We wanted a good glass of red wine. We wanted to sit and be served by a solicitous waiter. At medium, the Le Monde's burger was perfectly cooked -- pink in the center, moist, grilled brown on the outside and served on a sesame egg bun. I didn't touch the tomatoes which looked smushed. The fries were heavenly -- buttery crisp on the outside. And yes, dipped in ketchup, sublime. David ordered the duck confit -- and as often happens, I regretted not ordering what he ordered. His duck was cooked in aromatic spices -- tender and juicy, and served crispy, garlicky and parsleyed cottage fries that were incredibly delicious. More at eatingaroundtheblock.blogspot.com

Tonight my husband and I ordered the bouillabaisse special ($21.00 a plate). My plate contained 4 mussels, 2 shrimp, some tiny mess in the middle that might have been a very small piece of fish, a slice of potato and sprig of fresh rosemary. The most expensive item on the plate was probably the rosemary. It was also tepid. The total amount of food was equivalent to a small appetizer. This was the most egregious bit of price gouging to which I have been witness. Maybe I don't get out much. When we complained, the manager told us that that was "what they always send out on Friday". We left and went to Henry's and had a GIANT bowl of mussels for $16.00. Very nice atmosphere AND you don't get gouged.

Good food;resonable price; great service; very reminisant of a European bistro in the country. No silly pretentions. Awesome selections of beers with knowegeable explainations of them by wait person. Our forks barely laid down before empty plates were wisked away..clean napkins and cutlery laid for each course. Things must have changed since other reviews.

Straightforward, great-tasting French food, amazing dessert, and adequate service.

It took our waiter an hour to bring our borderline-cold food, after we had to ask for it. It took him another ten minutes to bring the dressing for the salad and ketchup and no apologies at all. When we were paying up, we gave the waiter the exact amount shown on the bill in cash. We were going to leave the tip on the table when we were done with our coffees. Our waiter came back to us and reminded us we had not left a tip, which is discretionary to begin with. We were obviously going to leave a tip, maybe not the typical 20% cause the service was sub-par, but still...The manager tried to intervene in the situation. He constantly agreed with us but as justification for the waiter's behavior he said the clientele at Le Monde routinely stiffs waiters!
