                                        We had an early reservation which was great because the restaurant is quite small but was almost empty. We were having a dinner reunion and were able to talk comfortably while enjoying an excellent meal! Dessert was spectacular!! Convenient to the theater district.

                                        We were there for a birthday lunch for an old friend and her husband. We ordered 2 Chicken Aioli Sandwiches, One Steak Sandwich, one Chicken Paillard, and a lovely dessert. The food was great, and it was a perfect place for a low key, intimate celebration among good friends. The pastries look spectacular - I will have to come back to check them out.

                                        Adorable French bistro - limited menu but all prepared perfectly. Lovely bar - this is a tiny space with few tables. Perfectly situated steps from the MCC theatre

                                        I am unable to review La Bergamote because they were closed on the day of my reservation. Open Table took my reservation, but the restaurant was not open on Monday. Luckily for me and my party, the restaurant called to say that they would be closed; when I asked why Open Table took the reservation, the person who called was very dismissive and didn't seem to care. (In fact, she said, they are closed EVERY Monday, but Open Table didn't know that.) So my ratings are NOT of the quality of service or food at La Bergamote but of the fact that Open Table and the restaurant need to communicate.

                                        This is a quaint restaurant in an unassuming part of midtown west. It is on a corner street so it's not as busy and it's a bit further west than where all the noise is, so it is perfect for a date night or lunch. The staff was great with communication before and during my visit and it made it very pleasurable. The restaurant was cute and welcoming, with a very Parisian vibe to it. Our waiter was always attentive and always asked if we needed something. The food was good. I ordered the shrimp linguine and my friend ordered the onion soup as well as the salmon salad. We both enjoyed our meals and since I work in the area, I'll definitely be going back.

                                        Loved the outdoor dining area - was quiet and was able to take a company call during breakfast.

                                        The reservation was for outdoor seating which was all we felt comfortable with but there was no outdoor seating. The server kept getting really close to us so she could read the menu and write down what we were ordering letter by letter and made us uncomfortable due to the lack of social distancing. We loved the appetizer from the Valentines day menu but the mains were just ok. Overall we were still happy enough with the experience until the server came and picked up our unfinished glasses of wine because someone was waiting for the table. It was very upsetting and really quite shocking. She apologized when we mentioned it but we won't be back.

                                        We had reserved outdoor dining but when we arrived on time no table was available outside!Saying she didnt know if it would be warm enough,the one employee said shed reserved an indoor table.!we went to look at it and there were no open windows or ventilation ,as well as having only chairs with high legs-not too comfortable for older folks. The Covid-19issues concern and wish for outdoor dining was main factor. After waiting til people left we were seated at a very small table.’this is really a cafe-with very nice food,of limited diversity. That said ,we had a delicious lunch of carrot soup,quiche and cappuccino..the French pastries,for which they are known,look delicious, and wish we had room for them. I think they have excellent menu and perhaps one would enjoy a full lunch menu or dinner here under normal circumstances. i would return at that time and hope the seating and ambiance matches the food.

                                        Food was very good and outdoor seating ideal (though more umbrellas would be helpful). Waiter was very pleasant but only came out to check with us after we had finished eating and we had to go inside to request the check. Otherwise we were very pleased.

                                        Wonderful food and the waiter was very nice. The outside seating and street was just “okay”. I believe they are better known for brunch and lunch, which the setting seemed optimized for. Nonetheless, the quality of food was great and we will stop by again!

                                        Outdoor patio seating was nice with distance between tables due to COVID-19. Excellent Burger (I don’t eat bacon so I had without, so review not based on full bacon-burger) with a lovely side salad.

                                        I love the food, especially their lemon blueberry ricotta pancakes - YUM,& an excellent croque madame, too. And the service is very good. I often have breakfast meetings here. But the music is sometimes too loud to have a decent conversation, and today was one of those times. Please turn the music down to a moderate level...

                                        Food was quite good (there for breakfast) but the service was friendly but quite slow, especially given we were the only customers. I would go again and see how the dinner is.

                                        We were surprised when we walked in to see it was a cafe with some limited seating. I was expecting it to be a restaurant and booked based on the menu and expecting a restaurant atmosphere. The food & service were very good.

                                        Four of us went for dinner after going to see The Wrong Man next-door. We loved everything about it and most especially the staff. They were helpful, accommodating and full of smiles. I wish we lived nearer.

                                        We did not have the fabulous looking desserts, but their soup and salad and sandwiches were great. Will go back.

                                        If you are in they neighborhood do stop by. Not sure I would make a special trip. The muscles were excellent, and desserts fabulous
