    The steak au poivre is the most popular dish. The sole almondine is crispy, tender and herbed. The tarte tatin a la mode is also recommended. Read more

    Lovely French café good for a romantic date or a nice brunch. You can't go wrong with either the croque madame or the coq au vin.

    Top-end prices for low-brow coffee! $6 for a double espresso?!?

    Upper east side meets Paris. Everything on the menu is exquisite. Try the massive mussels in white wine! And finish off with tart tatin.

    There were only 10 people here before us. 4/20 tables were full and it's been 30 minutes since we placed an order for omelets. Food is not worth the wait.

    Great spot for quiet meeting in Midtown

    The mussels are excellent. The service is not so excellent. But, on a nice spring night it doesn't really matter! Have a glass of wine and relax.

    Rude waitress, long long wait for food for a spot with less than 20 tables.

    Slowwwww. I hope you have a long time for brunch and aren't very hungry.

    Says they close at 11, but wouldn't seat us at 1030!

    Fabulous bistro. Feels like you're in France. Love the Moules Frites in white wine sauce and the Scampi. Big thumbs up.

    Save yourself. Do not eat here. After finding two long black hairs in my frittata I was told the hair did not belong to the cook, charged full price with 20% gratuity. Terrible customer service

    Eggs with ratatouille are awesome. Get with the gruyere. Everything better with cheese.
