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.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on July 22, 2009

We were traveling with our 9-year old granddaughter and appreciated the consideration and attention the staff extended to her and to us. Food was very good -- we especially liked the duck breast, but were a little disappointed in the striped bass. It seemed dry (perhaps overdone?). Service was excellent and atmosphere is quite elegant.

I tried this restaurant during Restaurant Week, so the pricing was great! But I would not go there paying more for the food. Their food, service, and atmosphere were great, but the style was just not my favorite.

IF you're in a hurry and need to make a show--this place will get you seated, and fed in about an hour!! I felt much too rushed. They didn't ask if we were seeing a show, but it sure felt like they were trying to get us out for one! And the food when it came (rather quickly), was luke warm. Sorry---I like my dinner hot!!
Maybe it was the $35.00 Restaurant week special that made them rush things along.
Once we finished eating though, they weren't exactly throwing us out of the place. But I would have liked to have more time between courses.
Interior is a throwback to the 80's. I always wanted to check it out, and I'm glad I did---no regrets! ~G.B.

The main course and the dessert were excellent at this place, except I am not sure what the rave is about with their caviar. Perhaps the caviar was not the best that they had because we went for restaurant week (but paid extra for the caviar). I don't know. I am just giving them the benefit of the doubt because everything else was great. Steak, cod, and salmon crostini, tiramisu - all perfect.

Oh so elegant and civilized--the deco/nouveau blend of decor makes you feel as if you should be wearing cloche hats and low-waisted dresses. The restaurant week prix-fix was a treat, with the fruit tart with apple sorbet on the side the unexpected taste sensation of the day.

We wanted to take advantage of Restaurant Week and go somewhere we would not otherwise patronize. It was fun to dine in the elegant, opulent room. It was a treat to be able to sample their famous pastries as one of the desserts. I had been looking forward to sampling their even more famous caviar and while I know not all items are included in Restaurant week to have a $14 surcharge for an appetizer on a $24 meal didn't make sense to me. . .so I wish they'd come up with a smaller portion or another way to offer a sampling of caviar that isn't more than 50 percent of the cost of the whole meal for those on budgets. But definiately a great Restaurant Week choice!

One gets the feeling that Petrossian may be a bit past its prime, but it's hard to protest the quality of some of their classic dishes. Almost everything I've had salad to striped bass to caviar has been above par, even if it's not the most creative dish in town. Their blini accompanying the caviar are just buttery perfection! But as supposed purveyors of luxury foodstuffs, their tea and coffee selection was a little disappointing.
The ambiance is on the worn-elegance side, but attractive enough. The service is usually fine. Overall, it's a pleasant place and a time-honored institution. Will that be enough to stay in business in this city? We'll see.

Really enjoyed everything about "Petrosian". The food was outstanding, the ambience unbeatable and except for the fact that I had to ask for more water, the service was really good. Definitely will go again. The rest rooms are exquisite too, as are the flower arrangements

 (Central Coast)·Dined on July 14, 2009

They were very nice in serving us the Restaurant Week lunch menu even though we were quite late for our reservation. The food was good but the service better. The smoked salmon appetizer very yummy, lunch quite good, but the desserts were not as good as the rest of the meal. I didn't sample the expensive caviars, and I suppose that's the real draw of this restaurant. I went there for Restaurant Week because I'd hardly pay these prices on a normal priced menu day. But for a special occasion, someone with expensive taste may be impressed.

Our dining experience was excellent. The $35 Price fixe (poached salmon) was excellent and perfect for a pre-theatre dinner. Service was very good; professional, yet friendly. We found their Martini's to be a bit skimpy.

One of our favorites in the City. This is the first time we tried the Brunch menu and we loved it. Every course was terrific; the menu provides a diverse selection that should ensure you find something that suits your mood. Even though dessert was included in the prix fixe, we couldn't resist the temptation to go next door afterwards to their bakery and take away some of those fabulous cookies (the double chocolate pecan are something else!).

We were visiting New York and this was our first time at the Petrossian. We've admired the incredible architecture of the building for a long time and decided we should finally enjoy a meal. The whole experience was wonderful as evidenced by my 5-star ratings in each category! The food was superb; delicious, well-prepared and beautifully presented. The space itself is very attractive and elegant and service was impeccable as well. The "fixed price" meal was quite a pleasure to find. I wish we lived closer so we could come more often!

food was fantastic, as was the service. However, the wait staff led us astray on the the amount of caviar we should order. Rather than $80 for 20g we were upsold to $240 for 60g, told that the $80 wasn't enough for 2....it sure was. With all the toast and belinis the 20g is good enough for 2. Plus after spending $150 on champagne, $240 on caviar, we were going to also order prix fix and asked for a the borscht soup rather than what was on the prix fix...they wouldn't oblige.

The food was very good, though the menu rather small. Wine list had some reasonably priced nice things on it (some delightful low-end red Burgundies, of which we had one). We went late night (10:30); it was romantic and quiet, but almost too deserted. Recommended for couple or group that can create own jollity. Service was attentive but pretty ignorant.
