    The mussels riviera were simply delight, the monkfish was swimming with the mussels and the shrimps in a tastefull sea of white wine and garlic & the riesling was chilled to perfection thanks to Jerry

    Great brunch menu. The burger is solid, and the eggs florentine is perfectly done. Bottomless mimosas are pricey but worth it if you’re having two or more.

    Great choice if Red Rooster is too crowded. And even if not, still a great choice! Steak Frites were excellent. Noisy crowd but still can have good conversation.

    We're big fans of the classic dishes at this elegant French bistro. Consider their nightly specials or the bountiful $25 Sunday prix fixe, and make sure to check out the killer brunch menu.

    My favorite restaurant hands down in the neighborhood. The quality of food is excellent and there is hardly any wait.

    The cafe here is the place to be "scene" as the fashionable set struts up Lenox. Happy hour packs them in. But speaking French gets you noticed. Mussels & Salmon Tartare are tops. Portions fluctuate.

    Classique Cheeseburger w/Fries is excellent! So too is Scrambled eggs w/smoked salmon. Bread for the table with olive oil/balsamic is also great.

    Steer clear of the Kobe burger and go for the regular, instead -- it's the best we've found in Harlem.

    For authentic cuisine invoking the Parisian cross-culture of the Harlem Renaissance, look no further than the croque madame and mousse at this cocktail bar and restaurant.

    Monday night is Steak Night. A real bargain. Any steak is 12.95 and sides are 5 dollars. #getit

    $14 for a carafe of mimosa, sangria or Bloody Mary can't beat. If you stay for dessert try the blueberry tart.

    Now closed. I believe due to mismanagement. I sadly predicted it’s fate. Great loss of a classy place near the Harlem crossroads/125& Lenox Ave.

    Their tuna tartare and foie gras is SUBLIME. Super friendly service and you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Tuesday is VIP night with 50% off your bill.

    I also must add I ordered Merlot. It came was watered down house wine. They admitted they ran out of merlot. They replaced it with a nice Cab..just upsetting to see a wonderful place going slowly down

    WE love the French food and interior decor. Outdoor seating is nice as well. Ask about the VIP Tuesday card. Got half off on meal. Visit Download WeHarlem iPhone/Android App 4 FREE

    Love the energy and atmosphere of this place, but I need for the cute waiter that resembles John Legend to NOT be so damn absent-minded.

    Excellent bistro fare, excellent value, best net in this area if Red Rooster is too rich for your blood.

    Combo of French food and New Orleans cuisine; great for a friend/family re-connect and a casual date. Lenox Ave restau. never had it so interesting.

    Based on my one experience, it was not representative of French food. Notwithstanding, the food and ambience combined made it a nice evening.

    At least during our visit, the service was abysmal, and the food wasn't any better. The burger was a cold, dry, and overcooked hunk of meat. Read more

    If you're seeking a healthy approach have the salmon burger sans bread with spinach on the side.

    Don't order the "Oeufs a la Coque". The waiter said they haven't made it in months, and they forgot how to make it.
