    Lunch is fantastic. The pre fixe menu is hard to beat. I went back three times over my week vacation in NYC because this place is THAT GOOD. Order a glass (or three) of rosé with your lunch.

    A cozy and low-key spot with an incredible selection of tasty crepes, salads, soups, desserts and coffee. Their soups are truly out of this world! We love the Cream of Tomato and French onion soups.

    I stumbled upon this place earlier this year. And what a find. Every time I'm in the city I make sure to stop. My favorite is the lasagna made with crepes. Divine. So are the burgers and the croques

    Get the French onion soup. Cute French-feeling spot, good lighting, busy but not loud. Perfect for a quiet, affordable lunch after MoMa.

    A classic French bistro menu with very kind and generous service. Cozy, with a dedicated base of local patrons.

    The steak au poivre is not their strength. The steak does not stand on its own. You need to dip it in the sauce to get a tasty bite. The accompanying French fries on the hand, are addictive.

    We had the prix fixe with fish and it was amazing. Service was slowish but it was a great little place for a dinner that was delicious but not expensive.

    Came w 3 children and thought it would be a disaster but they were extremely accommodating and put on a movie on upstairs for us. Food was excellent - had the steak sandwich and French toast.

    Incredible food, definitely authentic French food. So hard to choose between so many delicious options. Great lunch spot. Try the croque monsieur: a brasserie classic they do so well!

    Best French restaurant in the U.S. Keep an eye out for Monsieur Picot down stairs. Get a Pre Fixe menu w some house wine & the chocolate mousse. The Soup a l'Oignon is the best you'll ever have.

    Charming and quaint French bistro where you must try their Cobb Salad, topped with gorgonzola and cherry tomatoes or a bowl of their warmingly delicious Soupe A L’oignon.

    Hence the name, come for the soupe! The Soupe a l'Oignon meal comes w/ a green salad, dessert & a beverage. The salad dressing is addicting as well as the fondue! Seating is super cozy...

    Hidden gem in the city. Best onion soup I've ever had. I buy bottles of the salad dressing. Ask for extra dressing and dip the bread into it. #noms

    This place is charming and cozy. Perfect for a drink and a quick bite. The croque madame was good but make sure to get the tarte tatin.

    Been going here since the mid-Nineties, and I STILL always order the same thing. For $18, you get French Onion Soup, salad, bread, dessert and a glass of wine. Very tough to beat. The cheese fondue is

    Salads are dressed with a delicious mustard garlic vinegarette that you can take home for $10 a bottle. Bring the bottle back for $6.50 refills.

    Their onion soup makes a 15 minute walk in a blizzard worthwhile.

    The Creme Brulee and the Onion Soup are a must! Also, the downstairs is cuter than the upstairs (where they seem to sit larger parties).

    the caesar salad is amazing. incredibly CRISP romaine hearts are sliced long-ways and served nearly whole.. maybe that's what makes it feel substantial. that or the fact that the salad is HUGE.

    Really good basic French home style food. The crepes are to die for. Latte is super small, skip it and try Starbucks around the corner, but don't skip the soups as a starter.
