We sat outside for a drink and desert. We had an outstanding creme brullee! Service was a bit inattentive, but on the plus side, we were never rushed...

We could not go past without noticing the popularity of this Bar/ cafe/ restaurant. We stopped for a beer and enjoyed the buzz of the crowd inside - it isn't quiet but it has a great atmosphere. Very good service and menu and it is a top spot to see the world go by.

Was seated immediately. I ordered quickly and was served my food within 5-10 minutes. I ordered the pumpkin ravioli and it was outstanding.

The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. The tables are very close together and very small. The noise level is very high and it is hard to hold a conversation without shouting over the din. The brunch menu is very good and the food is of high quality.

I stop in here once in a while when I'm working in the neighborhood, and am always happy when I leave. The breakfast is excellent, and super delicious. Service is excellent as well. Take a seat near the window and watch the world pass on 6th ave.

We visited here twice in our 3 day trip to NY. It was great, the service was excellent, there seemed ot be a lot of locals in there which was nice to see being a tourist. We had breakfast & lunch, both were delicious. Coffee was really nice. The restaurant has a great feeling inside, lovely vintage French decor.

If you go to dinner to enjoy the company, have a delicious meal and relax, this is the place. Perfect for meeting friends or taking the family, with wonderful selections and not too expensive. I've never had a bad experience and I often stop by for takeout when I don't have time to cook and company is coming.

This is my favorite spot to meet a friend for brunch in this area. The waiters are genuinely warm and polite, which is not a common experience of mine. It has a nice cozy, atmosphere with a French twist. The food is quite good and reasonably priced. Yes, at times, it can be noisy during peak hours, but that's to... More
