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.

Tocqueville was the crown jewel in our recent dining weekend in NYC. First, the room is extremely elegant and refined. Off-white walls with muted artwork. The service was impeccable, with every desire met. Nothing was left to chance. The six diners split a tasting menu, which is comprised of five courses and we paired them with wine. The tasting menu... More

We stopped in for lunch and was genuinely surprised. The atmosphere was beautiful. We sat a the bar rather than wait for a table. Get choice! The service was great! Had a few house special margaritas, that normally I wouldn't try. One was Pineapple with jalapeños. I want to go back just to get another one. We had Carne Asada... More

Prix Fixe menu is nice and not too expensive, but with drinks, can quickly add up. Last time we here, the restaurant was not busy and we were able to secure table on spur of the moment without a reservation. But in an abundance of caution, I'd always make a reservation. Food is well prepared and presented. My wife and... More

Tocquevile is perfection. The food is consistently sublime, the ambience is refined and welcoming and the staff is knowledgeable and attentive. It is definitely a place to go for a special occasion when you want everything to be perfect and memorable. My only criticism is the wine list--it is expensive and not as deep as you might expect in a... More

Beautiful French food presented at its best. The place could use redecoration, but the service and food is so consistently excellent, I would give that a pass. A simple pasta with cream sauce and truffles, pasta served at the perfect moment of relaxation - the covering the stuff of dreams. If you are looking for "Daniel" type creativity and fussiness,...

We had the chef's tasting with wine pairnings. This was a GREAT meal for the price. Expensive, yes-I believe about $150 p/p, but the food was just so unique and DIVINE. Well worth it for the cost. The dining area is quite formal, so we would have prefered a more laid back atmosphere, but overall--a great meal.
