The restaurant is closed! OpenTable booked our reservation, but when we arrived, the restaurant was closed for good (and had been for 2 days)!
Demarchalier closed for business and chose to not call its long term patrons that our reservation would not be honored. Disappointing ending. Hope owners will be more thoughtful of its diners when they open later in the year on the North Fork.
Hope they are open again somewhere - love this place!
It will be missed, but I will go to it’s new location in Brooklyn.
My go to neighborhood restaurant. So sorry today is its last day in business
Probably just as well that the restaurant was due to close and move to Greenpoint the day after we dined there. Service was slow - only two servers for a full restaurant. One dining companion ordered the quiche of the day - which was unrecognizable and not very good. Frites were limp and soggy. Burger was fine, sausage on baguette was a skinny lamb sausage that was dwarfed by the roll.
Yes but it’s closing
Shame as a great place
Wish they were moving closer
Heartbroken that this neighborhood staple will be closing soon, but looking forward to seeing it reborn in Greenportl Long Island in the spring.
Demarchelier was packed so the time getting our
food was nearly an hour.
Very nice restaurant with great food--too bad it's closing since the building is being torn down.
We are sadden that it is closing!!!! Hope it works out in Greenport we live on Shelter Isand over the summer and will visit you!
My wife has been here many times in the past and has always enjoyed it. It was on her recommendation that we come here before a concert at The Met on Friday night. I'm sorry to say we were disappointed.
Always meet our expectations
Always a favorite spot to eat and meet up with friends. So sorry to hear that you will be closing this location in the next week...which means we have to get back there ASAP!
Overpriced, poorly managed, thoughtless. Less than average food
We are so happy to have found DeMarchelier. It is a lovely neighborhood gem!
Our family tradition on the night of the Park Avenue Christmas Tree Lighting is to dine at Demarchalier, and a perfect tradition it is!
We went with a group of seven and everyone thought it was great!
My party of four had a most pleasant dining experience at Demarchelier. My wife and I have been dining there for many years, but our friends were new to Demarchelier. Their saying that they look forward to returning says it all.
One of the few remaining time capsules of a French bistro with welcoming staff and very good cuisine. Deserves to be patronized.
This is one of my favorite neighborhood spots -- the perfect place for lunch after having spent a few hours at The Met, or, as was true this time, catching up with my two daughters. Good location, reasonable prices, dependable, delicious food, nice ambiance.
The place is adorable from the outside and my husband and I were excited to try it. We were a bit put off upon arrival because the welcome was lukewarm and the service rushed and uninspired. My escargots were so dry and devoid of garlic butter as to be barely edible. The hanger steak was pretty flavorless. My husband’s sole was merely okay. The atmosphere was on the frantic side, busboys moving huge trays of glasses, etc. To top it all off, while we were having espresso we were asked if we wouldn’t mind vacating our table and having a digestif at the bar because they were eager to get a large party seated. We fled.
Classic old French style restaurant with both the charm and limitations. The staff could be friendlier.
We enjoy eating at Demarchelier for lunch whenever we visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The food is wonderful. The service is attentive. They even charged my husband’s phone . It reminds me of our trips to France.
Great ambiance and a wonderful neighborhood spot, but would have to say that in terms of the food, there are other French bistros nearby with better quality at a similar price point.
The traditional French bistro is a dying breed in New York, and Demarchelier is to be recommended mostly because there are so few such places left. Everything is of its kind and pretty good: the salad, the bread, the dessert. Nothing to complain about, but also nothing to cheer very loudly about.
Delicious food and very nice setting
If only the food matched the warm and cozy decor and the service. My husband's filet mignon was mostly gristle; the scallops I had were not bad but undistinguished. I had often passed the restaurant while walking or riding on Madison Avenue and been struck by the great looking interior of Demarchelier. I had no idea the exterior was superior to the interior!
a resurgence Everything was lively, well-timed and pleasant
Very nice servers, tasty food and a bustling but pleasant vibe.
Celebrated a birthday lunch with friends. It continues to be a wonderful neighborhood restaurant, always welcoming and such good food.
Very pleasant, kind of old fashioned French bistro.
It was great to be in a semi-private space that wasn’t too noisy. I only wish the waiter hadn’t abandoned us after the food was served. I was thirsty and wanted more water, and we waited a long time to find a waiter to bring us the check. The Asian chicken salad was OK, but why do chefs insist on grilling chicken breasts? They’re always dry and tasteless. At home I poach chicken thighs, which are moist and tasty.
I’m a regular customer and love Demarchelier; you do a good job. Thanks.
Good food and service in a warm friendly atmosphere.
Good neighborhood place
The mailer d’ was rude, unlike another we have encountered there. She was like one in a typical mediocre Paris Bistro so perhaps an authentic experience. Food was over-salted. Coq sure vin: dark meat mushy, breast hard as a rock. Bar Boulud is magnitudes better.
For local lunches only. It feels very French. which is its most appealing quality, but the food is mediocre.
The service is slow and, often, unresponsive.
Just wonderful. We were a large group but Demarchelier worked with us and met all our needs. Outstanding service, food and wine! We will be back!!
