This is such a little gem of a French restaurant. We enjoyed a lovely meal, great wine, and a window table recently. The service is top notch. Excellent decor and location. Easy to have a conversation and reasonable too.

We arrived at 9pm after a flight from Washington and drive from JFK. This owner actually opened his kitchen up to feed us as everywhere else had finished serving and sent us on our way. The food was lovely and at no time did we feel under pressure to hurry up. It always seemed busy when we went past over... More

We ate here once before and it was ok and decided to give it a second try. Service was very unprofessional; waiter had a very heavy accent and we could barely understand him when he gave the specials. We ordered a bottle of Chardonney from France and wound up with a bottle of house wine. They charged the correct price... More

My family has been dining at Le Chef for almost 2 decades. My father, an attorney, met one of the original owners many years ago and was invited to bring his family to eat at his place. We went, loved it and have eaten here too many times to count! Yet we always wish it was more. Each time our... More

Went on a busy night and given outside footpath table. Was nice and cool outside on a hot night. Initial service was very good. Menu selection is wide and offers something for everyone. Lamb rack and fish were good choices. Food was very tasty however we had to wait nearly an hour for food to arrive. Staff did keep checking... More

Great menu, very creative and well-done execution. Service is always great. We visit the area a few times a year, and it's always exceptional. They handle large groups (we've brought some as big as 12 or 14) as easily as couples, and everyone enjoys it. The name is misleading; I avoided it for years because I thought it was French,...

Great French onion soup and seafood salad. A variety of crafted drinks where also delightful. Limited outside seating on a busy street but inside is intimate and fun. Reasonable noise levels, too!
