    Deliciously French

    I came here for a weekday lunch back in May. I had the nicoise, my friend the mussels. We shared an appetizer of smoked herring (it was not "scary" at all surprisingly tasty). This place is known for its fries, amd hey were piping hot, golden brown, perfectly cooked, not oily and simply delicious... as was every single item we had. The quality of the ingredients really shines. The mussels were large and full, the tuna perfectly cooked, the salad lightly coated with refreshing dressing. Even the tableside butter was irresistable. It may not be as good as the fresh butter I had in the Norman countryside, but by far the best here in the States. I went back subsequently and had the steak frites with banana flambe for dessert. Absolutely delicious. Agree that the pace of the restaurant can be hectic and the servers a bit slow, but between the outstanding food and people watching the pickup scene, this place was very fun and well worth a return trip!

    if you are deaf and have no taste buds.

    if you are over 30, this is not the spot for you. dining here is akin to dining with Z2000 turned up to huge volumes. the servers could care less, the food is less than mediocre, it's just a pick up joint. if you care about what you eat, stay away! a complete disaster.

    At least have good service OR good food.

    We went to Les Halles with great expectations and perhaps that is why we were so disappointed. We went for lunch on the weekend, around 1:30. The room is pretty, not too fancy, but comfortable and spacious. We were shown to a cozy corner booth and thought, "this is starting out well" then it ended. No one came to our table for at least 5 minutes, and the place was not that busy (maybe half full). Finally a bus boy brought us some bread. Five more minutes later a haggard university student swept over sighing that he was "so busy" Not from where we sat. We ordered. We started with the pate and then I had the Nicoise and Steph had the Merguez. I also had a glass of Sanserre (okay 2 by the end of lunch). Our pate was brought and we still did not have the water we asked for. Everyone else had water, we felt a bit left out. We were able to flag our waiter who seemed to be running around doing alot of nothing and asked again for some water. He was as annoyed as we were that none was on the table and remedied the matter. The Pate was fine. The mains came and the Merguez was incredibly spicy. I liked it, but don't think I could have had more than one or two bites. My Nicoise was not good. The lettuce was wilty, the tomatoes were as hard as rocks and there is no reason for that in early September, the dressing was drearily bland and there was far too much of it. In a word - ick. I very rarely leave food on my plate, but this salad was not worth the effort to eat. The wine was very good. It wasn't overpriced, but I would have paid a few more dollars for enjoyable food. Maybe we ordered the wrong things. Maybe they were understaffed for some reason. Maybe we should not bother to go again except for a glass of Sanserre. Thankfully, the company was excellent.

    not impressed

    very loud, too dark, tiny table. no bread plates and only a steak knife for the butter? obviously not a show stopper but kind of weird. it was hot inside as well. we didn't have the service problems others mentioned. food was plain, nothing special. hanger steak was very good on the meat platter, everything else was just so-so or worse. except the bacon, they couldn't screw that up. the one type of sausage tasted like a taco? weird... wild mushroom pasty appetizer was overpowered by onion flavor. i was told its my own fault for not ordering a steak. i disagree but.......whatever.

    Service in need of help

    Today we had breakfast at Les Halles on Park South in NY. I can say that it was one of the most try experiences since we've been going for 5+ years now. Our waiter was dismissive to my wife and our guests through out the ordering process. Including walking away without confirming our orders. This was further struck when he hurried to give us our check. Inclusive of this, there was leftover materials in the milk, which make us question the cleanliness of the restaurant. I would like to continue to coming to Les Halles, but this past experience has left us both question it. Although I did leave a decent tip, which was meant for the table staff (who did well) I would have had no reservations in not doing so.

    let's work on the service here

    I really like the food here. I go with the chicken sandwich, which is not too exciting of me, but I like it a lot. Food is good and filling. The problem: the service, or lack thereof. It's inconsistent at best and M.I.A. at worst. It seems like they need more — and more pleasant — servers to an atmosphere worthy of the food.

    Dining Room Confidential

    Ouch! This is a noisy, mediocre restaurant without any sign of decent service. Nice and busy - some lucky absentee owner is making a pile of dough.
