A $65, 3-course Prix Fixe menu (with choices for each course) is available nightly.

I have come to view this as a wonderful place to have a great meal, even on those occasions when I’m dining solo to regroup after a long day or a work trip. The service, cocktail/wine selection and food are consistently A+. You’re greeted as a friend and not another face, but also not interrupted or bothered as courses and drinks come and go.

Le Grill is a special place serving a very high quality meal at a very reasonable price. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is professional, and the menu is diverse and creative. Every dish was amazing.

So why not 5-stars? When receiving the bill and discovering that my martini cost $42.00. Seriously? A $50.00 drink (after tip) ...

The cooking is excellent and subtle. The cheese soufflé is a very good example with good flavor balance and mastered technics. Unforgettable moment is the potato purée , it takes you back to your family best times. The cuisine is a blend of modernity and classics.
(desert were a litlle below)
Wine by the glass offer is convenient and allows you to easily coordinate to each dish.
Welcome was warm and very polite.
Last but not least, the elegance of Bernardaud plates enhances the dinner pleasure.
Veillez à rester raisonnables sur les prix pour le Grill.

For a fraction of the cost, diners can enjoy the atmosphere and food of L’ATELIER de Joël Robuchon. The setting is more casual and the flavour profiles slightly subdued, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as more formal dining experiences can end up feeling stiff (though this is certainly not the case at L’ATELIER).

This was an outstanding dining experience. The food is certainly deserving of the Michelin star, but it’s the service that is truly beyond what we expected. There was a genuine warmth and attention to our meal goes beyond training or culture. This restaurant employs compassionate and knowledgeable people. The sommelier is a gem as was our server. We will be back.

A wonderful establishment with a warm, friendly staff that makes the food even better. Upscale dining in NYC is sometimes impersonal + corporate; the food here is inventive and delicious, perfect portions, and feels low key for the quality. I highly recommend the prix fixe— I had the soufflé and lobster pasta, but friends who have dined here before sing the praises of many items. Enjoy!

Food was perfect!
Service a little slow
We ordered hamachi for appetizer - great choice!
Duck breast for main course was so juicy and well prepared

My friend made a comment that beef tenderloin was not tender enough for him and it was medium but he wanted medium/rare. They immediately offered to try something else. That is great and that is how it should be in Michelin star restaurants. He ordered lobster pasta and it was amazing! One of the best pasta we’ve ever tried. So the impression from the restaurant went up right away!

We felt really welcome at this restaurant. The staff helped us with all our requests (f.e. timing of the courses).
The first course of the menu prix-fixe was excellent. The degree of doneness of the meat of the main courses (duck and beef tenderloin) was perfect in line with what was asked for.
The portions of the main course are rather small but the chocolate dessert is bringing everything in perfect balance.
Price/quality of the menu prix-fixe is really top!
We had earlier this week a full tasting menu at a three-star Michelin restaurant somewhere but to be honest, this dinner at Le Grill excelled at several points that are important to us.

Having dined at Joël Robuchon in Paris, London, and Monte Carlo, Joël Robuchon in the Meatpacking District has become my favourite restaurants in New York City. The service in both professional and attentive, and contributes to a pleasant and memorable dining experience. I dined at Le Grill de Joël Robuchon and selected the following choices from the Prix-Fixe menu:
— Amuse Bouche: Foie Gras Suprême
— Entrée: Le Soufflé au fromage caramélisé aux morilles
— Plat Principal: Le Filet de Bœuf rôti, fricassée de girolles, sauce Bordelaise et pomme purée
— Dessert: Semifredo à la Mangue
— Dessert: Le Chocolat sensation — crémeux de chocolat Guanaja, glace au chocolat blanc et biscuit Oreo
I would definitely recommend Joël Robuchon for a special occasion or a special meal with family or friends.

By all means we recommend Le Grill de Joël Robuchon in New York! We had the Prix Fixe Menu (US65). The service is excellent, especially Ms Lisa. Chef Christophe Bellanca do the job very well indeed. Beautiful place. Informal but chic. The bar is nice too. Don’t miss it!

Dines here for the second time this week. Brought 3 friends with me. Again, delicious food, excellent and congenial and succint service, and we also got seated at the ultra comfortable corner booth. Also, we sat as the sun was setting, which made the dining room feel warm and perfect.

If I were loaded, I would come here once a week!
