Located in the trendy East Village neighborhood of Manhattan, PMF, or Pardon My French, is a contemporary dining experience that updates the classic French bistro experience along with tapas and small plates inspired by the cuisines of the Mediterranean. PMF also has a full bar where its mixologist whips up craft cocktails with house infusions.

Small plates at PMF include eggplant caviar, a slow-braised pork belly served with a carrot mousse and a mushroom succotash and homemade burrata with basil and confit tomatoes. Main courses run the gamut from a classic oxtail slow-braised in red wine sauce or the traditional moules frites with mussels and triple smoked bacon in a wild mushrooms sauce.

One of my favorite spots in Manhattan for either food or drinks!! Has an incredible menu with truly great food, as well as a hip bar with a trendy clientele.

All great dishes, but the bone marrow stood out the most for us.

Thinking my title says it all. From the moment you walk in you know it's going to be great. Loved loved this place and will be back. Brunch is VERY good and very reasonable. I had Benedict Florentine. Instead of HUGE muffins my eggs and spinach were served on smaller muffins. So I was able to enjoy this dish as it was a perfect amount. My friend had the french toast - omg. Amazing. My other friend had the croque madame - rich and DELICIOUS. Just wonderful and the "pitcher" of mimosas was actually really good. Alot of bubbly in there - just perfect overall. Run - don't walk here.

Had dinner here Tuesday night. Hands down the best meal I had among a week of excellent meals in NYC. Where PMF really excels is service. Our waiter was extremely attentive and polite. There are few restaurants in NYC that I will go to more than once because there are so many others to try, but I will definitely be dining here again.

The food was delicious and the patio was very cozy. The croque madame was to die for!!! The only sad part was that the service was suuuuuuper slow!! it was an unlimited drink brunch but they had too much orange juice and our food got there before we could even get a second round of drinks, that part was a bit disappointing but we still had a good time. Maybe they could use some more staff on busy days like brunch time,

The title says it all. This review is for brunch. The food was great but the service was nonexistent. Granted it got really busy but it looked like the waiters had their heads chopped off. Our waiter came and took our order but then disappeared. Had to ask the host for refills on drinks. Asked for more milk from the waiter but he never came back. And when we got the check it was billed at a higher price. I would give this place another try but would come for the small plates/dinner. And if the service is still lacking, I will not come back no matter how good the food is.

Just had another great night @ PMF! Excellent ambiance, service & selection. We were thrilled with dinner choices- both duck & fish with salad app were wonderful. Bar and wait staff helped make evening feel special. Merci!
