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

- All but one of the big C'sOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 11/25/2014Champagne! Caviar! Only the best quality here. But where's the Chocolate? None on the dessert menu. The food is superb, served with the finest attention. Don't miss the seared foie gras. Nowhere else can you find blinis and salmon roe of this quality. The Dover sole meuniere was exquisite as was the lobster risotto. Add the chocolate and it would be perfect.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Overpriced and oldAlexooliVIPDined on 11/22/2014I went here for brunch for a decadent New York experience . While the neighboring bakery is cute and the building outside is beautiful, the restaurant is shabby inside and looks like the decor has not been updated since the 80s. The overpriced prix fix brunch menu contained some good options and my pancakes were good however my crab cakes were small and served on top of a sour/garlic sauce that was not to my taste. My friends poached pear and blue cheese salad and eggs Benedict looked better, however in a city filled with excellent brunch this did not stand out. For a total of $50 each I was unimpressed overall. I will say the servers were attentive but not annoying which was pleasant . We did not try the caviar or foie gras for which they are famous and perhaps we missed out. I will not be going back either way.
- DisappointedjoanieVIPDined on 11/15/2014We have eaten here before and not been disappointed but this last experience was very, very disappointing. The sole is fantastic which my husband had but shame on the chef for serving a thin, a little over 1/4 inch, grisly and impossible to chew New York steak
- As always, elegant and excellentRonLDined on 11/15/2014Our oasis from the loud... If you are looking for an elegant table and a quiet place to enjoy, this is your place. Russian specialties, great range of caviar options. Superb service. A very relaxing place where you can savor an afternoon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Caviar Hotspot!MichaelGVIPDined on 11/9/2014Conveniently located close to Central Park, this gem of a restaurant is a must visit if you are in the mood for caviar. The staff was extremely attentive and helpful in our selection of the briny treat. The full caviar service was excellent, made even better by the ice-chilled Russian vodka recommended by our server. Our diver scallops were enhanced by the addition of flavorful morel mushrooms, a wild treat I haven't enjoyed since my Midwestern childhood. The bartender, noticing our admiration of the decor, was proud to share the history of the stunning Erte mirrors backing the well-stocked bar. Be prepared to pay for the treat, but it is worth every penny!Special Features:
- If You Love Caviar...CpopsDined on 11/9/2014I returned here after my first visit 25 years ago with the fond impression it made on me then. Though the opulence may have dimmed a bit, I enjoyed this visit as much as the last. Excellent service on the finest china, silver, and crystal complemented the delicious delicacies Petrossian is famous for. Imported Caviars and smoked fishes all washed down with icy cold Russian vodka added to the overall experience. The three course Prix Fixe brunch was far above the usual Sunday fare, plentiful and well priced at $38 per person, with caviar added at a reasonable upcharge. Overall, it was well worth the money and the old and young among us enjoyed it equally. Be careful though, fueled by many vodka shots for themselves and other tables plus numerous tins of the finest caviars and slabs of the best smoked salmon and blinis, the party of three next to us ran up a bill in excess of $3000! Nice to be around the beautiful people.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SpecialQueenMabDined on 11/1/2014Great food. I have loved this place since I am 20...over 27 years ago! Impressive for guestsSpecial Features:
- A little bit disappointingLindaVIPDined on 10/25/2014Went for caviar and foie gras expected a little more of a vibrant atmosphere on a Saturday night. Service was a little stuffy and not friendly at all. Very old-school and not in a good way. Next time I'll look for my caviar and foie gras somewhere else
- Poor servicedineoutalot5Dined on 10/25/2014The restaurant is dated and in desperate need of an upgrade. The food was okay but the service was terrible. Bread was forgotten and glasses remained unfilled. We told the manager who was present but clearly was not providing oversight to the staff.
- Bravo Petrossianmikez1VIPDined on 10/24/2014we have been to this restaurant many times and its always very good, at least 4 star food.. Friday we went again and ordered Dover Sole with Cavier, smoked salmon seared Fois Gras, and Steak Tartare. The restaurant is known for its delicacies These four dishes were each the best rendition of these my wife and I have ever hadSpecial Features:
- Feels a bit stodgyMarlenedcVIPDined on 10/16/2014Stunning to see the grade pending sign on the door, and we all wondered why? The lobster roll for lunch with asparagus soup was pleasant but missing lobster, only a few pieces with a lot of filler for $24. The salmon sampler was not generous, a few pieces with a lump of red caviar, but friends said it was tasty. The service was surprisingly poor with so few diners in the restaurant. No one ever came to refill our water glasses. Prices are high considering portion size and service. The place feels dated and touristy.
- Mediocrefrancisco2prVIPDined on 9/14/2014The food at Petrossian was mediocre, not what I expected, such as the caviar being served with so called toast points that would have been better suited for a club sandwich but not to be served with caviar. The dover sole was also not very good. Very disappointing. Never again.
- Great New York RestaurantOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/13/2014A really good find in Mid-Town Manhattan. We enjoy walking there from our different hotels that we frequent.Special Features:
- Pre-theater, very quietunusuallyfairDined on 9/13/2014I have been a fan of Petrossian over many years. It was disappointing to find the staff now is much less polished, tho still attentive and friendly, and the entire restaurant empty when we arrived. It was a little awkward, and the poor choice of pop tunes playing loudly was completely incongruent. I regret to say that was probably my last visit.Special Features:

- SpecialSandyVIPDined on 8/22/2014Always a special experience. I will say the same song played over and over again over the sound system which was annoyingSpecial Features:
- JilandreDined on 8/18/2014One wonders if Petrossian is going to be around, given their casual approach to answering their phones and the attitude of the help... notably the women servers, who seen to be disinterested and not very professional. The meal was quite good, but very over priced!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice brunchLMLNYCDined on 8/17/2014The Brunch at Petrossian is great value for money! A three course gourmet meal at $38 is hard to find. Food was excellent, creative and tasty. Place it self is a bit cold, not too many customers. Perhaps an August Sunday was the wrong time. Regardless, do your self a favor and try it!Special Features:
- Elegant, old-world atmospherenycvisitorDined on 8/16/2014There is an almost courtly feel to the service and ambiance at Petrossian -- sort of from another era, and most welcome. The servers are quiet, professional, and efficient (none of the "Hi, my name is Scott and I'll be your server tonight!" stuff). The food is wonderful, and while Petrossian's menu is a bit old-fashioned, it can't be beat for smoked fish and caviar. The Lalique glass and beautiful granite, not to mention the diagonal bar, all contribute to a great dining experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

Its location is ideal, the decor and ambience encourage relaxed dining, the food is delicious and elegantly presented, and the service is unfailingly gracious and attentive. We recommend Petrossian highly to our friends and to everyone else.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- NEGATIVECUSTOMERDined on 8/15/2014NEVER EVER GO TO PETROSSIAN DURING RESTAURANT WEEK OF NEW YORK. FOOD IS MADE OUT OF CHEAP INGREDIENTS AND CAN BE QUALIFIED AS EDIBLE BUT NOTHING ELSE. WAITER WAS INFORMED ABOUT IT BUT JUST DISAPPEARED. HOSTESS WAS VERY NICE
- No a good experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 8/14/2014We found them to be very inflexible for a high end restaurant. They refused requests for minor changes to menu items. When told my wife did not like her dinner, they were indifferent. Our friend was allergic to nuts. It was a garnish and retrospectively it appeared nuts were added just prior to serving. Consequently she settled for the ice cream. Restaurant week or not, we will not be going back.
- It was deliciousgrandmaVIPDined on 8/14/2014We went on restaurant week and it is a beautiful place and quiet which is hard to find. We enjoyed the food and the ambiance. I think it is a little pricey if it's not restaurant week.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice TimeOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 8/13/2014My friends and I had a great time. The food was delicious and the service was very nice. I would go again if I had friends in town. Thank you for a great lunch.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- FantasticIraJayDined on 8/12/2014I hadn't eaten there in years. It was better than ever, they were very generous with portions, I don't understand why this classic isn't ranked higher. Underrated, a truly top NYC restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Disappointing quality; good caviarTennisLoverDined on 8/10/2014We went during NYC restaurant week. The entrees were sorry excuses for a main meal. The steak was flimsy and tasteless; the sturgeon was expensive and lacking flavor. Caviar was good; dessert was delicious. Go only for caviar and dessert -- avoid everything else.
- Fantastic for entertaining guestsOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/9/2014Excellent service, truly, very accommodating to late arrivals in our group and attentive to any needs at the table without being asked. The brunch menu offered a variety of options and was deliciously satisfying.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Petrossian is an Excellent Rest.sammo3000VIPDined on 8/8/2014I enjoyed with my friend at Petrossian during the Restaurant Week. This place is legendary, elegant, grand and romantic ~~~ and worth it. The food are delicious and high quality. Definitely should try their most famous caviar. We will go back soon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Iconic Bulding with poor restaurantOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 8/7/2014I always wanted to go to the restaurant in this NYC landmark. From the outside it looks like a real classy restaurant but the food and service significantly underdelivers. The preparation lags inspiration and the flavors are very poorly matched. The mackerel was over slated and the fishy taste was overbearing. Overall a big disappointment and especially in NYC don’t waste your time and money there since there is an abundance of excellent restaurant.
- Ordinary food, poor serviceDungustanDined on 8/7/2014I had lunch here during restaurant week. To begin with, the hostess was busy chatting with two other guests who were leaving and did not even acknowledge me. Another lady walked in and the hostess was about to see to her when the lady kindly pointed out that I had been waiting there first so I was finally seen to and shown to my table. (Perhaps as I'm Asian, she did not think it worth her while to attend to me.) My husband and I both had the smoked salmon as a starter, I had the duck for my main and my husband had the steak. The smoked salmon was ordinary, the duck was dry and the steak so so. For dessert, I had the carrot cheesecake which was the only good dish. Waiting staff were very brusque and not courteous. Conclusion: Avoid
- LovelylovetoeatVIPDined on 8/7/2014We had a lovely lunch during Restaurant Week. The food was very good, prepared nicely, and a number of choices were offered. We recommend the restaurant both for restaurant week and at other times.Special Features:
