Restaurateurs Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato brought their love for French culture and cuisine to New York City by giving the Big Apple an authentic slice of France when they opened Brasserie Cognac de Monsieur Ballon in April 2008. Located in the theater district and frequented by celebrities, businessmen, locals and tourists, the setting is both exciting and charming. The Brasserie style menu offers French classics . Guests can choose to dine in the outdoor sidewalk café, casual original French bakery, classic main dining room, lively bar/lounge or the private Cognac Room as they enjoy meals complimented by 102 varieties of cognac and a gorgeous wine list including first-growth Bordeaux sold by the glass.

Our waiter for a party of 16, was spectacular! Christian was his name, and he was flawless, sweet, and efficient. The food was really good, but I was more impressed with the good natured hospitality.

We were staying nearby and decided to try this restaurant, We love martinis, and we love chicken paillard. We sat at the bar and the bartender was great made great full drinks 🍸 and we decided to order dinner at the bar. The paillard comes with an arugula light dressing on top. The chicken was paper thin, spiced just right. We went back for an exact second meal . Both times the chicken was excellent, both bartenders made excellent drinks . A great mid fifties neighborhood gem.

It’s our favorite spot any time of the year! Food and wine variety is great, service is impeccable and the location pretty much to die for!

I try to eat here every time I am in NYC. It's a great spot. You can have a full meal or just a snack.

We were pleasantly surprised at the excellent cuisine - from the hour here’s to the martini- everything was perfect. A little pricey- glass of wine 15.00 so dinner for four was over 200.00- but the dining experience was well worth the price. We will definitely be returning!

This was our second visit to this restaurant. And it was as good as the first time. We stayed at a hotel a few blocks away . Breakfast was delicious and the service was great. This will definitely be one of our stops when we visit the city.

I took a friend for dinner before an 8pm Carnegie Hall performance. I arrived at 6pm, my guest at 6:30. When she arrived the waiter had not even poured water for the table. At 6:50 a waiter finally took our drink and food order. The drinks and appetizers arrived at 7:10. At 7:35 our dinner had not been delivered to us. We had to leave. As we were putting on our coats the dinner arrived and they were less than pleased that we would not stay to eat it. We would never go back.
