I recently celebrated my 50th birthday here on Christmas Day (2014) and had a fantastic experience. We found it difficult to find a restaurant in NYC that was open and had a festive menu on Christmas Day. The restaurant is both elegant and sophisticated in decor and the dining room itself is not overly large. It feels intimate whilst still... More

We went here for a Christmas Eve special degustation menu and it was delightful. We reserved a month or so in advance. The menu and presentation is Inventive without being crazy and the food still resembled what it said on the menu. Very good service and lovely atmosphere with really wonderful dessert options. We had a very merry Christmas indeed!... More

Went here for Christmas dinner and the food was beyond anything I expected. Was part of the prix fixe they had. Was a bit disappointed that they had run out of lamb, but the food was amazing nonetheless. Service was pretty good...our waitress seemed like she didn't want to be there, and couldn't recommend anything food wise and didn't know... More

Had a romantic birthday dinner and I have to say: one of the best in NYC! It's a serious food spot and the staff take it to the correct level. Sophisticated. Serene. So... My guy knew the sommelier Roger and that helped; he paired a glass (or two, gulp) with each course. Marco, the Chef/owner was very attentive and the... More

We were looking for a top notch French restaurant. Couldn't get into Daniel or Le Bernadin, so we called up and they could fit us in. What a gem! Service was outstanding, ambiance excellent. Our server Amanda was extremely helpful in guiding us to the choices on the menu we would like. We had a foie gras terrine, yellow tail... More

Save Tocqueville for special occasions. The choices are imaginative and flawlessly prepared. Wait Staff, and in particular, the Maitre d'i, were helpful and knowledgeable. Certainly expensive, but at least the cost was justified by excellent preparation and service in a lovely setting.

BbWe chose this resturant for the evening of our wedding night and were not disappointed. I had mentioned the special occasion at the time of booking. The staff were really friendly and went out of their way to make it a special evening for us. We are not very adventurous with food so decided to have the 5 course taster... More

We chose the Tocqueville for my wife's birthday. As we had booked only three days earlier, we had to go for the earliest slot at 5:45 p.m. and were among the first guests. We had a nice table in the corner of the one big dining room. Although the place filled up and was obviously fully booked, they left the... More

If you are in the mood for a very nice meal with top notch service, go to Tocqueville. The Dining Room is very elegant, small and decorated in beautiful neutral tones. I try not to go there too often so I really appreciate it....I have dined at many of New York's best as I travel there often but this is... More
