Lovely place! The restaurant was so nice, really intimate space with antique mirrors, loved the atmosphere. The service was great, and the food was amazing. I had the scallops and fruit for dessert, my fiance had a beef casserole and tarte tartaine. The food was so fresh and perfectly cooked! Good prices as well, was so worth it either way.

My husband and I dined here to usher in 2015, and enjoyed it a great deal. Prior to our arrival but after I had made our reservation, I found out that good friends of ours dine here frequently, they recommended it highly. It's a small venue and one could order off a standard menu without the usual New Year's Eve... More

Hidden on Cornelia street, this small restaurant decorated in a 'Bistrot' style offers exquisite food, served by friendly, attentive and helpfull staff. Products are from the highest quality, even the bread is homemade and the winelist is great. We had a great evening and were pleasantly surprised with the bill as well. If I were living in NYC, I would... More

My family thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Le Gigot from the food to the service and the atmosphere. We planned this lunch after a visit to Macy's Santaland. It was a quick subway "f train" from Herald Square to West Village. We all enjoyed our choices (steak frites. Cassoulet, charcuterie), but we agreed that Nonno's boeuf bougognone and our toddler...

Le Gigot is a tiny French restaurant in Greenwich Village. Once you are seated you feel like you are in a small restaurant on the left bank of Paris. Le Gigot does not serve hard liquor, but has a selection of wines. The food is excellent. I had country pate, braised rabbit and crème brulee, then expresso. Everything was outstanding.The... More

Visited this great little restaurant for lunch on instructions from Gwyneth Paltrow's food guide app. The delightful French brasserie decor inside could easily make you forget you are in New York, except for everything being in English. The restaurant is small and intimate. We had a table for two and the single wait staff took excellent care of us. Good... More

Le Gigot is a little gem in the Village with delicious seductive food and very good service with much attention to detail Both Pamela and John are hospitable hosts and make you feel at home and all the dishes taste great but my fave are The Lamb feast, Crab cakes and Whole fish. Crab cakes have minimum fillers and are... More

Recently had a wonderfully prepared dinner with excellent service, so went back with friends for brunch. Not only is the French food delicious,we were actually able to have a conversation without screaming over noise. It's a little pricey, but not outrageous. Worth the extra cost. A tiny place, so I think a reservation may be necessary. I highly recommend it.
