About Le Singe Vert

The Marais is reborn in Chelsea at Le Singe Vert, courtesy of the brass coat racks, long wooden bar, distressed mirrors and wicker chairs – all antiques owner Georges Forgeois sourced personally from his travels in France and North Africa.

In addition to the allure of the authentic surroundings, Le Singe Vert boasts a unique duality as both an energetic bistro and romantic hideaway treasured by a variety of guests: Singles grabbing a bite before a night on the town, families relishing a three-course meal and enamored couples enjoying a quiet evening in a secluded corner.

The menu of classic bistro fare appeals to this eclectic crowd, beginning with enticing offerings from the raw bar, to the outstanding steak frites, and of course the decadent chilled pot au chocolat for dessert. Although always festive, “Le Singe” is truly the place to be on holidays, especially for its legendary parties on Halloween, Valentine’s Day and Gay Pride.

Le Singe has specialized in authentic French bistro cuisine for many years. I was pleased to find the food and service is better than ever. Steak and escargot were delicious. Staff was attentive and generous, providing free desert for my birthday guest.

Brunch was delicious, especially eggs florentine, the béarnaise sauce has a hint of rosemary which tastes wonderful under the eggs and spinach. We had a "special " dessert of crepes suzette which was the perfect ending to brunch. Great spot for dinner also.

Always good food and people here.

The “got” in Escargot means you got to order this. The best ever.

Waiters need to be more attentive as we waited for our glass of wine and it arrived halfway through dinner.

The exception here, not the rule.

I have been going to this restaurant for years and have, in the past, liked it very much. This time, the onion soup gratinée was burned on top, the rest of my food was generally mediocre, my scotch and water arrived without water, and the service overall was slow and disorganized. I do not plan to return to this restaurant.

Thank goodness there are still a few places like Le Singe Vert left in NYC. The crowd all seems to have been coming back for years. While hardly a 4 star experience, its good enough for a tuesday night dinner with your friends or spouse.

Le Singe Vert is always a good choice, whether you're meeting friends or just need a hearty bowl of French onion soup. It never disappoints.

We always go to Le Singe Vert for their outstanding escargots, and enjoy their French onion soup and salads as well. We go early because of the noise level, and also enjoy the ambiance, which is very European.

Although it was very busy the night we were there, we never felt rushed. The wait staff was exceptional: friendly and thorough.
The food did not disappoint. Soups,
Salads, and main dishes were tasty and nicely presented. The atmosphere is lively and what you would expect a bistro to be.
It was a perfect intimate birthday celebration.

Good attentive service
Nice quiet brunch spot if u arrive around noon
Scrambled eggs and bacon were very good
Green salad was just ok.
Home Fries were not good at all... everyone left them on their plate... even in other tables. It’s not so complicated to make good potatoes... would love it if u could improve that... would really add a lot.
Thx!

Le Singe Vert has been a regular go to for me, but each time I go it gets a little bit more disappointing. At my most recent visit, I ordered the salade nicoise. This time less salad and cold tuna...which in the past was freshly cooked. The Moroccan meat balls were good as were the escargots. In the past I would say food was very good to excellent, but not sure I will venture back in the near future.

Food was very good. We split a good hanger steak and a great fresh tuna niçoise. The desserts were very good. Crème brûle and chocolaté panaché.
We had a very good glass of speckling rose. The place is very prettty romantic atmosphere. First date. Nice conversation for hours but not a romantic connection. I would go back. It was pricey for me $110 with tip for the two of us. I think a bit of a gem.

Casual local French bistro, and always provides a good average meal. It’s a bit dark at night - toilets are in need of live and attention (smell, best-up and rough) Staff try hard to please and good does not disappoint- for what it is.

Overall a very pleasant dining experience. The ambience is very nice albeit a little old-fashioned. The service was excellent. My only one small complaint was that my entree was a bit cold when it's arrived although it was delicious. I chose not to send it back but otherwise it was very good

Le Singe seems to have dropped “Vert” from its name, so monkeys of all colors can flourish here! The food is stellar, the service fantastic.. and it feels like authentic Paris. Love this neighborhood place.
