  • A classic French bistro, this is a great place for an upscale and classy meal - and a cocktail or glass of champagne.
  • Restaurante con decoracin moderna y ambiente joven,su cocina es fusin de sabores franceses y latinos. Muy recomendable el Brunch del domingo. Ha salido varias veces en la serie "Sexo en Nueva York".
  • Food was decent but the crepes are a sacrilege to any French person.
  • As appetizer try their grilled octopus, is crispy and balanced. For main,the Duck To Ways is to die for, tender and juicy. As dessert,the Apple Tatin (the star was the cinnamon ice cream, perfect.)
  • The filet mignon is superb on the restaurant week menu. The appetizers are good too.
  • A spiral staircase separates this massive below-street-level space from Fifth Avenue. Duck in for the calm and stay for classic French salads, soups, eggs, and a flute of something sparkling.
  • Great place - the bouillabaisse was as good as in France. Meat was well cooked and tender. Try the macaron as desert!
  • Julian, the executive chef is amazing!
  • Awesome subterranean space for after work drinks
  • get the brunch buffet.
  • Ok food go w steak
  • We ate seafood Plato with oysters- was good and not so crowdy and loud.
  • A good French restaurant
  • good food, big portions.
  • Brasserie 8 review: Brasserie 8 Serves Sophistication in Midtown Manhattan.
  • Had the Monday lobster night menu & the restaurant week menu. The food was really just ok - Duck breast was ok. Steak was ok. Lobster was ok. Service was A+.
  • Everything's good but overall a forgettable meal
  • Beautiful space. I highly recommend the filet mignon , goat cheese fritters, and crab cake! so so so good
  • The wild Scottish salmon and polenta was enough to fill me up. Salmon wasn't dry and the polenta was a big bowl
  • Best buffet brunch ever
