I've been coming here for years, and it has decent French food. The quality of the meals is hit and miss. The service is good, but it can be loud and crowded. It's also very expensive even for New York. I'd recommend it if you...More

Nice service; poor food. We have been coming here for many, many years. Today we just had the first poor meal we’ve ever had here: tiny mediocre omelet, tough crust on quiche, many rotten bits on greens. This restaurant needs to pay more attention to...More

Went there because of the reviews but was disappointed. Service was slow and the entrees were average. The Escargot however, was excellent.

The decor reminds me of a Paris bistro with lots of brass and close tables. The night we were there the air conditioner was barely working but the friendly waiter made up for it. The menu is typical bistro style and there is a nice...More

Like many NYC restaurants, this one is extremely noisy and I had to strain to be heard by my companion at dinner one recent evening (ended up with a sore throat as a result). However, the food is good so maybe go for lunch instead...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
