Very Good French Food - One Bad Thing!

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... read 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

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 risotto. The best thing... 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

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.
