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.

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.

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.

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!

First time to visit and really enjoyed the food and funky ambiance. I had the rack of lamb - perfectly cooked and seasoned with a tremendous gratin potato side serving. My wife had the cassoulet and it was deep and rich and very true to the dish as tasted on our trips to Paris. Really excellent. We told them we needed to be out by a certain time to catch a show at the Apollo Theatre and they handled the timing beautifully. Not many wines on the list that I was familiar with but the hostess / server / manager was very helpful and the suggested wine was very nice. Would definitely good again.

Expect to wait an extra 30-45 min on top of your reservation during peak hours (6:30 - 9). Host will tell you it is less than 10 min but ends up being longer.

It's fine but should manage expectations a little better.

We came here for their Thanksgiving dinner and we had really good food. It was a prix-fixe 4-course menu, with an absolutely delicious white truffle pumpkin soup to start with. Also the cocktails were well done and the staff was friendly.

The entrance to the restaurant was a little strange, when I stepped in I was met by a large hanging curtain that had to be moved out of the way to enter. I was a little thrown off at the appearance of the venue because I looked at a video review from a local news reporter which appears to have been done in the daytime and the restaurant looked very different. It was extremely noisy as we entered and we had to walk past the bar to get to the dining area. Once seated it did not take long for our waiter to appear. He was nice but it must be very new because he knew very little about the menu and later he disappeared for long periods of time. Everyone at the table enjoyed their food. We would recommend the Seafood Pasta and the Mushroom Rissoto with Shrimp.
