Truth be told I find the overall food scene wildly overrated in NYC. Sure, lots of choices and lots of good food, some very good. Rarely do I find really superb food. Well, it is À L’Accolade: superb. Went two nights in a row. I’m sure we’ll go again within the week. Excellent wine choices and delicious food. Great service. Highly recommended.

I went for a birthday in a Tuesday night. I found the hosts to be gracious and attentive. My partner and I enjoyed the food very much after deciding to get the 2 courses. I had the gnocchi and the roast chicken. Plated in an attractive manner and skillfully prepared, I wouldn’t hesitate to come back

The food was top notch. We got 8 different dishes and each one was met with a “Wow!” Service was really attentive. Wine pairings were great. It was really a special dinner.

Valentines Day dinner. Crowded and lively but not too noisy, excellent service and delicious small plates and duck breast main.

Excellent array of natural wines, some familiar and some new to us, which is always exciting. Chose the lovely, delicate Crudo appetizer and generous and well-prepared duck entree and monkfish in green curry. Busy Saturday night was bustling but not too loud, fun spot and happy to find a place that does such well-thought-out food pairings with their natural wine selection.

Had an outstanding meal at L’Accolade. The staff is incredibly dedicated to making sure that the diners have a great experience: they made sure to explain the different types of wines, each wine’s tasting profile, and they seemed genuinely concerned about whether or not we liked each glass that they poured before we committed to it. Moreover, the food was excellent, as it was creative and well-suited to the wines. You could order as much or as little to eat as you wanted, and the happy hour deals were quite good. The owners are quite amicable and loved to speak French with us! Overall I would give this restaurant 5 stars and I can’t wait to return

This was our first time here and we were delighted with the place. The food was terrific - wonderful braised endive and then delicious duck. The service was a bit sloppy and very informal but certainly friendly. The décor is simple but welcoming and the noise level was very reasonable, always much appreciated.

Loved the restaurant. It was great trying different wines. The food choice was different than anything I had and was delicious. Jacques and Benjamin were accommodating, helpful and for them being the owners there, they made you feel like family. I sill keep coming because there are tons of natural wines I need to try and everything on the menu looked great. We had the duck and chicken. It was made to perfection, it was juicy and tasty.

The food was fresh and flavorful, good for the price, and they have an interesting selection of natural wines that are fun to try. But we were given poor seating, at a table off on its own by the kitchen and bathrooms, and the service was haphazard, which detracted from the experience.

We have now been to L'Accolade three times, and the food has been outstanding each time. We particularly like the way the menu has changed slightly with each visit--so there are some consistent favorites but also new options to try. The intimate scale of the restaurant is very nice, and the staff are always very friendly. Definitely one of our favorite new places.

This is really a lovely restaurant! We have dined here three times and each meal has been terrific.
We started with the crushed potatoes which are delicious and the creme fraiche adds a great burst of flavor.
The gougeres are very cheesy and truly memorable. The hamachi crudo was refreshingly fresh and nicely seasoned
Next we had the moist and flavorful chicken and imaginatively prepared cod with tasty accompaniments.
The desserts are also worth saving room for. Especially enjoyed the chocolate dessert , with cranberry as well as the pear
with meringue. The staff is warm and friendly and very attentive. Kudos to Jacque and his team for this creating this very special restaurant !

We had an 8pm reservation but were not seated until 8:20. Service was soooo slow. Pork chop was cold. Portions were tiny. We won’t be going back.

Had a reservation for 8; didn’t get seated until 8:40. Main courses didn’t arrive until 10 and when they did, two of the four dishes were cold. Portions were small. “Raclette” was a plate of five mozzarella sticks. Bread and butter came after the cold dishes were sent back to be reheated. Overall, very disappointing.

This restaurant was everything I could have asked for, and more!!! The service is unparalleled, with everyone on staff being attentive and incredibly kind. The food is out of this world (get the tasting menu...you won’t regret it!) and the wine list is impeccably curated. I’ve eaten at some of the best restaurants in the world, and there is a special place in my heart for this place and the team.

The food was good, the service was not. It seemed like we were more of a bother than a guest. The staff however did take special care of certain tables more than others. We witnessed a Waiter asking a table of two to move from a 4 top to a two top to finish their meal because they need to seat 3 people that were friends of the chef. That was odd. We won’t be returning.

This was the first time we took our family to L'Accolade( my Husband & I have been there before) for our Daughters Bday.......EVERYONE LOVED IT.
I believe she already made a reservation for next week-end
