Felix was recommended by a friend. Although everything was good we were the only 3 persons in the restaurant. I suppose it is more a restaurant to visit in the summer for drinks and dinner.

I would have given this restaurant 5 stars for each sector if the plates that served a steak a'pauve was hot or even warm, but sadly they were EXTREMLY cold, it made the sauce turn cold very quickly, also a true French Steak a'puave should be served over a Fillet cut. apart from that a great place to go to get the feel of a typical French and European eatery. We will come back but perhaps give the steak a miss, the cheese board was great and the server was very attendive top marks.

Sorry about the cold plates.

The noise level in this restaurant was absolutely the worst we have ever experienced. Perhaps a younger group won’t find the bar noise plus the tv noise acceptable but our waiter couldn’t hear us and we could not hear anything that any of the 3 of us said.
The food was adequate at best. A waste of an evening

You should be more specific that customers can only pay with American Express or cash, seen that it takes a burden to have to withdraw cash at the restaurant. In general very bad and slow service! The food was good though!

It would have been very good if we hadn’t had to wait for almost an hour for the table. The hostess did offer a drink while we waited.

We’ve eaten many times at Felix but this was by far the worst. You know times when you apparently have no waiter. The steak (steak au poivre) was tough and stringy, which is an indication we’ll not return.

I never write reviews but this Sunday at Felix deserves one. I made the reservation 2 weeks in advance because a friend was coming from Mexico to celebrate her birthday. Our reservation was at 3:30 and they seated us at 4:15, there wasn't any problem with that because the rest of the party arrived late. Once we were seated we ordered our food which was great and then decided we did not want any dessert but we were going to order another bottle of wine. The waiter came back with the check and was super rude about it, telling us that he was not going to serve us any more alcohol and that we needed to get up and go to the bar if we wanted to drink more. It was 5:15, we were only seated there for one hour and we were basically kicked out from the restaurant because there was no space at the bar to even stand up without being pushed. We told him we wanted dessert and he ignored us for about 20 minutes, he only came back when we gave him the check and did not even say thank you. It is the worst service and it was very unfair that I made the reservation for a special occasion two weeks in advance and only were seated for one hour. My friend ended up being kicked out from there on her birthday at 5:15 pm. The hostess was very kind about it but to be honest it is not worth it, they overbook tables and all of the waiters are screaming at each other and kicking everyone out after they take their last bite.
Terrible experience I don't recommend it to anyone!!! Unless you like eating in 20 minutes, being sent to the bar where theres no space and also get a check with an obligatory 20% tip for the worst service ever.

Big table of 15 for lunch for my wifes birthday. a windy snowy friday. cozt environment for that kind of day. service was spotty but friendly. food was good. wine was good and reasonably priced by the bottle. when a few things went wrong (understandable for such a large paryy) they comped us the late food, plus brought an extra bottle of wine on the house. overall a really fun experience. to me a test of a restaurant is not whether service is pefect but how graciously they handle mistakes., and the s place did a great job of that.

Felix lives up to its forty plus year reputation as a classic Belgian Cafe on vibrant West Broadway .
The waiters are congenial while the chef owner often greets you with a warm hello.
The cassoulet was divinely light and sumptuous.
The sole meunière impeccably prepared at a reasonable price.
The wines by the glass are perfectly curated .
voila ! , A stunning rarity these days amongst many restaurants, they have a lovely assortment of Armagnac to choose from.

A cosy restaurant with French cuisine.
Our waiter was a great guy from France so we could practice our limited French.
Food was of ordinary bistro quality and our check of $200 for two is not on par with restaurant or food.

Go if you want horrible service! Let me start by saying I used to very much enjoy going to Felix. When we sat down, we placed an order of drinks and what I already knew I previously liked from the menu for appetizers. Our waiter (Guy with the mole on face) rudely took our menus without us ordering entrees. I politely asked for the menus back. Table next to us had an issue with another waiter so the atmosphere was already a bit ominous. At pay, I used my open table gift card reward, to which the waiter looked down with disgust and expressed an “ugh”. I was taken aback by his behavior. He then proceeds to tell me that “no one uses these”, which I thought was ludicrous of him. He hassled is numerous times before a manager came and nicely handled the situation. My tip reflected his lack of professionalism and service, and he chased us out of the restaurant while pointing at the bill. I told him it was due to his immense condensing behavior and walked out. Sad but I 100% will not be returning.

It was a very quiet night there, only 1-2 other tables were occupied when I arrived close to 7p. This was fine for my friend and I as we were there to catch up and were happy to be able to have quiet conversation. The food was excellent, the location is super- quaint and cozy in Soho...love the vibe. Our waitstaff were perfectly attentive (as it wasn't busy) but not intrusive. We enjoyed our dinner thoroughly and will be back.

Nice location , especially for the summer. Food is average, nothing to write home about. There are a lot of authentic French restaurants that easily make this spot forgettable. Our waiter was unenthusiastic to say the least. My wife asked more information about the remoulade and the answer was "it's just boiled leaks". I asked for a steak frites medium rare with au poivre sauce....Got a super well done steak with bernaise. Sent it back got a fully rare version, sans une forchette. I gave up. In summary, don't choose this restaurant if you care about eating good French food and receive acceptable service. If you just care for location and appearance, and don't mind to overpay for food, then this is an okay choice.

Hostess was lovely, but waiter non existent, never checked on our starter or main. Couldn’t find him to pay the check. Additionally my onion soup cheese was burnt on top, and my trout was drenched in butter with no taste except the fat of the butter. My husbands meal was no better. Disappointing all the way through...
