Didier review 1 Users say 1/5 Rate it

This elegant, wood-panelled destination attracts local gastronomes who love their French food classic, unfussy and perfect. After years of working at other people's restaurants, Didier LeRoy, a winner of France's prestigious Chevalier medal, is finally doing it his way. Menus are a cut above the norm- a gateau of pickerel in beurre blanc and the trio of duck stray far from bistro norms. At the charming Didier boutique, you can buy duck confit and tender cornish hens (but it is only open during the summer). If you crave classy French cuisine, Didier is worth a trip to Midtown.

You know when you read negative reviews about a critically acclaimed restaurant and think 'well they must have been having an off night' or 'The service can't be THAT bad'?

Well tonight I learned to listen to them.

Didier was the most insulting restaurant experience I have ever had the misfortune of having.

The long story short - we waited 40+ minutes for someone to even take our order, were completely ignored despite the restaurant not being terribly busy, and finally left without eating a thing. When I did try to voice a complaint, the 'manager' basically tried to tell me it was our fault. It wasn't- we were there on time (I was early in fact) and just sat there with menus, trying to make eye contact while every other table was served course after course.

The best part was when my husband asked the server, she didn't even bother to apologize, just said to him 'Here, take your tip back and we'll call it even'.
