Chilly, rainy night- felt immediately cozy. Nice menu- quick service. Food is acceptable but nothing outstanding. We were in and out before long( not at all crowded so the rush seemed rather silly).

We enjoyed a terrific Prix-fixe menu for lunch before the theater. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was charming. The Mussels delighted my friends who delivered rave reviews.
Desserts were too good for words. Service was friendly and efficient. I think we're going back next week.

Very authinic French country food! Small quaint place....would have been more appealing without the large screen television. The one at the bar was fine but the large one should be replaced with a nice French paining or poster. Our waitress was pleasant but didint have much personality.
Our food though was excellent, nice portions and reasonably priced for NYC. We will definitely return!

We went to celebrate my husbands 75th Birthday. Everything was just great. My only complaint would be that I was charged for a coffee I never got, but it was only 4.00 so I guess that was not so bad. I should have looked at the bill more carefully.

It was uneven quality and a full meal for two with wine $130 + tip, so I expect better for the price. The main course was nice, but the salad and desserts were just okay. We have been before and notice there are repeat customers, but not sure we will be back. The restaurant could use a little TLC, too. The benches are in need of an update. Wish I could give a better review, because I want to like it.

Tired French bistro. Menu different from online menu.
Their pomme frittes remain stellar, otherwise food average.
At least not busy and this quiet so we could talk

We felt like we were transported to Paris! It’s a cozy restaurant with friendly service. The food and wine were fantastic! I had Chicken Cordon Bleu, my friends had the beef stew and Coq su Vin. We were all extremely statisfied.

One of the few authentic French Bistros that used to populate the theatre district. Tasty, well done. The food is not fabulous but it is always acceptable; the portions are more than adequate and one can eat three tasty courses in an hour and 15 minutes before a theatre curtain. Had my birthday there about five years ago; it was terrific.

I booked this place via Open Table last minute prior to a Broadway show. My group was all very pleased with the authentic, French comfort food. Our server was charming and attentive. This is definitely a keeper for my pre-theatre restaurant list.

I have been to Tout Va Bien a number of times over the past 20 years. I cannot say that I ever had a bad experience, either. The food is always delicious. The service is always fantastic. My friends and I love the quaintness of the dining room. One of them says it reminds her of being in Paris, so they're definitely doing something right there. I noticed this time one of the women servers is no longer there. She worked there for many years and I guess she retired. I tried to ask a newer server, but he wasn't too sure about her whereabouts. But, the waiter we had this time was very friendly, helpful and very easy on the eyes. ;o) I have recommended Tout to a number of friends and I hope they've taken my advice and gone there to have a wonderful meal. I will return again...and again...and again.

They were out of the beer, appetizer and entree I wanted (a French restaurant without Salad Nicoise)?

Waiter's language barrier was so bad that we could barely understand each other. Service was disjointed....no water, no coffee refill.

Not worth it.

Still charming after all these years, with French bistro classics that are soul warming. The endive salad is something that you’ve had in France or Belgium and the kidneys in mustard sauce might be your French grandmother’s. There nothing remarkable here, but it’s a heartwarming reminder of the days when New Yorkers flocked to little French places in the West 50s.

I have been to Tout Va Bien many times. And I have great memories of our meals there. Excellent service, fun vibe. Not polished, but real NY. But last time we were there was about 3-4 years ago. This time around was terrible. Place was almost empty. Food was not even passable. So sad to see the decline of this old stand by. We won’t be back.

Reunion of business friends, one from Atlanta, one from Dallas, one from London- and one New Yorker.

We wanted a place with European atmosphere and good food.

Not disappointed- food was excellent. Well-served. Highly recommend the smoked duck appetizer- exceptional.

Our quartet selected steak, pasta, and seafood entrees - each was well-prepared.

Limited wine list, but appropriate to the food.

"Continental" service- not over-bearing, but attentive.

Will return definitely.

It is a small restaurant, tables close together - you cannot help overhearing conversations of other diners.

I felt like I was at a French bistro in Provence. My meal was delicious and reminded me of my visits to France - good French country comfort food. The fixed menu was a bargain for Manhattan. I added the foie gras, which was good. The place is small, which added a cozy vibe. I dined alone, but was seated near friendly people who engaged me in conversation - if you are looking for privacy from other tables you'll need to talk in a whisper. My waiter was conscious of the fact that I was headed to a show and paced the meal accordingly. I'm looking forward to returning to this place when I am in New York the next time!
