Pre theatre special occasion. Steaks were good. My son found a hair in his potatoes and they left it on the bill. We didn't make a big deal about it as we were with family and trying to enjoy ourselves. The sommelier was wonderful.

We had a fantastic meal, pre-show. We had a 6pm reservation. We were seated on time and our waiter asked what time we needed to leave to get to show on time. He asked about allergies and told us things he loves on the menu. The meal was lovely, I particularly enjoyed the beef tartare and the salmon main course. They were out of my first choice of wine, but recommended another that was similarly styled and priced. We enjoyed it. Definitely recommend and would go again. Desert was yummy!

Was there on a Friday evening prior to a show. We constantly had to chase the servers vs a well-managed flow from the kitchen. Waited over an hour for our entrees. Despite calling ahead the day prior and arriving early to explain to the server about how I wanted to secretly pick up the tab, the restaurant screwed it all up which was embarrassing. Disappointing experience for us all....

Each time I dine at Aureole I can't wait to return. The food is delicious and creative without being pretentious. Service polite. Kitchen accommodates requests for substitutes or changes.
My friend and I could hear one another. Hope to be there again soon,

I took my wife here for her 30th birthday, I told them this in advance. They pulled out all the stops and made her birthday dinner very special. The staff were exceptionally great with one of the server taking the time to write a list of places we should visit while we’re in New York.

Very pedestrian, server was nice but the food was not very refined. More like an everyday restaurant in any town. Quality of the ingredients was fine but very uninspired food preparation.

Nick was fantastic, helping us efficiently get through a fantastic summer 5 course tasting menu with more than enough time to make the theatre. We also enjoyed the grower's champagne options on the new wine list. A wonderful experience all around!

The food was very good. Oysters, asparagus soup, duck, scallops all perfectly cooked and handsomely delivered.

The service was good but suffered from sudden lapses. Soup poured and servers abscond before checking and there is no spoon on the table, drink orders disappear into the abyss.

The lack of follow up service to check on delivered items means the lapses leave you trying to flag someone down, interrupting what would be a nice meal.

Lastly, the 4-top near the entrance is under a rush of cold air and shouldn’t be set there.

We've had the pleasure of eating at Aureole twice and the service is always fantastic! Food is really great, too. This time we enjoyed the foie gras and a spring salad very much. Their bartender makes amazing cocktails as well.

The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Although I dined solo, I was not ignored or given sub-par service as has unfortunately happened in other establishments when I've dined alone. The staff at Aureole made me feel completely comfortable and welcomed. The server asked if I was seeing a matinee (I was) and he promised to have me out in time (he did) without ever making me feel rushed. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant, their delicious food, and the wonderful staff.

It was extremely noisy and I had asked for a well done burger — my burger was rare and blood oozed out of it — I lost my appetite — I won’t be going back there for a while — it was a bad experience this time. Tables were too close to each other— you could participate in others conversations if you wanted to — really bad and disappointing

Today’s visit to the Dining Room was not up to usual standards. Focaccia was stale and dry. Two diners ordered the same dish and one was missing ingredients. Waiter struggled to describe the amuse bouche. There was a mixup on the bill. On the bright side, the foie gras was large and scrumptious, and the duck divine. The desserts were also quite good.

We dine with friends from France in NYC twice a year when they are in town. Because I have thoroughly enjoyed Aureole for lunch with friends, I thought it might be a good dining experience to have dinner in their intimate dining room in the back. I made reservations for 4 and from the moment we arrived, the service was impeccable with absolutely no wait time!
Aureole’s food is delicious and served in delightful presentations. The white asparagus soup is delicious and makes for a perfect appetizer. The organic chicken was tender and boasted a wonderful jus! Best of all, our French friends thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience and we will definitely be back on their next visit!

We dined here on a Saturday night. It was quite noisy at first with the pre theater crowd, but once they left it was pleasant. The food was wonderful and service very good, however, we felt it was quite expensive. We ate in the Liberty Room which is more casual and very nice but I wouldn't rave about the ambiance.

Good restaurant, pre theater. They understand the time pressure and still the service was not hurried and the pre fix menue was excellent. Some of the best salmon I have eaten and my wife's tenderloin temperature, tenderness and taste was perfect. Expensive, but a value in our view; we will return.
