I had the Filet de Boeuf, Béarnaise with frites paired with a Bordeau and it was delicious. If you go in with the expectation that Anthony Bourdain is going to cook your food, you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a classic New York dining experience and a steak so tender you can cut it with a fork... More

We tried it out at our first visit to New York, after knowing the restaurants from Anthony's Bourdain tv show. Everything was tasty, but way too expensive for what they're serving. Ok, it was gourmet style, but we aren't used eating main courses as small as the starters. Beside that, everything we tried was familiar to us from back home... More

I ate here with my daughter we had a good meal and were served by some excellent attentive waiters. However after dessert a waitress who had not been assigned to us came over to the table to advise us of the tipping policy. She seemed only interested in intimidating us to tip the maximum amount. She advised us that it... More

Les halles park avenue has been my families go to place since 1994. Service and food never failed to amaze me. I had mixed experiences downtown and last night was the worse and I won't be going back to this tourist trap. It was my nieces graduation dinner and we drove from Long Island for her favorite steak frites. It... More

We came upon this restaurant by mistake to be honest, not much choice in this area even using the trip adviser app, we had spent the day visiting Liberty island and then planned to do 1 world trade in the evening so needed something local in between, for some reason this didn't hit on the 'what is close' bit of...

The atmosphere and bar are great and the appetisers were every good. The mains were a bit disappointing, though: the duck was too sweet; and the pepper steak tasty but shockingly overdone. Fast, good service. Prices were high for the food quality, but you are paying for the name.

We went to Les Halles for brunch and ordered omelettes, crepe, fish and croque-madames. The frites were the real deal French skinny frites and were delicious. The rest of the meal was average, nothing really remarkable. The service was average as well - the waitress did not know the menu at all and kept having to go ask someone for... More

Great bartender. Had beers and his "special" drink. Had a great time. Good a/c on a hot day. Food looked good as well.

Description
Set on Park Avenue South, between 28th and 29th Streets, Brasserie Les Halles serves a collection of classic dishes from the finest brasseries in Paris. The speciality of the house is the French Cuts of Meats, simply char-grilled and served with award-winning French Fries. Les Halles' long list of various steaks comes from the in-house butcher. The French butchering technique looks for unique qualities in each cut, providing different tastes and textures in each type of steak. Les Halles buys Prime American beef, naturally tenderised by two weeks of wet aging. The beef is then dry aged in-house for 21 days at 36-degrees Fahrenheit to concentrate the flavours. The original plaster mouldings in the restaurant date from the early 1900's, when the building was erected to house a restaurant specialising in healthy foods. The most famous menu item at the time - a blend of fresh vegetable juice to order - was later licensed and bottled under the brand V8! The large menu is designed to accommodate all tastes, appetites and budgets, and free Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout.
