This was our first visit to La Grenouille, as we had two milestone birthdays to celebrate and it seemed like the right setting for such important occasions. We have probably had 240 dinners in NYC over the years and now wonder why it took us so long to dine here. it certainly ranks in the top dining experiences we have... More

Conveniently located just off 5th Avenue at 52nd Street, La Grenouille offers to its demanding clientele a fine menu offering a diverse variety of dishes, comfortable seating, superb food, and excellent service. I especially like their lobster bisque soup and the smoked salmon, but have never had anything but a delicious meal handsomely served at La Grenouille.. The helpful staff... More

My daughter and I wanted a special evening out (dinner and theater) in NYC before she moves to the other coast. She wanted French so I chose La Grenouille. We were not disappointed! From atmosphere, to menu choices, and amazing attentive service it was a perfect evening. We were given the option of ala carte menu or the pre fixe.... More

This is an elegant French restaurant that has an exceptional ambiance, outstanding food and service, and lives up to its well deserved reputation. Our favorite dish is the Dover Sole, which is prepared and served table side. We have dined here many times through the years and we have never been disappointed.

The service was very good. Not personal like I am used to in the south, but no issues and they were very attentive. The food was very good. I didn't care for what I got, but my husband's beef bourguignon was delicious, as was the lobster bisque. We went for a pre-theater pri-fixe... it wasn't their full menu, so I... More

It's very well decorated, nice table settings, tables far apart, hence quiet. The service was attentive, indeed a bit intrusive, though I find it disturbing to hear a foreign-but-not-French accent from servers in a very self-consciously French restaurant. "Is that supposed to impress the hicks?" Evidently, "classic" means unimaginative and undifferentiated to these people. Both entree (mushroom, spinach, cheese) and... More

This is a classic french restaurant. The room is beautiful with many mirrors and flowers. The service was a bit stuffy. The food was delicious but rich. We were seated side by side in quite cramped conditions with a cord to an electric lamp as a tripping hazard that modern technology could easily solve. After informing them we there there... More

My husband & I had another amazing evening at La Grenouille with Pepe as our wonderful captain. We both had lobster ravioli & grilled sole. I had floating islands & my husband had the gran mariner soufflé. The food and ambience make this restaurant such a special special treat for us when we visit NYC. We have never been disappointed...

We had a perfect meal for our family of four. It's not cheap, but it's worth it. Be wary of the prix fixe menu ($175 per person). Before we went, I visited the website and walked by the front window to view the menu. Neither example reflected the fact that the prix fixe menu was virtually the only option at... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
