    Great food. The staff is always really busy but very friendly. They know their wine if you want suggestions!

    The eggs we cooked to perfection the steak Tatar very good,I highly recommended this place there will be a wait on the weekend but definitely worth it

    Notwithstanding a harsh price-quality-quantity combination, the ambience is extremely nice (especially if you can get a table outside when it's warm) and the service is quick and efficient.

    The waffle sandwhich, while in no apparent way French, is scrumptious.

    Sat at the bar, very crowded but a nice way to see all yummy cocktails + concoctions being made behind the counter. Had blood orange juice. The "cod dish" was confusing as it seemed like bread+butter.

    The tartinette anchoiade is yummy. Cassoulet so yummy and always delicious. Dreamt steak tartar. Lots of wines by the glass all good incl. organ options. Brunch is so good too

    Perhaps the perfect place for coffee and croissants between friends and good colleagues. Best suited for two. Always simple, warm, and delicious.

    Really authentic French atmosphere with a small focused menu. Breakfast is a little pricey (but good!). For dinner get the cassoulette.

    Great for dates or to catch up with a friend. Not ideal for groups. Small tables and small but delicious dishes, friendly service that doesn't rush you out.

    One of my favs in the city. In addition to their great egg dishes and sandwiches like the croque madame, they have great pates like the chicken liver mousse and the rabbit confit

    I love the cosiness of this place and the lack of pretentiousness. The food is very good and served in small plate portions. The wines are great too.

    I think is overrated, is not as good as we thought, the wait of an hour does not worth it and the service was awful they made a mistake with our order

    Be aware of the long queues, but their food is worth the wait. Spoiler alert!: They're a french breakfast & brunch don't expect big plates!

    The best eggs and salmon. Delicious cappuccino. Also, a great place to go solo – grab the window seat, bring a book and have a glass of wine from Provence. Great place to hang out!

    RIP Buvette. Used to be my favorite place in the city but they've given up. Last 3-5 times I've been here: watery eggs, coffee that came after the food, missing main dishes, same menu. Move along.

    Breakfast favorites include the Belgian waffle with fruit, the croque monsieur, and the walnut-cranberry toast. A meal at Buvette feels like you’ve escaped to Paris. Read more

    Never had a bad dish. Comforting, straight forward. Cute cozy place for dates!

    The ideal brunch spot on a dreary NYC day. Suddenly you're in Paris eating fluffy steamed eggs on crunchy, oily bread topped with goat cheese and sun-dried cherry tomatoes. (Get that, btw).

    Arrived early just after 9am on Sunday for brunch to avoid the usual queue for this place. Great brunch options, can highly watermelon lemonade and salmon with eggs

    When you're a restaurant in New York and the service is slow and the food is barely enough and mediocre you should just go somewhere else

    ideal decor for Francophiles, and the food is impressive to boot! tried the Nutella crepe, eggs with prosciutto + Parmesan, and carrots w/ pistachio + lemon - all delicious

    Breakfast here: superb and absolutely classic. Feels so chic and totally not fussy. That proscuitto, scrambled egg and toast dish is so simple but done super well. Give me this over a benedict any day

    That chocolate thing! Everything is good here. Really tasty butter, good wines. Pretty much the same as the one in Paris, but with more people.

    Get their croque madame, maybe a bit small or it was just too good! Loved their lemonice.

    The croque forestier is Jody Williams' vegetarian answer to the croque-monsieur. It is pure decadence: buttery, creamy, earthy, crunchy, and toasty. Read more

    Excellent food although German couple next to us complained about cost of substituting one bread for another.

    Try to get a table in the garden - there's only about 8 seats out there.

    Perfect place for a social Sunday brunch with your foodie friends. But be aware that lines during that 'rush hour' can be severe up to 2 hours 😁
