A word from Aureole
Charlie Palmer's signature Progressive American cuisine first took root in the original townhouse location of Aureole, where the chef made an early commitment to farm over factory food. Today, Aureole continues to shine at One Bryant Park under the kitchen leadership of Executive Chef Marcus Gleadow-Ware. Dining at the contemporary Aureole is staged in two venues: the formal Dining Room and more casual Bar Room. In the Dining Room, terra-rich colors and golden lighting combine to create a comfortable environment and opulent warm glow, reminiscent of Aureole’s original townhouse intimacy. Evening guests may select from a 3-course prix fixe or tasting dinner menu. For lunch, a seasonal 3-course prix fixe menu is available as well as a la carte selections. Reservations can be made here for the Dining Room only. To reserve in our more casual bar room, please visit Aureole - Liberty Room.

Diner Reviews

  • "If the theater district is temporarily your New York City neighborhood I can offer your new favorite neighborhood gem-Aureole. It's wonderful to find a restaurant notable for great cuisine and service, just steps from your hotel! The menu offers a variety of items featuring the freshest of ingredients from oysters on the half shell to Hudson Valley fois gras and dishest which feature innovative preparation like meringue studded red velvet cake. Enjoy eating like a foodie, but expect to pay the price."

  • "We had dinner at Aureole on Saturday night before a show at the Stephen Sondheim Theater which steps away. If you are looking for pre-theater fine dining you would be hard pressed to find better. The options are a set tasting menu or a 3 course Prix Fixe meal. Due to time, we opted for prix fixe, and even so the options left us with hard choices to make because they all looked delicious. But once that hard work was completed we could not have been happier. We were glad to have chosen the back room as the casual front room was loud and the bright billboard across the street was distracting. The service was professional and unobtrusive. The food was outstanding across the board. While expensive, great experience and value."

  • "Birthday dinner was perfect. Exceptional food and top notch service (thanks, Jackie!), great wine list. Would definitely go back. Restaurant called after we left to report an item (lens cap) we inadvertently left at our table. They graciously held it until we could get back the next day to pick it up. Above and beyond. A+"

  • "We had lunch before a matinee. We both choose the fix price menu. I had the heirloom tomato salad which was ok and my husband had the soup which was bland and a small quantity. I had sea bass. The portion was small but the fish was very tasty. The skin was crisp and the fish very moist and it was seasoned perfectly. My husband had veal which he liked and it was a reasonable portion. I had the eclair which I found the chocolate too bitter for my taste but my husband liked it. He had the strawberry shortcake which was OK. The service pleasant but very slow."

  • "We booked a reservation through OPEN TABLE for a 6 pm this past Sunday evening (July 6th) and arrived at the restaurant to find out that it was closed. In the future I will call the restaurant directly (especially on weekends) because you did not have the correct information in your reservation system. Needless to say, I was disappointed."

  • "This is the perfect spot for pre theater dinner. The food is outstanding and the theaters are just around the corner. Service and execution were excellent as well."

  • "My friend and I were in NYC for the July 4th weekend. I had tix to see Beautiful, which is playing next door. This restaurant is areal find. The server was excellent. We had a nice leisurely meal and it was delicious. My friend ordered the baby arugula salad and loved the citrus notes in the dressing. I had the ravioli in a heirloom tomato sauce which was very tasty. I also had the salmon entree. Excellent! The skin was crispy and the fish cooked to perfect medium. My friend had the steak with potatoes and vegetables. She enjoyed it very much. We both had the fresh melon and lemon sorbet dessert and it proved to be the perfect palate cleanser. Very refreshing. Next time I am in town I will be going to Aureole."

  • "It was our first time at this place. We got there with my husband for our anniversary. The food is outstanding, the service's great. wine menu- awesome. Its pricey though, not for often visits. But for special occasions, wonderful place."

  • "This was a huge highlight if not THE highlight of my trip to New York. The food was the most delicious I've ever tasted, and the service staff was phenomenal in their politeness and service. Since returning home, this has been the part of the trip that my wife and I tell the most detail about when friends ask what we did. Everything was beautifully presented and was truly delicious. I would hope we can return soon. There probably isn't another trip to New York for us too soon, but when there is I will be sure to come back to Areole!"

  • "Restaurant is a good selection for a casual business lunch in Times Square, although the tables are very close together. Service was very efficient. Food was good."

  • "Have been a regular guest at Aureole...this recent experience was not up to par. While the food was its usual 5 star, Service in the main dining room was extremely poor with long waits and no one to check in on us."

  • "very good service, good location if attending the theatre, good ambience and vibe. The negative would be the price vs. amount of food. We live in NY and dine out a lot - not looking for a plate full of food, but my husband ordered the pork chop and recvd one small bone of which they carved out 2 small slices of meat. By the time he took the fat off - there was almost nothing to eat. The bill was over $200 with one glass of wine. My husband was starving and ready to hit Porter House for some sliders. Now that is a restaurant that gets it right."

  • "We had been to Aureole a number of times before while it was in its old location and decided to go try it in its new place for lunch as we were in town. The food and service were excellent as before, the larger restaurant very impressive in a more formal sort of way. We enjoyed it very much, although I must admit, the old layout in a townhouse had a friendlier character."

  • "My husband and I had dinner here Saturday. The food was spectacular, as always! Great service, great ambience- what more could you ask for? One of our favorite go-tos when in NYC! We will be back!"

  • "Everything was really great. The good was amazing and had a bottle of Turley Zin that was $110. When I got the bill it showed it at $155. Correction made and moved on. No other Turley win was even close to that price."

  • "We opted for the Liberty Room with the ala carte menu. The room is so noisey from the active bar scene you couldn`t hear the waiter. The supposedly more casual menu was anything but. After ordering at 6:15, (Pre-theater), the first course came 20 minutes later and the main course came out at 7:25. All 6 meals were cold. 5 out of 6 meals were not that good for the price paid. Steaks very small, duck for 2 was not tasty at all. Cheeseburger was mediocre. (It was so cold that the cheese shrunk back to the original size after it had melted). The chicken was excellent but cold. Fries were good. Of course, we had to gobble some of the dinner to make our show."

  • "This restaurant served excellent food with outstanding service. Wait staff was very careful about the time and we made the theater with ease. It is a great find."

  • "Surprised there were few gluten free options for celiacs. They would make substitutions or alter some dishes, but at these prices my choices were very limited. Other top restaurants in the City offer better alternatives for gluten free meals. Aureole needs to address this issue."

  • "I and my wife are celebrating 15 years of wedding in this night. We made a special choice. Everything are perfect. And in the ending of our dinner, we received at table a dessert wit a special congratulations. Last year we celebrate in Le Bernardin, this year we celebrate in Aureole. Both are perfect."

  • "Loved the french service and extra treats! Wine listing pricing is on the high side not many moderate priced bottles but opt for a special bottle for our special occassion. Food was lusious, limited selectins but enjoyed every bite. Little touches is what make this dining experience special. Will return next trip to NYC"

  • "Had a wonderful dinner at Aureole's! Excellent service and great food! Only thing to remember is a sweater/jacket as it gets cold sitting close to the air con. (this might just be an issue for people not being used to the air con and really this is the case in all restaurants in US) Also the tables are a bit close (not great is you want a private conversation)"

  • "My wife and I were staying at the Hyatt Time Square and looking for a romantic dinner, and are happy to say Aureole did not disappoint. It was a very nice change from the hustle of Time Square, and a wonderful way to spend a few hours over an amazing dinner. Food, wine and service were all extraordinary and I'd highly recommend Aureole."

  • "Dinner was a treat of sophisticated tastes and aromas. Great effort obviously went into preparing each dish and it was worth it. The 3 course prix fixe offered inviting choices and all three courses stood on their own The lobster minestrone, for example, was perhaps the best soup I have tasted! If that were the meal, I would have been satisfied. I am glad I also had the Roasted Wagyu Beef and the Meyer Lemon Parfait. They, too, were among the best dishes I've had. Aureole really lives up to its reputation. It is a dining must."
