Worst experience ever at a restaurant.

Bread was stale (In a French restaurant!), Frittes were cold, soda had no carbonation (even i complained and was brought a refill), roast beef was 30% fat and GROSS, restaurant wasn’t even 15% full but we were sat at a two top that was so small there wasn’t enough room for food so my girlfriend got her entree and appetizer first, then after she was done, I got my entree so she had to sit and watch me eat. Drinks remained empty for over half the meal. Mayo had so much lemon in it it tasted like a citrus dressing.

Bathroom only has dryers, no paper towels for hands, the handicap restroom lock does no work and there is a gap between the door and the diners 10 feet away.

Lastly Waiter assumed the male at the table was paying, put check down and said ‘thank you for coming sir’ even though we were splitting the check.

The only thing that was good was that the Mussels were delicious

The best thing of the restaurant is the setting, ambience and Decor, it is truly a hidden gem in an unexpected place. The food was very nice, typical French bistro style, and the experience was nice. Staff was friendly but somewhat inefficient and slow, maybe it had to do with the table were we sat (in the farthest corner) but waiters never came buy and at some point we even had to stand up and go look for them!
The other thing I wasn't very thrilled about is that we were celebrating my daughter's 15th birthday, and specifically mentioned it in my reservation, but they were completely oblivious of the fact, I had to order (and pay for!) an additional dessert with candles...

I made the mistake of ordering the Skirt steak. The meat was like an end piece, tuff. My friends ordered the Filet Mignon which were cooked perfectly. Restaurant was great. I would definitely go back again. We did have a problem with service. After our appetizers came we had to wait over an hour for the main course.

White asparagus dish ($28) was horrible- tasted like canned so very disappointed.
Fish dish (cod w/crab stuffing) - mediocre at best.
Escargot - good only bc of the butter & garlic they were sitting in...
On the positive side:
Steak tartare was very good. Drinks were excellent.
Dessert - choc mousse - was also good.
Service a little slow (everyone is still figuring out their staffing and the place was packed) but our waitress was excellent when she could get to our table!

Susanna was a great server. Very attentive and funny. The moules were very good and well packed to go. This is my 3rd time, first going with my son, then introducing my best friend and finally my husband to the restaurant. Beautiful atmosphere and good food.

We were excited to try this place as it looked beautiful and the menu was enticing. We love French food. We went for a birthday celebration, which we noted on the reservation but sadly the restaurant didn’t acknowledge it. The cocktails and service were excellent. The food was just okay. We had the onion soup, baked goat cheese salad, escargots and beef tartare. The ambiance was nice but almost cliché. We joked that it was like the France section at Epcot Center. I think it’s fine for drinks after work or for tourists. We won’t be going again. There are French restaurants in NYC that have better food and also less expensive.

Our night was anything but “grand”.
Greet staff very aloof and blah and unwelcoming.
Waiter was a newbie, but had no one shadowing him. Was soooo slow and made several mistakes with our order. No manager in sight. No one ever came to the table to see if things were ok. And no one offered any compensation for the errors.
We leave around the corner from West Village location. Very nice staff here.
All in all, not worth the trip. We will not be back.

We had a reservation at 8pm and unfortunately some things off the menu we wanted were sold out which was disappointing. However it’s a little understandable as reservation was late and it was Mother’s Day

Service was very slow, food took about an hour to come out. Simple drinks like coke and ginger ale needed constant reminders, cocktails took about 20 minutes. Food is overpriced for the amount and quality you get... the 2 wagyu steaks we got were very dry and tough, but the tomahawk was pretty good (but it’s also $165)
Ambience is very pretty if you’re sitting downstairs in the main area- avoid the upstairs. You can’t see much and it feels very stuffy.
Not a bad choice to come here for brunch and cocktails.. Not so much for dinner

Not happy with the overall way things were handled, but when it came to the end, they were done helping before you even got dessert, no spoons or forks to eat with! The wine dumped on a friend, and the oh will pay for dry cleaning bill, instead of here let me take care of your dinner. Jeans and T-shirt. Is not getting a dry cleaning bill. Had get them to take wine off! It was great to get out, taking my daughter to NYC for her birthday! But I have no desire to try this again at all!

High energie brasserie with ample menu options. On the whole, food was very good. Best Caesar salad I have had in a very long time. Staff seemed somewhat overwhelmed, but we had a delightful evening and we’re very satisfied.
