Our visit was excellent! I had a fish special that was prepared perfectly and an excellent Comte soufflé. The champagne and wine were excellent, and the service was perfect. We will be back.

We enjoyed a non-hurried pre-theater dinner here. Not crowded, polite service, good food. Would go back.

This is one of Alain Ducasse's place that did not fail. this lovely spot on 55th street offers excellent prix fixe deals. Their brunches are good values as well and they can cook liver like no one else. Their kitchen has for years put out very good food with fair prices.

Quaint decor and furnishing. Affordable prices. Decent wine list. Several French classic dishes. Wonderful breads. Tasty macaroons. Attentive service. A pleasant surprise in upper midtown Manhattan.

We had lunch at Benoit. We enjoyed everything - lobster salad, green salad, and cassoulet. The wines by the glass were delicious. We were happy they included some new world wines along with the old world wines by the glass. The service was impeccable.
