The appetizer was very good bu the roast chicken was dry and tasteless. Our server disappeared from the time we placed our order until we got our bill. the maitre D' did stop by after we had finished the entrees and we told him honestly about the chicken whereupon he comped us some nice desserts. Had he not done so,... More

Once you go through its revolving door, it is, as if, you were teleported to a top notch bistro in Paris. It is truly outstanding; you won't even remember that you are still in NYC. This restaurant was recommended to us by the Plaza Hotel and I am glad that they did. The cuisine is excellent and the prices very... More

Fantastic service from the staff on a busy evening. Our orders were taken promptly and the courses came in perfect timing. Our meals were delicious and all that you would expect from an Alain Ducasse restaurant. The dining room was just a tad noisy for my liking, however, everything else was spot in. I'd definitely return!

Good French Food in a lovely setting. The service was excellent and all of our feed was very good. Its located across the street from the City Center, near Carnegie Hall and not far from Central Park. The noise level was acceptable and they're on Open Table.

Very good true French cuisine in an elegant atmosphere. Given it is a Alain Ducasse restaurant you would expect only the best. Simple options for entrees but everything is done in a very French manner. The clientele is more on the older side at least when my daughter and I were there one Saturday evening in November. I would definitely... More

With a preference for lighter French foods, I felt right at home or perhaps, even in Paris here. I chose the poultry dish n it was roasted to perfection. Excellent side dishes too. Desserts looked s scrumptious. Next time for sure! We saved desserts for after the show at Carnegie Deli. A perfect place for before or after a Broadway... More
