It's expensive for what it is. The food is ok. There's no real atmosphere. The waiters aren't great. Service was pretty damn poor. The waiters congregate by their counter and whisper. Quite unprofessional. The bakery is the best part of this establishment but I wouldn't...More

They served me a stale fruit tarte, even though the salad was good. They even decorated it with a flower petal. This is not a good place for pastries.

Every time this place can give you a incredible dinner! The wine list is amaZing and when you eat something from their menu you can be with your mind really in the middle of FRANCE! Great place

While visiting New York we stopped in Layayette French Bakers and had some of the best pastries I've ever eaten! (Great service too!)

I have been to this bakery once a week for the past year and can't get enough of their pastries. Amazing all the way... I am from Italy and know a good pastry when I eat one! Definitely worth stopping in to try a treat!

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
