After years of coming here I no longer do brunch because it's disappointing. I took someone here for a birthday dinner and we had a great time. The fish was seasoned well although I felt mine was undercooked for the type of white fish. I never had such cold brocoli rabe. The Lychee Champagne mimosa was great too. Beer and wines are always a treat here but they may not always have what you want as it varies. The late night 2am breakfast is way better than the overcrowded brunch service. And the french themed brunch options are a real disappointment.But Thank God the coffee is still dark and always good 24hours.

We love the fact that the place stays open and is able to accomodate groups in different sizes... but the food is not good. Menu is decent but the food quality is poor!

Coffee great - food not so & tasted & looked old. Will not return.

The food is mediocre (flavorless onion soup, croque monsieur without white sauce) and the service is slow. The only thing going for it is its location. The fries are okay though.

I don't eat out all that much but when I do, I either want to do one of 2 things: Try a new place and place my cards (or bills in this case) on the table. It is a risk. A Gamble. Other times, I want to go to a place that is solid, that I know well, and that always delivers the service for said "bills". French Roast is that place. We stopped in last night and as always, sat at the bar. I truly do not understand why anyone sits at a table. The bartenders were fantastic and fun and we adore MATUA (a great NZ Sauv Blanc). I had salmon and my gf the burger. Awesome. Just plain awesome. I love the food, the vibe, the people who plop down next to us. There is an openness to this place and as long as you go in with a smile, sans attitude, you will get exactly that in return (plus a good meal that won't burn your wallet). Love you French Roast. Keep on keepin' on.

We used to rely on this place as a top contender for dinner in the upper west side... Service has always been fine for me but the last time I dined there I realized that food quality has taken a dive over time. yes, if you like a cup of coffee - go. If you want a mid-rare burger, do not go (bc it will be well well done). Their appearance and marketing are good, quality is week. It's one of those places where people go because they like to be seen... yet come on people, nobody is looking... get real UWS, or move to UES...
