If All You Have is a Glass of Water....

The food, of course, is wonderful...but the room is beyond compare and the service sublime. I took my wife for our anniversary and we couldn't have made a better choice for a celebration if you want CLASS, and this place is it. Don't forget your coat, gentlemen, and I only saw one guy sans tie... read more

We walked in and the first thing that I noticed where the flowers. Some of them four feet tall. The service was excellent. We asked for advice on the wine and were rewarded with a bottle that matched our request. The meal was excellent and the soufflé was superb. I will return!

La grenouille offers a french diner experience. Roger and its staff will offer you a good service. Wine list is also nice. The food was good from appetizer to main course. It was my second visit, twice was upstairs, whit the fire place.

I had a very pleasant lunch here today with my wife. The service was generally obliging; the food was solidly good; the ambience, charming. But these things were not what we had hoped for. We had wanted something more: we had wanted fine dining. What we got was two levels lower, good in its way, but not good enough. The... More

My husband and I had a birthday dinner there. The food was excellent except the bread The bread was dry and not flavorful. The service was welcoming but we felt slightly rushed. The big issue was how jammed we were into the banquette. We were in a corner. I was closer to the people at the next table than I... More

With gratitude that La Grenouille still prevails. As you enter you are greeted by a gentleman who escorts you into a sumptuous mirrored great room. Floral profusion soars in massive scale, soft golden light emanates. Silk pleated café shaded lamps have their own glow, nestled atop white tablecloths. Certain folks sit side by side on red velvet banquettes. We were... More

The restaurant is beautifully appointed. Upon entering, you are greeted at the door where they check your coat. The Maitre D' then greets you. As our table was not quite ready we waited at the tiny 8 seat bar. The bartender was extremely gracious and very gregarious. He made me a great martini and told us stories about growing up... More

It doesn't get any better than this! A beautiful setting, respectful, informed service, and superlative food. Excellent, flattering lighting, no music, well spaced tables; all as it should be.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
