Superbe!!! 3/22/2010

I LOVE this place. I am French, and new to New York, and visited this evening. What a wonderful time warp to what I imagine would have been 1940's-50's Paris! superbe! The owner, Robert, is so wonderful- WONDERFUL. The staff is equally as nice, and are actually french as well. The food is great, and so is the desert and the wine. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a real French experience. Pros: excellent service, authentic, wonderful owner more

How Have I Missed This Place??? 12/4/2007

I've worked down the street from Le Veau d'Or for 17 years and just had my first (hopefully of many) delightful lunch here. $20 for a delicious three-course lunch is amazing, especially when the choices are numerous, the food delicious and the portions perfect. The space is a mid-century time vault and should be on everyone's list of places to try - who knows how much longer the owner will be around? Speaking of which, Robert & daughter Cathy are just delightful. Check out the review & interesting history in ""The NY Sun"" newspaper on line. Pros: Delicious French fare, attentive staff, fascinating owner Cons: I didn't find it sooner. more

Best true French cuisine outside Paris! 11/20/2006

We made reservations for a Saturday night in mid-November, which turned out to be a smart move, as by 8 pm, every table ( only 14 total) was taken. Three older gentlemen were at the entrance as we walked down a few steps to enter the restaurant. We were seated immediately: the experience began! my wife and I had escargot, which you could actually smell the garlic and butter cooking in the kitchen as the chef prepared our meal just about 17 feet from where were seated. The escargot was tender and delicious! We ordered a bottle of the Boujallias Nouveau, which just came to the US this week. My wife had the seafood casserole and I had the duck in a cherry sauce reduction. Let me tell you... the duck was fabulous but the casserole, OH MY GOD! What a perfect dish. The mussles, scallops and shrimp were served over white rice covered with a white wine/butter/garlic/paprika and something else out of this world sauce that sent me into my own orbit!!! WOW!!! I actually couldn't speak after I had a forkfull. I finished my delicious duck, then happily finished my wife's remaining portion ( thank God she was full!) After I voraciously finished every grain of rice and seafood, we shared a peach melba that was T H E perfect ending to a true dining experience. The staff were professional waiters, meaning they knew their stuff. The young man doing the bringing-out and taking-of the dishes was great. A Parisian in training! YOU MUST EAT HERE!!! The patrons were older New Yorkers, probably right from this East Side neighborhood. My wife and I are in our mid 40's and were the youngest people there. I have dined in no less than 3 countries, 19 states, and in over 500 restaurants, and this was amoung the top 3 meals I have ever had. The best could have been the Chilean sea bass at the Bear and B ull at the Waldorf, then the lobster souffle at Chez Le Mer Michelle in Montreal. Pros: Everything you would want in a romantic French restaurant-great food, easy access. more

Best French food I ever had 5/8/2006

I went here on my honeymoon after reading about it on citysearh. This place is very cool. It is a tiny place and was not busy when we went. I had the skate. I have never had fish like this. It had a thin crust that had a lemon flavor. Trust me you need to eat at this place before you die. more

Literally, the best place in the city... 11/17/2004

I bring every new date to this place... If Robert has seen you more than once, you're family. If you consistenly bring cute dates, you're in the will. The food is consistenly amongst the best in the city, the old-world ambience will make any newbie fall in love with the place and Robert will make you feel as if you're a member of the court. Trust me, if you go to this place on a date, you're going to be kindly rewarded. For the record, this used to Hemmingway's old haunting ground back in the day. Pros: robert, robert, food, ambiance more
