Been going to Le Rivage for at least 45 years and it neve disappoints. The food is as good now, as it was back then. The restaurant is usually quiet, which is good for conversation. Excellent service, also.,
Great food and ambiance. Waiter was off his game though - thank goodness two other waiters noticed and pitched in to cover for him. It takes a village!
Good food, quick attentive service. A little noisy and cramped
We specifically wanted to try the onion soup burgers and were not disappointed. Great fries, too. Going to return to explore the brunch menu.
This is a very warm and charming restaurant with wonderful food and at a good price.
Great for pre- theatre
Price fix menu is a great value
Service is excellent-they ask if you are going
to see a show
Have been there many times and always enjoyed
First time there, and the food and staff where amazing! I can't wait to go again.
Muscles were rubbery to the point of being inedible. Trout almondine was tasteless. Liver was tough
Accommodated our need to arrive after our reservation time, offered a varied and interesting menu, and did not rush us through our meal.
Very convenient for theater goers.
A great pre-theater dining option - generous portions of tasty classic French dishes.
As always, the cuisine at "Le Rivage" was outstanding. I highly recommend the "Gambas Le Rivage".
Salad had too much dressing and frisee was in huge bunches. Dinners were overcooked (suspect they were microwaved). Dessert was good ( flan). Way overpriced for quality of meal. Disappointing.
Our friends, who dine out in New York City at least once a week, agreed with us that the food was fabulous!
The service is friendly, professional and efficient in serving to enable us to easily make our theater time
We will go back
Good pre-theatre meal in the heart of NYC.
Old school little bistro. Classical French menu. Fresh, well prepared. The trout almondine was tasty & satisfying. Beet salad was refreshing. Accommodated special requests but limited gluten-free offering. Would return to try other plates. Recommended.
Excellent food. Great theatre pre-fix & short walking distance to Broadway shows
Very disappointed with salmon dish. No real flavor. My partner got sick, most likely from lobster/seafood bisque. "Double"chocolate ice cream had the same flavor as plain chocolate ice cream.
Otherwise, the trout was quite good, fingerling potatoes were okay, and green vegetables were okay.
Great ambiance and fabulous service.
Excellent dinner at Le Rivage. I took my wife for our anniversary and we enjoyed a great evening. Try the seafood crepes and the mushroom risotto - both out of this world. Service was excellent and we can't wait to go back.
Went to Le Rivage to try their French Onion Burger. It was excellent. Moist, flavorful and properly cooked. Plentiful onions and cheese. English muffin was crisp and did not disintegrate in your hands. Fries, however, were a disappointment. I expected fresh cut but these were standard, frozen fries. My daughter ordered a traditional French meal and she felt it was excellent.
Ambience is great. Cozy and charming. The restaurant is located on Restaurant row on 46th street which gave it an interesting touch.
As always, food and service good to excellent. Reasonably priced pre-theater prix fixe menu
Great pre-theatre restaurant. Very good food. One problem was almost all of the prix fixe entrees contained mushrooms which my companion does not like. She ordered the French onion soup burger and was happy with it.
Four of us who love French cuisine made what will be the first of many visits before a 7 pm theater date. Although we arrived almost 15 minutes late (our miscalculation), we were accommodated with a lovely table at the far back of the restaurant, where the waitstaff worked enthusiastically with the kitchen to make sure our selections appeared promptly so we could still be on time. Our meals were all delightful without a hint of feeling rushed. Our food was fresh and delicious, prepared and served with care. We arrived at the theater with time to spare.
Wonderful dining experience and the only drawback was that we were seated at a table along the wall and the tables are very close together so you can't help but overhear conversations at the tables next to you.
Great to eat at before a show. They have a prix fix menu and will get you out in time for your show.
We made 5:00 reservations so we could catch a 7:00 play. The setting is very nice and warm. We looked at the menu and the only choice we had was prix fix for $43. (If you go online, you'll see that the price is $39. After 7:30, it's $29. ) So they're raising their prices for theatre-goers. This was a surprise, because I had looked at the menu on line and I knew there was a la carte. I subsequently found out that the the prix fix is until 7:30 after which the a la carte kicks in. This is apparently the restaurant's way of streamlining dinner to accommodate theatre goers. The effect is to feel like being on an assembly line. The food was decent, but totally lacking in visual appeal. The chicken was okay as long as you ate the dark meat. The white meat was dry, and the chicken had undoubtedly been pre-cooked and simply heated in an oven. Dessert was advertised as "local fruit" which turned out to be just strawberries, rather than a mix, and arrived in a small bowl with sauce anglaise. Period. The kind of dessert you'd expect at Denny's, or some other cheap restaurant. So we were stuck with a 3-course dinner, which we rarely order, for $43 each, all for mediocre food. We won't be returning.
A fabulous gem hidden in busy NY! We always have a great meal there whenever we visit. Delicious food, excellent service, and a fantastic menu to choose from.
I took my friend from WI to Le Rivage this past weekend for post-theatre dinner. We loved the authentic French cuisine, the attentive service and quick delivery of our order inspite of it being so crowded on a Saturday night. The Manager made sure we got what we wanted. It could be noisy when it’s full to capacity which is to be expected. It is pricey, yet reasonable for pre fixe, pre-post theatre meals; located at Restaurant Row, it’s a short walking distance to the theatres of Times Square.
Perfect spot for a pre-theater dinner.
Had the French onion soup, filet with peppercorn sauce, fries and green beans, and it was great. My wife's strip steak with wine sauce was not as great, and no choice of chardonnay's, but service was great. Would definitely eat there again pre-theatre. Arrived 5:16 and out at 7.
Good food, attentive service,good for pre theater dinner
Always a pleasure visiting this restaurant. One of the Best!
This was our second time here and this time we came with friends from Arizona. As usual the food and service were excellent. My friends can't wait to come back again the next time they visit New York. Cheers to everyone at Le Rivage
This restaurant is a good bet for pre or post theatre.
Great for when you are going to see a show!
Excellent Food, Service and a very nice place to eat with realistic French Cuisine.
My boeuf bourguignon was fine; my companion's quiche was a little strange - she questioned the egg content because the quiche seemed overly starchy. Service was not as efficient as usual, perhaps because it was a busy matinee Wednesday lunch.
Went for pre-theater and it was fantastic. Great food. Large portions and our server Jose was great.
The food is terrific and the price is right. The atmosphere lends it self to long conversations and relaxing times. You can actually hear the company you are with
Excellent as usual!!!! Food is always awesome!!!!
Have been here many times, typically before or after the theatre.
