One of the best value lunches (on a Saturday) can be had at Tocqueville. My wife and I ate here for our wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. The soup was outstanding. The service and remaining courses were quintessentially French, with the fish course big and flakey in a superb sauce. If you like Bouley or Jean Georges give... More

Loved it here. Lovely restaurant quiet enough to have a conversation. My friend had the duck and said it was the best ever. Food was A+, service A+ can't recommend highly enough

Visited this restaurant for a prix fixe Christmas dinner. When you walk up to the restaurant it gives you the illusion that it is small but when inside the space opens up and has two floors. Very elegant venue. We sat upstairs and overlooked the first floor. The food was very good and the service was impeccable. I would dine... More

Probably overbooked for a holiday dinner this unassuming restaurant had some surprises. The service was the worst part as we often sat with dirty dishes and no wine service. We dined over 3 hours for a fixed three course meal. On the positive, we had time to digest. On the negative we often sat with "no wine and dirty dishes".... More

Superb 7-course tasting menu plus wine pairings. The chef was able to accommodate one of us disliking seafood by providing different dishes, and we even got different wines at times - complete with refills. Portions were generous - perhaps a little over-generous. The only disappointment was the slightly slow service to start with, but once that was over, we were... More

I want to say from the outset our family dinner for six was one of the most pleasurable dining experiences we have had. Initially we were able to get a reservation at an acceptable day and time. From the reception at the door till the final dessert course and beverages I could not have asked for more. The breads, the... More

We had a fabulous experience here. The chef's five-course menu with wine pairings at lunch is an amazing value and a wonderful way to have a special meal at half the price of the same thing at dinner time. Each dish was well constructed to elevate each ingredient, and the wine pairings were interesting and delicious. The service was attentive,... More

Was able to get an early seating because of a late minute cancelation. Everything was wonderful seafood, pasta ,duck. Service was attentive. The dining room sets the appropriate ambiance. Perfect dining experience. We were going back home to have birthday cake. The staff delivered a great dessert anyway with a candle. It was great better than our birthday cake.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
