Had such a great experience, the service is amazing! They are such a great team. I got a tour of the kitchen! Steak was delicious and they catered to my vegetarian friend; she loved it! Great Martinis too! 5 stars!

Their food is as good as my French. Period. Gone are the days of Bourdain and the glamour of Les Halles. It's average at best. I want to really like it, I do but the food is average. I do like their happy hour which...More

We enjoyed the delicious steak, salad, and fries lunch, as well as the salmon with asparagus. The buttery, lemon sauce with the salmon was perfect. We also had escargot for an appetizer and loved it, especially with the bread they brought to the table that...More

This was by far the most terrible meal that I have had in the past half a year (yes, this includes my ex-mother-in-law's cooking). To sum it up; the state of the bathroom (worthy of an old European subway in the country) reflects the entire...More

We chose this for a "special occasion" dinner on a recent trip to NYC. The food here was wonderful, especially the salmon and the creme brulee (which were both textbook perfect). Helpful but unobtrusive wait staff, and not outrageously expensive for a French restaurant. Two...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.

of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

Les Halles Downtown enjoys a very central location between City Hall, Wall Street and the Fulton Street Market. Its menu, similar to the original Les Halles, is casual French and inspired by the small Parisian brasseries and cafes. It includes many sandwiches and salads. The establishment is comprised of two rooms: one lively around the long bar and a quieter room that can be closed off for private events.
