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.

We enjoyed the food, the gnocchi with black truffles was delicious. Our waiter was inattentive but the bus boy made up for it. I was previously there for lunch & all the staff was very attentive.

RW lunch. Not too many diners. Wobbly table took a few efforts but finally stabilized.
Great choices in each part of menu. started with gnocchi, delicious and generous portion. Chicken was also tasty but wonder if a bowl was right vessel for two pieces on the bone?
Chocolat dessert divine!
Excellent bread and spread to start!
Unfortunately construction outside goes on and disrupts views. But an enjoyable meal!

Service was great. Immediately greeted and quickly seated although we went early on a Monday (6:30pm). Was quiet while we were there. Decor is very schizophrenic, no cohesiveness (chandeliers and mod art).

Went during restaurant week but ended up ordering from regular menu. Butternut squash soup was good. I liked the crusted halibut but I have had better. The pappardelle ragout was really good, good sized for a meal. For dessert, we had Apple Gala and Honey Bee. Both decent but not stellar, although they were light so it ended the meal well. Pretty good French wine menu, and also ended with Armagnac and a coffee.

Pretty good but not somewhere I would return right away.

Special of the night- $120. For fish. You are joking. Two desserts presented in a glass case from Pottery Barn??- I almost laughed out loud. (See Steve Martin in LA Stories for how to do pretentious.)

Nice looking place. But more for clubbing. Tables are too close together. Sound and dj sucked. Couldn't hear anybody at my table speaking. Nothing to nibble on until main course came out. Then they put some bread out lol. Food quality was mediocre.

My friends and I didn't have a good time. Service was bad! This restaurant should train its staff to be at the level of an A game. The staff is losing focus. They are forgetting that their fun is to see their clients having a fun. The food is just okay. Missing a wow factor. The new cheef needs to work it. I know having this venues is very demanding and this is why I'm suggesting training for the staff (every person) and better plates from the Chef. Music was great and dessert ( thanks God) was very good.
