As a first time visitor to NYC, I did not know where to go to eat so I stumbled upon The New French while exploring the neighborhood. I can honestly say everything was perfect. I had the pulled pork and for dessert I had the cheesecake. The staff made me feel welcome and went out of their way to stop by my table and visit. When I left the restaurant I told my server that I would be back and I can't wait till I am back in NYC to keep my word!

From the moment we entered the restaurant, the staff did everything to make us feel like we were regulars in this neighborhood find! We started with the goat cheese pizza and pulled pork appetizer thinking it couldn't get better from there, but we were definitely wrong. The entrees were even more impressive and the menu has so much range, from a simple burger with not so simple taste, to a delectable braised lamb entree...not one plate on our table dissappointed. The meal ended with what I will say to this day was the most perfect cappuccino I have ever had. Major kudos to the chef and staff of this chic, comfortable and affordable hidden treasure in the heart of the Village.

After a more than an hour wait, we were expecting much better food. The pate we had as an appetizer was good, but the entrees... I had mussels, which lack in taste and were very cheap, tiny variety. My husband ordered the special of the night - scallops. He was served THREE pieces of scallop for the price of $25! They were ok, but overall we could not help but think that they buy their food in COSTCO. Low quality was written over everything.

Off to a bad start with a glass of prosecco that was flat. Male server was really cordial and attentive, but 2 other female servers were gruff, kinda rude and lacking in any finesse. The New French salad is really pretty damn good and can easily be shared by 2. The pulled pork sandwich can be had better at any other BBQ place. The pho was not so good due to it being slathered in cooking oil. My boyfriend had to ladle out half of the both due to it's greasiness, but for what it's worth the noodles and beef, and toppings were okay. Skipped dessert and neaded out disappointed since I really wanted to like this place as it's a cool space with a cute crowd for a Friday night.

Pros: cute space

Cons: food not so cute

The terrible and uncomfortable experience provided by the waitresses at The New French overshadows everything else about dining here and it's unfortunate because the food was actually good. After being lectured about arriving with only 5 of our 6 people on the reservation (one had to cancel at the very last minute) we were treated cordially, but lazily, during the meal. As we asked for the remainder of our bottle of white wine towards the end (they were keeping it in a cooler away from our table near the counter), we were told that we were wrong to think we had more and that we had drank it all. The waitress then admitted that it was accidentally served to another couple, but assured us she had already served us more from another bottle of wine. This was completely unacceptable, but we let it go and discussed it amongst ourselves at the table. The other waitress, and then our waitress, both came over asking what our problem was and telling us we weren't understanding the situation. It ended with our waitress saying, "I don't understand why you're giving me attitude." Overall, we left The New French with a terrible feeling of being treated condescendingly and disrespectfully. I would NOT recommend this restaurant to anybody. With all the great food available in the city, it's not worth it to be treated the way we were.

Cons: waitstaff, atmosphere, noisy

While dining at this restaurant, my friend and I couldn't help but feel like we were butt end of a joke that was going around from the front of the house to all the way behind the line (kitchen). Waiters seemed to have to stifle laughter on approach to the table and when upon asking for the check and looking back at the entire room and staff, they all began giggling. Not exactly a hospitable experience; to feel like your on the outside of an inside joke and the butt of it. We were also the only patrons there at 6pm.

If that's speculative on my part this is not: I found the menu extremely limited and service apathetic and snobbish. Albeit, the food was decent (what they had) it was totally overwhelmed by walking away from the experience with a "bad taste" in my mouth.

Bring back the charming "Gamin" restaurant with delightful menu and a hip, fun and pleasant staff!!!

Pros: Cinnamon Scented Bathroom

Cons: Limited Menu & Snarky Staff...all of them.

This is truly a great little find in the village. The menu has great pulled pork and brisket as well as one of the best burgers I have ever had. I would have eaten anything on the menu it all looked great. The beer and wine lists are very good and the staff is attentive. Coffee and deserts were also very good. All around this place gets five stars. I highly recommend it and will definitely go back.

A comfortable atmosphere in equally comfortable neighborhood. The Menu is short yet diverse. French classics like Moules or steak with frites but some non traditionals like a butter Crostini served with pulled pork. But the pork is more like the stuff you'd get in a fancy taco not like bbq. Also the salad was big and flavorful. Raddicio, beets and pears in a light dressing. And yes the Creme Brulee. It had a fresh custard body. Not like the stuff that's been sitting in the fridge for a few days and the flavor was exciting. Spicy, smoky and gingery. A decent beer and wine list too. Hats off to the Chef!!!

Pros: Fresh and exciting at a reasonable Price

Cons: Waitstaff could have been more energetic
