    This restaurant was wonderful!! Best creme brûlée and chocolate mousse I’ve ever tasted. My daughter chose this for her 14th birthday and loved it. The staff is so friendly and warm. Such an enjoyable experience—would highly recommend!!

    The food and the service are wonderful. We went on Valentine's day, had Duck pate, which was really fine, and a great beef in a wine reduction sauce, potatoes dauphinoise..... It is our local restaurant, and we love to go over there for mussels....

    Little hidden gem with amazing French food. Only negative was the small tables with little leg room. I had the Icelandic cod and my husband had the chicken. Both were cooked perfectly. The winter salad was lightly dressed and so fresh!

    I read such great reviews on this place, but sadly we found it very noisy, and the food was not great... It was overpriced, particularly the wines. It was not the great French food, with an ambiant location we hoped for.

    Love the atmosphere of Les Enfants de Boheme but the food is very mediocre. Had been here a couple times just for drinks at the bar, and since it's such a comfortable neighborhood spot decided to come for a date night. We split two appetizers and each had our own entree, and we both found them below average. Would come back, but for the ambiance and a glass of wine.

    I had only been to LEs enfants for drinks and wanted to try them for a pre-theater dinner. I enjoyed my drink and steak and he crème brûlée is the best I’ve had in New York. Friendly service. Not fancy at all but quite comfortable. The staff were pleasant and welcoming. I’d go back!

    Food was good. We had the braised beef and the chicken. Both dishes delicious. Neat little place to hang out have a drink and get some food. When we’re back in NYC we’ll definitely go back. Just a heads up, it’s cash only. But they do have an atm in the back.

    We were very disappointed with this restaurant. We went here for Father's Day. As soon as we walked in our elderly aunt hit fell on a step she didn't notice and hit her head and was bleeding. The staff seemed extremely annoyed and did not lend her any sympathy or ask if she was ok. One of the staff, who I believe was a busser, was rolling his eyes making faces. It was so incredibly rude. It just felt like they didn't want these older locals here at their fancy restaurant. We decided to stay anyway. It was very loud and hard to hear anything because the World Cup was on and the service was extremely slow. The food was good but the overall experience left us feeling like we were the old New York pariah and we were not welcome at this hip new restaurant.

    Really a taste of the ‘old’ New York, circa 1980’s, even up to the early ‘90’s in certain neighborhoods. That beautiful feeling of an existing area, not gentrified, not ‘discovered’ - authenticity, all sorts of people, not restaurant after bar after restaurant. A warm welcome, attentive service and delicious food. When the check came, my friend delightedly exclaimed “This was so cheap!” We ate until we were more than full, had a martini and wine, and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

    Went for Mother’s Day brunch. Food was good. Staff seemed overwhelmed and was pretty inattentive (no coffee refills, received our drinks later than tables that arrived after us). We have been here for dinner several times and have always enjoyed friendly and attentive service. I think they were just having an off morning. Will come back on not a busy holiday.

    Appetizers were excellent -- kale salad and duck pate frise. My steak was scrumptious as was my husband's duck. Our friend thought her fish overly salted though I didn't taste it so cannot confirm.

    This place was just lovely! The servers were friendly and appropriately attentive, the ambience was pleasant, and the food was excellent. DH had the watermelon gazpacho special to start and I had the grilled artichoke salad, a win-win situation, always good. Then I had the steak with a tasty red pepper chimichurri sauce and several other sauce routines and I really liked that. DH had the beef braise with carrots, and though I really liked it (nice deep caramelized taste) he thought I won, so who am I to argue? I let him have some of mine when I was stuffed. We shared the apple pie for two desert, but DH ate all the ice cream, so I can't tell you whether that was good or not. Note to self, don't share deserts with DH. We found a really good bordeaux that didn't break the bank, so we were happy all around. They don't take credit cards, so bring some cash or use the ATM in the back.

    We had a great time at Les Enfants de Boheme! The restaurant is a tiny gem tucked away in a residential area of the Lower East Side. We started with the soup of the day, which was creamed mushroom with goat cheese. It was super creamy and a great start to the meal. For the main course I ordered the roast chicken with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. The chicken was cooked perfectly. I only wish there had been more than two small carrots on the side. My boyfriend ordered the Atlantic cod, which was flaky and delicious, if a little too salty. We finished with the apple pie for two for dessert, which was the perfect end to the meal! We will definitely be back next time we're in New York!
