Everything from food to service, wine and jazz trio, and intangibles was just about perfect with one rather insignificant exception. I’ve had equal, but not better mussels; they were served in white wine sauce with shallots and my duck l’orange was to die—-it really was the best I’ve ever had. The portion was enormous and the doneness and flavor were ideal. After a slightly slow start, the service was exceptional too. If my friend or I took a sip of water, it was filled at the blink of an eye and there were no disconnects like you see at so many (even good) places these days. The band was an unexpected treat too. Three world class players doing their thing without making conversation impossible. This is a gem on a street with many imposters. Run!

Wow! Was not expecting the amazing experience that we had. Food was fantastic, host made us feel welcomed, service was on point and to top it all off the live jazz band gave a great ambience.

What a lovely old-school NYC French restaurant. The cocktails and food were classically prepared. They have a piano player and the atmosphere was delightful. I highly recommend this gem in the theatre district. I’ll be back for sure, many times. C'était fantastique!

We had a delightful meal outside on the "patio" (really the closed-off street). The food was delicious -- traditional French dishes right. The service was personal and we felt like we were welcomed into the family!

In NY for Springsteen on Broadway, searched for a place close to the theater and settled on Le Rivage. Definitely hit a home run. French countryside motif, red brick and white linen. Started with cocktails, perfect and delicious. Shared seafood crepe for appetizer, nice portion and creamy, steamy delight. Duck for me, crispy skin just how I like it. Trout Almondine for the wife and she adored it. Staff was prompt and attentive. Perfect start to a great night.

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

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

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.
