From the moment we walked in and told the waiter that our theatre tickets were for 7:00 and he said 7:30, I knew we were in trouble. They took our order and then we waited over 35 minutes for the appetizer. Then the wait staff...More

We met friends for dinner at La Boite en Bois. The food was nice - not great, but La Boite does not claim greatness - it's just a comfortable neighborhood place with a French accent. The menu has a nice selection and the food is...More

Love this bistro for pre-theater dinners. Food is delicious and the waiters make a point of getting you out in time for the Lincoln Center curtain. They also have a delicious prix-fixe lunch. Seafood crepes are not to be missed.

If you’re looking for some reasonably priced French food in a restaurant that’s not pretentious while in NYC then this this restaurant is worth considering. In addition to the good food, this tiny hole in the wall has good ambience. Enjoy!

The menu and ambience have a very authentic French feel. The food is excellent, and the wine list (and other drinks) varied. The tables are a little close, which also means that the noise level can mount at times, but in some ways this is...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
