About Petrossian - New York

Founded in 1984 and Owned by the PETROSSIANS, it serves a French-influenced contemporary menu that features the caviar, smoked fish, and foie gras delicacies for which Petrossian is known throughout the world. Parisien born, Chef RICHARD FARNABE's celebrated career began with ten years beside Michelin-starred Chef Jacques Maximin in France, before he came to America, where he honed his craft under Daniel Boulud and Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The latter named him Chef de Cuisine at Mercer Kitchen, where New York magazine described the menu as "a lesson in how a few ingredients, perfectly balanced, can create flavors that are lucid and compelling." He was awarded a AAA Five Star Diamond opening of Prime in Huntington and two Michelin stars for his consultation with Picholine. Most recently, he served as a corporate Executive Chef for the Soho/Tribeca Grand Hotel, before arriving at Petrossian, where he hopes to broaden American appreciation for caviar and authentic french seafood.

If all you want is caviar, with impeccable service---then this is the place. Otherwise, the food is quite simply, not good. I ordered 3 oz. of Royal Transmontanus,(A sustainably raised American sturgeon) for $65, while my husband and daughter ordered 3 oz. of just Transmontanus (A younger fish.) for $45, I believe. I could tell the difference, they really couldn't. I also ordered an appetizer portion of the linguine with parmesan and a scattering of Transmontanus caviar. The parmesan was a glob of glue. I had to remove it to eat the pasta. Yuck. My husband had borscht , which he said was sorta okay. Of course, we had a nice champagne to go with the caviar. The whole evening was incredibly expensive. The tasting menu, consisting of more of the bad food was $250 pp. The Art Deco decor at one time must have been beautiful Now the upholstery is a ragged and the seats dumpy from so many tushies. I won't be going back. Instead, I'll buy a nice, big tin from a reputable caviar company, a bottle of champagne to go with, and stay home.

Great treat for me and my wife to go. We did the tasting w/wine pairings... Not sure if it was worth the $450 for both.
In any case I would recommend to take off "bucket" list. :)

While the place is elegant , it is tired. That shows in the food as well: the cavair was tired, not bright nor full of flavor. Most of the items on the half bottle wine list were no longer available. The foie gras and duck confit sandwich had the potential to be great , but didn't make it. Service was just ok. Won't bother going back. Better choice on Madison Ave for same price

The place to go for caviar. Perfect for an intimate dinner with a friend or significant other. Very beautiful decor and ambience. The tasting menu was impeccable, presentation of each course almost to beautiful to eat. Portions were perfect, and flavors were out of this world. Couldn't have asked for a better first time experience!

A beautiful setting for an excellent dinner. We went there pre-concert (Carnegie Hall is a block away). It was early, so the restaurant was quite empty, but that added to its appeal for us. My wife had one of the caviar combinations, which she enjoyed immensely, while I ate delicious baked Hamachi from the standard menu. expensive, but highly worthwhile.

A gorgeous and historic space. The chef is highly acclaimed and his bio featured in the menu is appreciated. My party came for a a caviar tasting and, as such, weren't looking for any kind of value menu. The service was impeccable. None of us partook in the chef's tasting menus or the extensive caviar tasting menu but they looked fairly priced and encompassing of all the restaurant had to offer.

I would recommend this restaurant to many but if you have any sensitivity to ambient music, may I suggest this not be the best place for you. With a theatre prix fixe menu, I assume this restaurant caters to those who may be attending a concert at a nearby venue like Carnegie Hall, as we were. The incessant classical gas, Kenny G-esque, elevator versions of 80s pop songs were not only a distraction but a detriment to the dining experience. I implore the management at this restaurant to thoughtfully consider an alternative to the vapid trash oozing from the quality sound system forced upon the diners.

Hard to say where it all went wrong. The fact that there was no mention of a required tasting menu at a high price ($279 with no drinks included) when I booked a few weeks earlier for New Year's Eve for a family of four but that was told to me two days before when they called to confirm. Ok, I get that it is a special time but obviously no one else fell for that as restaurant was pretty near deserted with so many empty tables with pretty blue balloons over them. Food was over elaborate and the caviar portion minimal with an oversized blini - Caviar Russe knows how to do it and someone from Petrossian should visit there to see how to do it!

My wife and I decided to do to Petrossian for New Year's Eve because it was close to where we were staying and the security for the event at Times Square was dominant. Any way the menu was fixed and the prix fixe was high which offered a small amount of caviar to start followed by fois gras over tuna carpaccio then lobster with caviar.All were good. The entree choice was either duck or steak neither of which were that good.Dessert was a frozen pear covered with merinque.The biggest issue we had was that no beverage was included in the price so consuming champagne and wine really added to the bill.WE ordered port to finish and were told it was LBV ruby..turned out it was NV tawny...I rejected the offering and was met with a disgruntled manager's reaction. So approaching a 1000 bill on a special night and being treated hostily was not what we hoped for.

A great place to buy take-home stuff but not for Christmas Eve celebration with special friends. Service was shoddy and amuck, like several people asking if we wanted tap water without bringing water. The first round of drinks took 35 minutes to arrive. One server Jefferson told our one vegan friend "chef" is busy in the kitchen and cannot accommodate you this evening because we have no vegetables in-house. Seriously? They did --an hour later-- present a salad. Holiday music would have been nice instead of radio tunes. At very least, French music should play. One round of bread (no choice, which doesn't fit on the bread plates at all)) came and went and we had to ask for more. The lobster-chicken main course was just okay, and the "spaghetti" starter fit into one spoon. Overall, it's just not the place to eat Caviar anymore, let alone on a special occasion of Christmas eve. The exception to the entire process is the duo of girls who take coats and check-in: very cordial, attentive, and professionally charming.

Too expensive, particularly for the minuscule portions. Value received -zero. Perhaps a green salad might be added to the all white (other than caviar) menu to give lunch diners a better choice.

I would never return nor recommend it.

Although staff professional and caring, certain items have continued to be of poor quality, especially simply smoked salmon. It's still one of New York's loveliest and best located restaurants, but would be more attractive to visit again if pre-theatre menu reinstated.

We were absolutely disappointed in the entire experience at Petrossian. Only go there for caviar, which is over priced actually. Every other dish was way to fussy, with too many flavors and way too rich. There really was nothing on the entree menu that appealed to either of us and the NY strip steak was tough and covered with too many other flavors creating such an unpleasant flavor that we both left the entire dish untouched after the first bite. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!

I had the roasted veal which also had some sweetbreads ( yum) and cheek on the plate. It was delicious and perfectly prepared - pink throughout.
However, my husband had the duck breast. He asked for it to be cooked medium. It came to the table bloody and rare. He sent it back. I was nearly finished with my meal by the time his overcooked duck returned. WHY do chefs want to prepare duck so rare? It is gamey, tough and impossible to chew.
I really don't care how "Chef recommends " my food to be prepared. It should be served the way I want it- regardless of whatever trend is in fashion.

Has made 10:45 reservations as they were listed as still open. Were seated at 10:48 and proceeded to place or order and the waiter came back and told us that nothing hot could be given to us so could only order the cold appetizers. If not going to be able to serve should have not accepted the reservation or at least told us before we were seated. Otherwise keep to your hours which is my biggest pet peeve with restaurants.

A hostess who gave me every reason to say no to my request for a nice table - and yet the restaurant was almost empty when we arrived.
A hostess who agreed to send us champagne when we sat down to celebrate something but then it never came.
Amuse bouche was fabulous as was the cocktail I ordered but the bar tender forgot to add the champagne so had to come by our table 5 minutes later to add it.
Our waiter came by every two minutes to take our order despite our request to finish our drinks first then disappeared after we got our food - which came in much to fast a rotation. Timing was off all night.
Interesting appetizers but neither of us liked our entrees-my bass was overcooked and had a funny smokey taste and the veal was too fatty. My friend ate next to nothing of it.
Odd and such a disappointing experience as we both are New Yorkers who looked forward.
The manager was not there that night but I doubt his/her presence could put this up to par.
