Diner Reviews
  • "It's a neighborhood treasure. Off the beaten path but not too far. Just far enough for the "locals" to know about and really drink in what it has to offer. The food was delicious and the service was terrific. Definitely a spot to share with friends. "

  • "Been here several times due to its close proximity from work. Ambiance is good, food is good, service is good. Not bad for a typical, business lunch get-together."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "As good as it gets, but only if you are on a T&E account because it is very expensive."

  • "The Dover Sole was excellent, as always. The quality of the food and service are consistently among the best in NYC."

  • "Small cozy bar and comfortable banquettes. Food and service were outstanding. The wine list is pricey but excellent. Unfortunately it is only open Monday through Friday. A wonderful find on the Eastside of Midtown"

  • "This may be the best Dover Sole in NYC. I always feel like I'm among family at this restaurant. I'll be back next week!"

  • "Very disapointed. Used to be a great place for a steak but the menu has changed. Looks like they lost it in the transition, food had little flavor. Menu was uninspiring. Wine list was ok but over priced even by ny standards. I don't think if go again."

  • "The food and the service was fantastic. They had just added rabbit to the menu the day before and it was the best rabbit I have ever had. the Kale salad with blood oranges was delicious also. The kale was very tender and tsty and a good contrast to the oranges,"

  • "The server took drink orders from 3 of our party of 5, and walked away before I even had time to ask a question about the wine list. And no, the reason he left was not to bring the sommelier, who we never saw. I later asked why he had walked away. He said not a word..shrugged..stared..and went away again. Had I not been with clients I would have left the restaurant then and there. Eventually another server appeared, and she took care of us competently but indifferently. The food was fantastic, but the described service incident was infuriating. In addition, at the end of the meal my credit card came back with the (much lower) bill from another table. The server barely said thank you when I pointed it out. I won't go back."

  • "The food was outstanding. I had the Restaruant Week menu. Wonderful fresh oysters. The steak was perfectly cooked, flavorful--a real treat. As was dessert. I will definitely go again. Service was professional and friendly."

  • "We were given the chef's table for a party of 5 which is situated slightly apart from other tables near the open kitchen - more intimate and afforded us the opportunity to have conversations. Food choice is varied and prepared well. Service is attentive. Enjoyed our lunch and would recommend to others."

  • "Tried this restaurant during restaurant week. The selection was wonderful....tried things I've never had before (quail). Enjoyed it very much...service was impeccable and charming...will definitely go back again the next time we're in New York."

  • "Had the ribeye (at the suggested temp of 'medium') for two (with whipped potatoes and asparagus as sides) and a caesar salad and a super bottle of bordeaux (a 1988) that I had not had before. Friendly, pleasant, and attentive staff. Food prep excellent. Great interior and great little bar that is sort of set apart from the restaurant. I have not had a better meal in mid-town in years. Just go."

  • "It was restaurant week and we went with the price fix. Quail was dry . Cod was good. Was hoping for a better meal. Waitress was excellent"

  • "My wife and I came in for dinner, initially because of their restaurant week menu looking so good, but I will be coming back for sure. The oxtail dumpings with mushroom consomme and black truffles were absolutely perfect. Highly recommended. Both desserts that we had were quite disappointing but that won't stop us from going back."

  • "We were in town for work and at the last minute had to find a place to eat dinner. We went to this because of previous Open Table ratings, and we were SO happy that we did. The food was excellent - some of the best I've had in NYC at this price range. The service was also excellent. I would highly recommend."

  • "They had great and attentive service. The waiters were not overly bothersome and were happy to respond to my questions. My date arrived a little bit late after the reservation time, but nonetheless, I did not feel pressured or hassled. The surroundings are very intimate and I felt like I had entered someone's private residence. The food was very good and I especially recommend the monkfish. It was so soft and easy to chew on like tofu. All in all it is a classy Midtown spot in NYC. Suit up!"

  • "When ordering scotch or other drinks, little light on the pour . This isn't canada nor Utah and neither are the prices. That's ok but no need To be so spartan. Food was fresh and excellent . Dumpling appetizer with truffles was outstanding As was grilled octopus. Ken the proprietor couldn't be nicer as well. He went to each table and checked How things were going. That's a rarity in NY."

  • "Food was very good, place is attractive, but service is only fair and pretensious."

  • "I've been going to Patroon for years. However the other evening was one of the best. Seated in a corner banquet we celebrated a dear friends birthday. Mr. Aretsky was there with friends and came over to the table several times. The food was divine. Our waiter beyond courteous and charming. I can't think of a more lovely evening. WOW!"

  • "An annual gathering lunch for good friends - good food , wine ,in a relaxed , non rushed atmospher Never disappointed"
    Dined on 1/7/2014
  • "When you go to one of the best restaurants in New York you expect them to deliver on that promise. Patroon does just that. The food selection and perpetration was perfect. The service outstanding. The menu may appear brief at first glance but they do offer options for most any taste, especially including the specials. The table side prepared Cesar salad was quite good and rarely offered anywhere else these days. Amazing steaks and an incredible looking rack of lamb. I had the halibut which was excellent , especially when accompanied by the unique and scrumptious vegetables. Enjoy this classy place friend. Oh, they offer some unique cocktails as well."

  • "This restaurant deserves more attention from tourists. It was quiet the day after Christmas, but everything was perfect."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "We had made a reservation, but got a table very near the kitchen, with lots of activity. My companions had scallops, which they loved. The soup was somewhat disappointing, & I had a salad with chicken which was overcooked. It was crowded, as we were there during the holidays, but the service was barely acceptable for a restaurant in this price range. There were lots of "regulars" who seemed to be treated better. We thought it was rather over-priced. There was no fixed-price menu, and lunch prices were high for entrees, which were entirely a la carte. The scallops were a special & were lovely, but there was no side (pasta, vegetable, etc.) just the bay scallops, and the price was $30+. A side vegetable was an additional $12 or so."

  • "I took my family to Patroon for a dinner out before seeing the tree and Rock Center. Our son lives in NY and is very familiar with eating at the finest restaurants, so I wanted only the best for this evening out. I chose this restaurant mainly for convenience as it is located between his apartment and Rock Center (important for my 82 year old mom who insisted on walking), but also wanted high end food in a singular restaurant (not one of a chain). Patroon was a fantastic choice.The Maitre'd and our waiter made the evening even that much more special. They were both very attentive, courteous and friendly. The ambiance was classy, but very comfortable. While expensive, you get what you pay for. I look forward to eating there again."

  • "Great quiet environment to discuss business and food was sumptuous"
    Dined on 12/2/2013
  • "Even by New York standards, the prices here were way over the score. Open Table should list it at $$$$, not $$$. I ordered a salad and an entree, and the bill was more than $60. The baby lettuce salad was forgettable. The grilled halibut was very good, as was the service. Everything's a là carte, and apparently the vegetable portions are very large, designed for sharing. This is probably a great place to take a group, on a generous expense account, or for a special occasion, but compared with the other excellent offerings nearby, the prices were just way out of line. (There was a lobster special that night: appetizer $75, entree $125.)"

  • "This is a very upscale lunch experience where you can actually hear the conversation. The service is excellent, the owner even stopped by our table."

  • "Excellent spot for lunch. Great food and excellent service. A mostly business crowd. Very efficient operation."

  • "After our arrival, we were interrupted half-dozen times to place our order. We just wanted to sit and talk for a bit and felt we were being rushed to order. It's not just here, but in a lot of placess."

  • "Very cute and quaint, lovely, light and delicate flavors in the food options. Excellent wine and spirits list! Loved it! They have a patio in the summer on the 3rd floor...want to come back and experience it!"

  • "Both the food and the service were outstanding. I waited at the bar for my friend to arrive and received attentive and courteous service. The food selection was great, and offered just the right level of variety. The preparation and presentation was exceptional and our waitress was extremely courteous and attentive. I would certainly return."
