We went with the fixed price menu since we had a 7:00pm show, You get an appetizer, main course and dessert. Enjoyed the crab cakes for the first course. Nice selections for the remaining two. Excellent service but a bit pricy at $106 per person (plus tip).

My wife and I were introduced to quenelles fifty years ago at La Grenouille and we revisited again today for the first time. In the intervening half century almost all of the La and Le French restaurants in New York have reached their zeniths and have disappeared. Only La Grenouille continues to flourish and for anyone still appreciating genuine French... More

You will feel like you are in another world when you step into this absolutely lovely restaurant. Masses of flower arrangements everywhere, you will feel like you're in a garden...The service and food is second to none. It is truly amazing that everything is perfect, the food is out of this world, and the atmosphere is intoxicating.

This is a beautiful restaurant with amazing flower arrangements, terrific service, and classic French food. While the mirrors in the dining room are nice, there are a few too many in the restroom.

Believe me. I tried hard to find fault with this restaurant as the tab exceeded the cost of my sport jacket. But I failed. Magnificent is an understatement.to describe the dining experience.here.

When every dish is perfect of its kind, when service is impeccable, when setting and flowers are exquisite, and when Phillipe Masson, general manager, takes the time to greet and charm you—even if you are not a celebrity– then you must be at La Grenouille. And if you are also fortunate enough to be seated in the beautiful upstairs multi-level... More

I hate to buck the trend, and the dripping praises for this restaurant, but we were simply not impressed and somewhat disappointed considering the glowing reviews we read. For starters, no other French restaurants had any availability nearby (and there are some great ones), this should have been the first clue. The price is not wildly unreasonable at $104, that...

Perfect service in a perfectly elegant, calm, cheerful, gorgeous room (we ate downstairs). Attentive servers were never overbearing and never made our party of four feel rushed; the prix-fixe menu was $104 per person, expensive but not at all unreasonable, and the wines were expensive but not absurdly so. We celebrated a friend's birthday and anniversary and felt as if... More

Returning to La Grenouille for an anniversary dinner after several years, I found everything as I had left it, especially the magnificent floral arrangements that provided splashes of color to the glowing, sophisticated ambiance. Ladies and gentlemen, young and old, almost all appropriately dressed, were engaging in dignified conversation. And, of course, the attentive and interested waitstaff made the food... More

Five decades of grace and elegance and still this beautiful restaurant still feels fresh, possibly because of the spectacular flowers and soft glow, but certainly because the wait staff and Maitre d' whose careful attentions feel personal and sincere. I wish they could train the rest of America's wait staff. It was a splendid visit.
