Totally worth going
Excellent food, attentive service. They have us a fabulous table when I mentioned in my request that my date was tall. Outdoor seating looked very nice. Great for a date. Romantic dining room. Will definitely go again.

Although I liked the food and the service, there were way too many people in the space. The noise level was high due to several large groups. I felt like there were too many tables packed into the space as well and from where I was sitting every time a waiter/person walked by they kept bumping into my chair.

Appetizers and entrees were fantastic. Service impeccable. A bit disappointed with desserts.

Oh my gd...
This place is amazing. It's been on my restaurant list for some time now and I'm so happy that I got to go! The drinks were a bit pricey, but I really enjoyed the cod. The s'mores dessert was to die for and I really want to go back there, preferably on a date but it's also great for a group of friends.

It couldn't have been a better experience from the food to the service to the ambience. We loved every minute of the evening!

Family friendly dinner
It's rare to find that good restaurant with the requisite ambiance, food and service in a neighborhood not known for being family friendly. We had a 6 yr old and a 3 mth old along with 4 adults, and the staff could not have been more accommodating. We never felt rushed, the wait staff went out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable, and yes, the food was really good - so much so that we were too stuffed to have dessert. Next time, we promise to save room.
In short. Adults had a great time. Kids too. What more can one ask for?

Can I go back tomorrow?
Took my boyfriend out to see Blue Man group and went here first. Started with drinks at the bar. The drinks are intricate so they took a little time per person to make however they were worth the wait! Dinner was Divine! I had the pork chop. Had to fight off my boyfriend from taking the plate. He had the seafood pasta dish, also delicious. I could have done without the side of Brussels sprouts he had ordered but they were also awesome. I would go back to celebrate any special event for dinner or drinks!

My coworkers and I enjoyed our dinner here, the atmosphere was great as were the cocktails and food. I loved the scallops, poached egg and the Chicken liver pate. The service could have been a little better as our busser seemed kind of confused and our appetizers came before we got our drinks. This was not a big deal but something they could button up a little more.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The vibe is simply outstanding. The place was packed and it was still the middle of the week. The service was most attentive and the food was most appetizing. Though the menu was not as extensive, the items on service were really A+. The bar at the back was most lively and is the go-to place to hangout. The drinks are exceptional and appealingly potent! Luv it!

A superb dining experience, with an incredible cocktail list & bartender...

My favorite NY restaurant
So good. Everything. I've been fortunate to come here with a larger group (and share a ton of plates), and smaller groups. Both in the winter & summer. I've never had a bad plate here. In fact, everything is excellent. Those mushroom pots are amazing. Last year, there was an asparagus & holandaise sauce sort of dish during summer that was the best thing I've ever tasted (sad it wasn't on menu this time around). Heirloom tomatoes and burrata! gnocchi -yum! Ever last dish I've ever tried at this place is good. Each time I dine. (which I don't think I can say about many restaurants). Service is good and the music is always great. The decor is relaxing and very stylish. The restaurant always has a good crowd and good atmosphere.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great, the people were lovely and it was a fun experience. The restaurant had been recommended to me and it didn't disappoint at all. There is a very varied menu, so you can go with a group. there is something for everyone.

Went for my anniversary
Went to Saxon + Parole for my anniversary.
The food was delicious (make sure you try those pots!) and the staff were simply brilliant.
Most importantly, my special requests were fulfilled to a tee (and then some)
I was delighted.

Summer in the City
We took an outside FourTop and had a great time with drinks and dinner, all the while enjoying everything great about NYC on a summer night. Additionally, the service was great. Our waitress even passed on the recipe for the caramelized brussels sprouts (terrific/don't miss). All presentations looked great and promised a satisfying dining experience. Definitely worth the trip from Exit 70/LIE.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
fun night out
big space so good for groups. food was surprisingly good, our group ordered a lot of plates to share and everything was great! nice cocktails and wine too.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I dined at Saxon + Parole during my last visit to NYC based on a recommendation from a friend that lives in LES. The restaurant did not disappoint. We arrived a little late for dinner (around 10:45pm) so most of the tables were empty, but the bar area was packed. Our server was very friendly and helpful with the menu. Drinks were served promptly and the food (apps & mains) was brought out surprisingly fast considering the complexity of the dishes. Everything we ordered was delicious. Hope to return to this restaurant during my next visit so that I can cross off a few more dishes on their fantastic menu.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had a mini high school reunion lunch with my brother and two other friends. Everything was really good. The bright and tasty refresher drinks were perfect for lunch. We all really enjoyed the restaurant and the food. It wasn't loud, the service was great, and on a sunny day it was nice and bright inside.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
amazing interior design
like all AvroKO places I've seen, this place is beautifully designed. the food was great. despite our server getting slammed, the service was still very good.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is pretty good, nice atmosphere. Have been here before and would return again.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food and drinks
Food and service were spectacular! Highly recommend the oysters, fried peppers, and the mushroom pot!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
delicious but pricey
Food was tastey and very nicely presented. Menu is limited but creative and well executed but $80 for lunch for 2 with one glass of wine each is a bit extravagent
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The bar itself is worth the trip to the Bowery - sophisticated, well-designed, amazing cocktails and great music. Even by NYC standards this is "a cut above". Dinner was fabulous - the highlight being the key lime semifreddo for dessert but the appetizers and wine list were also sensational. HIGHLY recommend Saxon & Parole!

You know the food is delicious upon walking into Saxon + Parole...delicious, flavorful, well-prepared...yum! Service was also attentive & prompt. Energetic environment, both at the bar & in the dining room!

Had a great time. Would reccomend
Took my wife to Saxon + Parole for her birthday and we were very happy with the food and thrilled with the service. We were grateful for a great table for the occasion, too. Would recommend and return.

Fantastic Evening @ Saxon & Parole
Visitng NYC we received a recommendation from a friend to dine at Saxon & Parole, and we weren't disappointed in the least. We enjoyed an amazing meal at the bar and felt the staff was welcoming and had great suggestions. We've already recommended this restaurant to others and definitely plan to return when we're back in New York. For a great meal and a fantastic evening you MUST go to Saxon and Parole!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
NICE NEIGHBORHOOD PLACE
I looked for a restaurant that was close to a gallery opening that my wife and this place seemed to fit the bill. I had the flank steak and my wife had the salmon. We split the green//avocado salad and the kitchen took care of the split without issues. Both meals were very good.... Funky donut desert was different and fun. Nice selection of bespoke drinks if you like that kind of thing. Good selection of wine-by-the-glass... Overall I liked this place and would return. Cheers!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Place--A Must Go
Excellent food, atmosphere, extremely creative bar tenders, best Manhattans---ever. A definite must for anyone that appreciates food and wine.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Without question, the menu here was above any restaurant we ve been to recently. The grilled octopus was perfect and smoky with an amazing range of textures. Adding lobster to the ricotta gnudi was perfection. The chocolate soufflé was alright but nothing to write home about. However the Manhattan was something to boast about. It is smooth and perfectly portioned so the second half of the drink chilling on the side ready for you when you are ready to top off. Overall, it was a memorable experience.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Totally excellent foot!
A bit noisy but the food was superb. Unique tastes that were out-of-this-world.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the vibe and decor of the restaurant. Great service. The menu was not extravagant but our order was executed very well and on point. I thought the Razor Clam Egg salad was exceptional as well as our dessert; we shared the doughnuts.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ya get what ya pay for!
Food was exceptionally good, well made and inventive. The tab was predictably high
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to the restaurant
We have been to the restaurant on three occasions. We have never been disappointed in terms of the quality of the food and the service. We will dine there again. The only negative observation we have is that the plates for the main courses were not hot enough to allow the meal to retain its heat.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing as always!
My fiancé and I have gone to Saxon and Parole to celebrate big dates in our relationship...Christmas, 6 Month Anniversary and now our Two Year Anniversary. Saxon amazes us every time we come back. The food was amazing and we took all the waiter's recommendations on drinks, appetizers and dessert. We used to always have the Chocolate soufflé, but this time took the waiter's decision and went with the smores...great choice! We will absolutely be visiting again.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall very good
This is a great little restaurant with a very creative and excellent cocktail menu. My husband and I shared the heirloom tomato and burrata salad (excellent) and the mushroom pot (outrageous). I ordered the bronzini which was seasoned and cooked perfectly. My husband ordered the bone-in strip steak rare which was lacking in flavor and chewy. We had a good creme brulee for dessert.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall Great Experience
Had an overall positive experience here last Monday night. The hostess and waitress were both excellent. I started with the carrot & ginger soup and my entree was ricotta gnudi - both amazing! My boyfriend ordered a variety of the oysters and the lamb dish, which he thought was very delicious. We split the smores dessert and it was so, so good. The cocktails were all creative and well done, also a good wine menu. My only complaint was that it was pretty loud and a little cramped (especially for a Monday night). If you're looking for a more quiet, low key, intimate, and romantic spot, I wouldn't go with this restaurant, but if you want more of a vibrant "scene" in a great neighborhood, with fantastic food, I'd recommend Saxon + Parole.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for the first time and had a wonderful meal. Service was outstanding--very helpful getting us to the 'must haves'. Had the mushroom pot, the marrow, the scallops and the brussels sprouts (DIVINE!). The bottled sparkling negronis are exceptional as well!!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service
We went to Saxon and Parole on the recommendation of a friend, as it was our first time in New York. What a wonderful experience. Both my husband and I had steak, which was cooked to perfection. Our server was superb, and had good recommendations for us throughout the meal. Their cocktail list is a bit hard to navigate through, as they have mostly original drinks on their cocktail list. However, our server was able to guide us through it and make suggestions based on our normal preferences.

My New Favorite NYC Restaurant
Saxon & Parole is a gem in the NY dining scene - my new favorite restaurant. The food is superb - you must have one of the jars, I recommend the one with the whisky jelly. The Scottish salmon was delicious, probably the best I've had outside of Scotland. The atmosphere is elegant and charming and the staff couldn't be nicer. It's great for business, a romantic dinner or girl's night out.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service
Just arrived from Australia and headed down to Saxon on a recommendation. Food was innovative and non-pretentious. A beautiful meal and outstanding service. A great first night in the city that never sleeps.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic menu. Simple but expertly delivered. Knowledgable and attentive wait staff. Good floor layout. A touch loud, but that's the Bowery on a Friday night... I will return and strongly recommend to friends.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food stands up to great decor
When we arrived the bar was very crowded but instead of fighting to get the bartenders attention a server came up to us and asked if we would like a drink. This was an unexpected pleasure. We were seated at a table for four in an area of the restaurant where there were several large parties and the noise was overwhelming. Our server immediately sent someone to speak with us who was very accommodating and found us a wonderful table in the wine cellar section of the restaurant. We all loved our appetizers and entrées would absolutely recommend this restaurant .

Great spot! Had a fun dinner with clients/ friends. Food was great and service was good as well.

Everyone must visit this restaurant
One of the best dining experiences I have had. I have been lucky enough to eat in many restaurants around the world and this rates up there as one of the best. It is not pretentious and stuff, but the food is of a quality that you would expect from a michelin star restaurant. It has a very funky relaxed atmosphere that makes you feel very welcome. The staff were were amazing, so friendly and knowledgable . Every part of this restaurant was fantastic but the stand out has to be the food. Unique combinations by a chef who obviously loves and understands food. I urge everyone to give this place a try if you are in New York, you will not be disappointed .
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved everything about this place. Amazing food, wine, cocktails and service. Id go back in a heartbeat!
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
We all had burgers
They were delishous, vibe was great in the restaurant. Our server was great, very knowledgable. Great night, would go again.
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cant wait to go back
Absolutely awesome - from oysters (fantastic) to gnuddi with lobster, scallops and arctic char (special) -- to s'mores and donuts for dessert, everything we had was delish!! Sommalier helpful, waitress very attentive but not on top of us, meal wasn't rushed, it was all perfect. We'll be back!!!
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
When I made my reservation on Open Table, I requested a nice private table near a fireplace. We were dining there because I found out they were voted one of the best 10 steak houses in NYC. The recommendation I have is to order the Hanger Steak. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were sat at not only a private table in the back of the restaurant off to the left side, but there were also candles lit in what used to be a fireplace next to our table! It was such a great meal and the restaurant had a very nice ambiance. It was a perfect dinner to celebrate me and my fiancé's recent engagement.
