"We are two food and wine loving French New Yorkers who are bringing an exciting restaurant to Harlem, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the borough."
The food was so bland. Had to load it up with salt and hot sauce to get it down.
Great food. Great ambiance. Staff was amazing!
This is such a gem. The food is quite traditional and absolutely delicious. It has a great vibe, a very diverse clientele and just feels like so much fun
The food here is very good and the location is great for nearby Harlem happenings. It’s really loud and tightly packed where makes enjoying a meal a bit challenging.
Great vibe, good food, friendly waiters. They turned up the music so got a little loud but it was worth it. Will return!
Good general rustic French food. Portions are generous.
Seating is tight and cosy. Nice fun environment
Fantastic food and the musicians who played were a wonderful addition to our dining experience.
The food was good. The service was friendly but took a while
Felt like home in Paris, everyone spoke French
I’ll be back
Very slow and unresponsive service for a very expensive meal. Had to call the waitress over several times. Probably won't go back.
Best place in the region. Wonderful staff, excellent food, the best bar scene in the city
I always enjoy myself here!! Food, service and cocktails are ALWAYS ON POINT!! BB
A little pricey, but a nice place to go for a special occasion. The bar scene there appears to be hopping.
great music , attentive service, Mahi mahi and mashed potatoes were filling and delicious. nicely poured cocktails. just felt a little cramped even by NY standards.
Awesome service and great wine suggestion from our server. Thank you.
The only negative was that neither of the two French burgundies that we ordered were available, so a bottle was purchased at a liquor store across St. Nicholas and we had no say in the choice.
Leo our waitress was terrific. Food was delicious.
Perfect Latin Jazz brunch
Incredible food - ambiance - highly recommend! Would definitely go back!
Had a fantastic dinner catching up with a friend! We both shared a drink, appetizer and an entree. I do wish our waiter would have been a little more attentive, but other than that everything was great! I would go back and definitely recommend Maison Harlem!
This is the best bar in the area, period. Diverse, lifely, excellent music, good cocktails, excellent food, outstanding staff.
The service was AWFUL. In fact, it is quite apparent that customer service is not a priority. Shortly after the food arrived, we asked for a second round of drinks that never came although the waitress passed our table numerous times. When we reminded her about the drinks and told her that we were disappointed in the service, the waitress shrugged her shoulder and was quite indifferent. We asked for the manager who was equally as dismissive. When we told him that reviews cite poor service, he told us that he doesn’t pay attention to reviews as they are wrong. Given our experience today, the reviews are on point. While the food is tasty, there are other restaurants in Harlem with delicious food and good customer service. Don’t trouble yourself with Maison Harlem. Bad service undermines the dining experience.
Lovely place for brunch!
Excellent food, friendly service, great vibe. Just a bit pricey, is my only complaint.
The restaurant was not open for the time we booked our breakfast despite a confirmation via your app - ridiculous
I love this little restaurant--both the bar and the restaurant in the back. A wonderful group of people. Friendly warm and the food is modest, standard French but good. I just had merguez and frites and rose and enjoyed it. Prices too are moderate.
The staff couldn't have been friendlier and were accommodating when I wanted another table.
The food here is great and we all enjoyed our meals.
I expected a more upscale ambiance given the extensive french cuisine but I was not disappointed by the food or the service. All of the patrons whether at the bar or dining at their tables looked happy to be there. I wished I lived in the neighborhood so I could easier frequent this restaurant.
We enjoyed the shrimp cocktail, salmon with lemon caper over ratatouille and over spinach, and a hamburger. Shoe string fries were really good. Friendly service and waiter was kind about my attempts at speaking French based on 30+ years ago high school French classes.
Great restaurant in unexpected part of the town. I keep coming here every time I'm in town.
Wonderful spot for a relaxed weekend lunch. Good vibes and good food.
Awesomeness all around!
The food was so.......... delicious. Date night was pleasant with the french accent service. 🥰
As you are walking up to this restaurant you might think you are at the wrong address because it lols like just a Bar. As you step in you see the dining are in the back and a Hostess was right there. I was meeting someone for lunch and they sat me at a lovely table. It wasn’t very crowded and the server immediately gave me the menu.
When my friend came we ordered a delicious Vodka cocktail. Then we ordered. Nabou our server was extremely pleasant. The Small Mussels Mariniere was delicious and had a wonderful delicate onion taste. The Absolut Mandrin cocktail was quite delicious with the mussels.
My friend ordered Salmon but they brought her smoked salmon instead of the cooked salmon and they brought her the salmon she asked for in just a few minutes. It was absolutely delicious. Salmon on a bed of the most delicious ragatoutti I have ever tasted.
My Couscous Royale which is their specialty was spectacular. Very tasteful and just the right amount of spices. It was as I enjoy in Morocco.
It seemed that Nabou was working the entire lunch time but was always seeing that everything was ok.
No one rushed you for the table and I, well we both enjoyed our fabulous lunch.
The only problem I had with this restaurant was the cleanliness of the Bathroom. The bathroom was as clean as I thought a restaurant should be and as I said it wasn’t that crowded but I’m sure that was the only bathroom even for the Bar patrons. Maybe there could be two or just clean it more often. I do say it’s the people who dirty a place. I’m sure the paper on the floor was not thrown there by the workers.
Since that was my only problem I did see some other wonderful things on the menu that I would love to try hoping they clean up the bathroom.
Service was a little slow but the food was good and the people were friendly .
Great outdoor dinner !
It was a very slow night and our waiter never paid attention to us. He kept forgetting to bring our drinks but did remember to bring the check more than once when we didn’t ask. The beer lines have not been cleaned in a while as we all had different beers and they all tasted horrible.
The bar area was very crowded but seems it’s due to the happy hour prices.
The food was great and the people where nice
The food all had great flavor, but everyone's entree was cold. We sent two of them back and they came out cold again! We didn't complain the second time. Maison Harlem was nice enough to take 10% off the bill. Drinks were good, the atmosphere was fun. But be advised, it is very loud in here. So if you are looking for something intimate I'd suggest another restaurant. Overall, I'd recommend it to someone in the area but definitely wouldn't make a special trip.
Loved this restaurant! Food, service and ambiance combination was fabulous. We were a table of four and every dish was spectacular. The waiter was especially wonderful with recommendations and explanations of sauces, etc. Chef very willing to make substitutions. The only problem is parking so recommend taking an Uber.
