We love eating here when we visit in NYC. The food is excellent, the setting cozy, and the service very good. I had Vichyssoise and Coq au Riesling for a wonderful August meal. The owner, Pamela, is welcoming and gives the place the feel of a neighborhood haven, which is mighty unusual in the city.

Went here on a Sunday after Mass for brunch. Nice little place. Had a mimosa and a crab cake with salad, perfect.

Our waiter was obnoxious; the bouillabaisse was completely tasteless and short on seafood; the chocolate cake was like a cupcake that was heated in a microwave oven, and served literally too hot to eat. However, the rack of lamb (one of the night's 'specials'), the scallops and the boeuf bourguignon were excellent, despite the very bad service, and the crème... More

I had a delightful meal at this West Village French bistro. The evening started with a perfect French onion soup (much needed on a cold day!), followed by a seafood risotto (and they didn't skimp on the lobster), and came to a close with one of my childhood favorites: banana flambé. The decor was reminensent of a French bistro --... More

We went for dinner. Beautiful. Shared crab cake (no breading), escargots, and oysters. Then went on to a little bit of everything from the menu. Fish, lamb, beef - all exquisite, and all specials not on the regular menu. The spot is tiny and intimate, with friendly attentive service and the feeling that it's always been there. Loved it.

We were up here to see my niece graduate from NYU. Lovely little French restaurant with lots of class, great service & wonderful French food . I got the brook trout special & my husband got their famous crab cakes (with very little breading). Vegetables on the side were delicious. We also shared the creme brûlée & it was heavenly... More

My husband and I had dinner on Mother's Day. I had the roast leg of lamb and my husband the beef bourginoine. Both were excellent. We shared the seasonal vegetables which were an excellent mixture of veggies perfectly prepared. We shared the bread pudding which is made with peaches and served with fresh berries. The only disappoint was the red... More

Appeals more to the romantics on this Greenwich Village side street. If you're not in that category of diner, maybe try elsewhere. There are daily specials but the food preparation is ordinary and not nearly as French as they would like it. I found the servers to be somewhat arrogant. I don't really enjoy being talked down to. And tell... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
