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.

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!

The food and waiters were excellent however the hostess stand workers were so unfriendly and obnoxious. We asked to move our table because they were seating us by the bathroom and they could not be bothered to accommodate us. We finally made it a point to be accommodated followed by the front staff talking terribly about us to our faces. Once we sat down the service was excellent and the food was even better.
