NOT a local fav anymore – This used to be a local BYOB place, we used to go here all the time. Then they changed their BYOB policy and never bothered to tell anyone about the $15 cork fee. When I order the pork dish it was dripping in oil, the waitress never mentioned it was deep fried, YUCK. We inquired about the cork fee on the bill and finally they took off the fee however they proceeded to literally hover around us until we left, we didn't even finish our wine. While they hovered over our table the manager proceeded to talk about us to other customer, right in front of us he said, "they brought their F'ing wine" and many other things. Thought the French being RUDE was just a stereotype. We will never go here again.
French Gem in Murray Hill – I'm always afraid that good reviews will mean that I won't be able to get a table next time I go to Cosette but they do deserve the praise- and a visit. This small restaurant is perfect for an intimate dinner for 2 or a party of 4 or more. I've been coming here for the past 3 years and have never had a bad meal. I've tried the entire menu as well as the specials and I really can't complain. I've brought family and friends to this place and it has become a favorite to all that have visited. Besides the friendly staff the food is the perfect combination between french classics and comfort food and there is always a wine to pair it with. I would recommend the Napoleon and the salade frisee and the salmon tartare for starters just because they are my favrites. For entrees try the Steak, the Rabbit or the fish, you can't go wrong. For dessert- the chocolate mousse will send you home with a smile on your face and in your wallet. This wonderful little restaurant great and very modestly priced. Go try it and I'm sure you'll agree.
Its nice and intimate – This is one of my favorite restaurants. Great food and atmosphere. The servers are very nice. I pretty much had everything on the menu and I love them all. Also, the food portions are great!.Wine list is percect . This is great place to take someone for a date. It's nice and intimate.
Romantic hideaway – I've been going to Cosette for the past two years and it is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Its small size gives it a cozy, romantic feel -- not to mention the fact that the owner also takes your order and serves you. The food is delicious -- I'm a fan of the onion soup and the steak aux poivre. I would highly recommend it for a special occasion.
DELICIOUS FRENCH NEIGHBORHOOD RESTO – Even though I've lived just 10-12 blocks away for years, I never noticed this charming French restaurant on 33rd between 3rd/Lex until friends mentioned it (because it is close to the last stop on their express bus from the hinterlands) . . . . The service was terrific, the meal was delicious.....it is a tiny place, so it got a bit noisy as our meal progressed....but a glass or two from Cosette's nicely priced wine list helped modulate the tones....
good food, great, wine, and tres romantique! – My fiancee and I chose Cosette for our Valentine's Dinner this year! We loved it! Our table was ready for us right away with no problem. They promptly brought us bread, water, and gave great suggestions regarding the wine list. The Valentine's menu did not have many choices, but it did not bother me, as there was something for everyone. Both my fiancee and I chose the endive salad was an appetizer which was just delicious. I had the cherry duck and he had the filet mignon. Both were great siezed portions and just delicious! The BEST part was dessert!!! Chocolate hearts filled with chocolate and cream. They were delicious and both of the meals came witha glass of champagne! I love the lighting with candles, it's quaint, romantic, and the service was excellent! It made our evening! I recommend it highly!
Best Local French – Service is amazing and the food is great. From the freshly baked bread to the wine list, everything is excellent at this french bistro.
Treasure in the rough – An overall great experience start (great french wines) to finish (to die for apple tart). It's quite small, with wine boxes lining the dining area, but the whole experience is very real and tasty.
Wonderful food and wonderful service – I went here on a Sunday night for dinner with my best friend. The waitress and manager? were great. They were really attentive and spoke french or at least had a french accent. We got a bottle of wine (21$- the cheapest) and I had the Cod and my friend had the Salmon. Very yummy! They also give you bread and they refilled it because I ate it all in the first 5 minutes. Delicious butter too!! We had the Creme Brulee for dessert. We each got one but it was way too filling. I would recommend sharing. I left very stuffed and very happy!
Romantic-mania!! – My boyfriend and are huge fans of this particular restaurant. Recommend to go there for dinner if couples since they have an excellent wine list. (if not wine-drinker, go for the ones they recommend) Love the DECOR; the owner is kind and humorous; general staff are well-etiquetted and comforting.
I would also recommend it if you like dining alone for a private and fulfilling meal.
