    Great for large parties - even with short notice. Salmon is the dish to get but chicken liver pâté is also excellent. And $36 for a great bottle of malbec? Yes please!

    Great dinner - I would recommend the vegetable flatbread, salmon, and pana cotta. Such a delicious meal!

    they advertise themselves as french cuisine; didn't really get that vibe. service is slow and siappointing. scallops are good and butternut squash is okay, not the best I've had. the calamari is great

    NOT vegetarian friendly. Kinda what you'd expect from most French restaurants...

    Danny Boome loves the French comfort food at the East Village favorite, Tree, on The Best Thing I Ever Ate. We recommend Linguini with clams and mussels in saffron broth. Find more tips at FN Local. Read more

    Everything is fantastic, but the lamb was superb. Escargot as an app is a great call. And if you check in on Foursquare, you get free deep fried Oreos!

    oysters and steak and wine and happiness

    The pasta with clams and mussles in the saffron broth that they were known for? Gone. Took it off the menu. Place is still great but, why!?!

    Not overwhelmingly great for vegetarians, but the Roasted Butternut Squash Salad and the Grilled Flatbread are delicious choices, even if you're not vegetarian! They can also prepare things vegan.

    Check out the Secret Garden in the back-- it's like your own little piece of Brooklyn without having to leave East Village

    Great food, but be sure to leave plenty of time to compensate for the sloooooooow service.
