A wonderful meal

We had a lovely meal tonight and couldn't fault the food and the service, the only down side was that we went on Beaujolais Nouveau day so it was very busy.

Met the owner in a hotel bar a few days before we were looking for somewhere to eat. Seemed sensible to take a recommendation directly! We booked a table and confirmed it by phone a few hours before we were due to arrive. When we arrived no table booked - this was bad because I was travelling with elderly relatives... More

It was our last night in NYC. We were going to a Radio City Music Hall presentation. Having been to France my wife & I were nervous about a pre-event French meal since they can stretch out a meal to a two hour event. My wife & I received a warn welcome from the French hostess, who did everything except... More

Just off Eighth Avenue, this is like many small Paris restaurants, with essentially a “country” menu. The sweetbreads are the best I think I have had in years. The calves liver was excellent at lunch, but a bit overcooked at dinner (when they are very busy). The mussels were also excellent, and the wine selection had several good buys. Just... More

This is the best French food in NYC. The service is lovely and attentive, the food is delightful French comfort food, all the taste you expect and the price modest. MAKE RESERVATIONS, in true French style the tables are close together. We have been coming for 13 years and just love it. Suggestion is to make reservations on line for... More

This is a small, intimate, setting a few steps down from street level. Although it is very close to 8th Avenue, we did not notice any traffic noise during our meal. We had the Prix Fixe menu for lunch on a Monday afternoon around 2:00 PM. The restaurant was empty, although one couple arrived after us. The waiter was French... More

This is a restaurant we have visited several times over the past 10-15 years. The menu has stayed about the same (excpet of courses the prices). I must say I don't think the food is good as before. Service was good, execpt small language problem. Probably will not go back.

We discovered this unpretentious and comfortable restaurant in January when we were in town for an art exhibit and liked the restaurant back then. We found ourselves back in NYC this month to visit our niece and her colleague. After a Sunday matinee on B'way, we decided to take them to Tout Va Bien when we saw the daily specials... More

We had traditional French comfort food -veal blanket and beef bourgignone. Very tasty. You kind of feel like you're out in the countryside in France. Eclectic ambiance. Nice servers. Not fancy - welcoming!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
