    Good restaurant, excellent service. Drinks must be better, especially champagne. The lamb, excellent, but the risotto was a little bit overcooked. Wine, extraordinary Desserts could be better. Very good atmosphere

    Sorry to say, but very dissapointed. After two years, tonite’s dinner did meet my expectations of a Long time customer. We had a poor experiencial with the Sommelier’ service. I asked him to come back once we had figured our meal; and he got upset and never came back..!! They rushed us the food, by the time I had a chance to order a Pinot Noir we were half into main courses and wine was -5o C too cold. And food was not tasty. I ended ordering additional bread. Imagine…. A few more issues : - do they have a service entrance ..?? Kitchen employees were leaving through the main dinning area. - employees were seating on the tables. Another waiter was folding table tops and napkins seated on a another table and it was 9:30 !! Come on !! - what use does it have, having waiters using face masks under their chin. Not worth my money. 😫

    Perfection, the staff was extremely professional, accommodating, and super-friendly! (In my opinion very unusual for a traditionally French Bistro). The food was as usual, DELISH, but I especially LOVED❤️❤️ the X Sancerre! All in all it was a wonderful Sunday afternoon catch up with friends! Montgomery Frazier “TheImageGuru” @sohomuse

    Calmly excellent food and exceptionally well-informed service make this a genuinely French experience. So do the packed-together tables, so maybe not the place if you are intending to swap state secrets. For any other reason though, just about perfect.

    My husband and I always have lunch or dinner at La Goulue whenever we are in New York City. The food here can be as good as in most of the restaurants that we visit in Paris. Service is always the best. However, the prices were higher than expected this year. It continues to be convenient for us to stay in the neighborhood.

    Had Dinner with a friend. They didn’t bring us the wine list and kept offering us the most expensive glasses they had. I asked to see the wine list several times and they kept taking it away. Soft shell crab special was very good. Steak frites was average. The fries were terrific. With so many good French restaurants in the area, would choose somewhere else next time.

    Perfect evening from the moment you enter the restaurant..the lobster bisque was exceptional,the sushi (yes,it’s French restaurant but great sushi),extensive wine list and desserts .. I have had them all but the Classic French Profiteroles with Ice Cream Filling and Warm Chocolate Sauce Topping was simply heavenly! The service is exemplary with polite staff without being stuffy . My waiter Lukka was knowledge and provided some wonderful suggestions ..Can’t wait to return.
