We shared the fried oyster appetizer. The oysters were disappointing: badly shucked, so it was small pieces, not whole oysters; as a result, there was a little too much breading and the oysters were a bit over cooked.

My short ribs Bourguignon were beautifully cooked, and the sauce would have been delicious, except it was way too salty, what a shame! The bread was very good.

My friend’s mussels steamed with fennel were awesome.

Service was excellent, ambience feels like France.

My daughter and I had a lovely dinner. I had the salmon, done to perfection on a bed of lentils and spinach that was equally perfect! My daughter had the tuna which she found to be delicious! We shared the chocolate mousse a perfect dessert to a wonderful meal. All the staff were attentive and professional. The space itself is quite lovely! Will definitely be back!

I’ve been twice for dinner and once for brunch. Service is good and the food has been good and a really good value. The menu feels a little bit limited to me, but there are a few dishes I like. I’ll be back often. Oh, Brunch is a fantastic deal.

For our first night in the Catskills we ate at Rive Gauche. My companions had a good cassoulet and I had steak au poivre and frites. To begin we had some fried oysters - very nice breading and super crispy. The wine list was fine, and the service was quite good, considering there was only one server for the night and 6-10 tables to take care of. I would definitely return.
