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.
Excellent service - old school menu - crazy good wine list with some hidden values - and the owner is a FFF - fanatical fly fisherman. What’s not to love?
We received a friendly welcome. Great attentive service. A wide selection of food and wine. A cozy and comfortable atmosphere. And, the owner stopped by and said hello. We had a perfect evening and will come again next time I am in New York. Thank you
Food is outstanding just missed out on having a drink in the library room (used to do it years ago)
Had a fantastic dinner with work friends at Aretsky's. Quality of the food and its presentation were outstanding. The service attentive and helpful. The evening was made even more special by the visit to each table by the owner who introduced himself to each of us with a warm handshake and inquiry as to whether there was anything he could do for us. Thanks for a great evening!
Outstanding as always.
Appreciated Ken and Diane Aretsky stopping by our table!
Service slow last night at our table not up to Patroons usual standards....which are very high!
We are so sorry last night was not perfect. Please come back soon and let us try again.
From beginning to end our experience was wonderful. Impeccable service and the food was delicious.
Great dinner experience...
Went for a business lunch. Expect to have the midtown “suits” crowd. Food was delicious. Staff were attentive, even Mr. Aretsky came over to say hello. A little pricey but is to be expected for a restaurant like this. Overall, I liked my first meal experience here and would recommend for weekday business lunch. Can’t wait for their rooftop season to open.
Outstanding food. Oysters were amazing, fried chicken a treat. Excellent service on a very busy night.
Absolutely one of the best dinners ever-
The staff were so welcoming and knowledgable in their menu! It made the night extra fun and enjoyable ¨̮
Probably one of my favorite restaurant week meals I’ve ever had. Definitely coming back here as a regular!
Customer for many years. One of the few business luncheon venues in NYC with a good menu and where one can carry on a conversation.
Everything was fabulous. Comfy seating ina beautiful room. Amazing service. The fresh warm rolls, oysters, crab cake, octopus, brick chicken were delicious. The duck was spectacular with table side service , as was the wonderful baked Alaska. Wish they were open in weekends
Top notch in every way! Would recommend it for dinner or even apps and cocktails in the heated roof top bar
Patroon is a very beautiful midtown restaurant. The food is very good as is the service. The one complaint I have is when you are seated near the kitchen, the noise from the staff is too loud. I found it disturbing at times while I was doing business which from my standpoint is a reflection of poor management. I would go again but ask to sit away from the kitchen only.
This restaurant was recommended to me by a colleague, and I chose it for its atmosphere. The food was alright - not fantastic, not bad. We had a late reservation and waited an hour for our entrees after finishing our appetizers. Then the staff started trying to rush us because they wanted to close - which would have been fine, except we were still eating because it took so long to get our food! Because of this, I wasn't able to treat my clients to dessert! I won't go back.
Thank you for joining us the other night and for your feedback. Our most sincere apologies, as this does not meet our high standards of service. We hope you will be amenable to give us another chance sometime in the future. We look forward to the chance to serve you again.
Excellent food and service
As always, Stefano make this place a wonderful place to be!!
Superb service. Delicious food prepared perfectly. Wonderful wine list.
Keep this a secret. It’s just perfect. Haven’t been in years but I’m definitely making this a regular on my list of favorites. Service, quality and ambiance are just perfect.
Always excellent service and food. Love Stephane, Jody, and Jim.
everything its reputation suggests-- phenomenal food and service. The service level is just right without being overbearing or stuffy. We felt welcomed , appreciated and cared for. so much more on the menu we'd like to try; am sure we'll be back. highly recommend.
From a world class Caesar Salad made table side, to a menu of imaginative and generous dishes from Halibut to the best Rib-eye and Roast Chicken in the City, and of course the omnipresence of owner Ken Aretsky, Patroon is as good as it gets. Expensive for sure, but the food, vibe and service is so damn good, one almost doesn't mind. Wine list is terrific, though a few bottle under $100 might make some folks happier.
I have been a fan of Ken Aretsky’s Patroon for many years! The food, service, and ambiance are second to none!
Great ambiance, food and service. Very expensive though.
Patroon is always good. It is my go to place in NYC where I know I will always feel welcome. The service is always perfect without being affected, and of course the food is superb.
