We just love this place. The food is always great, it's right near great nightlife, and it's bigger than your average east village restaurant so you don't feel suffocated sitting 3 inches from the person next to you that you don't know. The prices are reasonable, and the drinks are great too!
My experience was exactly the opposite of green frog. The service was impeccable, food was great and portions were a nice size. I really recommend ordering the grilled eggplant appetizer and the spicy chicken entree! As an added bonus, we spotted Coco Rocha, Tyson Beckford and Amy Sacco in the house.

i sat at the bar, waiting for the rest of my party to arrive. 15 minutes after i ordered, and still no drink. by this time, my friends arrived and we were seated -- so i saved the $12 for my would-be cocktail. once at the table, the waitstaff mixed up the appetizer, entree AND after-dinner drink. above average food, and the portions were almost family-style sized. if only they could get the service together...

i have to say the only good part of this restaurant was the ambiance (even this wasn't spectacular) and the nice hostess in the front. i ordered a duck salad dish as an appetizer, and the duck was so overcooked and hard. not only that but the salad was so overpowered with the dressing that i couldn't taste the actual contents of this dish. i ordered a fish dish wrapped in banana leaf and again, fish was over-cooked. flavor was mediocre to say the least. i honestly had better food in any take-out place, rather than here. i would not come here again, nor would i recommend it to anyone. for their price tag, the least i expect is good food and they did not provide that. now i know better!

Although I had put the stroller in the reservation, and had confirmed it with their caller, they never mentioned the two sets of stairs that have to be mounted, never offered to help with the stroller, and made us wait ten minutes at the host stand while they figured out where to put the stroller. Then they seated us in the stupidest location, the center of traffic where every server and guest knocked my chair on their way in and out, in and out. Just don't even think of eating there unless you have a booth, they looked comfortable and even possibly romantic- as you could get close enough to your date to speak without SHOUTING over the music. There were two children there - very well behaved, both yawning at their respective tables. Reading the other reviews I see this place is best for it's night ""scene"" if that's what you are into- but please don't say its about the food. Or the drinks. We ordered their Mojito and a Bellini and their Black and Blue. The Mojito was so bad we did not drink it. We had to ask to have it removed from the bill. The Bellini was nice. We canceled the Black and Blue because it was so hard to eat our meal while being battered by passers-by. We couldn't wait to get out of there. The crab cakes fell apart and into the sauce. (Why bother to wrap disposable chopsticks in a napkin?) Appetizer duck dish you could get at any Chinese delivery. The January reviewer should know that this time the Bass and the Duck were on the menu, and they were both only fair. Bass served on an odd log of ginger, it's so dark you can't see what you are eating with your cheap chopsticks. I did not even finish the duck entree - which is unlike me. By this time my stomach was upset. Our server Kim was the only great part - but even she got flummoxed and forgot our desserts. We took them to go and plan to give them away, not interested. Sorry to admit, its 7 hours later and I still have gas. Boy am I glad I only paid $35!

From the Beverly Hills Hotel-esque banana leaf walls to the perfect pineapple capirihnas, Indochine remains one of my top 5 favorite places to go in Manhattan. The service is attentive, the lighting is super-flattering, the music is always up-to-date, the atmosphere is a perfect mix of louche downtown decadence and uptown propriety and most importantly, the food is delish. I try to go at least once a week for spring rolls and a bloody mary (extra horseradish) and always run into friends from the worlds of fashion, cinema and journalism. The genius of the place is its ability to be simultaneously as appropriate for dinner with mom as it is for a raunchy, boozy, slut-tastic night out with your friends. My only complaint is that the bathroom is too small. The place is always so full of people that you end up having to wait, which is never a good thing after a few pineapple capirihnas (or bloody marys).

I love Indochine!!!! I am a regular and i usually go on friday or saturday......when i walk in, i am greeted by lovely girls, nice ambiance, soft music, and it it perfect not only for a romantic date, but also with friends...and the crowd is young and fresh, full of energy...( i go there usually at 10 pm)
Sometimes, i crave the food so bad that i have to stop by during the week to have an appetizer and a glass of wine at the bar......
I love the beef salad and the spicy chicken, u gotta try it...ah, also the steam ravioli, AMAZING.....
The place has been rocking and rolling for more than 20 years....
i am going this friday for sure.....see you there!!!!!!
