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 were a group of 5. We waited an hour an a half for our food to arrive.
The food is good but the restaurant is consistently let down by patchy, if not poor, service. We have been here several times and the story is always the same - a very nice range of dishes, hit or miss service. This was not a busy night, even though this is Saturday evening in a lively, moderately well-heeled area adjacent to Columbia University, and I requested on the Open Table app a window table. We were seated right at the back of the restaurant against a wall. Oh well. On arrival, barely any greeting from the host. It took quite some time to order three drinks. They were out of tonic water (what??) so gin and tonic was not available. The drinks then took an age to come and it took even longer to order the food and then to get the food. The bussing staff seemed to be working hard but we hardly saw our waiter all evening until he came to give us the check. Considering the area, nicer eating places are a bit thin on the ground. I guess this lack of competition is how Le Monde gets away with it despite the indifferent service. I will say, however, that the food was very good - organic roast chicken, roasted cod, a decent burger - and the drinks including a Manhattan and a house pinot noir were all very tasty. So yes, I suppose I would recommend it to a friend. Only just though.
Usually Le Monde is good. Tonight at 7:30 pm they had run out of four of their main meals.
The food was delicious and I’ll definitely go back.
Great neighborhood restaurant with consistently reliable service and food.
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.
food is getting better and better. Very good sea bass. Barbara much liked cassoulet and ANne also her duck confit
The service and the food are always excellent at Le Monde!
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.
It took a long time for the drink orders to arrive. The prices were much higher than in the past.
Salmon cooked rare as asked. Attentive waiter, though took a while when needed to bring another glass of wine
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.
Perfect place to meet up with friends or have a romantic dinner. Wonderful service, great food, and lovely ambiance.
Great food, good service, and reminded me of a café in Paris!
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.
The food was delicious and service was excellent. We were a party of 8 and we were seated promptly. I would highly recommend Le Monde to anyone looking for a brunch spot.
Perfect spot to have a good, tasty dinner before a concert! Service was great at getting us seated and fed in time for us to make the show.
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.
Food great service a little slow
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.
Everything was excellent!
Oil they use leaves a bad taste and smell on clothes
Brunch options were great. Very pleased with price as well.
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
Was hoping for slightly quieter dining room but the food was good and the service was decent. Also, they were very accommodating to my 7mo baby.
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.
Very nice restaurant, good food, nice ambiance, the service was o.k. but the wait staff was very inexperienced.
This time, the entree I had chosen was not as good as I had experienced in the past. I guess we can all have an off day.
