A word from Rotisserie Georgette
The dining room combines casual comfort and sophistication with touches both rough-hewn and refined. The main attraction is the open kitchen’s rôtisserie ovens and their fine meats, poultry and fish turning over open flames. Abundant fresh vegetables, decadent potato dishes, heart-warming desserts, tempting cocktails & bites at the bar complete the picture. At lunch, we add generous main course salads and tempting pot pies, all in the spirit of Chef Chad Brauze's soul-satisfying French-American fare complemented by the warm welcome of your host, Georgette Farkas. The “ROTISSERIE TABLE” private room seats ten.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "This was the best chicken I have ever eaten. It was moist, tender and very flavourful. The staff were very pleasant and friendly and the surroundings attractive. I ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio and was very impressed that I was given some to sample before the full amount was poured. I have never had that experience when ordering a single glass before."

  • "The ambience was comfortable, the food was INCREDIBLE, the service was attentive and genial and the crowd was lively. Our dining experience at Rotisserie Georgette surpassed all our expectations (based on the excellent review we read in the New York Times) and will return on our next visit to the city. So surprising was how the kitchen could transform simple ingredients into a meal that can only be described as spectacular! We started with the white asparagus with a perfect hollandaise followed by duck a l'orange, chicken provencal, potatoes, spring peas and the carrots (Oh the carrots!). We had a ginger bourbon float and the Valrhona chocolate soufflé. Both brilliant! Georgette has put together a stellar team and a wining formula!"

  • "I really expected more here: but the only interesting food was the chicken. Everything else was greasy and overly salty . And there were things I ordered that were forgotten. The wine list was over priced and pretentious. So was the meal."

  • "I had dinner here with my fiancé and everything was incredible. We had the chicken for two along with carrots, potatoes and asparagus. Everything was cooked to perfection and tasted great."

  • "I didn't think that the food was anything to write home about. Honestly the $4.99 chicken from Costco is just as good if not better. Don't waste your money. There are plenty of more interesting restaurants in NYC."

  • "I had read about "Georgette" and wanted to take my fellow chicken loving friend for her birthday. The rotisserie chicken was juicy and delicious and the perfect pommes frites and salad the accompanied the meal were both yummy. For 29$ each, this meal was bon marche!! The manager , Sam, was delightful and made us feel welcome, treating us to coffee and dessert to make our celebration extra special. I did not like my table and tried to change, but none were available. Next time I will request a corner one. All in all, it was a lovely dining experience and I plan to go back soon!!!"

  • "Overpriced, noisy, and chicken and fries that were far from being special. No reason to recommend this resturant ti anyone for any reason."

  • "Pushy waiter tried to get us to order his favorite side. When we decided to go with our preferred side, he brought something completely different. The deluxe chicken for two is tasty and generous but way overpriced."

  • "Our table of three friends ordered the chicken salad, to be shared among us. We we avidly catching up on past experiences and present problems and triumphs when the salad was served. We also were served two other dishes at the same time. I kept routing around in the salad for pieces of chicken, but found only a few tidbits--some skin and a small piece. The salad had been on the table for awhile and I just thought that my friends had already eaten up all the chicken before I got to the salad. But afterwords, having left the restaurant, we all agreed that none of us had gotten any chicken. The most reasonable explanation was that the staff forgot to add the chicken before the salad was served to us. We were all really disappointed. :-("

  • "We ate at Rotisserie Georgette on Wednesday, April 2nd. The staff is engaging from hostess to bar tenders and waiters. The menu is excellent and has just the right amount of offerings without being overwhelming. We ordered the whole roasted chicken for two but were brought the de luxe, with foie gras. When we pointed out the mistake, we were compt'd the up-charge and kept the plate. Our spinach had a wonderful sauce on the side as did the roast chicken au jus. This was comfort food taken to a higher level.The restaurant was very busy which always makes you grateful for being fortunate to get a table. Will definitely look for another opportunity to return and recommend to friends."

  • "Someone managed to make chicken taste like a good steak, moist full of flavor. Service can be a bit more attentive I had to look for a waiter everytime I needed a drink Overall great experience, and for a change a friendly French Managment."

  • "I had high hopes for this restaurant, with Georgette's association with Daniel for so long. Unfortunately it seems all those years were for nothing. The service at this restaurant was atrocious, and I can only assume this is due to neglect. I was appalled and having to wave over a busboy, who onviosuly knew to keep his eyes to the floor, since my waiter was simply ignoring us. The chicken, which is apparently the must have item, was fine. Yes, just fine, and way too salty. The space is better suited to a private club, and wait a few months and it will be. This restaurant has zero chance for staying open for long. Go now if you want overpriced chicken, with a side of terrible service."

  • "The service was brisk and a bit rushed. They were waiting for our table to finish dinner. Chicken which is the speciality was overcooked . Need I say more!"

  • "Poor service from a waiter having a bad attitude. Wonderful service provided by the wine specialist who generally did his job too."

  • "We went for lunch when we got into town. We had the Poulet Frites with a salad. Both were perfectly prepared and very tasty. Traditional French prep. The decor and service were both very civilized. We will be back again."

  • "Had lunch here with a friend this week. Not cheap, but very good quality for the money. Rotisserie chicken is done perfectly and absolutely delicious. Pomme Frites were perfect and the rotisserie potatoes were also very good. Appetizers were gnocchi (very good) and leeks with duck "prosciutto" - also very good. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. The restaurant was very busy, but service did not suffer. Waiting at the bar, the service was a little slow - the only bartender seemed to be having some problems entering in lunch orders on the computer system, but he was very nice when he could break away."

  • "We went to Georgette because of the NY Times review extolling the chicken, and we were not disappointed. My wife loved the foie gras that accompanied it, and we both thought the side of rotisserie potatoes were exceptional. Unfortunately, the staff forgot to send the leftover potatoes home with the chicken. We also very much liked the leek and duck appetizer."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "disappointing. Appetizers were good, but chicken, which is their specialty, was ordinary and the spinach side was watery, without taste, and the pomme frites were ok, but nothing special. Service was good."

  • "Four friends and I finished off a long work week at Rotisserie Georgette, and it was an incredible night. Not only were we met with friendly service, but the owner herself came by our table several times to check how the meal was going. The food was a lovely traditional presentation, French rotisserie as the name would imply. Our favorites were the Duck a L'Orange, the lamb, the foie gras dacquoise, and the carrot side dish. We left absolutely stuffed, but dying to come back the next Friday."

  • "Actually I have been trying to dine here for months and although I was finally able to make a reservation for last Sunday night... I received a phone message the day before from the restaurant saying that they were not serving dinner that Sunday night. Oh well I guess I'll never get to eat their rotisserie chicken. My ratings and recommendation is based entirely on the fact that those boxes must be checked in order for this reply to be submitted...my ASSUMPTION is that the food would be very good. I have walked by the restaurant on several occasions and it is beautiful to look at from the outside."

  • "Food is fine but not extraordinary. Prices are high but not out of line for location. Pleasant room with equally pleasant staff. Some service issues still being worked out, but overall this is a comfortable neighborhood place for lunch or dinner."

  • "Was as good as the first if not better. Service is maturing and the food is terrific. We'll priced and well presented. Love it for business lunch, but will tKe my spouse soon to try dinner! The fish dishes are excellent."

  • "Fantastic food...the most delicious rotisserie chicken and french fries in New York City! Kudos to Georgette for brining comfort food to a whole new level!"

  • "This place feels like it has been here forever even though it's (I think) about a year old. Georgette handles the room with a long slit skirt (or was it a dress, I'm a guy, I don't know for sure!) Excellent meats and the kitchen is visible in the back. The place has a great look and an excellent clientele. All this blocks from the Apple Store, Revlon and Via Quadronno!! Love it. Recommended to many people already. I want this place to stay and stay and stay!!!"

  • "One of the most delicious rotisserie chickens I have ever had! Attentive and friendly service. Will definitely return for a wonderful lunch after museum going."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Very attentive and charming service but the chicken was not extraordinary and, at $29, too expensive. Two people ordered Poulet frites, a glass of wine, a cookie plate to share, and a coffee. The bill was $135. Not a good price/value ratio."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This restaurant might possibly be feeling its success a bit too much. The much-hyped roasted chicken (we went with the standard version) was good, but not outstanding or superlative in any way. To be fair, we were there at the very end of the evening, which might account for the somewhat dry breast meat. The service was very nice - attentive, courteous, light-hearted in a nice way. Unfortunately for me, this experience reinforces my general bias against ordering chicken in a restaurant. It’s so easy to do a great job at home."

  • "After living in France for several years, I can only say that this experience was slightly disappointing. The roast chicken was okay. The french fries were very good. The main course chicken salad consists of a small portion of chicken atop a generous portion of the usual mixture of leaves with one or two globs of a soft blue cheese and a few candied nuts. The nuts seem to be an American touch. I've never encountered sweetened nuts in a salad in France. Again, the salad was okay but not special in any way. The price of the lunch for two with wine (but no first courses) came to about $150. For that price, we could have had an amazing meal in Paris."

  • "Firstly I didn't think the food was good. Too much sauce and instead of setting it apart from other restaurants, it only makes the food taste mediocre. Ambiance its old and not cool. Way too upper east side of insecure followers rather than actual really trendy fun people Georgette, the owner, is indeed classy and an excellent hostess in every way Bad quality chicken too, even The nomad has better chicken quality"

  • "Wonderful apps and mains, would definitely go back. Skip the tarte tatin, though - it's strangely prepared and did not resemble a tarte tatin in any manner. The creme fraiche was also off, and despite my informing him of the numerous times in my life I'd had creme fraiche, the waiter insisted "it's supposed to taste like that" (without actually tasting it). To their credit, the restaurant did not charge us for the dessert."

  • "Delicious and stylish comfort food. Most delicious chicken ever! How do you make it so juicy? Made to feel right at home by the beautiful and charming namesake hostess. If I lived in this neighborhood I would eat here several times each week."
