Diner Reviews
  • "We were visiting NY and staying at the Peninsula. They recommended Rue 57 as it's only 2 blocks away. It's in a perfect location right on 6th avenue (and 57th, hence the name), and feels like a little cafe in Paris. There are a few tables outside but we chose to sit inside due to the heat. The service was great. We had the Grilled Cheese and fries. Sounds simple but it was SO good. We went back for brunch and it was just OK but definitely not bad, otherwise I'd rate 5 stars! Will definitely return."

  • "Lunch on July 4th, everything about it was fantastic, burger with truffle fries out of this world. Excellent service."

  • "Ordered the salade Nicoise with no eggs, got the eggs, which I removed as I didn't trust the kitchen - as I wanted no egg in my salad! Server served the salad with the eggs, and then recalled I had asked without the eggs - frankly, she appeared to be more attentive than that. So this is why the rating of only three stars - could have been 4..."

  • "I went with my gf for the first time for a dinner. Must say the shrimp tempura, dumplings and mini kobe burgers are a must have. Our service was great!!. We literally received our food 5 minutes after odering it and our waiters were very attentive to us. Great place to go with a date, friends or family. Will deft be going back!."

  • "the service was SO poor that I will not be back. Maybe it was just a fluke - I have had no complaints before - but it is not worth the chance. In a quality restaurant, there should not be good nights/bad nights or good food/bad food. Consistency is key."

  • "Early morning breakfast in New York City with all of the doors open was nearly outdoor dinning. It didn't hurt that Pierce Brosnan showed up for breakfast either. Excellent coffee, fine pastries and a breeze. Lovely"

  • "We were 8 at brunch and everyone was happy. The kids had small burgers and the adults had lots of choices. However, Bloody Mary's had to be sent back till they were right but small problem when all else was terrific."

  • "It's a bit too noisy but not unbearable. I wish there were a way to give a rating half-way between moderate and energetic!"

  • "Whenever in New York as a family we always have brunch at Rue 57. Unfortunately our overall experience was very disappointing. Service was poor and food was not at the usual standard. Our waiter was inattentive and did not seem to care when our food took 40 minutes to arrive. Not once did he inquire as to our needs or satisfaction. Our whole area seemed to be looking for our server."

  • "We enjoyed Rue 57 for breakfast with the family recently and it was perfect! Menu was varied and had something for everyone, seating was great and they accommodated a large party on short notice. The service was attentive, and the ambiance was wonderful!! We will go back for dinner!"

  • "Location is convenient to everything and you are sure to get a meal that is consistently good. Prices are good-not a tourist rip off. Interesting people and the service makes you feel comfortable and not rushed."

  • "The ambiance is fine, but it is far too noisy...the room downstairs is more quiet and lovely, but was not being utilized. One could not hear the other people at your table. It was quite disconcerting."

  • "Good Mid Town spot for friendly relaxed lively atmosphere. Mix of couples and groups. Good for steak and truffle fries and tuna tartare. Reasonable prices and decent service. I am a return customer."

  • "Had a farewell to NYC dinner with age 30 kids, as our visit to see our son was over. Hard to choose what to get from the various menu items as they all appeared good. I had a Kobe meatloaf which was really good with green beans and truffle potatoes. Meatloaf had barbq sauce, which was super. Son had a chicken dish with a double handle name which was very good. I also tasted my daughters blue crab dish and wife's sea bass. Both tasted funny to me, but I think it was the barbq sauce as wife and daughter raved about both and they are picky. My son also had some mushroom soup which I tasted and it was superb. We shared a cheesecake for desert and it was fab. Server excellent. Sounds/looks like Sean Hannity."

  • "Rue 57 is the 'hang out' for my friend from abroad and me. Despite the busy dinner crowd it lets us linger over wine, food, and more food. It is an active fun place that causes us to come back time and again (not only with her but in general). The friendly, non pushing staff deserves an extra commendation. We will be back very soon."

  • "Love the food, the atmosphere and the peopelk. The wait staff and bartenders are awlays friendly!"
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Great menu but our server didn't know what was what on the menu. For example, we asked what cheese was in the grilled cheese. She didn't know but guessed maybe provolone. Based on the other ingredients, I highly doubted provolone was in there but we couldn't be too sure so we avoided it. The waitress made no effort to find out what the cheese was but I'd think this is something she should know? Forgot little things like ketchup and what not. "

  • "The food at Rue 57 is very good. The brunch menu makes this a great spot for a Sunday brunch. It's a great place to bring friends or out of town visitors. "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "our waiter sort of disappeared and it took a long time for our food to come, or to get any refills on our iced tea, soda and water, which is particularly odd for midtown NYC during lunch hours. my guest had short rib sliders which were uneventful, and I had a turkey burger, which was okay, but nothing to write home about."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Rue 57 continues to deliver the highest quality dining experience. Although the neighborhood has many restaurants, I always find myself returning here because I know it will not disappoint. For a business dinner or a night out with friends - the food and service are always excellent, and relaxing decor feels more like Paris than NYC. We always have a great time. I haven't written an Opentable review in a long time, but I just had to praise this place. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We have dined at this restaurant numerous times over the years, and have consistently encountered extremely rude hostesses. They always make you feel like an inconvenience, rather than a paying customer. The food is excellent, but not sure it's worth the aggravation, as bistros are abundant in the city."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "I continue to be VERY impressed by the food, the ambiance, and the attentive restaurant staff. The prices are reasonable for upscale NYC dining, and a real value when you account for how great the experience is. PS. the Fries are a MUST! Enjoy!"

  • "We made a reservation at Rue 57 because it was close to our hotel & our feet were tired of walking. It was pretty noisy & the tables were very close together, but it was a friendly crowd. Zack our waiter was great - always on top of things & there when you wanted him. We had the popcorn shrimp that he recommended & they were yummy! My husband had the filet & I had the sea bass - both were really really good. We also had the valrhona chocolate cake for dessert & it was lovely with all sorts of accompaniments. Wine list was good, we made friends with the two tables next to us. Lovely last night in New York City. We would definitely go again!"

  • "We were staying at The Plaza and did not feel like spending $60-70 for breakfast so we walked a couple of blocks to Rue 57. We were promptly seated outside, which was a real bonus on a beautiful day. The hostess even directed us to the sunny side of the outdoor seating. The menu was varied, with lots of good options. My wife and I both got omelets, plus on chocolate croissant. Everything was excellent. The orange juice was truly fresh squeezed and the coffee and tea top notch. Service was excellent and we really enjoyed the meal."

  • "The food and ambiance at Rue 57 are fabulous! Had dinner for two on a special occasion, and the service and attention to detail were superb, as was the food; best steak au poive I've had in a very long time, the halibut was fresh and well-made and the appetizers and sides were delicious. Steak order was a bit more rare than expected (quickly corrected; kudos to staff), so it may be best to order up one cooking level from that desired."

  • "We were promptly seated and impressed by the wide variety of menu options. All of the burgers, sandwiches, and desserts were delicious. Our waitress was less than interested in us and in a rush to get us out. She never brought bread, never checked to see how our meals turned out and seemed mad that we wanted dessert. Three times, I found her in the corner with her arms hanging all over another server. I expected much better service from Rue 57. "

  • "This is where I tend to go when I am on 57th St. It's reliable & consistent. Just wished they had better variety of bread as they had in the past. There is only one kind now. Boring!"

  • "started to eat there almost every time in the city but not for at least the last five years. I t looks a bit worn now. still busy but not as intense. also they are trying to sell up with every conversation and trying to get an order and get us out the door. while i do not live in area i've been there so often i do not consider myself a tourist and the behavior feels like that of a tourist restaurant. it didn't used to feel that way. food was great though.
