Had a v nice visit. Highly recommended. It feels a bit like a neighborhood restaurant. A true Bistro feel. Food was terrific. Great for small group conversation. Service was a little 'off', however there was a surge of customers as we arrived.

Dined here for the 3rd time in a few years. We always stay up this end of New York when visiting friends who live nearby and while there is a shortage of hotels, there is no shortage of amazing restaurants and Le Paris Bistrot is...More

Not too many places were open Christmas night along Madison Ave. in the East 90s, so we enjoyed the casual feel and fine food here. The onion soup was a warming starter, and the pate and salads are also quite good. We feasted on mussels,...More

Le Paris Bistrot is wonderful for anyone who wants the real French experience, both from the standpoint of the atmosphere and the food. So don't go there expecting an American take on a French bistrot, or a frigidly cold hermetically sealed air conditioned room. But...More

The Italian burrata appetizer was fantastic and the salade nicoise was well prepared and delicious. The staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. There was a beautiful breeze coming in the open front of the restaurant.

I quivered between giving the restaurant 3 vs 4 stars. I finally gave it 4 . As far as the negatives went, it was very hot and humid in the restaurant. There was air conditioning but they kept the door open. My stuffed artichoke appetizer...More

From the outside this looks like a romantic, quaint, if not tiny French cafe. Correct on only one front--tiny. More like tiny and smelly. And loud. And the food was not good. Over warmed bread. Greasy mussel broth. Average onion soup. Cold Brussel sprouts. Separated...More
