Little gem at the theatre district! Perfect place for pre-show dinner.
This is a Theater District gem. Delicious food that is reasonably priced. Service is good --they get you out in a timely fashion.
I bring out of town guests here and they love this piece of Paris in the heart of NYC.
I am never disappointed, whether it is for lunch or for dinner. Attentive service and excellent food.
Anthony is the prefect server. My husband and I had a lovely Sunday brunch. Delicious food in a lovely relaxed place to sit. The real stand out was the excellent service from Anthony - perfectly attentive without being intrusive. Ask to sit at his table!
Favourite place for breakfast. Spent valentines absolutely amazing
Nice atmosphere, waiter was French, food was mediocre, but reasonably priced.
If the special of the day is a French Cassoulet, order it.
Excellent service and food. My husband and I will definitely go back to this place.
Our first time at this terrific French bistro. Friendly and attentive staff and the cuisine was terrific.
Took my fiancee to brunch prior to a matinee on Saturday. Made a reservation, but was running late (missed ferry). Food and service were excellent, and we had plenty of time to talk and get to the show on time without feeling rushed.
Nice place but after spending 200+ for dinner with two friends they want to charge me for a refill on an iced tea while I sit at the bar waiting for my theater to open. Really??????????
Cute little French Bistro with fabulous Croque Musuer and cheese plate
I often stay in Times Square on business trips, and found this small intimate restaurant which offers a lovely mix of italian and french cuisine. The food is always delicious and the atmosphere is very cozy, inviting and romantic.
Wonderful ambience and delicious food! Great service. A special Valentine’s dinner pre-show.
Our waitress was inexperienced however, with time and patience on our part,she overcame her lack of experience and was helpful. The male staff was efficient, knowledgeable and very friendly and knowledgeable too. Joe and jill, Valentine experience-very good!.
Had very early dinner after a matinée Staff couldn’t have been more welcome. Dinner was excellent, good wine was suggested. Saju is one of the very best theater-district places to eat.
Absolutely amazing. From the old fashion, to the bread and olives, to the French onion coup (orgasmic) to the escargot, to the rabbit gnocchi. Unbelievably delicious!
Third time we’ve gone for brunch. That, I believe, speaks volumes.
We had a great pre theatre bite at this lively French spot. The service was attentive and the food was good. I had the pisto soup to start followed by a salmon tartare. My husband had the pate with a special risotto afterwards. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Delightful restaurant right in the middle of the theater district. Good food and ambiance.
The food was decent, service appropriate, and ambiance agreeable. It’s perfect for a post-theatre dinner. But not worth the trip from outside the theater district.
We ate here before seeing Beautiful on Broadway last week. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and attentive, the menu prices were reasonable considering the place is convenient to Broadway theaters and we'll be back again, hopefully soon. My wife had the filet au poivre which was sauced and cooked perfectly medium rare. My duck confit and mushroom pappardelle (a special) was excellent too. For pre-theater dining this place is a welcome alternative to the pricey and/or overcrowded tourist traps of the Theater District.
Very nice dinner before the show.
A must in midtown. You may not think a French restaurant is a place for a burger but Saju has the best burger in midtown. Chicken pillard is outstanding. You can't miss with the daily Rialto offering either. What are you waiting for? Try Saju Bistro today! Oh, don't forget to try their profiteroles before leaving. You'll use that as the bar for profiteroles in the rest of Manhattan. Pour on the hot cholocate now!!!
Lively setting for a pre-theater dinner. The cold February day I was there, one of the specials was a lentil soup—a perfect soup for the season, and more complex then some other lentil soups I’ve had. The other specials enjoyed that night were Red Snapper with clams, leeks, and mashed potatoes and a Grand Marnier soufflé. Everything was marvelous. The only word of caution is that all the portions are generous, but too good to leave much on the plate. Service—from both the hostess and the server—was excellent—cheerful and helpful, but not intrusive. The main reason I chose Saju was because it was right across the street from the theater I was going to afterward and less than a block from my hotel, but it’s worth going out of your way for, and I plan to return.
Very bizarre service experience. We had heard good things and suggested this place for pre theater with relatives. Four of us got there and I was late. They wanted to order and our server refused to let them order for me. He said other diners sometimes don’t pay for their meal and they couldn’t put my order in. I arrived shortly after and heard that the server was extremely belligerent and yelled at them for the bad behavior of others. He put my order in and later apologized for his diatribe. Food was very good but we probably won’t be back. Strange.
Excellent service and ambience. Scallops and Shrimp pasta special: seafood had no taste other than from red sauce. Key lime pie excellent.
Amazing restaurant , Delicious food.
Excellent waitress Eva. Good onion and anchovies tart. Excellent Vaqueras. Pistou soup had been in pot too long. Not good.
A good pre-theater choice for if ones enjoy French bistro food. We were pleasantly greeted by a friendly hostess and pleased with our table. Overall the food and service were both very good. The onion soup, thick with onions, was the best we've had in a while; and the escargot, obligingly loaded with garlic, was delicious. There was one dismaying mishap with regard to the main course: upon our inquiry, the waiter recommended the trout, one of the evening's specials, which he opined was very tasty. Hence my husband and I both immediately ordered the dish only to be told much to our dismay that the kitchen had out of the fish! So soon? This isn't acceptable. It was very early -only a little past 6:30 pm, in my experience much too early for a kitchen to run out of the evening special, which suggests poor planning or an unusually large consumption. Whatever the reason however, the status should have been properly communicated to the waiter so as to avoid the customers' disappointment. My husband ordered the sea bass as a substitute, which was good and I had the hanger steak with mashed potatoes and haricots vert, also quite good.
