First class French food with warm greetings in French by a warm French Maitre 'd. (Nothing like a real Frenchman at a French restaurant) Great choices but had a salmon (cooked perfectly with some pink in the center) along with a nice mustard sauce in the lentils. Can't miss the best chocolate mousse in the city.

A noisy restaurant with a somewhat limited menu, OK food, and expensive pricing. The salads are unimaginative, and the entrees not memorable.

The French restaurant for the upper East side British crowd. Excellent food and good wine. Not a cheap option but prices are not out of place given the location. A loud and busy atmosphere for the upper East side scene. Nice décor. Worth a visit with friends.

The atmosphere is incredible. Everyone is dressed up at this lovely restaurant and suddenly the lights dim and the music turns up and everyone has a fun dance party. Then everything returns to normal and you are back to your incredible meal! The staff here is top notch and thank you for an amazing time!

A shout out to our new friend Debra who recommended this as our NYE place to go. We'd never been or heard of it before but it is definitely a place to go back to. We were created warmly even though New York magazine called it the snobbiest restaurant in New York a few years ago. We saw class and... More

Went for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the great service and delicious food! Would highly recommend going there if you enjoy wonderful classic French food. Lovely banquets and Parisian style chairs adorn the brightly lit art filled room.

My wife and I had quite an expensive lunch, but we don't even care! People watching was better than a broadway show! We go to the one in Dallas at least once a week where we can get away with a lunch and bottle of wine for $150, but it was more than double in NYC. One reason is they... More

Amazing French restaurant! The place is very nice, the food is amazing, the wine list is perfect and the service was great. If you are thinking about going, consider a reservation since it's a hot spot and super crowded.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
