Second two days were appalling, slow service, forgot milk for tea, messed up order, no refills of juice and very sloppy service. Although food was good, service and general control over customers was very... More

We stayed at the Sofitel Hotel and opted to have breakfast included. I would have given it 5 stars, but I have to take off a star because of some of the restrictions they have regarding what is included as a hotel guest. I'm basing this rating on stays we've had at other Sofitel Hotels in Europe that have buffet... More

Bar was lovely however we were shown to a table near the window in a 2nd room. We sat alone until almost we... More

Went here after the theatre for dinner. Over priced, although decent portions. Warm goat cheese salad was delicious, but overall selection was limited. Service was good. Probably wouldn't go back.

My husband and I discovered this little place one day as we walked past the Sofitel. We decided, on a whim, to go in for brunch. We have been back every year since, and that was several years ago. We even took our teenagers with us one year. The brunch menu is delightful. They provide a big, beautiful basket of... More

Super nice restaurant, i like the "De light" option on the menu, that really original and trendy. The manager, Nicolas, took great care of my wife and I and was very pleasant to speak with him. Merci !

We had Friday night dinner on our honeymoon, and this was the best meal we had in new York, and one of the best I've ever had. The wine list is excellent, the food is wonderful, and the range and mixture of the offerings is great. Goat's camembert and grapes after dessert? Win.
