    SO much better!

    I went last year when they opened - not impressed - surprised that the chef turned out such mediocre fare - LOVE his other restaurants. But have been back and each time is better than the last - it's amazing. There is not a bad thing on the menu - great wines - I don't love the design but it's a very warm and activated space - it truly feels like you're in a film about a restaurant in New York. Nothing not to love. Yay.

    Great food, wonderful exerience!

    Carmellini shines once again-off to a rough start when they first opened, this restaurant shines! The food is wonderful, service superb and the Sommelier is one of the best I have encountered! What a fun evening we had and a dining experience to be remembered. We have been back several times and the food and wines are consistently good. So glad this restaurant can be placed in the same category of La Conde Verde and The Dutch.

    Beautiful restaurant with overpriced, disappointing food

    Lafayette is a beautiful space, especially during the holidays, when the windows are decorated with wreaths and lights. The service was friendly and attentive. However, the food was disappointing and overpriced. My steak was devoid of any dry-aged flavor, and was dry even though I ordered it medium-rare. The egg lafayette was good, but I would not pay $9 again for one deviled egg.

    Great Restaurant

    I have to disagree with some of the negative reviews that I have read & which almost kept me away from this wonderful restaurant. Went there Saturday night. Sat outside by choice. Had Heirloom tomato salad, Halibut, Steak Frittes & a marvelous strawberry dessert. All were delicious. The service was great. The wine was terrific. We had a fabulous dining experience.

    Will Definitely Go Again

    We were invited by friends, so we did not select this restaurant ourselves. Our reservation was for 6:30 this past Saturday night...early for us, but the only time that was available. I had extremely low expectations after reading these reviews. Were we very pleasantly surprised! Service, from the hostess who received us (no wait), to the person who took us to our table was professional, especially considering how young (and probably inexperienced) these people were. Our waitress probably could have been a bit more informed on the details of the dishes, but was attentive without being obtrusive. From the Sancerre wine to a crusty whole wheat bread, appetizer of snap peas with a pesto sauce and ricotta salata (divine), to the perfectly cooked halibut over corn with roasted mushrooms, sides of spinach and broccoli rabe, to the plum tart for dessert and the perfect cup of coffee, the food was flavorful and delicious. Other items ordered and enjoyed by our party included a grey goose martini, mussels, a pasta nicoise, the Eggs Lafayette appetizer, a roasted mushroom appetizer and steak frites. The interiors are gorgeous, and definitely reminiscent of a French Bistro, albeit much larger. The architectural details were wonderful. There was a buzz which made the atmosphere fun, but we could easily hear what our party members were saying, something rare in restaurants today. We all agreed that we are eager to return to this great new restaurant. Hope it can keep up its quality!

    All show no go!

    Had a 10::00 res.on a Friday nite-told us to wait at bar for 40 min. Finally seated and had over salted food and just bad attitude all around. They have a lot of work to do to get there act together. The worst attitude was from the sommelier who truly looked like he didn't want to deal with another person. As much as we likeThe Dutch we truly had a terrible evening and will never return.

    meh -

    Andrew Carmellini is a great chef. But Lafayette stinks. Literally - it still smells like fresh paint. Breakfast was lousy - my frittata was so dry and salty I needed three full waters. My partner's vol-au-vent arrived with the pastry soggy and the eggs grainy, salty and cool. Blech. Lunch was better - the chicken salad was a deconstructed masterpiece - I wish I'd ordered it instead of the mediocre, uninspired nicoise salad. And honestly, $5 for a Diet Coke? That would NEVER happen in Paris. There is upscale casual dining, then there is just obnoxious. Also - I'm calling it out. The Emperor's new clothes are hideous. The design is overdone, kitschy silliness. Those lights!?!? That graffiti?!?! Sigh. I trust Lafayette will improve with age. Carmellini is too great a chef for this. When he tweaks the problem dishes and the paint dries it will doubtless become a beloved destination. I'll wait.
