Excellent lunch yesterday. We both had filet of sole almondine and it was perfect and buttery. Artichoke first is terrific, too. A first rate chocolate mousse for dessert, not too sweet. The present chef understands French classics and makes them well. A great value as well with charming owner welcoming you.

I have been going to this wonderful restaurant since 1982 and have always had an outstanding meal and incredible experience ! It is a timeless place and so wonderfully French! Loved it when Robert was there and enjoy it just as much with his daughter Kathy! Robert won the James Beard award, deservedly so. So happy to have discovered this gem!!

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.
