Tout Va Bien offers the atmosphere and cuisine of a neighborhood bistrot in Paris. You descend down five steps into the dimply lit dining room crowded with tables, chairs, and, on most evenings, smiling people. The food fits the setting with the traditional steak au poivre, moules frites, and filet of sole meuniere highlighting the menu. On a few occasions, some dishes can disappoint – coq au vin in an overly think sauce and bland boeuf bourguignon. The wine list is not extensive, but by New York City standards, the prices are quite reasonable. On most evenings, French-speaking locals can be found at the bar eating an appetizer or two and having a couple of glasses of wine. Tout Va Bien is not about haute cuisine, it’s about traditional bistrot fare and an authentic setting. It succeeds very well in what it aims to do.

We went to that restaurant on Sunday evening for dinner and were very disappointed. The place is small and very crowded and noisy. You are trying to squeeze in your sit at the table and it is very uncomfortable, because there is absolutely no space between the tables. I couldn’t even get up to use the restroom, because you have to ask people around you to move ,so you can get out of your sit. The food was not great either, very plain, the duck was awful and escargot was not that great either. I had the bloomspot coupon, so it was not that expensive, but regular prices are high and it is not worth it.I love French food, but I was very disappointed in this restaurant. Place is very nozy,there is absolutely no space and you can’t enjoy your meal,because you are squeezed between people sitting next to you.We would never go back there,there are plenty of good French restaurants in New York where you can have better dinner for the same price and enjoy your dining experience.

We have been going to this place every Christmas for the past ten years. There is a reason. It's great! The food is typical French which is another way of saying its terrific. The main reason we keep going back is because it's fun. The owners and staff are the friendliest. They can't be more helpful. The service is wonderful. The place is small but cozy and casual. This time of year it's great if you're in a good mood and want to stay that way for dinner. I recommend everything on the menu. I have sent lots of friends to this restaurant and they were not disappointed. By the way, it's also great the other eleven months of the year.

We chose Tout Va Bien after a very long day. It's close to midtown/theaters, etc., yet is far enough away to where it is not over-run by tourists. The decor is very casual, warm & welcoming. Service is efficient, unpretentious & friendly. The food is very basic....standard Americanized French comfort food. None the less, it is tasty, fresh & well prepared.

I've been eating here for over 30 years. It isn't the best French restaurant but it serves consistent Bistro food in an area not known for it's haute cuisine. I love the chicken cordon bleu, the escargot and the country pate. You can do much, much worse and pay more in the theater district. Give it a try.
