We ate at Mont Blonc on a Saturday evening with a party of 6. We had reservations. Our table was waiting and we were seated right away. The service was spot on. I had a martini and it was perfect- cold and large! The food was excellent- a mix of Swiss and German with some pasta thrown in for good measure. Portions generous. Total bill for 6 with wine and mixed drinks, six entrées, desert and coffee was a reasonable for NYC $280. Looking forward to going back. If you are driving in ( like we did) there is a parking lot next door. Go and enjoy, you won't be sorry.

I'm a New York City tour guide. Working a lot in the Times Square area it's nice to have a place where locals hang out. Mont Blanc located on W 48th St between 8th and 9th Ave is one of those places. Mont Blanc attracts people who work in the Broadway theater. You can hear actors talking in their distinctive over pronounced patois. But the stagehands stop by and add a little blue collar flare. A few tourists from the neighboring Belvedere Hotel sprinkle in soaking up the New York vibe.I like the fruit infused vodka martinis in oversized jars sitting behind the bar (peach, pear, watermelon). There is an inexpensive bar menu including bite sized meatballs that comes with a tube...yes a tube (like toothpaste) of spicy mustard. Stuffed clams, individual pizzas, nicely prepared sliders on tasty freshly baked French mini rolls with cole slaw. Good bar tidbits with your drinks at an affordable price which is rare around Times Square. Dinner is also available at seating near the bar or in a quieter room in the back. The employees are gracious and cheerful. Mont Blanc doesn't have the chaos and pandemonium of many Times Square establishments. At the same time everyone is enjoying themselves. Try it out.

What a treat to find a touch of Paris in the heart of Manhattan! Located in the theatre district, Mont Blanc was an easy walk from our show.

For Easter Sunday, they offered a four course dinner for $36 and each course had four or more diverse dishes to choose from. Among our choices were cream of leek soup, asparagus and endive vinaigrette, trout almondine, wiener schnitzel (turns out the owner is from Austria) and tiramisu. All were excellently prepared and the portions more generous than you would find in a Paris cafe:) The only course that fell a bit short was the house salad which was just ordinary compared to the rest of the meal. From a quick look, it appeared that their regular menu offered many traditional French favorites such as, my favorite, moules (mussels).

Finally, service was both pleasant and attentive. The owner took the time to come to the table to be sure that everything was to our liking. All in all a great dining experience.

Was intrigued by reviews we saw of the fondue at Mont Blanc so made an Open Table reservation to visit post theater. Service was great, seafood fondue and dipping sauces were yummy (too much to finish so we "fondued" up the leftovers and took them home to finish later), enjoyed salad and potato pancake, and wrapped it up with the chocolate fondue dessert--also yummy! And of course had to try the fruit infused martinis--both pear and mango were delish.

Great food and great service. Portions are very generous and very good. We both had a very good onion soup, followed by a complementary salad, and then for the main we had veal bratwurst and veal cordon bleu. Both portions were generous and very very good. Highlight though was the roesti potatoes they served for us to share. Absolutely the best roesti I've ever had and I travel regularly between the US and Switzerland and never had better roesti. Other NY restaurants that serve roesti should send their chef here to learn how to do it. Highly recommended. Bring a good appetite. Besides great food and service prices are moderate.
