I have been to this restaurant many times during the years, so it was an easy choice when I happened to be in the neighborhood one day in early November. It was a beautiful day, a perfect opportunity to have lunch outside. I was seated, given the menu, but no one showed up for about 20 minutes to take my... More

We went on a Saturday night and everything we had was delicious. My wife and I chose the bouillabaisse, featuring fresh red snapper and (too few) mussels. The broth was more of a bisque, but delicious. Grilled salmon was fresh and exceptional and a friend tried the Choucroute Garnie, a tribute to Oktoberfest featuring many wursts. Huge portions, and very... More

Atlantic salmon was wonderful and my colleagues both really enjoyed their entrees. Good presentation. Never saw our server after placing our order. Had to ask for a dessert menu twice, had to ask for check three times including getting up and going to the host stand. The food's great, but be prepared to start flagging down passing waitstaff because you... More

Just a few streets down from Columbia on Broadway, a good cafe spot for lunch. We had the lamb burger which comes with fries and an interesting herb-flavored dip. Rustic bread. Good service, the best part is perhaps the French style ambience.

Was in town for a meeting at Columbia University and walked in to try this place for lunch. They have nice outdoor seating as well as indoor and bar seating. I sat at the bar and was waited on by a very good bartender. Placed my food order, the Chicken Club Sandwich, the service was prompt and the sandwich was... More

We just had a fabulous meal at Le Monde! I had the lamb shank, and it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious! I was scooping up the sauce in my fork, wishing I had a spoon (which of course I could have asked for). Then we had the profiteroles for dessert, and that was also scrumptious. Service was friendly, and we were able... More

It was hard to relax and enjoy the outdoor dining and good food at this attractive café, as we were having to pursue service for the duration of our meal. We waited 20 minutes to give our order, and then only after having to track down wait staff. All told, it was 60 minutes from being seated to finally being... More

We had our dinner at Le Monde after moving our daughter into her dorm room. This French restaurant has a character! We love going there because you always get great food at a reasonable price. The wait staff is always friendly and the atmosphere is nice, too!

We stopped in after a stroll on a summer's eve for a magical LATE dinner! It was a weeknight (9:15) and the crowd at the cafe was a fun-loving bunch. The staff was courteous, welcoming, friendly and helpful ! The sidewalk seating was comfortable and roomy . The mussels were the special feature of the evening... I have never had... More

Le Monde is a cute French Bistro up across from Columbia University. The food is fresh. My daughter had a Croque Monsiuer and it was terrific. The onion soup with gooey melting Gruyere cheese was fantastic. The goat cheese salad was generous and delicicious (I asked for shrimp with mine.) they have indoor and outdoor cafe seating when the weather... More
