I didn't mind it being the noisiest restaurant in NY; what I couldn't put up with was the dry, stringy roast chicken and below average plain mash. French?! No one would dare serve this up anywhere in France. And believe the praise for their French onion soup at your peril: My wife's F.O.S. tasted okay, but half the bowl was filled with a massive lump of cheese that seemed to have been added - twice - as an afterthought. Avoid this place. Nip across to Jay Shaffer's on 23rd, or even up ...view moreto the Shake Shack in Madison Square Park.view less
I have to say that the party continued late night after I left the bars and went into L'Express. Some people have said the crowdedness is a con but I think really just added to the end of my night.
The service and food was so great, I assume they are use to the crowded restaurant and they were extremely attentive even though it was crowded and some tables were rowdy. I was at a table with special orders and the food came out perfect without a side of attitude
I think this place ...view morewill soon become a staple and the end of the night. Spread the word, Love this place!view less
While the sun may be setting on my night, I have to say there is a true light at the end of the tunnel when I know that I can head right to L'Express for a delish end to the night.
While diners can be amazing there is a level of sophistication that is provided at L'Express that makes late night eating appear to be that much more civilized.
I stopped in with my 2 friends around 3 am on a Saturday night. The place was buzzing. However, my tea was barely warm and I requested hotter water. The waiter brought it, but he wasn't happy. Then my burger, which I've ordered there before, arrived with no cheese (also was barely warm). I asked the waiter who glared at me in a subdued manner, before saying in a controlled but obviously irritated voice, ""you have to request it if you want it.""!! Both my friends looked up in unison w...view moreith a shocked look. It was more so the manner in which he said it.
My other friend's water for tea was also barely warm, but she decided against asking the waiter to change it because he was so rude. She wanted to return her burger to be cooked a bit more for it was too raw, but because of the waiter with an unwelcoming attitude, she ate it without returning it. She is definitely not a shy person and would usually speak up if she's not happy with something. But we certainly didn't want him to take it out on our food.
I'm not saying he would, but we didn't want to risk it.view less
wow, used to like to pop in here but last two times were awful. i'm done with this spot. had laughably watery soup today, like a prop for a bad SNL skit, slow disinterested service, greasy calamari means i can do better anywhere else. get better quality food from any street vendor and better service at any fast food joint. ungood people, ungood.
After a night of partying, l'express is my soul food!!! THe french toast is great, and there eggs any which way you like it are awesome (love the eggs Benedict). It is open 24 HOURS!!!! The breakfast i love here, but the burgers are amazing too!!!! Definitly go, you won't regret it!
