I took some business associates after a meeting in midtown based on my friend's recommendation. The owner is a former French national soccer player, and tennis fanatic (so don't expect to see him during US Open time) and has created a wonderful restaurant offering freshly prepared country French food. For this of you who don't already know, country French, is... More

The fixed price meal was delicious. The restaurant is cozy and basic yet very convenient to Broadway shows. The salmon was generous and prepared beautifully.

I have been coming to this wonderful restaurant for 56 years when my parents first took me. Enjoyed another great dinner with my daughter pre - theater. We both had the 3 course prix fix offering for $29.99. French comfort food at its finest in a "3 steps down" charming and warm setting. The escargot was to die for. My... More

Tout Va Bien is very convenient for the Broadway shows in the 50s. If you inform your server that you have theater tickets, he'll get you out in time. If you don't have theater tickets, you'll have a more leisurely experience, and if you're lucky they might bring over the bowl of Sangria during dessert. The French onion soup has... More

We went there for a lunch and when I saw the prix fixe menu, I knew I had found a gem. For $15.95 you got a choice of 4 starters, 6 main and 4 desserts. Of course some of the choices added a couple of dollars ($4 maximum), but any choice was wonderful. I had the escargot, mussels steamed in... More

We ducked into this little restaurant to get out of the rain, and found a wonderful surprise. The atmosphere, staff and food instantly took us back to Paris. We enjoyed tasty authentic French dishes, most notably the pate, escargot, coq au vin, and creme brulee. It was great to find a wonderful local restaurant in the heart of tourist central.... More

My wife and I recently ate at this restaurant and had a great meal. I had the frog legs and my wife had the poached salmon special. The food was very nice and reasonably priced. The service was excellent and the wine list was good. All in all, a very nice evening. We've eaten at several restaurants in Paris and... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
