    Not that great

    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.

    Great value in Midtown!

    We first learned about this restaurant while surfing menupages.com. It was 3 blocks from our hotel, very convenient if you are in Midtown. We were seated right away, and had great service. The food was simple and tasty--everything I expect in a French Bistro. We had the pate, french "lasagna" and a chopped steak with creme carmel for dessert. Will definitely return and recommend to friends.

    When in the city I always find my way to LaBonne Soupe. The food is delightful, although the wait staff could be a bit more pleasant. I think I've had everything on the menu and can't wait for my next fix. Keep up the good work. I bought the cookbook about 6 years ago and have delighted relatives and friends with many of the recipe's.

    Cheap and Cozy

    This is my favorite restaurant in the world. The creme andalouse is deeeeeeeelicious, the bread is deeeelicious, the cheese fondue delightful. I don't mind that the staff is a bit testy. They are really busy. A+.

    Poor Service but Great Prix Fix

    I've been to this restaurant a handful of times because it's close to my job. Each time the service has been quite poor but if you can ignore that the food is excellent. The restaurant is a little crowded with the tables on top of each other. If you have a choice between the chocolate mousse and the creme caramel go with the mousse. The creme caramel doesn't have that layer of sugary caramel on the top. The creme caramel at La Bonne Soupe is syrup poured over a custard.

    Love the soups, bread, atmosphere....!

    Their soups are always delicious as are the baguettes. Great, authentic French atmosphere, service is friendly and one is never rushed -- that would be so un-French. Very good prices -- $6 for a bowl of French onion soup in Midtown in pleasant surroundings is far from pricey. Will be back often. Fast-food Hale & Hearty soups are $4-5 and not as good.

    Pretty good but -

    Matre'd was rude. Refused to let me sit until my guest arrived, but sat 2 other tables with single people (guess they were dining alone?). Once she arrived.... we were sat promptly, then came the cute French waitress, then the limited menu, then came the fairly decent Parisian fare accompanied by typical brasserie box au vin. Croque Madame - not too shabby. I wolfed it. All in all a good time -- overpriced -- but pretty good.
