Wonderful food, wonderful staff and service. A definite go back to. OFTEN
We've been to this lovely restaurant a number of times over the last 10 to 15 years and it never disappoints. It's small, cosy and intimate; you feel like you're dining in the south of France. And you can actually have a conversation, which is increasingly difficult in so many Manhattan restaurants these days. The service is excellent, and the quality and presentation of food consistently good. They only serve wine, and the wine list is limited but nonetheless with decent choices (if a bit pricey). Highly recommended.
I recently had Sunday brunch here and loved it. We ordered from the prix fixed menu. The food was perfectly prepared and proportioned. It is one of the few places left where you can actually sit down and talk without being overtaken by loud crowds and hipsters. Civilized, great food and service, at a cost that wont break the bank. A rare gem!
Love Gigot, just wish it wasn't quite so cramped. Would be nice to add spirits to bar
Le Gigot is ALWAYS perfect. Loved our meal and can't wait to get back there!
Great food, excellent service ...highly recommend as an intimate low key place to eat. Very amicable to food allergies too
Wonderful experience. Loved the atmosphere and the food - plus it was quiet so we could engage in conversation without yelling like most brunch spots in NY.
This is definitely one of the west village's hidden gems. The place itself has a lovely French vibe, and the food is fantastic! Great for a dinner with a small group of friends, or certainly a date night out.
Excellent bistro fare with friendly and professional service. Wine choices limited but good selections. Real treat.
If you like French food Le Gigot is a must. Service is excellent. The wine selection is limited but all are good choices. The duck confit and pappardelle with short ribs are favorites. For desert try the banana flambé or the brioche pudding.
This was our second time to Le Gigot and it was just as good as we remembered. It's a tiny space-- very cozy ,warm, and off the beaten path. The food is outstanding and the service was great too. My husband got the coq a vin and I had the arctic char. Both were so flavorful. We cleaned our plates! Great place for a date or special occasion. Can't wait to go back.
A quiet, small enclave on a side street in the West Village. Authentic French bistro cuisine, simply prepared, with a small but astute wine list. One of the few American establishments that is genuinely managed in the best of informal French cuisine traditions.
Had brunch. A cute place with a great staff. The food was very good.
Le Gigot is the most authentic French cuisine I’ve had in quite some time. Everything was delicious (I wish I had asked if I could go home with a loaf of their bread), but the Crème Brûlée was perfection.
We went for a special dinner for our son's birthday. The food was perfect I had the special, Sea Bass with roasted vegetables... perfection.
We finished off with Crème Brulee and Bananas Flambé not sure which one I enjoyed more.
Both my husband and son had wonderful meals, lamb stew and beef bourguignon.
One of our favorite NYC restaurants. The gracious owner, the efficient wait and bus staff, the consistently wonderful food (everything on the menu is worth ordering) all combine for a lovely dining experience. And in addition, you can have a conversation with your dining companions without shouting. All in all, a special restaurant.
A fantastic, cozy gem with delicious food. We’ll be back!
Mid week so not crowded and wonderful in all respects: delicious food, great service, comfortable ambience. Kind of a neighborhood country French restaurant. We loved it as we have before.
Once again Le Gigot does not disappoint. The best duck confit I have ever had. My husband loves the bouillabaisse. The service is quietly attentive. We found this gem years ago and keep coming back.
We were looking for a small, reasonably priced restaurant to meet new friends and get to know them better. Le Gigot was a perfect choice. It's small and intimate, and at 6:00 pm we had it almost to ourselves. The food was great: beef bourguignon, bouillabaisse and hanger steak - not a morsel left on anyone's plate. Even though the restaurant is very small, we didn't feel pressured to leave after we were done. Will definitely go back and recommend it to friends.
This place is a gem. Great food, even better service.
Great food. Great service. Attentive staff!
Moules Provencale, Esgargot very good.
Ongelet & Frites prepared perfectly.
Sea bass special was great.
Cassoulet was the best i have had since I was in the south of France!
Can't wait to go again.
One of our favorite restaurants, the food is very good and creative. We particularly love the crabcakes, which are the best we've ever had, including crabcakes served on the Maryland shore. The restaurant is small and a bit cramped, and the service is quite timely, knowledgeable and personal.
Great French comfort food served up by a great staff. Quarters are a bit tight but isn't that the Paris experience? Every one on staff was extremely friendly, personable, and helpful - thoroughly enjoyable! The frisee salad was one of the most delicious salads I've ever had.
Love this spot - one of my favorites. Amazing gluten-free options!!
Great for a date or to take your out-of-town friends. Food was delicious. Really enjoyed the creme brûlée. Will definitely go back again.
shades of the old village. this cozy place on a quiet west village street is just right for a romantic dinner. french bistro food excellent, attentive servers, noise level fosters conversation. worth a try; a return place for us.
This is my favorite restaurant and I can’t give it enough superlatives!!!! I don’t want the atmosphere to ever change—it is divine in its warmth.
I love Le Gigot. Not trendy, just good, well prepared. I go here frequently
This is a lovely, special restaurant! The food is always superb; and the service excellent as well.
Le Gigot is one of our favorite restaurants. It never disappoints. The restaurant is small, charming , friendly and the authentic French food is exceptional. Favorites on the menu , duck confit and bouillabaisse.
My friends and I had not seen each other for some time so we chose Le Gigot. We wanted someplace quaint, family owned and with a great ambience. I had been there before as had one of my other friends , who loves the place so much that when I suggested it , she got very excited!
We had a most fabulous dining experience and my two other friends who have never been there said that they would definitely come back again!
It is honestly, and “not to miss” place.
Cozy, French Brasserie. Food was delicious but tables are close together in this venerable west village establishment.
Well executed classic French dishes at reasonable prices in a small cozy restaurant. We ate at 10:00 pm after a show and had great friendly service with no rush. The Frisee salad has just the right touch of everything, mustard, balsamic, blue cheese, bacon...Bouef Bourguignon and Cassoulet are exactly what you want them to be - simple, hearty, traditional french comfort food. I also love the lamb special available twice a week. Love this place.
Never disappoints! Great go to restaurant for small group dinners.
The food was delicious!!! Excellent and unpretentious, with great service
Wonderful cosy atmosphere with a menu full of creative dishes that will send every last taste bud to work with a smile.
A wonderful restaurant serving excellent food in a non-pretentious French style bistro / brasserie environment. The crab salad with avocado in a fig vinaigrette was superb followed by the best in a few years duck confit that i had as well as a lapin (rabbit / hare) stew. Finished with a classic, black bean creme brûlée, the experience was amazing.
Service is attentive and very professional. The wine list by the glass could benefit an upgrade.
A place to come back for certain.
Always an amazing experience and food is outstanding.
We went for a birthday celebration. Overall a nice meal with quite authentic French food. The Gigot and duck were both particularly good as was the tarte tatin. Unfortunately we were seated next to a very large and loud group which spoiled the atmosphere a bit but certainly not the restaurant’s fault. It’s not cheap but you do get quality ingredients and food.
