La Petite Maison

Should have taken our clue from the fact that the entire place was empty on Mother's Day. There was our table and one other occupied table. They do not use the freshest ingredients, beef was tough, calamari was re-fried, fries were also re-fried or re-heated, the bread was probably day old, no cloth napkins (just cocktail napkins). The truffle macaroni ($52) had some black specs which I guess were the truffles. The supposed self proclaimed (in the menu) famous mashed potato came sour and spoiled. We sent it back, they gave no apologies at all, when I asked for the manager-he simple said that the cream they used was bad. Without asking, he replaced the mashed potato with their soggy french fries-again, no apologies. We were too mad to bother with the dessert. This place is probably still in business because of unsuspecting tourist that stumble in. I'm not sure why some reviewers gave more than 1 star--they may be inexperienced dinners.

We had dinner last night at La Petit Maison. The food was good, but the portions were unbelievably small, yet expensive. The dover sole for two, was basically one portion divided into two, each served with a half portion of a side dish, but charging for two. The rack of lamb was delicious, but small and fatty. The fifteen dollar caesar salad was also unbelievably small in size and a Bombay gin and tonic cost 18.00. They are redoing their wine cellar and had only one type of chardonnay available. We were not informed of this at the time of reservation. I cannot recommend this restaurant.

Had a wonderful dinner Sunday night. The much-improved cuisine and menu was an unexpected pleasure. I was unimpressed this summer with both. Now management and chef seem have a better understanding of the New York market and their competition. The fresh artichoke salad was bright, not heavily dressed, and my main course of sea bass was perfectly cooked. I tasted my date’s scallops served with risotto, again terrific If a restaurant is able to prepare fish and risotto properly, that gets my attention! A warm greeting upon entering the restaurant and friendly staff along with flawless service makes for delighted clientele. Put this one on your list!

Just the facts, more staff than diners on a Friday evening at 8:30. Food was not served hot. Dover sole was mediocre, staff was creepy, standing over your shoulder but did not seem to notice if a water or wine glass was empty. Salt was the main flavoring. Prices are silly. So many better experiences out there, choose one of them.

There's a lot about this place that's surprising. I got to go when my daughter gifted us with a dinner on my last trip to NYC. We got to sit in an "Atrium" area that feels like a garden and is definitely different from the more classic main floor. Everything we ordered was spectacular. My husband was born in Cannes and said that everything tasted like home. We had a nice romantic dinner and will definitely revisit when we go to NYC again!

I absolutely loved this restuarant. My friend and I went for Saturday brunch. It was delicious and a really young atmostphere. We just literally ended up staying there for hours -- into the dinner service. Our other friends met up with us and they accomdoated the additions. Really great service!!

I'm a classically trained chef and loved my experience entirely. The truffle macaroni was the most delicious thing i've had in a long time. Perfectly cooked rigatoni bathing in a white cream sauce laden with black truffles...Come on! it's insane. The lamb was so good it had me in tears. The staff is a bit Euro but they add color to what could otherwise be a more pretentious atmosphere. I love love love it.. i went on saturday and am going again this week... hooked.
