    Double date for around $250. Foie gras was supposedly amazing and the hanger steak is a must. Pricey, but absolutely the best if you dine in their outdoor garden at night. Romance is in the air!

    This long-running French cafe boasts a trellised backyard that’s one of the best places for outdoor dining in the West Village. The menu mimics a Parisian bistro. Read more

    Live music & flavorful carbonara (thick bacon chunks...yum) make for a fun, romantic weekday evening. The truffle mac and cheese is a too rich for a meal, but probably perfect as a side to share.

    Delicious french food. Crazy happy hour at the bar, with $5 dishes & of house wine. Bartender is super friendly. Best place for romantic date at the bar or a brunch in the garden.

    Nice continental breakfast and great coffee. If the weather is nice, ask for a seat on the garden. The salmon at dinner is also excellent.

    Delicious food & excellent service (definitely on a wknight). Suggest the Foie Gras, Coq Au Vin, plus the burger which honestly tastes like it was cooked at home on a grille. Will be back for brunch.

    Many ppl complaining about the service. I'd say 50 % of the staff (men) was a bit too efficient, but the lovely ladies saved our night. Try boeuf du tartare. You get to choose how spicy you want it.

    This place is amazing. The owner is old school Italian and knows how to run a good restaurant. I had the pasta carbonara and hazelnut mouse for dinner--both were out of this wold delicious.

    The salad nicoise was fresh, hearty, and delicious. If you're in the mood for something creamy and cheesy (who isn't?) with a healthy twist go for the cauliflower gratin.

    Oysters Happy Hour is great!. Just 1 dollar everyday in the bar. Big oyters and very taste, add a wine and you will have a perfect night.

    Whatever you do, get the fries with truffle dipping sauce. It's divine. Mussels a Provençal were bomb, wash it down with a Bourbon Smash!

    nice terrasse which is rare in this area. excellent burger! nice service and also the back area was used as a scene in sex and the city!

    The garden in back is amazing. This place is a hidden gem. Whatever the dipping sauce is for the fries is unreal.

    So good it makes me burp after every meal. I’ve been told that’s a compliment in France, so I’m going to keep doing it 🇫🇷

    Garden is cute! Coffee is great. Goat cheese salad is delicious, but small. Good size to have with the bread!

    David is usually at the front bar. He speaks French, English and Spanish fluently. He also is super funny!!! If you want to get on his good side call him a Cochonou.

    Delicious croque madame and fries -- throw caution (and cholesterol) to the wind and go for it!

    Chocolate mousse is an awesome dark chocolate adventure that goes perfectly with the last glass of a delightful bottle of Malbec.

    Only restaurant that didn't require a reservation during Valentine's Day. Very small restaurant, so little room between tables. Lobster ravioli was delicious. The Riesling was just ok.

    The bacon cheeseburger is pretty darn good, esp on a cold night! Cute in front, avoid the back area.

    Their omelettes are divine! Girls, order your own. You'll want to finish this one all by yourself.

    Well prepared food, but I wasn't overly impressed with the service. The bartender is very generous with the wine by the glass, though!

    Fries are great. A bit too salty. Garden is a great escape from the city. (When construction nearby halts) enjoy!

    If youre planning on going here to relax and enjoy drinks in the garden, DONT BOTHER. The staff only pays you mins if you're spending big money. Such a shame since the decor/setting is stunning

    Waitress put our order in wrong, meaning we had to wait extra long for food. The mussels were good, but the broth was watery and too onion-y. Horrible beer selection. Too $$$ for what you get.
