La Grenouille is French and in NYC--needless to say expensive. But for his birthday my husband wanted white tablecloth, good napkins, good food, good wine, and we got that. Plus they serve savory mini-pastries, bread that crackles when you break it but soft inside, an amuse bouche, delicious cookies, and truffles with coffee, besides the 3 courses. My husband had...

One of the few remaining Classic French restaurants in the city. Always decorated so nicely with professionally trained staff. This was our second visit and chose to dine downstairs with a corner booth which allowed for a view of the whole room. The second floor is also very nice but with a different design. We did the pre-theater menu and... More

This place is a notch above the rest. My son always takes me to the best in whatever city we are visiting. This place was so special. The lighting, the roses, the food, the service. On our 4 day trip this place absolutely was my favorite. All courses were amazing, but I think the chocolate soufflé was my favorite. A... More

La Grenouille is a phenomenal French Restaurant! I have one negative comment. My dining companions and I had a difficult time trying to decide what to order. Everything on the menu, including the specials of the day, was unbelievably tempting. The three of us finally agreed to order entirely different items for our Three-Course Prix Fixe dinners; allowing us to... More

This fine dining French restaurant is popular, for sure; by 8 o'clock on a Thursday night, the place was packed. We were given the prix fixe menu, with a page of choices of appetizers, followed by many choices of main course and several choices of dessert. At the price of $172/person, we expected to be amazed by the dishes, but... More

Ate at La Grenouillle this week and had a wonderful meal. The restaurant is lovely, reminiscent of the fine dining experiences of years past. The flower arrangements all around the restaurant were just magnificent. I was a little surprised that the flowers on the table were obviously fake. There was some fraying on the petals, which is what made me... More

Dining in NYC is a competitive affair and in December things heat up into another stratum. A Friday night reservation for 6 pm was therefore accepted since no other time was available. I met a friend interested in conversation and after the Kir Royale and main course we took the advice of the waiter for other food and wine selections.... More

Food is exceptional as is the service. Ask far a table on the lower floors as you may need oxygen if you are seated at the top. I had the lobster and the soufflé. Most of the wines were $125 upwards. The bottle we choose was good but before taxes and service etc was 125 dollars for the bottle. The... More

My husband &I had dinner here on Friday 27 th Jan 17. The menu is a fixed price of €172 per person for 3 courses. The tuna tartar with smoked salmon was delicious. Followed by crispy duck with glazed orange with tender and tastes, but could have done with more orange and more green veg. For sweet I had crepes... More

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.
