We had reservations for the outer
Salon but asked to be seated inside the bar area, which was buzzing with all sorts of people. There is one water for all of the bar area, so order everything when you see him because you'll never know when he'll appear again. Bar food is extremely good - sliders, wonderful deviled eggs, incredible porcini popcorn, tuna tartare... and drinks are terrific."

The newly renovated King Cole
Salon has been somewhat of a disappointment for me and my family and seems at odds with the rest of the hotel and its classic old school charm. Spent some time there over the holidays as part of our family's tradition and it appears that King Cole Salon was not inclined to put any significant effort behind holiday decorations and/or atmosphere. Instead favoring a "clubby" lounge with uncomfortably loud music. Nonetheless, we remain hopeful Management may rethink this new direction and return it to it's former glory and tradition"

After a nos of years as a charming
Astor Court, the new King Cole Salon, has changed to a "casual" concept, While it has given up the old world charm , it fail utterly to create a new vibrancy with good food & a welcoming drinking place. We are former NYers, well travelled and can see the difference with those like the "W", esp during the evening hours. The service is OK, but the attendants look tired or daydreaming. The breakfast is overpriced, the quality of food was poor, e.g. we're served stale pastries. Due to the location, we may go here again for afternoon tea, and that's probably the only reason. We hope that management would make improvement , as it is such a waste for a beautiful restaurant at St. Regis , NY."

The restaurant is good if you are
shopping in the 5th Avenue area; otherwise, I'm not sure if I'd recommend the restaurant. The bar area is very vibrant; however, the restaurant feels like you are somewhat sitting in a hotel lobby."

Didn't realize the King Cole Bar
was being redone so instead of just having cocktails, we decided to eat at The Vault which is the restaurant area on the back end of the King Cole Bar which was open. Our meal was wonderful but the service was absolutely outstanding."

Hats off to the pastry chef for
this multitude of scrumptious tidbits (tea sandwiches and pastries 2nd course) served by attentive and smiling staff in silver vessels and plates on starched white table-cloths in quite room with modern old world charm! Wonderful and worth every penny!"

Great place for a nice
conversation. Very suitable for a business lunch/dinner."

Nice afternoon but disappointed
that we had to sit in the VAULT. Beautiful surrounding nonetheless ."

This hotel is located inside the
St. Regis hotel. It is very high class, and the waiters make you feel as if you are a posh person. I ate there for breakfast and the French Toast with strawberry butter and Carmelized bananas was fantastic."

Perhaps the most beautiful eating
environment New York has to offer, never mind the harpist."

Elegant spot for afternoon tea.
Nice mix of savory and sweet and lovely harp playing in the background."

As usual a great experience. The
Mad Hatter Tea was very flavorful and our waiter wax graciously in intrusive yet attentive. Excellent experience Oh and the harp was divine"

Unhurried afternoon tea in a
lovely, if somewhat cluttered, setting. There were too many tables too close together, but since there were only three or so other parties the room was quiet. Savories and sweets were almost all excellent (with only one disappointing sweet). The waiters were pleasant about bringing extra portions (which were, in my opinion, completely unnecessary, as I barely finished 2/3 of the original serving, and I'm no light-weight, but I mention it in case you have a hearty eater in your party)."

Had a Goods experience on
breakfast. Very special and healthy amounts, freshly fruits, assorted breads, notable service. Surely will come back!"

I had been looking for a
restaurant in the 5th Ave. and 55th Street area that would have terrific food and a quiet, romantic feel. I selected Astor Court and was thrilled. This was a first date and was exactly what I wanted. We were able to talk without having to battle a high noise level. Service was the perfect balance of attentive without being annoying. We both enjoyed our meals and had a great time, thank you!"

Food is fine, waiter was
miserable. Had to ask for water multiple times and he seemed to think he was doing us a massive favour by doing his job. He was downright rude. There are better teas in the city with decent (or even outstanding) service, no point in wasting your money to be glared at for an hour and a half."
