    Food was absolutely excellent as was the service. Risotto was the best I have ever had and I know risotto. Octopus was cooked to perfection as was my wife’s lamb. Prices were quite high. I would return to the restaurant.

    Poor start with a very arrogant hostess. Initially very loud but were moved by the manager without asking. Some of the dishes were excellent but not all. Good wine list (the French). Very nice deserts. Overall a slow start but good ending.

    Joined my granddaughter and boyfriend. Steak tartare , zero flavor, place noisy, no bread served, no salt and pepper on table, fast on wine service and slow on food service. I would not recommend .

    First time at new location. Dined many times over the years at old location on Madison. New place on 61st, near Madison, looks very much like old location. (I understand they saved the wood paneling from the old location and used much of it in the new.) Food was excellent classic French, service very good. Wine was expensive, as it is most places in NY. Very happy to see new La Goulou equal, or exceed original. We will return again.

    On a recent Thursday night my husband and I had the pleasure to have dinner at La Goulue and what a pleasure it was. We were greeted pleasantly and served by several of the personnel who were exceptionally courteous and helpful. The atmosphere added to a very pleasant evening including fine cocktails and very good French delights. Thanks to the entire staff for creating a wonderful evening with top food, very tasty and well prepared, cooked and presented. Treat yourself out to a very lovely experience at this French gem and enjoy the hospitality of such a fine and welcoming staff.

    This was an excellent dining experience for both of us. I am on a gluten-free diet and they even had gluten-free bread. The Margaux wine by the glass was wonderful. The wait staff was very attentive. I have been there several times and have never been disappointed. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
