Love the ambience. I feel transported to Provence. Wonderful food. The loup de mer is heavenly. Great wine list and very good service.

Great place to meet up with friends for Sunday brunch. Had the polenta. Huge portion. Got side of string beans which was delicious. Kid friendly (another table also had a child).

I was in Harlem, felt like I was in Harlem. Yet, the mood was French.

Had a wonderful dinner with a good friend here! Great atmosphere and a great Rośe happy hour - but think of it as a classier happy hour.

Only criticism I would have was our main course dishes were slow to arrive and it got a bit warm in the space on a muggy-humid day in NYC.

Great value on the menu overall - the food was daaalissh!

Will be returning and recommending to friends who live in our area and to people looking to explore the fantastic neighborhood of Fredrick Douglas Blvd. and Central Park West.

Relaxed Brunch atmosphere. If you're in a hurry then be sure to let your server know; otherwise, enjoy the time they give you to relax and talk with friends as you survey the menu, make your decision and wait for your delicious meal to be graciously served. It was a breezy summer Saturday, with windows open, music playing (not too loud) and time to kick back.

Food was good and ambience was nice-particularly because the weather was beautiful and the windows were open to the outside seating area. Only problem was the limited menu for brunch-although the options my friend and I picked were delicious.

My son got sick from the food. Unacceptable! For this price level, the quality should be checked carefully. Not the case obviously.

The food is good, but overpriced. The service is absurdly slow, rude and inattentive.

Took mom there for Mother’s Day off of a recommendation from a friend. The food and service were both excellent. The great thing about RDV’s bottomless deal is that it’s 90 minutes from when you get there.. not just until brunch ends. So as long as you arrive before brunch ends.. you can enjoy your bottomless for 90 minutes. I definitely recommend giving them a try.

Our meals were superior and truly reminiscent of quality dining in France. The chicken is absolutely worth the twenty minutes, the duck and dorade equally delicious. Wines by the glass were quite good and our waiter was skilled, friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

This is my go to restaurant. It never fails. It's perfect. It's always delicious, the vibe is friendly and welcoming, it's never disappointing. The chef/owner is committed to local fresh ingredients. He is adventurous without being wild. Drinks are great too. There is attention to detail and beauty. Everyone I've taken here, which now includes almost all of my friends, has been equally smitten. Highly recommend!

The food and service were outstanding! The best tuna tartare and dorado I have ever had and I am frequent ordered of both all over the city! My husband and I ventured from the Upper East Side as we had seen RDV on tv with the chef being interviewed. Immediately we were intrigued and gave it a shot and it was by far one of our most favorite meals in NYC. My husband had the all you can eat mussels and fries which were excellent and offered the night we were there. Highly, highly recommend for anyone who loves French food and wants a great atmosphere with a real deal chef. The vibe inside was also great. GO!!!

We visited RDV for the fourth time and again we were impressed and delighted. The food is always delicious with small inventive touches that make each dish special. The service is professional and knowledgeable as well as friendly and fun. Great wine list with selections both classic as well as less known choices. I highly recommend this wonderful neighborhood restaurant.

Let me tell you all something. There are very few places in the world that are able to provide great food, service, and make you feel like family at a price point that RDV does. Their Mussel-Mania and Half Off Wine Bottles on Wednesday has to be one of the best deals in the city. This place is an absolute must
