Wonderful Sunday Brunch
By CoolAid81 on 7/23/2009
Brunch at this restaurant will not disappoint. The layout and decor remind me of some brasseries I dined at in Paris during my college years. It is one of the most adorable restaurant settings in Manhattan. As for the food, it amazed me. My party started with the warm goat cheese petatou, which I would order again in a second. The bloody marie and champagne a la fraise cocktails tasted great and helped ease the head strain from the previous night. For a main dish, I would suggest the Eggs Benedict, which was perfectly poached and served with just the right amount of hollandaise. Delicious!

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.
THE place to dine in NY!!

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!!!
Great, reliable food.

Classic food on a beautiful Easter sunday

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.
We must have come at the perfect time

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.
Amazing French Onion Soup!!!

The french onion soup here is absolutely wonderful! It is definitely the best that I have ever had. It is worth it to go here and just have a bowl of it.
Hipster Ground Zero

Be lucky enough to sit amongst all the pretty young things and what you'll experience is a pretty enjoyable Provencal feast supported by its inventive seasonal specials. You may have a hard time getting the attention from their daydreaming waitstaff, but all in all, they pull through and what you'll end up with is very good Provencal-style dining match with an even better people watching scene.
What A Treat!

this place always has a wait, but for good reason, the food rocks and the place is alive. one of my top ten places to go.
