  • One of the most classic, and consistently fabulous French restaurants in all of New York. I hope it's here forever!
  • I can't imagine a better dining experience. Went to Le Perigord with my wife for our anniversary and everything was so wonderfully prepared.This may be our new spot for special occasions.
  • Try the new Beef Wellington burger. You won't be disappointed.
  • An Old Guard institution serving no-nonsense classic French Cuisine. Start with the Vegetable Tart, the then Buffet Froid and finish with the Dover Sole.
  • A classic french restaurant for the upper east side set. Wonderful food and a dessert trolley that was well worth asking for two. Two tables away sat Henry Kissinger, telling stories.
  • Ask for the suffle before hand
  • Came here during restaurant week - definitely glad I didn't pay full price for the food. The vegetable tart was delicious but everything else was just okay.
  • Vegetable tart
  • Vegetable tart is to die for. A meal in itself.
  • Old school resto that's only kept afloat by its equally old regulars. Decent food at not so decent prices. Stuffy and condescending maitre d' does not help.
  • Full of old people, dark, and freezing. Food is good though.
  • If you eat one thing, make it the chocolate souffle.
  • Dover sole is mind blowing. Mustard sauce is decadent and necessary!
  • Truely classic, upscale French, but not stuffy. Great lamb!
  • Great lunch here with Mom. The gravlax is amazing, as is the baked alaska, as is everything!!
  • Iconic NYC landmark with some of the best French food in the city. I recommend the turbot. Exceptional!
  • Avoid this restaurant. Service is rude, food is mediocre. We were here during restaurant week. $38 for a full meal was reasonable. But, the food is like tourists food in Paris - not the real thing.
  • Make sure to dress properly. The lobster bisque is one of the best I've ever had. I saved about $15 at lunch with my FoodFan Select card which was neat.
  • Its no wonder why Le Perigord is such a popular destination for evening meals no matter what day of the week. In our visit we were treated like kings and ate like kings as well their signature roas
