This is a charming french bistro. We were frequent diners there, and have always enjoyed their food and ambiance. But on a recent visit there, we were unpleasantly surprised as to how much the place has changed for the worse. The food was barely passable, and the service totally uncoordinated and unprofessional. To those who say "well, this is how it is in Europe", I will say, well no, this is NOT how it is in Europe. This is just poor management. It is sad and unfortunate, because we really used to like this place.

Almost every time we go to NYC many times a year we manage to stop into Mon Petite Cafe for either Breakfast, Lunch or dinner. We have aalways enjoyed our meals,service and Atmosphere. A great casual find for us from Philadelphia .

I've eaten here a few times and found it really lovely. The one complaint I've ever had is that the fish once came to the table cold. Someone else at my table had ordered steak, so it was just poor kitchen timing. Other than that, it's been a perfectly wonderful dining experience. I recommend the foie gras and the onglet. If you get lucky one night you'll go when they have the couscous royal. Merveilleux! Every dish I've tried has been very good, the portions are more than ample, and the wine list is very nice. The service is always very friendly, if not the most attentive. What's with all these people complaining about waiting for a check? Have you ever been to Europe? You don't get the check until you ask for it - anything else would be rude.

The atmosphere at the small bistro was very nice, after that everything went downhill. The food was absolutely subpar. I agree with another one of the reviews that there is nothing French about this place. The food was bland and the quality was poor. I had beef bourguignon which is a very traditional French dish, somehow they managed to ruin it.

For the past five years my wife and I have visited NYC every week from the burbs. We like to try differ places to eat in before our drive home. Five out of the last 12 weeks we have found ourselves back at Mon Petit Cafe. There is something about the place that has struck a very positive cord for us. Perhaps it is the combination of good food, attentive service, pleasant atmosphere and a reasonable good value.

What a wonderful, dear place with the most authentic, superb French cuisine---better than Paris! I mean that: on a recent trip to France, we found ourselves longing for Mon Petit Cafe in the heart of New York City.I could happily move into Mon Petit Cafe and my husband would gratefully follow. The lamb chops are extrordinary, the mussels are to die from, the onion soup is stellar---------you can't make a mistake no matter what you order. And the service---oooh la la. There's a dall, dark, lovely gentleman whose name escapes me but whatever you want---he'll get for you! All the waiters are gentle and patient and knowledgeable and mostly, very French. In a city neighborhood teeming with Bloomingdales, Trump Towers, Home Depot and a million fancy restaurants---this one is welcom ing, delicious and very fairly priced. Love you, Mon Petit!

I have dined in Mon Petit Cafe several times and never been disappointed. The staff is always very attentive and charming. The food is delicious especially the Steak Au Poivre, my husband always orders it. The salad dressing is phenomenal as well and the endive salad is one of my favorites. Sometimes if I go in at lunch I have just that and a salad.
