Great pre-theater spot, the food was absolutely delicious. Best steak for steak frites I’ve ever had. Only downside is the tables are ridiculously small - bistro tables if even that big.

The food was great but the service was even better. I took a client here for lunch along with my boss. Our server, (sorry I can't remember his name) was fantastic!!! He was very attentive and our water was never empty. We usually take our clients to 44 & X but I will be coming back to take more clients here.

Charming French place away from the bustle of TImes Square but good for pre or post theater. Beignets are superb! Try the Moules Frites.

My boyfriend and I came in for a late dinner after seeing a show and were very pleased with our choice! The food was great, the service was quick (in fact, my only piece of constructive criticism is that we did feel a bit rushed at times, though I suppose that’s to be expected when you come in so close to closing time), and the place wasn’t too packed. Will definitely consider this a go-to for excellent French dining.

I really didnt like the playlist which had pop songs during the dinner. When I was having some bread before the appetizer’s served, the french music was perfect. However, as the playlist somewhat changed, the atmosphere drastically went to cheesy. PLEASE KEEP THE FRENCH MUSIC ALL THE TIME.

Service was nice but food is unexceptional. The griot of pork was overly dry and the steak had too much gristle. Only saving grace was a tasty frisée salad. Wine was only decent.

Good food and service. We were in a group of six, and the restaurant staff let us sit for quite a few hours and talk. Two negatives- restaurant was long and narrow, and in a table for six, we felt a bit squished. Also, music was very loud, and as the night wore on, and fewer people were in the restaurant, the noise level was deafening, making conversation extremely difficult among our group.

New restaurant at an old spot--and a great improvement. Nice French food, still working out the details. Needs a few more lightbulbs in the chandeliers for the dark corners.

Food was delicious and a good value. They were nice enough to give a glass of casis at the end of our meal complimentary. Only issue was noise level and was hard to have a quiet meal. I would go again.

Relatively new spot in Hell’s Kitchen with an attractive quasi French Bistro menu, truly kind and accommodating staff, creative bar and drink selections and a few rough spots to iron out. The food was a bit uneven with high marks for duck, branzino , side dishes and desserts - and questions for the pork . Atmosphere is an area of concern and could be quickly and easily improved by addressing the lack of wind barriers at the front and back doors. The staff need to run outside to the basement fairly regularly and great gusts of cold air accompany every trip. Also, the noise was mostly at level that required yelling to be heard by your fellow diners - but not so in the very front of the restaurant. So, these sound issues could be evened out. This also applies to the lighting. The back is far too dark to read a menu or even see and appreciate your food. Yes, everybody has cellphones with flashlights but you can’t quite even see your food- which happens to look lovely. I would definitely return to sample the salmon and steak but would prefer to sit only in the front for now.

For our early pre-theater dinner, we had roast chicken breast that was moist & flavorful & magret du canard, done medium rare & tender. Paired with glasses of Chateau Bonadona, a Ventoux that complimented our entrees. A good choice close to theaters.

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.
