It was for New Years Eve with friends, clients and family. The place was energetic, friendly and familial. We had a glamorous meal from appetizer to dessert and after dinner drinks. My guests enjoyed it while the room was energetic with laughter and dancing.
The appetizers of snails, onion soup and coquill St. Jacques
Was there version with only two scallops over a bed of celery remoulade (a missrepresentation) of the dish.
The main couses where better, crispy french fries, delicious steak frites, salmon remoulades,,,, the desserts better. Watered down ice teas and Ginger ale at $5 each was a disaster with a medium sized bottle of Poland spring at $14 was a crime also
Well that was our meal of New Years Eve 2018 celebratimg the start of 2019. What a night waiting for the start of 2019. Best part of this place is. Julian the Bus Boy who tried to make the night great for the 4 of us. Regards. Mr. Leonides Rosa-Molinar. 2125630597

The French onion soup is a must. Even if you don’t like onions! It is worth every penny of the $15 price. The duck is amazing. The service is outstanding! A favorite for couples and groups of 4. Make reservations with open table for a smooth night!

Really wanted to love it but like my partner noted - kinda felt like a Disney version of a french restaurant. Waitress was lovely but had too many tables. We love french food and this was fine but not great - especially for the price. Any french bistro would top the quality. Probably works well for NY tourists.

A good find in Hell's Kitchen and perfect for pre-theater.
Lively ambiance with a nice bar.
Food was very good but our waitress was forgetful and slow.
On the other hand, the host was fabulous.

Booked a pre-theater dinner with a friend. With plenty of entrees under $30, this is one of the more "reasonable" places convenient to the theater district. Poulet Roti (roast chicken) was excellent. Liked it enough that we just booked again for a larger family group, again for pre-theater!

Le Prive is a little confusing. It's a French restaurant, clearly, and the menu is a decent selection of Parisian bistro offerings. The food was delicious, although the descriptions of the food didn't quite match what was delivered to the table. Nevertheless, it was delicious.

The steak tartare was delivered to the table with waffle cut chips. I did not taste a smoked paprika aioli. There were no sunchokes or farm egg (or any egg). It had an unadvertised layer of French's crispy fried onions. I suppose that's French since it's French's? I would have asked for the kitchen to hold those things had it been listed on the menu. The escargots was nicely done and not over garlicky. Thank you for that. The Steak Frites was done exactly to order, and the au poivre was nice but a bit wet. The Griot was done perfectly.

The martinis were perfectly made to order, and the option of Chateau Bonadona Ventoux by the glass was nice and the best by-the-glass choice available by leaps and bounds.

The waitstaff is incredibly nice, albeit slightly inattentive.

The decor was industrial exposed ceilings, power boxes, and air ducts meets Cappiello posters meets weirdly out of place prints of what I think was the Black Madonna, which is Polish.

There are two big complaints about Le Prive:

1. If the bathroom doors are going to open outward to the very dimly lit dining room, put the lights in the bathroom on dimmers so the diners aren't blinded when guests open the bathroom door.

2. Having the kitchen staff come and go through the dining room out into the back patio to get random ingredients is fine, but a large and very thin curtain won't stop guests sitting toward the back of the restaurant from getting hypothermia when the door is opening and closing every 5-10 minutes. Also, hot food doesn't stay hot for long with that going on.

Otherwise, a decent experience overall. Great food, good service. Ambiance needs a bit of work.

The food and service were fine, but several things brought our review way down:
1. The Open Table options we had online were either for 1,000 points or 1 free glass of wine per person with the meal. We chose the wine, but our server said the special was only for a glass of dessert wine. When we objected, she reluctantly gave us each a glass of wine with our meal.
2. The room was so poorly lit, and the writing on the menu so small and light, that it was difficult to order.
3. There is a back door that is used frequently by the staff to bring items from storage to the kitchen. Each time they opened the door, we were blasted by freezing air.

Four of us had an early dinner (7 PM). Service was extremely attentive; constant water and fresh bread came to the table. Our very nice server recommended a few favorite dishes, and our hors d'oeuvres (roasted mashed sunchokes with crisps and a Canard et Mousse with pickled onions...and, yes, you HAVE to try it with the onions as it absolutely changes the mousse) were absolutely delicious.

Three of us had the sublime duck on a bed of mashed parsnips; there is no better duck in all of NY.
One had the mussels frites, which were also excellent. Dessert: chocolate mousse, the same as in Paris,
but we had to share at this point because the portions were generous.

This is a must-try new restaurant that won't disappoint!

This place used to be the very so-so 44 1/2. I was hopeful of a better experience at the new place in this location, but... The food was just o.k. Greasy potato chips with tuna tartare? Why? Why not just serve it with a good baguette or croutons? Then, very dry, over-cooked pork for my freind's main dish. My duck was not bad but nothing special (perfectly cooked but sans gout). The tables are uncomfortably tiny--too crowded overall (the waiters kept bumping into us). When we commented on the very dry pork, we were offered a complimentary glass of wine, which was very, very nice. The staff were wonderful--from host to waiter. I highly recommend the service, but, sadly, not the food. There are too many other good places which have opened on 10th Ave in Hell's Kitchen.

It took a few months to try this restaurant because they don't have a menu posted out front like most restaurants in the neighborhood. I wish I had tried it sooner - it was an excellent experience with great food and service. We'll be back for sure.

The mussels were very bland not enough spices. Also the chicken breast was tasteless
All the chef had to do was add some rosemary tyme black pepper and salt to the chicken. The mussels had a decent broth but again not enough spices. It’s a great location with great possibilities if the manager gets his act together with the chef.

Tables are really small. Plus They gave us a table right in front of the main door with wind blowing every time the door opens. Very bad and inconsiderate in this windy and cold weather - ignoring the fact that we have a toddler with us at the table. Service is bad too. They kept coming to ask us if we finished our food... trying to kick us out ASAP when restaurant was basically 80% empty. Very unpleasant experience
