Description: The history of Parisian tea rooms is intimately tied to the history of the Ladurée family. It all began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, a miller from the southwest of France, founded a bakery in Paris at 16 rue Royale. The story of the Ladurée macaron began in the mid-20th century with Pierre Desfontaines, second cousin of Louis Ernest Ladurée, who had the delicious idea of creating a double macaron, two simple macaron shells joined in the middle by a luscious filling. And the rest, as they say, is history. Today, Ladurée is not only the "Fabricant de Douceurs depuis 1862" (Maker of Sweets since 1862), but also a global company bringing the French Art de Vivre to the world.

My family enjoyed a perfect Parisian brunch at Laduree Soho NYC. The ambience is perfect ! After visiting France several times, I can tell you that Laduree is a perfect venue for a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner. This restaurant is beautifully appointed. Waitstaff, especially Iskra, is most professional and attentive to your every desire. Jeff, the GM, greets every patron with a warm smile and personal attention. The Croque Monsieur and Avecado Toast is supreme! We enjoyed Aperol Spritz and great French wine! The chocolate and raspberry croissants were divine! Our desserts were most exquisite!! The beautiful garden setting and outdoor bar area make the dining experience most excellent!! Make Laduree a must on your dining experience list- you will happy you did!! Till we meet again- Arevoire !!!

The service was adequate but the menu was limited and very expensive! The outside area was lovely and tempting but the experience was not worth the famed Parisienne name.

We were a couple for brunch on a Thursday. The place is gorgeous, usual Laduree style + beautiful outdoor / garden tables and a bar. Good food as expected. Nevertheless, the service was terrible. The place was not crowded at all (no one inside and barely six tables with couples outside) and still they managed to take forever to bring our order (I mean, the order arrived, but sadly it was wrong and we had to order again what they had forgotten). Basically we spent half of our time waiting for the check. Staff (and they are plenty) just disappears and costumers are left waiting. Too bad that in the US tipping is mandatory in restaurants. If we were in Europe, no way I would have left a cent for the type of service we received. They might as well keep living out of Laduree’s fame and delicious pastries, but there is a lot of room for improvement.

We have been here several times, but this time we came with our young grandsons. We got a bunch of macarons to take home, and ice cream for the boys and cappuccino for me and my husband. Unfortunately, the boys got a hold of the box of macarons before we noticed and ate half of them! They were so good! The line was quite long, but the folks behind the counter were very patient with us and the boys.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a restaurant owner we know in Coconut Grove. We were in Manhattan and made a reservation for lunch. With great weather we sat in the garden, which is totally shaded by beautiful trees. Our waitress recommended the "Dish of the Day," which was Cod Fish over spinach. With some wine we enjoyed the Cod Fish, which turned out to be the best Cod I have ever had and one of the best fish dishes I had in many years. We finished with a Fraisier 2017 and espresso. The meal was an exceptional lunch, together with great, friendly service. For anyone going to Manhattan this is a stop you must make for an exceptional meal.
