  • La Grenouille

    C'est magnifique!

    We're life-long residents of the San Francisco Peninsula and we have visited NYC annually for many years. When we do, we dine one evening at La Grenouille. It's a pilgrimage. In a world of overpromise and underdelivery, it is reassuring that there are some things that do not disappoint. One of them is La Grenouille. To call our experiences here merely "fine dining", is to damn with faint praise. La Grenouille satisfies the soul, the heart, and the appetite. Consistently. It's so much more than a restaurant.

    Blown Away

    Wow. What a special night we had all around at La Grenouille. My husband and I are so glad we chose this spot to celebrate our first anniversary. The food is the best french food in town - so perfectly executed, sauced, seasoned, etc. The ultimate in flavor pairings and classic french dishes yet with a lighter seemingly simplified touch. Knowing that simplification takes a lot of talent! And the service can not be beat. They allow you to take your time and wanted to make sure that we had a special night. Fabulous wine recommendation. I had the asparagus and poached egg followed by the duck with rhubarb. Both two of the most delicious plates I've had in this city! Have never had duck that was cooked so well!!!! Both outstanding. My husband had the shrimp and lobster ravioli followed by the dover sole. Both utterly scrumptious. Thank you thank you La Grenouille for a very memorable and delectable first anniversary meal!!!!

    Always Number One

    As the classic restaurants fall by the wayside, and as newcomers try gamely to impress, the one dining room in New York that continually delivers the ultimate French experience is La Grenouille. The warm greeting at the front from Charles and Armel, a crisp Martini with Brian au bar, and Charles' gorgeous flowers begin the evening. In the dining room, the Captains preside over your service with a crisp formality, and a confident familiarity that makes you feel right at home. The kitchen remains excellent, and the wine list is very well chosen ,and nicely priced for a venue of this caliber. Oysters in Champagne Sauce, kissed by the broiler, followed by perfect baby lamb chops, and then a Souffle Grand Marnier. Glorious. The last sion of Le Pavillon, and still the standard by which all others are jusdged. I pray La Grenouille outlives me and my children by another 100 years. Merci!

    if I could think of a better superlative in french or English, I would use it. I had been here many years ago, and wanted to try it again. It was a special occasion and we could not have made a better choice. The seting , the service and yes oc course the food were all outsatnding. It is one of the few of the old French haute cuisine restaurants left, but it has not lost anything rather gained. I cannot recommend it enough. If you want to treat yourself. run to La Grenouille.

    Unbeatable class, food, and service!

    This is my first time ever posting on Menupages, but after dining at La Grenouille, I felt compelled to register and post about the wonderful dining experience my boyfriend and I shared! I had made reservations and told them that we were celebrating our one-year anniversary, and when we arrived, the maitre'd and head waiter both wished us a happy one year on their own accord. We were seated at a corner table. The sofa seats were made of red velvet and were so comfortable! The decor was also gorgeous and the customers very worldly. I agree with all the other reviews that state that this restaurant is very classic French, and one of the last standing "old world" restaurants in NYC. Service was excellent, and all the waiters were older and male. The bread rolls were amazing! We ordered the ceviche de snapper to start, which was very unique and tasty. It had a citrus flavor to it. The caviar on top was a delight. For entrees, my boyfriend had beef tenderloin, which was really good and cooked to perfection. I had the sauteed frogs legs which were out of this world!!!!!!! It's hard to explain in words just how delicious they were, but I definitely recommend it to all. Definitely the best frogs legs I've ever had in my life. The waiter suggested that I use my hands, and he even gave me a finger bowl to wash my fingers afterward. We shared a chocolate souffle for dessert. It was HUGE! I'd never seen such a large dessert in my life! It was about 7-8 inches in diameter and very scrumptious too. We overheard a waiter mention that only customers wearing ties were seated in the front room! Other than that, jackets are required for men. Everyone was dressed very well. Overall, I had an excellent time at La Grenouille and cannot wait to go back for more! Both the service and food were so impeccable that I cannot think of a better way we could have celebrated our one year together!

    Went there last night for dinner with my husband for the first time and it was fantastic. Food was phenomenal and so was the service. Average age is definitely a bit on the older side, but wonderful place to spend a special event. You have to try the salmon cerviche...it's light and flavorful. The grand marnier souflee was awesome as well and we both loved our entrees. On the pricey side and the two tip line on the bill definitely threw me off (one for waiter and one for head waiter) but overall, it was a great experience.

    One of the best for French food in New York. The service is great, the food is great, the atmosphere is great. I prefer dining upstairs which is really quaint and has fewer people. The main floor is the "power" floor where everyone wants to be seen. Fine if you need that.
