Absolutely worth the wait!!! Because you Will be waiting. The waiters are a bit crazed but that's because it's usually one girl for the whole place. I've been going forever and everything I try is great. BYO I'm sure helps with that too :-)

This is a truly great West Village restaurant. It's cozy and bustling, but feels very festive. The food is great and reasonably priced. I love that it's BYOB. Totally worth the wait!

You will always see a well-dressed, but casual crowd waiting outside of this gem. On the perfect tree lined block with the unbeatable BYOB perk....patrons wait outside thankful that the servers open wine for the wait. There is something tastey for everyone on the pleasantly French menu and at a fair price. Sitting outside on a nice day is heaven....

Tartine is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. While you wait for your table, have a glass of wine and chat with friends on the sidewalk outside. The food is fantastic and the price is very right! My friend's and I come here all the time. Highly recommended.

This quaint, tree-lined Village street corner surprisingly had some of the nicest staff I've ever met. Recently coming back from a Saturday afternoon jog for which we had brought only $20 and a credit card, my boyfriend and I were famished and stopped at Tartine. After sitting down at the table and getting bread and water, we discovered that it was cash-only. We asked one of the staff if he knew of a grocery store nearby where we could get cashback. He didn't, but without even flinching reached into his pocket, handed us $40, and asked us to stay. He did not ask for any collateral, name, or phone number. He was totally confident that we were trustworthy without knowing anything about us. He even told us he was off the next day and we could just come by any time the next week -- no rush. This was the kindest gesture from a total stranger I've ever experienced in New York. We quickly returned later that evening with the money and a bottle of wine for him. Thank you!

I am French and the food there is simply not so good. It's like the french equivalent of poor american diner food: subpar french bistro food. Stale bread. Sad looking salad. Too much sauce. Too much salt. Too much cream and a blend blend taste. It's great for the location and the decor did remind me of small bistros in coast towns in France.

My gf. and I met another couple for dinner. We got there before 7 p.m. so we were seated immediately. I ordered the spicy chicken -- very tasty. My gf had the lamb special. Also, very good. I think the price is a little bit high (it was $18 for the chicken and $20 for the lamb) considering the cramped quarters but you're saving the huge markup on the wine (it's BYOB) so it works out fine. There was a huge line when we left around 8:15. I guess it's worth waiting for 30-40 minutes but ONLY if you bring wine to drink in line. There's just so many great places in that neighborhood. Also, I was worried about poor service but our friends are regulars there so we were treated very nicely.
