The French Coast

Excellent French fare on the Upper West Side. Had diner there and everything from the seared scallops, duck confit salad and Moroccan Couscous Royal was to perfection. Service was attentive, terrace lovely and crowd pleasant. We lingered there for a couple of hours without being rushed. Will definitely be back.

The food's not bad and when first opened this was a reasonable neighborhood place, but prices have been raised so it is no longer good value and the more reasonable Happy Hour menu has been deleted--although it still appears here. The very nice servers of the opening period have been replaced with some more snippy ones.

Brunch at the French Coast has become a ritual for us. Unlike the usual soggy eggs benedict served ad hoc at every restaurant in town, the French Coast serves perfect crêpes, salads, and croques. Like any good French restaurant worth its weight in sel de mer, there is fine espresso, as well as a lovely selection of wines. The dinner is also delicious.I've had beautiful tuna tartare and succulent, buttery salmon. The dining room itself is certainly more intimate than booming, and the portions could be larger, but the size of the space and the dishes remind me of a cozy brasserie in Provence. Absolutely delightful and thoroughly French.

Not sure how this place stays open, it is never busy and the food is so lackluster and not good. Interior is cramped. Would be better off as a cafe or wine bar.

I thought I'd try this place, to have a french meal on the UWS. The decor is nothing special--generic and uninventive, and probably I should have been warded off by the fact that I rarely see people in here for dinner. But our experience was truly poor. The food was insipid, tasteless. The shrimp was old. The duck "confit" salad was just hunks of breast in some old lettuce dressed in an unappetizing dressing. The pate was fine but nothing special. The lamb burger may have been alright but arrived so much later than the rest of our food that we didn't bother. By that time, we'd been turned off by the truly appalling service. Our waitress literally would not talk to us. I don't now how this place survives amidst so many great restaurants in the neighborhood. Hopefully it will be gone soon to make room for something else.
