La Goulue
Relaunched fixture for French cooking
French · East 60s · $$$
Following an eight-year closure, this onetime UES fixture has reopened in a different location serving classic French food and wine in a space with much the same look (courtesy of furnishings preserved by the owner), complete with dark woods, mirrors and soft lighting. There’s also a skylit back room.

I loved the old La Goulue so was very excited about its reopening. Unfortunately, my onion soup was full of bread-could not find onions. The 30 plus ounce steak for two was ordered medium rare. It arrived incredibly, incredibly rare and was sent back. We tried to alert a waiter after quite a while to check on our steak without avail. By the time we were able to get a waiter to retrieve our steak the rest of our party had finished their dinners. There are quite a few secondary waiters who seem to be in charge of only pouring water (also clearing plates) so it seems ever time you take a sip of water they are invading your personal space constantly and annoyingly refilling your sip of water. Hope the management can fix all of of this as a bill well north of $300 was presented that included one glass of wine, one bread soup (!) and three main entrées and two desserts.

Great service, cosy classy atmosphere, delicious food. Had tuna tartare, Dover Sole and profiteroles. All were delicious, tuna and sole didn’t even stand a chance of being captured in the picture- gone so quickly. Over all lovely experience. The only wish is to have some nice French music in a background to take and atmosphere on to the next level.

Excellent dining experience. At last a true French bistro on the UES. Every dish was excellent. Service also was seamless.
