The food quality was not very good. My wife had Duck Confit. It was dry and not very tasty. I had sea bass. It was smothered in a red sauce with onions. The fish was under cooked and I sent it back. It appeared to have been microwaved when it was returned to me. Unfortunately, the fish had very little... More

How charming this place is for a meal. We arrived after visiting the theatre and were able to get seated straight away. The menu is not vast but the quality is excellent. I had Coq au Vin and it was as good as some I'd had in a backstreet cafe in Boulogne many years ago. The service was very good... More

Loved this quaint restaurant on 46th and 8th in Manhattan. We were seated immediately and had very good service. I ordered the slow cooked beef noir. Excellent is the only word to describe this tender beef dish. For dessert we were served caramel flan that was awesome!! I definitely recommend this awesome Greek restaurant.

They always have pre-theatre specials, and even if you don't go the specials route, just tell them where you are going and they will get you out of there in plenty of time. Food was well above average, especially for Theatre District, but I baffled by the Athens reference in their name.

Had breakfast there today. Service was slow and inattentive. We had to chase for our breakfast as people after us were served. They said they had to make it again which was a lie I think since our order was pancakes and granola. I think they forgot to put the order through. Automatic gratuity of 18% which I think is... More

I had seafood linguini and was completely satisfied. My wife ordered Short Ribs and thought they were overdone. Her veggies were mushy! So, that is the way it goes ... 'If momma isn't happy, nobody is happy!' I liked the atmosphere and service was prompt. we didn't. Complain ... We finished our meal and went on our way.

My cousin recommended this place. It's right on the very busy 8th Avenue but inside is an oasis. My friend and I had our last meal in New York here. The food and the service are both very good. Prices are reasonable too, which was a bit surprising with the nice Parisian-inspired interior.

I was a little surprised at this restaurant. It looked to me from the street that it was going to be high-end prices and I'm always suspect when a NYC restaurant doesn't have a lot of people in it. But this place was great! In our group some ordered breakfast items that are offered all day - omelettes and french... More
