Less than grand. If you are on your eighth cocktail and happen to be seeking a spot to try and pick up the last remnants of the opposite sex at 4am this is a great place to hit up. The menu has some obscure selections for a 24/7 spot (i.e tripe), but the burger and croissant sandwich will successfully put the close on a torrent night of alcohol. My suggestion is to grab a booth table, and keep drinking, until all the food and spotty service all blend together.....

I've never had a bad meal at L'Express. Actually, I really like the food and the wine. I also have only experienced excellent service at this restaurant. The waiters, I find, are very attentive and friendly.

Food is fine but not notable with the exception of a lovely wild mushroom ravioli. The service leaves much to be desired and if you want to share conversation with a companion forget it unless you go at 2:00 in the morning. The noise level is critically painful. On one ocassion my guest demanded we leave before the food arrived both because of the noise and the 40 minutes we had been waiting with no food yet in sight.

L'Express is my standard retreat after a night on the town. Great place to drink some wine (last call 4 am sharp!) and eat one of their delicious and huge omlets with some fries. Excellent menu, fast service, unhurried pace.

Lunch at the bar is perfect as most patrons want to sit at a table. The wine is excellent and I recommend the blood sausage! Share the charcuterie plate with a pal. The sandwiches are great! And do not forget to order cafe au lait. It comes in a small tureen, and finishes the lunch meal, parfait!

Been going here for years, only for the ease factor - but we can no longer ignore the poor service (orders are either incorrectly prepared, delivered or a combination of both 75% of the time - this is actual). The food is just ok, the fries are always cold and greasy. They really need to restructure or go away to make way for something good.

I've been to L'Express several times, but this time, I've had it with the service. In the past, I overlooked the SLOW service. Today, after having called our waitress over to our table, she was obnoxious to me in front of my business contacts. I asked for a description of a breakfast dish (egg florentine or some fancy name), and the waitress said, "You don't know what egg florentine is? You mean you don't know?" No, I didn't learn about florentine in school; I'm not a cook. My guests said she was rude. Granted, this is New York, but a waitress should serve a purpose other than embarrassing and offending others.
