Keith McNally’s “legendary” SoHo brasserie “still delivers the goods” with its “magnifique” French fare ( “blissful” breakfast, “oh such wonderful” breads) and atmosphere straight out of “Belle Époque Paris” ; it’s “always buzzing” with “locals and tourists alike” , plus a “celebrity or two” , meaning the “tight quarters” can be a “madhouse” – but that’s part of what makes it “a New York classic.”

Picturesque interior with an olden day feel that makes you feel like you're in a movie. The food is pricey so be prepared to pay. We ordered a custom seafood platter which was superb. Crab, oysters, prawns (shrimp), lobsters and mussels were all fresh and served so that the meat is easy to eat. The accompanying sauces were also great

I'm sorry, but I don't get it. It is nearly impossible to have a conversation with the person sitting next to you as the noise level is deafening, akin to that what you hear at a soccer game in Central Europe. Food is so overpriced for example, a salad that cost no more than $0.50 to make is $18 and could not feed a two year old. The service was marginal at best ... the waiter never came over to check on how we were doing if everything was okay. A couple of the servers and the bus boys seem to be homeless people that were given a job, nothing against homeless, but a little finesse and skill at those prices would have been appropriate. Just don't get it.

Excellent food and good service. I recommend the goat cheese tart to start. The mussels are also amazing as was the burger. The escargos were decent but I had better. The decor is typically French
