How's this for irony? It took a French restaurant to perfect the bacon cheeseburger. I love the taste of bacon, but no matter how much is used, it always defers to the flavors of the beef and cheddar cheese. Not at Soigne. They use a bacon-onion jam preparation which results in the bacon taste being in perfect proportion to the other flavors. Of course, everything they do is so good, it took me two years of frequenting this restaurant to work my way over to the hamburger. But I'm sure glad I did! I fell in love with Soigne the first time I went, and ordered to the charcuterie with a fois gras supplement. It arrived beautifully plated with more accompaniments than I could imagine; all of them delicious. The staff is always gracious and accommodating, no matter how much or how little we order. For some reason, my bouche has stopped being amused by the elegant cold soup they bring without charge, but this pleases everyone else in my party, who eagerly share mine. The greyere puffs served with the soup let you know that you're in for a rare treat.

And they do care. Went spontaneously on a night with "prix fixe" and it's a great value. They bring you a taste of yummy potato soup and cheese bread. Crab cakes were so delicious. The lightly seared scallops were too undercooked (which is OK for ceviche, but not cooked scallops). Try requesting high heat browned which is what brings out the flavor in scallops). But I still say food is really excellent, service great. I think the name is hard to pronounce which might discourage some...

I celebrated my 35th Birthday here tonight and I could not have had a better experience. The food was completely unbelievable. Every bite was better than the last. My friends and I ordered all of the small bites and most of the small plates and several of the sides. We received complimentary cheese puffs and cold potato soup. Btw the cold potato soup may have been the best thing I ever tasted. The wait staff was excellent as was the atmosphere. I could not have asked for a better night.

I came to this place by chance a couple of Saturdays ago with 3 other people. Place was packed and the only room for us was at the bar. At first we were reluctant to dine at the bar, but the bartender looked real cool, so we gave it a shot. Soon after we realized why this place was so busy. From the moment we sat, the bartender made sure we never wanted for anything. We started with a round of cocktails, the martinis were the best any of us had tasted in a long time. If you think martinis are a thing of the past in NYC, then you need to visit Johnny at Soigne. It is not a lost art at this place. Johnny helped with the menu choices, salads, crabcakes, and a lamb shortbread, outstanding. The duck and the lamb have to be the best in NYC. This place does belong in Manhattan, but we are glad its not. Then it may lose its style. From the moment we entered we were all treated as royalty. And as busy as the bar and restaurant were he handled it all, making it look like a walk in Prospect Park. What a character. We are so happy we found this place. Its a hidden gem in the Slope. Will return often. If you havn't tried Soigne, then you must. But leave room for the pumkin spice cheesecake, to die for. Treat yourself.

I had 16 family members in from out of town and I needed a place that would both accommodate a party of that size and show them some of the best food in NYC. I was also hoping for a place where my guests would be able to have conversations without shouting. I found all of the above at Soigne. Anthony, the chef, was attentive to every detail in planning the meal. My guests had a wonderful time. And the food was AMAZING. Every course, every detail, every bite. I wish I could rate this restaurant a 6 or a 7 for value - it was incredibly reasonably priced for the quality of the food. Soigne holds its own against the best meals I've had anywhere in NYC.

I live on quiet Sixth Ave, and while we've had some decent food for some time, Soigne takes things many notches up. Amazing quality, freshness, and inspired culinary creativity (but not in the scary/disappointing way like those places that proudly serve you a big plate with just a squiggle of weird foam on top of a tiny piece of toast). The decor at Soigne is fresh and soothing. Very pleasant servers. Fair prices for excellent and refined chow. The appetizers, small plates, and sides allow for a large range of meal sizes; one of us had just the salad and charcuterie, and was quite full; another had the foie gras and the burger and two glasses of old-growth Zinfandel, and was sated in the way one needs to be in late winter. I had the $30 market menu, a beautiful presentation of salad, transcendent risotto, and a marvelous Valhrona chocolate cake with a scoop of homemade chocolate chip ice cream and another scoop of lightly sweetened fresh whipped cream. All three of us loved everything we ordered. Wine list was great, too.

This is a terrific place. Creative and delicious menu, incredibly fresh food, great staff, lovely atmosphere...but it is in Brooklyn. If I lived in the neighborhood, I'd be there twice a week. Do leave room for dessert...the pumpkin creme brulee and homemade donut holes were both perfectly prepared and perfectly delicious!!
