We dine here frequently. The food is consistently well prepared. The service is impeccable. The price is very reasonable. The ambiance is lovely. It reminds us of a favorite restaurant of ours in Paris. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful East Side neighborhood bistro, our favorite in Manhattan for over a decade. Authentic French food at a markedly fair price. Staff are superb, welcoming, warm, professional.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The food was presented creatively, was delicious, and there were so many different choices. We ordered different entrees and were able to share them because portions were very ample. The ambiance was very cozy and comfortable. It gave mind to authentic restaurants in France. The service was outstanding and the bloody mary was the best ever. A very pleasant evening, for a reasonable price with very good friends.

we really enjoyed our time here. OUr meals were very good......boeuf bourguignone was tasty, steak au poivre well seasoned though slightly tough for the price. Pommes frites yummy, caramel custard just right. Service was attentive, atmo very cozy and charming. We will be back.

True Parisian bistro vibe. Loved that but food was just ok/ good. Was hoping for better deeper sauce on my grilled shrimp with julienne veg. The coq au vin was great sauce with so so veg/ chicken pieces. Overall without the good service and vibe wouldn't rush back. Sorry to say.

The outdoor terrace is very Parisian, which is what attracted me to this restaurant. However, the food was not as good as one might expect seeing such a charming terrace. The lamb couscous was tasteless.

This is a lovely little neighborhood restaurant. Authentically French. Almost everything on the Brunch menu comes with Pommes Frites - so it mitigated the guilt of ordering them. Very tasty, excellent service.

Deux Amis is a charming French bistro with great outdoor seating. It was a beautiful night so we did opt for a table outside, but the restaurant's interior is very pretty too.
The food is delicious, portions generous and prices very affordable - especially for midtown! The wine list is reasonable too. Our server was very friendly, attentive and efficient.
We had a wonderful time and would definitely return!

Deux Amis is one of my favorite restaurants, one because they are across the street from my apartment and two, the food is always good. However, last time I went which was Saturday the 19th of August I was very disappointed in my entree. The Monk Fish I ordered looked like an airline meal. The fish was chopped in little pieces that were dry and tasteless. The vegetables served were boring to say the least. With that said everyone else liked their meal so that is why I would still recommend them. But they need to improve that dish asap.

This is a French bistro, no surprise with the name, with the good and bad that implies. The food is adequate and perhaps a tiny bit more. The service is enthusiastic, but barely passable. The waitress did not know if the soup special was chilled or hot, and actually had difficulty with the concept. The ambiance was comfortable. Dinner for three, with only two drinking non-descript wines by the glass which came without a name and merely a varietal description was $225 without tip -- hardly inexpensive given the nature of the food, but not crazy expensive. The best thing I can say is I will probably go back.

Disappointing, after several previous positive visits here. The service was very sloppy. The duck confit was indifferent. The wine carafe is a ripoff - it costs 3x a single glass and the amount we got was about that of 2 glasses.

Always a delicious favorite spot for a burger, moules frites, steak frites, cassoulet or a mushroom omelet. Whether eating at the bar, in the dining room or al fresco, the service is friendly and prompt. Only the intense noise level keeps me from dining here more often.

Deux Amis is not hip, nor is it "downtown"--and that's just what we wanted. It was cool, quiet, and peaceful on a hot Saturday afternoon. The server was outstanding--warm, friendly and very smart. Bucky's burger--not an adventurous choice--is nevertheless delicious and comes with a perfectly dressed salad. The endive salad is beautiful, creative, and combines flavors skillfully. Deux Amis looks and feels like a Parisian bistro. And prices are very reasonable for any location in New York.

Deux Amis has never disappointed me. This time I revisited an old favorite after avoiding it for more than a year: Couscous with a lamb shank. It was really wonderful. It is served in three parts: the couscous and lamb shank, the sauce for the dish, and harissa. Combine the three parts and you are rewarded with a delicious, spicy combination that makes the taste buds come alive.

Server was very good, attentative but not overly so. Food was quite good. It is in a nice neighborhood, quite but not too dark as some of the river area can be. We had a bottle of the house Sancerre which was ok / good enough. I had a lamb shank with an excellent sauce.

Very good for authentic French that goes beyond the usual bistro menu. Delicious seafood options, fabulous duck, and generous portions that are neither too large nor too small. Reasonably priced, particularly for the quality and for French cuisine. Perfect for casual dinner or for date night. The restaurant is small, though not quite hole-in-the-wall - probably best for parties of six or less. Cute outdoor seating, though outdoors would be difficult for parties of more than four. Thoughtful servers, great wine list and good cocktails.
