Excellent French Food Restaurant, the staff is very friendly and professional, the place is stylish and elegant with beautiful European detailed decoration.
The food is delicious, my husband and I tried the bacon Brussels sprouts, the lamb tajine and the Roasted duck.
We’ll definitely go back for more.
I love to visit this restaurant when I’m in town. I also know that they use really good ingredients in their food. The coffee’s are excellent. When I visit New York I make a point of eating here at least once. If you don’t have time for a meal you can always visit their bakery section which is also very good.
Come here very year for Valentine’s Day. The service is amazing as always and the food never disappoints
We were referred here a couple of years ago by a bartender while visiting NYC......Suggested we come for the Croque Madame. We did and it was amazing. Two years later, we were back in NYC for our wedding anniversary and brunch at Lafayette was on our list of things to do. The Croque Madame was just as delicious as we remembered. Service is impeccable. Restaurant is charming. We wish we lived closer so we could try more things on the menu. Definitely one of my most memorable brunches - ever.
Great food, very personable service, good atmosphere.
We had a great time to enjoy the good food in Lafayette.
The duck is absolutely perfect in every way!
Very nice decor, excellent service and food. Would definitely recommend it.
Food was great. A little pricey without restaurant week menu.
Always reliable brunch spot
Lafayette has been my favorite restaurant for years, and this visit was no different. The food is excellent, the cocktails are delightful, and it doesn’t try to be anything it’s not.
Too dark had a hard time reading the menu
Restaurant week was a good way to try out a few courses for a good price. Great service and food.
Staff was pleasant enough and professional . I took my niece for dinner after seeing the blue man group . The ambiance was satisfying . We were greeted at the door immediately by a pleasant young man . The restaurant was not busy . It was an early Sunday eve . The food came out very quickly . The presentation was blah . The food looked and tasted like it had been sitting awhile . Not fresh at all . The French onion soup had a rich flavor . The shank of beef was one bite of meat . I ordered the Brussels sprouts with smoked bacon . Nothing special and too salty .My niece ordered the black macaroni with seafood and tomato sauce . The cuttle fish was overly chewy and the sauce was very unbalanced with an overwhelming lemon flavor . I skipped on dessert because of the extravagant price and the uncertainty of freshness . They have an attached bakery and I felt the dessert may have been sitting for awhile .Overall I was disappointed . The price charged was not worth it .
I was looking forward to the French toast, but they ran out. This seems to be a popular dish, therefore it should be available until brunch is over.
I have always liked Lafayette. And I have recommended it to many folks including clients. But this time it was so disappointing.
Good food, but overpriced for what it is. Nice atmosphere and fairly quiet. Attentive service.
Great food. Quieter than the likes of Smith, so is pleasant to talk. Bit expensive - good for a treat.
My family and I have dined here multiple times over the last few years and have always had great experiences here. Warm and welcoming, the staff is friendly and attentive, the food always top notch. French standards plus specials always done to perfection. Prices are not inexpensive but for what you get they are totally worth it. Don’t forget desert. Fantastic pastries and specials. Have never had anything that wasn’t great.
Great service! From hostess to wait staff, everyone was so lovely. Food was delicious and casual French, great option for brunch with a friend or a larger group.
Never disappointed at Lafayette. Food is great and they are so accommodating! Baked goods are the best.
Food, wine and service were great. The place is a bit too noisy.
Stopped in for breakfast on a Saturday and was a bit more than what we were looking for. Initially we were looking for a quick bite, but we were so glad we stayed. The restaurant decor is very French feeling and the food was delicious. We had the lemon pancakes with fresh berries and Anson Mills oatmeal. Nothing fancy, but man were they scrumptious. The pancakes were substantial with the best berry compote on top. Didn't even need syrup. I love the oatmeal for it's simplicity, and the fruit stewed in cognac were superb! I would definitely go back and loved the location. Only fault was slow service for the check because they were having printer issues. Otherwise, a great choice!
Great meal, service was a bit lackluster.
Delish authentic French food - unexpected in the US. Very good service, beautiful room, great vibe. Loved it!
Nice place. What I was expecting as it was recommended by a trusted foody.
Excellent well prepared food in a sophisticated setting . Service pays great attention to details.
Service was excellent, especially given the crowd. The bacon was gooey and impossible to chew. The Virgin Mary crazy slaty. Yuck. Other food was good. The pancakes were drenched in fruit syrup though, which made them soggy on arrival. Scrambled eggs great.
Met old friends for brunch. We had the absolute nicest waiter! Simple orders - omelets and croque madame. All delicious. Good strong coffee - only complaint is that the milk or cream comes in tiny ramekins. Our lovely waiter was happy to bring more as requested however.
we went to Lafayette on New Years' Day for lunch and it was surprisingly busy, but we were well taken care of and out in plenty of time to get to our show. Food was great, service felt personal and attentive. Decor is ok, comfortable and not quite as cramped as a real French bistro. Overall very very good and will definitely go again
Delicious brunch as usual ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Delicious French food in a great space
We will gladly return
Incredible service. Amazing staff. I brought my mom to NYC after she brought me 30 years ago. This was her highlight.
Delicioso!!!!! Es garantía 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I ordered the squab with black truffles at $60 and they cooked the sauce with truffles so that the aroma was gone. The truffles should be fresh so they can add to the aroma of the dish not cooked with the sauce.
Christmas lunch! Such a wonderful restaurant, wonderful food and team members! Our waiters recommendations were terrific! Thank you so much for a memorable meal! Merry Christmas’
Christmas Eve. This was my third visit in the last six months. As always the wait staff is friendly , knowledgeable and courteous. I like the fact that the music is not too loud and overwhelming the conversation. This past visit, my guests and I ordered pasta dishes for our main course. Although good, we have found as on previous occasions that they were too salty. Salt can always be added if needed but never taken away. I cannot speak for other dishes on the menu at this time.
Great restaurant !
Amazing. Food is incredible. Dry aged duck was insane. Great service and somm knew his stuff.
