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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Our second visit to Le Gigot, this time to introduce another couple, was as splendid as the first. This restaurant has an extraordinary personality and ambiance all its own, not to mention a superb menu and wine list. Happily, for those diners who cringe at the thought of stuffily pretentious dining, Le Gigot offers a genuinely warm and unpretentious service from start to finish. I can't imagine a better dining experience in NYC. But keep it quiet, OK?

A hidden gem! Many thanks to Open Table because we would have never found this restaurant if it were not for the filter features on the site. We were in Manhattan for work on Friday and decided to have a dinner date afterwards. I wanted to steer clear of Italian food and was really looking for a cozy, relaxed, intimate place with delicious food-an unpretentious evening, you know? This place was it and then some! The food was amazing, my husband had the beef bourguignon and I had the pork tenderloin-we shared and both were to die for! We also had the escargot and mussels which were both equally delicious, along with crusty bread we used to mop up the broth from the mussels and a bold French wine. Definitely a place where the locals hang out and everyone was friendly-we felt like we lived in the neighborhood too! Impeccable service by Daniel and staff and I hope that we can come here again soon! I highly recommend this restaurant!
