Grabbed an evening meal - enjoyed the special of the day along with a couple of beers. Friendly and prompt service - the wine expensive per glass hence the beer on the night Recommend it for a change of fare - good experience

What a nice surprise! Great atmosphere, wonderful prompt service so we could make our curtain call, authentic French cuisine, a truly enjoyable meal. Perfect before or after a show. Don't skip dessert!

My husband and I dined here one evening as it was close to our hotel and it looked inviting. This was during the World Cup and the staff and a few locals were watching it on TV in the back area of the restaurant. Other diners present were local women who occasionally had dinner before heading to Broadway shows. It... More

Sought this place out in the hopes of getting an authentic Paris bistro experience. That it was - I was only English-speaking American in the place. Very lively crowd, very warm greeting. I was solo, so took a tiny spot in the corner. The service was slow, the server was sweet but not very on top of things. Ordered duck... More

This is my father's favorite theater district restaurant in NYC. Fantastic food each time, tucked away down a few stairs off 51st street between *th and 9th avenue. The Coq au Vin is always excellent but also try the specials. I had baby rack of lamb. Service was quick and you are ready for the evening show.

1 room bistro located below street level. Intimate, tight quarters. We enjoyed dinner after PM theater matinee. Easy walking distance from theater district. Waitresses all speak English and French and do a great job. Very pleasant. I had French bread, grilled clams with bacon and onions, a fillet mignon with bernaise sauce, French fries and creme Brûlée . My companion... More

Atmosphere: The deco is interesting; not really French, but somehow fits the rather small place Food: a lot of typical French food, tasty and we'll prepared. The Tarte Tartin was especially good. Princes are actually pretty good considering the area. Service: was inconsistent but not necessarily bad, just not super good either. It seemed that a lot of people were... More

This is one of those classic New York theatre restaurants which has developed an enthusiastic following for years. The staff and atmosphere speak French, the food is French and good and plentiful. The three course prix fixe menu is well worth it. The staff does its best to make you feel at home.

Tout va Bien is a sweet little place with good food and fabulous mussels. So fabulous that we asked for more good crusty baguette to sop up the sauce. Very inexpensive for NYC and friendly service. There's a little surprise treat at the end of dinner in the form of a bowl of sangria served a la help yourself. The... More

My husband and I had a delicious pre-theater lunch here -- we are Francophiles and enjoy nothing more than a traditional French bistro, quirks and all. The menu is compact but offers everything you would expect -- escargot, pate, boeuf bourguignon, coq a vin, creme brûlée, etc. While the service was slightly slow, the warm, relaxed atmosphere made for a...
