    The music is so bad that makes the whole experience in this place a no-no! Food is ok

    Great food, fairly priced, but it does feel like it's more setup for French tourists than people who live nearby.

    Nolita Gem and Perfect DATE SPOT! The food we had was delicious. The Moules frites was very good and the Cuban sandwich amazing.

    The service wasn't so good since they couldn't even understood a reservation for 8pm for 7 people and kept mixing up the numbers and originally lost the reservation. The beef borboignon beef was gross

    Best rule is #7: "Never pass up a free shot from a staff member"!!!

    Happy Hour no longer 2-for-1, FYI. EDIT: Just kidding, they've restored it in early 2014.

    Amazing service. Food & drinks taste are always phenomenal. I had doubt while in renovation but even better. No bad comment I can say about it.

    Best steak tartare in town (together with Jacques on the UES @ 85th and 3rd).

    Too bad about this place. Their food and cocktails are halfway decent, but the servers will try to screw you every time. CHECK YOUR BILL. First time I thought it was a mistake. Now I know better.

    Named after Jacques Cartier, who, in 1534, tried to sail west to Asia and instead got lost in the inland waters of Newfoundland. He claimed Canada for the king of France, thinking it was Asia.

    For 31st bday wanted a spirited bar for 30 married 30-somethings, but not over the top. PERFECT. DJ wasn't too loud, not too crowded, drinks & service were amazing, and properly kept separate checks.

    I recommend taking one of the four seats at the bar, and ordering off the menu. Happy hour weekdays till 8!

    Steak au Poivre huge & delicious. Hanger steak smaller, cheaper but equally delicious. Both perfectly cooked. Cash/AMEX only.

    Don't order red meat, they can't figure out what medium rare or medium is they have only raw an well done, but as our waiter tried to explain, it's because the chef is French??? Bernaise was watery

    We came here mon-wed, ordered lunch entrees and expected our free wine as promoted. They refused and said 'they don't do that anymore'. Right. It was just advertised this morning.

    The worst wine I've ever had. Terrible place.

    The menu is a little wacky, but I loved the space and both the food (tuna tartare) and drinks (goldrush) I had were done very well. Recommended!
