"You will think you are in Paris in this cozy neighborhood bistro. Typical French menu, good wines, courteous and friendly service. The duck was superb, excellent bread and charcuterie and save room for the Poire Helene! Great night out with family and friends. Went back the next day for solo lunch :)"

"Warm welcome and excellent service. Waitress changed our wine without hesitation because it was off. Rabbit was skin and bones and should not have been on the menu. Music too loud for pleasant conversation."

"Had to be in NYC on New Years Eve and was able to bring a friend, so booked a table here (it serves food until 5am.) Tabe was ready when we arrived, a comfortable number of diners, some leaving, others arriving .. . Kir Royales whilst we perused the menu (there was set New Years Eve Menu as well) I had the Soupe a L'Oignon to start, excellent, followed by the Entrecote with Peppercorn sauce, delicious and good steark, my friend started with the Steak Tartare and declared the best ever, followed by the Bouillabaise, which was also excellent, loads of fish and massive king prawns. The wine list is very good, especially if you like French wines, good selection available by the glass as well, but we settled on a good bottle of Fleurie.
Just before Midnight the staff handed out free part hats, horns, rattles etc and a free glass of bubbles for everyone, a lovely touch, at midnight the atmosphere was lovely, everyone greeting one another, we even ended up dancing.
This place is I think more a locals place, just very glad a friendly local shared the secret a few years back, when I'm in NY, always try and get here.

"Went with my girlfriend on New Year's Eve and ordered way too much delicious food. The pate was very filling, and the blue cheese in the endives salad made it probably too rich a start, but I was still able to enjoy a well cooked steak with double dipped frites. Very yummy. GF had the duck leg, which was juicy and fell off the bone. We bid farewell to 2015 with profiteroles and sweet chocolate mousse. Both of which are not to be missed."

"Only complaint I have s that they charge you for an ice tea refill. Had brunch on Sunday and declined the Kir Royale and asked for an ice tea instead. When I asked for a refill on the ice tea they said there would be a charge for a refill when I asked. I shy away from restaurants who do this--really a bit cheap with an expensive meal."

"I ate here while visiting family in mid town over the holiday. It was warm and they had the window walls open giving it a street side feeling for even table. I started with escargot and had the lamb entree. Both were very good as was the wine selection. Service was friendly and efficient as well. Reasonably priced by NYC standards. Recommended."

"We discovered Le Bateau Ivre on our last trip to NYC and decided to head back again for a late dinner. The appetizers, the Pate de champagne and the salade des betteraves, were very tasty and well presented. The main, the steak et frites and the dock confit, as previously did not disappoint in the slightest. Having been in France recently, the duck confit is the best this side of France that I think I have had. The skin cooked to perfection as well. The wine list has many gems that won't break the bank. Our next trip back, we'll be back for sure!"

"This place has been my late night wine spot for ages now. I hope this waiter won't stay long. Because if I have him again, I will stop coming. Rude, slow."

"After seven visits and three reviews, Bateau Ivre remains my favorite in NY for the traditional French bistro menu. The poulet roti and the pate de compagne were outstanding recent choices. And don't miss the steak frites.
