I went for lunch once a while ago and the sandwich was very good, so I went again for dinner with my wife. The service was very friendly and efficient, which was basically the best thing of the whole evening. The appetizer of fried veggies was good, just made and delicate. The fish was very dry and way too salty (with capers and olive tapenade), the ribs that I had ordered were not ribs but a shapeless chunk of very fatty meat, the panna cotta was adequate, the Arborio rice pudding was hard and dry (and in a cup so small that one couldn't put the spoon inside without spilling it). The woman, chef/owner at one point came out to chat with the customers (which is nice), but then just grabbed my coat saying "We'll put this in the coat check" without even asking me. When I said that it was OK where it was (I keep my wallet and cell phone etc in it) she kept insisting and then she said, "but someone can trip on it".

The food was average and I'm not too concerned about atmosphere but the quality of the service,disinterested and charmless, put me off visiting again.

The best homemade spaghetti with wild mushrooms I've ever had worth travellig.

A bunch of interesting and delicious choices.. I've had crab cakes with poached egg.. The brick egg dish and poblano eggs.. Unusual without being pretentious.

As ex Jarnac regulars, we tried this place. Unfortunately, our experience was disappointing. Bland food,no atmosphere and appalling service.

Second time at this haunt for discriminating villagers. Owners have decided to forgo the pomp and circumstance. Decor straight forward and simple. Focus is on food quality and presentation. Want a scene go else where, want hand crafted, quality food come here. Pasta so fresh it's still breathing. No box pasta here. If you don't know the difference De La Gare is a good place to start. Not uncommon to be served and chatted up by Chef Mary Ann who seems to know the customers personally. The size of the place allows old world individual service. Handsome, knowledgeable staff provide a welcomed formality. That they are wearing jeans makes this bohemian feel at home though.

All four in our party ordered something different and nothing disappointed. Each dish was obviously planned and executed with care that resulted in visually appealing dishes that were marvelous taste treats. Everything was priced fairly and each course reflected what the menu described. We all left happily after dining in a new, attractive space that offered interesting, creative, and delicious food. Sadly, after seeing too many restaurants in the West Village close, it is a delight to see a winner open.
