Great dining experience

Typical small Manhattan eatery but the service and food was anything but typical. Excellent service, attentive and they made good suggestions. For appetizers we shared a salad and calamari which I didn’t try. I did have a few escargots and they were excellent, the butter and garlic were nice but... read more

Le Gigot, one of our local joints. Extremely charming with the old french style. Pretty traditional French dishes, friendly staff with just above ok taste food. It will be nice to see some updates in the dishes in order to gain excitement.

Visited on a recent trip to NYC. We selected this restaurant because we wanted to experience great cuisine, but wanted to be casual because it was the weekend of a massive winter storm so we wanted to go to a place that was jeans-friendly. Le Gigot was an excellent fit. It is quite a small restaurant, typical of Lower Manhattan,... More

What a great find hidden on a quiet street in Greenwich Village. Everything on the menu sounded delectable. The Escargot were rich and buttery, the duck confit was crispy and moist and the cassoulet hearty. We need to return soon to sample other items. The service was personal and impeccable. Definitely a place to try.

One of my favorite restaurants in NYC. I love the extremely intimate feel with the dozen or so tables, and the food is fantastic. The boeuf bourguignon is probably the best I've had outside of France and my wife always orders the duck, which just falls apart with a fork.

Wanting a change of pace in pre-theatre dining--i.e., getting away from the factory-like places in the theatre district--we decided to head down to the Village and choose something near the train right up to 42nd St. We loved it here! Le Gigot is located on a charming little street in the Village; there are several restaurants on the street and... More

About 30 seats, tiny space, very French. The entire package. Then taste the food. Excellent, period. Our table of four all raved about every dish with on exception, the lamb. Great, reasonable wine list tops off a great night. I will be back

My husband and I took our college age son to le Gigot on Sunday evening to celebrate a birthday and our last supper in Manhattan after a lovely visit. While the West Village has changed substantially since I'd lived here in the 80's, Cornelia Street remains a breath of fresh air with a handful of charming restaurants like le Gigot... More

On a Sunday at noon, we meandered to Chelsea before an afternoon at the theatre. Le Gigot is a charming, French bistro with delightful brunch for $29, (includes a wide selection of entrees, and a mimosa). We also chose a side of butternut squash soup and a plate of escargots in parsley, basil, and butter - no shells). The breads... More

Excellent French food in an intimate but comfortable jewel box of a restaurant. The crab cake appetizer was superb - full of crab meat without a potato or breading or small diced red pepper in site. My bouillabaisse was wonderful - perfectly cooked seafood in a rich, but not overly tomato-y, sauce. The seafood risotto was delightful. It had 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.
