we love it here. it is somewhat expensive and the ambiance is adequate but the service is amazing and we always enjoy our meals!
Entrees were excellent. Crepe Suzette dessert, weak. Was pre made, not fresh. Sort of disappointing. Expect more from an authentic French restaurant. Having said this, been going to La Goulue since I was a child and will continue to frequent due to sentiment and quality food.
Good experience overall
The crowd is to old even for a posh ues restaurant
It was a long and well-worth-it wait for the re-opening. Food was tremendous and service was outstanding.
Superb food in a Parisian atmosphere with service to match. Our second visit. Will be back.
Expected house cut and fried French fries- frozen fries.
Waiters seemed too busy though restaurant was not full, to finally ask us if we wanted a drink, then bring us a menu & then give us a dessert menu. Everything was a long wait . We used to be regulars at the old La Goulue on Madison, we will not be regular here. We ordered a duck dish which was dry. At those prices we expect attentive service.
It is the perfect bistrot all around
Great team from years ago,
Always come here when visiting New York- atmosphere and food is authentic to bistros in Paris- love it!
I have been to The old location several times; first in The new adrees; love The place and The Food; sunday menú are very good; drinks Where excelent . I just hope next time they dont send me to siberia!
EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT FROM THE AMBIENCE TO THE SERVICE, TO THE FOOD. CAN'T WAIT TO EAT THERE AGAIN.
I love this restaurant for it’s harm,it’s staff and it’s food....I don’t need anything else
Always great and fun! It’s a happening restaurant.
Pleasant environment and easy to talk. Quiche was good but not great - not hot when served.
Did not disappoint! Just like it was many years ago. Wait staff is very friendly and helpful. Food was like I remembered
Excellent place, was full, nice people. Good service, good ambiance.
They have bull shot cocktail, that is not usually in place o even at bars in nyc. We had white asparagus, they were delicious. A steak bernaise, sauce was really good, meat was a little hard. Wine list very good. For dessert we had a créeme brûlée, excellent.
We will go again, because we will like to try another things on the menu.
Lunch - very much a French Bistro with a nice selection of choices on menu and a good wine list. Charming room - reasonably small and intimate. Service was attentive, though they need to train their staff not to visit with each other at the station. Have not been to the restaurant since it originally opened in the 1970's in a brownstone on the east side. The restaurant gained great success for some years and was too busy to be enjoyable. Had a good trip down memory lane.
Loved the staff. Excellent service. Smoked salmon was amazing. Only issue, Potato leek soup lacked flavor. Wines were superb. Will be back over and over again.
Loved the ambience, the food and the service!
The desserts were mediocre, but the main problem was the manager. It was a very cold day and I asked him if he would phone for a taxi to take my niece to La Guardia. He said he would do so. He did NOT phone, and the waiter told me that they never did. We stood on the street in the cold, waiting for a cab. Lying to customers is not a good practice, in my opinion.
As always, the food and service at La Goulue was superb ! I had the Salade Nicoise and my freind had the scallops special...both dee lish !
Best french bistro I've been to in ages; GREAT brussels sprouts and fab scallops
Perfect Chicken, fish and especially friendly, attentive, professional service with no haughtiness. Our new favorite Manhattan French restaurant.
Always great! Food, Ambiance, Service, Location. One of favorites and will always recommend!
A truly lovely experience
Yummy Felt as though we were dining on the left bank.
It is always a pleasure to dine at La Goulue. Wonderful food, excellent service, pleasant ambiance. My wife and I choose to celebrate important occasions at La Goulue - we know that we'll always have a memorable time there.
Over priced and not tasty
La Goulue delivered on every expectation. It was a special birthday celebration. We were seated as soon as we arrived at a very comfortable, and "quiet," table. Cocktails -- Manhattan the "new" La Goulue may be even better! Best Dover Sole I've ever eaten. All of our choices -- and all of the extras -- did not disappoint. Welcome back!
Always a favorite spot. Consistently great service, ambiance and food.
Great place, incredible service and outstanding food. It’s always a pleasure to dine there.
A nice surprise! In a city where French Bistros have become almost as common as pretzel carts this place stands apart. A solid menu with flawless ingredients, preparation and presentation complimented by excellent waitstaff. Along with a great wine list and sommelier made for a memorable evening.
A New York institution reborn! Beautfiul space that captures all the character of the original location. A must when you are in New York...
No soufflé on Sunday!!!!
LUCKY US to have La Goulue only 2 blocks away. I love their tuna tartare and Dale loves their onion soup. I love their sole meuniere. Dale has really liked everything she's had there. The restaurant is gorgeous and although it's busy, there's no problem hearing each other. Great restaurant run by really nice people.
Very mediocre meal. The Dover sole was relatively tasteless and came without sauce or other embellishments, which might have helped. The truffle fries seemed to be lacking truffles. Overall, meh.
I live out of town and when I visit the city I look forward to having a fun lunch with
friends or family. We had a great time. So glad the new La Goulue refreshes my
Staff very accommodating.
Food was awesome but seating is right on top of one another makes whole affair less than intimate for date night.
Really wonderful restaurant: food is fabulous, the wine list is excellent, the service is impeccable and the ambiance is lively but not too loud.
