Wonderful food, wine, and service in this quaint bistro in the West Village. Food was inventive and excellent. Since the restaurant is quite small, get there very early or make a reservation.

This charming, quaint French restaurant is located in a lovely little neighborhood in the West Village. We ate here on a busy Saturday night and had a wonderful meal; it felt like we were back in a little town in the south of France. The service was impeccable, we never felt rushed and it was quiet enough to be able... More

Had a fabulous meal at Le Gigot. This quaint little eatery provided one of the best meals we've had in a long time! Staff was excellent and friendly. We ordered the duck confit, the rabbit and the risotto with lobster, crab and shrimp - all expertly prepared. Desserts were equally as good. The only issue I have with this restaurant... More

Finally, a French themed restaurant that serves up authentic French Country cuisine. Everyone in our party of 4 enjoyed a different entree and thankfully decided on sharing our dinners with everyone else at the table. Food was delicious, wine was on point and service was outstanding. Didn't want to leave.

Dinner was delicious from the first nibble brought out as we visited and had before dinner cocktail. No rushing us to order and complete our meal so they could "turn the table". I... More

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
