What I'm looking for:

1. Great, french food.
2. Entrees up to 30-40 range.
3. Nice atmosphere. Should feel and look like a proper restaurant.

I'm checking menupages, but also would like to hear feedback from those who maybe been to a few of them and can compare.

Thanks

I recently discovered Cafe D'Alsace, on 88th and 2nd (UES). It's not 100% traditional French, it's Alstatian, which is the region that borders France and Germany, so it has a heavy German influence as well.

Everything I've ever eaten here has been great, as well as reasonably priced.

There's also Mon Petit Cafe in the low 60's on Lex - also very good.

Chez Josephine in the Theater District (W42nd) would be another restaurant to check.

Bobo on 10th Street in the West Village and La Petite Auberge on Lexington at 28th Street are two others that come to mind as being very good.

Nice Matin, 79th and Amsterdam. Reasonable prices for entrees ($15-30) and a very good wine selection.

At the time we looked at all the suggestions in this thread, La Petite Auberge was the closest one to where we were, so we went there... and loved it! The food was delicious, the atmosphere wonderful, the service was extremely courteous and incredibly fast, there were no pauses between our courses, and every dish was exactly what we expected from a French restaurant! We absolutely loved it, thank you so very much for your suggestion! I wish I could try out the other ones mentioned here, well, hopefully next time we're in New York...

Great! I am glad you enjoyed your selection. I have never had a bad experience at La Petite Auberge, myself.

Balthazar is a very popular one. I've been myself and think highly of it
