Perfect service in a perfectly elegant, calm, cheerful, gorgeous room (we ate downstairs). Attentive servers were never overbearing and never made our party of four feel rushed; the prix-fixe menu was $104 per person, expensive but not at all unreasonable, and the wines were expensive but not absurdly so. We celebrated a friend's birthday and anniversary and felt as if we'd chosen precisely the right venue. I hope to go back soon. We were welcomed despite being new-comers and by the time we left, we felt were were at home. Perfect. Fois Gras, beef, lamb, sweetbreads--and the souffles, however cliched, were certainly the best dessert on the list.

Returning to La Grenouille for an anniversary dinner after several years, I found everything as I had left it, especially the magnificent floral arrangements that provided splashes of color to the glowing, sophisticated ambiance. Ladies and gentlemen, young and old, almost all appropriately dressed, were engaging in dignified conversation. And, of course, the attentive and interested waitstaff made the food preparations more interesting and enjoyable. La Grenouille is a treasure, and I wish it many more years of outstanding service to Mid-town Manhattan.

Five decades of grace and elegance and still this beautiful restaurant still feels fresh, possibly because of the spectacular flowers and soft glow, but certainly because the wait staff and Maitre d' whose careful attentions feel personal and sincere. I wish they could train the rest of America's wait staff. It was a splendid visit.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. The food was outstanding. The restaurant itself was absolutely picturesque. The lighting, flowers and decor were something out of a movie. The service was top-notch. We had one of the best meals we ever had. Be prepared to spend some serious money, but it's worth it especially for a special occasion.
