Mixed reviews and a the menu descriptions made me not that eager to try Tocqueville, chosen by someone else. Boy, was I wrong! The service was impeccable, and the food matched. The chef modified the appetizer to suit my desire, and the duck was a delicious cross between great Texas BBQ and a perfectly prepared French duck breast. (May not sound so great, but it was.) Very eager to return!

Do the tasting menu- every bite was perfect- one course better than the next. The only way to experience the pure culinary talent is to taste- the chef threw in an extra cheese course and treated us to little special bites between courses. After desert we were presented with a tray of house made chocolate. Wonderful! I don't eat meat or fowl- and they gladly reworked the menu to suit my taste. Every single thing was prepared exactly right- the service was attentive but relaxed- the room quiet....intimate but with plenty of room between tables for privacy. It is not a "hot spot" and has no scene- it is simply a showcase for amazing food....and that is why you should go. It is not cheap but it is worth it- I never mind paying for perfection

So refined. Easy on the eyes decor. A quiet, relaxed, restful atmosphere. Fine cuisine served by a solicitous staff. Considering its conservative nature, the restaurant is not stuffy and devoid of attitude. I would return with clients or to mark the right occasion.

Tocqueville was the perfect place for my birthday. Everything was wonderfully presented and the staff very gracious. We enjoyed the Greenmarket menu that features ingredients from the Union Square Market. The watermelon mojito was delicious and refreshing, a must have! I will return!

$95 was a fair value and the portions were of good size, one of our best Valentine’s Day dinner in the past decade. Overall, I highly recommend Tocqueville; it’s an elegant restaurant that offers sophisticated ambiance and delicious meal. Attentive service. A very good choice for special occasions and romantic nights out.

I went there on Sunday for an early Valentine's Day dinner. Their prix-fixe menu was $95 for 3 courses, and that's the only option they had, even though on the phone they told me the a la carte menu would be available as well. The food was pretty good, and the service was great - but not $95 good. $95 breaks down to something like $30 appetizer, $45 main course, and $20 dessert? Completely insane!

I agree with the reviewer below who was surprised at the negative reviews. I have been to Tocqueville many times, for lunch and dinner, and have always found the staff courteous and professional, the food excellent and the ambiance elegant and comfortable.
