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.

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.

El lugar es bonito pero tiene muy mal servicio y al parecer hoy tenían solamente uno o dos meseros y nunca nos trajeron la cena. Era nuestro aniversario y nos lo echaron a perder. Pedimos Champagne y la pusieron a enfriar fuera de nuestra vista, tuvimos que pedirla a nuestra mesa. Le pides algo al mesero o al capitán y se ríen o discuten contigo. No lo recomendamos.

Take my review with a couple grains of salt:

Grain 1 - The last time I went was on a Sunday night. The place was basically all mine. I think only two other parties came through for dinner. So the service was amazing but there was no other option than for it to be amazing.

Grain 2 - I've been there for brunch but that was years ago. The day I visited for lunch we actually left before the situation fully leveled up.

Anyways, I arrived on Sunday night, about 15 minutes early, for my dinner reservation. I was greeted by both the hostess and a gentleman who would end up being my server. He actually seemed more knowledgeable than the hostess. My companion ended up being an hour and a half late! In which time, I got to know the bartender (who lived in Singapore at one time). I cracked jokes with the server too. Meanwhile, I had two "Smooth50" cocktails. It had a citrus taste but I can't remember the ingredients... VERY good though.

When my buddy finally arrived, we were seated quickly. The server very politely and understandably let us know that the kitchen was going to close soon. So we sent our orders in, taking account some of his suggestions. We had the Tuna Tartar and Gnocchi appetizers, followed by the blackened Halibut and the Scalloped Ravioli entrees. I thought the Tuna Tartar was better than the Gnocchi but my companion like them the same. We shared a dessert but I don't remember what it was (Don't read too much into that).

Afterwards, the chef came out to greet us and see how we liked everything. We of course reported that it was all great. I received a cocktail, on the house towards the end (I think they took pity on my having waited forever for my friend to arrive). It was a nice gesture and earned them that final star.

Bottom line: If you've got a free Sunday night, you should go, hang out with the staff for a while and then have dinner. You won't regret it. In fact, you'll try and scheme up excuses to go back. Mark it!

Our waiter was so sweet and helpful. The food was delish. It was VERY off-putting that when we went to sit down we got a stern reminder from the hostess that we would need to leave in 2 hours. We were a party of two and there at the very first seating. There was no way we were going to be there for 2 hours or more. It was just super rude and unwelcoming.

We came early on a Saturday night for a group dinner, I have been here before and the food is great and the vibe, the service is not so great which we knew going in. We arrived 7:15pm to get drinks before 7:30pm dinner, they kept us outside---they could have offered a glass of champagne at the bar while waiting for them to "clear tables" etc. Seems to be a High School hang out -lots of High school kids at large tables--service inconsistent. food is good--save it for brunch unless in HS
