Not as special as it once was. Food is just okay, somewhat overpriced, and service leaves a lot to be desired. I hope this former gem can shine again.
Maison Harlem is my favorite Harlem restaurant, with consistently good food and lovely atmosphere.
Ore dinner cocktails during Happy Hour - Bar area was large enough and the service wonderful! Then was seated with our 5 guests, to a great comfy table where we shared some delicious apps and a great meal & wine:) Service again was great! Cant wait to go back!!
Great gem in Harlem that has a unique menu and great service. We love it. Appetizers are all very good. Lamb, sausages, and many other entrees are excellent.
Food quality and taste was authentically French.Tne fried oysters, garden salad and mussels were excellent. My husband had the Duck Magret which he felt was a little overcooked but wonderful taste. We will be back.
I went for brunch. I thought my food was just ok nothing out of this world. This is my second time there and I just felt underwhelmed, I was expecting better food. The ambiance is really nice tho, there decor really makes the place fun to be in.
Great spot for brunch, and probably everything else. Cute bar area. Kinda tight spacing so it’s tricky with groups but doable. Will definitely be back.
Love the vibes from this place, from the ambiance to the music. I went for brunch and it was great! Food is standard brunch food. Staff is attentive and bartender is super friendly :)
Salade frisée was yummy but $16 for a lot of leaves, an egg and a sprinkling of bacon is pretty costly!
Valentine’s Day. The food is great but we had to wait 30 minutes after our reservation and there wasn’t much space to move around in the restaurant.
This is one our places to eat. The owner has pioneered on Harlem’s West Side. I adore this French Bistro that has a lot of Masculine Flair and Food that is so very delicious! My favorites: coq Au vin, mushroom risotto. The fries. Are ridiculously good! The service is always amazing and friendly. And the wine choices are so good. There is also a great choice for non alcoholic drinks too. Mint, Lime and club soda! A non alcoholic mojito. Yummy!!!! So if you are in the neighborhood go to Maison Harlem and go across the street to their wine store Harlem Bottle (hrlmbtl)
I love the slightly worn atmosphere. Very cozy feel. I had delicious mussels with fries and a nice Chardonnay. Great neighborhood place. Lovely bar!
We're regulars. Good food, wonderful service, and cheerful and fun ambiance.
Very nice spot in harlem. Diverse customer base. Fench bistro carib style.
Maison Harlem is a perennial favorite of all local Harlemites but it is also a destination spot. Great vibe, wonderful food, gracious service - its what a French bistro should be.
We had a weird situation with the chef not coming in (brunch on Sunday) and had to wait for our food and when it came, it was cold. It was clear that this isn’t the normal operations so we were flexible, especially after the manager came by and dealt with the issue. He was fantastic!
Food was excellent and service was superb. Would highly recommend.
Our meal was “fantastique!” From our terrific cocktails (the drink menu is creative and we tried two excellent cocktails), to the escargot and fried oysters, to grilled salmon, couscous royale (with lamb and chicken), to the MOST delicious coq au vin, it was a very yummy meal in a lovely atmosphere. The waitress was delightful and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised by the high quality and care in preparation. Can’t wait to go back! Two thumbs way up.
Great place. Great ambiance. Food was tasty. Service was iffy. Great overall vibe.
Sunday brunch was tres bien! On a bitterly cold morning we exited the subway at 125th Street & jogged 2 short blocks to charming Maison Harlem. Warm atmosphere, friendly waiter & delicious Eggs Nordique in a unique & cozy bistro. The coffee was superb as well. Merci!
My fourth visit to the restaurant, my brunch not great, my friend's was. Able to linger and chat as restaurant wasn't too busy early for Sun brunch, was filling up when we left at 12:30 (arrived at 10am). Server was quite pleasant and fun.
A special place, consistently very good to great
The waiters were personable and made sure we had a great experience. The food was delicious and there were many appealing options. The atmosphere was lively and everyone seemed to be happy to be there.
this is a great neighborhood place, with a bistrot like menu and ambience, but a harlem flavor...
our reservation was for 11:30 am and the restaurant hours were 11 am opening, upon our arrival around 11:15, the front door was locked and it was freezing outside, one of the employee informed us that they were waiting for the kitchen crew because they were opened really late last night (new year's eve). He said come back at 11:45, so we sat in our car and waited. We were let in around 11:35 because more people were showing up, the service was super slow and our foods were cold.
Thank you so much for making our New Years Eve celebration so special. The service, ambiance and food were all amazing.
Great food and service. Love the atmosphere!! Vibrant, social and people are amazing.
Friendly good service, delicious food and a free glass of sparkling wine!
We are regulars here, and have never ever been disappointed! The food is varied and excellent, the wine list commercial and the staff 1st class - led by the wonderful Jean-Baptiste in the restaurant and the amazing Camille behind the bar. I never want to rave about this place too much in case I can't get a table any more, but suffice to say this really is a neighborhood gem!
Maison Harlem is a great neighborhood spot. I feel the service can be a little faster but it’s nothing to complain about.
Loved it! I recently moved the the area and have a hit list of new places to check out, Maison Harlem being on this list of course. Went on a Friday night with my mom and we both really enjoyed everything from the atmosphere to the food and the staff.
Always fantastic! Food, service, ambiance. Friendly place in the neighborhood that has stood the test of time. Consistently great.
This restaurant is fabulous in all respects. Great atmosphere and dining. Highly recommend.
We had fun!
Good service crowded seating
My friends and I all very much enjoyed our brunch at Maison Harlem!
I have been going to MH since it opened and the superior quality of the food has been consistent. It’s also nice for a customer to be welcomed back and acknowledged by the waitstaff and bartender. This is my favorite downtown bistro uptown!
Maison Harlem is a wonderful neighborhood gem that I’m thrilled to call my own.
I love this place. Everything is always great. Food, drink, all of it. Awesome.
The food was good and the wait staff and host were wonderful. The whole meal was a delightful experience. As someone who has reason to be in Harlem it's a great neighborhood restaurant.
Love the atmosphere and the food. Service is excellent and staff is friendly. Skirt steak, mussels, pork chops and pasta were all very good! Everyone in party enjoyed their food.
