I have passed French Roast for years and never stopped in until the other night. It is a busy place, tightly packed tables with a high noise level, The food was great,. I had the salmon - superbly done, probably the best grilled salmon I've ever had. They have a Happy Hour special. When I inquired I was told it... More

The good: the food tastes good The bad: the menu is not always a good indicator of what you get. Example: Tomato and Goat Cheese Croquette gets you a salad of pretty-good-for-winter tomatos and 3 marble-sized goat cheese 'croquettes'. We were so surprised that something with top billing was such a small part of the plate that we asked the... More

I been coming here for years. I worked around the corner in the 90s so I am happy to this place still serving great food, great coffee and good cocktails. I almost don't want rave too much because part of its charm is that is not a heavily visited place I always find good seating. Awesome views for people watching... More

I have eaten here twice. Usually I get the mussels but they were out of them. French Onion soup was delish!!! This is inexpensive for a French restaurant. Nice selection of wines and they are open late. We went after theatre and loved it.

We were looking for a place that was open late for drinks and dessert and this fit the bill. The service was amazing and they had great cappuccino. I would like to go back for breakfast on a future visit. It was still busy and serving food at 11:30 PM so that is a good sign.

Interesting neighborhood - friendly and welcoming. Our steak - cooked just the way we wanted it. Perfect for a night-ender with wine and great company.

I literally fell into this restaurant at the end of each of three exhausting days. The staff were lovely and I was able to sit outside and quietly observe the world go by and enjoy a very pleasant dinner and a glass of wine.

If it was meant to be French Roast Coffee then sadly the management missed the point. When the French serve coffee, if it's not served iced then it's served hot, not tepid. The cheese plate was served cold, though grape plate would have been a better description. The Salmon Cake special was presented nicely with a sort of sunflower design... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
