Best Bistro on the East Side

Great escargot, great steak frites. They have a wine special now, 50% off bottles over $100. Still a little rich for my blood, but this is still a cute little spot to refuel after shopping at bed bath and beyond.

A MUST TRY!

Tried Bistro 61 for the first time with my family. Older kids with picky appetites. Everyone loved what they ordered and raved about it afterward. From the professional, friendly staff (including the chefs) to the quaint, sophisticated ambiance, everything about this place was perfect. Next time you're in NY, I recommend you avoid the touristy, crowded restaurants in the theater district and head east to Bistro 61 where you'll be guaranteed a good meal and great service

Like My Home, Great Food, Good Company

My family and I go here at least once a week. They know my toddler and they play with him. The manager and servers know us by name. Great atmosphere. And of course I love their food. The soup, the mussels, the burger with foise gras, the pasta, the fish - you can't go wrong with this place.

next time

Famous for their seafood selection, a restaurant that has a very nice decor. I had the salmon which was average. The French Onion Soup doesn't quite have enough cheese, but overall flavor is ok. The only thing with this restaurant is that nothing really stands out in the flavors. The service was great but a little better than the food. I would still give this 3-4 stars as I am very critical and have high standards.

Neighborhood Favorite

I have been going to this place for several years. The food is consistently excellent. The staff is always friendly and welcoming, something that seems to be hard to find lately. No attitude, pleasant atmosphere, very professional execution - I am not surprised to see them busier than every. It is well deserved!

Nice little place

You wouldn't think it from the outside but inside is all brick and quite nice. There is a little bar up front and the lighting makes it somewhat romantic.

We started with the spicy mussles....which unfortunantly aren't very spicy but you get tons. The pasta I got was quite good and not too oiley. Drinks were a little pricey and on the weak side. Toss in all that fruit and nobody will know!

Best Restaurant in the Neighborhood

I have been going to this place for 2 years and I have never had anything but an excellent meal. The place is packed for a reason - the food is really good! You can tell when a French restaurant has a French chef - this one definitely has one. Besides great food, the space has a very comfortable feel to it and the service is terrific. If you are someone who understands and appreciates good food, you will definitely get this place. By the way, the burger has to be one of the best anywhere!
