    I hate to see them close and move. but since I live downtown they will soon be much closer. This is one of the few restaurants that I would ever travel above 23rd Street to dine at! Awesome food and great wine list!

    We had lunch there as a farewell to this lovely restaurant, which closes its doors after tonight's dinner. It will be a sad loss for the upper East side. They will reopen in a few months, we hear, but we still don't know where. We will follow them wherever they are.

    We found this place through an internet search, it was just round the corner from our hotel and we were glad to be able to try it because it was going to close temporarily and move downtown. The interior design is beautiful, modern and yet warm in natural colours. Service was lovely and informed. We didn't know about the principle of SPE but we are interested in healthy eating and enjoyed our meal thoroughly. I had the aubergine tartare which was a bit mustardy but my ricotta gnocchi were absolutely delicious. We were worried about the dessert suggestions in the context of healthy food but were relieved to see chocolate and ice cream on the menu. I had the 7 layer chocolate cake and my husband the Baked Alaska which were both delicious.

    I am never disappointed by Rouge Tomate. The service is one of the best in the city. The staff is all friendly, attentive and very knowledgeable. The food is beyond incredible, as are the cocktails, all made with the freshest, purest ingredients. You'll never find a better wine list. What more could one ask for in an upscale, New York City dining experience? I am so sad this location is closing. Dine here before their last service in Midtown East!

    We love Rouge Tomate and are so disappointed that they closed and are moving down to Chelsea. They told us they'd be closed for a year or longer...ouch! We highly recommend this restaurant, and desperately hope that the new place is no louder than the place on 60th was. It was so perfect. Not only the food was great (farm to table style), but the tables were far enough apart that you could hear the person across from you with no difficulty at all, which is somewhat unusual in Manhattan. Try the new place when it opens, if you've never been -- the food's great and the service is terrific.

    We went as a group of 3 for a long lunch. The menu was good but not great and the service was OK. When I asked the waiter to talk me through the menu he said - "what do you want to know? We are moving from this location and these were our most popular dishes from the past few years." Hmm... That being said the food was very tasty, the presentation beautiful and the wine list varied.

    Had dinner here late on a stormy Wednesday night. The staff was incredibly helpful with my drenched clothes and bag. The food was amazing- both the vegetables and the meat/fish were stars of the dishes. The sauces were delicious and the dishes were so colorful! Highly recommend the walu, duck, and octopus.

    Coming to this restaurant it was certainly out of the price range of what I would normally pay for a meal. That being said I was hoping to find a place to have a bit of a "splurge meal" for my vacation, and I am so glad I chose the Rouge Tomate. The duck was one of the best things I've ever eaten, so much so I'm not sure how I will ever cook for myself again. Also my server was wonderful! I was nervous service would be a little snotty and I would feel out of place, however she did a fantastic job mixing professionalism and fun. 10/10 would go again (once I save up a little more...).

    We arrived a little early but this was no problem and we were seated straight away. All of the staff were friendly and attentive. The menu choice is small but there is something for everyone on there. We had 3 courses and the complimentary focaccia had a great fresh flavour. Our starters (greenmarket tomato and the blue crab) came pretty quickly, they looked so simple on the plate yet were full of flavour and a nice size portion for a starter so that you were still looking forward to your main meal. I had the scallops and they were cooked to perfection and my husband had the duck (which was a little smaller than expected) but tasty all the same. Of course we had pudding sorbet and the 7 layer chocolate box - Delicious! Would recommend!!

    I had heard the food at Rouge Tomate was fresh and full of unusual combinations and the restaurant more than lived up to my expectations. We shared an appetizer of heirloom tomatoes and watermelon, which was quite good. Then we each had poached halibut, which was garnished with an abundant serving of julienned strawberries and vegetables. The halibut was perfectly cooked, fresh and juicy, and when combined with the strawberries and veggies was absolutely delicious. I can't wait to return to try other menu items.
