    We sat outside because it was noisy inside even during not too crowded lunch time. The service was very good but the courses came a bit fast. However we were not rushed and spent time talking after the meal. The food was very tasty.

    Classic French bistro in a comfortable, welcoming setting. We usually avoid Mother's Day brunch, but they did it just right! Good food, we weren't rushed.

    My Branzino was super small for $32. Out server basically grew the menu at us and the service continued that way. She was not a happy server.

    Dined this time in a party of 6. As usual, I enjoyed the eggs benedict, as did one other in our group. Another had the pancakes, and others had egg dishes - everyone in agreement: delicious! It’s always noisy, no matter how busy the restaurant, but everyone enjoyed the overall experience. Our service person was very appropriately friendly and efficient. She even took time to take our group photo - much appreciated. Thanks again, L’Express!

    The food is delicious — we had steak frites and the porkchop. Both were first rate, as were the onion soup and the chocolate cale. The service is friendly and efficient, the prices are reasonable (especially for Manhattan) and the atmosphere is lively and congenial. Highly recommended.

    A fav for lunch with friends and family. During the week it is a easy to linger over coffee and enjoy a leisurely lunch feeling just like your in Paris.
