Ambiance was great as we were next to a fireplace on a chilly evening. Food and service were top noch. We were still talking about the dining experience a couple days after we had dinner there. A very memorable experience.

What a treasure we found! We had a group of 10 booked that day on a 3-day weekend. They accommodated us and the food was great! Those who got cesar salads said they were the best they ever had. Clam chowder is very thin but good, more like a broth. Plouf mussels were the best I've ever eaten. We came hungry and they are a little stingy on bread, giving one baguette sliced maybe 6 inches long at a time. Overall, delicious food!

The food was great we had the Plouf mussels and beef tartar (ask for the Baguette on the side) for main courses we had the butter fish and ribeye steak very good. Our favorites was definitely the mussels, and for dessert we had sorbet and creme brûlée.

We came for the restaurant week deal, but I woudln't go back and pay full price. The food was good, but overpriced. If you go, get the coq au vin and muscles but anything else isn't worth the large price tag. The restaurant was surprisingly empty for a Friday night but maybe it was just an off night. A little overpriced (they charged $2 for a small amount of table bread.... what?!), but felt authentic.

We went for Restaurant Week. They offered two different entrees: ahi tuna or rack of lamb. Both were excellent. Staff very attentive.

I liked it so much, thus was my second time there within days.

I definitely would recommend it.

My wife and I shared the following

- Clam chowder (very good...not creamy and loaded with fresh clams!)
- Beet salad (the best!)
- Mussels in a light cream sauce (good, but not hot)
- House cured salmon gravlax with dill. (OK, but not an entree)

That being said, the wait service was overwhelmed with a Friday lunch crowd, so water service was non-existent and the waitress did not circle back to check on us.

We’ve been to Plouf about 6-8 times over the past 10 years., but this has been the unfortunate poorest the food and service has been. It may be time for Plouf to hang it up.

Mussels!
Belgian specialties in many different varieties served in piping hot cauldrons of deliciousness.
Incredible crab cakes starter, steak tartare
The only disappoint was the garlic bread.

Great location on small, charming Belden St. off hectic Union Sq. Staff nice. Mussels just weren’t good— way too much raw garlic, many not open. Brussels sprout hash tough and flavorless. Coming in from the drizzly weather we nearly wiped on the floor that was either greasy or soapy. Place does not look clean.

Classic French bistro style, replete with tile floor and rickety chairs. Food and service excellent and they leave you alone (good) You can linger.

It was Christmas Day. The restaurant was very busy and crowded. They were missing a server but they tried hard. Delicious liver pate and shrimp dish.

Wonderful food. Space inside is a bit of a tight squeeze so sitting outside might be better if you need more room.
