Sublime chocolate cake

We went there on our last afternoon in New York and we all enjoyed it. I liked the cozy atmosphere, my gigot was good but not extraordinary, but then I am used to eating it at Sebillon´s in Neuilly France and that is impossible to beat. My husband liked his hanger steak and our friend had... read more

The restaurant is cute. Comfortable and had all the makings of a great culinary event. I love small French bistros and this place has all the hallmarks I look for. The wine list was perfect and we went about ordering, taking the waiters recommendation of the crab cakes. No filler, just pure fresh crab meat. We were off to a... More

We went here for the first time over Easter week-end and had a wonderful lunch. The tiny Bistrot made us feel we were back in Paris. The food was delicious especially the pate and the Steak Frites. Very fairly priced for quality French fare.

Adorable little French restaurant in the Village. Escargot were good but lukewarm. Hanger steak was very tender and quite good. Bill for one with two glasses of wine plus tip was over $100. Yikes.

I'd like to think that this wonderful little restaurant is something that I only recently discovered but it's been here for for nearly 20 years, so I'm confident that knowledgeable New Yorkers, denizens of the Village and Francophiles from all over have long known about this charming and cozy place. More of a bistrot than a French restaurant, the food... More

On a short visit to NYC my husband and I decided to try a casual French restaurant for a change of pace. Small and quaint, we felt we were back in an atmosphere of an amazing European restaurant. We were instantly greeted, coats hung and met with smiles and warmth. Specials and wine selections were explained with ease and we... More

Early dinner for five. Outstanding menu, superb presentation from the escargot to the Cabernet blackberry sorbet. You really can't go wrong!

We went on Valentine's evening and had a wonderful meal. Very French, very intimate, very good. Prices are mid-range, but considering the quality of the food it's a must if you like Southern French food.

Lovely place! The restaurant was so nice, really intimate space with antique mirrors, loved the atmosphere. The service was great, and the food was amazing. I had the scallops and fruit for dessert, my fiance had a beef casserole and tarte tartaine. The food was so fresh and perfectly cooked! Good prices as well, was so worth it either way.

My husband and I dined here to usher in 2015, and enjoyed it a great deal. Prior to our arrival but after I had made our reservation, I found out that good friends of ours dine here frequently, they recommended it highly. It's a small venue and one could order off a standard menu without the usual New Year's Eve... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
