Very old, very French, and very good, Le Perigord is one of the city's last bastions of traditional French cookery, a once dominant genre now gone to seed. The standard savory dishes are notably well-done here, but the real glory of the place is the pasty cart, which is practically a mobile museum of classical French dessert-making. Go easy on the navarin of lamb. You're going to need room for your sweets.

Best Duck Ever!!! – My wife ordered the Warm Foie Gras and the Roasted Lobster, I did the Escargots and the Roasted Duck... my Goodness, the Duck!!! If it wasn't for the dessert, a Grand Marnier Soufle that was coming, I could've eaten the whole of the Duck, so I just ate half of it... Really exceptional, serious, authentic french...

We loved the food and the 86 Petrus for $800, a good value, never seen it less than $1200. Very charming and attentious staff, too.

A True Disappointment – My wife and I were recently in NYC for a four day Broadway experience. We had been to Le Perigord a few years ago and it was wonderful so the restaurant was to be our highlight. Well of the 5 evening meals that we had....this was truely the bottom!

The waiters were continually running to get things done...and still no service. The meal was improperly served.....Wellington was over cooked....dessert never came because after 2.5 hours we ran out of time. I would never recommend this restaruant. I sent them an e-mail after returning home and they did not have the courtesy to respond.

Above Average – went there for restaurant week.. the service was really really great. we were promptly seated and the waitsaff was very courteous. The food wasn't too impressive but above average. Overall, I will go back and try again maybe, their non-RW menu will be more exceptional.

Wonderful French Restaurant – A very good traditional french restaurant that tries to be conservative rather than to be with the "in" crowd. I love this restaurant for the reason of it keeping up with tradition. Oh, did I mention that the owner has a good sense of humor too? I think this is the best bang for the buck in terms of french cuisine.

Ambience – Where else can you go in New York that is comfortable, you get spectacular traditional French Haute Cuisine, you are treated like a king without pretense, and you pay $62 from soup to nuts. My favorite NY restaurant. Don't expect to see any tatoos and piercings here though. The crowd is "mature".

Fine Traditional Dining – We had a wonderful dinner here on February 21, 2004. The ambiance and staff are very welcoming and set the stage for a great evening. We enjoyed oysters and a fabulous artichoke soup. The entrees of filet mignon and duck breast were beautifully prepared and served. George, the owner, really makes you feel welcome here. The whole dining experience is first class and very refined. We can't wait to return

Outstanding – I ate at Le Perigord last week and was blown away. The host, Georges, did not only have a larger-than-life personality, but he attended to my every wish. If anyone is put off by his attentiveness, they need to get a life. The food was some of the best French food I have had in years. I recommend the roast duck and the vegetable tart, both menu staples for years, according to my new friend Georges. Wine selection was impressive, too.

Good Food, Dull Atmosphere – The food was exceptional here and the staff was very attentive, however the room was so dull that I thought I was going to fall asleep while I was there.
