I have previously really enjoyed this restaurant but not this last time. The service was horrible. We shouldn’t have even tipped, but we did. It was Bastille Day, the restaurant was nearly empty, yet the waitresses were either nowhere to be found or appeared to be ignoring diners. Food was ok
But not worth all the waiting.

We were very comfortable. The service was very good and when we were there the restaurant was very quiet. Maybe I suggest that it should be nice a Children Menu. We were white a five years old girl and it’s easier when then have a simple Menu

We found the restaurant very noisy. Not a great place to go if you want to visit.
The food was very good. I had the trout and it was perfect.
One of us had the steak tartar and said it was very good as was the steak frites.
Would certainly return.

The service is impeccable: attentive, friendly, and polite. No need goes unnoticed. The atmosphere is likewise fantastic: cozy, authentic, and tourist free! It's a local place and it feels like it, in the very best way possible. The food is great, although the quality (on a spectrum of good to excellent) depends on whose in the kitchen. I was a little underwhelmed during my most recent visit. My meal was good, but the portion was smaller than usual and it seemed rushed. Generally, a lot of love goes into each dish! As far as price, each plate is about $5-$8 too expensive. It's a bistro that serves french comfort food and the menu is standard fare. That said, the location is by the park, which most likely accounts for the upcharge. Overall, I would definitely recommend!

Food is delicious but pricey. I had a cheeseburger and with tip ended up paying 35 dollars. That's a lot of money for a burger. But it's authentically French and everything was lovely. A typical French brasserie.

Merveilleux! I found this wonderful gem and the dinner and cocktails were amazing! The steak frites was like butter barely having to chew it. Make sure you leave room for dessert as their molten chocolate cake is to die for!

The staff was lovely, friendly, and it was almost like going back to Paris where you are not rushed out of the restaurant. Loved it and I would suggest going there if you want a taste of Paris without getting on the plane!

Delicious food. Service OK (it was busy). The restaurant is a few steps from Central Park and has outdoor sitting but we preferred to sit inside: Great ambiance and decor feel like you are in Paris. Downside: These are NY prices not Paris prices ! Any bistro in Paris or anywhere in France would have a "formule" (prix fixe) for lunch which would offer appetizer + entrée or entrée +dessert for less than E20; with wine this would have brought the price to a third or less of what we were charged.

Eat here Tuesday nights because the Dover Sole special is outstanding. Had a special Spinach/Potato soup that was wonderful with no cream. Service lovely. Since I eat here as a "one" it gets very loud if seated near a foursome (and tables are very close together). Other than that, food is perfect every time.

Service was slow and seating was seated in corner and tight (close to other people dining). Ordered steak for my dad and requested medium but meat came out very red when you cut it?suggestive of rare instead of medium.
