Came in for lunch yesterday, great place to drop in for a delicious bite in Midtown. Perfect for a power lunch and couldn’t be happier with the way that my guest and I were treated. Will definitely be back.

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.

Meal was overall good, with the exception of the quail, the bed lacked flavor. The veg salad was overdressed and too acidic, not edible.

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.

I picked this for Restaurant Week because of their high reviews and they didn't disappoint. I love the 1940's old New York vibe with an amazing waitstaff. I was so impressed I told everyone at work about it and we'll be back! It was super special.

I suggested here with a couple of colleagues for dinner on Monday evening. It had a great atmosphere and a lovely set menu for Restaurant Week. We chose the wine pairing to match and it was delicious. The service is excellent and so was the food and wine.

A very good restaurant with a self imposed attitude (little haughty). Only went there because I read a lot of Stewart Woods and he frequently mentions it. Very expensive for what you got.

Enjoyed the experience but don't know if I would do it again.

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.

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?!
