No waiting for Sunday brunch here and immediately felt welcomed by friendly staff, who made room for us two and my niece who had time only for coffee. Great service was followed by excellent food - salmon crepes and french toast. We were clearly welcome to stay as long as we wanted, and were very happy to sip coffee and... More

My hubby and I went to the restaurant on the recommendation from my sister. My hubby had the mussel and chowder soup. He adored it. Months later he still dreams about that soup. The restaurant itself is tiny. Cramming yourself into your seat is well worth it.

The food was good, the service was OK, the space is nice, but let's say, intimate. In other words, go here for a tasty meal, but if you are discussing the results of your colonoscopy, all of the neighboring tables will know.

Stopped for the pre fixe lunch, very satisfied with the selection.The carrot ginger soup de jour was delicious and the ham and swiss omlette was very tasty! Had not been in for lunch before but will definitly come back again. Dinner has been very good in the past and now we know lunch is equally good!!!

We wandered past this little place and liked the look of the menu, so went in. It's a very attractive space, warm and cosy on a freezing cold night, and service is charming and attentive. The food is excellent. Really good. We had one main course each, two had the boeuf bourgignon and I had the lamb sausage on couscous... More

We hopped into a cab after our Broadway show for a late dinner at Chez Lucienne. The atmosphere was nice, with an excellent live band. The food was delicious! Friendly staff made our stay pleasant. The only down side was the heat! It was so hot! I suggest you wear layers. Otherwise we had a terrific time.

Busy french bistro style restaurant. The first time we were impressed even though it was very noisy and very dark (had to read the menu with a candle)! Food was very good and well presented. We visited a couple of days later to repeat the experience and were served a starter with some of the ingredients missing whilst the desserts... More

This restaurant is in the busiest area of Harlem. Lenox/Malcolm X ave and the popular 125th Street Trendy decoration. Extremely friendly and efficient staff with a healthy sense of humour. There is a sidewalk terrace for al fresco dining. The menu is of a simple typical bistro style. White linen tablecloths. We had snails, grilled tomato and cheese as starters,... More
