One of our favorite restaurants. Our meal, as always has been very consistent. From appetizers, entre and desserts done to a perfection. The ambiance is very welcoming. Great for fine dining!

My friend just returned to work after battling breast cancer. She was out of work for seven months. I promised her a special lunch out and decided that La Grenouille was "that" special place. We both work across the street from it but had never ventured in. I surprised her by taking her there and I'll never forget the look... More

We chose to go to La Grenouille to toast my friend's father who had passed earlier during the year because this was his favorite restaurant in New York. What a beautiful experience we shared. The Bloody Mary's were perfect, which was his father's favorite drink to enjoy at La Grenouille. The beautiful floral arrangements were breathtaking and anyone who says... More

We were enjoying the festive Christmas atmosphere along 5th avenue a few weeks before Christmas when we decided it was time to get lunch. When I checked my TripAdvisor App, this restaurant popped up as being open (it was Saturday around 1 and several restaurants are not open on Saturdays for lunch). We got a reservation and what a GREAT... More

I had the best experience at La Grenouille with my boyfriend who had visited if a long time ago with his father. It is incredible glamorous so be sure to dress well! It is a piece of old upper east side New York! The decor is stunning and the food to die for. We were by far the youngest guests... More

Went to this restaurant on our last night in New York City because of the recommendations on the tripadvisor site. This restaurant was outstanding in every way. The wait staff is superior, and the food is perfectly prepared and presented. This is a high end restaurant and worth a visit. Relax once you get here. You do not want to... More

La Grenouille remains the eminence of formal french NY dining. Years after I spent many happy meals there with clients, including in their exceptionally beautiful private room upstairs, LG shines. The stunning flower arrangements still make the main dining room stand out, and the taste of each bite of culinary paradise makes daddy sigh with contentment. I feel only Le... More

Enjoyed the Price Fix and the beautiful atmosphere. Beautiful flowers make this one romantic place. The wait staff is attentive but not overly. Most importantly, the food is amazing. This place is not for the tight budget. You will walk away with a hole in your wallet but in love with your mate!

It had been a number of years since my wife and I dined at La Grenouille, and we were looking forward to our recent return. It did not let us down. We were seated at a wonderful table, just as you enter the dining room, with a wonderful view of the dining room. The room is lovely, highlighted by the... More

Oh the flowers and the cosy setting is just a dream! We had the most wonderful meal here. Our first time at this well-known restaurant. The service was perfect, not too intrusive but nicely intimate. The foie gras, and steak..melt in your mouth and the flavor of the meat was just spectacular. The soufflé is not to be missed. It's... 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.
