Every dinner at Claudette has been really good to excellent. Last night was excellent. My steak entree was perfect... and it should be for $41. The beet salad was delicious and good to share. My wife's scallop entree was also delicious. Madeleines with brown butter sauce are a dessert favorite here. The best part is the service, which is done in a kind of tag team, meaning everyone is there to make you happy. From the host to the bus boy to multiple waiters and the manager, the care for the customer shows and it seems very real, not stiff and put on. We're so happy to have Claudette down the street from our apartment. Pricey? Yes. But it's the kind of place you want to enjoy over and over again.

Wonderful experience. Delicious food and service. I loved the ambiance and the look of the restaurant as well. We went at Christmas time and loved the extra cozy feel of the lights and the tree. We had the scallops and the lamb skewers....absolutely fantastic and delicious. Amazing drink selection as well. I will certainly come back when I am in New York and would tell all my friends to do the same.

One of the most delicious brunches downtown. The service is friendly and warm, and you feel like you're eating brunch in a French country inn. The French toast is to die for.

Very good, as usual. Perhaps the wines in the wine pairing offer were a bit "under tone"

We had a lovely experience with great food and friendly staff. And, once they realized it was birthday, they offered a free birthday treat. We were visiting NYC and so happy we stumbled upon this gem. We’ll always visit when in the area!

Went there for breakfast with my wife - we had a wild mushroom omelet and smoked salmon with eggs as well as boulangerie basket. Good was great and prices quite reasonable for neighborhood. Staff were friendly and attentive.

Had a great experience at Claudette. Went with my girlfriend for our anniversary. The service and food were both amazing, and they treated us even better after finding out it was our anniversary. The restaurant was a little crowded and loud but the atmosphere and decor were both nice. Would highly recommend.

Food, setting and wine were exactly what anyone would want from a french bistro. We had to wave the servers over a couple of times but they were all pleasant and helpful. Just know it’s expensive. We’d go back!

Claudette has become one of our favorite places in the City. The ambiance is amazing, the menu, be ready for your mind to be blown and your tastebuds go into a joyful journey of pleasure. And if you get the amazing chance to get Ted as your server you hit jackpot.

I have always eyed this cute place up on 5th Ave. When i finally decided to check it out, my friend and I were NOT disappointed. Cozy, great French menu, and wine list. Perfect dinner before a night out on the town, or a sophisticated mid-week nosh.

The food, service and ambiance were good, but the service was way to rushed, the plates arrived so quickly we did not have enough space on the table and it got cold ! We felt rushed to leave the soonest as possible.

Everything about today's experience was great! We were seated upon arrival, our server was friendly and patient, the drinks were great (I had the Claudette Spritz), and the food was outstanding!!! Every dish was so flavorful. Had the beet salad, Brussels sprouts, french toast, truffle hummus and wild mushroom omelette. I cant wait to go back, it was a great experience.
