From the romantic garden to the Parisian decor and the warm welcome, Harlemites have found a place that serves up good organic food in an atmosphere that makes dining out a joy.

What an amazing experience. Dining in a beautiful old brownstone building, jazz quartet playing, and delicious food being served. We ordered the French cheese, steak tartare, duck luck roast and special duck breathing. All 10/10. We got two bottles as well: the Brüt Rosé, nice and dry bubbly, and the Pinot Noir, with light flavours and a dry finish. Fantastic place. No wonder it's awarded the best restaurant in Harlem.

Fabulous. Very eclectic. Wonderful, yet uncomplicated menu. Will definitely visit again and again. I particularly love the garden area.

One of new jewels in heart of Harlem. Beautiful dining experience with amazing interior and every bite melting in mouth. The owner welcomes everyone as you a guest in his own house. For sure, I will be back!

My boyfriend invite me there for Valentine's day and it was just perfect . I am french, living in New Jersey since few months and I rediscovered the real french gastronomy. The waitress are all french and very nice . The owner : La creme des cremes . A very warmful and welcoming person . The food was excellent and worth it financially . I advice this restaurant that now is my favorite restaurant . We had a violonist musician , and a romantic singer , everything was perfect . The champagne was excellent . The decoration was really beautiful and remind me the french style a lot . I LOVE IT CONGRATULATION ALAIN FOR THIS WONDERFUL PLACE .

Cheri is a wonderful place for dinner, drinks and/or dessert any day of the week. The owner lives upstairs in the beautiful historic brownstone on Lower Lenox and cooks a fixed menu each day. The food is amazing, and the front terrace, ground floor living room or rear garden are all pleasant spots to sit, relax and enjoy conversation and food. The low-key atmosphere is such a nice contrast to all the noisy places popping up all over the neighborhood. We stop in regularly for drinks and dessert out back. The staff are always classy and happy to discuss the food. The owner will always stop by to check on you if he doesn't serve you himself. It's great to have such a wonderful European spot in the area!

Excellent food and attention. You never know what will you get in the menu, but it is the surprise of the excellent dishes, the atmosphere and the great back patio what drove me to chose this restaurant as my favorite of East Harlem.
