Reliable. I love their salads and fries
Went there for NYC RW and was expecting to have the pre fix menu but apparently they don’t offer on weekends. Service wasn’t great we waited upward of 20 min to be checked on before receiving bill.
Good choice for French food during restaurant week.
Service was slow
It was great food. Just wished NYC restaurant week included the weekends.
Food was terrible. L’Express should close down.
The food is always wonderful. Makes us feel like we are in Paris!
The food was amazing and the service was phenomenal , the noise level is extremely disturbing… not a good place for a date or deep conversation..
Feels like eating in a school cafeteria
The food was fine. Solid bistro food. The service was inattentive to say the least.
Very accommodating once they saw our immunocompromised child. Sat us in a corner avoiding most patrons. Great they had air purifiers and were very perceptive of our needs as a large party with children during a pandemic. Wonderful experience!
Always love lexpress
Great meal at L’Express. The wheat berry salad was delicious. The salmon was terrific. And the profiteroles were amazing. Outstanding service and reasonable prices, too. No Julia Roberts sighting this time, but still a fun experience.
Consistent reliable local spot. Great for the neighborhood!
Mateo was a wonderful host, and made some great wine recommendations. The steak au poivre was delicious and flavorful, with a savory peppercorn sauce. The steak was cooked medium rare, exactly as I had requested. This place holds a special place in my heart. I will certainly return to enjoy more of the great food and wonderful hospitality.
Disappointing compared to other NYC French restaurants and bars. No soul, cold atmosphere. Not so friendly staff.
Love going to this restaurant for a meal!
Loved everything about this restaurant. The menu was interesting, the cheese appetizer was excellent and our entrée salads were great as well. The server was knowledgeable and friendly and our water glasses were frequently filled, even though the restaurant was pretty busy.
We would definitely go back.
My favorite restaurant for lunch and dinner! Never disappointed.
Food and service were both great. I had the Pork Schnitzel.
Fairly priced, nice ambiance and very tasty French food.
This is a restaurant that we have long patronized and generally speaking the service and food have been very good. Last night, however, we asked three times for bread to go with the onion soup and escargot (bread is integral to enjoyment of this dish) and the bread did not come until both of us were nearly done with our appetizers. The steak special was entirely gristle and inedible. It was sent back. The chicken was slightly better, but was dry and largely tasteless. Don’t know if this was a one-time glitch or a sign of a permanent decline in quality for this well-loved bistro.
Wonderful place to meet up with friends
Love Lexpress and have been coming for years! the place is beautiful, the food is great, the service is excellent, yet the atmosphere is relaxed and laid back and we always feel at home. one of our favorite places in NYC and has been for 25 years! now we take our 16 years old kids there with us, and we all love it.
Our server was wonderful. She dealt with our requests professionally go out of their way to delight the customer.
nice place for a casual dinner. although they got our order wrong, still tasty
Staff is wonderful. Nice menu and alternatives offered with a smile.
We had a family gathering at L'Express. The wait staff was gracious and the food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere.
great ambiance - perfect place for a date. Great list of beers and drinks.
We have been going to L'Express for 20 years, but when we moved out of the neighborhood, much less now. We visited last night and commented how it is not surprising that the restaurant continues to thrive. Food is very good, always consistent, ambience is great, feels French. And service last night was terrific, couldn't have been better.
L'Express is a great choice, great neighborhood staple.
Wonderful bistro food, outstanding service and charming location
The service was great. Our server was very attentive. The food quality was OK. I remembered better food pre-Covid. It's a great neighbourhood place.
Great place for a work lunch.
Good service, below average food, nice location.
Everything was great! Food came out hot, service was fast, and wonderful ambiance!
Good service. Pleasant ambience. The onion soup is very very good. I like the staek tartare with french fries. The fries could be done a little longer so they are crisper and less wilted. Otherwise excellent nght out
Amazing food and service!
We love L’Express. Sat on the sidewalk this time. Excellent!
The food was great, especially a French onion tart appetizer on the Specials. The service was a bit spotty, which made no sense since it was no especially crowded. But, overall, very good food.
