Absolutely wonderful experience! Gourmet French food without all the butter. We had such an amazing experience - service was wonderful. Will return soon!
Papilles is a restaurant with an extremely small and narrow dining area. There are 10-two top tables that can be rearranged to accommodate larger parties. The restaurant's decor is rather plain which affects the ambiance; however, when it comes to food and service the restaurant scores 5-stars. The dinner is offered prix fixe with a choice of three, five or seven courses. No matter how many courses you select, the food is delicious. Each course is beautifully presented and the food is delicious. There were three servers that provided courteous and excellent service to all diners. I highly recommend Papilles to anyone looking for an upscale delicious dining experience.
This restaurant provided an experience just as if it were in France. Every bite of every course was perfection. The agnolotti was feather light and intensely flavored. The lamb chops could be cut with a fork. The strawberries were perfectly ripe. The selection of wines was well chosen.
The space is modern, minimal, and tiny - made for millennials - not a 70th b'day dinner. But the food and service won us over. Lovely meal.
The cocktail, pampolamousse, a terrific, subtle use of grapefruit juice. The five course dinner is worth every penny. The interweaving of flavors in each dish makes one realize French cuisine remains the gold standard for food. Served European style with time between the courses for conversation and relishing what you just ate. The wine pairing is worth the extra money. They were spot on for each dish.
Excellent. Tasting menu options provide good value and opportunity.
Quaint, excellent food, great service. Highly recommend this little gem of a restaurant.
Great service & attention to details
Creative, well presented & tasty food
A very good experience
One of the best restaurants in the country with an incredible focus on ingredients, service and creativity. We enjoyed the five course tasting menu and the leek tart was an excellent first course followed by tuna ribbons that were so fresh they had to be hours old. The fish and veal courses were light and flavorful and the desserts though limited were equally delicious.
This is a true jewel and we wish the owners great success
It’s a trendy little understated place serving light phenomenal well orchestrated both in flavor and presentation kind of modern French food.
It’s a Lilliput place with a Goliath superb flavor. I would rather eat here than the pretentious super expensive place. I will go back and definitely noted in my list of go to restaurant.
This restaurant is absolutely amazing and worthy of at least a Micheling star. From the cocktails to the cooking and the wine, no restaurant I went to so far beats the experience, especially at this price entry!! Thank you for yet another amazing evening Papilles!
Interesting cocktails, good wine. The food was fantastic. We did the five-course tasting menu and ordered cocktails and wine a la carte. Really overall one of the best meals we've had in the neighborhood in quite a while. Very attentive (but not hovering) service also. All around, a real gem.
Amazing! Food and service!
A shoestring ambiance in which excellent food is served at generous prices. Choices are limited but options change every few weeks. Vaux le voyage.
Creative food, wonderful service! Tiny but lovely.
Excellent food and service. Will definitely return for more!
Papilles est une excellente adresse que je conseille vivement. Un accueil chaleureux des plats très fins pour une excellente soirée. À refaire lors de notre prochaine visite
My boyfriend and I dined at Papilles for the first time on Saturday and opted for 4 course tasting menu. We had Leak(appetizer), Striped bass (main) and Lamb (main), followed by Clementine for dessert. Portions were not small for tasting menu. So, we took one of the desserts to go. We were very impressed with every dish. Each dish was beautifully presented, perfectly prepared and all ingredients tasted so fresh. We also loved the sauce that came with each dish. Chef is extremely talented. Cocktail was just as creative and equally beautifully presented and tasty. Service is efficient and friendly. We just made another reservation to go back in 4 weeks. Papilles definitely stays on our list of favorite restaurants and we cannot wait to go back.
Loved this place!
Can’t say enough good things about this place. We were four people celebrating one’s birthday. Everyone LOVE LOVE LOVED all the dishes.
Better than the food at Le Bernadin. Perfectly prepared. And no pretension. Service was SO friendly and relaxed. No attitude here.
Thank you Papilles for one of the best meals I’ve ever had. My tastebuds are so happy!
Please don’t ever change the way you do things there. You are a very special place. Perfect.
AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING! Everything was delicate, light, and savory. Another wonderful time and meal. They didn't disappoint yet again. Each and every visit, I've brought new friends and they've all been equally as wowed by the food as I've been. Can't say enough other than book a reservation stat and see for experience it for yourselves!
What a wonderful experience ! When papilles gets it’s three stars from the New York Times I hope they will save us a table. Ambiance is informal ; food and service anything but...looking forward to next visit
We had dinner here on New Year’s Eve and it was a great experience. Cozy atmosphere, excellent service and fantastic food full of surprises.
Terrific, charming little restaurant. From the amuse-bouche to the dessert, everything was beautifully prepared and graciously served. Good wines by the glass. The owners never hover but are always nearby — very French. Highly recommend it.
fantastic! every dish felt spiritual, that's how delicious everything was. well portioned, beautiful execution, great wine list, very friendly and thorough service without being brash or making you feel rushed. can't recommend enough!
Thank you very much.
What a neighborhood gem! WOW! Amazing food, great service and no pretense makes this a bistro I will definitely be returning to ASAP
