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.

The hostess was one of the rudest persons we encounter in NY city. My friends and I were late for a reservation (the Uber took a really long time to show up and traffic was way slower than Google Maps indicated). When I asked the hostess to be put in the waiting list and told her that we would wait at the bar she extremely rudely said that I could do what I wanted but she didn't think she would have a table for us in the whole night, even though Open Table was showing spots available an hour and a half after and the place wasn't even full.
We decided to ignore her and got to the bar where the barman Giovanni was beyond amazing and took very good care of us. The food is good is too bad that the hostess was so terrible. The DJ was also very good. Bagatelle: please get rid of that girl... or feed her, she looks hungry.

They ran out of menu items, then tried to trade us up to the most expensive ones. Truffle butter is very good and Olive oil excellent, though they need a new baker as the baguette is sad. Veal was over-done. The highlight was when we went to order dessert and were told, ‘the kitchen closed - you can’t!’ They gave us no warning that it was ‘last call’ as Japanese restaurants do. And they didn’t seem to care and did nothing about it. Then they had the audacity to try to charge us for both of the dishes they were out of in addition to the two they replaced them with and only removed them after we noticed and mentioned it.

It was our 15 year wedding anniversary and we heard about how fun this place was. It wasn’t until about 1040-11 when the music started getting live. We made our reservations at 8:30, had I known it started later I probably would’ve pushed my reservations back more. I think this needs to be stated in the review however I would definitely recommend it because the music, ambience, food was really great! Such a fun place!

Food and service was great but this is not what I’d consider a “bistro”. Additionally we were rushed out as soon as the check was paid. We were only seated about 2 hours.

Immediately when we got to the restaurant they treated us with disrespect. They rolled their eyes. The waiter and the manager both yelled were aggressive. There was HAIR in the burrata!!!!

The food was very good. We were out for a design meeting dinner. I rarely say this, but the staff was VERY stuffy and standoffish. The food was pricey, but tasty. The dining room is beautiful. I so wanted to love it as it is right near my office. I will keep dining local and keep reviewing my favorites.

By way of introduction, simply do not eat at this sad excuse for a dining experience. Our alleged waiter Gregory was unprofessional and rude and was deplorable from the start. Not to mention his disregard for his profession and whatever dignity left at Bagatelle. Further, the restaurant was unnecessarily cold much to match the food. Who has cold food? Really?? I paid over $150 per person for pasta that was cold? I cannot believe I’m writing this as I was expecting to be blown away. I feel like I was robbed. This place is running on reputation alone and if they keep serving guests in this manor they will be out of business before the new year. Don’t eat here and choose a more posh, more fun, and more deliverable restaurant. Bagatelle and Gregory- you should be ashamed.

Seems like it fits in well in the Meatpacking District. We came in at 6:30 and there were only a few tables filled, not many more when we left around 8. This was surprising given its reputation. The food was good, especially the leek vinaigrette. I was not wowed by the desserts. The service was pleasant and attentive. Overall though, it was very expensive, even for the restaurant week deal.

Food is delectable besides the pizza could be better.
For an upscale restaurant the decor was deceiving.
The website said no sneakers. Yet....

We went during Restaurant Week for their lunch menu. There were 4 appetizer choices and 3 for entrees. We both ordered the gnocchi. When the bill came there was an extra $12 added to the bill. It seems that in very small print under the choice it said that there was an additional $6 for this choice. Neither of us noticed it. It should have been written in the same size print as everything else or the waiter should have asked us if w were aware of it. I'm sorry that I didn't ask to speak to a manager but we were in a rush. Also, I ordered the steak which was very fatty. I guess I should have complained about it at the time but I didn't.
