La Bonne Soupe

Food was delicious, but presentation was very poor. Had to wait 20 minutes just for the menu. Although the prices are great, we probably won't go again and won't recommend it also.

I like La Bonne Soupe. The food is satisfying, tasty familiar. The staff, though a little distracted, is quite friendly. I would reccomend it always.

Although the food was adequate, the service and atmosphere were certainly not. I would not recommend this establishment.

I went here recently with some friends and family. The food was absolutely delicious! The cheese fondue was great, as was the salad. The service was slow, and we often had to get the waitress' attention for water, salad dressing, or even just to order. Overall, even though the service was slow, the food was great and we all were pleased with our meals.

One of my French ex-pat friends brought me here for the first time a couple of years ago. Said it reminded him of home (Paris). Cozy, good value, tasty. Now, I introduce my other friends to it. Definitely worthwhile. You can get salad, an entree sized soup, dessert, coffee/tea for around $17 for dinner.

La Bonne Soupe is the perfect spot for a light lunch. You wouldn't go there if you were looking for a long, relaxing and upscale dining experience, but it's perfect for a fall day or a quick lunch during the work day. The place serves great, unpretentious salads, with a tasty dressing that will make you want to buy a bottle of it to take home. The minestrone soup is something you could eat several days in a row and the price is cheap!! Overall, it is actually one of my favorite places to eat lunch in the city!

La Bonne Soup is a charming French restaurant that greatly disappoints with low quality food and a pretentious clientele that actually believes they are eating French food. The restaurant is perfect for those who have never experienced a true meal in Paris or people who cannot afford La Grenouille or Le Bernardin. The French Onion soup lacks flavor, body, richness and complexity; the cheese on top was overburnt and the onions were as limp and lifeless. The complimentary red wine served with lunch was a third rate Chilean cabernet sauvignon. After my substandard meal, I still held out high hopes that dessert would have been much better. Dessert consisted of a bitter tasting coffee and a room temperature crepe filled with banana and sprinkled with chocolate syrup and powdered sugar. The crepe was the most disappointing aspect of the entire meal - lifeless and prosaic, an exercise in gastronomic futility. For outstanding French food fly to Paris and avoid La Bonne Soupe.
