Northern Alsace pizzas cooked in the traditional open flames is at the heart of a visit to La Tarte Flambee at UES. A perfect blend of paper thin dough slathered in a creamy topping and then topped with bacon, onions and other seasonings is the signature dish, but the owners have also translated this recipe into a startling number of options.

Guests to La Tarte Flambee can opt to create their own, choosing from a long list of vegetables, meats, and other toppings. They can also let the chefs do the selection and choose from the list of savory fare. For those interested in a dessert, La Tarte Flambee also makes a wonderful array of sweet options, and most are topped with fruit, chocolate or even ice cream.

We dined early (5:00 PM) and they were already out of the salad and soup we wanted to order. The Caesar Salad with chicken was a disappointment; a chicken might have been dragged through it at some point, but that's just about all the evidence of chicken there was. Service was just odd.

We were concerned when we first walked in because the place looks sketchy but as soon as we met our server and saw the menu, we knew we were in the right place! The wines are authentic Alsatian and the food is top notch! Our server was also enthusiastic and great!!

They are excellent at what they do - meaning that if you are looking for something special - and tasty - I recommend you try this hidden gem. Their "tarte flambee" is on point and delicious. Recommended specifically for those who eat pork (half the menu has pork).
The wine list is descent and appropriate.
I would recommend this place to anyone.

This was a great find for pre-concert at the Y. The flammies were excellent. Our waiter suggested we share three between 4 of us and that worked out just right. We had a mixed vegetable, a honey and goat cheese, and a salmon, and they were all tasty. Nice Alsatian Reisling and a dessert flammie to top it off.

Our server was super nice and the ambiance was lowkey and cosy. The tarte flambee was excellent and great for sharing. Noise from semitrucks on the street was sometimes jarring but that's not the restaurant's fault.

Food was interesting and good but overall expensive for what it is. Drinks are very pricey for the ambiance and menu

It was 88 degrees and humid. They had door and windows open. Oven on. Fan off. I was dripping wet and staff had the audacity to to tell us that the AC was on. Why would you have the windows open and door as well with the AC on. It was a sweat box inside. And they lied. Scratch them forever.

Try all the tartes flanbees. Especially good were the goat cheese, Gruyere and Munster. Save room for dessert too, especially the banana split tartes. Service is very quick, attentive and friendly too. Great place overall,

Having visited Alsace many many times over the years, New York City finally has a touch of Alsace on the upper Eastside. The food is authentic the tarte clambers are absolutely wonderfulwith local Alsatian beer, I felt as though I was in my favorite restaurant in eastern France.

The servers were drinking while we ate and barley paid attention to us. We were very upset and disapointed

Food is great. Better as a brunch spot with lots of sharing than for dinner. Super friendly servers and very knowledgeable.

Oops thought I was typing in the review box above. Fun place, Very small. The guys who run it truly enjoy themselves. Party of 4, we ordered some house red and let them bring on the crepe-like pizza, gruyere, bacon, onions lots of different varieties.

2nd trip will go back

We picked the restaurant based more on location than menu, but we loved the food, the helpful waiter, the drinks, the friendly atmosphere, and we were only sorry we weren't able to stay longer. Excellent value for money, too.

We were three friends who had studied in Alsace years ago dining at La Tarte Flambee on a Monday night (half priced Alsatian beers!). We've missed tarte flambee since leaving Alsace and La Tarte Flambee offers the best one we've found in New York so far. We love both the traditional and the variety of options for the flammies (as they call them). The waiter was friendly and accommodating. The all you can eat is a great deal!

Found this place just looking through OpenTable..Very interesting, very small and very worthwhile. The menu is under the glass on the table..and may be off putting...Here is my deco: Go with some friends (4 is perfect, 6 would be ok) and let the waiter/owner/dude from Alsace guide you. Order a lot of wine and have fun...

We popped into La Tarte Flambé after a concert in the neighborhood, not knowing what to expect. We were immediately greeted and seated. The menus are under plastic on the tables and the restaurant is very small. I had spicy tomato with jalapeños and chicken and it was delicious with its very think baked crust. I see why people have said it is between a crepe and a pizza. My husband enjoyed his Alsacian sausages and potato salad and part of my tarte. We had a good bottle of Rose. We would go there again at a later hour. Tables are right together and there is a very casual atmosphere. Very reasonable repast!
