Took my 9 year old daughter for dinner before a school dance. We started with escargot, which she absolutely loved even knowing what it was. She had the filet au poive, and the sauce was mind blowing.
This is a neighborhood restaurant that has always been excellent. The food & service are as good as it gets. Lunch is always the best time to enjoy an excellent meal. Lunch is usually a business meeting and the restaurant has always excelled.
We had a lovely meal. The host was gracious and warm. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Our anniversary celebration at Le Penguin was perfect. Thank you for the champagne toast!
We had a 9pm reservation on a Saturday night - and the restaurant (which is about the size of my living room) was absolutely packed. Noise level was very loud. We were seated in a corner table for 4 at the back which was nice, but still needed to shout to hear each other. There were 3 birthdays being celebrated and the restaurant, which I thought was upscale French bistro, turned into a TGIFridays - loud hip hop music and waiters clapping everytime a birthday dessert was served. Seriously? If the food had been worth it, I would have let all that slide. But my steak frites - pretty standard French bistro fare - was average at best...and also arrived already sliced. Overpriced for underwhelming food in a raucous environment. Will not go back.
this restaurant is usually satisfactory. Food is good.
The service is always good, the food tasty and the staff friendly. We enjoy this establishment for lunch, brunch or dinner - always welcoming!
Food here is consistently delicious, omelette was warm and light, fine wines by the glass and bottle. Service is always attentive. It can get quite crowded and very loud, and you can be very near your neighbor.
We had a wonderful dinner at a Le Penguin! The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The trout almandine was amazing. The cozy but very accommodating atmosphere contributed to a very relaxed and enjoyable evening. We actually were the last table to leave. The staff was very gracious and not rushing us out the door.
Super delicious, beautifully arranged food, cozy and warm atmosphere, prompt and kind service ... We had a great corner table - the best place in the whole restaurant, we thought! We will come again quite soon! A special plus for serving the espresso and dessert at the same time, because this usually doesn't work in most restaurants we've been at. Perfect timing!
I brought my friend for her birthday. The lunch was lovely and we had a very good experience. I had booked through OpenTable and specified that it was for a birthday. Several other tables were celebrating birthdays and the waiters sang, etc. Unfortunately, no one came to our table with a song and a candle. I was disappointed but it was still a great lunch.
Just a perfect meal, once again, from beginning to end!
Sharp, friendly service, without being over bearing and intrusive.
Gorgeous food and fast friendly service made for a perfect date night with my husband. Definitely an experience we will repeat again soon! Thank you
Love Greenwich and Westport. One of my very favorite restaurants. Food and service are always great!!!
Great burger....Meat dishes are the way to go here. They do great burgers and steak frites.
The absolute BEST French
Just terrific in every respect. The server was incredibly attentive, the bus boy not intrusive and the food absolutely delicious. A true Greenwich gem.
What an absolute gem. Such a cute French bistro. Felt like we were back in Paris. The food was amazing. The tuna tartare was delicious. The steak frites were to die for. Will definitely go back next time we’re in town.
Great family lunch....wonderful food, excellent wine and professional and kind service. Yet another fabulous experience at yours!
Great food and service!
Great Place - Best Restaurant of Greenwich
Food is incredible
Very nice and friendly professionals
Specials of the day are usually really specials
The food was excellent but very noisy!
Tight seating with your neighbors made it difficult to converse with each other
The food was traditional french bistro and exceedingly well executed. Service was fast and friendly. Will definitely go back and I am happy to highly recommend it.
Waiter service was exceptional. They waited until we were ready to order. When we ordered and received an appetizer and entrée perfectly. The luncheon special was excellent the only thing missing was a glass of wine which we did not order because we had to go back to work.
We love Le Penguin and never grow tired of it. My husband and I love date night there, my girlfriends all agree it’s the best for lunch dates, it’s always delicious and special.
Been here several times and very much enjoy the food and ambience.
Always a favorite for us. Great food, great atmosphere and great service! Very consistent.
Great food, terrible service. Once I brought up my wife's food allergies the waitress treated us like pariahs.
Nicola is probably the best waitperson in the area. Food was fantastic! Will definitely go back again and again.
It was so loud. Acoustics are really terrible... Our waitress brought out the wrong entree for my husband (likely because she misheard it with all of the noise!). Then she topped off his glass of sparkling water with tap water; when we tried to tell her to stop, she was looking the other way. Frustrating experience!
Fantastic food and a lovely evening. Can't wait to go again.
Food is spectacular! We've just moved to the neighborhood and it was great surprise to find out such a good french food!
"Moules marinières" were very good, Roquefort endives very disappointing as the "vinaigrette sauce" was very strong (too much white balsam vinegar) and just some real tiny bits (I could hardly feel the taste of the cheese and this is my favorite!) of real Roquefort cheese.
Wine was good but over priced: Malbec $14 and Rosé Minuti $12.
We did not try the desserts.
The waiters were nice.
Excellent dinner, lively spot and friendly service. Worth the drive!
Very enjoyable and good was delicious. Came out to Greenwich from the city to meet friends.
The best place ever.
I received a lecture after the reservation and while seated with business guests that we had to be finished by 8:30-perfectable acceptable to say that with the reservation totally unacceptable when it hasn't been and is done if front of serious guests and with a very stern unforgiving manner. What's worse is that by 8:30 the place had emptied out and two thirds of the tables were available. Had it not been for my guests I would have stood up and said then you can have the table right now and walked out. A remarkable lack of diplomacy.
Our experience was excellent. We were greeted and seated immediately. They even texted me to let me know that my table was ready early! Everything was delicious and the icing on the cake, they surprised us with a birthday candle and song for my husband! We will definitely be returning! and bringing friends!
The food was excellent ,as always . The staff very friendly especially our waiter Edwin
I always love coming here with my husband but was lucky enough to have a quiet dinner there with my 10 year old son. He has numerous server allergies and the waiter and staff were just incredible and happy to make sure his meal was not only delicious but 100% safe for him! Thank you Le Penguin!!!!
Loved it! Corner table is so nice -- intimate and relatively private for a couple. Food and service were perfect.
