Superb atmosphere, service and food!!!
I would highly recommend this for a special occasion.
We will be back!!
Step back in time and enjoy an incredible dinning experience: service, food, ambiance all exceptional. Get dressed and enjoy. (Gentlemen still wear jackets)
The ultimate special occasion spot! Perfect ambiance, food and service make this the ultimate treat. Old school is still best!
There is no prettier nor more romantic room in New York, especially when the dreariness of winter drags on for too long. Being transported to the magical realm of flowers everywhere one looks and everything bathed in gorgeous warm lighting in this jewel box of a restaurant is always a luxurious treat. The dessert souffles are outstanding!
The last time we dined here was 14 years ago - the service was just as we remembered and the flowers amazing! The food was impeccable and the evening perfect. We took our teenage boys there to experience true fine dining and it lived up to all of our accolades.
I was hoping this was going to be a marvelous experience. My wife and I had eaten at this restaurant five years previously on our third wedding anniversary. I specifically traveled from Detroit to New York expressly to eat in this restaurant and celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. I made all the necessary notes on the OpenTable booking - special occasion anniversary – treat my beautiful wife like a princess. I also verbally reiterated to the restaurant,( by telephone twice), that it was our wedding anniversary celebration. The restaurant maître d’ and waiters made no reference to it being our anniversary. To add insult to injury the head waiter made an enormous fuss of the table right next to us congratulating them on their wedding anniversary.I would hope that I would receive an apology from the restaurant or at very least from OpenTable (this entire experience costing somewhere north of $3000 for flights hotel and the meal). Alternatively open table should really consider dropping requests on their website for special considerations. Sincerely Louis Lyne
My mother-in-law turned 91 and I took her for a pre-theater dinner. It was superb, memorable and absolutely delightful.
La Grenouille has a lot going for it. It's visually lovely, with beautiful fresh floral arrangements at every table (although the aroma can be a bit overpowering while one is trying to savor the flavors of the food). The service is excellent—attentive but not overbearing, and very accommodating of likes and dislikes. The portions seem small, but we found them tasty and filling. The food is delicious and perfectly prepared. The chocolate souffle is spectacular. It's a beautiful place for a romantic dinner or a special occasion. My only quibble is the cost--this is what I call an "expense account restaurant." Mere mortals not on an expense account: brace yourselves for the prices!
A perfect combination of food, service, and ambiance.
It's always a treat to go to La Grenouille
Flowers are spectacular
Throw back to elite service and elegance
Can't eat this way everyday (even though I'd like to) but food is sublime
Just not worth the cost. Many other places exceed, costing less with better ambiance. Stellar staff and service. Jackets required which should be noted on website.
No matter the dimension of fine dining (plating, taste, variety, service, ambience, etc.), La Grenouille is stunning. A sublime dining experience.
The occasion was my wife’s 70th birthday. The room was beautiful, the food was particularly well prepared and delicious, the service, including both the captain and the wait staff, was superb. A perfect evening for a very special lady!
Enter from the street and go through a curtain to a very special place. Filled with beautiful flowers, fabulous attentive and unobtrusive service with food to match. Dover Sole the best I have ever experienced. Quintessentially French with a few new twists. Yes its pricey with one of the highest Price Fixes in NYC.
As vegetarians, we sometimes get "afterthought" food -- a dish off the menu altered to suit vegetarian tastes. Not here! There was a special vegetarian menu, with superb choices like celery root veloute, artichoke carpaccio and mushroom-truffle soufflé -- very special place, highly recommended. Not overpriced for the quality, will go again.
Excellent service and the cuisine was decent. Great decor and very much enjoyed the lavishly delightful experience.
you know why you're going there. it's good to also know that you will get what you expect.
Best restaurant in New York. La Grenouille is beautiful, every bite is heavenly and the service is incomparable. For a special occasion, there is no better choice.
Had dinner last night with my wife and service, food and ambience could not have been better. A old school classic and Tony the bartender is the best,
Fantastic bartender and service
Beautiful, romantic decor! Delicious, artistic food!
Superbe! Ambiance et cuisine suprêmes depuis tant d’années!
This restaurant has grown tired and stodgy. It is small and rather noisy. The food is classic French, nicely presented and reasonably good, but expensive and lacking creativity. Thirty years plus ago, this was a place to see and be seen. However, it needs a refresh of its' menu and its' atmosphere much as the Four Seasons recently underwent. On the decline, would not recommend.
Great restaurant with amazing food. Unfortunately we were seated upstairs and not in the main dining area, so we missed out on the beautiful flowers and decoration of the main room. Overall a great experience.
Always special and always excellent especially the dover sole.
It’s perfection at every level. Food, service and ambiance...
I have been to restaurants all over the world and this restaurant is arguably the most romantic and most beautiful I have found anywhere my fiance and I went to log on WE to celebrate our engagement to be married and we were treated like royalty we will be back often
I had dover sole as main dish and it was very good.
We arrived an hour earlier than our assigned lunch reservation. Without hesitation, we were escorted into the elegant dining room on a cloud of warm hospitality and thoughtful, efficient service. From beginning to end, the food and the experience of it were inseparable and outstanding. The flavors, the pairings and all the small touches made this a meal to remember. The portions were just right ( on the smaller side) and the wine list was brief but well chosen.
Imagine yourself in a Renoir painting with French-speaking patrons surrounded by huge urns of fresh flowers and budded shrubs nodding over the velvet banquette and the watchful captain and his staff silently attending to every detail of the meal. It was a magical experience I look forward to enjoying again.
As an aside, my companion was introduced to La Grenouille at the tender age of 6 (with a very mature palate!) This jewel has not changed in more than 50 years. Simply the best.
Such an elegant ambience with gorgeous flowers, white-glove (but not stuffy) service and wonderful food. Gracious management. A true New York experience. Go for the beautiful dining room. Really enjoyed it.
Our experience was lovely, the service was wonderful, but the crab cake entree , although delicious, was too tiny. There should have been at least two crab cakes for the entree selection.
We felt kind of rushed and were placed at a very busy spot in the restaurant at 5:15. The décor is classic, but the food just mediocre. We could not enjoy the food since it brought out one plate after another and really could not enjoy the experience as a whole. The price is as you would expect, which would not be a problem, but for the quality of food. The wait service was fine. Net net, given the declining number of good French restaurants around, this place will survive.
A fabulous midtown choice for classic French is a beautiful setting, the pre-theater dinner menus is a gem, the service and conviviality from the servers make it that much better!
A.classic. Honestly, there is nothing more to say.
The service was great. My boyfriend and I were there to celebrate his birthday. The waiters sang birthday song in French for him. Sweet!
La Grenouille never disappoints! My wife’s favorite restaurant for her birthday. The staff is always so outstanding, and it is wonderful to see familiar faces every time we visit. Old school service without the stuffiness. One of the very best restaurants in NYC!
We loved it, everything was special. Thank your to you all.
Reasturant needs to update Decor and food . Service was excellent but food taste and quality mediocre and it came very fast like it was prepared . Definitely not a repeat needs a lot of work on food and decor
Please remove those ugly and outdated flowers on the table and in the restaurant. Remove the ugly color of seating and make it more casual. I had to wear a jacket which I almost refused and left the restaurant.
exceeded our expectations. dinner and service could not have been more exceptional
Quintessential French! It’s as if you are in Paris! Waiters with strong French accents, white tablecloths , Flowers on every table, impeccable service. Authentic French dishes like Frogs legs, duck, foie gras, filet. The soufflé as a desert with their smooth house coffee is to die for! A must place to go for those special dinners that celebrate. My number one French restaurant .
Prices are not bargain range, but I say worth
It for the experience , because there is no other restaurant like this anywhere in New York.
