Little Prince is open at 199 Prince Street in SoHo (between Sullivan St. and MacDougal St.) This destination aims to be a cozy neighborhood stand-by.

Featuring classic French bistro items, the menu includes Fluke Meuniere, Bistro Chicken and Steak Frites, in addition to lighter fare such as Quinoa Salad, Ratatouille and Mussels. Signature specials include an “off-menu” French Onion Soup Burger with caramelized onions and gruyere.

Little Prince will also feature a frequently rotating beer program, highlighting unique French and local beers and seasonal French cocktails.

Dramatic floral arrangements accent the light-filled space, which has floor-to-ceiling windows that look out on bustling Prince Street. Caramel banquettes line the walls and the wooden bar is warmly lit by classic globe pendant lamps. Hand-painted ceramic floor tiles complete the bistro ambience.

    Very delicious food and cocktails! I would definitely go back. Although the dessert menu was lackluster and not very appetizing. One thing that I think could be improved is the cleanliness of the glassware

    Chose this restaurant because of its proximity to Soho Playhouse. Good decision! Service was outstanding—never intrusive but always available, even as the room went from a few diners to a full house. We shared a first course of crispy artichokes which was so good that we would never share this again. When we return there will be an order for each of us! The other dishes we had, steak frites, bifteck hache, creme brulee, were all very good for type. The only disappointment was the espresso. Having noticed the classic looking espresso machine behind the bar, I’d looked forward to perfection. But the espresso was thin with minimal crema. I hope it was just an off night for the barista!

    We had to order bread rather than having the bread served with our meal. Then they charged extra for it. This is supposed to be a French restaurant. I’ve traveled to France just about every year since 1974. I’ve lived in four different areas of France for a month at a time. I’ve never ever had to ask for bread, even less been charged separately for it. This is no French restaurant. Never again.

    Love this restaurant any time of the year but it was a really intimate and fun way to spend Valentine’s Day. Oysters were a nice addition but overpriced. We got them anyway. Love the menu and cocktail list. The pink teddy bears dining outside was cute. They also played old films on a projector which gave off a nostalgic feeling. Great evening. Certainly recommend.

    Excellent service and perfectly executed dishes in the meaty heart of accessible classical French cuisine. A touch spendy for the elevation of the food, and the cocktails were hit-or-miss (but overall, solid), but I’m nitpicking because I was impressed but I know they could’ve been a little better. Will be back, and soon.

    Come here all the time and is always very good. Loved that they have their famous Soup burger available as vegan or regular.! I don’t eat dairy and to have a real tasting “cheeseburger” made with vegan gruyere cheese was wonderful. Service was great as always and it’s a very energetic place, not for quiet dining

    Enjoyed the food but that’s where the enjoyment ended. Service was so terrible that it actually ruined the entire meal. Waiters had an attitude and one kept leaning over my constantly to serve another table, plus bumping into me as I was eating without even apologizing. Another example how a restaurant crams way too many tables and unfortunately we had the worst one - avoid the back table near the host podium. Awful and will not be back. There a ton of great restaurants in nyc with much better service

    I love the Little Prince. I have been here a number of times with friends and family, and find the combination of excellent food and great service to be a stellar combination especially in Soho, where you can easily get duped into going somewhere highly overpriced with underwhelming food. However, I came here to celebrate Christmas dinner with my girlfriend and we had a surprisingly bad experience. We showed up about 5 minutes ahead of our 8pm reservation, and were not seated until 8:30. Granted, a 30 minute delay is not the end of the world; however, the host was unsympathetic, which was surprising considering the small, intimate space does not exactly accommodate people standing to wait. After waiting for about 20 minutes, I asked to see the wine list so we could at least have a drink while we waited, and the host told us absolutely - but did not return until our table was available 10 minutes later. My frustration was compounded when at about 9pm the wait staff emerged from the kitchen with a birthday cake, and the lights were turned off in favor of strobe and disco lights. What was a very nice gesture for a special birthday guest turned into a painful light show for me and my date, as the lights were never turned back to normal we were in the unenviable position of being directly in the middle of the dining room - so the strobe lights were pointed directly in our faces. At the end of the meal, we made a comment to the wait staff, who admitted that they saw our pained faces during our meal, which only made me more upset. How did they not take the proactive effort to simply pivot or rearrange the strobe lights? I think the Little Prince is great, but this experience really makes me rethink going in the future.
