My family thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Le Gigot from the food to the service and the atmosphere. We planned this lunch after a visit to Macy's Santaland. It was a quick subway "f train" from Herald Square to West Village. We all enjoyed our choices (steak frites. Cassoulet, charcuterie), but we agreed that Nonno's boeuf bougognone and our toddler...

Le Gigot is a tiny French restaurant in Greenwich Village. Once you are seated you feel like you are in a small restaurant on the left bank of Paris. Le Gigot does not serve hard liquor, but has a selection of wines. The food is excellent. I had country pate, braised rabbit and crème brulee, then expresso. Everything was outstanding.The... More

Visited this great little restaurant for lunch on instructions from Gwyneth Paltrow's food guide app. The delightful French brasserie decor inside could easily make you forget you are in New York, except for everything being in English. The restaurant is small and intimate. We had a table for two and the single wait staff took excellent care of us. Good... More

Le Gigot is a little gem in the Village with delicious seductive food and very good service with much attention to detail Both Pamela and John are hospitable hosts and make you feel at home and all the dishes taste great but my fave are The Lamb feast, Crab cakes and Whole fish. Crab cakes have minimum fillers and are... More

Recently had a wonderfully prepared dinner with excellent service, so went back with friends for brunch. Not only is the French food delicious,we were actually able to have a conversation without screaming over noise. It's a little pricey, but not outrageous. Worth the extra cost. A tiny place, so I think a reservation may be necessary. I highly recommend it.

So...if you ever find yourself in Greenwich Village...Le Gigot is a must stop. It's small, the whole place seats about forty, so get a reservation or come early - like we did. Amazing food, and a half a block from Bleeker St.

If you're looking for an authentic french feel, this charming place will serve. The service helped make the meal a success as our pleasant waiter was knowledgeable about the wine and was helpful. We ordered the signature lamb dish (it is called "le Gigot"after all ) which was very tasty and served with flagot beans; boullabaise(forgive the spelling )- also... More

Our New York friends choose it and we loved it. A tiny intimate french bistro with authentic french dishes we almost all loved. The waiter was professional and offered short descriptions of wines and foods we asked about. We ordered, a frisée salad, oysters and a tomato goat cheese salad for appetizers. A boulliabaise, a couple roasted lamb and a... More
