  • "Used the RW offer to try this long standing midtown icon. Service is outstanding. Make sure to ask Jodi, the sommelier for his wine recommended wine pairing. He has a wonderful palate for matching wine to your meal. The food iwas perfectly prepared, and a trip to the rooftop bar is the perfect beginning or end of a great evening. Absolutely one of the best restaurant week experiences I have ever had."

  • "We traveled 500 miles to celebrate our 10th anniversary in NYC and did a lot of research in choosing a restaurant for the occasion. We arrived to find a beautiful dining room and fabulous ambiance. But the experience failed to match expectations because of our server, who didn't bother to introduce himself or to be very attentive to our table. It was interesting to note his change in demeanor at other tables, where there seemed to be 'regulars.' So we wondered if this spot prefers to be a neighborhood place instead of one that wants to welcome any travelers. The food was excellent, and the sommelier was very helpful and accommodating. It's too bad our snooty waiter put a damper on the evening."

  • "The decor in this restaurant is beautiful, the service not so much, I'm assuming because we were ordering from the restaurant week menu. After pouring me the smallest glass of $16 pinot noir, our waiter took our entire order & we never saw him again. The apps were delicious, for entree we ordered the"sirloin" which was a tiny piece of sliced beef that tasted more like flank steak. The dessert was marscapone & ginger bread the ginger bread tasted stale. No one asked if we our meal was OK at any time. However there was live jazz & I feel if you were ordering off the regular menu it would be a completely different experience."

  • "Have wanted to eat at Patroon for a long time. Restaurant Week was the perfect opportunity to try it out. Was very impressed with the food and service. Our table was in an awkward place and not particularly comfortable but it did not stop us from enjoying the evening. My office is close by and I will return."

  • "I've been wanting to try Patroon for at least 20 years and tonight finally did. The dining room is beautifully designed with elegant materials. Service was phenomenal and appropriately attentive. Our waiter Jim was terrific and very sweet The food was very well prepared and seasoned from appetizers to desserts. Had a fantastic night and look forward to returning soon!!"

  • "I thought the food was good for restaurant week but portion size was a little too small and the food came out a little too fast."

  • "Our first time here. We were very impress by the very professional staff who catered to our every needs with courtesy timeliness and grace. Stephan the chef of operations made our evening a most pleasurable one with his charm, food was great but very small portions, the room very gracefully decorated. Will for sure return."

  • "This is a beautiful space to bring your date. The host/hostess are extremely welcoming as is the wait staff. Service was excellent. The duck was wonderful as was the fish. Salads and desserts were super. We will go back to sample more of the menu."

  • "....even though the prices are! Very mediocre and overpriced food, with a similarly mediocre and overpriced wine list, in a similarly mediocre and overly noisy dining room. Skip this if you want a steakhouse. So many better choices abound in New York."

  • "Service was really slow. Noisy Food is great but wow lunch was slow waiter Mia"

  • "I've been to Patroon a few times. Last time, which was about a month ago, everything was outstanding. This time we were offered to seat upstairs on their terrace. Big mistake! No umbrella for our table so when the sun came out strong, it was extremely warm. The worst part of the meal was the extremely poor service. We had to ask 3 times for the ice tea that was ordered when we first sat down. When we finally got it, no spoon or straw was provided nor any sugar or sweetener. It wasn't even busy upstairs. So while downstairs is a fine dining experience, it was quite the opposite for upstairs (FYI...same prices). I would strongly suggest that they get their act together upstairs. Would not recommend to take clients there."

  • "Patroon has been my favorite mid-town restaurant since it opened - the Tuna burger for lunch can't be beat."

  • "We had a business lunch for 3. Ambiance was top level, food very good and service attentive yet unobtrusive. It was just what we were looking for."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Staff was so attentive and unobtrusive. My guest and I totally enjoyed the sweetbreads and pork center cut. We will return."

  • "I came here with a colleague for a long sit down lunch. We sat upstairs on the roof and it was gorgeous. Great ambiance. The service was outstanding, very attentive. The food was great. I had the risotto paella and it was delicious! I highly recommend for outdoor lunch; would definitely come back here again."

  • "Patroon is a case study for hospitality as it consistently delivers excellence and genuine service - not the condescending kind that you too often encounter at other fine dining establishments. The venue is a personal reflection on the owner, Ken Aretsky who opens his restaurant and art collection up to guests as if in his home and likewise, can often be found personally greeting regulars and newcomers alike. His staff follows suit with tremendous attention to detail and emotive service, both of which make this my go to business lunch spot. After work, the rooftop scene is a bit more low key and fit for both drinks with buddies and business partners. I am a difficult person to please but Patroon always gets five stars. "

  • "Have been going to Patroon for years. It's always been great, but it was especially great this past week. The swordfish was delicious -- my favorite was the Brussel Sprout salad. "
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Aretsky's Patroon serves consistently good food. I often go there for lunch and it never disappoints. The fare is on the lighter side which I prefer. Service is very friendly and professional although there is sometimes a wait for the table despite reservations. The only downside for me is the fairly high noise level common to many Manhattan restaurants. But it gets better after 2 pm."

  • "The maître d has sharp practices. He deliberately substituted my brandy order for the most expensive brandy at $52 a glass. Naturally I did not find out till the bill arrived. Just bad."

  • "my wife loves the steak tartare best in town, service is great, food remarkable as good as anything you ill find anywhere, we always have a great time and like to take first timers to the restaurant they leave raving about the place, a gem..."

  • "She did not smile, and when I greeted my friend in the lobby before I greeted he, she smirked. But that's incidental. For lunch, the tuna, the hamburgers and the bay scallops in season are perfectly prepared. The cheesy flatbread served in the breadbasket is addictive. "

  • "Terrific Service, gracious reception and the food was excellent."

  • "Selected because friends were coming in from out of town and we wanted to spend an evening with good food and enjoying each others company. Done deal. They gave us a table in the back away from the Friday night music where we could talk and enjoy the food and were able to spend over 2 hours in a very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant crew more than met expectations. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "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."

  • "As good as it gets, but only if you are on a T&E account because it is very expensive."

  • "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"
