We loved this restaurant. We wanted a french restaurant in New York and wanted to try something new (to us). This was a winner on all fronts. Good looking, kind and sincere welcome and service and truly delicious cuisine. Tables are far enough apart for privacy. The menu was well put together and featured many of the "french favourites" The... More

This is probably the fanciest restaurant that I have ever eaten in, and we went here because my mother's cousin runs it. It was truly fabulous. We will be back.

This must be a hidden gem, because I'm not sure why it doesn't have a Michelin star. The 5-course meal was fantastic from the first (of many) amuses to the petit fours. It was also very reasonably priced for the quality and quantity of food!

Pleasant service, good food, however atmosphere was lacking in this somewhat tired looking room. No music either. Felt weird.

An understated, NYC celebration restaurant. We were 3 couples, all with very different ideas of a great dining experience. From a sans sauce diner to a vegan to a carnivore, plus three more, the dinner was superb! The men raved about the duck breast entrée! This diner loved the bay scallops. We all savored the blueberry soufflé!

Good food, good service. Nice place for a special meal. Went for my wife birthday and food was great. Definitely needed to book but nice lace for a special romantic meal.

Jason Lawless is a genius. Everything was delicious, beautifully presented and inventive without being tricky. It was one of the best meals I have ever eaten...and I live in New York! In combination with a sensational wine pairing by Master Sommelier, Roger Dagorn (one of only 180 in the world; and formerly of Chanterelle) the dinner was incomparable.

This was our third visit to this restaurant. The food was excellent. My wife had oysters for the first course and lobster for the second. I had asparagus soup and duck. There was a bit of a delay getting served initially, but the restaurant offered us some free champagne before the meal and then provided a lovely dessert and chocolates... More

I'm a food-loving, belly-filling kind of person and there's no shortage of options in NYC. Lucky to say I have tried most of the best and many of the rest. Yet I was caught completely by surprise during recent my lunch at Tocqueville. The beautiful room immediately transported me away from my workday. The menu presented the right number of... More

A refined, quiet and peaceful setting for a meal that was impeccably prepared. The food was subtly complex, delicious and mirrored the setting- refined and elegant. The service was attentive, friendly and knowledgable . I would highly recommend this restaurant to all who are looking for an elegant and serene evening.
