Still one of the best

Still one of the best restaurants in NYC. The decor, service and yes, the Food is outstanding. Get a table where you can side side by side to see all the other goings on. I highly recommend the sweet breads and souffle's.

Been to Paris a couple of times, and stepping into La Grenouille transported my husband and I back to Paris. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The decor is very Parisian and the ambiance is very cozy and romantic. I highly recommend La Grenouille for a romantic dinner date.

I had a lunch with my wife. I did not know the jacket was mandatory here, and the restaurant borrowed me a jacket. Funny thing was that there were a few other gentlemen who were wearing the restaurant’s jackets like me since outside was already hot in summer. The restaurant was decorated with lots of flowers and the paintings like... More

This is one of the most beautiful restaurants in NYC due to their famous floral arrangements. Everything is excellent .. food, service, experience. It is pricey, but worth every penny for a very special evening.

My husband and I went to Le Grenouille for my birthday. The service was incredible, the decor was impressive, and the wine was delicious. The food, however, was bland at best. My sea bass wasn't anything special, and our dessert soufflés (one each chocolate and pistachio) were overcooked. With so many great restaurants in the city, we won't be returning... More

This is by far one of the most beautiful restaurants that I have ever seen. The flowers are always so perfect and set the mood for the entire meal. The service is wonderful as is the food. My sister and I enjoyed an outstanding meal at lunchtime and we were so glad to see that it was still as wonderful... More

All of the food was perfectly cooked, the sauces beautifully balanced and the restaurant itself is stylish with a timeless charm. Best of all is the service, attentive without being intrusive, helpful and friendly. All together they made it a very romantic and special occasion. There is a dress code so jacket and collar.

This is a spectacular French restaurant in Midtown New York. The private room upstairs was beautifully decorated. Classical charm in an old world style with fresh flowers and unique architecture. The food was fantastic from the lobster ravioli to the filet mignon to the apple tart. I would love to return over and over. The location was a convenient stroll... More

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.
