We were in the mood for bistro dining and our usual haunt had a half hour wait so we sauntered down First Avenue to Bistro D'a Cote. First off, when butter comes wrapped in foil I know the experience is going to be a step down from memorable. The accompanying bread was a warm. We shared a salad, I had steak frites, my husband roast chicken. The steak was o.k., the portion fine, not huge so I didn't feel guilty finishing it. The portion of frites was small, they werent crisp. My husband's checked was ok. He finished it but wasn't happy with the moist but not chirp skin. We had three glasses of wine in total, bill with tip $130, certainly not cheap. We saw other couples digging into mussels, I guess that the thing to order.

Love this bistro on the Upper East Side, where its hard to find a decent place to eat. I hang out at the park nearby and wandered in for an early dinner which was sooo good. I absolutely loved the escargots with a yummy garlic butter that was seasoned just right. I had the wild bass for my main that was also cooked to perfection, served with lemon mashed potatoes and it was also very good. My friend had the duck confit which was crispy and very soft and moist. We shared the profiteroles drizzled with a chocolate sauce and filled with hazelnut ice cream. The service was great, I didn't need to ask for more bread or water, it was a really enjoyable experience. I can't wait to go back and try more!!!

Lovely French bistro - with fantastic wait staff. We ate at the marble bar and truly enjoyed everything about our time at Le Bistro D'a Cote. We took advantage of the quality French cuisine and wine. The escargot are wonderful. The mussels are a fantastic treat. Grand flavors abound! A lovely apple tart was the perfect finish to our meals.
We are looking forward to our next NYC visit - as it will include a quality meal at Le Bistro D'a Cote. Merci!
