General Info:
Set on Park Avenue South, between 28th and 29th Streets, Brasserie Les Halles serves a collection of classic dishes from the finest brasseries in Paris. The speciality of the house is the French Cuts of Meats, simply char-grilled and served with award-winning French Fries. Les Halles' long list of various steaks comes from the in-house butcher. The French butchering technique looks for unique qualities in each cut, providing different tastes and textures in each type of steak. Les Halles buys Prime American beef, naturally tenderised by two weeks of wet aging. The beef is then dry aged in-house for 21 days at 36-degrees Fahrenheit to concentrate the flavours. The original plaster mouldings in the restaurant date from the early 1900's, when the building was erected to house a restaurant specialising in healthy foods. The most famous menu item at the time - a blend of fresh vegetable juice to order - was later licensed and bottled under the brand V8! The large menu is designed to accommodate all tastes, appetites and budgets, and free Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout.

You know, this place gets talked up a lot, but it's not really that amazing. Better people watching than food.

a huge disappointment

I went for brunch with friends. I ordered the smoked salmon omelette. What a disappointment. The eggs were loose, runny, undercooked and cold. The fries were cold and had no taste. We will not go back. And in addition, the place could use a good painting and refurbishing. It looks old.

The finest of France

The food here is absolutely out of this world. Possibly the best dining experience I've had in the city to date. If you're looking for THE French spot in NYC, Les Halles all the way!

Excellent and not pretentious

This place is now on my list to visit every time I'm in NYC. My co-workers and I shoot for finding a quieter time to visit, and have not been disappointed yet. I've only been here three times, but looking forward to more. The steak frites is, of course, amazing. I haven't yet figured out what black magic they use on the fries. The duck confit was one of the more enjoyable plates I've eaten.

Careless Service + Iffy Food = Stay Away

Don't let the lure, or even lose connection, of a celebrity chef fool you- Bourdain wouldn't eat here either these days. Went for a late dinner (like 9:30) on 1/15/10. We were seated in the room in the front of the restaurant that's sectioned off from the rest of the place- it was inside, but still cold. The two draft beers ordered were room temperature- I asked the waiter if my beer was supposed to served on cask because it was so warm. After a few confused looks, I explained that it was too warm. He took both beers back and returned with refills in chilled glasses, which helped (temporarily). Note, we ordered different beers, so they couldn't use the ""they just replaced the keg"" excuse because they were both warm. The other cocktail, a scotch, was clearly not what was ordered, but my dining partner was just as happy with whatever it was. Three of the four entrees came out, with the runner having no idea which plate went where. We waited for the fourth entree... and waited... and waited... Probably close to 10 minutes. When it came, it was the wrong dish. Once we flagged the waiter and called his attention to it, his response was ""Ok."" He took the plate back- no ""oh, sorry about that"" or anything close to apologetic at any point thereafter. After another 10 or so minutes the replacement dish came- a dreadfully dry chicken sandwich. Of the two beef dishes, one was reported to be good, while the other was tough and not tasty. The mussels were good- excellent broth, but two unopened ones were served. Just everything about it was careless- busboys asking us to hand them plates, hostesses and waiters standing around chatting, waiter and runner not putting the correct drinks and plates with the correct person, the food itself wasn't convincingly good... Just skip it. If you want steak frites, just go to L'Express 8 blocks down- probably not much different on quality or service, but at least cheaper.

GOOD LUNCH DEAL


This is by far the closest to a Parisian Bistro in NYC.
The Rillettes du Boucher were surprisingly good .
As for the service, waistress did not know the difference between a Steak Frites (whihc was ok) & a Beef tenderloin. Also she did not know about the wine menu... pretty basic I think ....
Overall is a good place to go for lunch.

Excellent food. Very noisy

The best Steak Au Poivre I ever had. Awesome experience. All the foods in the table were equally great.

STILL TERRIFIC FOOD BUT HORRIBLY NOISY

We loved going to Les Halles when it first opened many years ago (hard to believe) though it was small and cramped and gave off incredibly snobby French attitude. Over the years it has doubled in size, and the attitude is now American rather than French snobby. We don't go very often any more because it is incredibly noisy...We tried it again last night---a humid Saturday summer night....the food was still good---the kir we ordered was horrible but the manager took it off our bill---our waiter was very nice...but the place is horribly noisy. All that noise, at least for me, takes away from the enjoyment of the meal, no matter how good the food is...so I've decided never to go back, except perhaps on a weeknight...and maybe not even then. The nearby and terrific Ponty Bistro now has own praise...try it.
