I went to Lafayette two nights in a row to celebrate two important birthdays... my Mom's and a dear friend. The food was delicious and the outside atmosphere is lovely and inviting. If you want 10.0 nicoise spaghetti, fondue, chocolate mouse and more, come to...Lafayette. What is most remarkable is the incredible staff.... from the host, to the waiters, bussers, manager and somm. They were happy to be there, positive, overly hospitable and utmost professional. The waiters wetter knowledgeable about the food and wine and were there to be sure we had a great time. An amazing dining experience all around. I've enjoyed Lafayette many times for brunch and dinner and will continue to have this spot on the top of my list! Well done!More

What a breakfast! A little pricey, but well worth it. We got the basket of pastries and 2 of us got the French omelet, one got the lemon pancakes with fresh berries and one got the scramble with truffle. All were delicious! Ands the coffee...was outstanding!More

Was there for brunch. Very busy and reservation recommended. Enjoyed the meal with an excellent rose wine suggested by the waiter. Our group ordered eggs, a burger and pancakes and each dish was above par. Service was also good.

Perfect place for a Sunday Brunch. Very good brunch selection: from Salmon and eggs Benedict to Croque Madame with eggs and ham up to Burger brisket. Friendly atmosphere and excellent service. Feel like a New Yorker on a Sunday 👍

$30 for an omelette and a coffee - should be better, more flavoursome and generally more befitting of the reputation of this place. Somewhat mediocre.

Whether you're here in summer at the outdoor street terrace, or having some hearty French comfort foot on a chilly winter's day, Lafayette never disappoints. The food is consistently good and always satisfying. Also, love the private room downstairs. And they have canelés, one of...the few places in NYC to find these delicacies. The seafood plateau is excellent as are the fresh pastas and roast chicken. Tables are a little tight, but this comes with bistro ambiance.More

Stumbled upon this doing Holiday shopping,and with the snow starting to fall, what better way to stay warm than with French Onion Soup. This is unique as it contains beef shank!! Great service.

Came here for Thanksgiving and so glad that we did! Almost everything was spot on on. They did a great job with turkey, and we also tried the duck and the Artic char. All were very tasty. Oh, also tried the French onion soup and...it was wonderful! The sauteed Foie Gras was done up in a very seasonal way, with maple syrup as the sweet accompaniment. Only thing I didn't like was that it was room temperature, as if it was made in advance and sitting around. They very busy, but smooth with the service. It was a tad noisy and somewhat cramped, but overall a nice place. Very good value to, large portion sizes. Would like to come back for a "normal" dinner sometime.More
