I had the best experience at La Grenouille with my boyfriend who had visited if a long time ago with his father. It is incredible glamorous so be sure to dress well! It is a piece of old upper east side New York! The decor is stunning and the food to die for. We were by far the youngest guests... More

Went to this restaurant on our last night in New York City because of the recommendations on the tripadvisor site. This restaurant was outstanding in every way. The wait staff is superior, and the food is perfectly prepared and presented. This is a high end restaurant and worth a visit. Relax once you get here. You do not want to... More

La Grenouille remains the eminence of formal french NY dining. Years after I spent many happy meals there with clients, including in their exceptionally beautiful private room upstairs, LG shines. The stunning flower arrangements still make the main dining room stand out, and the taste of each bite of culinary paradise makes daddy sigh with contentment. I feel only Le... More

Enjoyed the Price Fix and the beautiful atmosphere. Beautiful flowers make this one romantic place. The wait staff is attentive but not overly. Most importantly, the food is amazing. This place is not for the tight budget. You will walk away with a hole in your wallet but in love with your mate!

It had been a number of years since my wife and I dined at La Grenouille, and we were looking forward to our recent return. It did not let us down. We were seated at a wonderful table, just as you enter the dining room, with a wonderful view of the dining room. The room is lovely, highlighted by the... More

Oh the flowers and the cosy setting is just a dream! We had the most wonderful meal here. Our first time at this well-known restaurant. The service was perfect, not too intrusive but nicely intimate. The foie gras, and steak..melt in your mouth and the flavor of the meat was just spectacular. The soufflé is not to be missed. It's... More

We visited La Grenouille for my birthday and enjoyed the evening of our lives! From the beginning of the meal, through the divine courses and to the end, the service was completely impeccable, and I plan to return next time I want a flawless celebration.

As close to Le Taillevent in Paris that I have found in New York City. Gorgeous ambiance, outstanding cuisine and impeccable service from a staff that has been there for years. You may want to save your visit for a special occasion as the prix fixe dinner is not for the economy minded. But rather than trying to cram dinner... More

In today's fast paced and trendy dining options of Asian fusion / Ramen / Designer Italian foods - La Grenouille brings you back to how fine dining should be. Service was personal and professional. We were going to a music performance so we chose the Pre Theater menu and were treated personally and warmly. The food we selected included the... More

My friend and I wanted to enjoy one special restaurant while in NYC. We chose this one. Couldn't have been happier about our choice. We chose the pre fixe menu and went early, mostly because we were not heading to the theater but back to our hotel. We were treated like royalty, enjoyed the beautiful fresh flower arrangements on every... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
