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.

    Not only did I have high expectations, but Rotisserie Georgette iced those expectations and added a few sparkler candles on top. Was a terrific meal, staff was friendly and gracious, and the food - the food! - divine all around.

    My friend and I had lunch prior to a Saturday matinee. I had read a favorable review in the New Yorker magazine. We both had the Poulet Frites because we like chicken and felt that this would be the best dish on the menu - were we wrong! The chicken was mediocre (and salty) and the French fries were so over-salted that we had to send them back. There was no salt or pepper on the table, so I guess they know that its never needed. The accompanying salad was just a handful of mixed greens (that you can get out of bag) with a little light tasteless dressing. Even the bread was poor. This dish was $29. The service and ambiance were very good, so my overall rating is for food.

    Having read about the new opening of Rotisserie Georgette in the New Yorker, we decided to try it out for lunch because we were staying close to the hotel! Everything was excellent!! The chicken and the potatoes were over the top! Wonderful and flavorful and done to perfection. The service was excellent and if you go at lunch and want to try their tart tatin, you need to request it in advance because it normally just is on the evening menu. We missed out but saw it served and it looked spectacular!

    Georgette Farkus has really opened a gem here. Coming from working with Boulud, she clearly knows what she is doing. Fantastic food and chicken prepared like I have never tried before. The potatoes (in fact, all the sides) are mouth-watering. And to boot, the waitstaff is top notch, happy and truly enjoyable.

    The Poule de luxe and the rotisserie chicken are so divine, and the ever changing sides so yummy, that we break our vow to try the other items on the menu every time we go to Rotisserie Georgette. Georgette is a wonderful host, the place is humming, and the wine list always impresses with unusual, well thought out finds.

    The prices are rather high. We had 3 different chicken dishes at the table and quite frankly we were underwhelmed, especially when considering the prices. The roasted lamb dish was disappointing, it should have melted in my mouth. It was chewy, Service is amazing.

    The food was very good and the service excellent. Something I do not like, however, is their cancellation policy. You must give a credit card when making a reservation and if you do not cancel within 24 hours, you are charged $50 per person. We were a party of 4, so if we had had to cancel at the last minute, it would have been a $200 charge. Reminds me of the airlines! ThAt alone may keep me from returning.

    pleasant, somewhat surprising space, expected something like a bistro but it was more of a genteel parlour Not what you call a foodie but I thought it very good, liked the souffle very much because it was just the right size - with great truffles - and not one of those large bowls Service very good at every level, felt very comfortable, what I would call solid at every level

    Georgette was recommended by friends. We are from out of town and wanted a mid-town place that was not "busy-busy". It fit the bill exactly. Although full, it was never loud or distracting. Service was excellent and the food was better. The rotisserie format was not limiting; we had great salads and appetizers; and the entrees were exquisite. Highly recommend!

    The fois gras poele was fabulous and worth every penny, the fries were the best I have had since Paris and the chicken was, indeed, perfectly roasted. One small minus: the chicken itself wasn't super tasty. I read that the birds come from Pennsylvania, but given the care in the roasting, the chickens themselves could have brought more to the table.

    This is a very expensive restaurant, especially for the items being served. The Roasted Chicken was wonderful (half a chicken $24), Lamb Loin was good but not exceptional ($32), and Rotisserie Potatoes very good ($8). G's Salad was good ($16). Ambiance is nice. Worth a visit, but doubt that we will return. Service was good. A very nice wine list. People are dressed from very casual to business casual. You can order online for a picnic or pick-up.

    We ate at Rotisserie Georgette the first Saturday it was open for lunch. It was wonderful - we congratulated both Georgette and the chef. We returned three or four times in rapid succession and loved every bite of the roast chicken and other tasty dishes. After several months, we booked a table last evening and what a disappointment. The chicken was overcooked, the service was ordinary and it was all overpriced - 1/2 roast chicken each, 2 starters (1 tomato tarte, 1 farro) 1 bottle of Provencal Rose (the only Provencal on the wine list): $210 with tip!!! Sorry to lose a former favorite in our neighborhood.

    As I entered the door, I was welcomed by amazing service. The waiter offered excellent suggestions, and we did not have to wait long for the waiter to ever circle back and ask if we needed anything. As for the ambiance, it was outstanding as well. There was plenty of people inside, and while it was energetic, it was never noisy. The food was excellent. The Poulet Roti avec Jus Provençe was excellent and moist. The Chocolate Trio, enjoyed with coffee, was the highlight of the meal for me. It was an excellent meal.

    Loved the gazpacho and the pear salad the chicken was not as good as my first time at Georgette 's it was a little small a little dry and miniscule amount of stuffing. In a word disappointing. I do like the atmosphere. Maybe it was too late in the evening. I will try it again...

    Although the menu is limited, they had 2 special, roast duck, and striped sea bass. Four of us shared the duck, the bass, and their whole chicken house special. Everything was delicious !!, even the sides were great. A bit on the expensive side, but portions are quite generous. We simply couldn't finish everything. Would definitely go back.

    This was my second visit to Rotisserie Georgette, and it proved why I wished to return--the signature dish is without question the finest chicken I have ever eaten: moist, flavorful, and finished just right. The pommes frites are perfectly prepared and seasoned; the roasted potatoes are sublime. Although not inexpensive, this is my new favorite restaurant in all of NYC.

    Marcus was accommodating; he graciously offered alternative seating; noted preferences, and lent me his pen. The ambiance is relaxing, tables are spaced so one doesn't feel squeezed. Naturally, we ordered chicken. My lunch partner repeatedly praised her chicken salad. My roast chicken (with fries) was "melt-in-your-mouth" terrific. The salad perfect. The portion was sufficiently ample for me to take some home for a later treat The waitstaff was efficient and unobtrusive. Georgette stopped at our table to bus a dish, make a recommendation, and talk about the chicken farm. She was charming. We were delighted with our dining experience and felt it was well worth the price, which is in keeping with the upscale neighborhood.

    I thought both the concept and execution of Rostisserie Goergette were great. She is not trying to re-invent the wheel, rather she is doing great takes on classic dishes. The signature roast chicken was excellent, cooked perfectly. Sides, especially the fries were good. Georgette herself is excellent front of house. She is charming and gracious and made the meal that much more enjoyable.
