Dylan the server was really good and his recommendations were superb !! Coming back for sure
Quality food, excellent service. Cristian was outstanding as always.
Loved our Christmas lunch!!! Every thing was festive and friendly!
I love this place! What a perfect Christmas Eve for 2020.
Neighborhood staple. Love it so much.
There should be a wind barrier to shield customers just a little from the wind coming from north and south and East and west. It’s a lot when you are at the corner table.
We had to wait 30+ mins past our reservation time for our table to be ready. Unacceptable.
It was our first time having brunch here, we previously only had dinners. The food and service was impeccable. Under these unprecedented times, it’s comforting to know the team at Lafayette is taking all the necessary precautions to keep everyone both diners and staff safe.
The outdoor dining experience was terrific. Tables were far apart and we appreciated the heat lamps. Hats off for the restaurant's adaptation.
It was a cold and windy day but food was great, service and everything else wonderful as always.
fantastic brunch food. everything perfectly prepared, service attentive. Miss the bakery, hope it can come back soon!
Lovely French brasserie / cafe - one of if not my absolute favorite in NYC. Will always recommend this establishment to anybody looking for a memorable meal or visiting NYC from out of town. They’ve installed heaters outdoors for those that prefer to avoid indoor dining, which work very well. I’ve been to Lafayette upwards of 10 times and have no plans to go elsewhere anytime soon when looking for more upscale French cuisine.
Delicious food, great service
Despite it being a cold and windy night, the strong heaters and street barrier made for a protected and lovely night out. My husband and I split the cheese fondue special which was delicious. Hope it’s a regular on the menu as it’s a definite keeper. The staff as always flawless and friendly. Highly recommend!
We had a lovely thanksgiving dinner. It was a bit pricey for what we got, and the deserts were a bit disappointing, but the food was really good.
Fabulous experience with great food. Brunch was great value as well.
We made our lunch reservation for outdoor seating, and the restaurant kindly agreed. When we arrived, one of our party of 3 wanted to sit indoors because of the cold. The staff generously made the change, and we all felt that the ventilation and spacing and masking in the restaurant made us very safe even in the indoor seating.
The food was fabulous--I loved my short rib sandwich--and the staff was as always very courteous and professional. This restaurant always was, and still is, a favorite. We're so glad Lafayette is still open.
Great pomme frites and lemon pancakes. A ton of outdoor seating.
Everything was amazing!!! Especially their baked goods. Super high quality and unique flavors.
Sat outside under heat lamps and enjoyed a wonderful simple meal at Lafayette on a Saturday night! Felt safe. All staff in masks. Everything clean. Good service. Perfect ambiance outside!
The very best french fries! They world rival the fries in Paris!!
Amazing job post covid
This is our favorite restaurant, great service, ambience and food. Well designed.
Food was mediocre. Service was soooo slow. Outdoor dining was not available because they said there was a separate reservation that I did not see. We left asap once we were done with breakfast
Another good brunch at Lafayette which has great food... The waiter Dylan F was very personable in customer service too.
My favorite restaurant. So perfect.
It’s a beautiful space. That night be the best thing going for it. The food is expensive and not really amazing. They forgot one of our dishes. The coffee was bitter and undrinkable. It took about 30 minutes between when we first ordered coffee and finally paid the check.
It’s a beautiful venue, I’m guessing maybe they just had an off night. Dinner was fine but likely won’t go back
Great food great service. Nice outdoor setting but needs more heat lamps with winter approaching.
Outdoor dining was done well. However music was too loud. With outside traffic, no need for loud music. Next time we will sit closer to the corner of E. 3rd St
Went for the fun atmosphere and we're happily surprised by the outstanding food. French bistro comfort food at its best!
Excellent experience. Loved everything! Would highly recommend this beautiful restaurant!
Oh the onion soup! Simply divine, the rest is not much worth writing about. I will always visit for the onion soup!
So disappointed as Lafayette is usually lovely. We had a 9:30pm reservation as that was the only availability for a party of our size. The minute we checked in, the host stated that we had to order right away as the kitchen was closing. This is something that should be communicated when we made the reservation, as I'm not sure we would've been okay with that. Maybe make your last reservation earlier then? I understand there are constraints right now but it automatically causes panic for the customer. Making the last reservation time 9 or even 9:15 would allow for a bit more time to read the menu and make choices. My friend and I shared the steak (we weren't very hungry and also thought it was quite pricey at $55) and it was fatty and chewy. You can get an amazing steak at so many other restaurants in the city for a more reasonable price. Finally, we were on our appetizers and the server notified us that it was last call for alcohol. So we had to scramble to finish our drinks and order another round in order to have drinks with our entrees. Another reason why an earlier last reservation time would be helpful.
I know we are all struggling with restrictions right now but it seemed like they were trying to squeeze in an extra seating but didn't really have the capacity to do so.
Great meal and ambiance as always at Lafayette. Was a bit cold outdoors since our table wasn’t right next to a heat lamp
Excellent front of house professionals;
Disappointed with unaccommodating kitchen and forgetful server.
The 4 stars are only because we sat outside and there is a fire station just a block away!
Great outdoor socially distanced meal with older parents
Lovely evening outdoor dining. Our server was so nice and the manager was accommodating. Loved the new edition to the menu which was a fondue. Hope that stays as it was a big hit with our group.
