French
Hailing from France, Brand Essence owners Aymeric Clemente and Remi Laba teamed up in February 2008 to create a restaurant that is wholly French Mediterranean in atmosphere and cuisine. The ambiance is reminiscent of a bustling Parisian bistro, with classic decor and architecture paired with chic and bold artwork., lively music, and a relaxed yet sexy vibe, making you feel as if you've escaped to Europe if only for a day.

We want to commend the new GM, Allan Basaran, who has done an amazing job updating the menu. The food was great and service even better. Special compliments to our server Andrea who consistently made our experience special. We will be back soon.

If you're looking to go somewhere for dinner that's lively and fun, this is the place to go. While it isn't the cheapest, the portions are a decent size, the food is excellent and it's entertaining. This isnt a place I'd frequent if you're looking for top notch service, and a quiet turn down dinner. It's fast paced, loud, and the servers seem to enjoy the music as much as the patrons do so don't expect them to hover over your table. It's a great place to go as a group, or with friends not a dinner date as its got a club feel to it.

Not worth the price. I got the Veal filet medium-rare. Over-cooked.
Food portions were very very very small.
Recommend their truffle pizza.

Terrible service, the waiter refused to bring more bread, he said we could only have one serving of bread per table. The waiter brought the appetizers tighter with the main dishes, and when we told him we wanted to have the appetizers first, he just put the main courses in the table next to ours.

Il volume della musica non permette di parlare a tavola: non è una discoteca è un ristorante. Durante la cena un quadro si è staccato dalla parete e mi è CADUTO IN TESTA!!! Il personale è arrivato subito e per scusarsi ha offerto il vino, ma abbiamo dovuto pagare la cena. Un mio amico avvocato stamattina mi ha detto che avrei dovuto sporgere querela. Comunque non torneremo mai più.

Restaurant is French in name only. What a joke. The champagnes are Moet and Veuve for over $100 a bottle each, really? Has the sommelier never tried the thousands of champagnes in Rheims and Epernay? The list continues: dirty menus, table about to fall over, waiter who spends all his time chatting up his GF at the bar, clueless hostess who gives out wrong menus, AC turned on when is 50 degrees outside, flat bread truffle pizza missing any sighting or remote flavor of truffles. No baguettes or other French bread? Both glasses is wine ordered took 10 minutes to bring—first one missed the appetizer even though ordered together, the second missed the main course although ordered midway through. Oh, did I mention no other tables occupied while we were there? When I asked how long to pour a glass of wine, he made a comment that the had to find the grapes, crush them, etc etc not funny from a bad waiter giving bad service. In the end food was just ok for what we’re very steep prices. How to win at this game? Don’t play! Too many other great French restaurants in New York.

Upon arriving, we we early for our 6:30 reservation. The staff would not let us in, even at the bar, until they officially opened for the evening. Kind of odd! Other then that being a little off putting, we had a lovely meal and the wait-staff was truly accommodating. The scallop raviolis are absolutely superb. Keep in mind, a little on the pricey side. Side note, the hostess could use some people skills lessons.

I would definitely recommend to a friend, if they could afford it. The food was very good, the waiter was very nice to us even tho we weren't the hip young people I thought would be there. Went on a Tuesday and found bottles of very good wine were available for 1/2 price. My only criticism is that the price was high, shared appetizer and desert and the bill was still over $200. So good for a special occasion, for a business dinner, or if someone else is paying.

I expected delicious tasty food from this French restaurant, but the only tasty item was the complimentary baguette!

We ordered the beets salald, gnocchi, mushroom pizza, smoked salmon pizza, and Smoker club - nothing wowed us.

The service, though, was amazing! We really enjoyed communicating with our server, Lucy, who is pretty and congenial. The hostess was welcoming, and the other staff were efficient and accomodating (brought crushed red peppers for the pizza even though it’s not readily available).

I don’t recommend Bagatelle for the food, but the service and ambience on a Friday early afternoon is nice.

Horrible horrible service. We had to wait over half an hour for our table even though we had a reservation... very rude hostess. Food was good, but not very small amount for the price. I think next time I’d rather eat somewhere else and then just go there for the drinks/dancing.

The food was very good. You can clearly taste all the fresh ingredients. The service was a great. The things that made our experience not that fantastic was the dirty bathrooms that had trash over the floors (if though the restaurant just opened) and the cold temperature of the room. We went on a Sunday night and we arrived early at 7:15 pm. We were told the restaurant didn’t open for another 15 mins. We saw some employees setting up while other employees were drinking at the bar. This did not make for a great first impression. Overall food was great.

I tried to give this place a second chance and the same problem happened - they brought out our main course before the appetizers, put it in the kitchen under the heat lamp, brought out the apps and then brought the food back out. By this time the steak was over cooked, gnocchi was soggy and not enjoyable. Such a shame because the restaurant itself is so fun to be at but the food is not done well.

It was restaurant week and I was searching the restaurant around my work! I was late and places already was taken for Friday! So I found this restaurant and wasn't not sure about mixed reviews. But decided to try! And I was not disappointed!
The food was delicious. I ordered the salmon and it was one of the best salmon I eat! Our waiter Andrea was excellent and the food authentic. We came 6.30 And was quiet, but after 7p.m. There was a lot of people !
We really enjoyed!

Visited on our weekend girls trip to NYC. Atmosphere was great! Only two complaints were with the entree and service. My friend and I both ordered the Truffle Oil Gnocchi. It was so pungent with the truffle that we could only take a few bites of it. No one asked if we like our meal throughout the entire dinner. Which leads to the service side of it. We were one of the first tables in there that night so they weren't overly busy yet but the server still wasn't around much. Never asked how our food (appetizer or entree was) and we would have spent more on wine but we weren't asked except once if we wanted a refill.

Bagatelle NY was amazing.
Fantastic front-of-house and waiter who looked after us all night.
Their signature gnocchi was perfect. Sorry... Bagatelle London... it was better than yours and yours was amazing.
Tomahawk steak for three was ample and delightful as was the tuna tartare.
Faultless. A perfect evening.

Ours was a 21st birthday celebration with 7:30 reservation on a Wednesday evening. We were open to and prepared for either a quiet evening or a lively one. This evening was quiet which made conversation easy. The food was delicious and the music was perfect. Our server, Andrea, made the evening special for all. Thank you!
