Good - not Great

Three of us had an early dinner at LeGigot. The restaurant is of a nice, small size in the heart of the West Village. Warm ambiance. The restaurant was quiet when we sat down, and the service was excellent; it got busy as the night went on. (We tasted two wines before purchasing a bottle.) The... read more

Yummy! I had salad to start and then the scallops. My husband had trout. Both were delicious. Good wine, it was a claret. Yummy cappuccino. Nice ambiance. Love the old decor. Great service. Friendly staff.

My husband, two friends and I dined here recently. We all enjoyed our meals. Appetizers of soup and crab cakes were very good. Entrees of trout, chicken and risotto were delicious. And we topped it all off with apple tart tatin and the warm chocolate cake. Yum! Just be careful - they only take cash and Amer Express! No Visa... More

This is a great place to eat in NoHo. Could be tight when full, we went at about 6:00 on a beautiful night and it was great. Good food and wine, a little pricey

Food here was very good. Solid French Dishes served well. It wasn't as good as the food back in France, or at Le Baratin around the corner on Greenwich Ave, but it was pretty good. The bad thing here was that they don't take VISA or MC and that they didn't really advertise this. I couldn't find anywhere on open... More

Very small and quaint little French bistro in the West Village. My husband and I were seated as soon as we arrived for our reservation. Our server was very nice and gracious. The best thing we enjoyed was the crab cake, so I would definitely recommend this as a starter. We will be returning on our next trip to nyc.... More

Cosy eaterie that makes a fair attempt at French Bistro fare. Crab cake as good as it gets. Beef Bourgignon rich and homely. Bouillabaise - tomato based rather than pastis and saffron. But good all the same. Deserts didn't disappoint. WIne list OK.

If you are going for just appetizers and dessert I would highly recommend Le Gigot but if an entree is important to you I wouldn't recommend it. The Fava bean appetizer was delicious and the Carrot soup tasty but all of our entrees fell flat lacking flavor and presentation. The creme brûlée was a great finish!

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

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.
