“Good taste, if you don't mind the calories ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We went there for breakfast. The place is charming. There is always a wait. The food is good, but the menu very small, not too many choices, they don't do any substitutes or changes. So you better like it the way the do it. No soy or skim milk. No Splenda, just sugar. We liked it ok. Oh but it was really expensive.

“French Tapas in W Village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

One of our go to restaurants when in W Village. all the dishes are meant to be shared and are served in groupings determined by kitchen. Space is tight and waits typical. Get there early if schedule allows. excellent "somewhat limited" selection of wines. Be sure to try the specials.

“Not Happy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We were looking forward to this restaurant and went for brunch on a Friday morning.. It was charming in appearance, but when we tried to order a scone and coffee for one breakfast and eggs and kale for another the waitress said that would not be enough food. so we added scrambled eggs and honey bread. Well both egg orders came with toast so we had much too much food. The waitress should have told us this. The bill also came to 60 dollars for two. Too much! We will stick to 100 Acres and Once Upon a Tart.

“Bravo Buvette”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Quaint, tiny restaurant that I can't get enough of. My wife & I visit at least once a month. Great wines to match the delicious creative variations only found here. A true NYC find!
