    a perfect gem

    Our hotel suggested this restaurant as we found ourselves not wanting to travel too far from where we were staying for dinner. The menu had multiple things I wanted to order but seeing the calf liver dictated the decision. it was cooked perfectly and the sides with it divine...The beet salad (one of three I had while in NYC was the best and most generous serving...We were a large party and everyone loved their choices. a hit!

    Not Recommended for Vegetarians

    A friend invited me to this restaurant for brunch today. I looked at the menu online which had several vegetarian options, and I was very excited to go, Well the restaurant was only serving their Mother's Day Menu, which was a $45 prix fixe with NO vegetarian entrees. I told the server that I do not eat meat and asked if there was a vegetarian dish they could serve. He asked another server in Spanish, then turned to me and simply said "no". I told him that I saw a lovely Eggs Florentine on their regular brunch menu, and asked if he could speak with the kitchen to see if they could possibly serve that, or another vegetarian option. He came back and said "No they cannot serve that. Are you ready to order?". No apologies, no acknowledgement...just a push to hurry up and order one of the dishes that I couldn't eat. Now, the friend who brought me has eaten here SEVERAL times and knows many of the waiters, and she says that she has always had a wonderful experience. But in my opinion, the food was so-so and does nothing to make up for the utter lack of accomodatiton for an EXTREMELY simple request that many restaurants deal with every day. I'm just sorry that my friend paid $45 for a pea soup and a side of tomatoes/leeks. What a shame.

    Good food - adequate service - poor manners

    I have been familiar with the work of Chef Delouvrier for twenty years. He is a talented chef who has worked at many temples of fine dining in NYC. There is always a reason he moves on, mostly that his cuisine is not up to the price points the establishment is selling. I was very pleased to learn he was at La Mangeoire and the cuisine was country fare. My wife and I went out for dinner - what would we find? The food was above average, as were the prices. The place was quite full and people were clearly enjoying. Frisee salad was fresh, cleverly composed but underseasoned ( a recurrent theme). Escargots cleverly prepared and tasty. Coq au vin was the best dish and very good. Desserts bland; service by an old time Frenchman was non attentive - like we were lucky to have him. Bill almost $200 with a tip. Not a thank you by the waiter of the front of the house man on our leaving. This place is good and deserves a visit. If you are treated as we were, I don't suggest a return.

    Recommended

    I usually do some research and read reviews to chose a new place to eat out but at this time my friend and I were passing by this restaurant and decided to have dinner there. We had the pre-fix dinner for $30.00 (smoked salmon, coq au vin and dark chocolate mousse). My friend had the other choice for the pre-fix dinner and was also very pleased. Good ambiance and very attentive and helpful staff. I'm glad we went to this restaurant and will surely recommend it to our friends.

    Not recommended

    I usually dont write reviews but this time it is a must. Food was mediocre at best. It took a milion years to cook the veal. Liver was raw despite those milion years it took to cook. The scallops were burned and with grains of sand on some of them. The fish was decent extremely expensive for the microscopic size of the portions.

    Best value for money in French food

    Went there because 4 Star Chef, Christian Delouvrier is now the chef. Ambiance has always been quaint and cozy authentic like a bistro in south of France, but now the food is great too! Had the special of the month (Potee) and want to go back for month before end of February. Lighter than a cassoulet, better tasting than a pot au feu. You can't get this dish anywhere else!

    Will not go back

    Went Xmas day and had the worst experience. The salmon (2 inch by 2 inch) served on a plate of mas potatoes. Not worth the price. Server asked while we were still drinking coffee us to leave so they can have the table. The bill was over 200.00 and not worth it. We've been there before but would definitely not go back.
