Rue 57 not just for touristIt looks like a tourist spot, but I really like it for a business lunch.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience!Having been here many times, the food and service are always exceptional. Superb breakfast , especially the blueberry pancakes. Don't bypass this gem.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect again!I have only done brunch here each time I have eaten at Rue 57 and it's always perfect! If you like French Toast, there may not be any better. Definitely a must in NYC! Thanks again Rue 57!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific MealThis is the 3rd or 4th time I’ve dined at Rue 57, and I’ve never been disappointed. I’m not a foodie, so I can’t say much about the type of cuisine, however, everything I’ve had has been nicely prepared, meats cooked exactly as ordered, and the presentation is attractive without being fussy. Pricing is in line with the other fine restaurants in the New York City, with Rue 57 being moderate, rather than most expensive.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall Great ExperienceI took my Mom here for a special dinner before a Broadway show. Everyone from the hostess who sat us at a great table to the server who was friendly and helpful to the attentive table bussers offered fantastic service. The food and specialty cocktails were delicious with nice presentation. Overall, this restaurant blew me away and exceeded my expectations! I will go back.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent LunchOur waiter must have been between Broadway shows - he was that entertaining. The food was excellent.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebrationThis restaurant was recommended to us by a friend and although the food was very good, the service excellent I found it to be a little too noisy, seemed like there were two different music tracks on at the same time. We had had a long day, seen a show then had the meal so maybe we were just a little too tired!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent all the way aroundExcellent all the way around (but expect to pay New York prices).5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMfun but too noisygiven all the people and the movement, do we really need overhead 'music' too?5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinner; Amazing WaiterWe dined here on Thursday night and had one of the best waiters we have ever had.....Steven.

I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it very much. The food and service were great, and the overall night was great!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMStill good as everHave been to Rue 57 almost every trip to NYC. Ambience is great, the food great, and very good service. The Fench Onion soup was wonderful, and the Kobe meat loaf was unique and a wonderful treat on a cool, damp evening. Will definitely return next visit to NYC4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFfour friends in NYC (comingFfour friends in NYC (coming in from CT, GA, SC) for a fun ladies' weekend had the very best time, drinks, and food here. We've been here before and returned just because it's always great. Our waiter, Akil, was fantastic! The Sea Bas was truly excellent.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI went with my two collegeI went with my two college age sons. I have been there before - service is very good - not outstanding - but attentive. Food was excellent. Had the scallops - so did one of my sons - we both thought one of best prepared and tasting scallop dinners we have had. My other son had a pasta disk - also very good. Caesar Salads also very good. Desserts we very good as well. We asked for the bar tender to make up a special drink for us after describing it and he hit it on the mark. As I said I have been there before and would go back again. A bit noisy.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place! Filet was greatNice place! Filet was great chicken Milanese was not.

A bit expensive, but a nice experience.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAt first, sounded like anAt first, sounded like an oxymoron--a Paris Brasserie with Sushi!! But for me, the sushi was just a small area away from the main, bustling Brasserie part of the restaurant. Quite noisy (as are the true Paris Brasseries) but true to form. Having lived in Paris for many years, I found the food to be comparable to some of the best Parisian ones. The service was excellent, delivery was prompt but not too rushed. Good wine list as well. Overall quite pricey, but certainly worth the visit.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat French BrasserieI always love Rue 57 for a casual fun dinner. The place is always hopping and the food is always delicious. I am big fan of the Pom Frites with Au Poivre sauce. Fattening but good.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile the menu was quite limited,While the menu was quite limited, my friends and I all ordered the Sea Bass which we agreed is the best Sea Bass we've had in the city. The wait staff was very attentive and the deserts were large and filling and quite tasty. The noise level was high and the sidewalk dining was open which led to more noise from the street. It was a fun environment.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunch!We were seated very quickly because of our reservation.

Perfect for groups of friends or families or first dates even. It's vibrant, lively crowd is perfect for large groups, girl's night, guy's night, but it's also lots of fun for couples (as long as they're not looking for a romantic quiet evening). Love the window seats for people watching. Sushi is very good and fresh. The Miso glazed chilean sea bass is the most delicious dish. Great drinks too!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat except WAY too noisy.Great except WAY too noisy. And table was cramped.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMReally fun. Great attentionReally fun.

We were seated immediately and our waitress happily answered all of our many questions regarding menu items. She was able to give us an input on everything and really guided us to having a wonderful dining experience.
The food here was absolutely delicious as well. The salmon home fries is to die for.

Excellent presentation and outstanding flavor! Well Done, Rue 57!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic atmosphere and great foodMy husband and I dined here on our last night in the city and I'm glad we did. The ambiance was nice and romantic, with the lights turned down low. The servers are very attentive and the service was pretty quick. I loved that I could make a reservation online and get seated immediately after we walked in. I would dine at Rue 57 again on our next visit.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSalmon dish...excellentThis was our fifth visit to Rue 57...always on our list when we visit NYC. Great find.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWas not so sure about RueWas not so sure about Rue 57 when I booked the table, but the service was great, food was delicious and we had a wonderful experience. I will be back.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe revisited Rue 57 afterWe revisited Rue 57 after many years. The food was awesome. So consistently good. The roasted chicken was seasoned well and juicy. The skirt steak was cooked perfectly and flavorful. Very delicious! The steak tartar and mussels were classic and yummy. My hubby and I were amazed how good this place continued to be! Highly recommend!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for Sunday brunchWent for Sunday brunch. Food was very good, service food. Upstairs dinning room was crowded and loud. Downstairs where we say was less energetic and fine ambiance. Better option to avoid the gaze of those waiting for tables and the noise.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely worth a visit!This was our first visit and we loved it! I had the Dover sole (which you can't often find) and it was prepared perfectly! My husband had Duck L'Orange (which was a dinner special) and he loved it! We ordered the Pecan pie for dessert and it came as a whole pie approx 4"in diameter with a scoop of homemade maple ice cream ... Enough to feed 3. Prices were reasonable for NYC. I would highly recommend it if you like well prepared food.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy daughter and I ate at RueMy daughter and I ate at Rue 57 twice during our trip to New York City. It was located close to our hotel and both nights we were able to secure a table at the time we wanted.
The portions were generous and delicious, the service excellent. The decor is classic New York bistro and the bar looked like it would be a fun place to hang out at with friends. We didn't feel rushed during our meal and the staff was attentive with out being over bearing (I'm tired of the constant "how is your meal?" at some other establishments; to the point where you feel as if they are needy and requiring vindication that their food is good).
I would definately recommend Rue 57.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have dined here severalWe have dined here several times and would recommend this restaurant.3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMdependably gooda favorite place after carnegie hall concerts. great oysters and french bistro food, delightful service.2/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI really enjoyed my time atI really enjoyed my time at RUE 57.
