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.

    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.

    Rotisserie Georgette was delightful and delicious. I am one of those who places high value on the ability to roast a chicken to perfection and this was a beautiful example. My friend and I shared their specialty chicken with mushrooms under the skin and foie gras on top and it was divine! Service was lovely as was the ambience. The only downside was desert. We ordered sorbet and it was not on a par with the rest of the restaurant experience. I recommend it highly!

    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.

    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.

    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.
