    A literal hole-in-the-wall that might easily go unnoticed between all the famous SoHo restaurants in the area.Great cocktails ranging from classic to modern, strong to sweet. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    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.

    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!

    Night. Ella on the speakers. TCM on the television. Glen' on the rocks. — Great for a catchup. Split the steak au poivre and veal risotto with someone.

    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.

    Loved the steak and the oysters. Onion soup looked amazing too. Great little spot, nice for groups. Music a bit off though.

    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.

    1534, a cocktail den on Prince Street where drinks are inspired by the French colonization. The lounge is in a dimly lit basement underneath the restaurant, Jacques. Read more

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

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

    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

    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.
