We enjoyed everything about our visit to Le Gigot. The meal and wine were fantastic, the wait staff attentive but not overly so, and we could eat outside which was lovely. Will definitely go again when we are in NYC.

Cozy, sweet and charming West Village French restaurant. Classic Parisian bistro fare done superbly. Service is at once friendly, warm and unpretentious yet impeccably stylish and classic. House wine suggestions were perfect. Would be a favorite left bank bistro in Paris. Not cheap but far less expensive than flying there!

Classic French Bistro food. Close your eyes and you are in Paris (I have been there twenty times). Lamb was five stars, as was the Bouillabaisse. Will be back soon to try the rest of menu!

My husband and I were delighted to discover that Le Gigot has survived the pandemic and is still owned by the same people that made this such a special place for over 20 years. We had an early dinner outside on a Sunday evening. The service was friendly, efficient, and very attentive. The menu remains much the same, with stars like fresh oysters and the delicious no-bread-crumbs crab cake for starters. We also enjoyed the pâté maison, the onglet, and the moules frites. My only criticism, and it’s a small one, is that the frites need to be crispier.

Delightful meal with spectacular service. Always nice to see different options on a menu - always fresh, perfectly prepared. I wan not happy with my wine selction - but that was my choice, no fault of theirs. We were a party of 4 that made our reservation only a few days before. Very happy!!!!!! Our first visit to Le Gigot was MANY years ago during one of our many food tours. We have been back twice and look forward to coming back again on our yearly long weekend adventure in NY. Thank you Le Gogot for another wonderful dinner!

Great food and service. Always reliable service and attentive without being rushed. The food is prepared well without allergens and traditionally French. Good quality wines on menu by the glass or bottle. The service is sometimes difficult to track and has some lapses, but nothing critical, because the same waiters also service the outside area which is much larger than the inside one. The noise level inside could get robust when full, but after 9PM that is resolved when fewer people are present at the tables. Suggest some type of sound proofing as the walls, ceiling, tables and floor are all hard surfaces that further amplify the sounds of diners. No music is played which is blessing. Otherwise, a great experience.

We went to Le Gigot for lunch and the brunch and dinner menu were offered. The inside space is cozy, calm and intimate. Both of us had the eggs Benedict which turned out to be a good choice. We will definitely return.

We had a lovely dinner outside. Food was very good. The occasion was marred only by the dessert. the tarte tatin was supposed to be served with creme fraiche but was instead accompanied by a lump of sour cream! Ick. And when I pointed this out to the waiter, he condescendingly explained that the sour cream was really creme fraiche the way it is served in France. Right, sure, like I don’t know what sour cream looks and tastes like!
