In fact it was my last meal in newyork! I was so fascinated about your signature drinks cause it was so nice! Overall the server was the kindest man I’ve ever met and the dishes I served was absolutely nice and fine among the fine dining restaurants in newyork!
Very nice atmosphere and service is great. Perfect for special occasions.
Tocqueville was outstanding. Everyone is our group thought each course was exceptional. The service was very good and not intrusive. The room is beautiful and every table has a great deal of space. What a New York treasure- so civilized.
Celebrated post-Valentine's Dinner and wife's birthday, and it was a phenomenal experience & cuisine. Ordered off the a la carte menu with some customization. Our splendid waiter was quite helpful with specifics & wine pairings by the glass. Some not even on the menu. Our table for two was recessed and so romantic. Service was impeccable. The discreet remembrance of my wife’s birthday was quite nice with a custom dessert to accompany the one we ordered.
Everything we had - we loved. Truly amazing was the artic char tartare, Followed by Sea Urchin pasta and duck. We were not be disappointed with anything on the menu and could not ask for better service.
We celebrated Valentine's Day a day late and were not disappointed by the food or the service. The service was attentive with out being overbearing and very warm. We both ordered the Wagyu Steak dish and were blown away by the tender meat and its succulent juices. We also had wine pairing with the help of the knowledgeable and courteous Somm. We will definitely be coming back again to experience more of the expertly chosen wine list. Dessert was perfectly portioned and capped off the meal wonderfully. We finished our meal with a lovely Hennessey Paradis.
Booked a month in advance and were seated upstairs in the hall by the bathrooms. Guess we just don't deserve the main dining room. Service was slow and food was completely average. Yes it was Valentine's Day. They were packing us in and doubling the prices. The meal was worth about a third of what we paid. Should have known better.
I began my evening at Tocqueville greeted with smiles and warmth. The service was impeccable and the food was truly lovely. I had the very rich and creamy Uni Carbarnara, which was delicious but not for anyone on a diet. I later had the Trout dish, which was both visually and palette pleasing as well as totally creative. For dessert my guest and I shared an assortment of house made ice-creams and sorbets. The overall ambiance of the restuarant was classy and still cozy and comfortable. The staff was very informative and friendly. Cannot wait to come back again to try the duck dish.
A definite must try. We opted for the 7 course tasting menu which turned out to be more like 11 courses. First came a few bite size courses from off the menu and each was delicious. Then we had our 7 courses and the portions were appropriately sized and each dish excelled in taste and presentation. It was nice that we also had some flexibility in what we chose from the menu. A variety of sweets to follow the dessert course rounded out the 11th course.
Cocktails were good. We didn't do the wine pairing.
Service was excellent.
OUTSTANDING. REALLY SPECIAL. DESERVES MORE ACCLAIM. LOVED IT.
Tocqueville is excellent in every way. From the perfect oysters trough the blue cheese course, food, service and ambience are world class. The wine list is excellent as well.
Calm, professional, beautifully understated, delicious!
My husband and I celebrated our 3 year Anniversary here at Tocqueville and I am thrilled to say this place is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. The Ambiance , The Food, The drinks and the service was beyond expectations! We ordered appetizers, entrees, and desserts and each course was quite impressive. Our server made our night very special and I would recommend anyone that is celebrating a romantic night to dine here.
really amazing! food was delicious and the service was impeccable
Tocqueville is truly one of the Gems in NYC. As I entered the restaurant the ambiance was very sophisticated and elegant. The host welcomed me with a smile and overall the service was very pleasing. I ordered the California Sea Urchin and Angel Hair Carbonara as an appetizer and it was delicious and creamy!, the Smoked Duck Breast was exceptional. My date and I had an amazing time, I cannot wait to come back again.
Friendly, elegant with great food. Loved the tasting menu and wine pairing.
Excellent restaurant. We eat here every time we come to New York and are never disappointed. Wonderful wait staff, great wine pairings and beautiful quiet dining room. We love this restaurant!
Their lunch continues to be my favorite way to spend a couple hours on a Saturday afternoon. Delicious from start to finish, delightful and welcoming staff, well priced for what you get, and a peaceful respite from chaotic and noisy atmospheres compared to damn near every other option.
This trip was partly inspired by a somewhat lackluster experience earlier in the week at a midtown Restaurant Week option. The service and food at that Fifth Avenue option left me craving Tocqueville all the more, and I was relieved and refreshed to enjoy once again the wonderful focaccia, the cheese puffs (that should be enjoyed swiftly while warm!), the always-good salads, tasty and comforting duck parmentier, and the housemade ice creams and sorbets.
Tocqueville is a small masterpiece of a French restaurant. From the moment you enter this its aura of luxurious, yet simple, ambiance, you are embraced by the attentive and highly professional staff. Details of fine dining are meticulously executed as to comfort, service, knowledge of food and wine and, of course, splendid classic French cuisine designed with imagination and cooked with formidable skill. Note that the atmosphere and tone of the house is wonderfully civilized, yet never stuffy. Tocqueville understands that its clients come for a delightful dining experience, and that is precisely what they get. Enjoyment prevails.
One of the best meals I️ have hand in a long Time. Very good potion sizes, and the service was amazing. I️ will come back as long as it is there.
Tocqueville is always a special treat. The food, service, and ambiance are outstanding. We love every opportunity to dine there.
I was shopping at the USQ Market and decided to treat myself to lunch. I've heard wonderful things about their prix fixe and gave it a shot. First off, I thought it was great that they have a 2 or 3 course option. I'm a light eater and went with just appetizer and entree. Secondly, the food was delicious. The butternut squash was so rich and hearty and perfect on a cold day! And the duck parmentier was just as incredibly rich and delicious. I will be back again, next time I will bring a guest to share this wonderful food with!
Lovely, mostly quiet room with smooth, polite service and excellent food. We were given a delicious amuse bouche followed by the tasty cheddar salad and a well-crafted serving of steak and short ribs, not heavy as it may sound. We'd definitely go again. Only downside: the menu is heavy on fois gras.
One of the finest dining experiences ever in NYC. Everything was simply perfect.
Another wonderful meal (lunch this time) at Tocqueville in one of the most civilized rooms in the city. As it was a late lunch, we had the room almost to ourselves and felt especially well taken care of. Food/beverages/service all outstanding. Perfect.
Good meal and service. Sea urchin pasta is the most notable dish.
Staff had attitude
Prefix lunch entree was a misnomer; duck leg parmentier was mostly mashed potatoes. It was difficult to find any taste or sight of duck.
Despite the complimentary amuse Bouche and extra dessert, it was not a positive eating experience.
Quietness was the best characteristic.
This is my favorite restaurant in the area and the experience is always a home run!
Meal was disappointing. Risotto was bland and a little off; scallops lacked seasoning; foie gras a bit spongy.
Excellent in every way. Beautiful room, professional service, wonderful food.
I had been to the bar many times and had a few bites which were always good. This was my first dinner experience and was phenomenal. I had the mushroom risotto as an appetizer. This was the highlight of my meal. So delicious, creamy, not heavy. For dinner I had the cod. The dish itself was delicious but its presentation was amazing. For dessert I had the chestnut Napoleon. Very light and flavorful and the perfect ending. The staff are always extremely attentive to your every need and wish. The bartender was very gracious and every dish was carefully paired by the Sommelier. Definitely a spot for a special occasion!
