    last time

    We reserved for Thurs. evening. Table was wobbly chairs were wobbly. Tables were placed so tightly together that we could also hear our neighbors' complaints. Veal chop portions were small, the vegetables served with it were not only overcooked, but scraps from the bottom of the pot. Service was non-existent, and the noise was so loud that conversation was impossible. After several visits, each progressively worse, we will not go again.

    Very nice steakhouse

    I've eaten here a handful of times and always enjoyed it. Steaks are cooked to perfection (I like mine exceedingly rare, and the chefs here aren't afraid to let it bleed) and the french fries are crispy and delicious. They have a nice cocktail menu, attentive and pleasant service, and it's usually never so crowded that you have to wait for a table. Also, it's Kosher, so a good place to bring friends who are Jewish and observant. It's pricy, but worth it to treat yourself every now and then

    If you don't like steak - skip this one!

    The roasted chicken was just mediocre - not worth the price. The other people in our party got steak and were pretty happy with it although the portions were pretty small. My favorite part of the meal was the salad.

    Authentic French Cuisine in NYC !

    Sorry, I found this restaurant at the end of December rather by chance because I was attracted from the Time Square area by the neon light coming from the Cuban restaurant at the other side of the street. The classic styled display-counter filled up with fresh meat seen through the window seduced me to go inside this "brown" and cosy restaurant. The "Steak aux poivres" was really wonderful, even better than my expectation, and the french (Belgian!) fries were just perfect. Somewhat later, at the table next to me, somebody was eating lamb : two huge bones from the underpart of the leg, matched together in a big bowl with brown onion-sauce (1-person-portion!), were laughing to me... Can you imagine : being two weeks only in a city with 25.000 eateries AND going on two successive days to the same restaurant !? I did it, ... and I am not ashamed. I was on my own, thus very concentrated on the food and the delicious Merlot housewine that I drunk with it. The service was very correct and I enjoyed highly the familiar ambiance of the house.

    Drifting downhill

    Le Marais gets worse and worse each time I go; my most recent visit was probably the last. The service at Le Marais is the problem -- the food is fine. Last time, 6 of the 7 in our party were served, and the 7th waited another ten minutes (though we asked two waiters, the hostess, and the maitre d'hotel in the meantime). The first explanation given was that they needed to wait for fresh french fires, and the second explanation was "Hey, it's a mistake" with a shrug. After that, a busboy put other people's dirty plates on our table so he could collect some of ours. One of our party ordered tea, and got something floating in the water. Kosher or not, it was an unacceptable experience, doubly so in a town in which kosher is not a problem.

    seen better days

    I haven't been here in over a year, but I always used to love the steak and fries. I heard rumblings that Le Marais had since "lost its touch" but I wanted to find out first hand. Unfortunately, the rumblings were not entirely untrue. My experience got off to the wrong foot when I had to wait 15 minutes to get a seat even though I had a reservation. In general, the service was pretty good, but we had to wait for a while to flag down the staff to bring us more bread and one of us sent his steak back becasue he felt it wasn't cooked enough, and they apparently forgot about it. As for my meal, I ordered good ol' faithful 16 ounce ribeye cooked medium with fries. Maybe I'm spoiled from going to Prime Grill and solo, but this steak was not as I remembered it. Although it was cooked properly and tasted ok. It just seemed to lack something in flavor and texture that separates a good steak from an excellent one. Also, the fries were not as crispy as the should have been. To its credit, Le Marais is not as expensive as its peers, and the prices have not risen dramatically over the past few years. For a solid steak, it's not a bad bet and will cost you less than other places.

    never again

    I had an unpleasant experience at Le Marais but decided to give it another try. Never again. Such poor services for mediocre food. The typical kosher restaurant attitude of "just be happy you have a place for kosher food and take whatever we give you".
