We had the steak w/bearnaise and the lamb chops, and they were both delicious. The atmosphere was nice, but the tables are just too close together for comfort. The only complaint would be our waiter who could not be bothered to check on drinks, etc. after the meal was delivered. Still, we really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.

We live 4 blocks away and went here for a simple steak-frites mid-week meal. Our steaks were tasty but not spectacular. The frites are really good however and overall the meal was good value for money. What let the place down was the boorish waiter who rattled through the list of the specials and insisted on getting my partner (male) to try to wine, despite the fact that I had ordered it (I'm female..) When I asked what the chefs cheese platter of the day consisted of he responded: "some soft cheese, some blue stuff and some goats cheese I think". Really poor.

After ten years of living in this city, I have had ample servings of subpar meals and poor service (thankfully, I've had even larger portions of great, memorable dining). This morning, my friend and I decided to head to Les Halles for brunch, which we'd passed by hundreds of times without ever stopping to eat there before. First, it took 25 minutes to recieve our coffee, and when the french press finally arrived, our busser spilled it all over the table. Then, our waiter (who seemed to have a hangover) forgot to put in our order, so by the time our meals arrived, we'd been sitting there for nearly an hour. The eggs were undercooked, the English muffins burnt, and the smoked salmon tasted like it'd been freezer burned. For $18+ a piece, not including our $8 coffees, we left disappointed.

First of all the let me say that Les Halles is worth it. Although Mr. Bourdain is not cooking the food he has a great chef in Gwenal La Pape to pick up where he left off. Great beers, fantastic steak and a jumping young scene is why this place is always busy. The expansion was a great move because it allows for some space and comfort. The apple tart is great for dessert and although the wait staff is fair at best I've been there 6 times this year. I would continue to go until I am given a reason not to.

Been there a few times this year already. The staff members are friendly & professional, food is GREAT, lots of people (which I like most of the time). A little noisy for a few of my friends who were expecting quiet & less casual evenings. But most of my friends enjoyed the experience. I recommend to try their "specials of the evening" dishes. The apple tart is delicious. We miss their previous bar tender though. (The present one is great too.)

Having read the books and found myself to be staying near Les Halles we made a reservation online from the UK (no problem) for 4 adults and eight children (10 to 19). We all found the experience delightful excellent food especially the steaks, a pleasantly busy but not particularly noisy atmosphere and very friendly service. When the kids say they enjoyed a restaurant it is praise indeed.

I went here to try the steak and found the atmosphere at Les Halles to be perfect, just what I was looking for, Upscale yet casual. The steak was delicious, however, I have had better, but not for the price. A definite must try, especially if you are in the area. I can't wait to go back.
