The waiter was so attentive. When I indicated that it was for a date, they gave us a corner seat . The food was amazing. Usually french restaurants do not give much amount, it was plenty.

We had such a lovely evening here. Everything came together. First, the service, the waiter was totally professional. He recommended wonderful wines and telepathically knew when we needed him. Second, the food, which is Moroccan/middle eastern was light and delicious. Third, the ambience, the decor is charming and relaxed, plus, it is not noisy, which I love.

Very impressed with Claudette. The food was very interesting, packed with flavor. Get options for small plates and large entrees too. Service was incredible. All the staff was incredibly attentive. Our waiter took extra time to answer our questions. I made a reservation for our anniversary. The hostess gave us a little cozy corner and they gave us complementary Madelines at the end for the occasion.

Friendly service on a crowded Saturday night could not offset an over priced wine list and food at only a level of good. The bouillabaisse contained little seafood and at $38 was too expensive. Apps were not bad especially the chicken liver pate. Overall, doubt we will return.

Claudette is a nice place in the heart of NYU. The menu is a blend of cuisines and the staff is friendly. Tables are a little close, so business discussion was a little tricky. The salmon was done perfectly.

Claudette is a very good french restaurant with a casual but pretty and thoughtful atmosphere. The food is innovative, farm to table (where applicable), and very good. The noise level is low which makes it an even better choice. The outside seating is a big plus in the nice weather. A strong recommend to anyone looking for a nice but not overly formal restaurant in Greenwich Village.

We had reservations at 2pm on Sunday for brunch and were able to be seated earlier since we arrived in the city earlier than expected. I really appreciated that flexibility. Our meals were fine, but we felt we didn't order the right things. I got the eggs & salmon and felt it was a bit meager for the price. I wish it had a side salad or something. Husband wanted the lamb burger but had just sold out. He ordered the hake sandwich which was greasy and had a sad looking bun. I'll try to order something else next time. Very beautiful atmosphere and good service. May try it again.

Tried Claudette for Sunday brunch with a (vegetarian) friend. Cute atmosphere, but we were seated at a table that was inches away from the people next to us, and it was difficult to focus on our conversation. Food was good, if pricey, and there were enough veggie options for my friend. Our breakfast cocktails were good, too, and I would like to come back to try some of the other, boozier cocktails on offer, since they looked inventive. The name and decor is French, but there is a distinct Moroccan flair to the food that makes it more interesting that your average bistro fare.

Celebrated my two friends' 21st birthdays. Everyone enjoyed the classy atmosphere without it being too stuffy. The waiters were very attentive and accommodating to our needs. They even brought out birthday madeleines for the occasion.
Their food was superb, especially the crispy skin salmon that I would definitely order again.

Moroccan/French fare. Food portions are generous. Enjoyed the lamb tagine - tender, juicy, not too much fat. Branzino was beautifully grilled and the waiter filleted it at the table. However, someone in our party is repulsed by seeing the fish head but the waiter said that the chef insists that the fish be presented before the head is removed. (This is our second visit where the chef refused to remove the fish head.) Other than the unwanted fish faces, everything was delicious, the setting is casually refined
and comfortable, and service is friendly and professional.

Claudette is a French restaurant with definite Moroccan accents. Loved the lamb kabob appetizer! And be sure to order the frites! They were seasoned with curry and came with a curry sauce on the side. Really amazing!

Overall we had a lovely evening, the food was outstanding and atmosphere was relaxing. We arrived slightly early for our 5:30 dinner reservation and the restaurant was quiet. By the time we left it was getting crowded and noisy, if we returned I would be sure to make an early reservation again. The food was dynamite - beet salad, half chicken, lamb shank and the flourless chocolate cake for dessert.
The only shortcoming was the service -our server did not bother to introduce herself, we had to ask for bread, we had to ask if there were specials (which there were), she was aware we were celebrating a birthday (it was mentioned while booking reservation and a mentioned again while ordering, in an attempt to spark some sort of rapport) but she made no mention, seems like she did not want to be bothered.
We will likely visit again but will ask to move sections if we meet up with our server from this weekend.
