First time guest and was really looking forward to this experience since many people I knew have gone recently. I came here for work purposes in order to capture content for a promotion online. Sad to say food and service was underwhelming. Our entrees were severely under seasoned (Steak and eggs & Mussels). We were sat at a table near the service station when there was many tables open. Someone dropped glassware that broke near my guest and nobody came by to ask if it was okay. Service was as curt and subpar, which I wouldn’t mind usually but at this price point I would expect better. Anyways, there’s much better French food you can find in the city than here but I can see the allure due to ambiance and interior which was beautiful.

Food was phenomenal, there was a tiny snafu with our order but the waiter and manager quickly rectified the situation. It was a busy Saturday evening so it made perfect sense. Every aspect of the dinner was perfect. Besides the amazing Steaks the Pistachio Bombé Glacee is a must try! I will be returning soon.

The ambience is very nice but this is a tourist restaurant more than anything . The food was edible but definitely not worth a second visit. The service was inattentive and slow. The place itself is gorgeous but everything else needs work.

Absolutely wonderful! We were a group of 5- beautiful setting- lovely outside table and while the restaurant was very busy, we had no trouble having a great conversation. From the time we were greeted by the 3 gorgeous hostesses and attended to by our wonderful server, we felt very well cared for/ the meal was delicious- beautifully prepared and very generous portions. Will return often with pleasure!

Of the 10 days I was in New York, I had dinner there 5 nights. There were so many good things to try on the menu. Ask to be seated at Kelvin's station. He's the epitome of the perfect waiter. Polished. Professional. Personable. Goes out of his way to provide exemplary service with a smile.

The restaurant is a bit overpriced even for NYC.
The indoor courtyard seating is very attractive though.
The restaurant is also not accommodating. Would not substitute blue cheese for goat cheese when requested even though they have blue cheese on the menu for other dishes. Also would not make Croque Monsieur with other bread other than sour dough.
Salads are not fresh. We had two different kinds and both had brown leaves and rotting leaves.
But two dishes are outstanding, beef bougonnions and crepe suzette.

My last experience here was not so positive, but thought to give brunch another shot. This time everything was tasty and as ordered (last time I had a tasteless quiche and it took three tries to get a toasted baguette). Our server went out of his way to make sure everything was correctly prepared. It's so convenient to MoMA, so glad we didn't cross it off our list.

Service was very good. Attentive without being intrusive. Very knowledgeable about the food, wine and beverage list.

Food was also very good. Steak was very tender, high quality and seasoned very nicely. French fries were perfect. Duck leg was super tasty.

Chocolate mousse dessert was fantastic.

Very nice atmosphere, we sat outside of the main dinning room, we look forward to sitting in the main dinning room for dinner and will be visiting their other locations in the City.

Thank you for a perfect birthday memory.

Excellent place to relax for a good meal, in the big City. Service was absolutely superb! My foo was prepared exactly how I wanted it and it tasted awesome! Although, the price is higher than I usually go for a Lunch, the food and service were worth every penny!

Excellent environment but a little noisy and crowded . Service was excellent, food service great and plates were large enough to fill one or two!! Overall was a great experience . We ordered the beef tartare , onion soup and chicken and it was very good. We ordered one service to be split and unfortunately the server did not catch that and ended up bringing two services who he were large enough to feed at least 3 or 4 so we ended leaving almost one full plate .

Service used to be faster and better. The check was brought before dessert even came. Staff is not smiling and pressures you while they are slow to bring water, drinks and food

But food remains excellent !

The place is beautiful but because of the high ceilings the noise level is absolutely deafening, even though there is no music. I had to shout at my husband across the table to be heard and had to ask him to repeat what he was saying many times.

The food is fine although over-priced. However, the mixed vegetables at about $16 were completely tasteless. What really infuriated me, however, was the hostess showing us to a table right next to the service area even though there were other empty two-tops and we had a reservation. When we said we did not want that table, another hostess showed us to a second table that was way off to the side and partially obscured by a large plant. We rejected it and sat ourselves at another nearby table without these problems. Why did this happen? I have no doubt it is because we are in our 70s and those first two tables were meant to obscure us from the much younger crowd. Can you imagine had the hostesses similarly treated black diners?! As a result of this, I will never set foot in La Grande Boucherie again!
