Service was great, French onion and soup of the day were great, but burgers were lacking. Meat not seasoned at all unfortunately.
Love L’Express! We go there as often as possible!
Great V day dinner
Had a wonderful dining experience at L’Express. It gives you the feel of being in France with the close tables, the wonderful food, and invites you to be friendly to the people at the table next to you (like in Paris).
The only thing about our meal that I wish was better was that they were short staffed on Valentines day and our waitress was definitely overwhelmed. Otherwise, a wonderful experience and great food.
Couldn’t have had a more delightful and delicious Valentines Dinner!
LOVE THIS PLACE and always get the steak tartare entree! YUMMMMMM
Duck breast was on the menu. I ordered it...a duck leg was served. I should have sent it back, but it was a birthday and I didn’t want to make a fuss. My husband ordered steak tartar entree. It was the size of an appetizer.
The food was not good. I wouldn’t return or recommend it.
Our waitress was very nice, but she’s not the cook.
This is a perfect place for a drink after work with friends
Excellent service, very good food and ambiance, we could use a bit more light as diners were forced to use their cell phones to read the menu.
The food is always fantastic. But it was so noisy and chaotic that we couldn't hear our friends and couldn't have a good conversation.
The salmon burger special was very poor. The waiter was nice and attentive, but he spilled some of the wine when he poured it in my glass.
We have been coming here for years and were bummed how long our food took with an early 6pm seating and our order in before the dining room got busier.
3 of us got the salmon which was anything but hot. I would call it less than tepid - brother asked for green beans in place of rice, got rice - even though he agreed to an up charge - cousin got a sinewy piece of steak with his steak frites - just not a great experience and we bought expensive wine....we will probably not go back now since so many other options in our neighborhood and L’Express entrées are still approx $30.
Salmon fish is super delicious, Can't wait to go back.
L’ Express at 240 Park Avenue South, NY.
Steamed Broccolini, Broccolini Soup, Escargots Bourguignonne, Grilled Organic Scottish Salmon.
Nice atmosphere. Good food and wine. Great for dinner with friends or date.
Solid neighborhood bistro with something for everyone. Been my standby for many years. It hasn’t disappointed me yet!
Family get together. Really perfect place
As usual, we were extremely happy with our experience. Always great service, food and wine
It's always a great experience to dine at L'Express! Food and service is consistently great and the place is always happening and fun.
Just fun. Great menu and food.
great place for groups and date night out. nice atmosphere but the noise level can get loud.
had the duck confit with frites and a house salad which was very tasty and well prepared .
Service very good. Food quality was disappointing. Steak frite was average at best - the hangar steak was not properly butchered. The lobster bisque was inedible - my wife returned it.
Went here for Christmas lunch with the family. The family part wasn't so great, but the service was. The waiter was really, really great. Bilingual, to boot.
Fabulous food & ambience, and great positive service team!
L’express is consistent. One of my favorite restaurants. The food and service are terrific. It was very busy but not usual for a Friday night and a few days before the Holidays. However, the service and food are consistent no matter how busy it is. I had the skirt steak and my partner the trout. Both delicious!!
We were there on a Friday night and seated in the bar area which was VERY LOUD. The food and service were very good but the whole experience was not as good as usual because of the noise level. I will definitely go back but ask to sit away from the bar.
Of course we love you darlings. Food great, staff nice, busy busy fun environment!
been here many, many times....very consistent....food is good...service is good....would feel better about this place though if there was a tad more space between tables....would lend itself to more intimate conversations...
Wonderful food and energetic ambiance.
Delicious food, kind staff , a great evening out
Thanks . Great meal!
I ordered the salmon scramble which I had to sent back b/c they left off the creme fraiche, an essential ingredient.
My friend ordered the "spinach, avocado and tomato" omelette. It came with red and green peppers. She sent it back and then they sent it back to her, claiming the "guacamole" has peppers in it. Guacamole does not equal avocado, and what guacamole has green and red peppers in it anyway?
She then changed her order to eggs over easy. They came scrambled.
We gave up.
Very cute spot for a date. Food and wine were very good. Unfortunately we were seated with our backs in the bar area which meant a lot of jostling. It’s great that it was very busy when we were there, but that also meant that the noise level was high (no soft surfaces to absorb sound) and our waitress was pretty harried.
It was packed and we were seated right away at a comfortable table. They didn’t try to jam us in. Service was very good and loved the food as usual
Great food, service and ambiance. A French flare in NYC!
When it came time to split the bill on two credit cards — they put the entire 20% tip (which is automatically added for larger parties, not that we were told) on one of the credit cards — so if the people signing had not compared their bills, we would have tipped on half of the bill again. Not cool. Unremarkable food. Will not return.
The only thing better than the service was the food. Fantastic from beginning to end. Thank you
Yes, but the service is extremely slow. We waited over 30 minutes for our drinks at 5:30PM.
A local place for lunch...very good menu. Food was average, but for a quick lunch well worth it.
Service was a bit spotty. Our monkfish was overlooked, very dry. The noise level was awful. In addition, there was a woman at a neighboring table with a piercingly loud laugh and a screeching baby somewhere in the restaurant. We couldn't wait to get out of the restaurant. Very stressful meal..
Chic and casual restaurant- great service for 8 of our guests!
