We were staying opposite at the Washington Jefferson Hotel and saw this bistro packed out every night so decided we had to try it. From the moment you walk in you are made to feel most welcome and treated with warmth and friendliness. Typical French menu which was excellent plus specials every night with the smells of garlic and all... More

Came to NY for a conference. Remembered about this place on Sunday night and went to have dinner. Since I'm turning vegan at this point, I got my favorite escargot (come on, it's not really meat or fish :)) - the best ever anywhere - and truffle mashed potatoes. Got a glass of Bordeaux and relaxed to the full. French... More

French Bistro menu close to Broadway Theaters that is a real New York Experience. The last time I ate here was over 20 years ago, and the atmosphere and quality of the food is just as good as I remembered. Pricing is very reasonable, and service is very friendly and efficient. A great find in midtown.

Tout Va Bien is a small, very busy, place in the theater district. The menu has most of the classic bistro dishes. I had the Boeuf à la Bourguignonne and it was fine. Ditto for the house red. Very reasonable prices Service was fast and friendly. Oddly, at least two of the servers didn't speak French; surprising because it is... More

WOW! Very French, quaint, limited seating, authentic and yummy! This was a great foody experience. Started with the brie appetizer and it was spectacular! Had the skate dinner which was very good with the slight taste of capers! Yummy! Because the restaurant was so small we were able to meet and talk with new friens that were seated next to... More

We never miss a stop at Tout Va Bien every time we visit NYC, literally. The food is great and the servers are welcoming and helpful. We love the staff and recently had a lovely conversation with a bartender/server from Spain. Everyone is friendly and interesting. Though French, the restaurant has an international feel. There's even complimentary sangria offered at... More

Tout va Bien has been around forever--we end up there every few years depending on what shows are playing nearby. We were pl;aced in the back room, even though we had a reservation, but the front was a full. It was pleasantly quiet in the back and the waiter, when alerted we had a 8:00 curtain, got our three courses... More

The inside and outside of Tout va bien are that of a simple Paris bistro. What really makes it memorable is it's excellent cuisine, it's warm welcome and it's attentive service. This is the real deal, folks! Put this establishment on your list of things to do the next time you're in New York. You won't regret it.

Thank Pierre L

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
