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 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.

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!

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.
Highly recommended!

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.

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.

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.

Loved this place but...
The food was outstanding. A flavorful but light french toast and fruit was great and the shakashuka was bold and done perfectly. The front was handled by 3 pros who made sure the customers had what they needed.
But...no coffee at Sunday brunch because of a technical problem with the machine? Go to the Starbucks around the corner and get a few carafes for your clientele !

This was my first time at RDV for any occasion. The unlimited mimosa deal was great for us. I ordered the Le Parisien and it was wonderful. The other diners with me enjoyed their meals as well. There was live music, which wasn’t intrusive despite it not being a very large establishment. The GM was very friendly and accommodating. It started to get busier as the day went on but that’s only natural when there aren’t a ton of people working. Highly recommended!

This is a gem of a restaurant! It transports you to a small bistro in the south of France. Inventive cuisine, fresh and local ingredients and charming atmosphere.

Had a wonderful dinner with a good friend here! Great atmosphere and a great Rośe happy hour - but think of it as a classier happy hour.

Only criticism I would have was our main course dishes were slow to arrive and it got a bit warm in the space on a muggy-humid day in NYC.

Great value on the menu overall - the food was daaalissh!

Will be returning and recommending to friends who live in our area and to people looking to explore the fantastic neighborhood of Fredrick Douglas Blvd. and Central Park West.
