Out of all the restaurants to choose from in New York, this wouldn't be at the top of my list again. It's a cute place, but the Prix Fixe menu doesn't have remarkable offerings.

We have been to this charming French restaurant a few times. It is always a pleasure. The food is so delicious and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The price fixed menu is beyond a bargain. Already looking
forward to our next visit!

When French cuisine comes to mind, this IS the place to go in the Theatre District. Their pre=performance three course dinner is simply VERY impressive. Choices for all seasoned palates. Service very proferssional, thank you Ellen, wish we could have said good night, well paced and proper portions to thoroughly enjoy each course. Shall we go back...absolutely YES. Even with ALL the choices in NYC, this was an experience to remember...and repeat. Thank you team Le Rivage. Bravo et merci beaucoup.

I would not make a reservation with open table for this restaurant. Apparently they did not know about our reservation through open table even though we had a confirmation and showed it. The hostess looked at me like I had two heads they finally did seat us as though doing us a favor. However that put a little damper on things. But the food and service was very good. Just suggest you call for a reservation instead of the convenience of open table.

We had a wonderful meal and time at Le Rivage. There was one error with our order (an over cooked filet mignon), but our waiter spotted the issue immediately and addressed it with great attention. This wonderful service was further highlighted by the fact that the filet was for a 12-year old. The host also came over to ensure all was good and spoke directly with our daughter to ensure she was satisfied with the newly delivered filet. They also then treated us to additional desserts as a kind gesture. Wonderful service and attention to their patrons. Will definitely go back.

This is a customer friendly, lovely French restaurant that has excellent service, an attentive staff and serves nicely prepared meals. The three of us all ordered different entrees and all three were delicious. The wine list is excellent and cocktails were nicely done.
The location is perfect for anyone looking for pre theater or post theater dining.

Overall the food exceeded my expectations. I wouldn’t generally expect the food to be outstanding in Times Square. For the area, the price is also reasonable. Both my husband’s steak and my salmon were well prepared and cooked. The options were very good for a prix fix as well. That being said, the decor is very tired, verging on dingy and my dinner came with a short dark hair on the plate. They replaced the food onto a clean plate but it was clearly still the same food....

Very crowded Saturday at 5pm. Table was VERY close to neighbor (4 top split in two). Should be a table for 4 only.

A quaint French restaurant on restaurant row NYC. I'm not a French food expert but my sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals. They have a live jazz band on Mondays & Thursdays evenings, I think they start at 7:30. It's a prefixe menu, 3 courses $45 with a few additional items for a $10 surcharge. I even tried escargot for the 1st time and it was delicious. If you want to end your meal with a truly old world French flair order an absinthe.

Fabulous Food and Great Service! I highly recommend this place to my family and friends! The waiters/waitresses are warm and friendly. I love the Maitre D. You are greeted with a warm smile. Being hearing impaired I am given a table where I can hear other people at my table.

Definitely a pre-theater place. They get you in and out on time. We didn't feel rushed. But place is very busy and small so wait staff is running around and you feel them whizzing to & fro.

The service was excellent and very attentive. However the food was just so-so. I found the baked mussels to be chewy and lacking in flavor, and the duck a l'orange was dry. The potato leek soup was OK. We did enjoy the beef bourguignon and the desserts. Not planning to return.

We tried this restaurant as a pre-theater option and just loved it. It offered exceptional value for a very reasonable price (three course pre-fixe). We found it delightful and would definitely dine there again. Service was prompt, courteous, and professional and the menu options were quite extensive for a pre-fixe. Our meal was well-prepared and tasty. Highly recommend.

Lovely pre-theater dinner choices from a large menu. Friend and I had delicious escargot for appetizer - enjoyed mopping up the juices with bread. Duck ala Orange and Lamb chops for entree - both prepared excellently, as requested. Creme Brulee and Flan for dessert - luscious! Highly recommend Le Rivage!

The service was outstanding and they even prepared candles for the dessert as it was our anniversary! The pre fixe menu had a lot of options and reasonable price.
