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.

    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!

    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.

    Dined on 3/8/2014
    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!

    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!

    I had always passed this place up, thinking it was just for caviar, which I like only occasionally and in very small amounts. Restaurant Week, and personal business nearby that day, were the stimuli to give it a shot. I was very pleasantly surprised. Perfect smoked salmon with dill, then crisp-skinned Arctic char,, with a artichoke-containing vegetable medley. I saved a little pinot grigio to wash down the sweet pineapple cake. Even the rolls were fantastic. Now definitely a good option on Carnegie Hall days. And blue jeans and a plaid shirt were not a problem.

    Coming inside the beautiful building, we had expected better service from this fancy restaurant. While there were more than 70% tables still available, our table of 5 got seated next to the kitchen door. New people were seated at the inside tables. Service was mediocre, and non attentive, with the annoyance of bumping into one of us coming in / out of the table. Especially with hot soups that they have to hand hold instead of using a tray. Food matched what was expected but did not wow us to want to come back or to pay their full price for.

    Our first experience ever, we tried Petrossian during restaurant week and were very happy we did. The restaurant is lovely,, the food is excellent, the service was attentive, professional yet welcoming and pleasant. Since it was a late after-the-theatre dinner, we cannot comment on the bar scene or lunch/brunch but would have no hesitancy in going anytime.

    I used to rate Petrossian outstanding, but the grumpy hostess who took our coats at the door and the less attentive waiters than I remember made the experience a little less special this time. Granted, it was late, we were one of 2 tables left and we were taking our time, but I couldn't help noticing they were dying for us to leave - not what you want from a $320 dinner for two. It's an intimate beautiful room that says "old New York" and I would still recommend it for an elegant champagne and caviar brunch treat, but I'll never go again for dinner.

    We went during the restaurant week. As many other reviewers said before, food was good. Service was very week, we felt we are in Europe of 10 years ago, where the waiters are proud to ignore those annoying tourists. Another detail worth mentioning is that the restaurant week menu was not really what we were offered in the restaurant. The place chose to follow their regular pre-fix menu which had supplement charges. So, go at your own risk and expect surprises on your bill.
