La Ripaille

Opened in 1980, La Ripaille is one of the oldest restaurants in West Village. Some of the regulars have been coming for as long as 25 years. We want everyone to feel welcome here, whether it’s the celebrities who frequent, the children for whom we provide games & crayons, or the people who live in the Village. The owner, Alain Laurent, is integral in the day-to-day processes of La Ripaille. He daily scours the market for the freshest produce, often choosing the day’s specials based on his finds. This keeps the specials seasonal & unique. He decorates the ever changing wine list with the best wines available. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with a terrace for the summer & a fireplace in the back for the winter. The candlelit tables light up French posters and paintings & fresh flowers decorate each table. For a taste of history and delicious French cuisine, visit La Ripaille. We have a seat just for you.

"I came to this beautiful restaurant with my friend, we were looking for something new and refreshing from our average New York City spots. From the moment we walked in until the moment we left we were treated like french royalty and it made the experience one to remember. The head server and runner were fabulous and they never missed a beat, before i asked for something they brought it without me opening my mouth. Now lets talk about the food. I am lactose intolerant and it is very hard for me to find any food in NYC that caters to my problem. The head server went out of his way to make sure my needs were meet. I had the Filet of Bass with Champagne and rosemary, impeccable!!!!! the flavor and texture just came together like a dream and fulfilled my hunger. I finished with Strawberry Sorbet and I can not describe how amazing it was, honestly the best in NYC, and i am very picky about my sorbet. IF you are lactose intolerant you will not have a problem finding delicious selections from the menu. THIS PLACE WAS A DREAM!!!!"

"For traditional French bistro style cooking, this is good choice. Small space, but quiet enough for conversation. Service is attentive and very helpful. Lunch menu offers some interesting omelettes which drew us to the dinner hour. Enough vegetarian options to satisfy non-carnivores. Mid-range prices, but the wine hits $12-14 a glass which was on the high side for us. We would return to this West Village stand by in a heartbeat."

"Wonderful authentic French cuisine, elegantly served in a French country atmosphere. Starting with the appetizers, the Feuillette de Champignons Sauvages a la Creme de Cognac was amazing and my husband assured me that the pate de campagne was equally so. The deliciousness continued from there through the entire meal. The special dessert was a tarte au citron from the owner's grandmother's recipe - perfection! The staff was attentive without being overbearing, and the owner was a convivial host. A wonderful evening!"

"The waiter and Maitre D' made our 30th anniversary lunch very special.
They brought a tall candle to our table and gave us extra attention.
The atmosphere was inviting and the food was good. The Maitre D' was dressed in a
casual T-shirt so it was also very relaxed.

"My wife and I went to La Ripaille the night before Thanksgiving. The place was pretty empty, as you might suspect. The food was pretty good. The bread came out of the kitchen and was completely stale. My guess is that it was cut earlier in the day and left out. Service was either over attentive or hard to find. Beware that the house wine is expensive. You should ask the price before you ask for more glasses. Probably better to order a bottle. Overall, a pretty good experience, though I'm not rushing back."

"Welcoming and attentive staff. Good choice of French dishes with some house specials. French music keeps the atmosphere A la Française!
When we went for dinner it was not crowded and the service was great. Food was tasty; without wine you can expect the bill to be about $55/person. French candlelight atmosphere for certain. Worth going.

"Neighbors recommended this lovely, unassuming spot as their favorite restaurant. We were greeted warmly and made to feel like family and special guests at the same time. Our wait staff was attentive without being intrusive, and the owner was ebullient and quite helpful. I had the sea bass and my friend had chicken for our entrees. Each of us kept making sounds of delight as each bite landed on our tongues. The fish was cooked to perfection and just melted in my mouth, along with the buttery veloute sauce. We shared the Salade Composee facon Paysanne as an appetizer - which I had considered as my entree at one point before ordering. For desert, we had the Lemon tart which was not too sweet, not too tart. It was just right! We did not feel rushed - and felt like we'd just found a gem tucked away in Montmartre. (I wasn't drinking since I was on antibiotics, but I thought the wine list looked good and will likely imbibe next time. And there WILL be a next time!) Prices were good, decent portions. A lovely evening. Thank you!"
