    They have a pretty quick turnaround time for 2 people but I wouldn't wait more than 20 minutes for a table. Everything was very good but not revolutionary.

    One of the greatest restaurants in NYC! Go. The food tastes almost as in France. You can't reserve a table, but wait outside with a glass of wine or go to the German beer place across the street.

    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.
