Wondeful French enclave. Food is very good, including special prix fixe and early bird specials. Warm, friendly, welcoming staff and bartenders. We've never had a bad time there, whether hanging out at the bar or dining at one of the tables with friends.

I went there to dinner, it's not the best French restaurant I have ever been, but food was nice, price reasonable and the staff was French and very nice. It was a good experience. the restaurant is small and intimate. I will go back.

If you are interested in an accommodating restaurant management, this is not the place for you. If you have found this place on line and it offered a glass of wine with mussels and frites, don't believe it. They said they have changed their menu and do not offer the wine with it anymore. When we told the manager that... More

This is a wonderful, comfy neighborhood French restaurant, where much of the staff speaks French. The food was all enjoyable but we loved the mussels and the pommes frites. We felt totally relaxed and well looked after. We definitely plan to return on our next trip to NYC.

Simply put: great French restaurant, great food, very good service, really authentic (as opposed to a multitude of faux French sounding NYC joints), affordable. Our French server was excellent. The wine list amazes with its budget-priced quality wines. The food is a classical solid French bistro fare of a high quality. Our charcuterie board was probably the best we ever... More

My wife and I had an early 6:30 reservation on a Sunday night. When we arrived the restaurant was not busy, but quickly filled up. We were warmly greeted by the wait staff. Menu is traditional French Bistro with fish, chicken, beef and duck options. We each ordered a different cut of steak medium rare, both with pomme frite. Meat... More

We were looking for a nice brunch place in UES that's not too noisy or hectic. This place was definitely it! A friendly place with very good food.

Have visited several times (to the point where the waiters automatically speak to me in French now); everything we have tried so far has been very good. Standouts include the foie gras appetizer,the salade Nicoise and the salmon with ratatouille. Wine list is short but well thought out and the flight offerings are good value.

A great addition to the UES. Food is always excellent and the service is very good. Great value for money. Had the house hamburger and would recommend. Ratatouille was very good as were the salads.

Our first visit. We were told there is a nice jazz duo. They play from 6-9, and are quite good. We were there on a bitterly cold night; so restaurant was quiet. Food was good bistro fare. Service is very good too.
