Gaspar Brasserie Ratings and Reviews
Food is so-so at best. Fries were good. Steak with them was chewy and tasted like old chuck. Velouté was a one-note green scalding blah. Maybe I'm too harsh on the food, but at prices equal to Bouchon I expect better...
The real rub is terribly mediocre service. Slow, neglectful and forgetful. It's almost like being in Paris except the service is better in Paris.
Won’t go back.
This was our special night out for the Holidays, with dinner downtown and tickets to the show Bright Star.
I had tried to book Cafe Claude but they were fully booked and recommended their sister restaurant Gaspar.
I’m so sad and disappointed we took their recommendation. It was one of the worst experiences dining out I’ve had and ruined our special Holiday night out.
The service was terrible, from the moment we sat down, to having to wait forever for our check and to-go bag minutes before the show was starting.
As soon as we sat down we shared that we had theater tickets for 8pm, but she either didn’t register or didn’t care, which I knew when it took her 15 minutes to get our drinks.
She actually stopped at our table at one point to say that our drinks were “being made”. We only ordered 2 cocktails and a Shirley Temple for my daughter!
When the drinks were delivered my daughter tasted it but it was definitely not a Shirley Temple. There was no grenadine and looked more like cranberry juice. We didn’t want to send it back thoughfor fear it would take another 15 minutes.
There was another excruciating wait for our main dish, and I ordered a beet salad! The other dishes were steak & frites and Arctic char.
Unfortunately there was no time for dessert and coffee and more waiting for the check with the clock ticking by. The bus boy finally dropped the To-Go bag at 8:00, too late to make the curtain.
Because of the waitress and overall poor service we were stressed for most of the dinner, had to rush to the theater and missed the first two numbers in the show.
I strongly urge you do not eat at Gaspar, it was literally the worst service of any restaurant I’ve experienced. And unfortunately mediocre food and drinks could not make up for it.
The service was terrible. Our server was sweet but clearly had too many tables to cover and didn't know the food and wine selection well. The escargot was terrible. The ice cream tasted like fake sugar. My friend told the server she doesn't like super salty things on her salad and our server didn't mention the capers on it.
We had a very lovely time at Gaspar's to celebrate my wife's birthday. We booked through Open Table & received a special promotion of a complimentary aperitif and port to finish off our meal. The maitre d was especially thoughtful and kind and moved our seating from the original table what was in a noisy section to a more quiet place to enjoy our date. The food and the service was very good. My wife had the steak frittes and I had the scallops. I would recommend both! Again .. thanks especially to our waitress and the maitre d for going the extra mile and making our dining experience wonderful.
Nice, intimate restaurant with impeccable friendly service from the whole team. I lived in France for 20 years and the food wasn't far off the authenticity mark. I've never had a more perfectly cooked bavette and everything else was more than acceptable with some great desserts and a solid wine list. Was happy to be upstairs away from the Saturday jazz band, they added nothing to the ambiance. I will definitely go back.
Another fabulous experience at Gaspar. Brought my boss this time. He's very impressed that Jaime was so accommodating and attentive. It's my favorite place to bring people during the workweek for lunch. We also like it for pre-theater. Food is always delicious and the staff are wonderful.
Gaspar is a cute French bistro located in Union Square, Great happy hour with $1 oysters, and $7 appetizers and drinks. Special thanks to Bob, the host, Nora, bartender, and Ben, our server,: everyone was so friendly and still professional. We will definitely be back
Two older women friends who live in different cities getting together for good food and conversation. We opted to sit downstairs vs upstairs where live jazz was playing so we could talk. Service was great. Beautiful large fresh salads. One had the pork chop w huckleberries and outstanding sauce; the other had the salmon dish, simply delicious.
Friendly yet inept service. We arrived for our 7:30pm reservation and there were still tables available, indicating that they were not "slammed" with business. We patiently waited and finally ordered our wine and appetizers first and a little bread please. The waiter did not return with the bread. We asked a bus person, they did not return with bread. The wine arrived after about 15 minutes with our waiter and we asked him for bread again. He returned with a few pieces of dried out bread. Now, It was a Friday, bakers work all night Thursdays and fresh bread should have been no problem. Our ($50+) bottle of red wine was hard on the edge of tasting "corked". My wife said it was ok and I didn't want to risk another interminable wait. We waited and waited ever so patiently and asked for more bread. Again, a few pieces of dried out bread. The appetizers never arrived and suddenly, after about 20 minutes our main course arrived with a bus person - first a steak and then about 10 minutes later an order of scallops and a side of mashed potatoes. Looked superb but the scallops were cold. I sent them back and after a while (seriously) got them back on a very warm plate but the scallops were still only slightly warm. Did I mention that the on the ball staff never gave us a serving spoon for the almost warm mashed potatoes?
The Maitre d' later offered us deserts on the house, they were good, however he never so much as apologized for the forgotten appetizers, or cold food, nor did our waiter. My impression is that they just are not organized, not pro and it almost ruined our wonderful romantic dinner. It's a good thing we are both friendly, patient people. Never, not even a little did we loose our tempers to the waiter or bus folks. We saw it as being humorous in a surrealistic kind of way, somewhat like a Fellini movie. We finally got out of there at 10pm. Happy Bastille Day.
We won't go there again... pretty good food, but served cold due to really disorganized service.
