A word from Petrossian - New York
Founded in 1984, New York Petrossian restaurant is housed in the historic Alwyn Court Building on Manhattan's West Side, one block from Carnegie Hall and four blocks from Lincoln Center. Owned by the Petrossians, it serves a French-influenced contemporary menu that features the caviar, smoked fish, and foie gras delicacies for which Petrossian is known throughout the world. Lunch, dinner, & brunch can be enjoyed at either the art deco style mirrored bar or in the dining room. Designed by Ion Oroveanu, the restaurant features Lalique crystal wall sconces, bronze sculptures from the 1930's, etched Erté mirrors, Lanvin chandelier and pink Finnish granite, all harmonizing to create a visual ambiance that can be savored equally with the unsurpassed gourmet experience.Continued

  • "Wanted to see the interior of the Alwyn Court Building which I have passed by many times and to view the Erte mirrors, so I took the opportunity of the Restaurant Week menu. It was better than average fare, but did not create the "come back" feeling in me."

  • "My girlfriend had wanted to go here for a long time. I decided to finally take her here for her birthday, and we both had a great time. Every second was bliss - great service, great food, great everything. Her sturgeon was super tasty, my filet was one of the best I've ever had, and the creme brulee was spectacular. We'll certainly be going back!"

  • "Probably one of the quietest restaurants in all of New York and its open late. Wonderful fish and the best smoked salmon in the city. Very good wine list; heavy on champagne."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We had a wonderful lunch here, the food is delicious and the staff are very professional. Many options for caviar and the presentation is beautiful. Be sure to ask for the Vodka list, they have many and the frozen shots were a very nice accompaniment to our meal. Beet borscht was delicious as were the accompanying pierogies!"

  • "Petrossian remains one of New York's quintessential spots. It is elegant, quiet has great service and really you go here for the caviar, some vodka, champagne or a nice whiter burgundy and then you are always surprised at how good the rest of the meal is. It's an indulgence but once in a while with that special person it is really the place to be."

  • "This has always been a place we remember as being special. It was perfect to celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary. The gilled frois gras was superb ... and of course caviar is a must at Petrossian ... the filet mignon with stilton melted in my mouth. The only criticism is that the very attentive staff rushed the service. They should know better. Petrossian is a place where one wants to linger and savor."

  • "We were two couples,both celebrating our anniversaries. The food was wonderful, the restaurant is very, very beautiful art deco and very romantic. The Maitre 'D was wonderful and put us in a very quiet table in the back. He noticed that we were toasting our anniversaries and gave us two beautiful complimentary desserts with candles. Very attentive service, but not overbearing. The food was fantastic and special. All in all a wonderful evening. I highly recommend it."

  • "This is our go-to restaurant whenever we want an outstanding dining experience at a reasonable price. It compares favorably with many others at double the cost."

  • "This was a special occasion that justified the expense. We increased our reservation from 2 to 4 when friends joined us. Petrossian is only a 0.4 mile from the Midtown Hilton--an easy walk. Our table was ready and the service excellent. Considering the quality of the food and service, the pricing is reasonable. When I serve caviar at home, I make my own blini similar to those served at The Firebird. Pretrossian serves a single thick blin. It was delicious, but different. My colleague asked for extra ice cream on his brownie, but we got the same tiny scoop. It was good, but that heavy chocolate could stand a bit more vanilla contrast. Overall, it was a delightful birthday celebration with my wife and good friends."

  • "We had a wonderful brunch here! The food was excellent; everyone was satisfied: my picky 16 yr old who loved the blueberry pancake appetizer and steak entree, and me, I am gluten free and had a wide variety of choices. My son adored his caviar omelette (certainly not your "typical" brunch fare) very good Eggs Benedict w/ perfectly crisped bacon. Service was attentive but not intrusive, and the courses were timed in a leisurely way so we never felt rushed. Some busy brunch places are like mills and you feel like you are jammed in and then rushed in and out. I can't think of a better way to enjoy a relaxed and delicious brunch. And do not be fooled by the fancy name or decor: nothing over the top about this brunch, including the price!"

  • "Food is beyond excellent. If you're going to spend the money, the food should be as mouth watering as it is here. Service is excellent. If you're ready to splurge and want to impress, go here."

  • "This is a must go restaurant for NYC visitors who love foods and willing to spend some money to enjoy foods. The caviar tasting item for lunch is worth trying. The smiling waitress is friendly and attentive. Quiet and relax atmosphere. "
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "Petrossian welcomes you to a respite from the crush of NYC humanity just outside the articulated glass door. A team of servers are attentive and efficient without being intrusive. Brunch was a reasonable prix fixe. Appetizers were caviar with creme fraiche on a blini and duck confit truffle risotto (among the most amazing dishes I've experienced). Entrees were smoked salmon Benedict and skirt steak with potato and a shirred egg. Desserts were a chocolate mousse cake with coconut sorbet and a sorbet trio. Top that all off with a nice Prosecco and you have a delightful, refined Petrossian brunch experience."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed an elegant and delicious dinner prior to a performance at Carnegie Hall. From the moment that we were escorted to a lovely corner table by a window, the service was seamless and highly professional. We chose the $48 prix fixe menu (which is quite reasonable for cuisine of this caliber) with the $12 supplement for caviar (after all, that's what Petrossian is famous for). We both had Atlantic char that was moist, beautifully presented, and accompanied by a melange of interesting vegetables. Good half bottles of wine were available. For dessert my husband had a sorbet selection and I had a piece of dense chocolate cake accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream.We finished in perfect time for the concert."

  • "This gorgeous 19th century mansion houses a restaurant that is a nyc landmark. And, how lovely to discover that the food lives up to its tradition. For the people who want a light meal have the petrossian special taster plate as a main course and the mixed green salad with pistachios and berries as a first. That combo plus the marvelous French rolls will be enough . And for those who want a full meal the filet is terrific - rich and plenty. The foi gras is sublime and the caviar of course is all it ought to be. The service is respectful and inobtrusive. The ambience was quiet and elegant. One feels as though the city is far away even though one is basically in the theatre district."

  • "I have dined here 10+ times. The food was good, as always, but the service wasn't. I had made a reservation for a party of 6 and needed to increase it, twice, because more guests could join us for a special event. By phone, the hostess was rude to me and later very rude to my fiance. Apparently, we were inconveniencing her by choosing to dine at Petrossian, which is usally empty. Once we arrived, the waiters (not the maitre d') were rude to our guests. This had never bothered me before (I think the snarkiness is quite funny when the manager of the boutique doesn't realize sturgeon is a family of fish and tries to correct me), but it is what it is. The grand-daughter of Petrossian is very kind and gracious. I wish the staff were as warm."

  • "I have been passing Petrossian on my way home for many years now and always wanted to eat there. Restaurant week was the perfect opportunity and I'm very please with the outcome. The food and service were very good! Nice selectipn of wines. We had the caviar appetizer which cost extra but was well worth it. For main course we had Beef short rib and Char, both very good. This one is definitely a keeper!"

  • "This place is great. Food and service is excellent. The three stars for service (still good, but not excellent) has to do with the the way they handled our coats and coat check and not at all the food. This is really a great place and I strongly recommend it."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "There's something about the ambience of Petrossian that makes dining there special. It's a combination of the architecture of the building it's in, the luxurious, warm decor of the room, and of course, the excellent ingredients (caviar, smoked salmon, foie gras) available to their chef in concocting the always delicious dishes on offer. There were generous portions for our RW lunch, with with at least three choices for each course. The service was efficient and attentive. Will always return---even without RW!"
