Our last night in NY, found this and figured we’d try it. We LOVED Maison Harlem!! All the staff were charming, the atmosphere was wonderful-rustic and warm- the live music was marvelous, the food and drinks were delicious. It made us feel like we were back in Europe.
The service is not fast so I wouldn’t recommend it for a quick bite before something else but if you have an evening to enjoy dining out, Maison Harlem is perfect.

We got seated on a great table. And while the kitchen was busy. The staff was very professional at accommodating.
Great place to come and enjoy. Will be back many times

Simply the best place. Freakin neighbor forces Maison to shut diwn music, which is crazy, we should form a pro-Maison movement!

The French pizza was delicious, crusty and flavorful. The duck confit was perfectly seasoned and mussels were a perfection. We wanted to take the sauce home. A palate pleasing evening. Un grand merci!

The food, staff and ambience was very nice. However, I found the wine to be too pricey at $16 a glass. Other than that, nice experience.

Excellent as usual. I had the a generous portion of the Daurade with asparagus and potatoes, and my husband tried the Merguez with French fries for the first time. No live music on that particular evening, but I often enjoy it when I pass by the restaurant leaving work. We ate outside in one their sheds, so safe and quiet, thank you.

Have been many times with good results, but on Labor Day the kitchen and service were exceptionally slow, though the restaurant wasn’t crowded. Our waiter did did his best to compensate (took appetizers off the bill) , but it still was a BAD EXPERIENCE!

Tonight was a lazy night . I myself am a chef which leaves me
Super picky at times but i didn’t feel like cooking dinner . This place i walk past on a daily but have never actually went inside . I am so happy i did . I tried shrimp cocktail for the first time and it was delicious. I ordered the grilled ny steak and it was delicious, that garlic butter was perfect !! The fries Perfect and the truffle Mac and cheese is to die for !! I don’t remember my servers name but he had a strong French accent . His service was exceptional!! So polite and kind and made sure my friend and i were accommodated!! I will definitely be back for more .

We have loved this place for years, but something has gone wrong recently and we hope they can figure it out. The past few times we have waited and waited… for everything. And when it arrives, it’s wrong. Apologies and excuses. A mess.

The food was good, the service friendly and excellent. We were seated outside as requested but subjected to a very loud group of people. Also a rat!
Came to visit . Very unsettling and not the fault of the restaurant.

If you're looking for a quiet place, check first to see if they'll have live music. As enjoyable as both the meal and music were, the room was just a little too loud for catching up with an old friend.

This could have been a great meal, but the waiter did not serve our food until we had waited over 45 minutes. When it came, it was obvious that the food was ready a long time previously and had sat under a heat lamp for too long. The duck was dry, the fish was dry, and only the stews (coq au vin and mussels) were still quite good. Everything would have been excellent if the waiter had brought us our food as soon as it was ready.

Food was amazing, ambience awesome and service great. Disappointed that they ran out of fois gras but we loved this place. No pretensions / who would have expected a down to earth/modern vibe French restaurant in Harlem. Great job - cannot wait to visit again!

We just stopped in for brunch, everything was fine. Bloodys were strong and tasty, dishes were better than average, coffee was good. The day was warm, so all the windows/doors were open, and the main room was comfortable.

It was a quick meal, so not much else to say. Service was efficient and polite.

One small thing: Open Table said there was no outdoor dining, but there was, there were two street sheds, only one of which was in use.
