One of the worst meals I've had in NYC!

My BF and I made a reservation and still had to wait 45min. We would have left but it was peak dinner hour on a Saturday night so we figured it would be the same everywhere else. The service was rushed. My BF's mussels were overcooked and he actually had to spit one out in his napkin because it tasted so bad. I ordered Linguini with clams and it was awful. Pasta was undercooked and stuck together, clams did not t... view more

Don't bother making a reservation

Don't bother making a reservation. They don't honor them. I made an 8:30pm reservation. Upon arriving early (8:15pm), I was told that all reservations were pushed back a bit, which is reasonable considering that it was a Saturday night. When the hostess came back around at about 8:35pm, out of curiosity, I asked how much farther back are reservations being pushed. Her response was ""well, there are a few people ahead... view more

Paris on the LES

Last Thanksgiving Day when everything was closed, I had a nice trek of the LES with my sister when we happened upon this charming little place. They had a Thanksgiving Prix Fixe menu with Turkey but we opted for the grilled Octopus which was delectably soft and not rubbery, a great Steak Frites and a Clams with white wine sauce with Linguini - which we paired with a good red wine from Italy - Sacre Bleu! It's not a B... view more

French Kiss

I went to Lucien's for Lunch, after a few trips here, its not difficult to see that it pays to be a regular here. The food prices haven't changed in probably ten years... This is one of the cheapest espressos/cappuccinos in the city, Go to some fake euro corp, like the Soho Grand, pay six dollars for a cappuccino or 7 for toast. Here its under three. Wines priced close to retail, a restaurant that actually Wants yo... view more

Never Disappoints

I've been going to this small French bistro for over 10 years and it has never let me down. The food is delicious, the staff friendly and efficient and the restaurant's somewhat cramped tables make it a perfectly friendly NY joint. Typically I get the same order - frisee salad and filet mignon - and have never been disappointed. Sometimes there is a wait, but it's a good excuse to stand at the bar and get friendly... view more

WORST SERVICE EVER

After waiting for a very long time - seeing the waitress friends CUT in front of us - NO EXCUSE, no free drinks, nothing for that. they kept telling us 2 minutes and we waited more than 30 minutes. When it is 10 PM that is really long and only on the account of BAD service.\r We finally left without even eating - fed up.

Grendel

We recently had two meals there - the service was good but the food was somewhat inconsistent. My partner had Steak and Frites both times - while the first time it was great, the second time the steak was rather hard, uneven for medium-rare. The escargots were very mushy one time and the sea bass was passable. Seems the quality of food depends on your timing...

So-so. Moyen, pas plus.

If you're very hungry, this is not the place to go. The portions are tiny (especially the scallops) and the cassoulet tastes like it came straight from a can. And I like cassoulet! The ambiance is fine, but Lucien is just another bistro trying to be trendy while sacrificing the food. This is constructive criticism, by the way. I hope they get the hint. \r

Lucien Barks Like a Wild Dog!

Bad service! Bad Food! Bad! Bad! Bad!!! What a terrible experience! The owner Lucien was barking like a wild dog at his staff. The food sucked! Oysters stink! Steak fatty! We had a french waitress that gave attitude a new meaning! Stay away!
