    No other restaurant in New York captures the glamorous aura of France like La Grenouille. The menu includes rare delicacies like pan seared foie gras and frog legs sautéed in garlic and butter. Read more

    Don't miss out the most perfect bouillabaisse! Their signature is sole with Hollandaise sauce. Delicious. Very romantic, too rosy; VERY French and fancy. Men, grab a jacket (or they'll give you one).

    The soufflés at La Grenouille are just as iconic as the Midtown restaurant itself. The pillowy, eggy dessert is available in pistachio, espresso, and passion fruit varieties. Read more

    Have to go for the prix fixe menu. Begin with lobster bisque, sole, beef and veal very well prepared with great sauce. Of course, great service by the staff.

    A+ all the way! If you're looking for a sceney vibe & crowd, then look no further than La Grenouille; an institution 60 years of business to be exact. This is old-school NY meets old-world Paris!!

    The grenouille were okay but not as good as the previous time at this spot and not nearly as good as chez Andre in Paris. We were here on Saturday. Maybe the regular chef was on day off.

    Visit for ultimate in old-fashioned romance & classic French cuisine. Settle into plush red banquette amid riotous bouquets of fresh flowers & golden sconces. Food's pricey but guaranteed to impress.

    Pistachio soufflé was the star but I dream about the foie gras ravioli and onion soup on a daily basis

    They have changed their lunch menu to more limited choices. Food is still good but many of the best options are gone. Wine prices are highest in NYC. Food was good but place half full.

    The venerable midtown restaurant was the site for our April fashion spread, “NY, NY 10021”, and proved to be as classically New York as any place could get. Read more

    Soufflé is a must. Ask for the sauce with more grand mariner if that is the way you like it that is perfect for us

    A really solid, old school french restaurant. The best soufflé chocolat i've ever hard. But the waiters are so french so if you want warm service, go anywhere else.

    Go here for truly classic French cuisine such as Le Foie Gras Chaud aux Pêches, Little Necks Corsini, Les Ris de Veau au Romarin as opposed to some of the newer, trendier French eateries in the city
  • Damien I.
    Very disappointing. Average food, un-informed and lackluster service... all in all vastly over-priced, over-rated and not an enjoyable experience.

    Sit upstairs, more character and less stuffy. I'm not a fancy guy but if you feel like indulging this is the place to do it. So tip your nose up, get some champagne and pretend like your an oligarch.

    The scallops were very good as expected but not the best ever. The soufflés however were the best ever. I had lemon and she had grand mariner.

    If you are planning an intimate dinner for two ask for a corner table. The food, ambience & wine list are all devine. Most of the other tips are spot on!

    La Grenouille rocks in its own impeccable way. Put on a tie, order a plate of rognons de veau, and celebrate this New York City restaurant survivor with a round of soufflés.

    The ruby banquettes at this classic French restaurant have been graced by presidents, Mad Men and movie stars. Make a dinner reservation tout de suite and request a small corner table.

    This is the place to try old-school French dishes from the Gallic canon like cognac-flambéed veal kidney with mustard, or Provençal-style fried frog legs in a butter-tomato-garlic sauce. Read more

    The food is incomparable, as is the service in every respect. Beautiful room. Not inexpensive, but you'll be treated as if you were Louis XIV.
