“Visited on Bastille Day for some appetizers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

I was so fortunate to visit Cafe Claude on Bastille Day! They had decorated the charming place tastefully and offered an incredible Wine Flight the Sauvignon/Chardonnay blend and killer Pinot Noir stood out as I relished the stellar duck pâté as well as the Chabichou Goat Cheese...they were the definition of EXCELLENT!!!
The hostess and my server, Nicolette, was delightful as well as the food! So worth a visit when you are in the mood for French fare!!!

“Fourth of July trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

My fiancée's brother recommended this place. It's a classic French bistro with classic fare. The dining rooms were small and overcrowded and they had a tented patio in front of the main entrance. We ordered a dry creek valley rose which was available on tap in a carafe. We started with three vey nice cheeses and a hearty multigrain bread, but a classic baguette would have been better. The leaf lettuce salad came with whole leaves and cutting them to bite size prices was difficult on the tiny table. For an entree, we had sole with roasted vegetable and mash potatoes. The fish was fresh but over salted. The desserts were the highlight of the evening.

“Great food and atmosphere ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is a nice little spot down an alley way which is reminiscent of the small cafés in Europe. Great spot for a couple of small group. Reasonable priced food, the wines aren't the best though. Try the steak tartar, made right at your table!

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We got this recommendation from some locales. It was just a lovely place near Union Square. The stuffed calamari was superb. Having live jazz in the background was a real treat. It was a great meal in a great location.
