Surprisingly wide selection for the three courses of the prix fixe menu. The beet and Caesar salads were tasty. The trout was delicious, the duck was also but did it come with a starch. The strawberries were not overly ripe. The apple tarte was the better choice.

Great place, don't let exterior fool you. Food and service were wonderful my wife had the duck and I had one of the specials of the day venison.. I don't like spicy food and the chef was able to create a unique wine sauce that was not part of the normal fare. It was flavorful and delicious.

We have been dining at Le Rivage for years. Food always reliable. Very good value and selection with their prix fixe menu. Seating very close quarters for lunch for two. Did not appreciate a $3 surcharge to switch from potatoes to another vegetable.

Had dinner here before a Broadway show on Friday night. The service was very good and the atmosphere was nice as well. As you would expect, this isn’t 5-Star dinning in the theatre district p, but it was fine and was a reasonable value. They serve a 3 course prix fixe menu. Good selection and overall decent quality food.

Great classic French food. Service was attentive but not intrusive. They understand that many need to finish in time to get to a show. 3 course prix-fixed pre-theatre menu offered sufficient variety of choices, reasonable price for NYC. They put a candle on my teenager's napoleon dessert but didn't embarrass her by singing, which was appropriate for us. The beet mango salad, trout and chocolate mousse were exceptional. Caesar salad was okay, coq au vin was melt in your mouth with good flavors and napoleon was terrific.

 (Chicago)·Dined on November 10, 2017

Our meal at Le Rivage was delicious and the pre-show prix fixe menu was quite extensive and varied. The space is small but nicely decorated. Tables are fairly close together, but in our case, it was a plus since we struck up a lively Broadway play conversation with the folks at the next table. We reserved 5PM to ensure we were in and being served before the horde of diners came in at 5:30. It worked well. We highly recommend Le Rivage, and made a note to come back next time we are in NYC.

We selected Le Rivage because it wasn't known to us, and because one of our party is very fond of French food. It was an excellent choice. All our dishes proved classic and perfectly made, and service was very good. I hope to revisit the restaurant in the future.

The STAHhhhhhh of Restaurant Row! We like to avoid the pre-theater crowds since we are NYers. So we love to come in later and enjoy our favorite famous dish the french onion soup burger!!! But this time around they had bone marrow. Get ready for a mini dinosaur to come to your table! So I️ had my meat fill with that and went with Caesar salad. I️ love this one because there aren’t anchovies in it, which they are quick to tell you if you have any reservations about it. My BF amazingly double downed on the meat and went filet. I️ admit to having a bite. Cooked to pretty pink perfection. If you’re in the area... don’t miss it;)

Foos and service were good except that the waiter was not clear bout the choices for water.
We thought we were getting tap water, and were charged for Evian Spring Water.
It cost $14 we didn't anticipate.
Annoying, but not enough to ruin our appreciation of the good food

Ended up here by default since Saju Bistro was booked. Everything from the French onion soup, with its thin veneer of cheese and little onion, to the beef boulonnaise, with its sub-par quality meat and, finally, to the peach melba, which was dreadful made this a one-and-done. At least the Broadway show was good.
