I visited my sister who is a student at Barnard this summer. I am an extreme version of a foodie and it seemed that all week when we went to usually wonderful restaurants my food ended up being less than wonderful. However, the moring I was to leave we decided to eat breakfast close to home. I decided to get the Eggs Benedict, despite the fact I'm not a fan of runny yolks, but these were perfect! It had great flavor. Also, for the first time in NYC our water glasses were always full! I would tell anyone looking to eat in Morningside this is definitely a place to stop by.

We go there a lot with my daughter, a Columbia student. We love it and it is a great place to relax and have a very casual dinner with good food. Best in the college area.

The hostess sat us at a cramped table next the sidewalk. There were passersby clicking cigarette ash on us. Later, we asked our server for an extra slice of bread to accompany the escargot but that never arrived. The pate was bland, the mesculin limp, and the tomatoes mealy. This is an outfit that takes itself way too seriously for the cuisine it sets out. Way too many great dining establishments to spend your money here.

Great food. Strong point is the unusual authentic french bistro fare. They could push that niche a bit farther, though. Try the Soupe de poisson a l'ancienne. Really good. The Steak d'Angeau is so good it should be a regular item every day, not just Monday. There should be more specials such as you would only find in a bistro in Paris like harreng et pommes a l'huile or sweet breads, tripe or ox tail stew. Give the college students an education, I say. The owners should be exempted from all taxes for life and declared heros if only they would offer delivery.

I frequent le monde for the vibe, the burgers and Chimay Reserve. Ambient lighting and beautiful flora coupled with a European bistro decor create a comfortably romantic atmosphere. The service is feast or famine. The eggs benedict are wonderful as are the crepes, even if you don't order them, the wafting aroma of them baking is sublime.

I went here tonight on I guess what was a sort of first date, and it couldn't have been a better choice for that. There were lots of couples, mood lighting which created a somewhat romantic environment (and yet the place is still pretty casual), and maybe because the service was a little slow, my date and I actually got to sit and relax and talk. We ordered the steamed mussels, normally a main course, as an appetizer which came with a side of fries. Overall the mussels were good but a few were a little gritty...dip the bread in the broth at the end...delicious. We both had salads, mine the one with the shrimp and taboule. The grilled shrimp on top were excellent (I guess I'm happy my date turned down my offer to try one) but the greens were watercress and somewhat hard to eat. We finished with cappucinos. The waiter seemed to have forgotten about us for a little bit, but there were some attentive busboys who even came to clear our plates of empty mussel shells while we continued to enjoy our appetizer. There are few places in the Columbia area that allow you to sit and enjoy, and the overall experience was a good one. Though it's not the cheapest place in the area, it's definitely worth going with someone you like.
