Underwhelming for the price. The place is a nicely decorated version of the previous restaurant. The service was really friendly and accommodating. The food was very expensive commensurate with the decor and the neighborhood. The food was French style but none of it was subtle or enjoyable. The steak tartare was so incredibly spicy that neither the steak, or egg, or anything could be distinguished. The pate’ was not bad but not great. My companion’s steak fritte was tough and tasteless while he tends to be a picky eater. I tried it and couldn’t argue. He filled up on the fries. Another companion is not a picky eater and was just hungry. The ragu was gamey and there were just a few pieces of rigatoni. She filled up on bread. The French onion soup was very sweet and tangy. Like someone threw too much Worcester Sauce in. The wine was pricey, but too heavy, and sweet to be called Cote du Rhône or Pinot Noir. If you must go, stick with the bread and butter, French fries, and mixed drinks. And tip well or these nice servers will starve.
We went for Father's Day brunch. We were seated upstairs which was quiet, but far away from the brunch buffet. We had to navigate stairs (with plate of food....) every time we went to the buffet. There were two members of our party who ordered off the menu and had to wait a good while for their food, despite the restaurant not being that crowded. Also, the water for tea wasn't hot, but warm. Small things, for sure, but worth noting. The restaurant is beautiful, the food very tasty, and the chef working the omelette station was very nice. If you plan to do the buffet, request a seat downstairs.
Lovely restaurant and outstanding service was unfortunately overshadowed by food that was not up to expectations in terms of preparation and value for the price.
My steak was tough and overcooked and my wife's duck was under cooked.
All other aspects of the experience were terrific, but it is hard to get past poorly prepared entrees, especially when the establishment aspires to be viewed as fine dining.
Had a later dinner and service was very slow. We sat unattended for probably 10minutes with empty water glasses (never filled) before we flagged someone down to give us water and get our waiter. Cocktails were very good (if pricey) and food was good. Loud on the first floor with the tile floors. Sit upstairs if you can.
I want to love the Bercy, but I went twice this past weekend and both times had some disappointing elements. For Brunch this past Sunday, we had a 10:15 reservation, and we were the only people in the restaurant until we were almost done our meal. Our server was attentive and the staff overall were very nice to my toddler, who wanted to walk around. (as we were the only ones in the whole place, this wasn't a problem). Live music (saxophone and guitar) started around 11- it was low key and pleasant, very nice for brunch. They offer a buffet for $35, but we opted for a la carte.
Pros: The coffee was good, the kids meal was nice. The fries were delicious, the salad fresh. My bloody Mary was very strong (was a con for me but likely a pro for others!)
Cons: My husband loves croque madame, and the online menu stated they had this option for brunch, which was the entire reason we decided to go to the Bercy for brunch. When we got there, it wasn't on the menu. We asked, the server said the menu was updated last week. He reported what the quiche of the day was, and my husband ordered it. He came back a few minutes later and reported it was the wrong quiche, and updated what the right quiche was. The new quiche was not what my husband wanted, and so we asked if they are able to make a croque madame even though it was taken off of the menu recently. They came back to say they couldn't because they didn't have any ham. I ordered eggs benedict, which came out with two large pieces of ham. My husband got the burger and enjoyed it, but the reasoning for not making a croque madame, which is basically a fancy ham and cheese sandwich with an egg and sauce, was untrue. All they had to do was say they won't make anything off of the menu- no problem!
My eggs in the benedict were overcooked, there was no run at all in the yolk, it was a very jammy egg at best. It was also only lukewarm. Despite this, it was very tasty. I would go again.
host was amazing. her name is sophie.
Service was very slow outside, scallop entree was very over priced for the portion given.
Variety was great, cocktails were good not great.
Wine list too short (not many choices).
Noicy, and my friend and I do not like that.
I love The Bercy. Everyone is so pleasant and extremely helpful with recommendations. They always have time for you and never rush you. Food is delicious. Love the oysters...love the escargot ,actually love everything.
My first time there but not my last. Loved it!
Great food and atmosphere....
We really enjoyed the ambience, the food was good - nothing outstanding, but overall a nice time enjoyed by all.
Every dish from start to finish was an experience! I had the Goat Cheese Royale which was so good and the Halibut and both were so full of flavor. The service was excellent and and they have a great wine list! We can't wait to be back!
Atmosphere and service were great. Food was overpriced and not very good.
I ordered the veal millenase that was deep fried. The chief must have forgotten it because it was over cooked by at least 15 minutes. I sent it back and ordered what my wife had, beef bourgonion. Another mistake. As hers was the beef was over cooked and fatty and the pasta undercooked.
Over rated and very much overpriced.
Will not go back.
Very good. Cool space and food was excellent.
Totally empty at 12- so obviously not a lunch crowd- but we enjoyed our delicious and very fresh appetizers and great entrees.
Good service! Nice food too! But I'd like larger portions on the quiche
Sunday brunch very limited
Best hostess! Love Jen!
Outstanding dinner, beautiful setting, attentive service. This restaurant is a gem and Ardmore is lucky to have them there.
It took too long , but they gave us an appetizer and dessert on the house , but of the delay! Everything was delicious '
Delightful Wednesday night dinner with my favorite people and at my favorite restaurant. Beet salad was a perfect starter followed by the tuna and steak frites. Best ice cream ever!!! New mint chocolate chip flavor is outstanding! It’s a shame they don’t sell the ice cream by the gallon! Try it!!! Go!!!
Great place for dinner, choose upstairs if you want to have a conversation! Lunch is very sparsely populated and seems to attract retirees, the menu is somewhat limited but offers something for all. Definitely will return.
Good food and good service! Waiters very friendly and attentive.
The service was exceptional on every level! Most of the food was excellent. Our steak frites were served well done despite a medium rare order, but the flavor was still excellent and when we brought it to the attention of our waitress, it was rectified immediately with the enormous courtesy and grace. Beef Bourgignon, oysters, octopus and burgers were the winners on our visit -- really delicious.
The beef borginoine (forgive sp) had very little beef. Chicken was tasty. Overall good, great waiter. Nothing special
My friends and I were treated to a delicious meal, the food was incredible! Our server made great recommendations, and the cocktails were delicious. Try the Plastic Heart!! This is our new spot!
Great dinner. Service was excellent would definitely recommend and will continue to go to this fantastic restaurant
Being my first visit to The Bercy and having heard / read multiple good reviews, I was hoping for the same. It was good but far from great. The service was incredible slow. Watching three tables seated after us being served only added to that frustration. The food was good but again I was hoping for much better, especially since it was Mother's Day.
I will be back at some point however I not rushing back any time soon.
My service complaints are related to our wait staff who would take a knife after appetizers and not replace it so we had to ask when entrees arrived. Ditto when they brought tea in a mug with no spoon or saucer. Just weird. Also despite ramp up to restaurant it is not that elderly/walker friendly. And too noisy for elderly.
The experience from start to finish was absolutely lovely. Everything from the linens to the food was truly wonderful in so many ways!
Foods are amazing and service is top notch. However the portion of food is not on higher side but on the costlier side too.
Mother’s Day brunch - felt like a potluck. Ran out of food- example: no shrimp at raw bar and no filet at carving station. Burned omelet and waffles all broken in pieces. Worst of all - staff were non responsive. Never again!
We went to The Bercy for Mother's Day lunch. I did not know ahead of time that we had to do the "all you can eat" buffet, which was pricier than lunch from the menu. So while I do not think I would go there again for Mother's Day, all of the food was quite good. I had been to this restaurant for dinner twice before, and the food is always excellent with a good variety. In any case, we ended up having a great time and excellent food.
We visited for the $55 mother's day brunch buffet.
In fairness, I have not tried the normal dinner menu which is likely a very different experience. But if you evaluate the brunch buffet for what it is -- there is no justification to come here and pay this price point for the food that you get.
There is bread, some egg dish (it started out as a quiche lorraine and then switched to plain scrambled eggs after 1 hour of opening the doors), breakfast meat, seafood, omelet/waffle station, a carving station, and desserts. All of the food is laid out along the bar area with two satellite stations positioned awkwardly in corners of the dining area. Nothing I had was great -- it was all just generic breakfast food. The leg of lamb was definitely the low point of the meal. Several people were seated right in front of the buffet line and you could tell they were visibly annoyed by a sea of people's waists hovering inches away from their food for their entire meal.
It goes without saying that I would not go back again for the brunch -- but I would go as far as to say that I would not go back even if the price was cut in half.
Radnor Hotel Sunday brunch buffet is orders of magnitude better in quality, service, and ambiance at a price point 40% lower than Bercy. If I were a betting man, I would guess that the rate of return customers who attend Bercy for Mother's day brunch would be in the single digit percentages.
Unimpressed. Food was just ok, service not great. No need to return
We had a group of seven for my father's 80th birthday and enjoyed the experience. The service was excellent and accommodating. The interior is well designed, typical of many restaurants today. The prices are a bit on the high side, but the overall food quality is good. My French onion soup was excellent, although the steak with the steak frites was a bit on the fatty side.
Beautiful building and decor but they have work to do, particularly with their service staff. The food got out quick, but then the service stopped. They didn't come over to ask if everything came out right in a timely manner. By the time they got there and I had to ask for salt and pepper (should have already been on the table), my entree was halfway complete.
We had three creme brulees on our dessert table and no spoons. Took me five minutes to flag him down and ask for spoons. He gave me a passing "Yeah" upon hearing my request, walked over to the silverware area....and came back with forks. I was getting frustrated by now. "We are eating creme brulee, we need spoons!" He finally came back with spoons.
Sensing my frustration, he (Isaiah) then never returned to our table. He never dropped the check. We sat there for 20 minutes, sometime raising hands to get his attention, and he kept walking past us. Finally the other server brought our check to us.
Food: No real complaints. Most people were happy. The rotisserie chicken was vrey good. The veal disappointed. I didn't expect it to be breaded and fried. And if it is going to b breaded, there should be a sauce to soften it, not just arugula. So yeah, that wasn't a great dish.
Overall a pricey dinner for one of the least pleasing dinner experiences I have had in awhile. I don't expect to come back.
Service was really off. Was a bit surprised for a restaurant if this caliber. The manager acknowledged that service was bad, but his acknowledgement did not feel sincere.
Outstanding Bouillabaisse. Great service and ambiance.
