It was St. Patrick's Day. Place stunk of smoke and was overcrowded and extremely noisey. Quieter back room was empty and cold. We left.

We had a craving for a real French lunch while in NYC last month and found it here. It was so good we went back a this month for "snacks" and cocktails. Down a few steps off the street is an inviting room. Everyone there participating in that: the clientele, the greeter, the barman, the waiters, all were welcoming. Reasonably... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant on a very cold March night. It was a wonderful, cozy ambiance. The food was exceptional! My husband had the bouillabaisse which was outstanding! I had a chicken special which was also delicious. Our waitress, a young woman from Southern Spain was lovely and very attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant for... More

This French Bistro has stood the test of time so it must be doing something right. It's a quaint, romantic restaurant very much like what you would find in France. The food is good Bistro cooking and the service was good. The Steak Frites with Roquefort sauce was very tasty along with the chocolate mousse. After dinner, they bought a... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Tout Va Bien during our recent stay in NYC. The bistro is located on a quiet section of 51st street, just off 8th Avenue. We were staying at the hotel across the street; and we were drawn in by the cozy appearance and the menu. We were not at all disappointed!... More

My daughter and I went for dinner prior to the theatre and so enjoyed it. We didn't want to leave - the ambiance, the food and the fantastic waiters made for a perfect time. You won't be disappointed with this restaurant. Make reservations! The escargot are wonderful. And their homemade sangria is great.

Have you made plans for Valentine's Day?No? Well go and reserve a spot for two at this place, Tout Va Bien. Translation: All is well. This is a small, cozy, very romantic restaurant. I went here with my wife on Tuesday. I ordered the pâté maison (house pâté) for a starter, which I'd hoped my wife would share with me.... More

I have been going here for the past 30 years, romantic in a old Paris way, their artichokes are wonderful, omelets amazing, and their Beef Bourguignon, is the best in the city. perfect location in the Theater district.

The place was good. I had heir bouillabaisse and it was tasty. Their salmon tartare was also not bad. This is can be good for a quick grab. The atmosphere was not romantic. I would come back in a year.

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.
