From the perfect service to the amazing food and wine list, this is nothing short of delightful! I highly recommend the French Onion Soup, Kale Salad and the Hand-Cut fries alongside a glass of wine - so many great options!

Found this gem right around our place. Didnt have a reservation and were lucky enough to get a seat at the bar (which was still awesome) Place has a great atmosphere, and the staff are amazing. Our bartender was very accommodating and friendly too. Now...to the food. We decided to share the French onion soup, which I say would have this definitely gives the same dish I've had in paris a run for its money. Our mains of Steak fritz and Tuna Nicoise salad were out of this world. Dont let the simple presentation fool yah, as the flavour with surprise your tastebuds. I would definitely recommend the Steak Fritz as a must when visiting. Now desert we ordered the carrot cake with cinnamon ice-cream...something I've never had before combined and questioned it, but this combo is just mint. ?? In short, hit this place up if you in the SOHO area...you wont be disappointed.More

Great service! Great Food! We had the French onion soup burger and it was fabulous. The fresh cut fries were awesome as well. Servers were very friendly and right there if our water needed to be refilled. Would highly recommend

Little Prince has changed the intimate French bistro into a Terrible Disco bar of the Neighborhood. The people who work there don’t care about their customers. Please avoid making reservations because it does not matter, we made a reservation for 7:30pm but were not given...a table despite tables being open. We ended up walking out of the restaurant at 8:30pm. If you are looking for a real French restaurant with a nice and quiet environment THIS IS NOT the place for you.More

Went three times in a short period of time. First time was perfect. Good food and ambiance. Second time, the ambiance was on point but the food was so bad I couldn’t even eat. And third times food was ok but no ambiance whatsoever. Not...consistent at all...More

Cozy restaurant. Inviting and warm on a rainy fall night. Will day the booths were a little cramped for a party of 3-4. The crème br?lée was the highlight of the meal.

This is a local neighbourhood bistro in Soho. We noticed it was packed every night we passed it, so it looked promising. It was more than that, the food, the service, the atmosphere; all wonderful. Simple, fresh french influenced food, good value for money and...genuinely friendly staff. We just loved it.More

We were there during a birthday party among "the boys", and were delighted with the food but the party went on, and on,and on.....

When we walked by, I thought I was in France again! It was so precious with the flowers and tables! We were seated promptly as it was not busy, and our water glasses were filled immediately. Then...nothing. It was as if all the staff had...blinders on. We couldn't get noticed for love or money! I finally got up and asked the bartender if we could order drinks - and have a menu. He didn't seem shocked or apologetic when I told him that we couldn't get anyone to help us, but gave me menus and told us he would have someone take our order. I did notice that 3 staff members were laughing and socializing at the end of the bar like someone had some really good stories. (probably about the table where 4 people were waving their arms and white napkins like they were surrendering...). I ended up having to go to the bartender again to get someone to help us. When the waiter finally came, he literally sashayed over like he was on a runway, had his nose up in the air and took our order - by memory. Always a bad sign. No apology - but did say "No problem" when we thanked him. (I'm so happy that I wasn't a problem to ask him to do his job.) Long story, but suffice to say he got the order wrong but we decided it was too much trouble and just lived with it. The food was ok but bland. quick menu note - AVOID THE "SMOKED POTATOES" unless you like potatoes cooked and soaked in bacon fat. As a vegan, it almost made me sick, the bacon taste was so strong. Had to interrupt the waiter's conversation to get the bill. But just happy to be leaving. I wont go again - even for the cuteness of the restaurant.More

Great server, only in his third week , wonderful flavours, and good value. Definitely recommend this for a couples or adult family lunch. It would be hard to improve.
