Always look forward to the warm greetings from Stefan and Jody, and of course Stefans magic prep of classic Caesar salad.

Its a wonderful experience. Beautiful setting and professional staff. Friday night they offer $42 prefix menu and live jazz. The serving is little slow between each course. My main course is sword fish. Its huge and a little stinks.

Wow! I enjoy a lot of great restaurants nationwide, but this was truly great. Went with my family during a vacation to NYC. They didn’t bat an eye at bringing my 11 & 14 year old sons - which my wife & I greatly appreciated. They also offered french fries (not on the menu) to my very picky 14 year old to go with his steak. The manager spent some time talking with us - and mostly to our kids about what they loved most about our trip so far. My Dover Sole & my wife’s halibut were perfect. Grilled Octopus was the best I’ve ever had. Tableside Caesar salad, big enough for two, was so fresh & delicious. Service was outstanding all night. Just an awesome experience! Thank you to Aretsky’s Patroon & the staff!

Great place to celebrate a special occasion. From the moment you enter this restaurant you are transported to another era. Make sure you engage with the sommelier. He is attentive, incredibly well informed and will pick a perfect match for your meal. I can never pass up the table side prepared Caesar salad.fe M.

They were out of the wine that I originally ordered and by the time they took my order for a different wine we had already finished our appetizers and our main courses were being delivered. The food was very good and the wine was delicious but the service was slow.

Ken Aretsky may not have the scale of Danny Meyer's restaurant empire, but he has more than achieved the service standards. Patroon stands out for welcoming its loyal clientele and first time visitors alike. The food is first rate; the kitchen consistent every meal. The wine list is compact but well selected (there are some real gems). In a neighborhood that is a restaurant desert, it is always a good choice.

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.

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.
