We LOVED Aureole. The food was delicious and the service was better than any other restaurant in New York that we've been to in recent memory. The wine director, Morgan, was also great. His pairing recommendations and overall approach to service made the meal wonderfully memorable. Thank you, Aureole.

Went to Aureole with my family to celebrate my birthday after a matinee show on Broadway. Really enjoyed our meal and the waitress was sweet enough to get us four dessert samplers in honor of my birthday, because we couldn’t decide on just one or two!

We were disappointed in the food . The flavors were nondescript and my partner’s veal was stringy. We mentioned this to the waitstaff and he did not seem to care. For the price, we expected more.

The food is beautifully prepared and the service is very attentive but the "new" Auerole is dim compared to the original location. Just two vases of flowers and it didn't have a romantic or calming sexy vibe. It was indistinguishable from any restaurant and seemed somewhat commercial. I expected a lot more and that's why I was disappointed in finding Auerole ordinary. If you are looking for an interesting tasty meal and good service it will suffice but I wasn't blown away and I'm not dying to go back.

Long wait for our table (over 30 minutes). We were ushered to the bar and given complimentary champagne.

I notified the restaurant that this was a birthday celebration. There was no acknowledgement. No candle. No singing. Disappointing.

Other than that, we enjoyed our food and drink. Service was prompt and friendly, but could have been more “elegant”.

We went for the Restaurant week promotion, and all our selections were excellent. The food is unusual and carefully prepared. The atmosphere is relaxed and the tables are fairly far apart. I would definitely return for the regular menu. Very convenient to Broadway theaters as well.

This used to be may all time favorite restaurant, although I wasn't able to visit in the past year. I took a friend last Friday, bragging how wonderful the food is presented and, of course, an outstanding taste. Apps/entree/dessert were bland. How did the manage to send out six tasteless dishes? Perhaps the restaurant week was to blame but an establishment like Aureole should be shining during any occasion. Very disappointed. Won't go back there.

Went for lunch during Restaurant Week. Liberty Room has a nice atmosphere. Caesar salad was tasty and nice portion. Soup was cold as it was poured into the bowl at the table. Entrees of pork and Branzino were delicious. Pork was very tender. Desserts were wonderful. Nice touch to add chocolates with the dessert. Service was exceptional.

Went for restaurant week.
Ambiance was excellent. The Dinning room is beautiful.
Branzino was perfectly cooked
The leek gratin was delicious.
Ordering a salad was kind of a waste since there is not much talent needed for salad...
The pork was really good (much better than Caffe Boulud's!!)
Nice experience. Not awe inducing but really good.

Brussels sprouts were the best thing I ate. Fries were also good, though soggy & soft at the bottom of the cup. Veal presented like pork belly, replete with large deposits of fat on 2 of the 4 pieces. Interesting idea; not a great dish. Not sure if I just got a poorly butchered cut but it's not something I would recommend or order again. Cocktail (I am Groot) was decent.

Aureole moved from their Upper East Side location to the new midtown location and this is the first time I was able to have lunch here for Restaurant Week 2018. The food is still delicious and the wait staff is excellent, very friendly and attentive. Had cocktails with my lunch and that was fantastic. Would glad recommend Aureole for Pre-theatre dinner or classy dinning experience with friends.

Five of us went for restaurant week.
The service was great. Drinks first rate. The amuse bouche was a non starter.
My appetizer, a white bean soup was annoyingly small. My friend disliked his salad, the leeks were loved and an à la carte fois gras was terrific.
The main courses were all terrific, branzino and pork shanks. Desserts were fine. We had eleven drinks among us and with tax and tip it came to$100 each. We all thought it was well worth it. Fun!

We went for restaurant week. We waited quite a while for a table and waited another 10 minutes for anyone to come to our table. The warm leek appetizer was warm for 2 of us and cold for the third. The entrees were fantastic - fish, the pork shank, and the pasta. We enjoyed the desserts, including little cookies that came out with our desserts. We also ate a lot of bread. The wine selection was excellent. Service was fair.

I was very disappointed in the food. We were there for restaurant week and all three of us ordered the same appetizer and main dish. The appetizer what is it best bland and the main dish was slightly better. I had much better expectations from this restaurant. Perhaps it’s worth a try but not on restaurant week!

No hint of the previous Aureole is present here as concerns ambiance and dining experience.
Dishes are carefully prepared, complex, but no more so than at similar dining establishments. Noise level in the Dining Room was uncomfortably high, and tables too close to each other.

We came here during the restaurant week. They changed their menu on the day we got there, which is completely different from the one on their website or on NYC restaurant week website. Food portion is small, and doesn't taste fresh. Definitely not Michelin star restaurant quality. The service was so-so just like any regular restaurant you go to. Very very disappointed!
