I've always had a nice experience here, but this time we were disappointed. We went for Restaurant Week and, while I know not to expect a LOT, what we did receive was considerably less than what we have experienced (even during previous Restaurant Week visits). The portions were not small; they were tiny. My wife's beet salad was (maybe) 4 or 5 bites and her pork main course had four or five tiny slivers of meat. My coq au vin was dry, tough, small and, while tasty, it was (most likely) cooked a day or two earlier and not satisfying in the least. Desserts were wonderful and the service was adequate. Overall, not a pleasant experience, and certainly not one we would want to repeat.

Restaurant Week lunch was disappointing. Beet appetizer was embarrassingly tiny. No vegetables with fish. Limited choices.

Restaurant Week menu was limited, portions extremely small . This was certainly not a way to encourage diners to return for dinner with the regular menu. I know that the food & service can be excellent. Not this time!!

Second time eating here. Food is consistently good, prices high for area, service bad. Waited 15 minutes to be asked if we wanted a drink, we then had to ask for drink menus, then my drink ( martini ) arrived and my wife’s Chardonnay ,( its not that hard, you pour it from a bottle), took ten minutes. Food service picked up after we finally got the menus. Food is good, menu is good, get the service sorted especially at these prices!

I called to tell them the Occasion was our 37 wedding anniversary.

They left a card on the table congratulating us but a little piece of cake or a cookie with a candle might have been nice for $183!!!

We have thoroughly enjoyed it every time we have visited. My only critique is that they tend to seat all the parties at tables next to each other. While it is certainly not a large dining room, they still could spread out the diners when the restaurant is not 100% full.

La Panetiere is a lovely, outstanding restaurant in every respect. If you’ve ever been to a French restaurant where the staff was less than welcoming, you’re in for a surprise. All those who work here are gracious and friendly. And the food is superb and presented beautifully. I recommend it highly.

We have dined here before and love the food and atmosphere of La Panetiere. During this visit (HVRW) we had two issues with different food items: (1) my wife's Coq au Vin was too dry, (2) my raspberry creme brulee still seemed to be somewhat, or at least the raspberries were still semi-frozen. Too cold for my tastes.
What went well? The service, as always, is top notch! The drinks were great! My pork tenderloin medallions were extremely tasty and cooked perfectly. Ambience is great! Lively enough, but, never too loud where you cannot have a conversation with your dining guests without yelling.
Will be back again and still highly recommend this fine French dining experience!

Our first time there, drawn by a Groupon deal. And we're beginning to figure out, the hard way, that "there's a reason" long-established famed restaurants need to start using Groupons deals to draw in more customers. Le Pan is getting old. The decor is old, the staff is old, the clientele is old, and the food... while gorgeous in its presentation... is not new/youthful either. We had a similiar experience at "Le Cirque" last year, with a Groupon, right before it closed. "Oh- Now we know why Le Cirque was advertising on Groupon!" It's also time for Le Pan to retire.

We had to ask fir bread several times as the service was extremely slow. I ordered Dover Sole and they showed it to us before it was played but the wait between showing us and playing the fish was too long and the fish was very chewy as a result.

The tuna tartar was not tasteful. The service mostly did not pay attention to our meal and place settings were brought out after the food was served which is a very basic flaw in food service.

It was a disappointing meal.

My husband and I went for our Anniversary. We have gone every year for about 5 years now. It’s the only restaurant we want to go to for our Anniversary. The service is impeccable! Food is always wonderful - (except this time my fish could have been more tasty). If you want a dessert, the soufflés are out of this world! If you are a chocolate lover, like we are, please get chocolate! It melts in your mouth. It’s reasonably quiet, nice decor and everyone is dressed up for their occasion. Pricey, yes, but SO SO worth it!

We come here at least 2x/yr for special celebrations. It's old-country French ambiance, so counter to the NYC noise level, and the noise level in so many places, regardless of locale. The service is unobtrusive and personal; truly a find, and its location, in the former home of a sea captain, with its wood and low ceilings and excellent food, make it a rare find in today's frenetic living.
