tree bistro serves thoughtfully prepared bistro fare in a casual friendly atmosphere, from small plate charcuterie delights to delectable standards like steamed PEI mussels or steak frites with parmesan truffle fries, along with a full and eclectic seasonal menu. A well rounded wine list, draft and bottled beers, cheese plates and house made desserts are also available. Guests can eat in the intimate dining room for a cozy meal, or in the more expansive canopied walled garden - an enchanting secret spot in the heart of the city. The garden is also a great festive space for private parties.

After crashing a local wedding, hungry and cold, we stumbled into a cab with no specific location in mind. As we scrambled to find an address for our confused driver, a quick google search for "good restaurant near me" produced the name that came to be our savior: The Tree Bistro. Dressed to impress and starving beyond belief we sauntered into the small entrance and was welcomed by a warm wall of friendly staff and impressively quirky, yet intriguing decor. With little to no knowledge of French cuisine, the waitress provided us with suitable options for the night: salmon and the tree burger. We were overwhelmed by their taste, and the burger's dangerous girth. After a meal full of satisfied moans and lots of laughter, we were offered a free dessert by the gracious owner. 10/10 on all fronts. I can not wait to go back, especially when the weather changes and the garden opens. Thank you Tree Bistro!

It’s an average food. I travelled 1:30 hr each way to get here as Trip advisor said it’s number 4 in New York. I have to unfortunately disagree. I am sure there are better places in New York than this.

My new favorite restaurant - anywhere in NYC. Wonderfully intimate, with an incredibly friendly owner and staff. Nothing was too much trouble and they took care of us - including very specific allergies. The food was nothing amazing! - Perfectly garnished, flavorful, cooked to perfection. The duck breast was without a doubt the best I have ever tasted. The goat cheese souffle was to die for. The service was perfect - and the entire team made our experience special. Come here. You will not be disappointed.

The food taste is really special. Short menu but enough. Always there are some additional daily suggestions. The wine list can cover your desire, I am sure.
Good staff, small place, cozy and the most important: the food is amazing. Taste explosion!

Second time there and reliably delicious food and great service. It was worth the freezing walk to, and from Chelsea! Thé cassoulet, roast chicken and steak droites are all excellent., but every dish that went by looked appealing.

The perfect girls night dinner. Impeccable food, great cocktails, attentive but not pushy service. Truly ideal.
