Intimate Bar and beautiful Lounge lead to unique restaurant with an open garden.

The subtly lit French oak paneled Bar greets you with booth banquettes and
tables amenable to serve Jacques’ Bar Menu, all day.

The Club Room; its coffered ceilings and fireplace create familiarity in the comfort
of a warm elegant home.

Both the Lounge and the Bar menus offer spontaneously prepared French delicacies, savory and sweet with distinct Mediterranean and Moroccan influence.

“Majorelle” restaurant; its vaulted ceiling, marble columns, and trellised garden with up-lighted fountains set the stage for fine French Cuisine and Service in an atmosphere of harmony and luxury for all the senses.

Beautiful space with subtle Moroccan touches and homage to the Majrorelle blue namesake as well as some Moroccan-influenced French dishes. The most gorgeous flower arrangements and I highly recommend arriving early for an aperitif in the elegant bar beforehand. However, for the price of the dinner, it should have been the most amazing meal of my life instead of just good.

Went for dinner with friends. Amazing service and nice ambiance, but the food is another story.
* Foie Gras PoêlÉ au sauternes - was swimming in oil.
* artichauts, foie GRas - the foie from pieces were so small, could not find them.
* Céviche de Bass au citron - surprisingly good.
* tajine d’Agneau aux Navets, Pruneaux, Couscous - the lam was very nice, the couscous was bland and had no flavor.
* filet de boeuf rossini - not bad, but nothing spectacular.
* baba au rhum - awful, just awful. A piece of bland bread covered in rum...
* nos soufflés - not bad, had better.

Our reservation was durring À LA CARTE SUPPER and it would have been cheaper will bill us a la carte, but the restaurant billed us pre fix.

For the money spent we received mediocre food, superb service.
If you are a foodie, skip this restaurant and go somewhere else.

Food was delicious!! But the tables are far too close together. The waiters were constantly rushing around (say in contrast to somewhere like The Bristol in Paris, where they glide discreetly! It was like watching a fast forward Disney movie. And we hated the fact that our meal came so quickly. Agreed, no-one wants to wait too long. But there was barely 4 minutes between starter and main, so no time to savour each course. We felt they couldn't wait to get us out so that the next couple could take our table. For a restaurant of this price (and our bill came to a whopping $570 once we added in the expected NY service tip) this was all wrong. It should have been the special occasion that we were looking forward to, something to remember with pleasure. Instead of which, the excellence of the food - and it was very good indeed - was eclipsed by the frenetic, noisy and unsatisfactory.

I think it is extremely important that it is clear there is a fixed price for dinner no matter if you just have soup. The cost was outrageous for what we had.
We just needed to know that’s all.

My first time at Majorelle, and it surpassed expectations. Charles and his team created an impeccable experience. The atmosphere was perfect, and the food even better. Every detail is perfect. This will be my new go-to on the UES. It literally has no competition.

Perfect Upper East Side oasis for delightful French cuisine! Scallops in orange oil were delightful, veal and shortbreads were even better, lovely Chassagne-Montrachet from the WL.
Service exceeded expectations, as usual. Table captain and servers were authentic, politely attentive without hint of hovering. Yes, do it; you'll feel more comfortable here in a jacket.

Four starts for the food feels a little mean - - it was excellent. But it wasn't quite up to the standards of say, Daniel, in terms of complexity and presentation, but the price point was similar. If three courses prix-fix had been $100 instead of $122, then I would have given the food 5 stars no question

The food, service and ambiance were excellent but clearly directed toward a more mature clientele so it was bit dull. Moreover, the price was far beyond that of better restaurants of equivalent quality. The fixed price was particularly onerous as we came in late for a small dinner.

Ask for the Prix Fixe menu (they didn't offer it immediately) if you are in a hurry or on a budget (relatively speaking).
Definitely order the dessert souffles!

I enjoy the total ambiance of Majorelle. The service is above par. The waiters are attentive but never too familiar.

The floral settings are always outstanding. It is very much Charles' signature.

I enjoy the intimacy of the setting. The food is always good.
