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.

This restaurant is a classic brasserie. The service is very good. The food terrific. Can’t beat the location if you are heading to the theater or staying at a Times Square hotel. I will certainly visit this restaurant on my next visit to New York.

Very noisy, crowded restaurant. The food was actually quite good but portions were small. The waiter was wonderful, friendly and helpful but he was clearly overwhelmed by the number of tables he had to attend to. We would not return.

This is bistro food and I think it is excellent. If you are looking for something new and unusual keep looking. I think it is great that their menu has remained the same for years.
The bar service was a little slow the night we went but that was not our waiter’s fault.
The salad and the sea scallops I had were terrific.

This used to be so much better. Food now is average -- didn't seem freshly prepared and did not arrive at table hot. Uninspired plates. No one refilled our water or asked if we wanted more coffee. It was convenient to theatres but food is nothing to rave about it -- it once was.

it has been a while since i last ate at cafe un deux trois. used to come there often when my children were young...i don't know when and why they eliminated the paper table coverings and the crayons...missed the opportunity to play hangman while waiting for food.

food quality was adequate but not excellent...service was friendly.

it is very convenient to many theaters, so a good choice for pre- or post-theater.

Great spot for late dinner after a show. Loved the onion soup. It was just the right temperature, hot, but not scalding. Enjoyed the spinach crepe with goat cheese. Enjoy

This was our second time dining at Cafe Un Deux Trois, and it was just as delightful. The boeuf Bourginion and Poulet Cordon Bleu were delicious, as was the pate plate and creme brûlée. The servers were attentive, but not overly so. The noise level was a bit high, but it felt just like a noisy Paris bistro so it was part of the overall ambience.
This restaurant is definitely on our permanent roster of pre-theatre dining spots.

The s still a god re theater place, but steak frites is not a good choice. Meat was tough and farts arrived cold and not crisp. They replaced the fries and one of the steaks with boeuf Bourguignon. Steak tartare was good, as were profiteroles and flourless chocolate cake.

The service at this Theatre District stand-by has never been better: Pleasant, cheerful, professional, and able to get you out the door to your show no matter how crowded. I've eaten here any number of times over the years, and it's still one of the best bistros. Prix fixe continues to be a great value.

We’ve been coming to this restaurant for many years. Unfortunately, they are very inconsistent. When you are rushed to make it to the theater, you are not going to send food back for problems to be resolved. Lots of thoughtlessness and sub-par food being tossed at you. This routine is starting to get old. Between uncertain food preps and the extreme noise level, I would be hard pressed to return here. It feels more like a feeding frenzy than a well-honed cafe experience. Mediocre at best.

I have had better food at AppleBee's. The french fries were clearly frozen without any seasoning. The steak was poorly cooked and tough as could be. My wifes beef bourguignon was bland and the potatoes were completely without flavor.

Beautiful interiors, gracious welcome. Loved our server and what an extra special touch when several servers came out with a birthday dessert for my daughter with a candle. The mussels were the best I’ve ever had. My Grey Goose martini had a bit of a different taste but I’m going to attribute that to possibly a different Vermouth than I’m used to. My only suggestion would be to change the music; why would I come to a French restaurant to hear American classic rock? Merci!

The food and the service was OK but the noise is deafening. I had asked for a quiet table when I made my reservation (usually have a corner table) but there was nothing available. My husband is hard of hearing so it made the entire meal very uncomfortable. I will probably go back simply because of the location but the noise level is extremely high right before the theatre.
