    Nice decor, built to look like an old Paris cafe. Overpriced even for its location.

    Food is all really good. That said, bit of a snooty attitude and definitely becomes a place for "ladies who lunch" during the week.

    Cocktails are good but steak blah no flavor ambience French but crowd older

    This place screams France. Get the steak, pair it with a red wine, and pretend your on that trip to Paris that you've wanted to take. It's the closest you can get to France in NYC.

    It's perfectly fine; I just wish the food were as good as the restaurant looks.

    The short rib club and a glass of rose on a lazy Saturday afternoon.... Wonderful.

    The sliders are quite small and barely contain any hamburger meat. Get something else if you're hungry. Waste of money and highly overpriced for what you get.

    Lots of food for a reasonably priced pre fixe ($30). Here's a thumbsdown: for a big restaurant, there's 1 toilet in the men's room--incroyable!!

    Drink a lot of red wine and order the steak frites! Did I mention you should drink a lot of red wine?

    Went with a group of people. Everyone who had the Salmon had explosive diarrhea. Beware of the salmon!

    This is the most underated restarant in the city. The steak tartare is probably the best in the country. I've never had a bad meal here. Also, I've never had an issue with the servers being rude.

    Perfect for brunch, lunch or dinner, this French bistro has all the best classic dishes. Try the French onion soup, and the steak tartar with frites and finish with a chocolate soufflé.
