BETTER GO FOR LUNCH

We had found this little French restaurant during a previous visit in NY City and had eaten lunch there nearly every day.It was delicious and very reasonable in price. This time, we went for supper and found it more expensive and not much different from the lunch menu. The food is definitively... read more

As we made our way into the restaurant the first thing we noticed on the window outside was the B health rating which made me pause. I know it's not a C or a D - in which case, no thanks, but still - why the B? But as we were there pre-theatre a change in plans wasn't available. The... More

A cute, cozy French bistro. We stopped here for a glass of wine and dessert after the show one night, and ended coming back 2 more times during our 4 day stay. The server was very accommodating ( and very French). She recommended a glass of champagne, Kir Royale style. It was fabulous! She may have been one of the... More

Tout Va Bien show marks on the wall, showing that it – 15 years ago – was a popular place. When we came, the landlord went on setting tables and had us wait in the entrance. Bad start. Then a chilenian 32 dollar house wine in a french restaurant – hmm, I am not sure. The Bouef Bourgognoie was delicious.... More

This little French restaurant was always a favorite when I lived in NYC, so I was anxious to go back. Sadly, it is not as good as it used to be. The server was very friendly, and the service was good, but the restaurant was nearly empty, which was a first since I have been going there. The food was... More

First time in this restaurant, we had a super waiter Thierry, who was friendly and very efficient. The special Leg of Lamb and Beef Bourguignon were well prepared and made us think of France. Nice to serve veggies and potato. wine is reasonably priced, and the Sangria is a special treat. We will return. Thanks!

We stopped in here on a Wednesday night after the Jon Stewart Show, without reservations. They could not have been more welcoming and the food was delicious. I ordered the sole, it was wonderful, everyone enjoyed their meal.

Small bistro, just outside of the Times Square area. A popular establishment since the 1940s, and it's understandable why: tasty French cuisine; warm, friendly staff all of whom seem to be native French. Our three-person group had lamb, bouillabaisse, and beef bourgingnon. Nice selection of French wines. Those dining there can feel comfortable wearing casual or dressy clothes. For New... More

Was able to grab a table for 4 on a Saturday evening without a reservation. Food is typically french but they were out of a few fish dishes by the time we ate: mussels ;-( . Nice wine selection. Staff and waiters are french and very friendly and they do a good job recommending dishes to eat.

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.
