I love this place. I ordered the french onion soup and it was the best I ever had. The staff and host were very friendly and accomodating. While most places won't sit an incomplete party, this place was fine doing it even though it was a busy time of day and there was a line formed. Definitely try this place.

This is a restaurant with staying power. The food is good and the atmosphere is that of a comfortable, reliable standby. The pommes frites are highly recommended. The small outdoor deck on the second floor is a real treat-but be warned, the fire code won't allow fondue outside.

Had a pre-broadway matinee lunch here. The soup was fantastic. Wonderful for lunch or light dinner. Our party had three different soups and a burger. Everyone was truly satisfied. We will definitely be back.

I have been to this place many times. This place in one of my kids favorite in the city, which is great because it is affordable. The servers are more often great than not. The food is always excellent. I highly recommend this place to anyone that loves good French food.

I was on a personal visit to Manhattan and had heard about this as an easy and moderate place for a solo luncheon or dinner. When I arrived at 5;30, I was seated quickly by the front window, 1st floor, with full view of entrance-- so I saw all the diners enter over the next hour. The maitre d' worked the door & seemed to pick up on each party's needs. The wait staff was extremely courteous and efficient. The food arrived quickly and was served as it should be, very hot, and the wine was reasonably priced although I opted out of Beaujolais. Very good presentation. People watching is very easy here as you sit close.

Quel mignon! What amazes me about this cute, petit bistro is how they can provide what they do at such excellent prices in the neighborhood where they are situated. I believe that is the reason for the crowd. Their luncheon menu is a bargain offering soup, salad, bread, wine and desert for under $16!!! Unheard of in NYC. The pre fixe is bountiful. I usually have a hard time finishing it. But, j'adore les bonnes soupes, especially the Soupe à l'Oignon! And if your not into wine, have their French cidre which is wonderful. Another favorite is the fondue, but you better be hungry for that one, it is plentiful. If you want un petit gout of the working class lunch, try the Croque Monsieur or Croque Madame. It is reminiscent of my lunches in Paris. If you are in a hurry, let the waiter know and they will accommodate. This place is no passing fancy for me. I have become a regular. So avoid les bousculades and go early!

The food is the best thing about La Bonne Soupe. Although they say they have a 2nd floor, its still very crowded and it feels like everyone is on top of each other. Service is great, there's nothing wrong with that. This restaurant doesnt exactly have a trendy scene though.
