Modern Classy French Bistro
Great atmosphere, professional and friendly staff, the finest and delicate seasonal ingredients locally sourced. well prepared and served with love à la Française.
Our motto : La cuisine, L'amour, La vie.
Need to book at 1:30 AM?Other great restaurants with availability.
So many delicious choices on the menu. We love the chef's specials. We are treated warmly, like family.
The service was non-existent: slow, disorganized and staff were clearly more engaged in chatting with each other than working. To compound the issue this was a special night with a prix-fixe menu! Friends visiting from LA and Chicago were also stunned. As for the food, the hamachi was overpowered by the citric acid, and venison overcooked and tough. I really hope this was an isolated/off night, as I’d like to see a small locally owned business thrive.
Food was good but nothing special. Ambience was eh as I expected something more upscale which this was definitely not. Very inattentive service even though we told them it was a birthday. Asked for cappuccino at end of meal and told their machine was broken which would have been helpful to know before meal began (it was brunch).
Kfir is unbelievable
This place is a GEM. We have been going here for over a year now and I just realized I never wrote a review and this place is worth reviewing. The staff- delightful. The food- remarkable. The drinks- divine. Many of my favorite dishes (if someone asks me) are from here. The best escargot! From the spreads to the steak, everything is delicious. Another favorite of mine is the Harlem Mule, by far the best version of a Moscow mule I’ve had and I’m a bartender. Aside from the menu truly being splendid, the staff always makes us feel so welcome and special. We absolutely love this place.
Great to have French cuisine in the neighborhood. I had a dinner special Magritte de Canard ( sic) that was excellent with unusual touches such as herbs, fruits and sauces that gave the dish unexpected flavors. The chefs concept was nothing short of brilliant! I am a regular visitor at RDV. Susan
This is a very charming space. The food was very high quality and the service was great. Nice wine list. There is easy subway access as well.
Great ambiance, amazing service, bad food!
Excellent food, wine, ambiance. Happy hour drinks are great too.
Always delish.... Brings us back to our travels in France. Lovely jewel....in our neighborhood.
Quiet dinner on a Sunday evening after a Broadway show. . Cheese plate & wine was good way to begin a very nice meal. Mussels & steak delicious. Affordable & varied french wines to pick from. Service was excellent . This was our 2nd time at RDV and will return to this very welcoming spot.
My partner and I had dinner this past weekend. Food, service, and ambience were wonderful. Very civilized and classy. This place is a must do again.
Great food and drink and a nice little bistro vibe!
Fantastic place for a weekend brunch! We loved the 90 minute unlimited booze!
Wonderful food and service. Would highly recommend the food, wine selection and the staff is lovely.
Nous avons attendu au bar: aucun service et personnel très froid. Cocktail trop alcoolisé. Repas très mauvais. On paie la vue sur Times Square.
Last minute reservation but it worked out. We all had their brunch. Two of our party of 4 enjoyed their meal, mine and my friends was a little disappointing as we did not expect a “Smokey” flavor that dominated the Nicoise Salad. The appetizer spreads were excellent and the drinks were fine as well. Cute place, nice vibe!
Highly recommend this restaurant. Welcoming staff - quaint space - moderate noise level. Kfir and his team understand the restaurant business from walking in to dessert and everything in between. Not only was the food fresh with great variety, it was also presented on the plate worthy of Instagram pictures. The wine list was affordable and the drink menu was creative. Easy to get to by uber as well as plenty of street parking.
Always good,interesting and fun. A great Thanksgiving meal.
Always excellent. RDV is a neighborhood gem worth a trip. The food is always fresh, deeply flavorful and comforting. There are fancy bites for those in the mood and what may be the City’s best burger and fries (with smoked paprika)! Kfir, Joseph, and the whole team really go out of their way to make everyone part of the family.
Great happy hour wine special, and they served was extremely helpful!
Great neighborhood gem on FDB and 112. Laid back and friendly crowd, very good food and warm service
They do need some soundproofing! But the food is Delicious and creative and I love the way the owner spends time with each customer.
We arrived around 6-6:30 on a Friday night. It was a typical small place; very cozy, quite and intimate. Very lovely... around 8 the place was packed and very loud. (Loud patrons) can’t blame Restaurant for its patrons. Service was top notch, food & staff excellent! That night happened to be their 3 yr anniversary and the gave everyone champagne. It was a very nice night!
Great neighborhood find. Outstanding food. Attentive staff. Wish they had more tables ! I will definitely be back.
It’s a quit neighborhood restaurant. The food was very tasty and well prepared. We had the duck, the scallops and the loup de mer.
It was a bit overpriced for neighborhood dining. Overall it was very good.
Visited RDV with friends from San Francisco..they loved everything about the restaurant.
The food is always excellent as is the wine list. There is an ease here that's hard to describe. So many French places in NYC seem to try too hard,not RDV. The menu and service just seem to unfold naturally.
A terrific neighborhood restaurant: very good food, a substantial yet affordable wine list, pleasant and attentive service, and a volume level that allows for conversation.
Delicious food, great cocktails, attentive service, respectably priced.
The food was amazing!
I think it was our Waitress's first day, so that was the only unfortunate part as she wasn't able to answer any questions at all.
I had the burger it was ok. I would not order it again. My friend had the duck, he said it was tasty, but chewy
The food was great and innovative. The atmosphere and service terrific!
Great food, great service, great atmosphere! We really liked the mussels that were on special. Salmon and tuna tartar were also winners.
Nice spot. Wednesday is 50% off on selected wines. Service was solid. Food was... ok. Quiet atmosphere with outdoor seating. We will try again to see if the food is better.
Love this restaurant. Small and pleasantly intimate. Excellent food presented perfectly with good wine to pair with.
Sat outside and enjoyed a leisurely brunch on a sunny day. The staff were very friendly, prompt and the meal was delicious! What a great neighborhood gem!
RDV is a gem. The food is eclectic and delicious. Amazing wine choices as well as fun and tasty cocktails. I can’t wait to return!
Amazing food. Great ambiance.. good vibes
Remains as authentic and friendly as ever! Truly a gem
Great neighborhood French. High quality at a reasonable price.
