Close the Kitchen Door
By DER on 5/28/2010
I stopped going here after several visits where the kitchen door was left open and the clattering, radio and loud conversations overwhelmed much of the dining room. Additionally, my last meal there had a microwaved-taste to it that was distressing. After Patois closed, I made this my local, but will not go back again until the kitchen door is closed. Quercy used to be brilliant - I hope they can turn it around.

Delicious food every time! Soups are wonderful as are the salads and entrees. Reasonably priced and service was attentive...been here about a dozen times, brunch, lunch, dinner....it's all good and I am a regular.

I recently went here - randomly lured in by the decor and the menu by the door. Had a delightful grilled leek and lentil salad - with some wine and bread, you could just have that and be satisfied. Moved on to the cassoulet as an entree (very shareable for 2 people), a tasty glass of wine, and wonderful service the whole night through. A very relaxing setting compared to the more busy streets of the neighborhood! I look forward to returning and trying more of their dishes, wine and if I have enough room this time, dessert!
Good value for Bistrot cuisine in NYC

Very decent French cuisine for moderate prices. I have been about 10 times now, tried almost everything on the menu. The only dissapointment is the service, below average, but except this point, you will have a great time!

what a shame that such a potentially charming place didn't even come close to a nice dining experience. service was non-existent at least it was a good bottle of wine, and I had a lovely companion to commiserate with.
Great Bistro Brunch

Service a little slow, but the bread and butter is to DIE for. I love the omelettes and beet salad. Those dishes are surefire winners at this bistro.
Great Bang for the Buck

Went to Quercy during Bklyn's Restaurant week where 3 course dinner was 18.48. Decor dark and rustic. 2 couples went and sampled: Roasted Chestnut & Cauliflower soup (smooth and fragrant), Portabello mushrooms w/ greens (yumm!); Boeuf Bourguinionne (with Roasted potatoes and haricots verts), Lamb Sausage and Grilled Salmon (with scalloped potatoes and Haricots Verts). Main courses flavorful and succulent. Only 1 of 3 desserts tried was great: Gateau Chocolate came in a puddle of delicious chocolate sauce. Tarte Tatin was disappointing: soggy crust, mushy apples served with creme fraiche; Creme Caramel was only ordinary. Coffee superb! Wine and microbrewed beers excellent and well priced selection. We'd go back, but only during special price offerings.
High Hopes Dashed

I had high hopes for this neighborhood bistro - instead I got poor service and mediocre to bad food (taste, temperture and presentation). Just walk on by...plenty of other good picks in this neighborhood.
Mediocre at best
By newyorker on 9/23/2003
The food was mediocre, the service was incredibly slow and disorganized, and it's all overpriced to boot. There are better options in this neighborhood.

The soft shell crabs were to die for. The apple tart was absolutely fabulous. The wine was great! Need I say more! I'll be back.....
