We had our dinner club at Le Prive. I chose French to start the new year and it was a big hit! Lovely restaurant and staff. We were a party of 6 and it was quiet when we arrived for 7pm reservations. Seems more diners show up for 8pm. Our waiter was so nice and helpful with the menu as we have a new vegan and a vegetarian in the group.

Everyone loved their food. I had the Griot, braised and fried pork, grilled asparagus, pickled onions. Yummy. I could definitely have had a second serving it was so delicious. I tried my friend's roasted brussels sprouts with bacon. Absolutely delicious!

Definitely a winner and I can't wait to come back.

Great food; good wines choices albeit a bit pricey per glass; servers are engaging and energetic; not much for decor but the focus on great food and service was spot on! Will definitely recommend and refer others to dine there.

atmosfera fasulla e fintamente francese; presentazione dei piatti grossolana e cibo di pessima qualità; locale sporco e poco accogliente.

Excellent classic French bistro fare in a lovely, chic and friendly atmosphere. Staff look great and everyone is gracious and accommodating. Everything is made in house, including condiments, and is delicious!

Leuk restaurant, vriendelijke bediening. Behoorlijk prijzig. Voor 2 Hamburgers, 1 dessert en 1 fles water ben je ongeveer 85 dollar kwijt. Verder ok.

Where to begin, the hostess/seater didn't have a clue. We entered an almost empty restaurant and were taken to the smallest table we have ever seen in a restaurant, we said that we would prefer a larger table ie: a two top. She started to bring us to the rear of the restaurant to a larger(average size) table and said it was goiing to be noisy, we said we didn't mind ,then she said they were all reserved and seated us at an 22 inch round table that rocked and was uneven. We had to remove the candle, bottled water and bread basket to accommodate our water glasses, wine glasses, bread plates which we also had to remove to accommodate our dinner plates when they arrived. This is a french restaurant and the bread was so ordinary, have had better franch bread at diners.
The wait staff were friendly and professional and fixed the wobbly table.
The meal was better than average and we enjoyed it.
During our time there other couples arrived and we seated at realistic size two tops.
The meal was overpriced and unfortunately what started out to be a restaurant and meal that we were looking forward to didn't come anywhere near what it should and could have been.
Perhaps the hostess should be retrained and the cocktail table should be removed to a bar area.

A hidden gem! We had an amazing experience from start to finish. Our server Geoffrey was on point with his food and wine suggestions. We started with escargot as an appetizer; definitely would suggest asking for extra bread for dipping into the sauce. My husband said his chicken entree was perfect and the moules frites was melted in my mouth. We finished of with a hearty, dense chocolate mousse to share and a glass of champagne. Can’t wait to go back !!

We are a French/American family and this is good French Food without the attitude some of the French restaurants in NYC have. Very easy decision for us for the future. Le Prive will be our go to restaurant for family outings and business meetings from now on. Service was impeccable and attentive without being overwhelming, all of our dishes were cooked perfectly, warm and very tasty. The music was audible but not bothersome, and the tables were far enough from each other that we could not hear other dinners, or they could not hear us. The decor is unpretentious, clean and comfortable. We will definitely be back.

Arrived early & didn’t want to wait outside for my husband we were celebrating our anniversary, but I was seated comfortably waited about 5 minutes. First thing husband said, “what a cozy place.” Wine, Appetizer, Entree, Desert & Espresso were amazing. As usual we kept trying each other’s food. Even the music was so suitable for the restaurant. They accommodated our wishes for romantic seating. Lastly, on the house, they gave us two glasses of champagne. We said we will definitely return! Le Privé gave us beautiful service as well! Merci!

I was disappointed this time after being completely wowed before. Lots of staff (mostly hanging around at the end of the bar) and none paying much attention to the customers. We sent a drink back that was not made as ordered and there was no sense of urgency to replace it; we had to ask for more bread twice before getting it. The restaurant was not very busy so my expectations were sadly not met.

Excellent restaurant français ! Tout y est bien exceptées les terrasses sur la rue et cour pas assez verdoyantes et protégées par des bacs et des parasols (pour la cour), sinon la carte est variée, tout est bon, et les vins sublimes!
Équipe jeune et souriante, excellente ambiance de jour comme le soir, je recommande chaudement surtout que les prix sont très raisonnables pour New York...

Service at the bar was good, but not enough usable tables to accommodate everyone with a reservation. We gave up our tiny table, which was tucked away in an alcove next to the kitchen, in favor of sitting at the bar. Food was mediocre all around, lacking in depth and mostly bland. Not going back.

Interesting restaurant with classic French (American) menu. Food is good but uninspired. Wine selections weak. Good service. Needs work but has potential.

Wow. After a so so first experience, the restaurant invited us back to give them another chance. We were really blown away. The food was fantastic, the staff were super friendly and attentive and manager Matt personally came by our table several times to check in on us. It is very rare for a restaurant to show this level of commitment to their patrons, but We will definitely become regulars at this establishment
