Guests can choose to dine in the outdoor sidewalk café, main dining room, lively bar or private Cognac Room as they enjoy meals complimented by over 85 varieties of cognac and a gorgeous wine list including first-growth Bordeaux and Burgundies offered by the glass of bottle.

No explanation was given on why there was such a long wait for simple dishes nor why the kitchen or waiter would not ensure that everybody get their food. I ordered the rotisserie chicken, which was dry. Several dishes were served on a ridiculously large bed of dark salad. Nothing was especially tasty. Considering the prices this was a poor experience.

Francisco is the best maitre d' we know. Our waiter was extraordinarily attentive and polite. My two soufflés - cheese and chocolate - were perfection. Our bottle of Chablis barely made it through the meal.

French fries are great but they don't have any good sauce to dip them in. Bearnaise sauce is absolutely DISGUSTING and not really Bearnaise. Butternut squash soup was bitter and otherwise tasteless. Our waiter was inattentive and not very professional. Overall I felt disgusted and ripped off

Outdoor diners had already settled in and most of the tables were gone. Inside the room quietly bustled. We were awarded the best table for two in the entire restaurant: back corner to the left, side by side, perfect view of the restaurant and outdoors. We ordered 2 specialty cocktails, gougeres, mussels and Sancerre. The cocktails were fun:Greygoose Evening in Paris and a spicy Margarita. This was the first spring evening after a long winter, and with the doors open at the restaurant it became a magical dining experience, especially after the pandemic. We loved it, the staff was superb, as was the food.

Had an issue which the manager called to talk about the following day and he made things a million times worse. Would not recommend the place. Many other better French places.

My guest was at the denist and was one hour late. I sat outside and the waiter hardley paid any attention to me at all. I asked for coffee and some bread. which took a long time. I have always enjoyed lunch outside but thiswas pure negect. and the coffee was in a thermos outside. And I told the waiter my friend was at the dentist and would be late. Thank you for your attention

Francisco is the best maître d' on the Upper East Side, which is the part of town we frequent for 100% of our dining out. The menu is excellent, particularly the soufflés and the filet mignon. The staff could not be more agreeable and helpful.

It was Easter so the restaurant was very crowded. We reserved an indoor table, but there was a wait. So we opted for an outdoor in the tent. It was quite cold, and still rather crowded, but they were sweet and let us take our time. The mussels and eggs Benedict were excellent! With frites of course. Will definitely return but will ask for something upstairs next time.

Made a 12pm reservation, their first of the day. They were not ready to seat at noon, which was annoying, but it was only maybe 5 minutes wait. The food was good - quality of the cuisine is not an issue there. But we had just paid the bill and were finishing our coffee when a very embarrassed looking waiter came over to us after speaking to the hostess to tell us we needed to go because he had another table waiting. We hadn't even been sitting for a full hour and I still had coffee in my cup. I've never had that happen before in my life. I will never go back.
