L'Absinthe UES?

Is this French restaurant still around? Still delicious? I'll read some reviews but I wondered if anyone here has been there lately.

I haven't been there in years. Recent reviews aren't great:

It has changed. The last time I was there it was not great. Just good.

Some places I can recommend on the Upper East Side,

It's been about a year since I was there. I never thought the food was that great but the setting is gorgeous. Attracts an older crowd. Sorry to be a cynical NYer, but the French club is a (good imo) marketing idea for generating some business. Do you have to be in that area?

Thanks, everyone. I don't have to be in that area. I was looking for excellent French food that didn't cost the Earth and I didn't want fusion anything. Just straight up French. Thank-you
