cozy cozy cozy. 'Merci...vive la France"...Ambience,staff and food....Bravo...one of my favorits spots in the city to bring my friends...what a great find...Cozy,cozy,cozy...
great little bistro...french touch.....
charming little bistro in the east village.....cool people......beautiful people!!!!! great music.....the food is what you'd hope for from a bistro....the service is fine.....french touch!!!! I recommend it because of the atmosphere and the number of people I know that love it!!!! do not expect to be treated like a king, it is just a bistro!!!
great atmosphere, great food, a definite with the significant other. my girlfriend and i happened to be walking by en route to some argentinean dinner and the charm and warmth of the place grabbed our eye..i had been before but didnt realize we were on that block..we had a very casual inviting drink by the dimly yet perfectly lit bar while romantic music was piped in as perfect background...we decided to bail on south of the border and engaged in a delicious meal of salads, big burgers, and outstanding grouper in a delicious heart of palm type broth..we had the restaraunt to ourselves-- it was tues at 7.30pm.. at a corner table..enjoyed another drink on the outside paito ...the place would be perfect for groups, romantic nights, or simply a casual drink and burger..it can fit all the right moods and needs...just our waitress had no clue...would definitely go back...waitress aside...
enjoy. great tasty food....charming waitresses....amazing decor....cool music.....in brief the perfect chilled evening on a week day.... week ends are usually too crazy for me.....enjoy
If you never dared to go on a week end night because of too many people, then try it for the brunch....great place for a relaxing brunch....not too crowded, great music, and exquisite food... I highly recommend the burger (seems like French people know how to make a real burger!!), and the Croque madame (Croque monsieur with an egg on top....delicious......)...... Brunch time is also great for families because the people working are very friendly to the kids (obviously as long as they behave!!!!)...
I really love this little French bistro because of its friendly atmosphere and the great food.....
a real newyorker spot. When more than five restaurants and store owners refer you to a restaurant, you know something special is going on.I loved it...as soon as i stepped in... i was in a good mood. After a little wait at the bar we ended up in the garden with my friend. What a cozy little place...i had the Thai Salmon and tried my friend's Filet Mignon, amazingly tasty...The wine was also very good and only $7...Dessert ?..Cafe?..But off course...we went for a flourless chocolate cake, which was very hard to share...we'll be back soon...
I never liked that place, from the early years, I never found the food was good and I was always shocked how rude the staff is . Never the less I dragged myself for dinner there the other night to celebrate my friend's birthday. We were 7 at the table and NONE of us liked their food. The chicken was dry, the mash was cold, the fish tasted old and every dish was drowned in a ridiculous overwhelming balsamic sauce. On top of it, the service was really bad, especially from the pathetic manager who should seriously consider taking Prozac. I am French and I am embarrassed of their representation of French culture, gastronomy and atmosphere. When we called them on their unprofessional behavior, they acted like rude retarded teenagers, basically telling me to buzz of.
That night, one friend was sick all night, she thought it was the chicken...
# Be conversational: Write it as if relaying your experience to a good friend.
# Be specific: Generalities like "lazy service" or "tasty pizza" leave people wanting more detail.
# Be yourself: If you're an expert on burgers, let us know. If this is your first-time massage, say so.
# Be fair: Comparing the city's top French restaurant to a neighborhood taco stand is just silly.
An Old Standby Continues To Charm.
Casimir is one of those beloved places that East Villagers just dropped by for years. We were always happy with the food, service & ambiance. Nowadays, at least on the weekends, it's a good idea to call ahead for a reservation if you're eating after 8:00pm. Success hasn't spoiled Casimir--on the contrary it is one of the few places that rises to the challenge & has actually become a better restaurant. It has the relaxed feel of a great lounge, good service and excellent food. If you're a fan of wild striped bass make sure to order when available as Casimir gets it fresher & prepares it better than many seafood places. Casimir is a great place for groups of 4-8 as the jazz lounge atmosphere lends itself to hanging out. Plus the reasonable prices won't give you indigenstion afterwards or make bill splitting that much of a chore.
The ONLY drawback continues to be the unattractive outdoor "garden" which is basically uncomfotable metal folding chairs on cracked asphalt. Avoid it & stay inside & truly enjoy this enduring & endearing gem.
I'm almost hesitant to rave about Casimir as its success has made it harder for me to get a table but I must give credit where its due!
really good bistro. I move to the east village about 6 months ago. since I do not cook, I go out every night and had a chance to explore all of the french bistro around. I picked casimir my favorite bistro for its chilled ambiance on week days (week ends are usually crazily packed!), and the habitual great food....The specials are usually delicious, the chicken liver salad is really good, the fois gras is home made and very tasty, the filet mignon is super tender, the lamb is too die for and all of the side orders are highly rcommended (I have a preference for the carrots and the mashed potatoes!). Casimir became my "cantina", I go there once a week and I have never been disappointed so far, so hope it will keep this way!!! I will recommend this restaurant to anyone that want good food with no pretention.......
