Diner Reviews
  • "We were looking for a good place to have a conversation for a couple of hours, and this was our choice, and a great location too. Interesting menu and the food was indeed very good. If I don't check "outstanding," it's only because I save that word for extraordinary experiences. This was excellent in every way, and the serenity was even better than we had imagined. There were lots of people there, but even as the room filled up, it was never noisy. This is one of the few places in NYC where I could say that, and for that reason alone we would recommend this restaurant. "

  • "Starting with the aloof hostess who was very put out that I asked for a different table even though the restaurant was empty, to the very, very slow and indifferent service, it was a disappointing experience. Although I love the location and the decor and I adored my quinoa salad, I would probably not go back. I asked for bread and was brought two pieces of toast, no butter or olive oil to accompany it. My colleague changed his mind and wanted a soup appetizer after another in our group received his, and it took 20 minutes to bring out a bowl of soup. Mind you, the restaurant wasn't even half full. I've read other complaints about the service and now I see what they mean."

  • "I made a dinner reservation with a Fortune 500 client. They rented the restaurant portion out to a 3rd party and did not call to notify of the change, extremely unprofessional behavior."

  • "Best thing about the Royalton is location, location, location. Breakfast is adequate, not memorable, service was totally lacking. We sat for almost an hour without anyone even offering us more coffee. Lobby is characteristically dark but fireplace is always a nice touch."

  • "No wonder the adjacent bar was packed and the restaurant. Half full. They need to find a way to keep the bar banging sound out of the restaurant. Amazing service Great food At least avoid on Thursday nights. Too too loud"

  • "Perhaps it was the time of day, maybe there has been a change in management since my last visit. What used to be a nice place for a business lunch has turned into just another hotel restaurant. The place was fairly empty, yet we were seated at the table nearest the back door. Before being seated, we asked for another table and were told that this was the only one available.The other open tables never filled up. In addition to the flood of daylight, we received a blast of cold air every time the door was opened. The food was fair, at best. My fish arrived luke warm and over cooked. My guest's turkey club sandwich was ordinary and the accompanying fries were limp. Service was pleasant but inattentive."

  • "Delightful food in a nice ambience. But, when the improper food was delivered for one of our guests, we searched high & low to find someone to assist us. Finally someone arrived that appeared unhappy to have been bothered. But they got even by taking forever to rectify the situation. When first seated, we asked for bread, which arrived at the end of the meal after the second request. Highly recommend the salmon although cool after waiting for the errant meal to be corrected."

  • "think this place makes a very cool place to meet for a drink. dinner was okay. limited menu, overpriced and food was good but not plated in some fabulous way. was also pretty empty for friday night yet we sat ourselves when we couldn't find a hostess.. or waitress! and there is no dessert--not even a little free thing to get you moving along. disappointed."

  • "We went to Forty Four because we had theater tickets nearby. Back in the day, the Royalton was teeming with electricity. Now -- not so much. The wait staff couldn't have been nicer -- but that is about the only thing to recommend it. The environment looks tired -- I felt a little like I was at a Ramada Inn. The chef couldn't even be bothered to offer any desserts. No one was there on a Friday night. I would have rather gone to the diner across the street. At least there, you get what you pay for. Sad to see it come to this."

  • "Great soups, salads and sandwiches in a beautiful atmosphere. Great service, close to theaters, perfect choice for pre- matinee lunch!"

  • "This was my second experience, and I will definitely come to this place again. Just make a mental note to request NOT a table by the 43rd Street door. The soup was delicious and came in handy to ward against the cold breeze whenever anyone came or went. service was slow, but I think the wait-staff was taking their cues from my talkative lunch friend and tried not to be a bother. The food here is great, and the service overall is excellent."

  • "The food and service quality are perfect for business luncheons. The staff is very attentive, yet allows its guests the time required to both dine and conduct its business, with minimal interruption."

  • "I met a colleague there for breakfast at 8:30am. We really had a lot of fun. The wait staff was top notch and the food DELICIOUS!"
