About

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. :)
Do carriage ride in Central park! :)
Day was Great!

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.

Caviar was good. Food from menu terrible. Staff courteous but not trained or knowledgable.
Could not eat my entree.

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.

Menu is too limited and too focused on caviar
Also there is no fixed price lunch menu when there used to be

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.
