Tocqueville Ratings and Reviews
Still going strong. Great atmosphere and service. Food is consistently good, this time the duck was my favorite dish however the other 4 courses were fantastic. Really, that entire tasting menu with pairing was a work of art. Many Thanks to Fatima and Fran for making my husbands birthday memorable.
The bar was well stocked with the largest variety of scotch and bourbon that I have ever seen in NYC. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. The service was impeccable without being intrusive. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. An oasis of quiet in a busy and noisy city.
Excellent if you are in the mood for a staid experience. Food is excellent: consistent, beautifully-plated, and service is also professional. Decor and atmosphere is a bit dated and heavy - think Restaurant Daniel pre-renovation. Prices are VERY high ($ 16 desserts!) but not surprisingly so.
An expense account GO!
Toqueville is well out of its slump of a few years back. Food was great and imaginative.
The beef dish portion of the tasting menu was not what my wife expected, although nothing wrong with it. They graciously offered her an alternative.
Looking forward to going back
This is as elegant a setting as I have seen in New York City and the service and food were definitely up to the standard it set. We found the restaurant to be very cozy and romantic, the atmosphere is serene.
Everyone was helpful and friendly from the lovely hostess to the charming bartender to the server, runners and bussers. Service was impeccable, even refolding the napkins every time you got up. Food was creative and perfectly prepared
We ordered the 5 course tasting menu. Each course got progressively worse as the meal
continued Paired with sauternes. sweet wines. Never going back again.
Having been to just about all the fine restaurants in Gramercy/Flatiron thought we would try something different. Big mistake.
Tocqueville is a very lovely and refined restaurant. The cooking is sophisticated and beautifully prepared, the environment is great, it's sort of Upper East Side meets Union Square, and you can see the care that went into the restaurant, not just for show but for those who expect a comfortable and elegant setting in which to enjoy a fine meal. I really like the space a lot, it's comfortably elegant.
Tasting menu was amazing. The service was impeccable and extremely friendly. The restaurant is warm and welcoming. Great music plays while you dine in leisure. The wine pairings were amazing and perfectly matched to each course. Thank you to Fatima and to Bruno. Best service I have ever experienced.
My wife arranged a celebratory birthday dinner for me at Tocqueville. Fatima Zielinska worked with her on every aspect of the evening. She created a special tasting tasting menu which addressed my wife's allergy to crustaceans and satisfied my love of that food. Fatima also attentively "watched over us" during the evening as well suggesting and serving the wines which were paired with the 5 courses.This intimately sized, beautifully appointed restaurant is known to provide a highly rated classic NYC fine dining experience and richly deserves its excellent reputation. I also want to thank all staff for their high level of professional graciousness and competence and once again I say enthusiastically............THANK YOU FATIMA.
Service is impeccable and food was tastefully presented and fresh.The ambience and decor is elegant and quiet though there are lively conversations at other tables.I am sure dinner would be even better with the wine pairings and tasting menu. It was a quick get together on our way to the airport for a trip abroad. So next time ,we would have time to savor and linger.
Always good. Unfortunately, the Scottish trout turned out to be Scotish Salmon, so this time I was disappointed with the main course. It was delicious but not what I expected and nothing out of the ordinary. French is what is spoken by staff and I think this was a language issue.
The Tocqueville online reservations system is problematic. For the second time, I had no reservation when I arrived, although I had booked on line. Did on their website although booking was through OpenTable. Advise to call for reservation rather than do online here.
Still, this a gem of a restaurant.
I came with my son who's turning 18 next month to plan his birthday party with him and we just had amazing experience all around, from friendly staff , food, ambiance, decor simply put a New York gem on 15th street
While we waited for table to be set bartender Eddie was entertaining us with clever humor and delicious cocktails that time flew by before we got to our table and then we got a pleasant surprise when we ordered our food " out of this world delicious "
Appetizers from heavenly grits's and sea urchin angel hair carbonara that was so light and tasty
For main course I had lightly smoked duck breast just done right- delicious and my son had Butter poached Maine Lobster that was so tasty that my son loved it And then for desert Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Bon Bon with hazelnut ice cream reminded me of home -Europe
