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
  • "The food was excellent. Very nice ambience too. The waiters and staff very attentive. We did a pre-cinema dinner, and the waiters made sure we were not kept waiting and got out on time."

  • "I have been looking for the right restaurant for entertaining clients in the midtown/UES area. Noise and the close proximity of other tables is the biggest obstacle at many. Rotisserie Georgette had been recommended to me as a good place for a business lunch. Last week, I tried it and found it to be a gem: high ceilings, elegant but stylish, friendly and attentive staff, good people-watching. The menu is varied – including a delicious selection of salads. Helpings are generous. Most important to me, we could carry on a conversation. If talking on your cell phone during lunch is your routine, you will probably be happier elsewhere. It's just not the vibe here. Though I did see an IPad at the bar, which looks great for solo diners."

  • "In effect, Georgette is a white tablecloth version of a casual French bistro, in all the best ways. A good amd varied wine list, superb roast chicken, and roast potatoes to die for. Fairly priced, with professional and courtrous service."

  • "Chic Bistro with beautiful decor and special roast chicken"

  • "Receptionist, outstanding, for disabled assistance (my wife doesn't do stairs, and we were led through the back way). House pate, excellent. Rotisserie chicken, properly served with sauce on the side - but over salted and no better than my neighborhood Pio Pio, alas, where it's $12 a chicken. But the rotisserie potatoes were so good they made up for any deficiencies elsewhere, and the chocolate mousse was as good as any I've ever had. So I'll go back, but try some stuff other than the rotisserie chicken."

  • "Cocktails: wonderful and balanced lunch: they ran out of their signature pot pie, so I settled for the poultry and frites. tasty, but was really wanting that pot pie. I would call ahead and ask ahead for items on the menu before going."

  • "I ate here about 7 months ago when they first opened and it was as delicious then as it was this week! Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner and he loved the food. I had the lamb and he had the chicken (their most critically acclaimed entree). They service was excellent, the Sommelier helped us choose a bottle of wine that paired nicely with both our meals and our waiter was French and was kind enough to give me two restaurants in Paris to try out on my upcoming trip. All around awesome experience and I will definitely be returning soon."

  • "We went primarily because we love roast chicken. It was quite good but not exceptional. Even though the restUrant was not crowded at our 1:30 lunch, service was not great and main course arrived tepid. Dining room looks like they ran out of money before decorating was finished. It definitely lacks midtown polish."

  • "What a welcoming restaurant! Georgette was at the door to welcome us, and she checked in on us periodically throughout dinner. The food....wonderful green salad with a light lemon vinaigrette dressing to start. Amazingly crispy skinned-moist meat chicken for all 4 of us. Asparagus, yum as well. And lovely light delicate desserts. Brava Georgette!"

  • "The duck is excellent, among the best I've ever had. Flavorful, rich, with a crispy skin. The lamb and chicken were only "ok". Far from the quality of the duck, both were somewhat tough and underwhelming. The real dining zinger here is the wine list which is expensive even by Manhattan standards, particularly at a "medium" priced restaurant. While there are several glasses of wine for under 15 dollars, many (perhaps most) are 16 & up, with several over 20 dollar a pour. It seemed excessive and an unfortunate way to get the per seat cost to approach $100 (or exceed) with appetizers."

  • "Very special place. Great food, very nice service and a beautiful location. A gem in the UES."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "While there are other great restaurants in the area, this one is special. We had an unhurried lunch which was both simple and elegant. Our shared appetizer of smoked salmon was beautifully prepared and delicate. My guest had the G salad which was topped with the succulent roasted chicken while I had the day's fish special which was simply prepared and expertly cooked. The tables are nicely spaced which allowed for a quiet conversation and the server couldn't have been more pleasant. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Almost worth waiting for, server disinterested, manager busy fixing other problems after the luncheon rush @ 1:30 PM, then unable to get a check until the manager noticed us try to get the waiters attention. We were early for a 1:15 reservation and left at 2: 50, with less half the house filled."

  • "I expected a dinner like the one I had at l'Ami Louis last year. The prices were certainly similar but I must say the service here was much nicer. Bbt i don't need to come back.There are many better and more reasonable places for roast chicken."

  • "Georgette has excellent food and a well chosen wine list with a sommelier. I've been there twice, both times had a wonderful time. The service is outstanding."

  • "Much has been said about the chicken here but our server recommended the special for the night, duck a l'orange - and it was indeed very delicious! The atmosphere was nice and relaxed and not pretentious at all."

  • "YOU WILL BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND A BETTER ROAST CHICKEN ENTREE THAN THAT WHICH IS SERVED HERE. SIDES (ROASTED POTATOES AND MINT PEAS) WERE OUTSTANDING."

  • "Roasted chicken was overly salted, dried & so, so... Quite disappointed in general."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Food is to die for - the chef is fabulous! The service is exceptional, everyone worked as a team to make the experience wonderful. It's pricy, but perfect for a special occasion. We don't dine at places this nice often, but they do an awesome job at making you feel comfortable. Loved it! "

  • "I had a wonderful lunch on Saturday. This is a terrific find. The food is outstanding, the atmosphere and service are a perfect match."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We had the chicken salad, which was delicious--especially the roast chicken on top. Lovely place, excellent service, but once the room began to fill up the noise level was surprisingly high. Adding a bit of sound-suppressing drapes or some such would boost this to five stars in my book."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "From the moment we walked in to the time we left, we were impressed. The decor is wonderful and inviting. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The food - out of this world! The appetizers were delicious and not ordinary. The chicken was just as we hoped - moist and flavorful. We each had a different chicken and all of us were very happy. This is a restaurant that we will return to - many times."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "Food was excellent but service surprisingly poor for this grade of restaurant. A three-quarters full glass of sparkling water was topped up with tap water before the diner could react. Appetizers arrived in a timely manner, but sides appeared on our table unaccompanied by the entrees and sat there for some ten minutes and, when we asked for the entrees, were whisked away. Further confusion: our entrees were served to diners at the other end of the room and then, cooled down, offered to us. It was a fiasco, not worthy of either the kitchen's efforts or the price tag. After intervention by the maître d', the meal proceeded in proper form. We were comped unordered desserts but that was small solace for a less than great dining experience."

  • "This is a lovely setting with dining for all occasions. The owner is gracious and the staff is seamless. The food is superb. Try the lamb it is cooked to perfection. The sides are ample, creamed spinach is a must. The gnocchi is so tasty. Desserts are clearly created to amaze and delight! The owner's passion for detail from the silverware to the coffee creamer adds to the richness of the experience. "

  • "There is fashion,and there is style.Food trends come and go,restaurants are hot and then not, chefs blaze across the culinary firmament often just to fall back to earth,wings singed by the kitchen's flame.Then there are those who transcend the moment to create something timeless.That is style, and Chef Brauze achieves it.Simple, honest, straightforward treatment that highlights the subtleties of ingredients.Chicken, moist and tender under its crisp skin,a study in contrasts.Rotisserie potatoes, the same, only, potatoes! Lamb speaking of its terroir.White asparagus(My God,that white asparagus!)vegetal and ever so slightly bitter at the base but as you eat towards the blossom a floral note emerges.This is the work of a true master."

  • "Just an all around awesome spot. The food is stupendous, great meats coming out of the rotisserie - great french food in general without the stuffy atmosphere of most nicer french spots. HIGHLY RECOMMEND."

  • "Lovely all around. Careful service, good food--excellent choice of wines by the glass. We were ready to skip dessert, but the special of the day--chocolate madeleines--won us over. We will return."

  • "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 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."
