It was an early anniversary dinner and one of the best meals of our lives. I can see why it is such a staple of the BYC dining scene. We will be back, again. It was spectacular!

Our evening at La Grenouille was memorable. The ambience established a dining experience in beautiful flower-filled surroundings with elegant table settings. Gracious staff took our dinner requests and presented them to us at the appropriate time. The wine list provided an abundance of choices to accompany our selections of Lobster Bisque and La Salade Grenouille, Boeuf Bourguignon and Apple Tarte. Our delicious dinner was served by the professional and almost invisible staff. We savored our coffee and then asked for the bill. There was no rush to complete the evening even though we had selected the pre-theatre offering. Perfection.

We came to La Grenouille to celebrate our anniversary.
We arrived a little early for our reservation so we took a seat at the bar. It was a pleasure to meet the bartender Tony and taste some of his drink creations! Best cosmo ever!
The tasting menu was wonderful, as always, and service from Bertrand was impeccable. This is a special place, not to be missed. If you appreciate classic, traditional French food and a magical atmosphere, La Grenouille is for you.

Great romantic place for special occasions, dates or anniversaries.
1. Overall - the flower arrangements were amazing and the entire place had floral aroma.
2. Food - the tastes of our selections were great, appetizer portion a bit smaller than I expected but main course and desert were right amount.
3. Service - everyone was very attentive and ensure we're having everything we needed. from start to finish.
4. Price - it's a fancy place so be ready to open your wallet. well worth it for those special dates.

The Friend would need to know the price range, but YES! This is a top New York City restaurant. More like a family restaurant for local NYC wealth. The service is excellent and welcoming on occasion.
The Menu is ‘French superior recipes’, excellent wines and even a surprise bit of entertainment now and then. The Valentine lunch clientele were treated to a charming serenade by Philippe one of the owners. Now this is not a regular event but it was thoroughly charming nonetheless. Still one should not count on such charm. This is a serious French restaurant renown for excellent service, superior food and beautiful atmosphere. We had not been there for a year yet one the servers José recognized and greeted us with an honest welcome, nice. Of course the owners are always gracious and accommodating as well.

Outstanding, personal (and personable!), and classic service adds to the testimonial French ambiance. Food was flawless with our selections ranging from foie grad ravioli to oysters to duck to Dover sole. Wines were well selected.
The only downside? It doesn’t come cheap. But for a rare dining experience - and great evening out...we were there 3+ hours but the time flew by - it is worth it

From the moment we walked in to the moment we left we were treated with the utmost respect and care. Its been a long time since I was fortunate enough to experience elegance like this in New York, along with the quality of food and wine.
So please treat yourself to the last bastion of a what dining should be

Wonderful dinning experience. Wait staff was friendly and helpful, food excellant, soufflé was perfect. Ambiance is special, with noise level, allowing for quiet conversation. Wine prices bit high and corkage $100, but I guess it is worth it if you bring an appropriate bottle. Will return on special occasions and when budget allows for it. Anyway kudos to all.

It was my first trip to New York and my first restaurant. We ate off the pre theater menu, which was a very good value. The place smelled like a rose garden. Fresh beautiful flowers everywhere. The service and food were excellent. I felt very spoiled and would definitely recommend!

The lobster medallion salad (with the exception of the lobster meat) was cold as ice. It clearly had been made that morning and was sitting in a fridge waiting to be ordered. Not cool when you consider how much they charge for it. Cold avocado and lettuces simply don’t have the rich flavors they do when they are served at room temperature. You would think a high-end restaurant staff would be aware of this. And the bouillabaisse I ordered as a main had very little taste. Very disappointing. The chocolate soufflé, on the other hand, was the one really good part of the meal. And service was mediocre at best and gruff at times. Again, not cool. I won’t be going back there for sure.

Very disappointing. The food was average & in very small portions. The staff was polite, but unfriendly & condescending. For the price, it should have met a much higher standard. It’s no wonder that it’s the last of its kind.

Well, when we first walked in there were bugs crawling on our table... then came the food. It was mediocre at best, definitely not worth the money. We were the only ones in the restaurant not over 50 years old. The icing on the cake was getting violently ill after eating there though. Stay away!
