French Onion Soup Burger
NYC Wine & Food Festival Burger Bash's ONLY Two~Time Judges Choice Winner
French Onion Soup
The restaurant has an excellent and cozy atmosphere. It has live piano music that highlights the cozy atmosphere. The quality of the attention is outstanding, especially to highlight Diego's service. I recommend the escargots they are delicious. Although I must admit that everything I tried was excellent. Good value for money
Great service and delicious food. Can’t ask for more than that!
Lovely place due try the duck. Service was excellent, there was a live jazz band.
I love the food here. Great French food. This time I had the moules Frits but I also love the trout almandine and duck le oranges.
Le Rivage is an absolute gem. We’ve been here twice now, and each time, we’ve had excellent food coupled with the most wonderful waitstaff that New York has to offer. 10/10 would recommend!
We went to Le Rivage for my mother's birthday after looking at the reviews and it was definitely one of the best decisions we made during our trip to NY. The service was amazing and the food just spectacular.
Great food, live music, and ambiance
Merci beaucoup for the review
Apparently the bartender quit and the manager had to do everything. That's why the service was so bad. But I am guessing they are lucky to have Servers so. The muscles and the fries are delicious
Wonderful supper with family. Service was outstanding & the food was delicious. We love this restaurant because of the attention to the details. The ambiance is just right, the presentation of the food is so clean, it just looks like it will be delicious & the flavors are there to prove it. Thanks for a great evening!
Enjoyed the convivial and familial atmosphere of a lovely Bastille day meal of hearty Coq au Vin and quiche Lorraine - with a husky throated singer doing justice to “La Vie en Rose”.
Genuinely poor service. Bus staff was good, but it seemed like the server forgot he was serving our table for most of the night, and it took 8-10 minutes and multiple attempts to get his attention on at least 3 occasions during the night. I'm not sure I'd recommend. The service was just so poor.
Food was fabulous. We had trout and salmon, some drinks and dessert.
Amazing food and music!! Would definitely come back!
Every thing was amazing besides the food. The snails were not as juicy as snails should be they were dry. But the service made up for it.
Food was great, piano music was a plus. They went out of their way to celebrate my wife's birthday.
The service was exceptional and the food was great. The music was very enjoyable.
Food was outstanding. Professional staff understood our dining requirements (I.e. not in a hurry). Wine pairing suggestions on target. Discrete service. Little things made the difference (I.e. water glass never empty, food came out hot). Definitely a repeat place.
Nice French atmosphere (if eating indoors). Large portions of very good food. Save space for the genuine Tarte Tatin -- my favorite dessert.
Been coming here for many years. We haven’t been disappointed prices are fair and the food is amazing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
lovely French restaurant with traditional dishes. Jazz trio was a nice addition.
Always a ‘must’ when visiting NYC for the best steak au poivre in the City! Charming, intimate ambiance transports you to France.
Really enjoy the live jazz which always has a mix of stellar players but last night was the first hearing a wonderful pianist/singer Barrett Taylor whose mix of Broadway and classics added perfectly to the ambiance. Great, attentive service. Merci!
Terrific meal. Trout Almondine was perfect. Love this place!
This place is great. The French onion soup, steak frites and beef bourginone were to die for! Plus, the ambience on a Saturday night on restaurant row with live jazz music playing was so fun!
Ate outside and it was most pleasant. Outside was on the southern side of west 46th st.’s
restaurant row. Very little auto traffic-lots of people watching. Food and service was very good. Staff happy to have you there.
I meet with old friends at Le Rivage. This is the second time we have gotten together here. We were so happy to learn they came out of the pandemic and are open for business! They still had the 3 course prix fix for $35.00 which is a wonderful bargain. The food is delicious and the service very good.
Just wonderful with an excellent menu. I chose to eat inside which was very comfortable while there were more people eating outside.
The service was very good. My husband and I ordered the escargot and baked seafood crepe. Both were divine. The snails were very meaty! The crepe... Oh my God. For our main courses, my husband got the boeuf bourguignon and it was very delicious. The beef practically melted in my mouth. I got the Canard à L’Orange and it was OK. As someone who LOVES orange, the orange flavor was overpowering. I will have to revisit on a cooler day because I really wanted to try the French onion soup but it was a hot evening and not cool enough (for my preference) inside to try it.
I recommend Le Rivage for all good reasons: the service was perfect. The cuisine was amazing, and the choice was great. Food and wine were delicious.
The food was great as well as the service. There a few authentic French dishes on the menu. Friday through Sunday live jazz.
We try to come here on every visit to New York. And to celebrate New York reopening, we booked our first dinner here. How lucky to come on a night of live music at the piano. The food was just as good as we remembered, and the service outstanding.
Fabulous dinner, superb service -- thank you! We look forward to returning soon.
Dinner before a play! A sign that life is returning to normal!!!
Love the house made Sangria with our meal
Excellent Traditional French Cuisine & the star of the show: French Onion Soup Burger. No other burger comes close.
I have dined at Le Rivage for probably 10 years, every time I am in the city.
I have brought many friends here and we have always enjoyed the experience.
The food is always wonderful. My friend loves the frog legs. I have tried most everything on the menu at least once, and have never been disappointed.
This year they have outdoor dining. We dined in the back room, which is my personal favorite. Don't miss dessert, the peach melba is wonderful.
Le Rivage is a gem.
Excellent and attentive customer service. Outstanding cuisine selections and very tasteful. Reminds me of Paris. Jazz performances were very good.
I’m so glad this restaurant made it through COVID-19. Traditional French bistro fare perfectly prepared. I had delicious escargot and my friend opted for moules farci, and we both had the trout almandine. For dessert creme caramel and chocolate mousse. Wonderful hospitality and service. Looking forward to my next visit!
I am staying at a hotel nearby so I decided to come here because I was thinking of ordering the onion burgers. Instead I had the squash soup special as an appetizer. It was just okay. For dinner I had the calves liver special which was very good. Overall a pleasant experience with what I believe to be consistently reliable food.
Friendly, professional service. Excellent French food.
We had a lovely outdoor dining experience at Le Rivage. We were worried about the temperature, so the staff installed a heater on the spot in case we were chilly. Delicious meal (marrow bone, seafood crepe, escargot, duck a l'orange) with everyone trying so hard to help get this city and it's vibrant restaurant scene moving again. Thank you.
