Who charges $3.50 for a tiny club soda? A friend and I came in here on a cold night to catch up and eat some appetizers. Neither of us was in the mood for alcohol so we ordered two club sodas and were given looks by the bartender. So we ordered an appetizer. Even though club soda is only glorified water, I understand why some places need to charge for it. But $3.50 is exorbitant!! And the staff was very unfriendly on top of everything. The place is cute looking, if you're into the upper-east side faux-french decor and overly-perfumed folks dressed in black.

Had a late brunch on Marathon Sunday and was simply taken away by the food. The steak tartare melts in your mouth and the escargot was just out of this world. I can not wait to go back. Demarchelier you have a new regular couple thanks for everything.

I've been reading the past reviews and feel I need to say that I have been there only once but I have been impressed by the quality of the food. Really. I am French and cook French at home and when I go out I do not bother to go to a French restaurant. Demarchelier served us a good quality bistrot cooking, really worth what we were charged. Were we lucky that evening ?! I'll definitely go back there, and I do recommend it to people I know.

Place looks cute and cozy and it is. Service just poor, arms in the air at least at 4 tables at a time. Food unacceptable, the coq au vin was actually dry and stringy, pink in the middle and came to the table actually cold and had to be sent back for reaheating. I would make better myself at home and thats not saying much. Wine very very overpriced. Nice for the bar only.

My husband and I go here often for dinner, since it's right across the street. We really like it. However, if you're looking for a "romantic French bistro", I don't really think this is the place. It is always pretty crowded because it is a popular neighborhood place and the bar is at the entrance (so a lot of people in and out). Tables are close together and it's not quiet because there are usually a lot of people there. Also, there's music and a tv at the bar, so it's not really particularly "romantic", but it's definitely cozy and warm and lively. Basically, I think it's a cute place to go, but you need to expect a little bit more of a "lively" environment before you go.

We both had steak the fillet and the hanger. Both were cooked to perfection. The wine by the glass selection was good. We were there on a Saturday night no reservation seated quickly it was a little breeze inside but over all good. looking forward to going back.

Had lunch here recently...the food was nothing special, tho the service was fast and friendly. Doubt I'd return for dinner.
