“Hard to find but what a little neighborhood gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Had trouble finding this restaurant as it is very narrow along 8th avenue. The wait staff and the manager/owner were very friendly. We shared the mussels, grilled asparagus, chicken paillard and saumon grill. Everything we ate was delicious! Even though the decor is kind of old, we will definately go back for the mussels, and a bottle of wine.

“Awesome ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

We visited this place after watching a play on 47th street. The atmosphere was wonderful. There was a wonderful jazz trio playing New Orleans style jazz until 1 am.

The lamb lollipop appetizer was awesome & cooked to perfection. I also had the grilled asparagus; they were so good! Crisp & zesty without being too tough. I loved this meal. I ended the meal with a glass of 20-year-old port. I love this place.

I dropped in after catching a show, and the food was wonderful. Also, the house jazz band was playing which was very entertaining. The atmosphere was great. I highly recommend dropping in.

Been to L'ybane many times and every time its great. They always have specials on wine and appetizers. My wife and I usually sit at the bar and grab a few glasses and a bite and have a great time. Staff is very friendly and the decor is cool.

“Wow, amazing find before the show...”

Stumbled upon this French-Mediterranean restaurant before our Broadway show. Outstanding food with excellent service. Especially loved the shrimp beignets and the mixte plate. Solid selection at a reasonable price.
