We discovered this restaurant 6 years ago and since then we always go there again and again for lunch and/or dinner. Being Swiss citizens we wanted to try the Cheese Fondue. This was a very funny experience and we have to admit: it was very good! But not only this "exotic" meal is to be recommended. From Burgers, over good meat, till to salad and mussels - they have a quite broaden menu card. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The seating is a little bit narrowed. But that isn't a negative component for us. If you want to have seats for sure, just do a reservation in advance. And if you enjoyed your good meal, then go for a warm chocolate cake for dessert. You will feel like in heaven...

Nice cozy place to go for French fare. Prices are in line with other NYC restaurants. For $24 you get a nice salad, French onion soup, glass of wine and dessert. French bread is also put on the table. Good deal! Can get crowded but worth the visit.

We have been visiting La Bonnie Soupe for almost 20 years now. It's simple but elegant, classic but not stuffy, affordable but not cheap. We have never been disappointed. It's like visiting old friends. The onion soup is always savory, hot, crusty with gobs of melted cheese. We dined here on New Year's Eve with another couple and had a charming experience. The service is always attentive and friendly. The prices are affordable and the quality is always high.

This is a tiny restaurant tucked away that is a gem in New York. Have been visiting La Bonne Soups for years for lunch every time we visit the city. It has been in business for many, many years. Cozy atmosphere and great service. Our favorite is the cheese fondue with their French onion soup. Food quality is alway excellent. Have deviated from our fav occasionally and been completely satisfied. This is a very busy restaurant, so if going for lunch or dinner plan to arrive as close to opening as possible.
