Aretsky's Patroon Ratings and Reviews
We booked Artesky's for restaurant week based on the excellent reviews on open table but overall, it was a disappointing experience. Although the service and ambiance were nice, the food was uninspired and not at all what we'd expect from a restaurant of this calibre. It seems as though they were testing out some new dishes for the first time for restaurant week and nobody taste tested them beforehand to see if they were actually any good. Overall, a disappointment and we won't be returning or recommending this restaurant to anyone else.
I had the restaurant week menu, which is identical in price and selection to the weekly Friday evening prix- fixe. I was seated on the ground level. It is possible that an upstairs room would be quieter and the regular menu better. I ordered the matched wine, for my entree of Wagyu beef stew, which was a Cabernet Franc at $15/glass. Despite letting it "open " for about 1 hour, it was still too tannic and vinegar-like to drink. The entree was very tender, but the size of a small appetizer, and the appetizer ( quail ), ordinary. The best part of the meal was an excellent creme brûlée dessert. Having been in the restaurant business, I am being very generous in my rating. However, I would save this establishment for a costly, expense account dinner.
Wonderful experience all around. This is my favorite restaurants in NYC by now. Everything is just perfect. Lively, upscale and and warm vibe, superb food, and very professional staff. I don’t remember when my husband and I were last vowed that much by a restaurant.
Had been wanting to try this restaurant to see why Stone Barrington is such a frequent customer ;>) Author, Stuart Woods, must always dine for free here! Very nice ambiance, friendly and accommodating staff, impeccable service and delicious food. One of the best Caesar salads (The table side preparation is a nice touch.) we've ever had. Wanted to check out the upstairs terrace bar but it was closed for an event. Will try next time we are in town.
Can't recommend this place enough. Really something special.
We dined here for Thanksgiving dinner and will definitely make this our annual tradition going forward. The atmosphere is classy yet cozy. The food is prepared to perfection. And the staff make you feel welcome.
Highly recommend Aretsky's Patroon for any special occasion.
Very good food & service. A NYC hotspot used as locale in many Stuart Woods novels. Noise level almost unbearable & place is usually packed, with many large tables of business groups, probably using expense accounts. But it is kind of fun & a definite NY experience. Not the place for a quiet, intimate dinner though. Some say it’s the successor to the legendary Elaine’s.
Another fabulous evening at Patroon. From the moment you walk through the door you feel at home. Gracious, charming people are at your beck and call. The room is charming and lined with Ken's collection of world class photographs. While the room is always busy you can still have a conversation. Evenings in particular are very special. And the food... beyond divine in a modern yet classic manner. Honestly, we feel this is one of the best places in Manhattan. Hence we consider Patroon our "favorite." ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND IT. Although... I sort of like having it be my secret hideaway. So please... this is just between us OK?!
