The experience is so good. Beautiful flower and decor and so romantic. The food is very good and the quality of the dining experience has improved over the last few years. From the warm welcome and the attentive service to the fine wine list with good choices at each price to the selection of menu items and the preparation. We are so satisfied and enjoy the experience.

I went with my sisters and we were treated like royalty. We had the prix fixe luncheon and it was delicious. Three courses well worth the cost. The flowers are beautiful and we commented how pleasant it was to be able to have a conversation without raising our voices. A wonderful experience.

I have been coming to La Grenouille for over 40 years. Never disappointed or surprised with the urge to change. Service always perfect. The food as well. But, it’s the whole experience that keeps me looking forward to being there again. Dress up. La Grenouille does it everyday in impecable taste.

Horrible experience. I got very sick from something I ate. I called the restaurant and the Manager, dismissed me, citing that this has never happened before. I wasn’t going to write this negative review, but after the horrible customer service, I have no choice. They don’t care about their customers or their wellbeing. All that was needed was a thoughtful apology and a commitment to find the source of the bad food. Very sad as we were so excited to try this place for a special occasion (which they did not acknowledge either).

Marvelous as usual. I took my nieces who recently moved to New York to dinner. La Grenouille is one of the last, classic haut cuisine French restaurants in NYC. I wanted them to experience that and they loved it. Superb food, wonderful service and a warm welcome from staff. And of corse, those beautiful, extravagant flower arrangements. An exceptional experience all the way around.

Wonderful!

We hadn't been to Le Grenouille in years but returned a few months ago and had such a wonderful experience, we returned again last week for an early dinner (really a late lunch), post theatre matinee. The service is exceptional, the atmosphere elegant. It's nice to be surrounded by flowers, have comfortable seating, and have acoustics that don't require you to shout to the only other person at your table --a lost art in the design some of today's restaurants, in my opinion. And, the food, is always exceptional--no need to go into the details on that. We both loved everything we ordered. Le Grenouille will be a repeat for us several times during the year.

Arrived and seated with good friend. Called in advance to inquire about dress code as we were casual and in jeans. Informed that jeans ok. My friend felt underdressed when we arrived.
My 19yo son; a college student at Parson’s arrived later than we did. He was not immediately permitted to enter the restaurant. He attempted to inform them that he was meeting my friend and I. He was ignored and rebuffed and kept waiting out in the cold. They literally shut the door in my son’s face!
He was treated rudely
He was kept outside the restaurant in the cold
Our driver had to approach the restaurant to demand they permit my son to enter the restaurant.
Unfortunately all they saw was a YOUNG BLACK MALE!
My friend, Caucasian and I were livid and ensured the manager was aware of their discrimanatory practices.
The manager does not feel the actions of one of their staff members reflects their restaurant.
There were 3 staff members near the front door of the restaurant that witnessed my son being kept out.
Bottomline we will never return and will ensure that we make our friends and colleagues understand that in this day and age issues like this continue.
My son; the perfect gentleman does not deserve to be treated like this.
Truly unfortunate and downright disgusting behavior!

The potion of food for the forced prefix menu was not in line for a price of 400 for two without wine. Food was good but will not be back cause of price. You can get same quality and atmosphere for better price in Manhattan.

Went before a show for the early menu. Was with my teenage daughter who was wearing jeans -was very underdressed. Captain waiter dismissive but everybody else was lovely. Generally a somewhat stuffy atmosphere but had beautiful fresh flowers. Wine by the glass and was pricey and mostly French. Food was great. Eager to try dinner menu
