    Great as usual

    Started off Restaurant Week with lunch here. As usual a delight. Although their regular Prix Fix lunch is great also. This is one of the few real french restaurants left in New York. I can even get my favorite: veal kidneys with mustard sauce!

    The Best Lobster Bisque in Town and Roasted Duck

    A civilized and lovely Restaurant , Le Perigord is our favorite lunch spot. The Lobster Bisque and the Roasted Duck are superb , so are the the desserts selection to finish the meal . The lunch price fix is great value in Manhattan.

    All Around Disappointment

    When my husband said we were going to Le Perigord I thought, Ooooh La La ! The notion of classic charm and classic French food was dispelled that one time. We were seated in a partially filled dining room yet both the waiters and pace were glacial. We were presented with the menu to review yet later after listening to an adjoining table did we discover that we were not given the special anniversary menu to review. The lamb I ordered was not seasoned at all and for "au jus" was given a cumin scented sauce. It was served with mandolined slivers of carrots and miniscule artichokes that came straight out of a jar. The lobster thermidor was overly creamy and underseasoned with nary a splash of cognac or sherry as is the recipe. Listening to a French couple at the next table, I heard them return a bottle of wine as unsatisfactory. A cappuccino ordered at the conclusion came in a demitasse and was totally bitter. I could go on with more, but I will refrain.

    Wonderful Surprise!

    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.

    Destination for the (sophisticated) Francophile

    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.

    Best value

    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

    Disappointing lunch

    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.
