Now celebrating its fiftieth anniversary under the ownership of Georges Briguet, since 1964 Le Périgord has offered classic French cuisine in an elegant setting in midtown Manhattan. Recently renovated, Le Périgord is a premier destination for French cuisine in New York. The New York Times calls it “a French restaurant the way French restaurants used to be,” complete with white tablecloths and exemplary service from wait staff in tuxedos.
Besides tableside service of Dover sole, duck à l’orange and rack of lamb, the traditional menu also includes such staples as individual beef Wellington, pike quenelles, coquilles St. Jacques and kidneys in mustard sauce. And don’t forget to leave room for the fabulous soufflés and the legendary “temptation trolley” of desserts, which always includes such timeless favorites as tarte Tatin, chocolate mousse and floating islands. The extensive, award-wining wine list includes a fine selection of old and recent vintages at sensible prices.

    Overall the food was very good and I would recommend it. We were a party of two and the tables were very close together so that we could hear everything the people at the next table were talking about. The service was below the quality of the food. We were seated and never given the menu. Had to ask for it. Maybe it was just our table because I noticed other tables were getting better service. Overall the experience was very good and my husbands lamb was excellent.

    Excellent French cuisine. Prix-fixe lunch is an outstanding value. Delicious food on every visit with cordial and accommodating service.

    Le Perigord is one of our go-to places for special occasions. It's been pretty much the same for the 30 or so years I've been going there. And that's a good thing. I believe some of the waiters have been there for decades. Also a good thing. The food is very traditional/rather old fashioned French, which we like a lot. It's cozy and you can hear yourself talk! We do recommend!

    It was a Valentine s Day celebration and we had heard about the Restaurant from friends who raved about it. We were quite disappointed. The ambiance was sombre and insipid. The food was heavy on thick sauces and thin on taste. The service was attentive and unpretentious. The dessert ( a tarte tatin) was served very cold. The lamb was insipid and the accompanying vegetables were tasteless. Much ado about an old fashioned restaurant that has an undeserved reputation.
