Service
 
A “gorgeous” , “expansive” space with “plenty of room to breathe” lures “beautiful people” to this “bustling” all-day NoHo cafe that’s a showcase for Andrew Carmellini’s “hearty” French cooking; insiders say it “shines best at breakfast” , though the front bakery is a “great pit stop” for “delicious bread” and “delectable” pastries any time.

It used to be good. We've been here six times, and left happy. Our waitress was polite, But Sadly Their Food Quality Really Dropped. The dishes we selected came nicely plated, but they were so highly salted we couldn't believe it. Is there a new chef or new owner? We don't need to come back here since there are so many other places to go.

The bartender was fun to talk to and made great cocktails! He talked me through a cocktail of what I was in the mood for and sprung it on me. It was delicious. Will need to go back and try the food!

5.13.18 - we stopped in without reservations at 11 AM and only the bar was available. Luckily, the bartender was amazingly attentive and thoughtful in rushing out order, refilling our coffee, and providing us a container with hot water for a bottle. Not once did he make us feel like we were asking too much or distracting him from his primary role. The space is charming, but there seems to be some lack of energy around the bar. The restaurant filled up by 1045, so get there early or make reservations. The food was rich and filling. We got one Croque Madame, decaf coffee, and pressed juice. It's pricey, but the service made up for it. A lot of families eat here, so the staff is generally accommodating.
