We ate here on our honeymoon and being European, were expecting this place to be faux-France. We were delighted with Les Halles. The place is certainly noisy and crammed but the quality of the food is second to none, and the very very busy staff were politeness personified. I'd highly recommend this restaurant to anybody who wants excellent food at a truly reasonable price

I used to frequent les halles for the good food. Recently, I took a friend from out of town there and oh my god, it was terrible. The foie gras was 1/2 raw and tasteless. Everything we ordered was tasteless. Maybe the owner is spending too much time on his tv show. Time for him to get his kitchen in check again. Such a shame that what once served great food is serving such low quality food now.

Les Halles is famous because its head chef, Anthony Bourdain, wrote a hit book about the restaurant industry called Kitchen Confidential. The book, along with a quest for deliciousness, is what brought us to Les Halles. The food was indeed transcendent, with a good mix of French food from various regions and different lifestyles. The steak tartare was fantastic, as was the choucroute garnie. We were also thrilled with the potato-goat cheese salad and the grilled tuna. The down side is that the place is very, very busy. We were seated right near the door, next to the meat case, so that was not too impressive, and the waiters were frazzled. I would go back, but not for a date because it can get very loud and is not romantic in the slightest. The food is outstanding, though! Go with a small group of friends and be prepared to leave full.

Great Steak Tartare (sp?). I was too hung over to remember more. Service was good. I would return for the tartar.
