    tres bien

    A little cramped. That's the last bad thing in this review. The food was outstanding, huge portions, great value. Very good menu to choose from and left very satisfied. Had a great meal with an old friend and we could actually hear each other.

    So pleased!

    We had lunch at Bonne Soupe this past Saturday; it was a very good experience, and well worth the 20 minute wait for a table. The line for a seat almost snaked out the door by the time we left the restaurant, so clearly, they are doing something right to keep their customers happy. I will certainly return to eat there again. They were very busy, but the wait staff was attentive and polite and the meal arrived quickly so we still made our curtain time. The omelet Paysanne was huge, and served with a good salad of Boston lettuce, with a Dijon dressing and a basket of excellent bread and butter. Excellent value!

    Consistent Gem of a Bistro

    We have eaten at La Bonne Soupe many times for a decade and have never gotten anything less than our money's worth. They are MUCH more friendly than most NY bistros and the waitstaff will actually have a conversation with you! An extraordinary value and our personal "go to" nosh spot.

    very poor service

    The waitress was very arrogant and pushy. trying to force us to order their "combo", which is soup and salad, while I was asking for the separate order of French onion soup and Salad Nicoise. She pretended not to hear it while I repeated the name three times. As the result she brought their "Garden"? salad and soup. Water glasses were never refilled and they charge us gratuity tax (party of 2) for this wonderful service

    Just like being in France

    For those that understand the surly French and appreciate "proper" bistro cooking, this place can't be beaten. The food isn't Michelin starred stuff but it is fantastic, unpretentious hearty fare. The service is not American style - ie if you don't like something cos you're fussy, they won't care! Don't take it personally. They serve their fondue with a salad to start and unlimited bread so I agree it's great value especially in pricey New York.

    Fantastic little find!

    I love this place. I eat here every month when I'm in NYC. Great value for the money, great atmosphere (lively and oh-so-New York), great neighborhood. Can't wait to try it when the weather is warm and I can sit outside on the patio. The food is wonderful. For $20, you can get soup, salad, bread, drink, and dessert. How can you go wrong?

    There's a reason...

    If you read all the other reviews, you will see a pattern: the restaurant gets plaudits for good bistro-style food at very fair prices. We eat there often when going to a nearby theater, and it never disappoints. Crepes are large and light as a feather; soups are filling and good; steak hache (their "hamburgers") are big, thick, juicy and very filling, even without the usual bun. Caveats: 1) they will not seat you until your entire party has arrived. 2) due to its popularity (and the tiled floors), it can be quite noisy at peak dinner hours. But, if you walk along 55th Street you will pass at least 5 other restaurants, and they will be empty when "Soupe" is jammed. There is a reason...
