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.

I had been there before as a guest and liked so much that I took a friend there tonight.
My guest got there before me and they asked if he wanted to sit on the side so we could sit next to me even though it was hidden in a far corner of the restaurant, behind the columns so as not see or be seen.
When I arrived I asked for a more conducive place And was told That the place was full with reservations even though only two tables had diners at 645 on a Saturday night.
The staff was repeatedly rude
And haughty beyond belief. The soufflé wasn’t tepid and not cooked enough and soggy inside, the coffee also was warm as I drink it black, they wouldn’t offer any replacement dessert, and said they wouldn’t charge presumably so I wouldn’t write a scathing review.
Thank heavens you did reach out.
They told my friend they we were not to come back to the restaurant.
Horrible people to treat anyone this way.
They haven’t a right to pull this despair to me. I have health problems as it is and they have upset me and humiliated me beyond belief.

We’ve dinned here several times and always been most impressed. It’s admittedly very expensive, but it’s one of the few such places that is worth it and actually delivers. If you are looking for an elegant, upscale and refined French dining experience and the tab is not an issue, you can’t do better than this.

Little gem on the East Side , beautiful flowers, the food , the decor, the service make you feel like you are in France enjoying a nice meal in a very pleasant atmosphere, this is like traveling without leaving the city , and of course you must have the soufflé for desert

Very pretty facilities, lots of elegant flowers, all coordinated with blue/pink motif extending to glasseare, etc.

French senior staff.

Food quite good but not stellar. Wine list decent. Service pleasant, smooth, and professional.

Crowd was elderly when we visited, low key Upper East Side formal retired vibe.

Fine with me.

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.

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.
