Real Bistos

This is a mix of Provencal and Ligurian cuisine. Great classic food, if you love kidney, liver and fish in a very Bistos atmosphere you will feel at home here.

The food here is pricey, but delicious. Be sure and ask the price before you order! If you can't speak French you may be at a disadvantage:)

Our focus was on having a nice efficient time in the "city". A show, parking a light dinner in a nice place. All close to the show. Every thing is good about this nifty little place. From the owner who greeted us at the door to the wait staff that never made you wait. We had the prix fixe dinner... More

Whenever my wife and I visit my son in New York, we always make it a point to visit our favorite french restaurant, Tout Va Bien. Located on a quiet side street in midtown Manhattan (311 W. 51st street, 212-265-0190) the food is delicious and true to french cuisine, and the staff is very friendly and eager to please. It...

My wife and I were just in NYC for a brief vacation to see David Letterman and I Broadway show. We usually stay on 48th street at the Belvedere Hotel and we have walked by this restaurant several times as we stroll around New York. I have wanted to go into this restaurant many times and I finally made it.... More

We visited this restaurant after an afternoon theatre visit. We were slightly worried when we first walked in as it seemed empty, with only one other table occupied. Some complimentary bread and crudités appeared while we perused the menu. This could have been a meal in itself! We decided to skip starters and just order mains, both of us choosing... More

We found this little French restaurant hidden down some steps close to our hotel (Amsterdam Court) and it was totally charming. The waitress (clearly french) was like a breath a fresh air and very polite and fun. We went their to try oysters and frogs legs, which weren't to my liking but my boyfriend loved them! The prices are reasonable... More

We were looking for a French restaurant for after a play on Saturday night up in the 50th Street Area. We always go to Restaurant Row and wanted to try something new. I'm glad I found this little place! The Prix Fixe after The Last Ship was $26.00 per person. The mussels were like a dinner portion and busting with... More

The restaurant is very small which is a nice change of pace for New York City. You need a reservation being that it's located in the theatre district. The food is authentic French and so is the staff. Escargot and (French) Onion soup are both superb. I would def return to this place!

I have been here several times most recently New Years Eve. The food is quite good. It is authentic French. Often times, I have noticed French speakers at the tables around us. The service is a little inconsistent but usually very friendly. On this evening the service was tres bien! The sangria is fantastic. I like the cordon bleu while... 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.
