Had a lovely dinner with out of town friends. Restaurant has a warm ambiance and is quiet so you can actually talk to people. Had wonderful foie gras and lobster and duck. Small nit is that they have no gluten free bread available. Restaurant is expensive but food is great and service was perfect. Attentive but not rushed.

Tocqueville has been a consistent favorite of mine over the last five years. The main dining room is lovely, and the calm atmosphere makes it a great place to go with friends or business associates. The food is delicious and beautifully presented beginning with an amuse bouche and ending with a lovely little plate of sweets. (My all time favorite menu item is the California Sea Urchin and Angel Hair Carbonara).The staff there pleasant and attentive but not overbearing, starting with the "manager/wine steward", Fatima, down to the young man serving the delicious bread options.
For a more "casual" dinner, I have regularly eaten dinner in the bar area and that is delightful as well. Luckily this restaurant has become a neighborhood restaurant for me and my family and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Service was wonderful and some of the food was outstanding but some was just ok and for the price all the food should have been a taste sensation!

Celebrating Valentines day on February 15th, my best move ever! We had a chance to order their famous chef's tasting menu with unique wine pairings. The service was superb, drinks the best I had in a while. New Fashion is the must to try!
Great place for special occasion, or quick dinner at the bar ( YES, they serve special menu at the bar plus a la carte) !

One of the best dining experiences we've ever had. First, the service was impeccable. We had the 6 course tasting menu, and one of us had the wine pairing. Every dish was creatively prepared and each dish tasted terrific. There wasn't one dish that we didn't rave about. We will certainly be back.

Great Valentines dinner!
We asked for table upstairs in their lovely mezzanine skybox as it was more intimate and Romantic- perfect for the occasion! Gnocchi with black truffles were To die for and filet mignon, best I ever had. My wife who loves to learn about wine couldn’t stop talking to lady som. I guess we kept her too long at our table;) (sorry not sorry!) . Service was great, bravo to Adrian and Dolores, they made our night very special!

One of the finest dining experiences I’ve ever had. I’m not a fan of eating out on Valentine’s Day, in fact I was dreading it. My girlfriend insisted on doing something special this year, and my dad highly recommended Tocqueville and insisted it would be perfect for the occasion. And well...He was spot on! Our table was ready upon arrival (which I have never experienced dining out on Valentine’s Day). I wasn’t thrilled about having a prix fixe menu, but every dish we ordered was outstanding and beautifully presented. Staff not only accommodated all of my girlfriends crazy allergies, but they did it graciously - which was truly appreciated on such a busy night. The tables were a little close together, but to be expected on the busiest eating out Hallmark holiday. I would highly recommend for a special occasion and will definitely be back

This was the worst meal I have had in NYC in 2 years. They were so underwhelming for Valentine’s Day it wasn’t funny. People always say, “don’t go out for Valentines” day but we thought that with a restaurant of this reputation it wouldn’t be an issue. We were crammed in like sardines, spoken down to by a jerk “somm” serving junk wine in Home Goods glasses. Thanks for finishing the meal with stale macaroons - great touch. Should have gone to Le CouCou or somewhere similar that is reliable for such a special occasion. I’d say beware, but this place will be closed by next Valentine’s Day.

I wanted to take my mom to a special dinner on her short visit to NYC. From the moment we walked in the door we were treated like family. Everyone from our waiter, who had an incredible knowledge of the menu, to the manager, made sure everything was perfectly to our liking. What set our experience over the top was the sommelier, Bruno. He took the time to explain each wine we were drinking and how it related to the dish. We started with a glass of champagne while we decided on our courses. We wanted to try different wine with each course and having this mini master class was truly special. It made the whole night so unique and a true experience. We had the beet salad, the squash soup (my favorite), the butter poached lobster and the sea trout. Every dish was amazing and beautifully presented. This is a must try and a hidden gem.

Tocqueville did a renovation over the summer. Don't worry. It is spruced up but not changed. The atmosphere is quiet and luxurious. The food is outstanding. The service is attentive. Be warned. It is expensive...but worth the price.
