The manchego and fig jam bruschetta was amazing. Portions are generous. When we arrived at 6:30, it was empty and I had some concerns, but from the first bite, I know I will be back. Lamb chops and brussel sprout dish was delicious. My friend had the kale salad and pasta bolognese. We were both happy and satisfied. The restaurant filled as it got later!

Food, wine, & value are outstanding, but physical plant a bit shabby -- veneer peeling off chairs, for example.

Found this thanks to Opentable's suggestion. Great restaurant, really good service and delicious food. Highly recommended. Great for brunch, we had the egg benedict with smoke salmon, although other dishes that passed by for other tables looked also really good and tasty.

I had a really relaxing time, and the waiter was so accommodating. I would definitely recommend anyone who wants to try something with a slower pace to sit down and enjoy their meals.

This was my second time having Saturday brunch here. Both times have been fantastic. It's my new favorite restaurant. The food is delicious. The staff are nice and don't rush you out. Our waiter found out we were celebrating a birthday and brought a free slice of cake with a candle. Will definitely go back with my friends again.

I love this neighborhood gem. It's the first time that I have been there for lunch and the food was good (though think I've had better meals there for dinner.). But, it's a perfect setting to get together in an unhurried environment.

Very disappointed. We sat down and no one acknowledged us besides the person that sat us. Five minutes later, we got up and no one even asked why we were leaving. They weren't that busy but it was just a poor experience. Perhaps the food was good but we will never know.

Went there with my coworker for her birthday lunch, although we mentioned couple of times the occasion, the waiter never acknowledge nor say at least happy birthday.. was completely not interested in making sure that my friend has a good time. Food was just ok, the best was hummus but the eggplant spread was so watery and tasteless. Will not be back.

We had a delightful dinner with friend visiting from Italy who is an organic food producer. She thought everything was fresh and we'll prepare. Salad dressing was light and delicious. She enjoyed her vegetable couscous. Hummus clearly house made fresh. Owner steered us to a very nice wine as well. We will definitely put it on our "go back to" list. Not far from our hotel near Times Square. We enjoyed a leisurely walk back so also convenient.

Lalisse is a small and cozy spot with nice atmosphere. The service was good and wine list very good. We ordered bruschetta which was ok nothing fancy and a bit pricey for what it was. Ditto on the mains- underwhelming with a hefty price tag. A bit disappointing considering the good reviews it received.

There's definitely a language barrier - the waitresses kept misunderstanding the order. The salad, appetizers & main course were all served at the same time - supposedly because "everything was ordered at the same time".

Second time here for brunch and it was still great. Loved the eggs Benedict, bruschetta, Mediterranean omelet. Missed the roasted potatoes from last visit--didn't enjoy the cold potato salad as much but it was still fine. Would definitely return.
