I'm in the nursing field and the best way to ease-off the day is to sit and have a good home made meal! A very special New York friend invited me to this amazing restaurant! The "Coq au Vin" was absolutely amazing! Wow! Strongly recommended!

The atmosphere, the music, the food and the famous chef is outstanding. I am bringing my mom back here. She would love it! You feel the warmth and devotion to the food & customers in every bite. I will definitely be back!

New York is full of surprises and one of the good ones is Chez Le Chef. We passed by and noticed the homey decor and went in for coffee not knowing we're getting so much more. Chef Friedhelm is so accommodating even whipping fresh cream for one apple strudel. It was the best I ever tasted and I will definitely come back and try the brunch. This is one of New York's best places.

I am so happy we stepped in your wonderful place! It is filled with so much love and the selection of sweet things is exquisite. This is not New York anymore, it feels like a fairy-tale experience, as if for a moment you are a part of an old, very beautiful bedtime story where everyone is kind and loving and miracles happen on every corner. Loved every second and bit of Chez le Chef. Thank you for this amazing place!

My husband and I stopped in, thinking the food might be as fun as the kitschy decor. It was horrendous. Our waiter didn't speak English, so the chef took our order. We waited forever. My tomato-fennel soup was so over-seasoned and had so many fibrous bits in it that I could only eat half, despite being ravenous by the time it was served. My husband's omelet did not have the advertised sausage in it. My chef's salad was peppered with brown bits of -- celery? At the end of the meal, our bill came to almost seventy dollars for an omelet, soup, a salad, and a coffee; they wanted to charge us 15% for the nonexistent service and for refilling my husband's coffee. I've never written a restaurant review before, but our awful experience inspired me. We will never go back, and we urge you to avoid the place altogether.

Brunch was horrible. French toast that tasted frozen. A garden omelet that looked like leftovers from a vegetarian's garbage bin dumped in with a hot dog and half an egg. Is this what French food is really like? Also, the prices are way too high, and adding the tip into the bill is just not cool, even when the bill is served with cookies (which were stale). A pity, because the venue has charm and the area could use some more choices.
