I was in New York City. over Christmas visiting family and for Christmas Eve dinner my cousin insisted that we go to Le Perigord. I was very hesitant because I am not very familiar with French food and the few experiences I had with it were not exemplary to say the least. However upon arriving at the restaurant I was charmed by the service and our waitress was the perfect mix of helpful and friendly but not overbearing. I decided to on roasted lamb as my entree and was thrilled with it’s juiciness as most lamb I’ve had was rather dry. Le Perigord completely changed my opinion on French food and I look forward to trying it again on another trip to NYC.

Superb wine list and expertly prepared cuisine. The service and staff is first class. I was recently introduced to this 50 year old restaurant. I wish I spoke French.

For Valentine's Day and a Birthday celebration we chose Le Perigord. It was a busy place yet we had comfortable Dinner. The escargot to start with was perfectly prepared. Sliced loin of lamb a winner. The many choices of desserts were masterfully served by the Captain with a tenor voice, outgoing personality and nice smile. It was great to sing Happy Birthday mom. Thank you Le Perigord

Since we live in the neighborhood we've had many excellent lunches at Le Perigord. But we made the mistake of going during Restaurant Week . What a mistake it was ! The place was full but still the same number of waiters, evidently overworked, which made the service sort of hectic. Instead of their wonderful baguette (which we asked for) we got one slice of stale brioche, and the water was never refilled. The food was not bad, though portions were smaller and choice was limited, but the whole experience was disappointing. If you are going to participate in Restaurant Week do it right if you want to attract clientele. Frankly, I'd rather pay a few dollars more and have a good lunch.

The restaurant week food was very good but there is one thing that bothers me. The menu they give you is not exactly the same as the one they published. They changed from Lamb to something else I didn't want. They did the same during the winter restaurant week. Since the menu is limited it should be the one they published just a few weeks earlier. Having said that, I enjoyed the meal - pate, bay scallops and a fantastic fruit napoleon.

It must be bewildering for readers to see such contrasting opinions of Le Perigord. You may be wondering: who's opinion should I believe? While I can't guarantee that you will become a confirmed devotee, I can offer some clarification. If you are an adult looking for a civilized no nonsense formal dining experience; if you want a plate full of what looks like food and not an abstract modern art painting; if you believe that there are certain things which never go out of style; then this is the place for you. I have eaten at many of the most highly regarded restaurants in New York City. One of the most satisfying meals I ever ate in my life was at Le Perigord. I hope to God they never change.

This restaurant is a tremendous disappointment - high prices and flavorless food. It's not clear how anyone can make venison totally flavorless - the chicken maybe -but lamb??? The only part of this experience that was acceptable was the wine and the oysters.
