Food was amazing and quiet big for the value , definitely would go back
Good experience. Food was great. I had the Mahi Mahi sandwich which was amazing. Definitely worth another visit to try other dishes.
Awesome experience all around! Food and service was fantastic. Great ambiance.
Classic NY restaurant with a beautiful interior. Where else can you get fat juicy little neck clams with shoestring fries? Mixed drinks are really tasty and very strong.
Nice restaurant in an often overlooked part of the city by tourists. If you find yourself near the Pier 16 area, check out the Paris Café. It's a warm, friendly, casual environment with some great seafood options and a nice bar area.
We really enjoyed our dinner at The Paris Cafe.. The Tuna and Burgers that we had were perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious..
Good food, good service, great craft beers, perfect place for a small group to get together for reasonable price dinner with kids, before going on a walk at the South Street Seaport.
Here were the noteworthy negative experiences:
- We ordered calamari and two burgers. Calamari never came. Calamari was on the bill so it wasn't the waitresses fault
- The burgers didn't taste like anything. When you use poor produce, you cannot create something delicious. When you put quality ingredients in, you'll actually get a good burger
- The table to the right, one person out of a party of 4 didn't get their main, just a sad side salad
- The table to the left of us weren't able to flag anyone down to place an order for 30mins
- Other customers in general very drunk in the middle of the day
Positive aspects :
- Good fries
Do not bother. I was hoping for a great local pub, but will never spend money here again.
Historic bar/pub at the north end of Soth Street Seaport. Originally for ship'stores became a liquor warehouse and longshoreman bar over 100 years ago. Bar is still the same, undamaged by by Sandy. Was also the headquarters of Joseph"Socks" Lanza, who controlled NY docks in the 1930 through 1945. How is that for history? Food is good--basic pub grub. Service very good. Noise not too bad. A place worth seeking out if you are devoted to NYC history!
Had a surprise party here on Saturday, 5/6/17. The staff was so accommodating; when I kept adding more people to the reservation, they didn't even blink. Even though we hadn't requested separate checks, the waitress was so helpful - she just went to each table and calculated their bill. Everyone commented on how good the food was, and how perfect the setting was. Thank you, Paris Cafe, for a memorable event.
Horrible experience. I thought this would be a nice place for a meal and a rangers game. I thought wrong. The service was absolutely horrible. They had a few games going and we kindly asked the bar tender if he could simply switch a Wisconsin - Canada game (that absolutely no one was watching) to a rangers game and they threw a fit. All they cared about was being able to watch themselves - as if they had never heard of customer service. Ordered a Moscow mule which was repulsively strong and left. I will never go back there again.
The mussels frites are outstanding! The place is 100+ years old and imbued with history and authenticity...Given proximity to Wall Street, prices reasonable...
Great food and a make you feel at home attitude. Annette was wonderful with her historical anecdotes and cheery personality.
staff was extremely nice and accommodating... they were supposed to be closed for a private event but fit us in anyway - great food, great find, good go to spot in the seaport area.
Excellent family meal
Food was excellent
Incredible food. Lamb shank was perfectly done. Prices we wonderful. Ambience was nostalgic, with an with an air of holiday tranquility. Warm and inviting, it was the perfect setting to catch up with good friends for drinks and a satisfying dinner. The holiday walk to the cafe was romantic and felt like a coastal city hideaway.
Cousins get-together after a cruise. Good menu choices, we enjoyed the pasta dish and the shepherd's pie was excellent. Lovely ambiance, a wee bit too dark for some, but I liked the decor.
Prices were good. Wait staff was great.
The restaurant was beautiful and the food was good. However service was very sub-par. The staff seemed very unorganized and confused about who was doing what, to the point where they bought the wrong food to me.
Average food at local pub full of locals. Outside on the street next to traffic.
Nice bar / restaurant in South Seaport.Recommend fish and chips.Not very extensive menu,and maybe a bit noisy.
Perfect after a day at Sandy Hook beach on the Seastreak. Everyone had a hankering for seafood and this place had it plus a great burger for one of us.
Every time we go is a nice experience, great location and the service is excellent!
The food was so much better considering the price. Service was warm and attentive. I'd definitely recommend for anyone who likes good food and service. Definitely will be returning
The Paris Café fits so well into the historic atmosphere of the South Street Seaport neighborhood. The bar room is beautiful, the staff is welcoming, and the beer menu is extensive. Diarmuid Hackett runs a great show, from the bar to the food to the décor.
There are so many faux historic bars and restaurants that pretend to have been in this neighborhood for years; The Paris Café is the real thing.
If only someone could bring back Sloppy Louie's.
Outstanding place to spend St Patrick's Day. Fun bar, super staff, great food!
We reserved a table at the Paris Cafe based on trip advisor reviews. Food was good and service excellent.
Yes, it's the Paris Cafe, but actually a wonderful New York Irish restaurant/bar. So nice to see that it has made a come-back after "Sandy". We were there on a Saturday evening, and it was crowded and we had 2 five-year olds and were made to feel welcome and had great service and very good food. Would not hesitate to go back.
We eat here whenever stay in lowerManhattan. This restuarant has friendly staff, great food, nice ambiance, and is a good value for the money. Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed!
Really nice vibe to this restaurant.Situated almost at the beginning of Brooklyn Bridge,the food and the service here are top notch.I had the fish - really fresh and tasty.My partner had the lamb- again sumptious.Also good value for Manhattan.It is a popular spot so book with Open Table to guarantee an amazing evening
I loved this restaurant. Even though it probably isn't a "typical" place to take kids the view and menu (even the adult one, since they don't have a kids one) made it a great choice for my family.
The drinks could have been better. Didnt know how to make a Moscow Mule. The head waitress
was quite snippy. I would go back only if i was passing by and needed a burger.
The service was great and the food awesome. I wished the drink menu was more elaborate but there were no complaints with our orders
My boyfriend and I brought our newlywed friends here while they were in town for their honeymoon. I made the reservation only about six hours in advance with the additional request to "make it a special occasion", if possible. Since the reservation was made so close to the actual time, I was not at all expecting my request to be granted. However, just after our entrees arrived, one of the waitresses stopped by with glasses of complimentary champagne and best wishes for the newlywed couple!
The experience was fabulous overall and made it so easy to celebrate a special occasion. The food was also delicious and the service off the charts. Would recommend highly!
Wonderful atmosphere! Excellent service. Food was good. Great place to eat when you're visiting South Street Seaport.
Found this at the edge of the seaport and it was a great find. Soup was top notch and had lamb stew which was notable for its smooth, Guinness-like flavor and veggies. Other plus was the great background music...pleasant Motown and soul for a pleasant Sunday lunch. More people should take the walk towards the water's edge and find this old time gem on South Street.
We arrived in time for our reservation, but there was no table for us. The manager had been busy and had failed to check recent email reservations. She apologized and said she would find a way to seat us in about 25 minutes, but we were tired and decided not to stay. We found Balalu around the corner and had a delightful meal in a quiet beautiful setting.
We love our lunch at The Paris Cafe! The food was phenomenal, and the history behind the restaurant makes the experience even better. We recommended the restaurant to others we met.
We brought a group of 12 Middle School students to NYC for a conference. Some restaurants cringe at groups that large, especially with younger children. The Paris Cafe was very welcoming to all, and our server, Annette, was the best part of the meal. She was patient, kind, and super helpful. She took the time to speak with the kids, and took care of all our needs. The food was delicious, fresh, and prepared quickly. I will definitely be back on my next trip to New York and will recommend to anyone traveling. Thank you Paris Cafe for such a wonderful experience!
