I like this place a lot. The food is good and not TOO expensive, and the waitstaff are friendly, helpful, and efficient. Interesting neighborhood, too, if you feel like walking around.

Le prive is always my go to for a delicious dinner or brunch. The staff here is always lovely and very accommodating. The food is always to die for as well. The steak frites is the best. Every time I bring a family member or friend here for dinner, they always are raving about it. Thank you!

A charming and authentic French restaurant. I especially enjoyed the duck entree and the crème brûlée. Our waiter suggested perfect wine pairings.

We opted to sit at the bar before going to see Springsteen on Broadway. This was our first time back to Le Prive in two years and it is as good as it has ever been. The pate was excellent, and my wife thoroughly enjoyed her salad and grilled branzino. We enjoyed watching Matthew the bartender mixing up a variety of unique libations and are looking forward to our next trip back to this gem between 44th and 45th on 10th Avenue.

We went to Le Prive for Father’s Day and split the $45 St Germaine spritzer in a carafe. I would have preferred if it was stronger. The food was excellent! I had the Croque Madame and my date had the omelette. We tasted each other’s dishes and both agreed that they were stellar. They came with a side salad. I would definitely recommend Le Prive for the brunch. Next time I go, I’ll be trying some more items off the food menu.

The four of us had a 1:15 reservation and we were seated quickly. Unfortunately they were short staffed and the service was horrible. The lamb sausage is very gamey. The Croque Monseur was painfully cheesy like an over stuffed grilled cheese with far too little ham. The hamburger was good and prepared well. The chicken salad niçoise was good but small. The large restaurant WA playing music that was painfully loud, matching a large group.

Merci! To Matt, Enzo and Justice and the back of the house for helping to make our graduation celebration so memorable. We booked a party for nine in the "garden" to celebrate a special occasion with family. Overall, we were very pleased. The pluses: the outdoor space was commodious; we could move around and mingle with one another. The team was very helpful: they turned off the air conditioner to eliminate the noise of the machinery next to our outdoor tables, they provided candles and small glasses for flowers, they set the tables nicely, they were helpful with our requests and they provided very attentive service throughout the evening. The food was excellent and the portions not skimpy. The fish, chicken, duck were all prepared very nicely, served hot and at a good pace. Everyone was happy with what they ordered. The main minus for the nice people at Le Prive: if you're going to have a party in the back, clean it up first. . . and get some flowers for the tables. Thank you again.

Had a wonderful experience. The food and the service was truly impeccable. Our waiter made sure we had everything and constantly checked on us. The menu had a very solid selection of food - from seafood to meats and salads. We had the bouillabaisse which was fantastic and the burger which was cooked perfectly and the aioli incredible. I would 100% recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great French food and a lovely night out.

The service at this place was really great, better even than the food, which was very nice. We sat in the concrete garden out back, under a canopy and surrounded by walls, so the noise level was moderate without street sounds. The escargots were great, not even a little rubbery. The only disappointment was the beignets, which had a very nice taste but the consistency of hockey pucks where I expected lightness. Never mind -- I'd gladly eat there again.

Le Privé is simply the best. I recently moved to the neighborhood and this has become my go-to spot and I love bringing new friends and family here every weekend! The service is always top notch but above all they are consistent in the delivery of their high quality food. The drinks are well balanced and the ambience is bright and lovely, good for friends, family, and even a special romantic date. The chef never disappoint and my favorites are the croque madame and croque monsieur, both versions are the best I have ever tasted in my life and I am a huge fan of french food. Most recently, I took friends who ventured into the escargot and lamb sausage and both were supremely scrumptious. Order the shaken coffee (off the menu) for a little touch of a greek frappe and you will feel that you are overlooking the mediterranean coast! I cannot compliment this place enough!

We found our new favorite French restaurant! Food was great and decently priced. We ordered the escargot and steak tartare for starters. I had the filet mignon and the wife had the duck with some amazing purée thing that was just delicious. The staff was so kind and our server Eunice was so sweet and attentive. There’s very few places that make you feel special and appreciated, and Le Prive was one of those places. We will be back!
