Intimate atmosphere, great food, and very professional wait staff. Don't miss out on the souffle.

I never tire of this restaurant. It's quiet and friendly with delicious food. Anything with vinaigrette (leeks, asparagus, avocado) is wonderful and the fries are cooked to perfection. And they know how to make a proper champagne cocktail-you can't go wrong at Petite Auberge!

After 30 years this Murray Hill fixture remains charming with reliably good cooking of old favorites like steak frites (love the bearnaise sauce!), beef bordelaise, sole meuniere and daily specials, all offered at good value. Appetizers to recommend include asparagus vinaigrette, coquilles St Jacques, even escargots in delicious garlic butter. Nice complimentary salad after appetizer. Service is professional & friendly--owner Marcel is especially gracious. This kind of neighborhood place is what we need more of.

We were looking for a nice, cozy place to enjoy french food in the neighborhood.. and although the ambiance did not disappoint, the food and service did. The sole was extremely dry, the appetizers and desserts were just ok. Although most of the waiters were nice, some were extremely rude and very offensive. Customers can definitely find a better restaurant to spend their money on.

We showed up (3 of us) last night (Sat) with no reservation and they were able to give us a nice table, in a warm spot. My mates had never been there and I told them they were in for an unfettered but positive dining experience of simply good French food. We all enjoyed our meals - the garlic/butter/parsley sauce of the escargots was amazing and we all dipped the fresh baguette into it heartily. The French Onion soup was very good and my leeks vinaigrette good though a bit saucy and perhaps too cold a night for such a refreshing kind of dish. Prix fixe came with a salad not mentioned anywhere as well, which was a nice surprise. My canard a l'orange was delicious and quite meaty for duck. The coq au vin was deeply flavorful with a generous portion, and the sole meuniere was delicious but sauce-free unfortunately. The fish was cooked to perfection, but I've never seen it served with no sauce. We asked for some and they brought a gravy boat of hot butter out. Still, it was good. The choc. mousse wasn't as fine as I remember it from two years ago (tasted a little more stretched with milk or something) but tasty. The cheesecake was mediocre std fare. In all though, we had a wonderful dining exp. there.

We ordered from the prix fix menu and the duck entree is outstanding. The onion soup is tasty and the chocolate mousse is also great. The only negative review is that they do not have froie gras

I met a friend for the prix fixe ($19.95) lunch. I had onion soup (sort of tasteless--used to it being very salty), coq au vin (excellent deep flavorful sauce), and mousse with decaf. Bread was crusty and good. My friend had leeks vinagrette, calves livers and cremes glacees. He enjoyed them all as did I. Service was attentive and efficient. The livers were slightl;y underdone but quickly remedied, with profuse apologies. It might've helped that my friend is a regular there. Excellent food, top notch service, good value. Worth a try.
