“Wonderful French Bistro oasis near Empire State Bldg tourist jam”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

True bistro feeling, great service, French food. We overheard French being spoken at near by tables. Many who walked in were on first name basis with the staff. Many guests gave their order without looking at the menu, which tells you of a loyal clientelle.

“Great food, Great Place. A must if you want to eat well in NY”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

sorry for my english writing I am French (Quebec)
Small restaurant in the heart of the big apple wich offers great food, a good wine list and a special ambiance and all for a very reasonable price . We had a fantastic evening and felt that we where regulars in this place. The owner Serge is a bit eccentric but it makes part of the charm of the place. We will return and refer without any hesitation :-)

“Romantic, Very French, Solid”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

Serge is more authentically French than most places in the area...it's actually owned and operated by French people. Or at least they put on great french accents ;). The food is good to very good. Romantic atmosphere. Good date place

“Cozy, fast & friendly service, good food, but too little”
Reviewed March 27, 2011

Maybe it's a matter what you're familiar with, but I found the portions too small (pumpkin ravioli with goat cheese) even for the reasonable prices.
Other than that, no quibbles, fast and friendly, and a nice atmosphere.

“Quaint neighborhood bistro in the heart of NYC”
Reviewed January 21, 2011

The food was truly excellent and the service was attentive and friendly. I went with a group of friends and everything from the wine to each course of food were perfection. The atmosphere was relaxing and cozy. Serge himself is a bit of an eccentric but his presence added to the charming ambiance of the establishment. The price was reasonable for French cuisine. We will definitely return!
