We just had Thanksgiving dinner at LeMonde. It is a neighborhood restaurant for us. the Prix Fixe was less than any other restaurant we called and the food was delicious. LeMonde has plenty of room between tables-- a plus in this pandemic time-- and the service is gracious and polite. They let us linger after dinner over our coffee and desert. Love this place.

I had dinner at LeMonde-- my cod dish was really delicious-- I had lunch there about 6 months ago and was disappointed so this dinner renewed my faith in this restaurant. I will definitely be back. The service was also very good. We sat outside, which was nice except for the noise on Broadway -- but that isn't the restaurants fault.

Delicious dinner, as always. And the outdoor dining arrangements are really excellent - sheltered but safe, with individual heat lamps at every table, Very much appreciate the care that went into designing this space - and it is, of course, matched by the wonderful food. Perfect French onion soup, and an outstanding goat cheese salad with your choice of add-ons, like the salmon which was prepared beautifully. I've been a Le Monde customer for over 20 years and it has never, ever disappointed.

Food and drinks are always stellar. Only downside is that you can tell they are struggling with service (which most restaurants currently are) I hope they figure that out as I enjoy frequenting Le Monde!

The food was average and priced somewhat above average. For the second visit the service was below inattentive. My companion asked for ice; 15 minutes later with none arrived I asked again and was met with an annoyed response. Order taking and check delivery were slow. The restaurant's outdoor spaces were at their quietest when an emergency vehicle with sirens passed in the street.

We really enjoyed dining here last night to celebrate my wife's birthday. I would have given an excellent rating... it's just that I was expecting at least the dessert to be comp since I informed the restaurant about a special occasion we were celebrating that evening.

We already ordered a lot for dinner and at least was expecting one complimentary gesture for the service.

Thank you

We were really looking forward to having brunch here, but only one person in our party was satisfied with their meal, an omelet. The Belgian waffle was cakey, came out cold and the very sub-standard waitress took it back to possibly just microwave it rather than providing a new waffle. My so-called duck hash was a greasy, over-cooked duck leg beside an Eggs Benedict; no hash. The waitress was either inexperienced or just didn't care about providing good service or both. We had to ask, and wait too long, for coffee refills. The other service staff was more helpful. But it was a beautiful day and we had a good outdoor table with good people-watching. We understand that restaurants are short-staffed these days, and we don't mind waiting a bit longer for our food (if it's cooked well). Good restaurants let people know when they are first seated that the service will be a bit slower or that the server is new, etc. Most people will understand!

amateur hour at Le Monde. The food is good. We had the duck and the Moules. The service was horrible. They did not get anything right. We had to flag down anyone to bring us a drink, then food. They forget side dishes, bread, etc.

Reliable place. I always liked the vibe. Now dinner is outside in a shed (due to covid) but it's a very nice, spacious shed, where one doesn't feel on the street. Food is always to my liking. Service is very good.

We sat outside. Roomy, spacious and comfortable seating. Open shed. Closed on 3 sides and open across the front. Food is always good. Tuna nisoise. Great French fries. Great burgers or steak. Veggie burger only so-so. One of our favorite NYC restaurants. Been coming here foe over 20 years. A neighborhood gem.

I came here for lunch with a friend. It was a nice little spot in Morningside Heights. Portions were large, but the food was so-so, especially so-so considering the high price. I got the shakshuka, which had much more oil than the dish is intended to have, and the bread that came in the dish was over-baked (it was more like a giant crouton than a slice of toast). The taste was pleasantly rich, though, and the cheese was appropriately creamy and delicious. Our waiter was nice but the service was odd (she came to our table twice in less than 5 minutes, both times to ask us what we wanted to order. It made it seem like we were being rushed to leave, even though the restaurant had more empty tables than filled tables. I think perhaps she was aiming to be attentive but overshot the mark). If the prices were lower, if the outdoor covered seating had a fan that was turned on, and if there were fewer flies buzzing around, I would return.

The server was pleasant but not well trained. She missed steps of service and didn’t seem like she was sure of what to do. That’s on management. The food was definitely below par for French food in Manhattan. The tuna and octopus did not taste fresh and the steak tartare was not properly seasoned. We did not order entrees after three disappointing apps.

Service was nearly nonexistent. Both of us had Vietnamese salad - agreed it was soggy & overdressed. I had chicken in it - tough due to overcooking. Reasonably priced.

thanks.
