They have the best services, foods, and staffs. I loved the atmosphere, the music, and most of all the food.
You’ll also be able to see a wine cellar above you when you’re walking inside of the dining area near the bar. It always caught my interest to how they get up there - by stairs (stairways) who knows.

Love Charlie Palmer and dry creek grill in healdsburg so decided to try signature restaurant in NYC. It did not disappoint food wassooo good. Service was impeccable and friendly. Definitely recommend for a special occasion or if you are on expenses because it is not cheap but well worth the experience

I went with 12 ladies for a pre-theater lunch and they could not have taken care of us any better. The wait staff was attentive and ultra professional. Our waiter was genuinely concerned that we had enjoyed our lunches. The pix fixe lunch was wonderful. Nice portions and delicious. They even manged to get all 122 lunches out at the same time!!

I chose Aureole because of its proximity for both me and my lunch partner. I'd been past it many times but never ate there. We had such a wonderful time. The food was great (both had the Summer Salad), the service was very attentive and the noise level was perfect for having an easy conversation. It would definitely choose Aureole again. It's a beautiful setting and perfect for a business lunch.

I dinged this restaurant one star because of the odd table they gave us. We arrived promptly for our reservation and informed them we did have a theater curtain to catch but gave ourselves an hour and a half. Despite the fact that we were practically the first ones there they gave us, a party of 4, the worst table in the place. It was right by the entrance. Why they did this is a mystery. We were well dressed and behaved. Service at the table was excellent as was the food. But the table . . .

The food was exquisite and the service was very attentive. We ordered the tasing menu and it was extremely ctreative and delicious. The waiter spoiled us with lots of homemade chocolates and truffles to accompany our dessert. It was a very good experience with the exception of one detail. The AC was blasting on us the entire time during dinner and it was freezing. We had a late dinner after the show and I asked the waiter to turn it up as the restaurant was thinning out and it was too cold. It got better, but was never warm and at the end of our dinner it seemed to be blasting again. There was no reason for the tempature to be that cold.

Very average for the price you pay. We had a three course pre-fix. After most people ordered he told me they were only doing two courses which was not the menu. I think this restaurant has some history but is resting on its laurels. I won’t go back; not worth it

The dining room has the feel of a hotel dining space. It does not feel unique in any way. The ambience of the original Aureole located in a brownstone with the aroma of flowers upon entry is greatly missed. The service was very good. The beef, however, was ordered medium and it arrived quite rare. Could have sent it back for further cooking, but didn’t want to make a fuss in front of business guests.

Lovely decor- but on being seated a large party was obnoxiously and swearing frequently. We asked to move our seats and they were very accommodating. Went to order a Hendricks and told they were out of that gin. Also no Elder-flower liqueur, just elderflower syrup. Settled on a vodka martini. From there on it was smooth sailing and the food was excellent, service great and they gave us 4 desserts! We left stuffed and happy.

We took our 15 year old granddaughter for her birthday celebration after a matinee at Mean Girls so the pretheater menue worked well for two of the three of us. The birthday girl chose ala carte. She chose the same delicious summer salad with delicious pickled radished and watermelon with a fabulous dressing that my husband’s been trying to recreate ( unsuccessfully) so far.
There were many delightful surprises throughout our meal. Our wait person, Amanda, who had recently arrived from California was friendly, charming and professional. Here’s the first surprise: she sent a virgin Maitai to our table for the birthday girl. Second surprise: the pretheater courses were just as generous as the ala carte courses. Third surprise: our fabulous wait person Amanda delived 4 desserts instead of the two ordered, one of which had Happy Birthday written on the plate! It made us all feel special and pampered. I dont know whether the generous plate of truffles and yummy marshmallow bites were part of every dessert or coffee service or another gift from Amanda but they certainly were apreciated by all of us! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We will definitely return!

Not very creative and charging a premium price. Very tired food making a pretense that is not delivered. There are many, many other better, places at all price levels. Price is not my issue as I am willing to pay for creative, well executed food. This effort did not meet those hurdles.

This was our first time dining at Aureoles, and we really enjoyed it and we'll definitely come again. We were seated at our table right on time and from then on the service just flowed and was seamless. The dining room is quiet and intimate. Our waiter (wish I had gotten his name) treated us very well, was friendly and very knowledgeable regarding the menu. Each dish was beautifully plated and delicious. We chose the 3 course option which was more than enough to eat. I had the lamb entree...just tender and great. The desserts were outstanding. We highly recommend this restaurant!
