Absolutely outstanding. Went early because we like to talk and knew the noise level would be too much later on (it was). Exceptional food, imaginatively prepared and presented, in substantial portions, in an unpretentious and thoroughly pleasant atmosphere. The service was impeccable. The "natural" wines, for which they are apparently known (we didn't know) were lovely: minus any additives, one tasted nothing but the subtleties of the fruit. We went for the prix fixe dinner and had intended to have dessert, but one "small" plate and one "main" plate each was more than enough. My partner had the fluke crudo, and the arctic char, both of which she claimed were spectacular. I had a most amazing gnocchi and chicken small plate which surprised and delighted with every mouthful, and spectacular duck for the main course. Best meal I have had in a long time. Will be absolutely be back.

A true gem in the West village. The food is beautifully prepared and delicious. The wine list, organic and mostly biodynamic offers a lot of choices. The servers are eager to help make selections.

Wine list is excellent, but food in reality isn't as good as you want it to be. A bit rote and not exceptionally executed.

A great new addition to the Village. Food was innovative , well seasoned,and of high quality.
Especially loved the lettuce and grain salad, fluke appetizer all very flavorful, as was the excellent moist chicken dish.
The smashed potatoes were terrific and the gougeres were perfect. Strawberry dessert a true summer delight! Very good wine selection.
Staff was very friendly and attentive.

The people, food, service and just overall friendliness of the place was wonderful. A perfect late summer evening and everyone looking to enjoy life didn’t hurt, but the staff pushed the entire experience even higher.

I can not praise everyone enough. They handled a difficult situation perfectly. We were a party of six and and since it is a small restaurant there was only one table where we could sit. The party who had the table before us had been there 3 hours and had no intention of leaving. The maitre’d was very apologetic and after 5 minutes provided us with glasses of delicious sparkling wine. After 15 minutes they spoke to the previous party arranged a makeshift table for them to continue drinking at and sat us. From then on the evening was flawless. Delicious food beautifully presented, a fantastic list of organic wine, a knowledgeable staff all in an unstuffy atmosphere.

What a wonderful new arrival! The food is really interesting and delicious—a twist on the expected but just really great. Portions were fairly small (and a bit pricey for the size) but the atmosphere is festive and warm and terrific. I’ll definitely be back!

Absolutely outstanding. Everything was delicious. The cuisine is inventive and fresh, of a level I'd expect to cost twice the price in this neighborhood. Service is very French, meaning the pace is leisurely for NYC (that's a good thing in my book!) and they will let you linger after you finish dessert until you ask for the check.

it’s great food and for the price it’s insane, very clearly run by people that are doing this because they like making food and they like picking interesting wines for pairing and want to share that with people. the person that was waiting on us lit up when it was time to figure out wines that would pair well with what we ordered and both of the options we were presented with knocked it out of the park. the strawberry tart thing we had for dessert is something that i’ll remember and want to go back to for a long time. really really wonderful restaurant, not stuffy or postured at all, i hope they get everything they want.

I would go here for appetizers and drinks. The steak was a very small portion, and we were grateful that we had ordered appetizers or else it would not have been enough food. The only vegetarian main dish was over salted and I could not eat it. I did complain while I was there about the saltiness of the dish, the chef was kind enough to provide a complimentary dessert.
The ambiance was fantastic and the staff was so kind. The only thing I'd recommend is providing a bit more sound control (perhaps additional acoustical treatment?) my husband and were yelling across the table to each other and there weren't many people in the restaurant. I would go back and give it another chance. The drinks and appetizers are VERY good.

Brand new restaurant, open just two months. Food was excellent (maybe would suggest less salt), wonderful wine selection. You can enjoy sharing different dishes. Would be good for a date night or large group. Definitely would go back.

The chef turns out deeply flavorful food in creative combinations unlike anything available at other restaurants. The service is warm, welcoming and relaxed. The wine list is very modestly priced and the selection though small is excellent. Ask your waiter to suggest wines. You won’t be disappointed. They love to match wines to your food.

L'Accolade was a super fun experience, each dish we chose thoughtfully composed and surprising. With four people you an sample nearly everything on the menu, all delicious except perhaps the two fish courses we ate. Unfortunately they ran out of the red wine we had ordered, which required a switch to something else halfway. Clientele typical Village-y youths, but the venue is welcoming to older diners, too. Charming French waiters help a lot.

Interesting, delicious and perfectly portioned food. Nothing was too heavy so I could enjoy all the courses. A very different wine list but but a knowledgeable team helped choose great wine to accompany the food, we had a white which complemented both fish and red meat which I was very impressed with. I will certainly be coming back to try other dishes I had a hard choice not choosing from the menu.

Good location in west village. Small bar with nice street view. Small menu yet all of it original and very tasty. Service is warm and efficient. Good wine list at acceptable prices. Noise level tends to be high as many fashionable places these days. Worth going.

Fantastic natural wine list and reasonable prix fixe offer for dinner. The service was very friendly and knowledgeable - and they had a fun 80s soundtrack when we were there on a Friday evening. Will definitely be returning.
