Foursquare Tips

  • The bar room is a cool place for after-work cocktails and hors doeuvres, and on the weekends, Benoit serves one of the best brunches in Midtown (it includes a dessert buffet). [Eater 38 Member]
  • The three-course, $25 lunchtime prix fixe menu is one of the better deals in midtown. And per Adam Platt, the signature tarte flambe is worth a special trip.
  • Best millefeuille in New York City
  • If you go here for brunch, definitely try the Three Egg Omelette
  • Amazing place and it really feel like i'm In paris!!! Food is exquisite
  • Franois Payard, chef of Franois Payard Bakery, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Chef Philippes warm chicken salad.
  • Very good lunch option near 5th Ave. The duck is delicious.
  • Lobster salad appetizer is delicious!
  • The Moules Frites are awesome. Service OK. Cocktails a bit pricey.
  • not overly impressed with this place. although service was great, the food didn't live up to the fact that it's part of the Alain Ducasse family of restaurants. stick to the basics here..
  • Skip it. Sorry, but this is the worst restaurant in NYC. Food not even mediocre, service terrible. Ardour, Alain Ducasse and his other high end restos around the world are great, so go there instead.
  • Quite authentic French cuisine and extensive wine list!!! The escargot was small, but tasty and all the fish dishes (+fries) we ordered were all cooked perfectly and delicious
  • They start you off with cheese bread balls, so good! Definitely a pricey place but I enjoyed my scallops and pomme fries.
  • More than just Bistro food level Really solid French cuisine. Love the new bar design.
  • Fantastic! Interesting yet classic. Even just to pop in for the profiterolles is worth a visit!! Great wines and beer. 5 star service.
  • Vesper martini was flawless.
  • Bartenders paid no attention to us.
  • Do not skip these dessert: vanilla millefeuille, chocolate souffl with pistachio ice cream (with crunchy pistachio bits), profiteroles with tableside chocolate sauce service.
  • Grab a seat at the bar, order a drink and some steak frites. Best French bistro in midtown.
  • Was very disappointed. I read "be transported to Paris in NYC" - no way. Terrible ambience. It was so loud I could barely talk to the person next to me.
