Tout Va Bien Ratings and Reviews
Great pre-theatre authentically French restaurant with choice of a price fixed or a la carte menu. This restaurant caters to theatre goers and knows how to get you out in time to walk to your performance. Delicious home-made Paris neighborhood type menu with lots of great choices for everyone at affordable prices. Last night we shared the escargots (perfectly seasoned with lots of garlic), coq au vin (wonderful sauce and large portion), moules/frites (as good as Nice) & Chicken Cordon Bleu. All great dishes, good choice of wine & sweet desserts. We have been here many times and will certainly return.
Salmon and beef bourbornone were excellent. Steak was very tough and had little flavor. Worst of all employees smoked in the kitchen at least twice during our dinner and the restaurant wreaked of cigarettes in the front dining room. This made our meal unpleasant. A loud, argumentative business meeting was going on in the front corner when we arrived and continued during our meal but voiced got lower after 15-20 minutes of some loud talk and even shouting. Not pleasant during that time.
Had higher expectations after reading a review online. Food was average at best and that is being generous. Rundown and tired inside. We were the only table in the entire restaurant from 12-1 on a busy shopping Saturday in NYC and I could see why. Wine by the glass was limited and terrible. Definitely not worth seeking out as we did but food was serviceable. Sad because I wanted this place to be good. I don’t see them staying in business much longer without some major changes.
We had a wonderful mid-week lunch before visiting MoMA. The food, service and ambiance were just right. Tout Va Bien is one of the few remaining French restaurants near the theatre district, with traditional French fare - you feel like you're in France. Great location, very good value, highly recommended.
I love French restaurants, but I ended up not loving this one. It was just okay and, looking back, I wish I'd picked someplace else to go. The staff is very welcoming and attentive, but the food is rather lackluster. Placed on the table was a dish of celery, carrot sticks and radishes, which the menus were rested upon, so that precluded eating them. The charcuterie was "eh", served without toast points, but they eventually brought some cold bread. The steak tartare was too chunky for my liking and not minced well. The plate was almost identical to the charcuterie, with the exception of toast points. I wish I had known or I would have mixed things up a bit differently. (There are only so many cornichons one can eat in one sitting without growing weary of them.) The price was reasonable, however, which made the experience less regrettable. There was a private party of about 24 people on one side of the small dining room, which made it impossible to hear my dining partner or the wait staff. Perhaps on a quieter night, the food might have been better?
We turned up at Tout Va Bien for our 6:45pm booking. We were told there was a table, but then told to just wait at the bar. After 15 minutes I asked what was happening with our tavle, as we had a play to be at, so we had specifically booked a table in time for the show. They said that the table woud be soon, but gave no idea of how long, or why we were waiting, even though we'd booked. There were free tables in the restaurant. By 7:15 we had to leave, so we walked out.
Don't go here if you actually want a table at the time you booked.
We felt lucky to get the corner booth which was perfect (noise wise) for conversation with long time friends (relatives) who don't see each other often. Appreciated that you could accommodate our early arrival and loved the added dessert and sangria at the end. We had a delightful dinner and were glad we didn't have to talk over a lot of noise. We could have done without the TV but I guess others "need" it. Thanks for a pleasant experience before the play.
The place had quick and very friendly service. The vibe was very cool, with old school French music and pictures hanging up. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Towards late evening great flamenco music and sangria came out. Recommend it for dates and even friends hanging out.
Great meal at Tout Va Bien! Bread and crudités were served to start the meal. We tried the lemonade beer which was a specialty - it was unique and excellent. The waiter treated us like regulars, providing free pommes frites and a custard-like dessert. No idea why, but it definitely elevated our experience. The atmosphere is very "homey", yet linen and dining utensils are upscale. The restaurant has a long history, and I can see why. Overall, food was great but did not blow my mind (hence the 4 starts). Great meal! I would come again, and I do recommend it.
We’ve been going here after a broadway show for a number of years as it’s close by the theatre district and away from all the hustle tucked away in a local neighborhood. It’s quiet for good conversation to relax and enjoy some French cuisine. Food portions are modest for the money so your tummy will be very full of happiness!...look forward to visiting again!
Wonderful French restaurant, great place for a date special occasion or just satisfying the desire for great French cuisine! I had a lovely dinner with my wife and daughters, we really enjoyed the food, atmosphere, wine and service. The staff were excellent and really made the experience complete with their attention.
Simply not worth the cost - the bill for a party of 2 was over $120. It's a cute place and the staff were all very pleasant, but sadly the food was a disappointment. The escargot tasted mainly of salt. There were large, flabby, gag-inducing pieces of chicken skin in the coq au vin. The steak-frites was meh. The only star was dessert - a delicious chocolate mousse.
My wife and I had stopped at Tout Va bien after a show. We had read the open table reviews which we normally trust. The restaurant is a bit tired.The room was crowded and while the menu sounded interesting the food was far less so. The service was friendly but there are any number of restaurants of equal value that are far better. We didn't think the quality matched up for the dishes presented. My coq au Vin dish was heavily sauced and not particularly note worthy. Anyway it's convenient to the Theater but that's about all I can find to recommend the restaurant.
Fantastic traditional French cuisine at very reasonable prices. I was just in Paris and the food here equals the quality and is a better value. Skate was cooked perfectly with a delicious sauce and beautiful presentation. Very pleasant staff. A great dining experience.
Better than ever and I have been eating at Tout Va Bien for over 30 years. I hadn't been in a long time so I didn't know what to expect. But I had no need to be worried. The food is magnificent and it is quiet and small and it is now my "go to" place again, after all these years.
My family has been going to this restaurant for ages, and we are now enjoying taking our adult kids. Food is authentic and excellent, service very friendly and efficient, great festive ambiance, with owners Jean Pierre and Monique very pleasant and making you feel at home. Good wine selection with recommendations from our waitress spot on. All this topped off by reasonable prices. This is the very definition of a hidden gem!
