Pricey, but delicious and the service is always outstanding. It’s the simple things… like when you get up to use the restroom they come and fold your napkin. Or simply splitting food on two plates when I want to share. Many clients are regulars here and it’s easy to understand why. Thanks to Daoud and team for always taking care of me!

This was our second visit in three days. The food prepared for lunch was delicious. Perhaps because our second trip for dinner was rather late, I believed the cook was tired. The escargot and onion soup were way too salty. Chicken was perfect although the accompanied mashed potatoes were just smashed boiled ones with little or no cream and butter.

We enjoyed the attentive table service by the entire staff.

food is authentic French bistro style -- accommodating staff as we wanted Cheese Souffle but not available weekends, but we accepted gracious offer of Grand Marnier dessert souffle which was perfect...surprise 5-star dish was the crispy rice-tartare starter..lobster Cobb salad was tasty and replete with lobster chunks

The experience did not leave good memories. My party and I consumed one bottle of wine but the bill showed two. It was corrected but it should not had happened. We were glad to check the bill! I mentioned to the waitress the occasion was my party’s birthday, but nothing sweet was provided. Profiteroles were provided at the end without ordering them, not what we had in mind. So the experience left some sourness in out tongues.

Lively, fashionable, fun and with very good food. Sushi is a welcome option. Service is professional , but can occasionally be harried and forgetful. Interior setting is as atmospheric as ever--almost feels like the NY of old.
