Great food, good wine. The staff is French and so tbe service is very French. The people complaining about tbe service clearly do not appreciate the cultural differences. The place does have a tendency to get noisy when full.

Strolled past place walking down 9th avenue and the chalkboard sign out front caught my attention: mussels and frites for 17 dollars including a glass of wine. Cant beat that value. The charming hostess greeted me warmly and I sat down at the bar. The white wine was restricted to chardonnay or pinot grigio. The mussels were cooked to pefecion in a white wine and garlic sauce. The fries were served with a delicious garlic mayo. Cute intimate spot with a cozy atmosphere. The bartender was preoccupied most of the time but the server I had was friendly.

Recently had mussels on the LES. Y+The mussels were excellent and the service was also, but I can;t say that for La Carafe.The mussels were properly cooked, but that;s about it. we arrived and the restaurant was almost empty, but the service was terrible. The included wine was better on the LES and the frites were much crispier on the LES. Ninth Avenue has one restaurant after another. There is no reason to go back to this one. P.S. When we asked for small seafood/mussel forks the manager came out with "ONE" saying that they didn't have those forks and their customers didn't request them...well. The "friend" pf the owner was looking to help the pre-theater crowd. Decide what type of clients you want: the pre-theater crowd expects decent service and a minimal knowledge of utensils.
