Found this little NYC gem by happy accident. We were hoteling in the neighborhood and tried several times to stop in for afternoon drinks and after theatre nightcap with no success. Booked a last minute dinner reservation and had the best meal of our trip in NYC. Charming atmosphere and service in a quaint venue. Excellent food and drink and by the end of the night felt like part of the family. Something for everyone.

Courteous and timely waitstaff. Food was very good except for the Cordon Bleu, which was a little dry. Had been flambayed which made it less moist but still had a good taste. Also pommes frites were limp and oily. Still would recommend it to friends as have had great meals there in the past. Wonderful atmosphere and staff.

Delightful old fashioned French bistro restaurant. The menu is predictable (French onion soup, anyone?) but I have no complaints! The food is delicious. Very friendly service.

A typical tiny restaurant, loud and tight seating. French but not so much. Ordered the Mussels, could not eat the first order. Got another and much better, the frites then second time were undercooked. They brought us free dessert after we had already ordered one! Gracious but not very observant. Then they bring everyone a Sangria at the very end as you are leaving which was delicious but wasted on most people we observed. They are trying hard but I will not go back sorry to say.

While the food was tasty and internal decor is pretty, we seemed invisible to the wait staff. Service was disappointingly slow and we had to chase down our food.

A great little authentic French bistro in Hell’s Kitchen. We we’re seated by the front window which is drafty and uncomfortably cool on a cold night. Reasonably-priced menu and wine selections. We split the assorted cheese and pate appetizers which were very good. My spouse had the crab cake appetizer as an entree, which was thin and over cooked; I had the calf’s liver and frites which was perfectly prepared. Cappuccino was the perfect dessert. Will try again and ask to be seated in the back next time. Merci.

Excellent choice of meals which were delicious. Good service and convenient location. I enjoyed the salmon, mashed potatoes and plentiful serving of mixed vegetables. Good cocktail: lillet fizz.

This is a very nice little restaurant and the food and ambiance is great. The staff are friendly and very nice but you have to be patient as there is not a lot of room or many servers.
You should go here when in midtown for a show.

We have been here 3-4 times before and always had a satisfying meal. This time we both ordered the hangar steak and it was mediocre. The meat was somewhat tough and stringy and didn’t have any flavor. We will still go back because the food is generally quite good , but definitely won’t order the hangar steak.

This old French bistro in the theater district has lost its edge. Cheap eats... You get what you pay for... Might consider other options if you desire an engaging menu with innovation .

This was a lovely French Bistro restaurant located in the theater district with great food and ambiance. The escargot was excellent shells removed with plenty of goodness to dip your bread in to. The bouillabaisse was also excellent with a tasty broth and plenty of shellfish including half a lobster. I will return on the bouillabaisse alone! I have been to Paris several times and I must say I was quite impressed by Tout Va Bien and will be back.

Very authentic food. I had Beef Bourguignon stew, 2 glasses of wine & cafe au lait. My husband had 1 glass of wine, foie gras pate, a Croque Madame & espresso. The $12 glasses of wine were good and a decent size. The food was great. My husband especially liked the foie gras pate. The bill was $133 with tax and (most likely a 20% tip). The front room is cozy. I don't care for the back room as much, not enough charm. Late at night the bar is filled with French people. It's close to theatres and you go down a few steps to enter. Out front (down those 2-3 steps) is outside seating of 2-3 tables). Just a lovely convenient place with good service.

Hostess was pleasant and efficient. Got to say there was only 2 tables yo attend on a Tuesday 3 pm. Prices are very reasonable. From there down hill: place is very old and need a very good refurbish. Food was also mediocre except for the steak tartare that my spouse had. Not worth going out of your way.

We enjoy going to Tout Va Bien before theatre, however we were there with a group of friends and the service was just fair. Water was not refilled and the dessert we ordered was substituted without letting us know. The food was great but the overall experience was just OK
