Waiters seemed a little frazzled that evening, but maybe due to short staff? It’s ok because the service is otherwise always good and the food and ambiance is always excellent!!! It’s a neighborhood favorite that I frequent alot.

A wonderful little French gem in Harlem. There is dining inside and out. Food is wonderful and good selection of drinks. They don't rush you so it feels like an authentic French dining experience. Enjoy!

The decor and ambiance were great, but sadly the service was spotty. I have higher hopes for a second visit. The drinks were stiff which is great.

We ate outside. The service was a little slow because we wanted to sit in a closed section of the outdoor dining and there was really only 1 waiter - so likely our fault. My son had a meltdown and we needed to take the food to go but they were v helpful and speedy at that point. The food was delicious! Would definitely go back for a ‘grown up’ meal w/o kids.

Entrees took 90 min to arrive. Drink service was also incredibly slow. Fish was overcooked, crab cake kinda sucked. The concept is good but they need to check on people more than every 30-45 min and they need new leadership in the kitchen.

Our first time to visit this restaurant and we immediately felt welcomed. I felt transported back to Paris. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I think this is going to be a regular place for us. We’re mew in the neighborhood and thrilled to find such a marvelous place.

I went here with two friends and we had a fantastic time. The food was outstanding and the menu was broad enough that everyone could find something. Our waiter was attentive and the seating was done in a way that I felt that social distancing regulations were kept. We will be returning again soon.

I’ve came here once before and it was nothing like my first experience. We waited an hour and a half for our food AFTER the appetizer came out. The couple sitting next to us came an hour after us and was given appetizers, and their entrees before us and we ordered the same thing. When the food arrived, all of our plates came with French fries despite none of us ordering French fries. When the waiter came over he said they had run out of potatoes. So I was unable to get mashed potatoes and my friend was unable to get potatoes gratin. I was even more upset because the couple next to us had the same exact meal with mashed potatoes so they technically got our meal first. I don’t understand why the waiter did not inform us of them running out my mashed potatoes and instead filled our plates with French fries that none of us ordered. The waiter then offered us free drinks and allowed me to choose another meal. I chose the seafood pasta which took another 45 minutes. I had to watch my friends eat their food while I sat at the table waiting. The pasta did not have a pleasant taste at all and the noodles were overcooked. I did not finish the meal at all. I was extremely disappointed with my experience because the first experience was very different. The food was lacking as well as the service.

We have been to this restaurant before and found it excellent - food, service, ambiance. Our experience on Feb 14 was the exact opposite. The service in particular was terrible, as they seemed to have no experienced staff working on Valentine's Day. What staff they did have was slow and often rude. The cocktails, escargot and frisee salad were good, but the main courses were not - mussels were bland, steak was overcooked and cold, couscous dish was tasteless and almost inedible. No one came by to see how everything was. No specials and the French restaurant ran out of French bread at 7:45. Did not stay for dessert.

The servers were pleasant when they were around, but were unavailable for much of the time. I waited 20 minutes to order drinks. The heat went out due to a fuse being tripped on more than one occasion. The wait staff did not notice the heat having been turned off even though it was quite cold (being outside at night). It must happen frequently, but they did not monitor for it. The child at a table diagonal to mine was playing a video at a high volume, but the waitstaff did not approach them to lower the volume.
