I've only added this review because this restaurant baffles me. I have never really had a good meal here, though I've tried the restaurant several times. The food is not memorable, sometimes acceptable and sometimes overcooked. The standard vegetable is a very un-French creamed spinach. My friend has had better experiences, particularly the first lunch we had there, where his skate was excellent. At my last meal I asked the matre d' if the chicken was free range. She seemed unfamiliar with the term and said that chicken was just a regular chicken. The service is a bit sloppy. One waiter does seem quite ancient. The restaurant does give the vague impression of catering to a kind of person that neither I nor my friend are, though it was never actually hostile. I simply felt as if we treated as if we did not quite belong there, which is odd for me since I have dined at similar establishments here in the city since I was a child. I do get the feeling that some people are preferred over others. As far as the old world experience, being addressed in French at a French restaurant is neither new nor news. The decor has been updated and the atmosphere is charming. But, after 3 outings, I don't think I will be back. And this is a shame, since I think this could be a fine place to dine.

Not a nice place. Go elsewhere if you want a good evening out.

Le Veau d'Or continues to live in that rarified space of classic old-timer and wonderful value. Step back in time to a place where a saucier interprets the classic sauces, as if Escoffier were in the kitchen himself , and you imagine yourself in Reims or Paris at a Michelin 3-star

I won't try to impress upon you folks with how good this place is.. other folks are already over-reserving the restaurant, clients and reviewers alike. but nice to find a NY treasure. you won't find them on opentable. they don't need to be there. even per se is on open table. need I say more?

One of the best meals of our lives. Classic bistro French, no gimmicks. It was so good I ordered a second main course and two deserts.

I did not know what to expect but was so pleasantly surprised by this quaint, quiet, superb little bit of the old world. We are just plain, tourist from the mid-west but we were made to feel right at home. Every thing we ordered was delicious. We were not rushed and enjoyed the friendly chat offered by the daughter and owner of this lovely jewel. The evening dinner preset had many options...something for everyone. We were delighted after our wonderful meal with a complementary chocolate mousse from the owner. Three courses plus an additional gift! Just wonderful!

Great little french restaurant with a $20 lunch prefix which includes app, entree and dessert. Owned by an old french guy and his daughter, this restaurant has charm and a true french atmosphere. I feel like i walk into a little place in paris everytime i walk in. The side booths are perfect for both business or casual lunches. I often take people here so tht they can pik whatever they want and feel more comfortable. I highly recommend the Vichyssoise (cold potatoe soup)
