Excellent French cuisine. A lively setting populated with loyal regulars. Tourists seem to be the minority.
Close tables and a friendly waitstaff set the tone for a flower filled room.
If your not in a rush and looking for a genuine French setting, this is the place.

Unbelievably wonderful food and service during 2nd visit to this restaurant. Prix fixe lunch was an excellent value, with a starter, main course and dessert. Captain and wait staff make the meal a pleasure. I would highly recommend. Not for the faint of heart financially, but worthwhile and memorable. Try it at least once!

I was hearlfully welcomed and taken to our table. I was 15 minutes earlier than my reserved time. My friend came on time.
Each table Was exquisitely decorated with a vase of different color of roses. Our attendant was friendly and efficient. Foods were excellent.

Splendid as always, La Grenouille has some of the best, if not the best, classic French cuisine in New York City. The upstairs room is as charming, and less formal, than the downstairs one. The menu has changed, removing some of my favorite dishes (rognon, for one), but the substitutions are equally marvelous. Service was excellent, except that our waiter made a point of pushing recommendations on the dishes with surcharges above the already skyhigh prix fixe.

My party of three thoroughly enjoyed our 3 course meals. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was superb. The gorgeous flower arrangements throughout the restaurant and for which it is known were spectacular. The luncheon fixed price of $65.00 was a great value for our delightful dining experience.

Our first visit to this elegant traditional French restaurant. We loved the assortment of hors d'oeuvre & french soup as appetizer. The bouillabaise and filet medallions were both excellent. The chocolate souffle and apple tart were both also delicious.

La Grenouille has always been one of our favorite restaurants - delicious food in a sumptuous atmosphere with superior service. This time, however, we were greatly disappointed. My wife's lobster medallions with ginger was just ok and my roasted chicken in champagne sauce with mushrooms was too dry and not very tasty at all. Very disappointing. The dessert soufflés were very good but still we expect more from a $500 (with wine) dinner.

La Grenouille is still a classic, which is reassuring in this age of change and trendiness. From the moment one arrives, the ambiance is one of gracious refinement. It helps that many of the staff have been there for years, so they know how to treat diners well. The menu selection is extensive, so there is something for every taste. There are nice special touches such as a variety of bread offerings and plates of mignardises (cookies and treats) and chocolates served with coffee. I had requested a quiet table because I had a serious matter to discuss, and the maitre d' kindly accommodated me. It was the first time my guest had dined at La Grenouille, and he was impressed by everything -- especially the flowers. I used to live in Paris and return there often, so for me a meal at La Grenouille feels like being in the City of Light.
