Papillon Bistro and Bar Ratings and Reviews
Tremendously disappointing. I have seen this place hoping all work-week long and always wanting to try it when it was less busy, so went in for Sunday brunch. Food was served cold and waitress did not seem to be able to keep up with 5 tables of 2 - 3 apiece. A little business advice: Don't let young adults run your business without a little senior over-sight. Exorbitant price for wine-by-the-glass. Would not recommend going in for anything other than a beer after work - good selection there.
THERE WEB SITE IS VERY MISLEADING, THE PICTURE SHOWS A BEAUTY FULL FRONT PATIO WITH BUSHES AND NICE TABLES BUT ITS THE ITALIAN RESTAURANT NEXT DOOR, THEY MAKE IT LOOK LIKE ITS THEM BUT ITS NOT, THE RESTAURANT IS A DUMP, I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE !!!!!
From the outside everything looks attractive. Inside the decor is nice, but there is a musty smell and everything looks dirty and feels sticky. We were seated in a dark corner with only 2 other people in this very large restaurant. That should of been a hint to leave, but there are not many other places near where we were staying to eat. Food was ok, but I would likely not go back unless I could get a sidewalk table.
The place, with original Soviet times emigré Russian lady pianist, mustachioed Italian with the welcoming manners of a 1910s cavalry officer and entertaining operatic duets, is quite fun and so are the nubile young ladies and cosmopolitan men about town. The menu, with overcooked rice and only a limited choice, is as (un)exciting as the one served at the United Nations' delegates lounge or at an English Public School, but the ambience is far better. The dining area could use a spot of fresh paint, but is comfortable and not exceedingly noisy, and the wine list (this being New York) is not too outrageously prices. Overall, an amusing place. Service is generally included. Expect a total bill of approximately $ 350 for four with 2 bottles of good Argentinian wine.
awful. won't go back anytime soon. soon as we walked in the smell of disinfectant hit us like a sledgehammer and it never dissipated. After being seated it took 15 minutes before we got any water. 20 minutes after that our food arrived. For a restaurant that caters to a lunchtime business crowd the entire experience was unacceptable
