very reliable French cuisine

I have been coming here for at least five years and have always found it consistently good. The food and service are both solid. I stick mostly to the traditionals--snails, pate, steak au poivre, coq au vin, etc--and am never disappointed. The pre-theatre prix fixe at $27 is a good bargain... read more

On the recommendation of a friend, my wife and I ate here 10 years ago. And now we eat here every time we are in New York. Friendly and fun staff, super food and always a surprise extra somewhere during the meal (this time a glass of Sangria on the house), they truly want to make your experience memorable and... More

We (two couples) were attracted to this place by (a) its inexpensive 3-course prixe fixe dinner menu, and (b) its proximity to the August Wilson theater, and we were not disappointed. The menu is sufficiently broad as well as sufficiently authentic, the ambience permitted conversation without shouting, and the wait staff was friendly and not the least bit snobbish. We... More

This bistro reminded us of the small bistros and cafes in non-touristy towns of Normandy and Brittany: nothing fancy but solid down home comfort food. On the cold wintry day, we enjoyed the carrot soup, onion soup gratinee, coq au vin, salmon, and shared tarte tatin (warm upside down apple tarte) for dessert. We felt we got excellent value for...

I took my girlfriend here for dinner during our first NYC visit based on positive reviews. PROS: Close to times square. Staff were polite. CONS: It was severely hot inside. Despite brining this up with the waiter, my gf and I were both sweaty after dinner. There were only 2 waiters that night and no host. The food.....LEAN CUSINE (microwavable... 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

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 authentic French and very tasty. The service is... 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

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.
