The restaurant is small and the service is a bit slow when crowded, but all in all this is a wonderfully quaint little French restaurant near Lincoln Center. While I enjoyed my whole meal, the profiteroles were quite literally the icing on the cake.

An unpretentious little, literally little French restaurant two steps from Lincoln Center and Central Park West. Classic traditional french bistro food. The roast duck is delicious.

Food was rather good though not memorable or exciting.however service was unfriendly and not professional, perhaps out french waiter had bad day.Tables are terribly crammed in a very small space, so impression that everybody is sitting at the same table.It was OK, but can not add any more.Prices were reasonable

Came here before a matinee at the Met and had a lovely meal. Food was excellent and service just right. Wish I had a place just like this in my own neighborhood!

Had dinner here with a large group on short notice. One of the few places that would accommodate a group of 12. This was the our second visit and it was as good as the first. Menu has a variety of items, food was prepared very well and the service was attentive.

Wife and I dined there before our Opera at Met. They are very close to the Lincoln center (5 mins walk) and they offer pre-theater fixed menu for $50/pp for 3 course meal. It's a very small and tight restaurant where coat check is mandatory. Food is plentiful unlike typical french restaurants. Wife had salmon dish that she wasn't too... More

Six of us had dinner early on a Monday evening so there was no real pressure. And this is the "local" of one of the couples, so that ensured outstanding service. The country pâté in aspic and endive(and other greens) salad with chevre were excellent starters. Salmon entree was as good as it gets and basic roast chicken was also... More

We visited this tiny French restaurant last night before the NY Philharmonic concert. Their pre-theatre menu was substantial and augmented with several specials. The daily pasta was mushroom stuffed ravioli in a light tomato sauce, available as an appetizer or entree. It was excellent. Most of your table of four had the veal medallions special, which was tender and very... More

New York is famous for stores and restaurants that are about 17 feet wide. This place is small but the food is worth a visit. A note of cauton, do not expect fast service.

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
