Fantastic service and food. Tables were socially distanced and the rooftop was well used. Always a great time and dining experience.
The rooftop patio is so nice to dine at. The food was amazing!! Definitely will go back!
Besides that everything was great, the service was exceptional!

What a magical experience for Tallulah - and us - for her 16th! Thanks so much for the special touches - the party hats, flowers, confetti, and chocolate cake! - and for the care and attention your team gave to us on Friday night! We can't wait to come back again soon! X
One of our favorite restaurants in Manhattan. Never fails to deliver an unparalleled dining experience. Exceptional food and wine and service. Ingredients always seem to be the best possible available. Owner Ken Aretsky is truly a class act and Maitre D Stephane makes the experience unforgettable. We love this restaurant.
In this time of Covid, Aretsky’s has a dining area adjacent to the rooftop , so if the roof top doors are open, there’s great ventilation .
The restaurant is beautiful, the staff is really well trained & the food is delicious!
I’ll continue to dine there even after Covid is over!
Love the ambience here. Food is awesome, and the service is great. The cocktails are to die for.
Go here, you will not be disappointed.
A great experience. Excellent food and service and the prettiest warm and welcoming outdoor space. Our guests were super impressed and happy.
The rooftop dinning is a gem in the city! It is so much nicer than eating in a parking space with passing trucks.
The restaurant was wonderful. The owner visited everyone’s table to say hello and thank them for dining that night. The wait staff was very attentive and professional. The food was absolutely delicious. I would definitely go back.
The service was wonderful. The food is exquisite. Indoors or out, it feels like a special place, and not at all like you are in New York, yet it’s very New York, all at once. Truly a special place. Go for the cocktails, stay for the witty banter. A true gem in the heart of midtown East.
This is the best outdoor eating space in Manhattan. Roof top, Protected, warm, airy and far from the madding crowds at street level. sophisticated service is top notch.. The food is outstanding and is as high quality as ever. The whole Aretsky front of house team is welcoming and customer oriented.
Fantastic choice for Covid-19 eating. Their rooftop is heated and covered...bartender super energetic. Staff very happy to be working and serving. Menu is varied and has a combo of bar type food and elegant entrees- something for everyone. It is not cheap, but since we are ll dining out less, it is well worth paying a bit more for a truly fun dinner out.
Perfect place for eating on the roof or inside socially distant. Food is delicious. Everyone is friendly. Lovely atmosphere.
Another perfect dining experience. Beautiful space, fabulous food and attentive staff. Could not ask for more.
Covid precautions were seamless and the whole experience was delightful!
Aretskys patroon was immaculate, thoughtful, beautiful, and delicious - like an oasis in midtown. I felt so safe on the roof terrace with heat lamps, distanced seating, temperature check, and even an alcohol wipe with our credit card! Ty so much, will be coming again!
The food was excellent: the special octopus salad was delicious as was the special mushroom lentil soup. The fish preparations were tantalizing: the salmon & the yellowfin tuna were cooked to perfection, & the accompaniments were excellent. The restaurant is clearly adhering to the coronovirus protocols & we felt very safe & comfortable. And the service, as usual, is 5 star!
Absolutely wonderful. What a treat! Food was over the top and perfectly cooked. We had the appetizers and oysters. My filet was perfect and the halibut so yummy. Not a crumb left on the plates.
Delightful dining under the stars with excellent food and service. The family owners always stop by tables to shower attention.
During the pandemic, Patroon has a limited menu, but the food and service are still excellent. I had the special raw oysters starter, a combination of East & West coast oysters served with a selection of 3 sauces, delicious. I followed those with the filet mignon, which was perfectly cooked to Medium rare and served with a fabulous au poivre sauce. I opted for the house made fries, which were accompanied by a truffle mayonnaise,also delicious. The special dessert was a meringue pavlova stuffed with fresh fruit, and raspberry coulis, not overly sweet and mouthwatering. A memorable meal. The wine list has a large selections by the glass.
Amazing, what a find! Everything was excellent! I will be back!
Great vegan entree option! Excellent!
Awesome food. Friendly waiter and hostess. Will be back
Rooftop dining was a huge success—everything felt so alive & joyful, making the food even more wonderful. It felt like coming home & having fun in wonderful surroundings. Thank you to the Arretsky family for making all of this possible!
Consistently one of new york's authentic old haunts.
Perfection from beginning to end...a rooftop oasis in an insane world. We escaped the madness of 2020 for a night to celebrate a birthday with wonderful food, and spectacular service! We can’t wait to return when the indoor dining has commenced. My only criticism is the tables are slightly small for a dinner, but we made due since everything else was sublime. Thanks AP!
Worth the hard climb up two flights (I’m old)
Great for business. Do not buy cigars at the restaurant. The mark up was about three to four times. I spent 400 on lunch for two people so it’s bit that I care about the money for the cigar but it was principal.
LOVED everything about dining at Aretsky's Patroon! From walking into the restaurant we were greeted very warmly and friendly by the staff. Then we were escorted upstairs to the FABULOUS rooftop area that had such a great ambiance and vibe. Our waiter was friendly, a veteran of the restaurant for 25 years as most of the wait staff are, knowledgeable, helpful and made our dinner so pleasant as he was very attentive but not too much. The owner stopped by our table and then his wife did later thanking us for dining and it was very sincere. The food was fabulous and served timely and we were not rushed. The cocktails were tasty and creative. Truly a wonderful night out for the 4 of us and we will return! So glad we only live two streets away.
Dinner on Aretsky’s rooftop was like a mini vacation. The most enjoyable outdoor meal in NYC. Such a beautiful space, and truly a delicious meal. For what they dub as a limited menu, the options are still plenty and varied. The staff was equally as happy to be attending to their patrons as the patrons were to be back! A perfect evening. Can’t wait to return. Welcome back Patroon!!!
The food, the staff (especially Stefan), and the roof top made for a great experience! Our meals were delicious, as always. And we really enjoyed laughing and talking with the friendly staff. Can't wait to go back!
Great place for outdoor dining in the time of COVID. The charming owner and excellent staff made our recent visit a memorable one. We will be back.
Great to be back! As always, wonderful food, service and ambiance.
The place is the best glad it’s back
This was my first time in NYC and our first time eating at Aretsky Patroon. It was extremely quite due to the Corona Virus so not many people were eating out. The staff was fantastic and the food amazing. We had the oysters, clams casino(which I had two orders of) and Bib salad to start and all were great. For our main course I had the Lamb Chops and my husband had the Au poivre steak and both were excellent. We would not hesitate to come back again. A+ in our opinion.
I love this restaurant. I don’t live in New York but am there frequently on business. Thus has become my “go to” for business lunches and dinners. Fabulous staff and lovely food.
The best kept secret for fine dining in Manhattan. Understated elegance, fine food and drink and an atmosphere of civility and elegance.
My colleague and I had a great lunch with a client. There was something for everyone’s particular tastes. The owner came by and thanked us for stopping by, which was a nice touch.
Aretsky’s never fails me. Always great food, perfect service and quiet enough for dinner conversation. Friday nights are particularly nice with live Jazz during dinner.
