Midweek visit to Aretsky's was a perfect pick my up - the service was excellent, led by our waiter Tony, but from the greeting at the door to the goodbye everyone was attentive and friendly. We tried the soup of the day, scallops, 35 day aged rib-eye for two and the beignets and every single dish was delicious, with an appropriate amount of time between the courses to digest, which is always good!
Decor is beautiful and the lights out on the patio lent a nice touch to a summer evening along with jazz-ish classics. The upstairs space is all wood with a high ceiling though so one noisy diner definitely filled the air.

The service was impeccable, polite, kind, prompt. The food was excellent as always. Mr. Aretsky was present, greeting patrons. We had such a lovely time. We asked about extra postcards and found them waiting for us at the front desk as we headed out the door. Aretsky’s has lost not one ounce of its classic charm even in the midst of the turmoil around us.

Enjoyed an amazing dinner on the rooftop of this beautiful restaurant. Our server, Liz, was attentive, kind and very knowledgeable. The octopus and tuna appetizers were delicious, as was the fairytale cocktail. The steak with roasted garlic and beignets were fantastic. Thanks so much for an unforgettable dinner and experience.

Lamb chops were tough. Waiter forgot my side dish and brought it late into my meal.
My wife’s branzino was excellent as were the cocktails.
Setting on the rooftop was exquisite.

Great experience for our high level VIP dinner. Victoria, the private dining manager provided us with a fantastic and unique experience. Liz our server was quick witted and firm, with our party of 6 men (otherwise our dinner would have been 6 hours long!). Service was excellent, and what u expect from a fine dining experience. Chilled melon soup was excellent, refreshing with a hint of spice... maybe cayenne. Halibut was good. Oils have used more of the sauce. Highly recommended for impressing clients.

Stephan made everything perfect and the food was incredible. The rooftop dinning is the combination of a small intimate restaurant that meets the City. I will return to this restaurant every time I return to New York.

I was disappointed in the food. The lobster with palm hearts was over spiced and the lobster rather undistinguished. My hamburger was a bit overdone from medium and a bit too charred so that the burnt flavor came through to overpower the flavor of the meat. I liked the fries and the brussels spouts however. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. Portions are generous.

Aretsky's Patroon never disappoints. So glad to visit after such a long time away. It is a family-run restaurant and it shows. Ken and his son Gene always make sure to stop by to see that everyone is happy and taken care of. The food and service are both outstanding. Highly recommend.

Patroon is always welcoming and relaxed. The staff makes each diner feel like they truly matter. The bar makes perfect cocktails, handsomely served. But it is the food that is so delicious and satisfying. I never feel like going anywhere else.

Aretsky's Patroon is my favorite restaurant in NYC. The food was delicious as always, and the service impeccable. The only thing missing was the fabulous rolls they normally serve. Here's hoping they make a comeback soon! Stephane makes everyone feel so welcomed and is the heart of the place!

It was an amazing experience. From the moment we got dropped off by our Uber and the owners son offer to take our picture in front of the restaurant. We enjoyed an amazing meal and met the owner. We finished our night with dessert on the rooftop restaurant. Perfect evening.
