    Iim moving to Paris.. Yes and I was excited to have a little dinner with close friends before departing and discovered Lafayette. I wanted to host a dinner but as always hesitant of overly packed restaurants and bad service. A friend suggested Lafayette as it was also french inspired and perfect for my trip. From the minute I arrived the bartender shared with me his favorite wine, and really made us feel special while we waited for all the guests to arrive. Our meal was incredible, and our server was helpful in getting us a little more familiar with the dishes. OVERALL this place was sexy, cool, and perfect for a group. It was very NYC with a french decor, but most importantly welcoming, and eager to please its customers. I cant wait to keep coming back when I return to NYC but till then au revoir.

    We had brunch here on Sunday. Food and Bloody Mary's were great. I am still amazed that anyone could actually finish the French Toast or the Croque Madame both were huge, though I am used to UK sizes. There was a nice relaxed atmosphere even though the place was pretty much full. Also managed to spot a Hollywood film celebrity eating two tables away.

    We booked a table here because they had beef tartare on the menu; my absolutely favourite dish. It was fine, about 6.5/10 on my scale. No discernible capers or shallots in the mix and it was under-seasoned but the accompanying pickled celery lifted the dish very well indeed. At least I got the raw (quail's) egg yolk on top. We visited at lunch time and the restaurant was very busy, the staff we mostly very professional.

    We were dehydrated and hungry after touring the Merchant House Museum, and one of the docents suggested Lafayette would be a nice place to get a glass of wine. She gave us great advice. The sidewalk cafe was pleasant and terrific for people watching. Cold water and a nice crusty bread we're quickly offered, the wine list was good and our cheese plate came with some delicious stewed fruits. We greatly enjoyed our late afternoon stop at Lafayette.

    We went here thinking the pastries were going to be unreal, and I was a bit disappointed. I ordered the Danish du jour and it was not my idea of a Danish (perhaps I am wrong, perhaps it was a French style Danish?) Anyway it was a hard pastry with raisins in it - no fruit filling, no icing, 100% let down. Especially for $7 or however much it was. But on the flip side the granola/yogurt/berries was delicious! My partner ordered eggs benny and left feeling hungry. The espresso and the americanos were pretty good though. The restaurant itself is beautiful, but the staff not entirely friendly. One last thing - there was something pink smeared on my espresso spoon, lipstick? It came off when I wiped it on the paper table cover. Safe to say I did not use the spoon.

    Stopped for our American breakfast experience - lovely pancakes (although only just enough maple syrup for all the pancakes, they're huge!), bacon/eggs, granola/yoghurt/fruit - each were lovely, as were the juices. Lots of coffee, attentive staff, set us up for a day of sightseeing, and the building is awesome. Be aware that it is an expensive breakfast for the whole family, and perhaps a bit formal, looks like a place often used for breakfast meetings .

    Lunched there recently with an old friend who is a great chef and tough critic. We both selected from the restaurant week menu and were delighted with what we were served. my friend and lamb merguez with raita and lentils -- large for an appetizer and delicious. Her pasta main was underwhelming but satisfying. I had a brilliant melon gazpacho, served appealingly in a little milk bottle, followed by phenomenal charred bluefish on a salty bed of romesco sauce. Desserts: profiterole and stone fruit crumble. a perfect summer meal in a gorgeous high ceilinged place, with stunning afternoon lighting.

    My son and I stopped by Lafayette prior to catching the late "Blue Man Group" show. The food and service were both spot on. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and people watching in Noho as well.

    Went to Lafayette for a 7-30pm dinner seating. Very pleasant greeting from the hostess who gave me the choice to wait for my party at the bar or directly at the table (does not happen often these days.) Great zinc bar with a good choice of wines by the glass. Dinner was even better than expected. Friendly and knowledgeable waiting staff. All our dishes were excellent. From the roasted beet salad, to the skirt steak and skate fish. Love their desserts too. We went for the "ile flottante" which was well prepared; a little more of custard to go with it would have made it perfect. Will go back. Their terrace is a plus too.

    I have to say over all the menu and service was mediocre at best . While it was a brassiere the menu was limited . The rotisserie items were on the menu and the items were on there meaning they were sitting for a while . Service was not up to par as well . The meal was ok but not worth the price tag

    We have been there late for lunch, the restaurang is very spacious and well designed. They offer french like cuisine and the menue has a lot of good offers. The deserts are home made and very good as well. Best was the perfect service we enjoyed in a very relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely come back again.

    Went with another couple for a mixed business/friendly dinner. My wife had the escargot appetizer and described it as very good. Beautifully cooked with sufficient garlic. It needed a pinch of salt to brighten it. She had the skate for her main and it was superb. Perfectly cooked, crispy and the cauliflower that went with it was colorful and amazing. I had the French onion soup that had beef shank in it. I really enjoyed it, although I am not sure the beef added anything. The cheese was excellent. The steak frites was also excellent, although the steak was on the small size. The fries were really crispy and abundant. Sommelier recorded some good wines for the group and the service was quite attentive. The server, however, seemed to have a bit of a memory problem but in the end everyone received what they ordered. On the downside, the tables were a bit close together and they do a big deal for birthdays. They bring out a fake cake with a sparkler out the top. It must have been a big birthday night. Overall, though, a really enjoyable night with good food. We will be back.

    This NoHo spot established itself as a brunch mecca the moment it opened so I heard, but you can also get this take on the Parisian weekend on a New York Wednesday morning. Sink into a leather banquettes beneath tall light-filled windows and order the quiche du jour, which was to die for or order the lemon pancakes with fruit, the farm eggs with pommes de rôtisserie, and this is ffing crazy, the oatmeal topped with cognac stewed fruit. It’s all of the brunch experience without the brunch insanity.

    There’s an inviting outdoor seating area with a bounty of plants and umbrellas for shade. I had the item on the menu called 'Gem lettuce salad w/ avocado and manchego', but it ought to be clarified that by avocado they mean 2 slices (I counted) and by manchego they mean dusted with grated cheese. It was $17. Re-word the title of this dish please. Leave out ‘gem’ for starters. The Goat cheese ravioli w/ English peas, mint and bacon was very good, but not worth the $26 sticker. The bakery on the premises provide very good whole wheat sourdough. I expected good wine here. We tried a few. Meh! It was uninspiring. Our waiter grabbed the plates before we were done.

    Bright large airy restaurant but food was mediocre. French onion soup too much cheese, flat iron steak with roquefort too salty. Skare in breadcrumbs was unpleasant. Would not go again.

    After eating a delicious croissant, there was only one reason for going to Lafayette...the pancakes. A must to have for breakfast, the lemon flavour adds another layer to these light and fluffy creations !! The coffee could be better, not that flavoursome.

    Good NYC vibe. Sat outside and got to see the FDNY pull out of the station house several times. The food was pretty good but not great. Service was OK. They dribbled red wine on my white shirt and comped us a bottle. We also ordered coffee and it never came. With so many options in NY it's just hard to say I would go back to Lafayette.

    Have gone here many times for brunch and it is great with awesome choices. So, I was a bit disappointed with the dinner choices and finally ended with a pasta dish which was not really that great. Good service though and sitting outside was as always a treat.

    Ambience was very nice. The onion soup was perfection in a bowl. However for $44 the dry aged steak should not have been so chewy. The French fries arrived cool. The wine selection was very good. We manage to have a grand cru that was reasonably priced. The moules frites was good but you expect a little more from a French Bistro. Not sure if I would go back for dinner but I would definitely try it for breakfast or lunch.
