Delicious food! Wonderful decor! Great service! A true treat, tucked away off of Madison Ave. My one critic was that the music was too loud and spoiled the lovely French charm.

Unlike its usual fare, the turkey was sparse, dry, and tasteless. Equally so was the stuffing, gravy, and other accoutrements. The steak au poivre was excellent as was the pumpkin bread and desserts.

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!
