Cafe Un Deux Trois
We were and still are frequented by American and European theater and film actors, as well as politicians, directors, local New Yorkers and tourists from around the world. You will find many a Broadway cast and crew member hanging out after the show on any given night.
We recently had a facelift featuring enormous windows and a new color scheme.
The food while still classic bistro fare has expanded to include a variety of sandwiches, hamburgers and an extensive breakfast.
We have also added a selection of savory and sweet crepes to our dining choices.

The staff was incredible. We had a great time
This is one of our go to restaurants before the theatre. It is very reliable, good service, food and value. My wife loves their steak tartare. My salmon crepe was excellent.
Used Open Table to book a reservation for a pre-theater lunch. We ordered the prix fixé menu and my friends and I were happy with our choices. The service was attentive, professional, and the food was expertly timed to allow these “ladies who lunch” ample time to linger over coffee. The location is ideal and we were steps away from the Majestic Theater. So happy with our decision.
My go-to place in Times Square. The friendliest place (especially Jose at the door). Never any attitude. Food is great and fairly priced.
The best spot for pre theater dinner. Plenty of early dining options in a buzzy NY institution. Fun, good food, you don’t feel rushed but you never miss the curtain going up.
This, as many people know, is the PERFECT place for a pre- or post-show meal. Having lived in France, I can say the food is very authentic. Our most recent visit was made perfect by amazing service from our waiter, a lovely French gentleman that took care of our every need with a calmness and professionalism that enable us to relax before the show.
This was not our first time, the food was good, but our server was not friendly. We sat for awhile without even being asked if we wanted something to drink. We were a little early for brunch, which the person seating us said it was fine and we could start with coffee, which we were fine with. However, we sat for a good 15 minutes until anyone acknowledged us and asked what we wanted to drink. We started off with one waiter, then another came over who had a personality of a rock, we would have been happier with the first waiter. We were asked if we wanted bread, but was never brought it until the end of our meal.
Excellent French Cafe. Dining there immediate transports you to some quaint cafe in France during the 1920's.
The food is decent, especially for breakfast. This has become our goto place when we are in the big Apple.
I am from Chicago and when I come to NYC
I often come here because it is a reliable fixture and the food is better than average. Simple French dishes skillfully prepared. The steak au poivre is my usual; however, the also are open for brunch and the omelettes are also quite good. The only downside is the noise. If you are upfront in the center it is very difficult to hear the person across the table, let alone a person at the end of a six top. The back right corner seems to be the quietest spot. That said, I will happily eat there again.
Old bland decor. Tasteless gloppy food. And expensive.
Good food, great energy and service, really convenient location for shows. Prices are reasonable given the location.
The food is delicious, and the restaurant offers a variety of dishes to meet almost all interests. Service was good, given the number of diners. However the noise level was so loud that I was unable to hear my guest, who was visiting from out of state for one night. So for me it was an unfortunate choice for a Saturday night.
Appetizer, cocktail and meal arrived within 5 minutes of each other. Lamb shank fatty and rather tough. I suspect Cordon Bleu made well in advance and reheated.
When making reservation we were asked if it was a special occasion, indicated anniversary, not quite sure why the question was posed as no acknowledgment was made.
The decor was fun and our waiter was very attentive and professional.
Afraid we will not be back nor could we recommend
This is second time dining there. The food is very good, however, I ordered the chicken cordon bleu. Portion was more of an appetizer than a meal. The chicken was cut in tiny slivers, so small you couldn’t taste it was chicken. It was served with bland rice. My friend ordered the 12 oz steak with was cooked to perfection. Will definitely eat here again but will not order the chicken again.
We went at 1pm just after the theater crowd and had a most delightful experience. Had the grand daughters along! We come with crazy baggage- 1 shellfish allergy, 1 nut allergy, and 1 gluten free. We had a most marvelous experience. It was so appreciated. We will go again.
Great French favorites.
Great restaurant for pre-theater dining. Food is really good and the staff excellent.
Came for dessert after seeing a show. Desserts were wonderful! One of my favorite places in NYC.
A favorite old haunt remains reliable and festive. I really enjoyed my goat cheese and spinach crepe along with a good glass of Malbec, which was a nice pour.
This is a classic french bistro th staff is great and they find a fair balance with getting you out in time for a show, with no rush
Lively as always & packed to the brim.
Convenient to Broadway. Our meal was good
The location near so many theaters makes this restaurant attractive. We arrived at 4:00 PM after a 1:00 PM Broadway show and there were very few people and service was very, very slow. They seemed to be setting up for the later crowd and were not to interested in us. The food was OK but not great, even their crepes were disappointing. The filling of the crepes was good but the crepes themselves were like plastic. The decor is very nice. Stay away from the crepes and enjoy the rest of their menu.
One of my favorite places. The escargots are to die for. Never had a bad meal here.
First time here and it was more wonderful than I expected. My friend and I enjoyed the prix fixe dinner and it was superb.
our lunch was delicious and they always have soup I can eat since I have a limited diet due to surgery. The waiter was extremely good and very pleasant. It was a lovely experience.
A long time "go to" place for post-theater dinner. Large menu, food is well prepared.
Have always loved this place. They are masters at getting you out the door in time for the show. Food and service are very good as well. Wish they could keep the noise level down!
A large restaurant situated perfectly for pre-theater dinners. Enjoyable French menu with everything from appetizers and salads to crepes and full main dishes.
Good food, beautiful yet casual setting. Friendly service-real ny. Love crayons on the table too.
Always reliable, always delicious!
Very nice Resturant. Close to Theather- table ready when we arrived on time.
Fair price for food.
Consistently reliable. We can go before theater and know we will get out on time. We can go after and know we can linger over an enjoyable meal. The food is well executed classic bistro (I had the lamb shank over white beans last night - to my delight). The wine list is affordable and complements the food. The cocktails are well made. What's not to like?
I'd only recommend Cafe Un Deux Trois to a friend who was totally deaf or enjoyed being overwhelmed by the intense din. The food is OK for the Theater District. My warm goat cheese salad was tasty but overpriced for its size. The restaurant was willing to leave the croutons off my salad but doesn't offer any gluten free bread.
By the time we left, we were exhausted from the noise level.
Came with my mum for dinner before a show on my birthday. It was the right balance of affordable, delicious and fun. We had a great time and would recommend to people looking for a great pre show place!
This is a place I frequented for years in the late 70s and 80s. The charm and excellent service are still there. The menu is a great sampling of "la cuisine française" and the Prix Fixe Menu is a good value. I am glad that I got to visit with old friends again and to introduce someone new to Un Deux Trois. À bientôt mes amis!
Food was excellent. Noise was unbearable!!! Do not go here if you want to have a conversation.
Always dependable spot in the Theater District. Food is quite good and service is very friendly.
Enjoyed the salmon special offered under the Prixe Fixe menu. Especially liked that the vegetables served (brussel sprouts and carrots) were different than the offerings most restaurants offer and were nice and crisp. The chocolate mousse was a bit too textured for my taste, but it was tasty. Service was very good. The restaurant was convenient to the theater district and the staff was very aware of our desire to make our show on time.
Loved it! We were a block away from our show - but a million miles away in ambience.
