it never disappoints. Staff is friendly and competent.
We ate outside, so ambiance and noise are difficult to define in that case. But they have made it difficult to see the cars because of the structure and there is plenty of plexiglass in that area to block noise and conversations. A wonderful slice of old Upper East Side New York City, an XKE convertible was parked nearby.
Pleasant neighborhood bistro- just a bit expensive
Excellent menu, great food and service. Good outdoor set-up.
A neighborhood comfortable experience,good food,good service and an extensive wine list
Yummy food; outstanding service- perfect!
Always a great meal!
Lovely space. Somewhat tasteless burgers and sprouts. Terrific service.
Food was good, hoped the flambeed Filet mignon would be flambeed at the table which was disappointing. Customer service was excellent. Drinks were delicious too. Would go back.
We have been longtime customers who go several times a year. But last night may be our last time. Three of the four in our party ordered the cheese soufflé as our main course. But all 3 soufflés were underdone, very soupy in the center. Replacements would have taken about a half hour, so two of us ordered alternate dishes (hamburger, omelette) and the other decided to skip dinner all together at that point and wait for dessert. We had all received our dinner wines with the soufflés, so, for example, I had to eat my hamburger with the Chablis I had ordered to go with my soufflé. What should have been a pleasant night out was pretty unenjoyable. Then the bill arrived and it was over $400! That made us realize that this place has never been a good value. And frankly it was shocking that the manager never came over to us to follow up on how we were feeling after the soufflés were sent back, and never did the right thing and not charge us for our replacement dishes and likewise not charge us for the 3 glasses of wine we had ordered to go with our soufflés. The food was inedible, but we all understand that mistakes happen. It was the bill and general lack of concern on the part of management that left a bad taste in our mouths.
Great service and delicious food in a lovely outdoor setting. A lovely way to dine out at a very French feeling brasserie. Perfect if you miss traveling!
Really great! Delicious food and cocktails// wine and good service. Dante was so nice !!
We loved we went for my birthday but the waiter asked repeatedly when we were leaving.. other than that the salad was marvelous and the rose divine.
Lovely outside but when busy service is spotty and abrupt.
Food is good although my wife was disappointed in the shrimp in the shrimp salad but she is quite picky.
Burger was wonderful....
