About Le Perigord

Recently renovated, Le Périgord is a premier destination for French cuisine in New York.

We went on a very rainy evening there were few tables occupied. There was a party in the back of the restaurant. Everyone was very pleasant from the coat check girl to the host to the servers I read a review which complained about Inattentive service. I found the opposite to be true . if anything they were overly attentive The menu for Restaurant Week offered many delicious options. And the desert was to die for

We went for restaurant week lunch and were practically treated as second class citizens. We were never asked if we wanted anything to drink and had to wave down a server to ask for coffee. The restaurant was only half full at best, but there were obviously regulars eating there from the regular menu which was not offered to us.

Le Perigord is an excellent classic French restaurant, complete with tableside service, and well worth the relative expense. We chose beef and duck this visit, both of which were very fine, but there is an extensive seafood selection I look forward to trying--as soon as possible.

I have dined at Le Perigord quite a few times as I traveled to NYC on business. The restaurant has a traditional feel, but manages also to seem comfortable. It maintains its high standards of the past in both the quality of the food and efficiency of the service. I like it most because I know I'll never be disappointed in choosing it for dinner.

I came across Le Perigord from a Google search for "fine-dining" and "kid-friendly." Clearly, those two criteria aren't abundantly available. However, it had good reviews to that nature. The staff, and especially George (the owner) were wonderful. George visited our table repeatedly and referred to our daughter as a 'princess,' which she loved. However, we were harassed all night by two elderly women who were appalled that we brought our children--they stated that audibly on repeated occasions. They actually used the word, "offended." Fortunately, after enough of their complaining, the staff relocated the two of them across the room, but they continued to glare at us up until we left the restaurant after our meal.

The food was decent but the building needs a vestibule, as the front door didn't close all the way and allowed a draft.

This is a very good French restaurant. We liked the roast duck, which was presented and carved table-side. It's very well prepared and tasty, not as dry and well-done as duck confit. The dessert cart has many choices, and should satisfy most discerning guests. Highly recommended!

We come here for a special occasion because the food although fabulous, delicious, special and outstanding is very pricey. We love the tuxedo'd waiters that are extraordinarily professional. It's like being in Paris in a wonderful and charming old restaurant that always reliable for good food and service.

We had a superb meal here New Years Eve that included poached lobster, perfectly cooked filet mignon and a trolley of wonderful French desserts. This is an elegant time-warp, a throw back to the great days of New York French gastronomy. It is a jewel in the New York dining scene. Service was friendly and impeccable. And relatively reasonable for all we received.

It was a real disappointment because we remember when it was a fine restaurant. To start with, the bread was stale crumbly sandwich bread, not anything a French restaurant would ever serve. My guest had a good meal (halibut), but my veal medallions with morel mushrooms were overcooked and had a glutinous sauce that was clearly thickened with too much flour. The service was friendly but incompetent -- our wine glasses went empty on a regular basis, but the waiter was quick to clear them away after our main course was finished, although there was still a third of a bottle of wine left. Ironically, our empty cocktail glasses stayed on our table throughout the meal and beyond when the wine glasses were removed. Never again.

My absolute favorite French restaurant in NYC. The duck is amazing and prepared tableside with Grand Marnier sauce. Don't miss the buffet froid on view when you enter. The dessert cart has all my favorites: crème brulee, oeufs a la neige, fruit tarts, delicious cakes, or you can order a soufflé.
The service is impeccable without being over-bearing.
The wine list has some gems.

This is a classic French restaurant which is one of the few survivors of that genre in New York City. Food and service are as lovely as ever. Dover dole was perfectly prepared and my dining companions said the halibut special was delicious. They ordered soufflés for dessert but when the tempting dessert wagon came around they were offered selections from the wagon in addition. And the noise level is civilized allowing for conversation in normal voice.

Very disappointing. We have been there many times and loved it. We took another couple because of service, food and quiet. Wrong. We were squeezed into a small booth so close to next table of 8 that even the waiter couldn't pass through. Noise was such we couldn't hear each other. Service so bad we had to ask several times for silverware. Waiter forgot all about us. We even had to flag down bus boy to get check. Never again Despite this the bill had a space for us to tip the captain. For what? No service? An embarrassment to us for bringing guests here.

We have been going to Le Perigord for thirty years. It never gets old. The food is as close to France as you can get and very well prepared. Atmosphere is elegant but extremely warm and friendly as George greets you at the door and is extremely personable . There is elegant service by tuxedoed waiters. Some very notable dishes are the escargots and grenouille, lobster in coriander broth, duck and then those desserts. The dessert trolley is wonderful with a selection that includes mousse, chocolate mousse cake, a selection of fruit tarts each with an authentic tart crust. This is the only restaurant I would consider eating a tart. They are that good. We will keep coming back. A gem.

This restaurant has ben a favorite of ours for a considerable number of years. For an imputable French dining experience, there is none better in the city. One of the problems that I have, the appetizer variety display is so well done with incredible selections, it is difficult to chose other items on the menu. The restaurant ahs been in business for 50 years and has never failed to live up to it high expectations.

Excellent atmosphere and service, with a very reasonably priced prix- fixed menu. Traditional French cooking, with nouvelle portions leaves you not stuffed and ready for the soufflé's which are also excellent. Good wine list. A neighborhood French place, if your neighborhood is the upper East Side.
Old school and terrific.

I really wanted to give the restaurant a 5 stars. Everything was wonderful, the food, the wine selections, comfortable seating, quiet conversation without your neighbors eavesdropping. The restaurant had really nice ambiance. The waitstaff basically ignored us. We had to ask for everything, drinks, menus, check, etc. When they rang the check, they put the credit card through 3x's so there was over $600 on hold on the card and we received a call from the credit card company for possible fraudulent charges! It's really a shame, because the food is absolutely spectacular if you love traditional French cuisine. The waitstaff needs to step up. Oh and there was a "Captains" tip on the bill which we ignored, since the service was dreadfully poor.
