We loved this place. It was our first time and we really enjoyed it.
The more causal feel was refreshing. High quality food and ambiance and comfortably casual.

Our waiter was not great, but not bad. He just not very attentive, as though we were not that big of a deal to him, but he was very nice and helpful when we asked questions.

One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. The food is always consistently delicious and the service is personal and top notch. You can just tell that the people who work there love their job, the restaurant and each other. The beet salad is a revelation and the black bass is one of my favorite dishes ever. I just love it here.

Claudette has some great dishes in a cozy, festive venue. Notable dishes were a lentil soup with pomegranate seeds and slightly spicy carrot appetizer. Definitely a place to go for a lively night out with creative, well thought out food.

One of my favourite meals in 6 months in NYC. Everything we had was delicious and perfect for sharing, which is exactly what we hoped for. The staff was highly professional yet warm and the ambiance was polished but not intimidating. We will definitely be back.

A server dropped water on my dining companion’s lap, dousing her purse and her phone, and we were left to sit there far too long... we had waited to order dessert, soaked, and by the time our server came back to our table, it was far too late. (We both were a bit annoyed by this!)

I went during restaurant week and the only bad thing I can say is that our waiter largely ignore us after we placed our order and we didn't see him again until the bill came. All the food was great.

A nice find (although clearly well discovered before us--place was jammed). Well prepared, wonderfully tasty food; warm, friendly reception; good table service; nice vibe overall; fairly priced and good value. Only issues were tight seating and, more important, really high noise level. Would return (early, to avoid the worst of the crowding and noise) and recommend, but keeping those concerns in mind.

We were Maitre D’ greeted us warmly and and found a warm quiet corner as requested. She enthusiastically recommended highlights from the menu of vegetarian variety also as we requested. We were so thrilled to find this spot with good food, and a warm inviting setting which is reflective of an owner/manager who knows his clientele and caters to their needs, wants and desires. We will definitely return.

It’s not a real French restaurant so the price is much cheaper than ‘real’ one. The atmosphere is good but the food is not the type I like.

Was there reuniting with a friend after many years, and celebrating our shared birthday which was a few weeks before. The waiter was very friendly and very helpful with both wine and the menu. My friend and i shared the truffle hummus, lamb kefta, beet salad, and salmon. They were all delicious. The kefta and beet salad were spicy and flavorful (but not too spicy). For dessert we had the pot de creme and the madeleines...a great end to a great dinner. Will be back!

We had a 7:30 reservation and did not get seated until 8:00pm. We were told we would be taken care of for the long wait and nothing was done. Three of our party of 4 ordered soup. No spoons were brought to table and we had to ask for them after soup served. Soup was served cold. It was extremely disappointing. Three of us ordered a dessert that needed a knife to cut but only one knife was brought to the table. Two items from restaurant week menu were not available. The decor was nice but not enough to overcome the long wait, service mishaps and cold food.
