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

Many restaurants in New York disappear as fast as they appear. This one has been around for decades; my parents used to take me there 30 years ago. The food is as French now as it was then, very traditional menu. Service is slow and poor, but they know it and apologize for it on the menu - it goes... More

We were looking in the theater district for a quiet spot to have dinner before the show. This was the perfect price fix menu. The food was very tasty, fresh and presented in a family styled French setting. We had mussels, escargot, beef Burgundy, steak, chocolate mousse, and cream caramel. Each course was better than the last. Service was friendly... More

I was here to celebrate my cousin birthday and she was fond about this place. We ordered set menu with clamps and garlic for starter and beef steak for main course. After those two big portion (at least for my Asian belly standard) I couldn't finish my chocolate mousse cake for desserts. Wine is one of the good taste here.... More

My husband and I took my 87 year old dad and his wife here for dinner. We were staying at the Hampton Inn, which is right around the corner from the restaurant. We chose it mainly to minimize walking, but my dad claimed he had the best salmon he had ever had in his life. Pretty amazing, given the amount... More
