Cafe Un Deux Trois has been located in the heart of Times Square since 1977. We opened when the neighborhood was still very rough , and quickly became THE brasserie to stop for dinner and drinks before heading off to Studio 54 and Xenon to dance the night away.
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.

Terrific location in between matinee and evening performances in the Theater District. Food was very good...very hot..and came out in good time...especially, when dining pre-theater. Wait staff courteous and attentive as was the maitre d'...will definitely return to this lovely French Bistro.

Never disappoints for a great lunch. The salads and omelettes are very tasty and the service is always good. The room is as bright and pleasant as ever, even though it's been around for years. Perfect for pre-theater.

An established pro at turning out good french inspired dishes in time to make the show. Goat cheese salad was inspired in execution. Colorful baby tomatoes riding an endive leaf and crisp greens throughout with nicely toasted goat cheese was a great lead into a main of calf's liver. Likely to return on another pre-theater evening.

One of our favourites places in NYC — the affordable Balthazar! Each and every person is helpful, warm and friendly, kind, and attentive. We could’t ask for more.

The oatmeal was barely cooked and just not eatable. The side order of strawberries were terrible also. Not ripe at all so all white in the inside w no flavor. Coffee wasn’t good either. The only good thing was that it was quiet for a business meeting. All three of us ordered the oatmeal so it wasn’t a fluke.

Convenient, nice spot for brunch prior to a Sunday matinee. Unfortunately, the service was unnecessarily slow. Our waiter was not particularly attentive. We were not in a rush so it was OK but it could have been better. The food was good and consistent with our expectations. The room has a nice french brasserie atmosphere.

The crepes were delicious. I had the spinach, goat cheese and mushroom crepe with the side salad. Two other people at our table had crepes, also.. the salmon one and the chicken one. We all raved about them. The were HUGE, just stuffed with delicious filings. We will definitely return here.

Wonderful experience, We were celebrating two birthdays and the waiters came over and sang and all the patrons joined in with the singing.
The food was great and by NYC standards the prices were reasonable.
Everyone had a great time.

Great for pre-theatre lunch/brunch $28. for a cocktail, entree and coffee. Delicious food and great service. I have been enjoying Cafe Un Deux Trois for years before shows or just meeting friends for lunch. You'll love it.

I made a Brunch reservation for myself and my roommate from college whom I haven’t seen in 28 years!! Understandably, we had a lot of catching up to do. Our server was wonderful. He let us sit for two hours to talk. He even came with fresh cups of coffee at one point! We both had the quiche Lorraine which of course was delicious! I have eaten at Cafe Un Deux Trois quite a few times for lunch and dinner. It’s in a great location, the price is right, and the food is great. But it’s the little things that you do that keep me coming back! Thank you!

This was the 2nd time having dinner before a show. Service was very efficient and timely. Food selection was good and well prepared. The profiteroles for desert were as good as the prior time.....a nice ending to the experience.

I went for brunch a year ago and enjoyed it so much that I thought I’d return for dinner. I was totally underwhelmed by my food.... Everything else was good. I don’t see myself returning.

This restaurant reminded me of cafes we had been to in Paris. The Nicoise salad was precisely as I remember it from our various trips there. My husband was very happy with his salmon and mousse. While we didn't have pre-theatre dinner, I would count on the service to allow us to make a curtain time.

Cafe Un Deux Trois is always like coming home - a cozy stop between or before shows. There are no strangers at Un Deux Trois. The maitre-d treats you like an old friend. The menu is varied enough to satisfy everyone in your group. Even though in mid-town, it's the kind of place that reminds you Manhattan can sometimes feel like a small town.

Delicious meal in a beautiful setting. Service was excellent and was based around our theater time. Canard a l’orange, lamb shank, savory spinach crepe, crispy salmon, and pasta with eggplant and sun dried tomatoes were delicious and cooked perfectly. We will return for sure.

Decent food. Really loud. Too many tables jammed in small area. Can’t even get out easily to go to the restroom. Service not great. Being in the theater district, it felt like we were being rushed thru the machine. Frankly wouldn’t recommend it

So lovely to have a go-to place in New York that is just so much fun, so affordable, and so reliable. Cafe Un Deux Trois is great for taking your child out to dinner for her first trip to NYC . It's great for taking a friend when you're between parts one and two of Harry Potter or The Inheritance. It's great for meeting up with your now grown-godson with whom you've never had a cocktail and a nice dinner. It's great for a place to pick when it's your turn to choose a restaurant on a girls' trip. Get the picture?

Not what we were expecting! We were expecting a small French bistro like we have been to before in NYC. This was the opposite. More like a cafeteria. Noisy and crowded. Service was good in spite of that. Don’t know how the servers get around sometimes.
The food was decent. Came out very fast ( almost McDonald’s fast) and looked like banquet fare. Tasted good though. Would be a good place for a family coming in after or before a show. Just know what you are getting. All of the staff was friendly.
