We went here after a matinee show, it is right in the middle of Restaurant Row on west 46th. Once inside, the place actually reminds you of a European restaurant, nice and inviting. The Prix-fix menu was fantastic. We started with French Onion soup and...More

My wife and I had dinner here after a theater matinee. A reliable standby on Restaurant Row offering average French fare has become a tourist ripoff. Firstly, only an expensive prix fixe menu is offered with no option for a la carte service before 7:30...More
