    Did not know what to expect. There were like 5 people at the door when we entered. We were seated at a small table facing the band area. A little odd was the table light and the cord running between my wife and me. We did the 3 course price fix;186$ I think. Service was attentive. Ordered oysters, shrimp with caviar 30$ extra and split pea soup all was outstanding and very tasteful. Dinner was lobster ravioli and so we sole (sole was filet table side). Both were outstanding as well. Desert was Grand Marnier soufflé and fruit tart. Wow really recommend the soufflé very good. They brought the soufflé with a candle for our occasion. A jazz trio was on stage and the owner sang Sinatra style before a very talented French female singer started. Very very good. The owner seems to want to be a showman lol. A little loud for such a small place as the music made it hard to talk. Over all very nice.

    We really wanted to like our experience, and we did to some degree. The setting was swanky as it might’ve been in the 50s. The restaurant itself is 60 years old and the owner says he has kept it the same way it was when his mother and father owned it. It could probably use some sprucing up. The food was a disappointment. The vichyssoise and the Dover sole were pretty tasteless and the sauce for the fish was thick and room temperature. The passion fruit soufflé crêpe was a huge portion and the crêpe seemed to have been premade in the morning. It was room temperature and a little dry. We walked by the next day as it was near our hotel and looked in the window. You could really tell that it looked aged and tired. This was an anniversary dinner for us, which we announced, but no special recognition was made. We spent over $400, so a glass of champagne might’ve been nice. But it was fun to imagine that my parents might have eaten there during it’s heyday.

    This is an exceptional and class ic NY French restaurant. While it has been around for 60 years, it is still fresh, elegant and top notch. Perfect for a special occasion or for a romantic dinner. The elegance of the room adorned with fresh flowers daily conveys the exceptional experience you are about to have. Service is everything you would expect and more. The addition of a nightly jazz trio creates the perfect ambiance. They're incredibly talented , yet subtle and non-obtrusive. Even Phillippe, the owner, will treat you to a couple of songs himself. As for the food, it was outstanding. The souffles are impeccable. The oysters and caviar were perfect. My wife had the signature Dover Sole which was delicious. I had the black sea bass which was delicate, flavorful and as fresh as can be. The restaurant does not rush you and by the time you leave you feel like you spent a wonderful night with friends.

    Unbelievably charming restaurant & hospitality. JP , Tony, and the rest of the team were incredibly gracious and accommodating considering my flight into town was delayed and I arrived 30 minutes late to my reservation. They kept the kitchen open, entertained my guest prior to my arrival and the service was impeccable. The French cuisine & wine selection was remarkable. Elegant and refined, yet not stuffy. Thank you for making my birthday so special!

    I haven't been to La Grenouille in many years. It's still a beautiful setting with very pleasant ambiance. The service for this visit was good but not as good as it used to be. Sadly the food was a disappointment. The "Old Blue Eyes" chicken was dry and had very little flavor and was in fact so disappointing that we sent it back. The amount of time it took to come out with the replacement dinner Caesar salad we chose instead was ridiculously long, and although the Captain eventually came out and gave us a complimentary refill on our wine which was appreciated, it still left us with a very long pause and after telling my wife how great the restaurant was going to be, it was kind of embarrassing. The whitefish quenelles were good but the sauce was bland. The wine selections and the souffles were excellent. Not the great treat I was hoping to provide for my wife on her first visit to this restaurant.

    Seated extremely close to another table. This was my husband’s birthday and it was a special one and no recognition. The vichyssoise was horrible, tasteless, bland and green . My husband chose the roasted chicken selection which was also with little flavor. The lobster salad was excellent. Service was poor. The only truly attentive staff member was the gentleman who offered bread selections. Salt and pepper were not even supplied on the table, which might have added some flavor. We have patronized the restaurant previously, but no more. A very expensive and disappointing experience.

    I had not been to the restaurant since the pandemic and I must say it was a treat to return. I do not think I've ever been in a restaurant where there has been such attention to the floral arrangements. Absolutely fabulous! My only constructive criticism would be on the table arrangements which other reviewers have noted it is basically banquet style and the tables are so close to each other that you cannot get out between one or the other you have to wait for the server to come and pull out the table. I mentioned this but they just smile. The only observation was my server who performed in a rather perfunctory way. He rattled off the desserts the souffle so quickly that I had trouble even focusing. I had the feeling I was just another patron to be served and got on my way.

    We came here for our daughter's graduation from Columbia University. It was a wonderful experience being surrounded by floral arrangements and served by attentive waitors. The food was delicious and delicate. I especially loved their Chocolate Souffle. We have already recommended this to my sister.
