    It's on its way

    Still new, Lafayette shows signs of being a real treasure. It's handsome,the service is excellent, but the food at this point varies from very good to not-so-great: oddly enough, the two misses were both pastas. At lunch, the salade nicoise was fresh and abundant; at dinner an appetizer of pea pods in pesto was lovely, as was a roast chicken for two. The noise level is high, alas, but that's how it is these days. Definitely the place to go before the Public Theater.

    Food's not great, Service is FANTASTIC

    I had steak tartare and I cannot remember having had such a subpar experience. The pasta was surprisingly good in comparison. Also their pastries were all burned. The location is great, the space is super nice, service fantastic, however their menu is mediocre, and I was not impressed with the food. The bread is good though. Ha!

    happily surprised

    After reading those reviews, well after making my reservation, I was set for a poor meal. It was wonderful. The duck pate was tasty and presented beautifully. The waiter service was excellent and attentive and the fish my partner ordered was the best he ever had. My steak and french fries were great. I gave my partner his birthday present and soon there were tarts, cake and ice cream delivered with a lovely candle to celebrate his birthday without me asking. Wonderful! We will be going back, and back.

    Mediocre, at best

    I'm a huge fan of Carmellini... Love the Dutch and Laconda. So I was very excited to try Lafayette for dinner. We ate there last Friday night. The good: beautiful restaurant with a well dressed crowd. Fantastic cocktails. Very good service. The bad: the food was basically mediocre, at best. We ordered half the dishes on the menu and nothing was even remotely good. In a French brasserie, at least the French fries should be good. But even those were sub par. I may go back and give it another try in six months. Really, the food was that mediocre.

    Ok, not great

    The resturant is gorgeous. I liked the fact that tables were not on top of eachother like in every other French restaurant. The steak tartar was good, but nothing stellar. The rotisserie chicken had no flavor, there was no jus. needed something.

    Big disappointment

    Had lunch there today and the restaurant is beautiful. If only the food matched the setting. Lunch was a simple goat cheese and grilled veggies sandwich. Skimpy, skimpy vegetables, hardly and goat cheese and very ordinary bread. The salad that accompanied the sandwich was so salty,it was inedible. Nobody at my table was happy with the food. It's such a pleasant place to eat, but they've got to improve the food. It's not that hard to make an interesting sandwich however, I got the feeling they didn't really care.

    Overrated Brasserie

    Went for lunch @ 3:00 today, when it was relatively quiet. Big attractive space, resembling a Parisian bistro. Patisserie in the front, with stools, look welcoming and inviting. People sitting there eating pastries and sipping drinks and espressos. Both my friend and I had Frisée salads in dining room. They were skimpy on the bacon and disappointing. Their Frisée salad can't hold a candle to the one served elsewhere. Looks like a potential scene to be "seen" and if food is secondary, then it'll be busy. If you want excellent food, then be prepared to pay for mediocrity, and it doesn't come cheaply. This was my first and my last visit.
