This used to be a good French restaurant. No longer! Without going through the disappointing details the classic French duck was a dining insult. Chicken and Monk fish were both overdone and uninspired. All this at NYC prices. We will not be going back.

On a Sunday afternoon this is the place to go for a gourmet dinner. The food and atmosphere are perfect. The service was excellent.

We hadn't been to Ondine's for many years. Long ago when we were newlyweds we had used a Dining Out guide to try them out and so this was our return trip when we decided to try out their Sunday Early Dinner. The price was fixed at 42.00/pp and we ordered a bottle of wine to go with our Lunch/Dinner.... More

This establishment has been hit or miss of late. The food is rather consistent in quality, usually quite good but no longer fantastic. Menu doesn't change much, and evidently, the chef isn't interested in offering evening or seasonal specials. Decor is dated....very dated....as in it hasn't changed at all in 20 years. Service is slower than it needs to be;... More

We have been coming to Ondine for our special occasions for 20 years. It is our "reference" restaurant, the one to which we compare all others. We just love the quiet, cozy ambience--something like an older country house in Europe. We find the decor charming, not dated as mentioned by other reviewers. The food is consistently fabulous, definitely not anything... More

As Belgian, we love the gourmet French cuisine and we were really impressed by the food, everything was delicious but, I care also a lot by the decor and this was dated and disappointing. The service was fine. Overall a good but not an amazing experience.

Went here for our 6 year wedding anniversary. We are in our mid thirties. Parking was up and behind the restaurant which we found a bit strange, but go in the side door- we didn't- we thought it was for staff only! The place was almost empty that evening except for us and two other tables (party of 2 &... More

Dining here is a great experience. First the ambiance is amazing. It is so cozy and elegant. Its like dining in a French cottage in Danbury. The food is so thoughtfully made, feels like each dish was made with so much effort. The menu and selection are great as well with the best of French cuisine. Dessert was very good... More
