    Great place. The music was awesome courtesy of a live Reggae band, The Brooklyners. The album cover menus are a great touch. Food was delicious, both had burgers; lamb and beef. Word to the wise chocolate lava cake was the bomb, but portion should be bigger. Servers are attentive and professional. Totally unpretentious French restaurant in Harlem. Will definitely be going back!

    It’s such a wonderful restaurant. Service is always pleasant but like everyone else, they’d benefit from more bodies to help out. Moules are délicieux.

    The food was a great, so was the service and the ambience is wonderful. When we first entered the restaurant we were seated next to an audio speaker. And it was pretty loud. So we asked if we could be seated somewhere else. And the maître d’ found a great spot. We had a good time.

    Service was extremely slow and staff kept forgetting requests (like water, which a few tables agreed with us), but the food made up for the lacking service. And the location was convenient

    I really enjoy this restaurant and took my adult stepdaughter there for brunch Sunday. It was very busy but they did seat us promptly at our reservation time and brought our wine. But given we waited over an hour for our food!! Maybe the kitchen is too small to deal with the restaurant capacity with all the indoor and outdoor options but it was pretty crazy!!

    Our first time here and it was excellent in every way. The food in particular was outstanding. We had the snapper special, dorado, steak and lamb burger, all cooked to perfection and very flavorful. The endive salad was the best and the calamari was very tasty. Service was prompt and on point. Already booked for another visit.

    This lovely French restaurant has become a guitar group’s haunt. This unadvertised music that was not posted on the website or at all obvious by any post on entry had Loud pulsing bass that literally caused one of our party nausea. The food is Amazing!!! Why pollute it???? Unless we receive confirmation that this will Never happen again, our group of patrons will never return. We can go to La Sirene or Bistro les Amis as well many other French dining options. This is simply very, very sad.. Adieu.

    The kale salad and French fries were very good. The other parts of our meal were either excessively complicated with flavors that did not work together or dishes that were not tasty enough to finish. Disappointing overall.

    Came for lunch and ordered simple dishes (Salad Nicoise, Croque Monsier, Burgers, Fries) and all of it was good. We appreciated the ambiance, the sunlight streaming in, the windows the opened to the street, the bar upfront, the cozy, French-themed decor. The waiter was friendly, attentive and masked. The music was at times a bit too loud and hard-core (rap), this was the only detraction.

    We’ve dined at MH at least 30 times over the past several years, and have had consistently great meals every time. The place has a fun, loose, party vibe but the kitchen turns out some seriously well-crafted and excellent food. Fun bar area as well. Our fave in Harlem and one of our favorites in all of NYC. Keep up the great work!

    Highly recommend! The food was very good, the service was excellent. Before we chose our wine the waiter offered a taste of each. They recommended dishes when we were choosing. I had the lamb burger and it was delicious. The french fries were perfect. Others had the muscles and the chicken was a wow. I would definitely go back.

    We loved this place and will be back. The pommes frites and the endive Roquefort salad were terrific and the spicy Marguerite and the Chablis very good as well. The mushroom risotto was good, but a bit bland. Delightful service, but as everywhere now, a bit short staffed. Really liked the whole feel and ambience. Look forward to having moules frites next time.
