Service was excellent. Food very good.
Everything was great. My only complaint was about my Salad starter... filled with various different vegetables, but lacking in flavor. The chairs along the window looking out can be a little rough to sit in as the marquee across the street is for ever changing. But generally we like this place, great wine list, convenient to PA, not cheap but good food and service is worth it.
Food was good. Problem, like other restaurants, too much salt as seasoning
we had a 1 PM business luncheon. restaurant was busy, animated but not too crowded and we cld have a private conversation. waiter was attentive but gave us space. scallops were excellent as were asparagus. fries a tad over done. very well done.
If you have Broadway tickets and plan to do a delicious lunch before the show, Aureole’s the place to go! The service is wonderful ( the server asks you immediately if there are any time constraints). The food is both healthy and exotic and the unique iced tea selection is a great alternative to water or seltzer ( if you’re not drinking alcohol). The presentation of the food is exquisite and although the portions are on the small side, you leave the restaurant feeling satisfied and not overly stuffed so that you fall asleep during the first act! I will definitely return to Aureole for lunch or dinner!
We ate there because we had theater tickets at Sondheim, which is right next door. We ordered from the pre-fix menu, and the food was excellent! We ate in the Liberty room, which help keep the noise level down.
The food and ambience was very good. The service needs improvement....or our waiter in particular. My party of 5 arrived at 5:45pm and ordered off the pre-theater menu. However, by 6:30pm we still didn't receive our appetizers and only received the wine about 6:25pm - the first bottle we ordered was not in stock. We had to leave at 7:40pm to make our 8pm show in time - so the desert was completely rushed which was too bad. So I recommend the food but give yourself extra time if are catching a show. Also, the main neon sign across the way from the Liberty Room can be jarring at times - but you are in Times Square.
It was pretty good; but I was expecting great, and was a little disappointed. Tried the diver scallops, the burger, and tagliatelle. All okay. But none had a wow factor that we have experienced with Charlie Palmer in the past. Very convenient to the theater district, however.
My wife and I are here for a pre-show dinner. They have a separate pre-show menu, but we ordered off the regular menu. Food was great (I got filet, she got salmon), and our waiter was very attentive and personable. We would definitely go back.
Pre theater convenience choice
Been there before. Food is good
Price was too high for the quality of food that you get. Our server was awesome!
Delicious food, expert service.
This was one of the worst meals I have ever had in an upscale New York restaurant. Risotto was very salty. I send back pasta as it was also too salty to eat. In addition it was tasteless. I had salmon instead which was ok. The dessert was dreadful. It was called a raspberry tarts...no raspberries just some jelly in thick cram with a hard shelll.....they should be ashamed serving this food
Never disappointing , spot on. Wonderful menu and attentive service.
Food was good. Chicken excellent. Hamburger very good. Would have liked a salad entree I think it is expensive for pre theater lunch.
Excellent experience. Perfect for a business lunch. Wonderful food and service.
Great food and service. Attentive staff. Perfect business lunch setting.
Stopped here before seeing Dear Evan Hansen, just a short walk away. Had a 6:00 reservation for the 8:00 show, no problems. The wait staff was helpful and attentive. When I used the restrooms could see and hear wait staff bounding up and down stairs with trays.My wife had the white asparagus soup and Taglietelle pasta. She loved both. I had the small portion risotto as a starter and the duck at the servers suggestion. Excellent meal, and the duck wasn’t as heavy as I thought it might be. I had the Lemon +Lime dessert. The lime sorbet was wonderfully tart, but then the lemon bar seemed too subtle.
Excellent meal and service
Very high quality cuisine. The balance of flavors are outstanding! Love their ice cream, simply melts into bliss in your mouth.
A gem in theater district. The food was outstanding. The pre-theater Prix-fix menu was exceptional. Service was superior. Beverages were nicely prepared
We totally enjoyed our experience. We went to celebrate my birthday with our teenage children and everyone was thrilled with the menus and the food. I highly recommend and will return again soon!
An oasis in Times Square area
The food and service were impeccable, The service was attentive but not overbearing. Our lunch , salmon, duck breast were prepared perfectly. The hazelnut dessert was exceptional.
Consistently outstanding every time we come here.
We don't come to NY without one dinner here.
Everything here was absolutely perfect from the reservation booking to the moment we left! We could not be any happier with this NYC dining experience. We started out at Carmine’s to try a popular NYC restaurant but there were no res left for the night and it was 1.5 hour wait so we found this place a short walk away and were so so happy we did! Tourist Resturants are over rated, this place is worthy of your time, travel and money. Beautiful inside and out, expansive wine collection and the food was just amazing! Perfect temp, flavor and presentation. We had a table of 5 and the service was awesome as well. We ordered the duck, lobster, chicken, and apps, all were delicious!! We are well traveled food snobs and this place was certainly on par with many of the great dining experiences we have had around the US and Caribbean. The space, location and atmosphere played a big part too, it’s really the whole package! Our server was wonderful, he was knowledgeable for being new on the job, very engaging, kind, professional and without the out dated pretense you still see in many finer dining places. We truly enjoyed being there and dealing with the staff, eating the wonderful fare, and we will certainly recommend to anyone we know in or traveling to NYC!
The service was impeccable and the ambiance was ideal for a date. The food itself was wonderful, the delightful interplay of flavors and made my date and me incredibly happy. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone going on a date or just eating a meal with a good friend. 5 stars out of 5.
One of our favorite restaurant in Manhattan, we met with friends for a wonderful gathering. We chose the 3 item option. We all started with the seared foil gras, which was stunning flavor and quantity-wise. One had the salmon entree which was cooked to perfection, that is, definitely rare and moist. The rest of us had the duck breast which was also just right and delicious. It was paired with a duck confit made with the leg meat; this had a strange taste oddly, and none of us could eat more than a bite or two of that. Very unusual for an Aureole entree. Desserts were distributed for sharing on the table as the last course...not my preferred approach and this was done without forewarning or consent. Nevertheless, they were all delicious, but left each of us hoping no one at the table had a communicable disease.... Despite these little oddities (for Aureole), we were seated in the Dining Room at one of the best quiet booth/tables, and enjoyed relaxed conversation, wine, and re-aquainting for nearly 4 hours. A lovely time with only small blemishes.
The food was absolutely great! My friend and I both loved everything we ordered. The only downside being that our server seemed a bit preoccupied and it took a while to get our desserts and coffee. Thought two hours would be sufficient for dinner before a play but we just barely made it to the theater. Overall it was a positive experience.
They sent over a complimentary dessert and made sure we had plenty of time for theatre. Lovely
Great experience prior to theatre. Kobe beef appetizer out of this world. Staff took great care of my family. Excellent choice for a nice French dinner.
Great as usual.
Swordfish came out under cooked. Sever did not ask how food was after delivering or clearing plate
I opted for the 3 course a la carte menu, which was very filling. The amuse buche was a very nice smoked salmon roe tasting. This was followed by the "Apple & crab" appetizer.....tender chunks of lump crab on top of brioche toast, with frisée greens, paddlefish caviar all mixed with a green apple & cucumber dressing, garnished with ripe avacadoes.... All very refreshing. Next, as a main course, I had the whole poached lobster with leaks and baby carrots. The tender lobster meat is served a delicious Beurre Blanc, on top of a lobster 1/2 shell, so all of the meat is already picked for you. I chose the cheese plate for dessert...Lihue was a beautiful selection if French & Italian cheeses, served with French bread and fruit with honeycomb. A very nice dessert option for us diabetics. The service here was spot on, with an excellent "by the glass" wine selection. I can't wait to return!
In the Liberty Room where the Food was great but it was the service that really made it fabulous. Every person we encountered was excellent - personable, knowledgeable and efficient. It is now a must do pre theater for me - and am l looking forward to trying their more formal dining room as well.
Great food beautifully presented and attentive service.
Aureole is one of the finest restaurants I've been to. The food was exceptionally fresh and the chef took great care in preparing it to the best it could be. The salmon was described to me as sublime, the chicken was the most moist ever eaten and the pork chop was cooked to perfection.
The desserts was as inventive as they could get.
All in all a superb restaurant
The food was fantastic and the side mushrooms were absolutely fantastic! All 3 of us had different dishes and we were all very impressed. I look forward to going back soon
Service was good in the liberty room. Furniture etc was not in great shape, although it is to be expected with the volume.
We much enjoyed the 5 course taster meal. Cuisine was innovative and delicious with course servings at a relaxed pace that made it a wonderful Friday evening for a date., Service was superior and accomadating in adjusting the courses for one of us who is gluten free.
