Very nice prompt service,food was also good-my faves snails very just amazing,mussels in curry also were delicious .Perfect to have a light brunch at outdoor seating( at summer time of course). Pros: outdoor seating,yummi mussels Cons: little bit pricey for local lunch spot,but still it worth it more

Adorable and Delicious! 10/6/2006

Oh, I can't say enough about this cozy comfortable and unassuming restaurant. Three differnet decorated rooms all cozy and beautiful in their own right, reminding one of coutryesque settings. The Provencale style food is delicious. The fish soup is the best I've had in the city, as is the onion tart. Everytime I go, I try different fish dishes and have never been let down. the lamb chops were succulent and enjoyable. I can't think of a time I have ever had a bad meal, or experience here. You would be surprised to find who may be waiting on you, and you may get a kick out of their shirts, but relax and enjoy. What a wonderful spot in the middle of ""Little Long Island"" style bars and restaurants. Pros: Provencal Style Fish Soup, much more... more

Delightful classic French bistro with contemporary touches 7/17/2006

This has been a longtime favorite for me, my family, and friends. I always enjoy a warm welcome, and love both the evocative French-country atmosphere and the traditional dishes. The addition of ""small plates"" to the menu has been especially helpful when I'm trying to watch my waistline! A secret suggestion: ask if they have the ""cocotte"" for dessert, even if it's not on the menu. You'll thank me if they have it! more

an oasis on a sweltering day 9/16/2005

It was a 90 degree day and I had walked from Port Authority on my way to a hair appointment- I stepped through the door and Voila! I was transported back to Provence in an instant! Wonderful prix fixe $23 lunch- started with caramelized onion tart followed by cold poached salmon over a bed of julienned cucumbers with a great vinaigrette then ended with two small scoops of decadent chocolate mousse on a sauce of mocha. With a generous pour of house Cotes du Rhone it was perfection! more

Absolutely wonderful! 9/13/2005

Wonderful dishes: Their escargot in a pastry shell is my favorite escargot dish in all of NYC and Paris! My fiance is in love with their fresh bread w/ anchovie sauce (It sounds strange, I know.. but sooo good!) The provencale style fish soup is interesting and flavorful. And the duck breast in pear sauce is just delicious. However, the provencale style mussels were disappointing. For dessert: The lavendar creme brulee is delightful and interesting. The molten chocolate dessert is to die for! Wonderful service & decor: On top of all the great tasting dishes, the service is just wonderful and the atmosphere is so charming and quaint! Pros: great dishes, charming atmosphere, wonderful service Cons: can get pricey more

Luxury Within Reach 8/4/2005

If you ever wanted to escape the city and drown in a world steeped in culture, civility, and genuineness, La Mangeoire is a feast for the soul. With such superba dn authentic decor, immediately one is taken aback by the warmth and charm of the ambiance and the staff. With a myriad of options ranging from food selection to half plates, the sizable menu was not overwhelming, though disheartening: I HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO CHOOSE BECAUSE EVERYTHING SOUNDED AMAZING. The appetizers were not overfilling, introducing the tongue to the French flavors yet to come. The cranberry sorbet, also a welcome treat to end the meal on. Everything from portion size, to knowledgable waitstaff, to cheery owner, to dim lighting make for a peaceful and engaging meal your stomach and tastebuds will never forget. BONNE SOIR! more

A perfect mediterranian oasis 8/3/2005

I am a young professional who found this local staple to be nothing less than perfect. The old world style, inviting atmosphere and regional cuisine fit a budget and was much more practical than taking a trip to Riviera. Their sidealk dining area, lined with colorful planter boxes, was much more private and cozy than most sidewalk dining you find on NYC streets. I cant wait to come back here with frinds and family. Pros: great food, warm atmosphere, outdoor seating Cons: small bar more

Over Priced 5/16/2004

I don't mind spending money on a nice meal, but this was the most insulting overpriced, tasteless meal I've ever had. The glorified ""half plate"" sounds like a nice option but is a complete joke. When they mean baby lamb chops, they mean miniscule and fatty, but don't worry you get 2 of them for $20.00. Quality is not based on quantity but this was terrible. Shrimps were extremely fishy, Vegetables and potatoes were tasteless additions. more

Charm, quality & value 5/24/2003

Some friends had recommended this restaurant. I went there for dinner with my husband and was enchanted by the decor. I recently gave a bridal shower for my niece and every body raved about the food and the service. The maitre d' was also very helpful and charming. Really one of my favorite French bistros! Cannot beat the southern French atmosphere and the food is straightforward. Regular portions are very plentiful so small plates are a good option and help the budget. I highly recommend this neighborhood gem. Pros: very charming, great food for the price Cons: tight seating in back room more

Valentine's Day 2/16/2003

My husband and I went to La Mangeoire after a friend recommended it. It's a cozy place with a warm feeling and nice simple decoration. -It was Valentine's day and the place was packed. We didn't have to wait to be seated, but as the night went by, other couples waited by the entrance. The food was good, the holiday menu was delicious. We really enjoyed each course. Well, the service... it's hard to evaluate considering that it was an atypical day, but my husband and I had to ""catch"" the waiters to get another glass of wine. Friendly staff when in contact. Pros: Good food Cons: NY price... more

charming french restaurant 2/11/2003

this is a wonderful little french restaurant. service is excellent. the food is always reliable and beautifully presented. the rooms are pretty and have a french country home feel. the prix fixe brunch is an excellent value - had several cups of coffee at no extra charge...leave room for dessert! Pros: excellent service, good value-prix fixe, nice decor more

Two great meals 8/15/2002

I've eaten at La Mangeoire twice and found it be very good food both times. Most recently I tried the peppercorn steak with mashed potatoes and garlic spinach. The steak was cooked to perfection and the various flavors complemented each other nicely. The atmosphere is intimate and authentic. It is a bit pricey, but I think it's worth the expenditure. Another winning attribute of La Mangeoire: it's a nice change of pace in an area dominated by indistinguishable irish pubs and lame after work bar and grills. more
