This is my favorite vegan restaurant! You MUST order the Konjac and Mr. Seguin crepe and you absolutely cannot leave without having the vegan macarons, which is my favorite dessert of all time. The atmosphere is lovely and the everyone who works there is great. Can't wait to go back again and again!

Enjoyed a dinner date at Delice & Sarrasin this past weekend. We made a reservation in advance for indoor dining at 6pm, but decided to change our reservation to 6:30pm later in the day. Thankfully the staff were able to push our reservation back without a problem. When we first arrived I was very surprised at the ambience/decor of the restaurant. On the pictures I had seen online the place looked very quaint and cute, a place you would expect to find tucked away in a Parisian side alley. Unfortunately this was not the case in real life. The decor was very odd, somewhat southern but also just a random mix match and there was zero ambiance. I mean a candle on our table would have already made a difference. I immediately felt overdressed when we got there. A quick glance outside made me feel sorry for the people who did not manage to get a table indoors as there was literally no light whatsoever outside. Not even a candle, nothing. We ordered the melted Brie to start which was the biggest disappointment of the night. Taste wise it was good but the portion was literally tiny and definitely not what we were expecting for a whopping $15, which is high even for NYC standards given the portion size. For our mains we ordered the Steak Frites and Steak Tartare. The Steak Frites was completely cold when it arrived but our server was kind enough to send it back to the kitchen where they replaced it with a new sizzling hot one after about a 20 minute wait. Unfortunately it was dry and there was no evidence of any truffle dijon mustard sauce as was stated in the menu. Both the Steak Frites and Steak Tartare were just good, and so we were once again disappointed given the hefty price tags of $20 and $25 respectively. Overall, the food was good but definitely nothing special. Be prepared to spend more than what it's worth.

Simply delicious! My favorite vegan restaurant in NYC. Every dish I’ve tried — 15 dishes or so between all of my return trips here — is scrumptious. I would die for their boeuf bourguignon. And possibly also the brie. Thank you for another fabulous dining experience!

The food was delicious and full of flavor. Not a fan of the outdoor dining but due to the current pandemic it was necessary. There was only 1 waitress which slowed down the service. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the experience.

This restaurant serves traditional French recipe but every single one is revised to make it vegan. I was a bit skeptical before trying it, but now I am amazed by the fact that the taste and texture of every plate is incredibly close to the non-vegan counterpart!
A must try dining experience (whether you are a vegan or an omnivore).

Delice and Sarasan doesn't disappoint. The service was almost as good as the outstanding food. I've heard that there were people who ate here that didn't know it was vegan until their third or fourth time coming. I believe that. This place takes vegan cuisine to the next level. Couldn't recommend more.

When my friend Lucy suggested lunch at Delices et Sarracin, I was leery of the vegan substitutions, being an omnivore, as well as a gourmande lover of French cuisine. Boy, was I impressed!!! The textures and flavors truly sing in dish after dish,proving the presence of real French genius in the kitchen. Highly recommend!

I appreciate the attention to detail that makes eating outside at Delice & Sarrasin a charming experience. It is intimate, comfortable social distancing barriers. I felt safe but it was still a warm and friendly atmosphere. The food was excellent and the staff was attentive without being intrusive. I felt the owner was present and care about our experience. I would go again in heartbeat and hope they get the outdoor heaters!

I have been many times, because I really want to try everything on the menu. It’s seriously an incredible spot and one of my favorites downtown. Anything you order - I can say you will likely not be disappointed. Favorite so far is the Poulet Basquaise

Waitress was nice but didn't introduce herself so I didn't know what her name was the whole time. I loveddddd the food and the table set up. However, due to COVID they may want to try some plastic utensils as alternatives.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Delice et Sarassin. We are both vegetarian and enjoy trying different types of vegan/vegetarian restaurants. The recipes and techniques are designed to replicate traditional French dishes without the use of animal product. Being a ver long time vegetarian, I cannot confirm how true to the originals they are, but I can say that what we had was delicious in its own right: great flavors and textures and a nice change from typical vegan places which are often asian inspired or "health food" based. The outdoor dining was simple but nice since it's on a calm and fairly quiet stretch of Christopher Street. We will be back.
