Le Gigot's lamb is wonderful; even my Greek husband thinks it is some of the best he's eaten in NY. Also notable are the crab cakes - lots of big chunks of crab meat.
the downside is the space is so small that you feel cramped, but the food makes up for any discomfort.

We have been going to this beautiful cozy resturaunts for 10 years. We always make a reservation months ahead of our annual trip to NYC for the US Open. No more as their reputation seems to have gotten the better of them. The appetizers were very good but the entrees were far below par and our waiter spent no time with us and failed to even explain the chalk board specials. the owner, who we have always admired and adored, gave us a passing apology but clearly didn't want our feedback. She dismissed us with a "I didn't charge you for the entrees" but didn't really process our feedback and we not concerned about the cost. We hope they can go back to their quality roots for both food and service

Fantastic French food that just gets better with time. Pamela and her team run this small, romantic space and maintain high standards in everything. Tables are small and close together and that creates the real bistro atmosphere.

Had a lovely lunch yesterday with two friends. The seating is quite tight (welcome to Greenwich Village!) but the experience was wonderful. Agree with an earlier comment, the portion sizes are perfect, elegantly presented. Food was fresh. The chalk board displayed a short but tasty list of specials - including frogs legs and a nice striped bass. Service was excellent, friendly but not intrusive. And you can't beat the location. I will be back.
