We loved our dinner! My wife and I both had the lamb special. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned. I started with an equally delicious tomato soup. Even the accompanying bread and fresh butter was special. The restaurant is cozy and has the traditional Parisian bistro look and feel, with even friendlier servers.

During our visit in New York last octobre, we stayed in West Village, where we found this very fine French restaurant, Le Gigot. We enjoyed the food in the first place, but also the warm welcome by their professional staff and the cosy interior. A superbe experience, that made us visit this place twice in a week.

Le Gigot is a small neighborhood restaurant in the West Village, and for me is a "can't miss" experience every time I visit NYC. The best time of year to visit is in the Fall and Winter where they feature a cassoulet that is simply the best I have ever had, anywhere. Like many small restaurants in the city, this... More

Nice place, far to expensive and watch out : only AMEX credit card otherwise you have to go out to get all that money you have to pay.😠

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at Le Gigot last night and the evening could not have been more perfect. The delicious cuisine, the beautiful romantic ambiance (you'll swear you're in Paris) and the perfect staff make this restaurant so very special. Pamela, the delicately beautiful owner treats her guests as though she were welcoming them into... More

We moved out of the neighborhood in 1998 :( Back then Le Gigot was a relatively new addition to the local restaurant scene and we loved it for its charm, excellent food true to its roots, and the fact that the owner was there every night, ensuring everything ran smoothly. Well, nothing has changed. The food is still delicious, the... More

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

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.
