La Mangeoire has changed hands. It is not nearly as good as it used to be. I have been there at least 10-15 times and I probably won't go again. My friend's steak was so tough that she couldn't eat it. They did comp half her entrée cost.

Food was great with delicious wine, but the manager of the restaurant was not good, I did not like his attitude because he refused to receive an Openable reward when we tried using it although we are allowed to utilize it at that restaurant. He should have understood the meaning that his restaurant has been registered in Openable and Openable reward system.

Brunch was tasty and a great value for the area (midtown east can get quite pricey!). Servers were kind and they accommodated out large group with no issue. Eggs Benedict with salmon and egg in a hole were crowd favorites! Definitely would recommend!

I come here every Sunday for brunch. The food is amazing and the prices are low compared to everywhere else nearby. $30 gets you bottomless mimosas or bloody marys, an entree (try the eggs benedict), and coffee/tea. The service is superb and the new manager, Gary, is so kind and accommodating!

We tried La Mangeoire for the first time while visiting NYC recently. We were very pleased with our delicious meal and the excellent service. There were many good menu choices but we decided to share the beet salad with greens and toasted hazelnuts which was very tasty and ample for sharing. For our main course we both chose Le Au Vin De La Mangeoire which has been on the menu since 1975! The dark meat chicken, mushrooms and vegetables were very flavorful since they were perfectly cooked and seasoned in the red wine sauce. Again it was a fairly large portion so we asked to take the leftovers with us. We were too full for dessert but it was a wonderful meal so we hope to return during our next visit. Thank you to all of the staff for making it a memorable occasion for us!

They were closed by the Dep’t of Health for over a week, BUT NOBODY BOTHERED TO NOTIFY PEOPLE WHO HAD RESERVATIONS. The fault lies with both Open Table and the restaurant. Obviously, the restaurant has given up, but it would not have been difficult for Open Table to notify those who held reservations through its platform.

I was very disappointed in my dinner the other night. This is about the fifth time that I have eaten here, but I shall not ever go back.
I don't know what happened to this lovely French bistro, but the two dishes I had were dreadful.
I ordered the escargots....One wouldn't think that a French restaurant couldn't ruin them, but they did. They were served in a plate with lots of chopped greasy vegetables over them and hardly any garlic. They were almost inedible.
Then I ordered the coq au vin. There was one dinky piece of chicken thigh and again it was covered with a sauce with lardons of bacon that had not been properly prepared for the coq au vin. The bacon tasted like a raw slab of fat and I couldn't find the mushrooms, or the carrots because they were all chopped up into the sauce which was too fatty and greasy and needed deglazing.
Since I wasn't drinking that evening, I cannot comment on their wine list.
I'm sure that there might be some simple and plain dish there, that could not be ruined, but if a French restaurant can't prepare escargots and coq au vin, they're in the wrong business.
I am very sad to write such a scathing review, but perhaps if the restaurant reads this, they might look and taste their cooking.

Opportunity for us to reconnect with relatives from out of town over a very nice lunch. The restaurant was quiet so that everyone could speak with, and hear others. Menu chocked full of "French comfort food" like onion soup, charcuterie, and salads, along with larger entrees. Service was very attentive. Only bone to pick was the extremely limited wine list, with a mark-up of four times retail.

We have been here 4-5 times over the past three when a group of 5-7 friends gets together in NYC. Always a good time—it’s clearly a French place and they do it well. The service seems to adapt itself to the group’s pace and we’ve always enjoyed it so much, both as a backdrop for our get together sand on its own terms that we’ve never felt the need for a new spot. Very enjoyable evenings.

The food was not as good as what the prior owner served. The coq au vin was cooked with carrots------it never is. It had chopped up vegetables on top of the chicken, including the carrots. Coq au vin doesn't have chopped up vegetables. The chicken just fell apart indicating that the chicken was from some prior day. The brown gravy was some sort of concoction. The endive salad was really good and just like what existed with the prior owner. There was a chicken dish that came with a salad. What would do without salads. The people who had it said it was vary average. I doubt we will go back to a place that we went many times with the former owner.

We tried Saturday brunch at La Mangeoire and were very disappointed. Starting with a bloody mary that was very hard to drink (it had much too much hot pepper) and continuing with an order of avocado toast ( not bad) which had wilted salad and greasy, barely warm potatoes as sides meant that we left before dessert and coffee. The good service and the nice atmosphere did not make up for the quality of the food. We'll go elsewhere next time.

La Mangeoire is under new ownership and is working hard to achieve the success level of the prior management. The menu is new, offering contemporary French food which is well prepared but veers away from standard French dishes by pairing the main entrée ingredient with unusual side items (e.g., grilled lamb chops with pureed chic peas and yogurt.) Service is pleasant and the new decoration is attractive. We'll try it again soon.

My wife and I have been going to Mangeoire for years and It WAS one of our favorite places. On our most recent visit we learned that the restaurant had new ownership and our experience was disappointing. The appetizers were oversized. I was told by our server that the salmon entrée was "wild salmon". When it came, it was white and not pink, clearly farm-raised. I sent it back. Additionally dessert was a very disappointing mound of merengue smothering a lemon tart.

We do not plan on returning to this restaurant. The old ambiance is gone.

There are lots of French restaurants in NYC. This is one of the OK ones. Appetizers were large but uninspired. Lots of Serrano ham on my plate nut much to thick (it should be very thin) and the melon was not ripe.

The chicken was backed not done on a rotisserie and was dry. The frets were very good ta though.

All in all not not a restaurant I will be returning to.
