Astor Court Ratings and Reviews
This was a wonderful treat -- a truly beautiful restaurant with the most gracious, un-rushed service. We were there for restaurant week but I'd go back any time of the year. It's a slightly odd menu (a Reuben is not what I usually order) but the flavors were delicious, the preparation careful and imaginative, and the chocolate dessert the stuff of dreams. We were lucky enough to have Jessie wait on us and although I rarely remember the names of waitstaff, I will definitely ask for her again next time.
Went here for Restaurant Week. However, the server said they stop serving that menu at 3pm, despite the regular lunch menu still available. Nowhere on their site, on OpenTable, or on the nycgo website does it say this. I had the tuna tartar (excellent) and the capellini pasta (fair). Service was neither attentive nor accommodating. There was a bit of a wait for the maitre d' to get seated. The place was nice and had a pretty cool harpist.
The butternut squash soup was beautiful to look at as well as tasty! We went on a very cold day and ordering hot soup over salad was the natural choice.
Entres on the restaurant week menu was either sandwiches or risotto. Not much of a choice there. We both ended up with hot risotto which was very simple, though quite tasty. Dessert was round chocolate mousse cake coated with dark chocolate and a scoop of ice-cream on the side. I finished everything. The entres were quite weak but if u want to talk in a beautiful decor with high ceiling, this is the place for u.
Everything was okay until the very end. As my guest and i were on our way out the captain felt it was necessary to ask me why I didn’t tipped him. Unbeknown to him I left the tip in cash... which he clearly didn’t see.
This experienced made me feel so uncomfortable and embarrassed.
I try contacting a manager minutes after the incident. (Which took me several calls extensions)
Will never come back, to this or any affiliated location
Great wait staff, my friend did torture the guy but think that was just a typical person who wants what she wants . The restaurant week lunch was sandwiches which I had never seen on a lunch. All was ok, not special, where we sat, at a cramped small round table wasn't great. Nothing was great. I wouldn't go back, there wasn't one good reason to do so, except the waiter.
I looked at the menu and decided that I had to come and dine here. Starting from the moment I was greeted at the door, until I left, I felt like royalty. The food was creative, delish and outstanding. From the burrata salad to the risotto, finished off by the mousse, each course was a masterpiece. I will definitely come back more often!
The service was awful , the waiter never hesitated to ask if we want another round or just to check on us , it took a while to place an order and then to catch a waiter to get the bill. The place was dirty and looked like it's a sports bar as the whole floor was covered with nuts , chips and shells. Never again.
A groups of people showed up with no reservation insisting they be seated. It was Christmas Day. The maître d' explained there were no tables available, but these people would not leave. They had 4 small children that were running around the tables like they were at Chuckey Cheese. The parents did nothing to quiet the children. The maître d' should have asked them to either leave or at least wait outside the dining area until a table could be arranged. There are better standards for the guest exepeerince at McDondals than were held at the Astor Court.
Take time away from the hustle and bustle of midtown Manhattan and enjoy the elegant ambience of afternoon tea at one of New York’s classic hotels. The tea sandwiches are impeccable; the scones with clotted cream and lemon curd, perfection; the sweet bites of mini-desserts are most satisfying and a sweet end to the afternoon. We enjoyed tea as a pre-theater meal for a 7 o’clock curtain. A wonderful way to end our trip to New York.
Tables far enough apart
Service staff always seems put upon, stressed, unhappy, Overwhelmed.
Nothing special at all about the little sandwiches and little cakes and petit fours.
You are not rushed and often relaxed you do that
Christmas time is especially beautiful and done extremely well
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.
