    Too expensive, there are much better alternatives... like the Bakeri.

    Fucking terrible. Indicated 45min wait for two. Wound up waiting for 1.5 hours. Shitty food. Overpriced. I didn’t see anyone there who had a good time.

    Adorable and so French. Great wine, deliciously simple food, cozy ambiance. Sitting at the bar is great if you’re solo or with one person.

    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.

    Best croque Madame. Steamed eggs are great too. Good freshly squeezed oj. Good coffee. The little courtyard out back is quite charming!

    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.

    One of my fave restaurants. Cute, cozy, local vibe. CR'Q Madame, double macchiato w/mimosa. Sit outside, best spot.

    A perfect neighborhood brunch place with charming decor. Portions are small but still delicious and inexpensive. A little cramped, but the service was efficient & great. Really enjoyed my brunch here.

    Completely outstanding. One of my favorite places. Ever. The pea tartine, coq au vin, and pâté were some of the best I've ever had. 5 stars.

    Everything that's been said about the Jambon Cru was spot on. Super fluffy and honestly a large helping. The price is right.

    Whether for breakfast or dinner this place is transcendent. Highly recommend cod spread, cassoulet/coq au vin, and don't skip out on dessert. The chocolate mousse is divine

    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.

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