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.

Do not go to Bagatelle for dinner following the boozy brunch on sundays. The restaurant smelled like old stale booze and cleaning solution similar to an urban beer bar. The first table we were seated at was so tippy that water glasses tipped over. (Was this table used for dancing?). The service was very slow even tho there were only 20 patrons in the entire restaurant. A number of the entries were not available. The food and preparation was barely edible. Two of us had the NY strip and 1 had the veil chop (basic easy dishes) and they were so tough and poorly prepared they were hardly edible. My steak knife was so dull it couldn’t cut meat. The mark up on the wine was 250%!! Outrageous! I wanted the 2010 E Guigal as indicated on the wine list and the 2013 was brought. The worst aspect was that the cost of dinner for 4 was $478.00 with out gratuity. I’ve have better meals and ambiance at chain restaurants. This is hardly a French fusion restaurant. The menu was uninteresting and basic. The bagatelle salad was a bowl of Boston lettuce leaves with an unimaginative vinegarette and some type of grated domestic cheese. Background music was pulsating club techno dreck which made everything else more annoying. I can’t believe that this place has any type of following or success. I hope NewYorkers are not loosing their sense of discriminating taste. More than disappointing.

Purple lighting , blasting house music, very un-accomodating hostess- not the French bistro as advertised on Open Table. We asked to be moved to a table away from the speaker ( there were many empty tables) & she rolled her eyes and said it was loud everywhere.
If they’re running an after work club, fine - the bar was packed but dont represent themselves as a restaurant

Food is alright but doesnt stand out from other less expensive but good places. Noise level increases throughout the night and can get uncomfortable - of course the restaurant caters to a mostly young clientele so that might be a plus. We couldn't hold a conversation properly, so it was a downer for us.

We came for restaurant week with our friends. The pumpkin risotto and gnocchi were amazing. I also got the tuna tartar and berry cheesecake which were both good too. The service was ok but overall good experience!

Everything was pretty good except it seemed very hard to get another drink at the table after we were done with dinner. The waiter didn’t check with us for about an hour? We had another guy cleaning the table and continuously hydrating us...the water kept on coming, but not the waiter.

When we finally decided to continue our night and get drinks at another place In the area, we actually had to wave and ask someone else to get our waiter’s attention.

My wife and I had a great time at Bagatelle during Restaurant week. The server (Michael) was attentive and had personality without being obtrusive. He was terrific. There was a little mistake with our food and they were apologetic and really great about it (free Prosecco--yay!). It was a good atmosphere; food was delicious and the chocolate mousse was otherworldly--salted pecans should always accompany chocolate from hereon forward. Beautiful place as well. Wine pours were generous as well and my Bourdeaux was really nice. My wife had the Risotto and I had the Chicken. Both were excellent. Just good feelings all the way around.
