    The wild Scottish salmon and polenta was enough to fill me up. Salmon wasn't dry and the polenta was a big bowl

    A spiral staircase separates this massive below-street-level space from Fifth Avenue. Duck in for the calm and stay for classic French salads, soups, eggs, and a flute of something sparkling. Read more

    Great place - the bouillabaisse was as good as in France. Meat was well cooked and tender. Try the macaron as desert!

    Don't get the macaron dessert. It was hard and crunchy, had to be at least a day old

    Get the soufflé. I'm not kidding. Don't even get anything else. Just the soufflé. Also the lamb/duck is very good, the scallops are excellent.

    A classic French bistro, this is a great place for an upscale and classy meal - and a cocktail or glass of champagne.

    The service here last night was embarrassingly bad. I understand he was a new waiter, but even still, there was no excuse for his severe lack of training. I've gotten more helpful service at Wendy's.

    Brunch selection leaves much to be desired, but the quality of what they DO have is deceptively decent.
