    Not Recommended

    Not cozy & Uncomfortable seating. Went for brunch. Frisée Salad with Lardons was tasteless, underdressed, & lardons were inedible..totally dry. Cobb salad also tasteless with dry chicken & the same overlooked lardons.

    So many other places to go, skip this!

    We read the reviews and thought we'd give it a try. This is not a cozy French bistro. There is nothing cozy about the place. It is large with wooden tables close together, no table clothes. Service is atrocious, very slow and unfriendly. Food is just ok. Steak tartare was acceptable. Onion soup was good.

    Theater goers steer clear

    This restaurant is located in the heart of times square, but if you need to a make a show, steer clear. The service is slow and the food takes forever to come out. When we asked our waiter how long the food was going to be - after advising him at the beginning of the meal that we had a show to make - he responded, "we get busy around this time for the shows, so the kitchen is backed up." A table next to us had the same response. As for the food, one of my dining companions had the escargot appetizer, which was fine. I ordered the seafood bruschetta and asked that the sauce be on the side, and requested steamed vegetables instead of sautéed. Neither of my requests were honored. The fish was doused in sauce - but, no wonder, it was chewy and did not taste fresh. Obviously the sauce was used to mask the taste. Another dining companion had a salad, which was topped with a stale piece of pita that was so hard to bite into, you could chip a tooth. Overall, this place is a real loser.

    Red Snapper was Good

    The only part of this restaurant I liked was the man I was with. The fish was good, and the veggies okay, the drink was great as was the cherry on top :o), was that rice it was served with ? The waitress was unfriendly

    Very satisfying

    Even after reading all the negative reviews, I still wanted to try Brasserie Athenee. I've learned from past experience not to rely on reviews because each diner's experience is unique. I was highly satisfied with my dining experience. I enjoyed the mussels and frites accompanied by a nice French rose. The service was attentive at the appropriate times and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Prices were reasonable. What's not to like?

    The atmosphere and aesthetics are absolutely lovely but when the food came out it was absolutely unrefined and really very grotesque.

    Not recommended

    A nightmare. The food was not fresh. The wine served was not the one ordered. The cherry on the cake: A 18% gratuity is included even If you are 2 to eat. To sum up .... a place to avoid.
