Flee chain restaurants. Reject the ordinary. Enjoy the extraordinary at Le Gigot, calabash West Village ambience with timelessly delicious food at appropriate prices.

We had a wonderful lunch at Le Gigot! Soft shelled crabs are on season and they know how to prepare them! A few bottles of a delicious crisp rose, lovely salads, crab cakes, delicious crusty bread and soft butter, yumm. Le Gigot is adorable, you really do feel transported to a little French bistro. The staff is friendly and very... More

The restaurant is small but cosy and the staff were friendly. The atmosphere was inviting, warm and relaxed. I highly recommend the lamb and I really enjoyed my crême brulée.

6 of us chose Le Gigot for a final dinner out after a short New York stay. The restaurant had been recommended by our guide on a New York Food tour. A good choice. The restaurant has limited space and we crowded into the tight entry and bar while waiting for our table. The staff were welcoming, humourous, (much joking... More

We see a French movie in the IFC and, fittingly enough, decide to have diner in a French place. Le Gigot seems to be one, so we go in for an early diner (6:30) and are offered a choice of table close to the door or in the back. We pick the back since it’s gotten chilly outside and I... More

I've been in NYC forever yet this is the first time I've eaten at Le Gigot. Quiet, cozy, wonderful food, I could have sworn we were in Paris. I recommend this little spot on Cornelia Street in the West Village.

Le Gigot is my favorite place in NYC. It is unpretentious, warm and inviting on lovely Cornelia Street in the West Village. I was introduced to the restaurant by some friends who live in the Village and have been going to this special place for many years, last year. Since then I have had dinner there 5 times. Each experience... More

I read very good reviews of LeGigot on Yelp and had tried to get to this place on the last few trips to the city. Finally this past weekend my wife and I had the opportunity to have a later dinner than our 5-6 PM "dinner with children" time. We split frisee salad, cod, bouillabaisse, risotto and broccoli soup. We... More

We picked this restaurant because of its Zagat rating for best french bistrot in NYC. While the place has a great bistrot ambiance and the staff is very friendly and good I think the food was very good but not excellent as anticipated. I had a cassoulet which would be fantastic for someone who never had cassoulet, but got to... More
