Breakfast with specialties and special attention from the staff.
We tasted a more sugar than usual in Parfait, juices and bread.
With a name like Auden, the bar has to be good. Or maybe not.
Skip the restaurant and have a drink in the magnificent adjoining bar area. Lots of cozy seats and a high ceiling. A great, atmospheric refuge the manic Columbus Circle crowds and traffic. You can order from a bar menu.
The restaurant has more choice but much less in the way of ambiance.
I had the onion soup, not bad, and the lemon sole, soggy and bland.
Our waiter kindly arranged for us to move to a table away from a trio of high-volume, pink cocktail-chugging young women gabbing on their cell phones about the virtues of pave wedding rings vs. traditional rocks. Why we were seated next to them in the first place is another question, because the dining room was pretty empty.
It only took two requests for our drinks to be served.
Good, but pricey.
Extremely slow service. Hardly any tables were occupied for an early lunch and food took almost 45 minutes to be served. Given the prices, service should have been on point.
The food is no where near the price or “Ritz” level. The waiter got our order wrong, the salad wasn’t very good, and the main dish we had was weak. Very few vegetarian options.
Nice place. Good food and service. Always dine here when in NYC.
We planned a nice night out and imagined this would be the place to go. The food was good but not great and certainly not worth the prices charged. The ambience was terrible- it felt like an average hotel restaurant and far from a fine dining experience.
Always a sublime dining experience. If the food doesn't dazzle you, the staff surely will! Zaheer and his crew make every meal a special occasion. The fruit plate is almost too pretty to eat, however, the freshness makes it irresistible. Despite the plethora and variety of the menu items, the chef is willing to accommodate any special requests- vegan, gluten-free, low cal. I can't forget the fresh squeezed orange juice or the amazing smoothies. We make this a "must-visit" every time we go to NYC. The location can't be beaten. Inside the luxurious Ritz Carlton at Central Park, Auden is our first stop before walking off the meal in the park just across the street. After endless refills of the best coffee, we always have plenty of energy.
Service and food were impeccable
We visit Auden whether we stay at the Ritz or not. The food is delish! We LOVE breakfast there before a nice walk in Central Park just across the street. Our favorite is the eggs benedict, the egg white omelete and fresh squeezed juices. I tried a new menu item, the turkey muffin - fantastic! The fruit plate is terrific year round. The portions are perfect. The main draw for our visit though is the outstanding service! Zaheer, our server, is like an old family friend. He recognizes us and makes us feel at home. All the staff is superb and extremely accommodating. Our coffee cups are never empty.
