    Unpleasant

    The onion soup was good, but that was it. The chicken sandwich wasn't even up to deli quality. The waitress tried her best, but it took a long time for the soup to come (15 min.) and the meal was another 15 minutes after that. I couldn't wait to get out of there - all of us agreed to pass on dessert and coffee. I will not go there again.

    Not recommended

    Went there on 12/26 for my husband's birthday; it's one of our go-to places that we love. Everything was great, until I paid the bill. I decided to pay the bill with my card, and leave the tip in cash. Within a few minutes of paying, someone who I can only assume was the manager came over to ask how everything was, then wanted to know why we weren't leaving a tip. We were embarrassed and extremely offended. It didn't help that he did this loud enough to attract the attention of the folks at the next table. My husband curtly but politely advised that a tip would be left in cash before we left (something we weren't doing just at that moment, as we were still finishing our wine). He mumbled a quick 'sorry' and tossed in something about hoping he didn't offend us before rushing off. Was he kidding?! I've never been treated in such a way at a restaurant in my life. We quickly left within a few minutes of this exchange, and we are never going back. uch a shame; it was one of our favorite places, and we've only ever had good experiences there previously. I guess if you're looking for great food with a side of possibly being publicly embarrassed for no reason, give Les Halles a try!

    Disappointing

    The lack of air conditioning on a 90 degree day is unacceptable! expected so much more from Bourdain, food average, feel bad for the staff who have to work under these conditions!

    Love this place.

    I will say, its a bit dark, that makes for a great date atmosphere. BUT, the music is usually too loud, and the tables are a bit too close together to really feel private. The food though, is excellent. I've been there several times and never had a bad meal or one even close to it. The fries are amazing. Foie Gras? Best I've ever had. The lamb is so good, not even close to being dry, and lamb is a tricky meat to cook. I will say, the desserts are sub par, the chocolate mousse is the only thing worth having. As for the service, its really hit or miss. True, the waiters can be a little pompous, but the bus boys are always a great help, so please, slip them a few bucks, they deserve it! Overall, its a great place if you're craving some steak, or really any kind of meat. I really recommend it.

    Only order an Entree or just throw your cash away

    OK, my wife wanted Les Halles for her birthday, so off we went. We ordered appetizers, which arrived almost instantaneously, which led me to believe they were premade. The honey/brie/croutons (at almost ten bucks) disappointed as the honey overwhelmed the palate and nothing else could be fully tasted. The dessert, a crepes les halles, failed to impress with a fairly flavorless cream. However, the entrees, a steak for her and a beef dish for me, were savory, full flavored and hearty. The meat exceeded our expectations, and my wife said it was better than powerhouse Peter Luger. I advise you to ONLY try an entree and save the cash. The service was average and the decor was less than atmospheric: cracked ceiling pain, two large mirrors, one cracked, at the rear, dark, dreary tones, but it really is all about the food anyway.

    Good

    Worth going for steak frites or prime rib for two. The meat was cooked well and the prices were very fair all things considered. Skip the appetizers which were obviously premade (except the tartare which is made tableside) and came out way too fast leaving us a half hour between courses. The waiters are absentee but the busboys are amazing and that is actually more important in some ways. Water was never empty, dishes cleared promptly. Host and hostess both very pleasant, and the chef (Bourdain's little buddy) did stop by our table. Overall just fine though the space is a bit run down.

    No! No! No! Do NOT Go!

    Food was very disappointing. I ordered basic roast chicken.... Okay... so you think the chef can't screw that up. Well, was I wrong! Chicken was dry to the bone and tasteless. I literally had to choke this down with a large glass of water. I've had better rotisserie chicken from my local grocery store. Pommes frites (they think that simply labeling these frozen fries as french allows them to get away with serving this inferior crap). My friend ordered hanger steak, which is ordinarily full of flavor. However, this was more like chewing on bland shoe leather. As if to add insult to injury.... the waiter brought the dessert menu. Okay, so you think I would decline, but my friend wanted to end this disaster with something chocolate. Molton chocolate cake tasted like a poor excuse for duncan hines that had been sitting around for a week. Stale, uninspiring and completely the wrong way to end a meal. Then the check came.... oh boy, pricey for the quality of food. This place is, at best, one notch above fast food.
