An easy subway ride from Times Square. Take the circle 7 train to Queens, get off at the first stop and you're there! Endive salad with blue cheese, pears and walnuts is to die for! An entree of Pan Seared Skate L'Arribiata with Pomme Anna was top notch! The waiter's recommendation of the Le Colombier Domaine 2012 was spot on.... More

We had dinner here on a Friday night. The restaurant was full and the staff seemed overworked and frazzled. It took 15 minutes after we ordered wine for the drinks to arrive. Two in our party ordered the last two servings of one of the daily specials. About a minute before our dishes arrived we were told that one of... More

We stopped by this restaurant when visiting our son in Long Island City. We were pleasantly surprised as some of the previous reviews were not so nice. Very reasonable prices and the French staff were very nice and friendly. We stopped by for brunch and my Quiche Lorraine was really good! My husband had a proscuitto panini which was also... More

I ordered eggs Benedict which came under cooked on a raw English muffin. The head waiter was rude. I will probably try the restaurant again and order something else.

Charming small store front restaurant outside the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. Very reasonable prices especially for the entrees. Duck $22, Beef Bourguignon $19 Skate $ 17 and chicken $16.50 Very good service from a young French staff.

Love this place and the friendly employees. Authentic French. Everything they make is delicious, but if there's something in the menu with pastry, go for it!

After spending 220 dollars and paying 14 percent tip, I was chased as I left restaurant because tip was not enough. It was embarrassing and I was disgusted...ruined entire evening. 25 dollar tip was reasonable... Food was ok...not great and service was ok. Nothing special ...so note to restaurant: tip is discretionary. I don't recommend this restaurant to anyone and... More

A truly terrific French meal, for an extremely reasonable price. A friend who spends much of her time in Paris loves the place. As in Paris, the service can range from fun and friendly to haughty. Close quarters, which has been the source of some very interesting and enjoyable conversations with neighbors. Worth the trip from any borough, and just... More
