Tuna Tartare Japonais
Wasabi miso dressing, crispy tempura
Steak Tartare La Goulue
Capers, cornichons, fresh herbs, egg yolks, condiments
Food and service were up to par. Outdoor ambiance off. Looking forward to a return to indoor service.
This is always a great choice for the Upper East Side. Unfortunately they were out of the cheese soufflé as well as the foie gras. But everything was yummy. ParticuLarly like the Steak au Poivre
Love going there. Food is excellent
Great to go to an old favorite
Still wonderful food and wine and staff
I had another wonderful meal at my favorite restaurant! So happy to be able to return.
Ambiance and service was outstanding, unfortunately we had high expectations for food which weren’t met - French onion soup was slightly bland, and mussels were overcooked.
Food was very good. Main course duck with apricots was outstanding. Only the escargots were only ok. Staff was very pleasant. Wine list was very nice. Planning to return very soon.
Had the oysters and they were amazing. Excellent food and value of the wine.
Excellent service. Well done outdoor seating. Yummy fresh oysters.
Very nice outdoor dining set up. Totally Covid compliant.
Lovely and delicious!
The street is very noisy
Despite needing to be outdoors, an outstanding evening as always. Super wine recommendation from our waiter and food superlative.
The noisy, smelly trash trucks rolling by provide the ambiance. The waitress, condescendingly referring to my 19 year old daughter as “princess,” forgot our entire first course. Our first course ending up being our entrees. So much for French Service! We skipped dessert so as not to be insulted by our waitress again and out of fear she might forget to serve it. AVOID.
This is a lovely place to eat and relax. The food is delicious, and the service is amazing. It has become a new favourite place for a guaranteed perfect night out.
Outstanding as usual. Food was superb, especially the steak and fish. Service was attentive and friendly. One of my favorite spots. Highly recommend.
Excellent neighborhood gem (food, service, experience). So glad we found it; will definitely be back!
very nice restaurant with fantastic food and drinks
We love La Goulue! The service is always superb and the food is excellent. No matter how many times I have been I always find the staff smiling and helpful and the food delicious.
Chef is great!
Due to pandemic it is outdoor sitting only, so our table was somewhat less comfortable when one would desire, but it was very quiet.
The service was excellent as was the food(we had onion soup, tuna tartare, duck breast and tartar steak).
The desert - tarte tatin - was good but not as good as entrees.
Overall it was very good experience and we would be back.
Great second experience at La Goulue. The outdoor seating was very nice, service was attentive, and the food was delicious.
Steak ordered was clearly incorrectly cooked and a new one was brought but only after my dining companion completely finished their meal. Nothing was compensated on final bill and the manager asked me in a leading way: "that one (the steak) is better, right?"
Decide for yourself if that's professional and fair.
What a treasure.
This place is BACK and rocks the house. Uber-chic and a mega-oasis amidst this untenable situation in NYC.
Great food and good atmosphere. COVID-service. Meaning not their best staff because best staff quarantining at home. But would definitely go again. Parking literally right next door which is key for any restaurant in the East 60s.
Great food and great service!
While the menu for outdoor dining is not as broad as their indoor menu, it still offers a lot of choices, among them the steak tartare which was delicious. Not as good as the old Four Seasons but better than Bilboquet. The only negative from an otherwise delicious dinner was the Floating Island, which was just to rich and dense by half.
Came here for a late Sunday lunch. Excellent service. Delicious and fresh Branzino. Excellent frites. Great experience overall, would recommend to anyone.
A very nice job considering that only outdoor seating is allowed right now. The food was very good - good enough to go back. We had a very pleasant experience.
Everyone was lovely, it felt very safe. Food was excellent. My only complaint was that our table was in a puddle of water so it would be nice if they put some Astro-turf down to make it feel a bit drier and cleaner. Fans would be great too to keep the air moving on a hot day as well as help blow coronavirus away.
It was so good to be back! Lovely outside socially-distanced lunch and the staff feel like old friends. Something nice and normal in the face of this world. Thank you!
Of course the food was delicious-cheese soufflé and beef tartare!
Finally! My first dinner out in NYC since mid-March. My friend Sonja and I had a wonderful dinner. Mussels, French fries, a cheese soufflé, La Goulue's famous green beans, all delicious! The outdoor seating under the canopy was perfect. There was a light rainstorm but we stayed dry and comfortable under the awning.
Had a great time there. The service was incredible. Very nice and friendly staff. Amazing food!
I was a big fan of La Goulou before it had to shut down due to the virus. So I was thrilled when it started offering outdoor table service. However, the experience is disappointing. The food is mediocre, and they do try to hustle you to vacate your table. Don't order the lobster salad. There's practically no lobster in it and it came with squares of cheddar cheese in it. Yikes!
Decent attempt o utilize side walk seating at first phase of pandemic, however the dumpster clearing out a building across the street (while clearly not the fault of the restaurant) made or a constant loud din of garbage collection.
The lobster salad was uninspired and the frites average.
Excellent as always
We had great service . Food was delicious . Especially the salad. I love the chicken salad.
