About

Even among the plethora of dining options in New York City, Les Halles on Park Avenue stands out from the rest. The rich mahogany, warm colors and French decor match beautifully with this Parisian brasserie-style restaurant. This restaurant is known for two things. The first are Les Halles' cuts of meat. French butchering and wet aging make the meat delicious and tender. The second are the award-winning French fries.

The menu at Les Halles is extensive, pleasing most anyone's palate whether it's for lunch or dinner. Opt for a signature steak such as the faux-filet Bercy, or branch out and try coq au vin, rooster cooked in wine and bacon. Pair the meal with a selection of vintage wine and finish with a tarte, flambée or sorbet.

The original plaster moldings date from the early 1900’s when the building was erected to house a restaurant specialized in healthy foods. The most famous menu item at the time (a blend of fresh vegetable juiced to order) was later licensed and bottled under the brand V8!

Great steaks.

Excellent food and very friendly service.

You feel transported back into the French 1950s, true delight.

Wine was ok - we ordered by the glass, would recommend ordering by the bottle instead.

Will definitely go back

There's no real service here. Our waitress clearly was just there to write down our order and move on. We were never asked how the food was during our meal. My steak was overcooked and just bland. I think the restaurant was busy from tourists who read 'kitchen confidential', like myself. I wanted this to be a great experience but it was a let down.

Recently dined at this restaurant. The food was great, the selection was great as well. As we are Canadians, when you calculate the exchange rate, the dinner is more in the price range of a fancy Toronto restaurant, which makes it more pricey than usual. However, I have noticed that most good New York restaurants are pricey. I would still return since the food and service were very good. Service and seating was prompt.

Love this restaurant but last night the server was pushing our meal--- we were only there for just over an hour but he seemed to really want to flip the table. The streaks were good but not hot as usual but the fries were good as always. Will be back as this is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC.

Solid performance with each visit. Excellent menu of bistro favorites. Service very good. Tables side preparation of classics: steak tartare, bananas foster and crepes Suzette. Not many places where you can still get that kind of service and theater. Highly recommended.

Scallop and the steak sub povie were delicious, as were the escargots. Be sure to try the freshly made mayo and truffle oil with the French fries!

Went on a Friday evening as a party of four. The waitress was in training and very inexperienced. She did not put in one of our appetizer orders, forgot the wine which we requested be served with the entrees, and did not get the side order correct with one of our meals.

The food itself was good, but nothing special. We were seated right next to a large group of men who were loud to the point of us not being able to hear what another person at our table was saying.

On the plus side, the Crepes Suzette, which are prepared table side, were very tasty and a highlight of the meal.
