Met friends for dinner. Excellent french food. Endive, beets and pair salad topped with gorgonzola cheese was delicious as was our second course foie gras terrine with quince marmalade. The bouillabaisse was very good. My husband ordered the venison shank melt in your mouth delish. The wait staff was attentive and accommodating. One of the entrees came with lentils which... More

I previously reviewed this restaurant but went back with my daughter and found it to be even better than before. Service was professional and timely and the only negative thing is that it is in a difficult place to park in. The food is reasonable and well thought out. I had Foie de veau(liver) perfectly done with beautiful potatoes and... More

I wanted it to be horrible because it is in a strip mall! My husband’s choice AND it was his birthday. What a snob I am. The owner greeted us and sat us immediately but had we been 5 minutes later, we would've waited 30 minutes plus. Every table was filled and I know why - THE FOOD OOOHHHHH la... More

Based on TripAdvisor we went here, walking distance from Super 8 in Nyack (spend money on food, not hotel rooms!) Unlikely location in strip mall with mixed martial arts, health spa, and computer repair. Despite Parisian pictures inside, Alain is from Alsace and menu has several Alsatian dishes as well as coq au vin - rare when we lived in... More

We've been there now at least 4 times and have quite enjoyed it each time. This time we went for restaurant week. We were pleased to see the place busy - they do such a great job on the food. We were quite happy with the restaurant week menu - we had the pate and French onion soup for starters,... More

I have been across the globe so when my husband wanted to go to this French Bistro for his birthday I got excited. It had been a very long time since I'd had some really good French food. However, we pulled into a strip mall area in Nyack, NY and I told him to keep going. I was NOT going... More

The location of this restaurant is not ideal but once you find it, it is worthwhile. They have a decent wine selection and a very nice menu. The food was nicely prepared and presented and the service was attentive but not breathing down your neck.

Five of us enjoyed a Friday night dinner at Alain's, a "classic" French bistro in an out of the way strip mall off of Rte. 59 in Nyack. All but one of us have dined there before. We shared several first courses including the mussels (meuniere), steak tartare, foie gras pate and zucchini flowers. All were excellent. Main courses included... More

Very well made French bistro food keeps me coming back. They have established themselves after a smaller local footprint. They produce top notch french bistro food, great twice cooked fires and all of the standards. They also do excellent coffee.

Discovered this restaurant last night. Great ambiance, friendly staff, and the food was delicious. I would recommend the short ribs and mussels. I plan to visit this establishment again.
