The food was delicious, some of the best French food in Harlem. The restaurant had a fun and cozy vibe, and the staff were really friendly, I would definitely come back. The only disappointment was the end of the meal when I went to the bathrooms, they looked like they hadn't been cleaned all week.

This was our second visit to Maison Harlem. We loved everything about our first visit. In fact, we loved the duck confit so much, we ordered it again. This time, it was not nearly as enjoyable. It was dry and overcooked. I was very disappointed. When we mentioned this to our waiter at the end of the meal, he brought us a delicious complimentary chocolate mousse. It didn't make me forget about the duck confit, but it was a nice way to end our meal. For an appetizer, we enjoyed the deep fried oysters very much. Our mushroom and seafood risotto entree was also very enjoyable.

I had eaten there before but usually with one other person. They were very accommodating when we needed to add others to our party at the last minute.
The staff was friendly and the food hit the spot. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered.
Merci beaucoup, Maison!!

The fois gras appetizer was disappointing and we sent it back. It was not fois gras but some sort of fois gras cake. The Chilean sea bass in mustard sauce as the main course was very tasty and was a good size portion. I would definitely go again if in the neighborhood.

The food is good, a nice balance between traditional French dishes but with north African touches. The wine list is decent but not outstanding. The service was friendly and efficient for the most part. On very hot days it is a little uncomfortable because the doors to the patio area let in all the hot air. When the restaurant is full it is quite noisy. The mussels are excellent.

Went there for brunch. The food was meh. I had french toast with home fries, which were just diced potatoes, bacon and a fruit salad. The fruit salad was the best part. The french toast was slightly warm and bland. The bacon was burnt and the potatoes were ok. The server was really nice and the crowd was diverse and hip. Food was a disappointment.

You absolutely have to order their cheese platter! We ordered a selection of 3 cheeses but their portion was quite generous so we were quite full by the time the entrees had arrived. The risotto was amazing, too. I liked the music and the overall atmosphere as well. I will be back for sure.

My cousin was in town. And she asked me to find a place for us to go for dinner. Since she was staying at a hotel in Harlem I decided to look for a place in Harlem. I chose this place after reading the reviews and availability of greeting a reservation in short notice. The food was even better than what the reviewers said. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I will definitely go back again.

We went for French restaurant week. My only complaint about the restaurant is that the person who greeted/seated us was not particularly welcoming and didn't give us the restaurant week menu. Although the options on the special menu were very limited (we ordered all the options between the two of us), all the food was delicious. And our waitress was wonderful. Really friendly and efficient. We would go again.

My husband and I have been coming to Maison Harlem since it opened. WE know the previous owner, Sammy, as well as some of the staff who always greeted us in a friendly manner. This past experience was very disappointing. The person who seated us wouldn't crack a smile. We waited almost 20 minutes to get our drinks after we ordered. Food was good but very slow in coming though the place wasn't crowded. It seemed that there wasn't enough wait staff even for the few patrons there. Sad, as this used to be one of our favorite neighborhood haunts.
They really need to step it up!

We went to Maison Harlem while in NYC for my birthday. I love French and was looking for a place where we could laugh and get a bit carried away without feeling disruptive. For French food, I’d give it an eight-and-a-half. For fun ambiance and sevice, a ten. We had a large group, with one of us gluten-intolerant. The waiter clearly cared enough to walk her through the entire menu. If you’re looking for a quiet, romantic outing, it may vary by the day. If you’re looking for a place to hang out with friends, it’s a great choice!
