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

Hidden on Cornelia street, this small restaurant decorated in a 'Bistrot' style offers exquisite food, served by friendly, attentive and helpfull staff. Products are from the highest quality, even the bread is homemade and the winelist is great. We had a great evening and were pleasantly surprised with the bill as well. If I were living in NYC, I would... More

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

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.
