    Everything is good at Lafayette. From the cocktails to the oysters to the baked goods to the lavishly presented slices of birthday cake, they always do a great job. Pictured is the Niçoise salad.

    The sprawling French brasserie from Andrew Carmellini and team is everything an all day restaurant should be. It's great for a relaxed breakfast, a business lunch, or a steak frites dinner. Read more

    Amazing French pastries, breads and baked goods, great atmosphere and solid lunch/brunch options including this brisket burger w/ crispy fries. Prices aren't low but the experience lives up to them.

    The atmosphere, decor, service and food are fantastic! I highly recommend the Grilled Asparagus and Frisée Salad to start and the Duck as an entree. Pastas good, too. Big wine selection. #nyceats

    Andrew Carmellini’s brasserie is a love letter to all things French, from the expertly baked brioche and pain au chocolat for sale at the in-house boulangerie, to the Bloody Marie at brunch. Read more

    The brunch menu includes many of the standout dishes from the breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus. You can get a foie gras terrine, salads, soups, omelettes, steak frites, and tripes Bourguignon.

    As far as $14 cocktails go, the saisonniere is really quite special. Oysters, asparagus, and octopus as starters! Steak frites = real deal. Finish with the chocolate-almond torte and then die happy.

    A great bistro. A bit of a pretentious vibe but the food is good. I like to take meetings in the front or outside with just a coffee and a pastry. Also they have two soft boiled eggs for breakfast <3

    Had a late night meal here when every other restaurant was just serving drinks. Sat at the bar and had a great chat with the bartenders and the kitchen staff food was excellent drinks were excellent.

    The gigantic soft-shell crab drew actual moans of bliss from diners. Masterful salads, excellent wood-grilled local trout. For birthdays, they wheel out a “macaron tower” that spews flame. Read more

    The fresh smoked salmon Eggs Benedict at Lafayette in NoHo is served on a brioche bun. The accompanying toast was perfect to soak up the remaining yolk and rich sauce! Read more

    The French toast is just plain delicious and unique with the pineapple. Great twist on a Bloody Mary, try the bloody Marie! The use of cork and other materials throughout the design of the interior A+

    One of my fave new brunch spots! Everything I've had is delicious. The pamplemousse is a perfect brunch cocktail and the lemon pancakes are awesome. The restaurant is spacious and beautiful as well.

    Highly recommend the charcuterie plate. It's sizable and comes with a great group of tasty items including rabbit, duck mousse, 2 pâtés, and much more. Unbeatable for the price; great starter for 2!

    Big spacious place. Pricey menu for what it is but there are some solid choices. The duck is phenomenal with pumpkin and pomegranate. Steaks are great. Oysters on point. Cocktails quite yummy.

    A great choice for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner... or just a quick snack from the bakery. Everything is amazing on the menu, so you really can't go wrong. (The pancakes are especially good!)

    RW menu is worth it. salmon croquette and mussel for appetizer is the bomb! Mushroom risotto and skate is also not bad. Desserts are okay but nothing impressive. Also try the cheese, you have to!

    Stick to the bakery and try the almond croissant. It's like a crispy cookie on the outside with creamy almond paste on the inside between layers of flaky, buttery pastry. Absolute perfection.

    I've never had a bad meal here. Brunch, lunch and dinner have all been amazing. Grab petit fours on way out from bakery. Better than anything in dessert menu.

    Best croissants! Toast with 2 boiled eggs perfect for a simple breakfast! Their granola is amazing! Ask if they add fresh mint to the yoghurt&berries and guaranteed best breakfast (portions are big).

    The Chilled Tomato Soup and the Duck Au Poivre makes for a perfect dinner. We always find it hard to decide between the Caramel Popcorn Bombe & the Cheese Course. Why not have both! Oui, Chef!

    Perfect for date night or dinner with the parents. Service was A+ and both of our waitresses recommendations were great: the duck and spaghetti nicoise were both great and had enough to take home!

    Just stumbled upon this place & feel like I've stepped into Paris. Baguettes are the real deal here. Truly hard to find in NY. Iced cwaffee better than my usual haunt. Will be back for dinner for sure

    Yes, it's great for brunch but the cafe in the front is perfect for a coffee meeting or a break from your desk during the day.

    Part bakery, part bistro, Lafayette serves an array of French-inspired dishes. Opt for the Salmon Benedict or Lemon Pancakes for brunch, and don't forget to share the Boulangerie Basket.

    French onion soup with short ribs? If it was dripping with Gruyere on top it would have been perfect. With the little toast and small piece of cheese it was great.

    Almond croissants are among the best in the city. Stop by for one with a cappuccino while you read the in-house NY Times.

    Despite shaky service (slow drink order, wrong food brought out), everything was delicious and the atmosphere was terrific. Great sazerac to drink. Wonderful bread. Good pasta dish (fleur de soleil).

    To try: tartines, lardon-rich salad frisée, squid-ink fettuccine with shellfish and chorizo, risotto with mushrooms & asparagus, country pâté, foie gras terrine, topped off with a Sazerac.

    One of the few brasseries in town using good coffee, Lafayette pulls tasty shots of Stumptown Hairbender, which can be enjoyed along with their scrumptious baked goods in the front bakery area.

    Second chance. Atmosphere is amazing, food is FAIR. Pastas are good, meats are OK, apps & bread basket is the best part. Get the Frisée salad w bacon, beef tartare, short rib ravs....not impressed.

    The vegetarian offering has a veritable tricolore theme, too, with layers of fresh mozzarella, stalky broccoli rabe that adds a delightful snap, and a hearty buffer of peperonata.
