The good and prices are commensurate with the neighborhood but the surliness of the counter staff is what really sets this place apart. Is it really such a burden to smile, be pleasant, and fill orders quickly and helpfully all while you are getting paid and expecting tips? Step it up, ladies. I believe you are nicer people than you let on.

....that they have shared tables at this joint. Think Benihana. You'll be sitting with numerous randoms which is fine assuming you're in the mood for this type of experience. Food is just so-so and the service is "meh".

I was here for lunch with a friend and I had to ask for cutlery, water, multiple times. The staff demonstrates consistent thoughtlessness as they slap down plates and attempt to take away plates even as one is resting between bites. For this they are entitled to a twenty percent tip? I will not be back. There's plenty of other mediocre food on the Upper West Side- may as well patronize a place that at least attempts something better.

Pricey but delicious baked goods.

I went to Le Pain Quotidien for lunch with my friend for the first time and I loved it. I had the turkey tartine, which was fabulous, and my friend had the tabouli salad. The food was full of fresh herbs and flavor. The only thing I didn't like was our waitress. The staff seemed to be a bit cold and unfriendly. Otherwise the atmosphere was very old world european and the desserts are delish! I would definitely recommend le pain quotidien.

I love Le Pain Quotidien! Whenever I can't decide what I'm craving, I can always find satisfaction here. My favorite time to go is around 4pm for a latte and a sweet, but it is great for breakfast too. Their granola is fabulous, as are the salmon tartine, the vegetarian salad, and the tuscan platter. If you think you can handle it, the mini rasberry tarts are amazing, but you may find yourself craving one every day...so watch out. Every location is decent, but I'm a regular at the one on Lex near 64th. They don't quite know my name, but they definitely know my face.
