    The best dishes come in sandwich form; the $16 signature burger is stocked with french onion soup, gruyere and an egg on top of the brioche bun, and classics like Croque Monsieurs and Croque Madames. Read more

    Go for brunch and get the Shakshuka. Not mind-blowing, but solid with a dash of salt. Half way through, order a side of fries... and dump them in your leftover harissa red sauce at the end. Delicious.

    Open 24hrs. Great place to get post drinks dinner. The Mediterranean platter is great. Carrots to die for. Chicken paillard ($6) w spinach ($6) make great sides. Crowd can be "eclectic" post 3am

    In 18th-century a popular tavern known as The Old Grapevine (named for the grapevine on its walls) resided here. People came to gossip and say “I heard it through the Grapevine” Full history via<LINK> Read more

    I had the Croque Monsieur here and devoured it in minutes! The food was incredible, and the service was lovely as well! I will be back to this little gem again, and again...... :)

    We love the old-world bistro ambiance and that it’s open 24-hours a day – you can get your Iced Cappuccino fix anytime you want.

    Affordable, French food that doesn't skip on quality for the sake of price. Go for the crispy duck confit with the fig compote and balsamic reduction; it is delicious!

    Mussels are great - with ommegang beer. The steak and fries with bearnaise sauce is unbeatable. Try the lamb burger as well. My favorite neighborhood place!

    A croque monsieur has bechamel. Theirs does not. Also, the ham is poor quality & too salty. And, the bread has the texture & extreme heat that microwaves create. No French "resto" should accept this.

    I would avoid the prime rib. It was cold, all fat, and tasteless. Perhaps the worst piece of meat I have ever had. I actually left it behind and my server didn't even ask why. Must happen a lot.

    Try the coq au vin - Easily my favorite dish right now, I'm doing a tour of traditional French Coq Au Vin in New York, French Roast beats Pastis

    The food here is great and it's a better French café than most of the cafés I've been to in all my travels to Paris.

    Good spot to get some work done. In the back room, the back-right seat has a plug. I'm told there's another seat at the bar with power. Free WiFi.

    Ridiculously amazing spot for 24hr goodness, including mind blowing French Toast at 4am paired with ice wine & bacon. Yup. Only in New York.

    Never come here before 12 o'clock... They will only serve you the breakfast menu and half of it isn't even available. They had no baked goods... Service is spotty as well.

    One of my all-time favorite places to chow down any time- day or night. Personally, I always go for the duck if it's available!

    The food was amazing (try the duck) but the staff wasn't that friendly and make sure your not sitting in the corner below the heater..

    A serviceable breakfast place where a back room sits large groups. Pretty standard and quite reliable when you're with the family.

    Great atmosphere and an amazing Foursquare special (check in with friend and receive a dessert) I would recommend the warm apple almond tart with vanilla ice cream.

    Great for brunch. There is wifi but if you're having breakfast alone, bring the paper and ditch the laptop.

    If French Roast starts to feel like a cutesy French-themed cafe, recall it as Jack Nicholson's hangout in "As Good As It Gets." Or rent the DVD.

    For something light and healthy, go for the arugula salad. Lemon, olive oil, and grana pedano.

    Brunch at French Roast. Order the Croque Poulet (grilled chicken, avocado, gruyére). It is magical.

    Expensive for what it is, not bad but not that great. There are certainly better places in the neighborhood.

    For a place with 'French' in the name, these guys make a pitiful rillette. Avoid it.
