Opening with the warm goat cheese petatou, my party and I were bewildered by this enchanting hors d'oeuvre. Then, a steak and eggs with potatoes so tasty and delicious, it almost makes you wonder if what you are eating wasn't pan fried by the sheer awesomeness of God himself. The steak itself was mild and cooked decently though lacked an initial oomph up front. The eggs were nearly a disaster. Overall a fair-good meal.

I've gone for several special occasions and while the staff can be a bit curt the food and atmosphere are unbeatable

We chanced upon this place looking for somewhere to eat before free dance lessons at the pier at 6:30. We arrived at 5:45 on a Sunday evening in the summer. Just walked right in and got a table outside. The decor is totally stunning. It's like an Epcot version of France. Our waiter was French and adorable. The food was reasonable and delicious. Got a free parking space too. The only problem was they absolutely would not serve us dinner until 6 PM on the dot so we couldn't finish our meal and still were a few minutes late. A little anal I guess like the French can be.

Having heard about this restaurant and being known for bad service, I was thrilled when I had impeccable service. Everyone was so kind and friendly. The Steak Frites was to die for, as well as the omelettes and the cod. Definately would go back, and the fact that it is packed made the atmosphere that much more interesting.

Four Irish girls on third trip to NY in as many years hoping to eat in one of NY's leading restaurants. What a let down. Decor is very good but tables a bit close and nice buzz but surely food should be a priority. Clearly style is more important in pastis. Evidently its production line stuff as a request for a small variation was turned down but even conveyor belt re-heated food can be done well. This wasn't. My steak was the grisliest I have ever had. The flambe pancakes were cold, the middle of the choc fondant was frozen and worst of all the maitre d' didn't seem to give a s--t. No repeat business from out of towners I suppose.

This was the best night of my holiday. My friends & I came for a joint birthday celebration. We had a reservation and were seated immediately! The waitress was lovely and took our photo's for us. She was very attentative and friendly. The food was second to none! The steak was cooked to perfection and I enjoyed every bite. Ok the prices are slightly high but this restaurant is worth every penny. Its not pretentious like Tavern on the Green you would feel just as comfortable in a pair of jeans as a cocktail dress. Dont just take my word for it try it!!!

Nice bistro decor. Great ambiance. Beautiful people. Great French Onion Soup. OK steak frite. Really not a cool place to sit down at the bar and chat with bar staff...they are there to fill your glass and ensure your bill is up to date in the small glass in front of you. Too bad.

Whats not to love... a bit of Paris in NY, do you need more than that?
