Astor Court Ratings and Reviews
Venue is one of the few elegant old world dining rooms in New York. Two course luncheon options are a great value and portions are generous. Service was ok. Not as attentive as one would expect for a Five Diamond Establishment. We had to ask for our entrees 20-minutes after they cleared our appetizers. I had to ask for more water (a pet peeve as they should have come around to check.) Then I had to flag our server again to get the check. The dining room was not very busy and the room seemed well staffed. The server was polite, but could have been more attentive given how quiet the room was.
I would return again, as the Carrot Ginger Soup was quite lovely.
WOW!! Expected breakfast to be fairly expensive but $43.00 for eggs and bacon, REALLY?? Server pushes orange juice and why, because it is $15.00. PLEASE!!!
At these prices one expects the hot food to be served HOT! Not the case. One and Done at Astor Court. Live and Learn.
It was just 2 of us for my mom's birthday- service -wonderful, Tony was great.
We will return to Astor Court for afternoon tea. The live harp music which plays at afternoon tea-time is just divine...and we hope the Astor Court thrives at The St. Regis; a real NYC gem.
Worst brunch ever, took them 30 minutes to give as water, literally 30 minutes! And that after I went told them that maybe its time for us to get some! Will never come back. At the end they didnt even felt like they should do something nice or extra for us, to make up for the bad service.
In my search for a good spot for a business breakfast spot near where my colleague is based at the Trump Tower, this seemed like a good choice. It wasn't.
There was nothing inherently wrong with our meal--the food was decent and the service was competent--but when breakfast for two costs $145 (including tip), it should be special. It wasn't. The server brought our dishes out at a separate times and my dish was initially delivered incomplete, with my side dishes of bacon and toast delivered in two subsequent visits by the server.
If money is no concern of yours, this is a serviceable option for a fancy breakfast. If you have high expectations when you're paying more than $70 per person for breakfast, find a better option.
Half of our order was forgotten, had to remind the waiter about it an hour into our sitting. Nobody served us any water the entire time we were there, we had to ASK for water at the end. Absurd for any restaurant, much less a place like this. Ambiance is great. Came for tea.
I use to go to the St Regis annually for their Astor Court tea. Each time I'd come, the place would be filled to the brim. Not only does tea service not begin until 3pm, there were only two other tables aside from mine in the space. We made some minor alterations to the sandwich offerings and the waiter did not seem to understand, so we were given things we hadn't quite ordered. Ultimately the space is so lovely I would definitely return!
Went for afternoon tea. Did not expect to be served an individual plate of 4 petit sandwiches followed later by "dessert" the tall tray of tea cakes. The sandwiches should have been served with the selection of tea cakes. It was tea time; not lunch. Let the guest select what they want to eat. $65 pp seemed high.
What you are paying for at Astor Court is atmosphere, great service and lovely jazz music. The tea components are sorely lacking. Scones are small and bland, but some would say scones are bland all the time, The sandwiches were good but not out of the ordinary as was the little quiche. Sandwiches were a smoked salmon spread, cucumber and cream cheese, crab salad (mostly bread with a little of the crab) and egg salad. Nothing imaginative in the recipes for these. The sweets were mixed. The French macaroon was quite good, as was the lemon tart with meringue topping. But the small slice of some sort of cake with gold flakes on top was not good and certainly not worth the calories for me to finish. The chocolate mousse was ok but again, nothing to write home about. The tea I chose was fine. And all this for $65 plus tax. I have had tea in several places in New York but I like to try other places. This was really disappointing. Get thee to Lady Mendl's if you want the best.
The Astor Court is iconic, a dining experience in remembrance of the former golden years of the St. Regis. The decor has been updated but seems a bit cold and inexpensive. The light and openness is beautiful. Our meals were delicious, hot, and well prepared. Since there were only two groups in the room, our service was superb. Could that be because it was Super Bowl Sunday?!? Most likely. We would return but only for a special occasion.
My daughter and I had dinner here before seeing the Opera at the Met. The Maître De was most pleasant and seated us promptly with menus, wine list and held the chair for my daughter. Our waiter, Craig, was friendly and professional, and clearly knew his craft. An absolutely lovely evening of elegance, delicious food and wonderful service.
The Astor Court is the perfect place to celebrate over Afternoon Tea. The tea sandwiches are delicious. My plate had five offerings: vegetable frittata, cucumber with cream cheese, smoked salmon, egg salad and crab salad. The tiered plate featured scones, tea cakes, chocolate mouse, lemon meringue tarts and French macarons. These were accompanied by creme fraiche, strawberry jam and lemon curd. I chose lavender earl grey tea, which was wonderful. And since I opted for the champagne tea service, I was poured a glass of Veuve Clicquot to get everything started.
If a guest is lucky, he will be seated at Ridwan's station. Ridwan has graced my tea service with kindness and professionalism one more than one occasion at Astor Court.
We were in NYC for the Christmas Holidays and decided upon the Astor Court restaurant in the famous St. Regis Hotel near Central park. Online the menu looked to be varied enough for our crowd of 5 and featured 3 courses and a desert.
Once seated, we ordered wine and chose our courses. Then things turned bad quickly....the Lobster bisque smelled heavily of fish and didn't contain one actual piece of lobster. The salad course was wilted and damp with dressing and had been sitting out. We were feeling a little discourage but hopeful when the ravioli arrived, but we we so disappointed in the weird, sweet, brown sauce on and around the over-cooked pasta. Our entire table left 2-3 of their total 4 ravioli's in the strange sauce and we were not even asked by the server if everything was "ok". The desert finalized our less than mediocre meal for a crowd of disappointed diners. The bill arrived to the tune of over $1000 and we all agreed we'd felt like we'd just been mugged!
Honestly I've had better food at Olive Garden. I'm sorry, but the Astor Court had better step up or be lost in the past.
Requested a table in center area of restaurant and specified I was being accompanied by a friend from Miami and I wanted him to be able to admire the King Cole mural while we dined. Upon arrival they brought us to the lower side area to a table for four and vanity chairs which I refused. They then honored my reservation properly.
The speed of service was incredibly slow. We waited at least 40 minutes before being offered an opportunity to order a cocktail. Each encounter with the waiter to ask us our choice took much much too long followed by the speedy delivery of our courses which were properly cooked, delicious, elegantly plated, and nearly worth the sinking feeling of waiting - very similar to waiting for the subway that is always inevitably very late.
I came for the Afternoon Tea with my friend. The service and presentation were not up to the high level as I experienced before. We ordered the Champagne Tea and got champagne at the end with sweets. We did not get the scones and cream at all. Very, very poor service and quality this time. I do not think I will go again soon.
Underwhelming would be the main thought after the meal. We booked based on reviews and because we were staying at the St Regis. Whilst the food and the service was of a good quality it was nothing overly special. We arrived at 8.30pm and the restaurant was empty by 9pm and we were sat on our own. It was a special birthday celebration dinner and as you can imagine we left the restaurant before 9.45pm feeling a bit flat . At $260.00 which only included 2 glasses of wine and not a bottle it was quite an expensive meal, so as you can imagine we left feeling that we had got rather poor value for money.
Waited forever for our waiter. I ordered the $28 roasted turkey breast sandwich. It was turkey lunch meat, I expected actual turkey breast for that price. Our waiter showed up to take the order, bring the food and clear the plates. That was all we saw of him. Expected more from a hotel restaurant.
