This is a great, neighborhood bistro. Excellent food, not adventurous cuisine, great service, friendly, not pricey. Nice time had by all. And there's a bakery in front.

I chose this restaurant among the many listings for French restaurants in Chelsea because of its "Neighborhood Gem" branding. An apt description! And it's worth a trip to the neighborhood to eat there. The food was delicious (I had the dairy free cauliflower and leek puree soup and the cod) and the service friendly and efficient. Really a nice meal. I look forward to returning.

We enjoyed the mussels to share as an appetizer. They have a good selection of entrees and desert selections. I enjoyed the duck breat with potato purée and my friend enjoyed the special risotto with lamb.

One of this joints many virtues is the server Andrew who seems to work every day and embodies the maxim, "service with a smile". He always seems genuinely happy to see regular guests and explain everything on the menu when needed...The food here is more from the school of comfort than confronting, but this makes it an well-intentioned local spot for a casual weeknight meal. Save some room for one of countless french pastries on offer. Fatten up on goodness! Peace.

We were all pleased with the food, specially the lamb in the menu, that was delicious. The apettisers were very tasty. Excellent service. Good wines as well. What we couldn't get over with, was that a French restaurant that doesn't use real napkins. For that we were kinda disappointed. I think the restaurant needs to Invest a little more on that, as it is a small restaurant, and real fabric napkins instead paper, would give even more presentation to it.

We always enjoy this local French restaurant. The ambiance always reminds me of Paris and their food is very good. Highly recommend the Coq au Vin and the Cassoulet. This is also a great place for brunch. The bakery and pastry section of the restaurant is perfect to take something back home when you ar done with dinner!

Post-matinee Sunday brunch - polite staff, good service, moderate prices, delicious salads and pastries - what more does a girl want on a sunny afternoon. And they are nice to 'older' women!

We had tickets to the Atlantic Theater down the block and were looking for something comfortable nearby before the show- there were 5 of us. After reading the reviews on Open Table, we decided to give it a go and we were not disappointed. The service was warm, the food authentic French dishes that were delicious, large portioned and reasonably priced. If I were walking by, I would easily overlook this as a real option for a good meal as much of the restaurant that is visible from the street looks like a French patisserie. Its the dining room to the back of the restaurant that provides the hearty meal and its well worth the stop inside. The timing was such that even though we did not have time to have dessert before the show, we were able to make it back for a return visit after the show and enjoyed French pastries and coffee to end the night. Our only criticism was that the timing of the meal was not paced for making it to the theater without worrying about the time even though we had alerted the servers to this ahead of time. It wasn't the service - its just a small kitchen producing an unhurried meal which works on most nights, it just created a bit of a rush for us. That being said, we'd happily return when there is no looming timeline as a hard stop to the meal. If we lived nearby, this would definitely be a favorite haunt.

I expected more as I've been ordering their pastries for years. Our waiter didn't seem to know the menu and when I asked him whether they offered bread and butter with the meal, he said you have to ask. Still no bread and butter.
Disappointed

Breakfast was very delicious with the eggs cooked to perfection while the french toast was a little dry. Coffee was dark and delicious but the waitress was slow to refill. Hot chocolate was a delight and the ambience was quite pleasant in this beautiful part of the Chelsea neighborhood.

I randomly tried this place with a group of coworkers for a team dinner and it was an unexpected surprise of deliciousness. The portions are great and the food is really good. We would definitely return. It seems great for this kind of group/dinner as it's not too fancy or intimate.

This restaurant appears, at first glance, to be a bakery (which it is). But the less visible part is a small restaurant, and the food is superb, from the freshly baked bread to the lamb chops salmon, chicken, and risotta through the deliciously (fattening) desserts. Definitely a neighborhood gem.

Known more as a pastry shop, but this quaint bistro serves a few delicious lunch and dinner menus. They are all yummy and priced right.
This is probably the only place in this hood where you can actually hear your conversation...a definite plus, particularly in this age where noise seems to be the main attraction.

I feel like I'm in a small cafe in Paris when I'm here. I like it for both lunch and dinner. The food is always well prepared and delicious. The service is haphazard but the servers are pleasant and unruffled. It is a neighborhood gem.

 (Baltimore)·Dined on March 7, 2016

AI was excited to find a nice French restaurant that wouldnt break the bank, but unfortunately this estaurant didnt meet my expectations. My server was incredibly rude and inattentive. He did not care at all about my table at all. I had to ask multiple times to get my water re-filled, and he didnt even ask if we wanted coffee with our desserts. As for the entrees,they were nicely plated and seasoned. I was dissatisfied with the desserts. Although they looked very nice, the Opera cake and Tiramisu were lacking in flavor. The tiramisu might as well have been whipped cream with a little sponge cake. The opera cake lacked the espresso flavor I was looking for. The joconde biscuit was authentic and the glaze was nice. Maybe I'll give this restaurant another try next time I go to New York.

Not only the desserts are fabulous, but the food, the prix fix even at night (which is not common) makes La Bergamote second to none. Both in 20th and 9th Avenue and 52nd between 10th and 11th.

Came with a group of 5 and every person was delighted! French classics, delicious bread
but don't forget that the La Bergamote is known for its pastries. Absolutely one of the best
French Patisseries in NY.
