The most UN-caring service in New York, bar none. Over one hour to get appetizers, waiter couldn't have cared less. Another waiter got them for us then forgot about us. After one ...

This is a very excellent choice for a 2/13/2014

This is a very excellent choice for a date the food is great and the decor is romantic in a rustic way. They have a decent wine selection but not great but their drinks are not watered down and all the food is made with quality ingredients more

Charming French bistro with excellent food and great service 1/9/2009

I was very pleased to find this cool little French bistro so close to Carnegie Hall, yet far enough away from the theaters that it isn't packed with pre-theater tourists. It's a romantic place with subdued lighting, tin ceilings, wood panelling and an authentic Gallic atmosphere. There are early 20th century French posters and photgraphs on the walls adding to the charm. The live vintage, pre-1940 jazz is a nice touch; I wouldn't be surprised to see the ghost of Django Reinhardt sitting at the bar! On the days or at the times that there is no band, there is good French music unobtrusively playing on the sound system. There is a long bar at the 56th street side which is great for a rendezvous, to meet friends, or just to listen to the live jazz. We have been here a number of times and found the service to be very attentive and prompt. Pros: Atmosphere, service, late hours, good value for a midtown French bistro more

LOVE it. 2/2/2008

It was my first time at Seppis and I can't wait to come back. The service was great! I had not one but two servers looking over me for anything I needed. Baby Chicken stuffed with mushrooms and potato gratin were great and the apple tart was perfect. Our party of six was well taken care of and everyone had great food. The steak Au Poirve with fries was the best I have ever tried and my friend almost wouldn't let me try it. All around great place. more


The most UN-caring service in New York, bar none. Over one hour to get appetizers, waiter couldn't have cared less. Another waiter got them for us then forgot about us. After one hour, 20 minutes promise by ""manager"" to ""go downstairs and check on our order."" Someone else got our dinner as we never did. Cons: Don't understand what ""service"" is supposed to mean. more

Good brasserie with period music 10/19/2006

I've eaten at Seppi's a number of times and have always left satisfied. The prices run about $15 for light fare and $26 for a large dinner entree. A glass of house wine is between $9 and $12 and bottles begin at $28. Many times there is a clarinet and bass duo playing old standards from the 30s and 40s, which contributes to the nostalgic, French atmosphere. The food is solid brasserie fare. The clientele is well groomed. The wait staffs diligence is average. Among the classic Art Nouveau posters and drawings that adorn the walls is a portrait of Abraham Lincoln (were not yet sure why hes included). I like to enter through Le Parker Meridien entrance on 57th Street because the scale of the mirrored hallway will always impress out-of-towners especially following a concert at Carnegie. I would recommend making reservations for groups of four or more. more

To be avoided 10/10/2006

We were there for dinner on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was noisy, service was terrible, food very average. The bill of course was impressively large. Clearly one of those expensive hotel restaurants that are to be avoided at all cost... more

The Worst Restaurant in New York City 4/16/2006

I have lived in NYC for three years and have been too many amazing restaurants. This was far from one of the best I have been too. I have never had such terrible service, with completely tasteless food that is overpriced. The waiters were rude, the service was terrible, not mentioning the restaurant was empty. Gratuity was added to a three person party and the service did not even deserve a dollar tip. There was no servic!!!!! I would never recommend this restauarant to anyone!!!! Unless you like being ignored, served tasteless food and overpaying. I would have had better food and service at McDonalds!!!! This restaurant is a turist trap and any intelligent person, turist or NY native would not and should not be caught dead here! more

Very cozy little place 3/9/2005

Seppi's is a very friendly neighbohood feeling bistro with greta French bistro calssics. The desserts are also amazing. Don't miss the chocolate buffet in Sunday. The prices are not low but hey this is NYC. For the area the prices seem very reasonable. Seppi's is another little gem in Le Parker Meridan's crown, in order of my preference, Burger Joint, Seppi's and Norma's, enjoy them all. more

A Perfect Hangout 12/20/2004

I'm from Los Angeles, and whether I'm staying at the Parker Meridien or not, my NY hangout is Seppi's. You can eat at the bar and either snack or have a full meal. The mix of regulars and travelers are always up for a conversation, and the bartenders make you feel at home. And where else can you have dinner at 2AM after arriving from JFK? Pros: Great Atmosphere, Varfied Menu, Awesome Bar Scene more

Romantic 1/24/2004

This is a very romantic, late night place. We had a bottle of wine, cheese, pate...and no one bothered us about having a full dinner, hurrying it up for the next seating....just a relaxed, wonderful atmosphere that has all the ingredients for romance. Pros: ambiance Cons: attached to a hotel more

Late Nite Bite 1/17/2003

I have eaten here about 5 times since its opening. The decor is quite attractive and I find the food to be quite good. I particularly like the recent changes to the late night menu which allows one the option of either a full meal or just a light snack. It doesn't hurt that I live in the neighborhood! Pros: decor and ambiance, diversified menu, hours of operation Cons: french waiters more

GREAT BREAD 12/18/2002

This is more of a bistro than a heavy french restaurant. I went there for a little catchup with the girls, the service couldn't have been better. I'm new to the west side and am glad that I have a place like this in the neighborhood. Would make a good date place, for quiet drinks or dinner. Braised beef gets kudos. Pros: BREAD, FOOD, AMBIANCE more

Star Studded 12/3/2002

We ate at the bar last night, and a real live movie star came in and sat next to us! Very fun, and the food was delicious. Patrick, the bartender, whipped up a hot toddy for my friend, and we loved the steak hache (hamburger with flavorful French goat cheese and delicious frites), the traditional tarte flambe, a thin crust pizza with goat cheese, onions, and prosciuto, as well as the onion soup, escargots, and sauteed spinach. Very pleasant, warm atmosphere. We'll definitely be back. Pros: Reasonable prices, Good food, Nice atmosphere Cons: A bit out of the way more

A surprise in midtown 11/29/2002

Who'd-a thunk that there would be a good French bistro in west midtown, in a mainstream, middlebrow hotel, for gosh's sakes?! It was one of those evenings where I just didn't have the get-up-and-go to travel anywhere to eat--and Seppi's is conveniently a block away. I braced myself for Bland City, and instead was pleasantly surprised by a surprisingly brisk bar scene, quick service and hearty, fairly priced food. The house pate was earthy, flavorful and big enough to share; the steak au poivre was juicy and bursting with flavor. Roasted baby chicken was succulent and tender, and a carmelized banana tart ended the meal on a decadent note. If you happen to be around W 56th, and want a casual-but-not-dingy, nice-but-not-TOO-nice dinner out, you could do a whole lot worse than Seppi's--it certainly leaves overpriced, underflavored Rue 57 in the dust. Pros: Classic bistro fare, Good bar scene, Walk-Ins accepted Cons: Semi-touristy more
