An upper East Side gem, you wouldn't know it was there - and that's the way the neighborhood likes it. It's a lovely French bistro run by two sisters who treat you like you are one of their oldest clients, even if you are new to their hospitality. I started with the beet and celeriac remoulade - and as my brother said, it's a perfect way to kick start a good meal. It's delicious, cleanses your palate and makes you feel fresh!
My entree was an artic char served on a ratatouille, with a mussel sauce. I am not a huge mussel fan, so felt well rewarded for taking the risk when the sauce was light, infused with saffron, and let the char shine through. Dessert doesn't have to be one thing or another - they'll let you have a bit of this and a scoop of that. Not to be missed - the chocolate mousse and lemon tart. Anyone who finds the service here anything but accomodating and gracious just isn't trying. We found not only refuge during the snow storm, but a satisfying and superb dinner out!

This old restaurant has declined sharply. The atmosphere was very unfriendly and the service was poor---we got a very poor reaction from our waitress. The fish was not what we were lead to expect. The wine recommmended was not very good, either. This is all disappointing because this was one of our favorite restaurants for special occasions, like our wedding anniversary. Considering that its prices are high, we will not be going back.

Pros: Neighborhood, spacious

Cons: atmosphere, waitress, disappointing main course

While the people were nice and there was a nice quiet atmosphere, for the price the food was unacceptable.

I had the duck, which was okay, but excessively over cooked. My boyfriend order the special, Le Boeuf a la mode, and it was shameful! It was like airplane food, or cafeteria food! The beef was overcooked, in a non-amazing brownish sauce with old frozen carrots and freezer burnt peas. My god! I was shocked to see someone served that in a restaurant.

Also, the desserts were unremarkable and too sweet. The appetizers were pretty tasty, but still.... not enough so to make up for the frozen veggies.

Le Boeuf a la mode means 'The beef in the current fashion.' This restaurant was definitely not in the current fashion. More like the fashion 50 years ago.... and the crowd who went there reflected that.

Cons: food, price

My husband and I go to this restaurant when we are in need of some very tasty food on special occasions. Though the atmosphere and decoration are totally not to our taste, the food allows us to overlook that completely. The food is consistently excellent. We often have great food when eating out in this city, but we have found that most places will disappoint, at least on occasion. They have a desert-cart, which I love, though I'm always torn between the creme caramel and the chocolate mousse. If your first concern when eating out is simply food, then this restaurant is for you.

Pros: Prix-fix menu and dessert-cart with creme caramel

Cons: A slightly stuffy and not happening atmosphere, but comfortable nevertheless

The food, the service, the decor, and the ambiance are first class. The menu items are, by and large, classic French. The wine list is well chosen, and reasonably priced. The clientele are generally well mannered, well dressed, and the sound level is such that one can carry on a conversation with one's dinner companion without raising one's voice. It is a restaurant whose owners actually considers dinning to be a civilized pleasure. Imagine that!! No wonder the couple with unruly children were asked not to return. They were beyond their class, and should learn how to spell "appall", and the difference between "your" and "you are", before posting a review.

As a family tradition my family has attened their Christmas Eve's there for many many years. This year we bought our twin daughters to join us and they were very well behaved, just social. My husband and I were appauled my the attitude of the Hostess and the waiter when they told us to "get out, get your children out of here, your no longer welcome in our restaurant" claiming our children were misbehaving. While the food is decent, I'll never go back there again. We'll take our tradition else where.

Pros: Average French Cuisine

Cons: Don't like children, Very small and cramped dining area

After being in the neighborhood for 7 months, I finally gave this quaint looking restaurant a try. My girlfriend and I found the food quite good, but nothing extraordinary, especially by Manhattan's standards. Our waiter, on the other hand, acted as though he was playing the part of the arrogant French waiter in a Saturday Night Live skit. He acted as though it was an imposition on his august presence to deal with us. To be fair, the rest of the staff were efficient and courteous, but the waiter soured our experience and ensured we won't be returning.

Service was very slow although friendly. Food was average, if you're in the neighborhood go to Sirabella's instead!
