I've dined here twice now, a year apart, and had a wonderful experience both times. The service is fantastic (which can be hard to come by in this area). Everything we've ordered has been prepared perfectly (duck, steak, pork, salmon). And you can't beat the price point for a restaurant in Manhattan. As long as the doors are open here, we'll keep coming back!

This is a very good neighborhood restaurant. The service is attentive and caring, the food well-prepared and reasonably priced. This is a nice pre-theater alternative.

We had lunch on matinee day and were virtually the only two patrons eating. Not a comfortable circumstance.
Menus was quite limited. Escargot were tender but not the most flavorful garlic sauce. Steak sandwich on baguette was up to expectations. French fries were tasty.
Onion soup and beet salad were of average quality.
We will not return.

We sat in the back courtyard for brunch, there was at oat 2 other tables with patrons during our tome there. Very nice, shaded and quiet. Wish I could give the service 6 stars. Our server was so sweet and pleasant, helpful in answering questions. We had the Quiche Lorraine and the lamb burger, both were cooked perfectly, fresh. Then had the Nutella crepes, awesome. Perfect before our broadway matinee.

My wife and I visit Le Privé on Saturday night for a fantastic French dinner. The food was c'est magnifique! Portions large and exquisitely prepared. Prices exceptionally reasonable for the quality, taste, and service. The only problem was I was too full to try the mousse e au chocolat. Fortunately, there is always a next time. I shall return!

They have two outside area for dining. One is a lovely garden area in the back and there is seating out front too. Inside was very nice but it was a beautiful day so who doesnt want to eat outside! I got Steak with poached eggs. I wish the steak was less fatty but it was still good. Hubby ordered salad nicoise which was very tasty. I got an aperol spritz which was good but $16 for lunch .....ouch! She brought us a small glass of port to end our meal which was a very nice touch!

All started well for the three of us (longtime friends and lovers of French food). The bread with an herbal olive oil dip was delicious. Appetizers remained on a high level (scallops with celery remoulade, escargots, and a special of heirloom tomatoes with French feta).
It all went downhill with the main courses: moules frites, salade nicoise, and salmon. All had massive flaws, except the frites which were very good. The mussel broth tasted like salted water, the salmon was very poorly cooked (tasted precooked and then warmed), and the tuna on the salade nicoise was inedible (again pre-cooked and mimicking cardboard).
The staff was very gracious and replaced the salad with a new one with salmon (this time cooked perfectly).
I wanted to like this restaurant, but was so disappointed in the inconsistency. One might do do OK with appetizers, frites and some wine, although the wines were a bit pricey. For me, I’ll go elsewhere.

Overall, our experience missed the mark here. The service was very good throughout the meal, but there were a variety of reasons that we will not return. First and foremost, the food just wasn’t that good. The steak of the steak frites was quite fatty and was very brick like on the plate. A steak knife was definitely needed, as it really wasn’t tender. The frites however, were tasty and crispy. My wife had the paella which was far too salty and lacked other backing flavors. The price of a non alcoholic mojito was 10 dollars, which seemed high. In the end, we will not be returning as there are many restaurants in the city at similar price points with fantastic food.

Nice restaurant. Great garden but just too hot to eat outside. Wonderful wine and drinks. Perhaps a few more menu choices would be great for small plates to share I’d go back again. Staff was super friendly. We had escargot (excellent), moules frites (excellent) and Nicoise Salad ( which was good but I prefer fresh rare tuna vs poached — which kind of looked like liver pate— but taste was good)
Delicious port on the House was such a nice touch.

We enjoyed the high ceilings and open feeling the minute that we walked into Le Prive. The service was warm and friendly, and the creative egg benedict variations were well-prepared. We will try the crepes for dessert next time -- the tough, dense beignets were the only unsuccessful part of the meal.

Food is excellent - pleasantly surprised at how well the food was cooked. Noise not too bad. Only thing is that the ceilings are very high, and it's kind of hard to cool the place down. We were a little sweaty at the end of dinner.
