Lovely and such a treat. Only thing is that we were pre theatre so would have loved to just spend more time to relax and enjoy with another bottle of excellent wine. Next time in NYC we would love to just go there on a non theatre night

The hosts were amazing and so welcoming. The place is beautiful and romantic, older crowd, but I’m guessing it’s because it is a historic kind of place. My husband and I had a choice of two tables which we could pick, we picked the side by side one which was unique. The only thing was the lamp cord was right in between us when we ate which looked pretty bad. But the table otherwise had a nice, cozy set up. The captain was professional, business only, no smile no conversation. He got the job done. I wish he was more clear about explaining the souffles, it was a little difficult understanding him and we ended up ordering one too many, but it was fine because they were both very good. There was one pesky fly at our table most of the night, and the waiters looked on and did nothing. Not sure what they could’ve done but they were watching us swatting our hands around the table practically the whole night. Overall I enjoyed it, service was like the typical, high brow French place like in the movies. Food was amazing and it was a romantic evening.

La Grenouille is perfect for a special occasion. My husband took me there for my birthday and we had a wonderful dinner. We both had duck breast with an orange sauce. It was done to perfection. The service was superb and the atmosphere quite romantic.

First of all, the setting is exquisite. The flower arrangements are over the top. The dining room is formal, but not stuffy. The staff was attentive, efficient and friendly. The food was wonderful. We ordered from the pre theater menu—a great value for the quality of food. Next time we are in NY, I hope to dine here again.

La Grenouille never fails to impress. The food & service are top notch. My wife had the lobster medallions which she loved. I was undecided between the Chilean sea bass & the Dover sole. Our server recommended the Dover sole. Absolutely the best I have ever had. Perfectly cooked & seasoned and the mustard hollandaise put it over the top. The service is very attentive without being intrusive. The excellent wine list deserves mention as well. It is pricey but well worth it.

Always a joy to dine at Le Grenouille! The lobster ravioli was delicious and the lamb chops were cooked to perfection. I always save room for the caramel soufflé! Excellent service with neighborhood charm.

It's a favorite of mine for decades. The ambiance, food and service are unmatched anywhere in the world. My only disappointment was that Armel was not there. I might not visit for 5 years but he always (pretends) he remembers me.

My birthday dinner with out of town visitors was magical. I started with a glass of champagne and had the lobster medallions and the vanilla souffle for dessert among many other wonderful things in between. We sent our compliments to the chef and kitchen staff. I'd go back in a NY minute.

Food and service were excellent. Decor looking just a little tired. Where New York fine dining is concerned, I tend to compare everything with my gold standard, Le Bernardin. La Grenouille is in the tier of restaurants just below Le Bernardin but still very good and great for a romantic dinner.

This is a very special restaurant, everything is prepared to perfection (even the bread they bring to your table is outstanding) and served beautifully. If feels like you’ve flown to Paris in a different, more gracious, era. The Dover sole with mustard béarnaise is marvelous. Did not try the frogs legs but the pate was outstanding and the soufflés for dessert are a delight. Nothing cutting edge in terms of the menu but that’s not what one goes here for.

Always an incredible event! Truly a luxury experience with zero comparison. The flowers, food, wine and cocktails were superb but it is the service that stands out. Truly the last of a dying breed of restaurants where you feel the staff is happy to see you and serve you a wonderful dinner.

Amazing experience. The Owner met us at the door and was so incredibly personable. Made us feel so welcome and special. The Captain waited on our table, and was so knowledgeable, attentive, and helpful with suggestions. The food was absolutely spectacular. My friend had the Dover Sole, and stated it was the absolute best she has ever had. I had the fillet, and it was cooked to perfection. The chocolate soufflé was to die for. La Grenouille has established itself as one of the best restaurants in NYC, and we concur wholeheartedly. This restaurant is truly over the top in quality, attentiveness, service, ambience, personality, and everything else that goes along with it. You have to see the flower arrangements that are personally created by the Owner. Exquisite.

$179 pre fixe was way overpriced for what the food is.
The steak and Dover sole are two of their best items but not to the same standard at le Coucou, which isn’t even at this price point. Tasty but fairly average in presentation and flavor. Lobster salad starter also tasty and maybe the one item worth the price. They had “turned off the stove” so neighboring table couldn’t even order the desert they wanted. Until when two people next to our table complained to several waiters and the manager that the experience was subpar. This should be $80 pre fixe max for what it is.
