    Thankfully, the delicious food and warm atmosphere made up for the severely lacking service. Only go if you have an hour and a half to spare and don't mind dirty glasses.

    One of the female servers was whack at the very end - beware of the snooty brunette w/ponytail. Otherwise the turkey, ratatouille & goat cheese crêpe was amazing! SO much goat cheese!

    Without a doubt one of my favorite places in NYC and consequentially the whole world. Come in early for a quite start over a perfect omelette and greens. And ask for Maria, you won't regret it.

    As a French onion soup aficionado, Le Grainne is tops in the city, followed by Cafe Henri, Le Bonne Soupe, and Tout va Bien, in that order.
