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

The waiter was friendly and great. I felt that the brunch options were pretty limited--there were only like five items. The setting is good, and my friends had a nice time. I'd just like to see more brunch variety and offerings.

The service was quite good. Prompt, effective and discreet. The food was also very good. I had onion soup and a lamb burger. My wife had a beet salad and Salmon Provencal. Everything was well prepared and we'll presented. The problem is the noise. The volume of the music was so intrusive as to make conversation nearly impossible and certainly unpleasant. We asked the volume be turned down and it was. For just a few moments and then cranked up again. Would go back if not for the noise.

To start with there was a mistake in the order (solved after discussion with the waiter), then they did not validate our OpenTable reservation and we ended up as "no show" on the the platform, with no points credited to my account... This was eventually solved a few days later after several messages.
Not a nice experience, although it had started very well.
Otherwise, the food was OK given the price. Not really worth a detour however.

Le Prive never disappoints. I’ve gone many times for drinks and dinner since it I opened about 6 months ago. It’s a quiet restaurant so conversation flows around the table. They have outdoor seating, as an option; it is very romantic!
Dirty Martinis, Salade de Chèvre, and Steak Frites are amoung my favorites.
French food at its best!
Hosts, waiters and bartenders are quite welcoming and attentive.
I keep going back because it’s a guaranteed good time.

The duck, prepared in medallions, was outstanding and memorable. My wife wishes she had ordered it and wants to go back for it, even though she never orders duck. She ordered a nicoise salad. We also had escargot and French onion soup, all of which were good as x well. A bit expensive, and quite noisy, especially up front, but doable in the back. They also have a very nice looking back patio, but it was too cold for that. I suggest they get the outdoor heaters for cool fall and spring days.

Great staff, but it was a little slow (I think someone may have called out sick on this particular night).

Would be nice if they served warm bread. It was cold and in small portions. Had to ask for more when my escargot came out

Just a few little qualms with the place, but overall we were happy.

I had been here once before and had a wonderful time. Then brought my parents for a birthday dinner and the atmosphere had totally changed. They were blasting club music so loud we had to scream at one another to be heard. Waiters were nice enough but even they seemed unhappy with the noise level. It was only 8:30, not late. The food was still good but we were so miserable we left as quickly as possible. I’m writing this because I hope the management takes notice - all of the diners around us looked equally unhappy. Please don’t ruin the charm of a nice French spot in the neighborhood!

Le Prive is a French Cuisine jewel nestled in Hell's Kitchen. It is reasonably priced, the food is spectacular, it has a beautiful outdoor dining area, and it definitely a hot spot. Fabulously unique drinks, a great bar set up for fun and interaction, the menu has something for everyone. I can't wait to go back for my fourth visit! This is the place to be for fun, great drinks and food, and a relaxed night out on the town!

First, after I was seated I ordered a bloody mary. I sat right in front of the bar and saw the ‘bartender’ make my drink. He used is ‘fingers’!! To fish out the garnish for my drink!!!. I was very
Grossed out but, thought if I said anything something worse might happen to my food!
So I did drink my bloody mary but refrained from eating the garnish. As for the main dish I had the ffalel brunch dish. The fries were cold. So overall I did not have the best lunch experience there. .

Hands down the best French restaurant in Hells Kitchen. The staff are amazingly friendly, super attentive and very professional. We’ve eaten here frequently and each time it’s like being welcomed into the home of close family or friends, we love it! The food is always top notch, fresh and fabulous! I’ve tried almost everything on the menu and nothing has disappointed! The duck and chicken liver mousse is sublime. The chocolate mouse is a whole meal in itself, so try (if you can) to keep space for dessert! The cocktails are wonderful and the wine list (while compact) covers all the base. Ultimately, the best thing about Le Prive is the wonderful staff who go out of their way make you feel like the most important person in the room.

My wife and I dined at Le Prive during a short trip to the city and were extremely impressed by the food and the staff. So much so that we have been back for brunch! The setting is very hip and a great place for dinner or just drinks after work. They have a big grand bar and cozy seating. The outdoor patio looks amazing, but it was raining both times we went. Oh well-next time. But the true standout was the food! We split escargot and onion soup - both were as good as it gets. For dinner, i had the fancy French Mac n cheese and my wife had the Salmon. The Mac n cheese was probably the best I’ve ever had and my wife devoured the salmon. Desert consisted of Creme brûlée and beignets. The brûlée was delicious but the beignets were out of this world.

Brunch was also fantastic. Delicious Bellinis paired with crepes and salmon Benedict. I typically am not a fan of smoked salmon, but this dish was so good they may have made me a convert.

Le Prive is a new restaurant with a bright future. I am looking forward to my next visit to NYC so I can get back to my new favorite spot for French bistro cuisine and see what else they have in store.

Fantastic experience at this place every single time! I've dined here on multiple occasions due to the fact that this place is tres chic, gorgeous and it's so fun to just sit there & sip on one of their delicious cocktails or wine and relax!

Food- consistently prepared well and delicious! I love the multilayer dimensional flavor! I have ordered pretty much everything on the menu and it's really tough to pick out my favorite!

Service- SO welcoming, warm, and professional!

The ambience - Stunning! Restaurant is decorated so beautifully! The chandeliers, the color scheme, the paintings, the tall mirrors, the back decor!!

The extra little things - The super cute, approachable staff! So welcoming and really accommodating. Being there multiple times, I really appreciated the fact that they'd randomly top my glass of wine...just because! The bathroom is really pretty! The kitchen is visible and it looks like it's clean!! It's the little things but they count!

I cannot wait to go back there and take more of my friends to try this place! It's an incredible date spot as well as a nice place to hang out with friends! At night, the place comes alive with a little more alcohol, a little more music, and a little more sass!

Pretty noisy place and sat under blowing AC that did not cycle on and off so there was no break from the breeze - we had already moved tables once so we just stuck it out. Steak was delicious but deserts were not good. Chocolate mousse was the texture of gelato ie. kind of hard to dig the spoon in. Creme brûlée was runny and beignets seemed doughy. Probably won’t beheading there again with so many other gems in the neighborhood.

The food was amazing and moderately priced, service was great. Only gripe was that we ordered a $62 bottle if chardonnay. The waiter brought out a different one and suggested we try it. It was Bogle, which is a very nice wine, retails from $8-$15. I assumed it would be cheaper than the one we had ordered. Nope, $62 for a cheap bottle of wine. If I had known that I would have ordered something different.
