Le Monde celebrates the wonderful Loire Valley
which is known as the Garden of France". Much of
what is found in the overflowing markets of Paris,
originates from this region. The Loire is home to
some of the most beautiful and distinctive wines to be found, with many pairing superbly with a wide variety of cuisine. With hundred of cheeses,
thousands of different wine producers, sea food,
fish and meats, it is not a surprise that the lovely
Loire valley excels.

We took out our nephew, a real foodie visiting from CA and he loved it. It was refreshing to be in a quiet restaurant where we could actually talk. All the food was delicious and it was a tremendously enjoyable meal.

very good food except for the Brussels sprouts side dish, which was boring and tasteless and needs bacon, for example, something to give it taste

Classic French dishes served beautifully by lovely wait staff. Lots of great choices no matter mood or diet restriction. Great bread. Don’t want to rave too much becUse I want to go back and don’t want it crazy crowded.

I don't know what to say. I used to like this place but for some reason it looked pretty run-down to me this time even though the food was nice. I ordered huevos rancheros and I wish my eggs would have cooked a little bit more. I felt like they cracked open the last minute and served it. Our server was super patient with us and brought all what we were asking for. Ambiance needs a bit more update. It is 2020 and here is New York.

I always enjoy my experience at Le Monde. But some items are a bit pricey consider the size of the portions,

Staff overwhelmed on New Years Eve. Steak tough chewy inedible fries soft and soggy. Wine overpriced. Place was convenient to St John the Divine. Won’t return. Next year will stay home. There’s no place like home

Authentic Parisian brasserie food, with a Lyonnaise twist. Servers can be brusque (they're French, you know), but warm to you when you become a regular. The price quality ratio is excellent. The wine list is barely adequate, which is surprising, but the food makes up for it. The ambience has a crowded charm.

Server was rude and did not seem experienced. Asked for order before we even looked at menu. Asked us how our food was after we finished. Had to search him out to ask for check and there were only two tables with people left in the restaurant.
Cow au vin was super salty.

Wonder selection of background jazz (Desmond, Mulligan, Davis) was a perfect complement to the food, which was delicious and value-priced.

This is our nabe resto and it was for a birthday celebration so i really hoped for more. They put us at a teeny tiny table and then it took 2 hours for the food to come out. Sole meuniere was the special so we ordered it. When it came out it was sole amandine - a totally different dish. And when they brought bill out they also brought a credit card receipt from a different party. Not terribly reassuring about privacy. Wish it would be better.

Food for brunch was delicious and unique! I recommend the Belgian waffle which had carmelized pecans, bananas and creme fraiche-never had such a delicious combination on a waffle. That, with a side of bacon and a Bellini to start, was amazing!

Been to Le Monde several timer. First time with a reservation, however the table we got was not good at all. It was really small, nest to the cashier and super noisy.
The brunch was good.
Have in mind that Sundays are really busy and if you want I to have a quiet time this night not be the best place to go.

First-rate experience. My salad lyonnaise and duck confit were outstanding. My companions praised their tomato tart, mussels, and steak frites. Excellent wine, lovely atmosphere, good value. Next time we are in NYC, we'll be back.

Had to remind wait staff twice to please bring me a glass of wine that I had ordered. The problem is that the person taking your order is not the one who delivers the food and the person checking in on how we were doing was yet another person. I think they need to tighten up the hand off between wait staff.

Not as good as it used to be. I ordered Duck confit. It was a small portion and came with dried up home fries that were almost inedible. Not worth $32.00. My friend ordered a octopus salad which seemed like a bigger portion and she enjoyed it.

Excellent selection. Excellent following dietary restrictions due to allergies. We had 3 different appetizers and three different main dishes, and all 6 were excellent.
We will definitely return

I have gone here for over a decade and in the last two years the quality of the food has decreased dramatically. Today’s quiche had some crusty crunchy toppimg that seemed to be overbaked parmesan and the crust was inedible. The salmon burger was dry and only the brussel sprouts were edible. There has been a steady decline but today brought it to a point where I had to complain. Very sad because I habe always loved this restaurant.

I have been many times at Le Monde and I have enjoyed the food. I had never been there for Sunday brunch. It was crowded, noisy, the food was so-so. When our plates arrived the food was cold. The service was attentive and polite but very slow. So, I recommend the place but not on Sunday brunch hours.

I was there for a lunch meeting. The service was great and the food was good. My colleague had the chicken and I had the lunch special carbonara. Everything was good. The servers were very polite and attentive. We sat on the patio. To my surprise the noise level was low. The occasional ambulance sirens didn’t bother us.

Wanted a nice birthday dinner for an introverted wife but with our teenage kids that wasn’t wildly expensive. We also wanted a place that wasn’t too loud that we couldn’t sit and just enjoy each other’s company. Since it was a Saturday night we always dislike a lot of dining establishments as it just feels like you’re being pushed out the door to turn the tables - so strategically I picked a French restaurant thinking if the waiters were European they would understand, plus my wife is a fan of French cooking. We got exactly what we were looking for; Tasty food, thoughtfully prepared and a cozy ambience. The waiter was quite professional. As a few others have said - the steak cut was a bit cheap - but hey so is the price...and the kids got steak frites but it’s a large cut, not the most tender but they said it was tasty. I had the bouillabaisse and the wife got mussels and we both enjoyed them. The menu has a lot of choices that i would certainly return for. The kids ate some escargot as an appetizer and the Desserts were well made. All in all a nice place and we will return for a normal night out.

This was my 3rd meal at le Monde in recent months. It is a good choice in the Barnard/Columbia neighborhood. the food was very good. My quinoa salad with shrimp was yummy. My friend's oriental chicken salad, she said , was good but she left a fair amount on the plate. Unfortunately, the service was sooooooooooooo slow. at a busy lunch hour they need more staff.
