If you want to dine in NYC and feel like you're in Paris, La Goulue is the place. It's so charming inside - you really feel like you're somewhere in France. My starter salad was delicious. My salmon with artichoke puree was just off the charts. The mashed potatoes were also fantastic. I finished with the best French dessert ever - profiteroles. It's a little pricy, but if that's an issue you probably shouldn't be dining there. I can't wait to go back.

We sat outside which was very nicely done with separations and heat lamps. Waiter was fine but not pleased that I wanted the burger they had on the menu until a couple of weeks ago.
We do like this place....feels authentic. Butter is so good you could just eat that. We say go!

We have been to La Goulue many times - the old one on Madison Ave. and this one.
The quality of the service and the food are as good as ever. And the ambience - one can think one is in Paris.

We spent an enormous time in France over the last 20 years. We have eaten simply
and well. Our dining companions enjoy wine, and we are delighted to have a substantial
wine list to chose from. The traditional dishes are toothsome as are the salads. The
onion soup, our salads --the duck and bouillabaisse eaten by our companions looked
perfect. Your staff is attentive and got our going and out in a timely fashion.

Everything was incredible - up until we got our check and saw we were charged the wrong wine. When I told our waiter she was extremely rude - she did fix the issue but did not speak a word to us afterwards, not even to say thank you or goodbye!

Extremely atrocious service. French Onion soup was ok. Steak au Poivre was inedible. Duck was passable. Tart Tartine was all mush. Couldn't be bothered to serve coffee with cream. "We don't have cream". A French restaurant without cream? What's next? An Italian restaurant without olive oil? And the service...was rude, unhelpful, and probably the worst I have experienced in 20 years in the city. Did I tip? Yes, the standard 15% in the hopes that maybe tips are shared between busboys, dishwashers and the rest of the staff who are all suffering through the pandemic. Hopefully the awful waitress didn't just claim it all. Don't go here. Mediocre food, and lousy service.
