    Keeper

    After 2 years marketing in NYC this is one of the jewels we return to whenever we get back up to the big apple. My favorite is the Bouillabaisse, but its all great mussels, calamari, baby octopus... As far as atmosphere its just like a small cafe┬┤very busy, crowded and can be a little noisy, but a welcome port. The service has a little attitude, I prefer to call it personality. The price is reasonable concidering the quality of the food. Rick

    Drink prices OUTRAGEOUS!

    We've eaten here several times & had a wonderful meal. My husband ordered a Manhattan & was charged $14 for the drink & $2 for the ice it was poured over. Really?

    what's the rush?

    While the food is terrific, the service is unprofessional at best. The servers kept coming to the table to ask if we enjoyed our meal, to ask if we wanted more wine, despite the fact that our glasses were half-full & the second I put my fork down, they swept in & took away our plates. It made for a less-than-relaxing evening.

    Wonderful Find

    We had a terrific dinner here; started with Provencal fish soup which was excellent, finished with lapin & scallops, both of which were so good. Can't wait to return. It felt like a Parisian bistro.

    I'm literally eating Cheerios after eating here

    We just spent $70 on a so called Filet Mignon and what tasted like old frozen salmon. Neither of us ate more than 3 bites. When the waitress asked me if I didn't like it, I said no, it was pretty unappetizing, she just looked at me and then gave me the check - there was no "can I get you something else?" I can't believe what we just experienced. Gordan Ramsey would have shut this place down. I think the filet had some sort of meat glue in it, which for a $38 piece of meat is unacceptable and borderline insulting to the customer. The salmon had a texture unlike any piece of fish my wife has ever had and was completely bland. The vegetables underneath it weren't fresh either. We basically spent $70 for decent french fries. We have no idea why this place was so busy. I've ordered A LOT of filets in this town and this tasted like a fast food chain version. There are many MANY other better french bistros. Don't waste your time here unless you don't know the difference.

    Not recommended

    It used to be my favorite restaurant until yesterday when at the end of a lovely lunch just as we ordered dessert, the kitchen staff started washing the floors with bleach. The wait stuff did not tell them to stop even though the smell of overpowering. We had to tell them to stop. They moved to the back of the restaurant and continued with the bleach. The male waiter had a blank expression on his face when I tried to talk to him how inappropriate it was to pour bleach on the floor when people are eating. He was silent. I am very disappointed and will not go back.

    C'est presque la rive gauche!

    I love this restaurant. Above all the ambiance. Also the escargots, lapin a la moutarde, salade d'endive and soupe aux poissons. Thank you Lucien for an always enjoyable meal!
