Service was the worst. Inattentive staff. Ordered lox platter and they did not send the bread with the order.
Had a reservation for 1230 and when it came time to order coffee the waiter was no where to be found. When someone came to take our order they told us that our waiter had left. Would never go back

The restaurant has a Parisian vibe. We liked the decor with the lamps and the mirrors. The cocktails were blah. The menu is a mix of french and sushi which doesn’t make any sense. The food was average to above average. The food came out super fast but the service was inattentive. The noise level is high. Overall nothing special for a restaurant that has a fabled past.

I had the French Onion soup and the steak au poivre which were both delicious. Great ambiance and our Sommelier recommended a really nice wine. He also made a delicious French Coffee (Coffee, Grand Marnier and Whipped cream) that was not on the menu but ended up being the best after dinner drink ever! Highly recommended!

I’ve had great experiences here and in Palm Beach but this wasn’t up to par. We were seated at a table in a nook next to the bar, which was fine until it was clear the servers deposited dishes and checked out right next to us. One of us had salmon which was very good, and I ordered the branzino. While it was cooked nicely, it was served very dry, without broth or a dusting of oil. One of us had frites with the meal, which were a nice texture but needed salt and there was none on the table. I would have ordered more wine, but the wait staff didn’t circulate regularly. I’d be willing to try again but not feeling I can give a hands-down recommendation.

We had an outstanding experience and lunch at La Goulue yesterday. The server and wine steward were exceptional. The owner/manager asked us how we were doing and if if we liked everything. The staff was attentive. It was one of our best dining experiences in a long time. We look forward to returning.
