The quaintest spot in Harlem for a cozy breakfast with friends. The staff are darlings and the food is super yummy! Try the burrata, not an obvious choice but always spectacular.

Terrific meal. Good ingredients, expertly prepared. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Basically the ideal neighborhood French joint. I highly recommend.

Very cool space. Tables are small and somewhat close to each other. Had option to sit outdoors with heat lamps on indoors. We chose indoors. Service was very good and we were not rushed. Live jazz music added to the experience. Food was very good and the portions were very good sized...glad we did not over order as we were attending a concert and not going to be able to take home leftovers :)
Will most certainly return to hang at the bar, have dinner, chill to the jazz music and not have to leave to go to a concert.

The food is really good; the service is subpar. Coffee was cold, waited a long time for one drink (not even a cocktail--I just asked for liquor in a glass). They really don't check on you to make sure everything is fine. I was always flagging them down. But it's cute, the food is good, and the location is ideal. This was my second time eating here and--unless I'm invited by someone else--it will be my last.

I had the best time here as a visitor. I got the omelette dish and it was not up to par with taste. However, because of the the aesthetic, laid-back environment and personable staff (Lance is a delight) I enjoyed every minute I spent here.

Great first night out, in town on vacation. The moules mariniere et frite were among the best we’ve ever had. Lots of plump, tender mussels and a rich, creamy broth. We wanted more bread to keep soaking up the broth, but held off so we’d have room for cassoulet, which also did not disappoint. Our server was outgoing and friendly, and was there when we needed him, but left us alone enough in between. Everything was delicious and well-paced. Sat outside in the parklet, but service didn’t suffer. Nicely done.

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.

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.

This dining experience was amazing except for the fact that the server was stretched too thin and it took 40 minutes to get our check once we’d asked for it! Will obviously come back again as that was a day specific thing.
