    A lovely neighborhood spot that has a timeless fell. Very friendly servers and management. My only complaint is that our bread was stale! I loved my duck pate, my coq au vin, and my brussels sprouts.

    What a lovely bistro! The service and the food were both terrific. They have a very fun cocktail menu as well. It's a small restaurant where you can talk and have a conversation with your dining companions. Will definitely go back again.

    I was extremely pleased with the food and service at this restaurant. From the beginning the hospitality was superb with the hostess manager managing our group of 12 reservation on NYE. As our party came in she directed them to our table and checked on us. The waiter was attentive and very helpful with menu decisions. I ordered the lamb shank meal and it was amazing. Fall off the bone tender, juicy and very flavorful. Everyone enjoyed their meals with there being some minor issues regarding the mild seasoning on the seafood dishes but it’s a French restaurant. I would definitely return. Great experience.

    One of my favorite bistros in Manhattan. They make everything from scratch which is becoming more of a rarity. The staff is all great but especially the waitress who’s apparently always working. I haven’t had anything yet that I didn’t like but my favorites are the Niçoise salad, French onion soup, lamb chops, and hanger steak. It’s an intimate space, lots of familiar faces since most people working there have been with them for years and years. Definitely one to try if you find yourself in Soho.

    This is not a 5 star review that puts Les Amis on par with Michelin star restaurants. This is just the perfect cozy bistro with delicious French comfort food. It’s not a scene, but it’s popular. It has always felt like one of those rare neighborhood restaurants in a city full of “the next hot restaurant” I love it.

    Found the restaurant over the summer while I was walking in Soho.Whenever i walk by it’s always busy so we decided to try it for brunch. The food was delicious and the wait staff was extremely friendly and on top of everything! Not crazy expensive and worth it. We have now been there 3 times and will be back very soon.

    We had a nice dinner here. We started with cocktails (quite nice) and calamari which was very good. The wine list is very small with mediocre wines, a real disappointment. I got pork which was very fatty but good. My partner got the croque monsieur. It was almost inedible, tasted like microwaved cheese on bread. I would not return.

    Overall, the food was not good. The tuna tartar was too cold and lacked flavor, although it was pretty in its presentation. The hanger steak (which was >$40) was very chewy and doused in a sauce that didn't add a special flavor. The fries were great as was the bread. The branzino with risotto were dry and lacked flavor. The molten cake for dessert was yummy. The atmosphere was nice, although you heard the music in front but not in the back; the empty tables said it all.

    Bistro Les AmisResponded on October 29, 2022First it’s unfortunate that you didn’t enjoy your dinner with us, I found out after being in this business for over 40 years that I can’t make everyone happy. Second there’s always people who are not generally happy. From the moment I greeted you I know you were a challenge. Unfortunately we were the wrong restaurant for you to celebrate your birthday. Glad that you’re one of the very few who didn’t enjoy their experience with us. Have a wonderful life

    I had a wonderful lunch at Bistro Les Amis a few weeks ago, and wanted to return to try out the dinner menu. It was even better. The beet salad was fresh and delicious, and the cod fish special was simply out of this world. I finished with the blueberry pie, which was also amazing. My server Ben was terrific and made certain that everything was perfect. One of the best French restaurants in NYC, without a doubt.

    Can’t speak more highly of Bistro Les Amis if I tried. The cocktails were amazing, and the recommended wine pairing went quite well with my dish. I’ve been craving Coq au vin for months now, and they did NOT disappoint; I finished the entire dish. Such a perfect birthday meal, and I will absolutely be back!
