My husband & I had another amazing evening at La Grenouille with Pepe as our wonderful captain. We both had lobster ravioli & grilled sole. I had floating islands & my husband had the gran mariner soufflé. The food and ambience make this restaurant such a special special treat for us when we visit NYC. We have never been disappointed...

We had a perfect meal for our family of four. It's not cheap, but it's worth it. Be wary of the prix fixe menu ($175 per person). Before we went, I visited the website and walked by the front window to view the menu. Neither example reflected the fact that the prix fixe menu was virtually the only option at... More

The venue was very nice, but the menu was probably New York French !! We had to ask for things I suppose I am saying they were not attentive and for $600 for two people it should have been better

If you are looking for classic French in midtown Manhattan, La Grenouille is the perfect spot. It is elegant -- the room is always filled with beautiful flowers -- and the food is equally elegant. It is classic French, beautifully appointed. As I dined there one Friday at lunch, celebrating a special occasion with friends, a gentleman at the next... More

For a truly special night out in the Big Apple, don't miss La Grenouille. The talented waitstaff will guide you through the prix fix menu and help you to choose a wine as well. The staff is very kind and most have been there for a long time. You will have a chance to pre-order your souffle in advance (pistachio... More

I would give it a Five star review if the prices weren't so high. The Service is superb as well as the beautiful dining area. Food is very good but too pricey since it is not so exceptional for this price range. I have enjoyed the experience many times regardless of price.

The fresh flowers, intimate setting and friendly attentive service make this a truly special place. The food was also very very good, albeit not as exceptional as one would think given the cost of the price fix. Overall, La Grenouille is noteworthy and I'd go back.

We were looking forward to dining at this icon for years For some reason we were not able to do it until no. Beautifully decorated with flowers, nice dining rooms. The food was OK, the value was not OK, the price is similar to what we paid to dine at Coucou the night before. Been there, done that Won`t go... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
