    We booked counter service which is at the bar. Our place settings were already there when we arrived. The service from the bartender was great. We ordered the dinner prix fix. The escargot was amazing. The Cordon Blue and Beef Bourgogne were well portioned and delicious. Bread pudding and macaroons were the perfect desserts to end the meal. Note- the hostess that answered our call regarding counter seating vs outside seating was extremely helpful and gave some great insight.

    The food was fantastic. We had the French onion soup and the bisque. Both were delicious. The liver and onions was great. My wife had the ratatouille and loved it. The crème brûlée is the best we've ever had. We'd definitely come back.

    This is a pre-theater gem! The food is delicious, the atmosphere is great, and service was friendly, attentive, and incredibly organized. Due to a parking mishap we arrived 30 minutes late for our reservation and they still got us out in time for our show.

    Food was good. Very overpriced though. Not sure if we will go back again.

    Le RivageResponded 4 days agoUnfortunately French restaurants are more expensive because they are heavily protein and alcohol based especially classic cooking. Pasta, vegetables cheap proteins although more expensive are on a less steep increase. Even at our prices we are just covering costs. We have always been reputable for being affordable, this is just the new normal.

    We were welcomed with wonder French generosity. We had a schedule to meet (we had tickets to an early matinee on Broadway) and they made sure our food came out in a timely manner. Food was done very nicely.

    Fancier than a Bistro, but still relaxed. The food was fantastic! Exactly the flavors we love in French food. Portions were enough without making us feel overstuffed. Servers were very attentive and the atmosphere was wonderful. I felt we got our money's worth, as it felt special.

    Greeted by the maitre'd at the door with ,"Happy Birthday, Dr. McSparren", I was set for a wonderful evening, which unfolded over the nest 90 minutes. Food and service were outstanding. I was serenaded by three waiters singing "Happy Birthday" over my vanilla ice cream. How special, and I think 89 is such a non-number> My sendoff was a special hug by the same maitre'd. I left with a special glow. I know where you are. Thanks, CMcS

They also have a piano player and a singer who is lovely you don’t really see that anymore. It was very nice evening and I will go back.

Awesome selections. Everything was good and the butternut squash soup perfect. I will plan on returning soon.

    My dad and I went to Le Rivage last year for my birthday dinner, so when we knew we were coming to NYC again for my birthday, I just had to have dinner there again. The food was excellent! We sat outside this year as it was the only option available when I made reservations. It was warm out, so that was great! It was a little annoying having all the traffic and cars beeping their horns while trying to enjoy dinner. The service was great, however, it was a little hurried. Not a huge issue as we were headed to a show, but our reservation was for 5:45 and the show wasn’t until 8:00. We were never asked if we’d like additional cocktails/drinks beyond the initial order. Overall great experience and we will definitely return. Just a little chaotic this time. Hopefully next time we can get a reservation inside again.

    A classic old style New York (or French if you stretch your imagination) restaurant, actually the kind of place we love. Delicious standard menu with lots of good choices. Nothing fancy, but friendly service, crisp clean tables, noise level good for conversation. Highly recommend, we will eat there again.

    The food prices went up From $42 to $46 since I made the reservation. Two of us ordered the pork chops, large but very fatty! The Ratatouille was sauce & sliced vegetables, not a good choice. The sea food bisque soup was watery & very disappointing. There was four of us for lunch. The desserts were all tasty.Bottom line very expensive not worth the high prices, Sorry!
