I went during restaurant week and was disappointed.
The appetizers and desserts were terrible.

A great experience! Had a business lunch and were placed at a nice sized table which really helped for my meeting. Special thanks to the sous chef Katie for coming out at the end of our meal to speak for a few minutes. Thank you!

Restaurant was a little disappointing. The meat was too dry, soup was a little too salty. Service is great. This place is way overpriced for the quality of food. It is just a restaurant for businessmen in the area.

I’ve been to Aureole a few times since inception. The food has been excellent for all those times that I’ve been there, except this time. I took my family there for restaurant week lunch, but it was very disappointing. For appetizer, my husband and I picked the trout (we kept picking out tiny fish bones, the appetizer was very salty as well), and my daughter picked the squash soup (very salty as well for soup). We all picked short ribs for entree, the worst dish ever, extremely salty. We didn’t even finish half of it. That was a total disappointment to all of us. Won’t go back again...

The service by our waitress was absolutely terrible. She forgot to put in our side of Brussels sprouts we had to remind her. Finally, by the time they came out we were done with our halibut.

We would have liked the option of having our $200 bottle of champagne left on ice at our table. We waited way too long to have someone refill our glasses.

The service staff that delivered the food and took our empty plates was great and did a nice job being efficient.

The food was excellent for each course we had.

Pre fix theater menu at $100 offers three courses which are satisfying if not incredibly filling. Quiet and pleasant service makes it an oasis in the 42nd Street area. Very close to Town Hall.

The Service was wonderful and very accommodating. When we asked for something off-menu, the reply was "we'll make it happen." While most things were delicious, I do have to say the chicken was surprisingly a bit dry, but that didn't stop me from eating every bite...the sauce in the dish was phenomenal. Any Oenophile will be very pleased with the selection and overhead cellar.

We had a very lovely evening as always. It’s is a lovely haven from outside craziness. The setting is just gorgeous as well. The dishes were beautifully prepared with great care for food allergies. Venison so tasty, salmon scrumptious. Foie gras amazing. The amuse Bouche was delectable. The cocktails were interesting and pretty to look at. Tarte Tatin dessert with hot caramel sauce yummmm. Even tea service was in lovely iron pot.
My favorite for pre theater or for just a long, gracious meal served by consummate professionals. This is how a special dinner should always be.

I have been to Aureole many times over the years, especially for pre-theatre dinner.
This last experience was the best yet. The food was outstanding and the service attentive and warm.
This is a lovely restaurant for adults who actually want to converse and dine at the same time.

I have to say this was more of an experience than a dinner. The drinks were perfect as was the lobster dumplings and the tuna sashimi with spring onions. The cod was beautifully prepared. We had the cheese plate and the pistachio dessert both were phenomenal. Our server was also extremely accommodating when we asked a lot of detailed questions. We loved it and would definitely return!

Great food, service, and ambiance. A bit pricey for frequenting, but I have already recommended it to someone. I did not notice the "bar scene" but I did notice that the bar was stocked well with notable liquor names and the seats looked comfortable. John was our server and was wonderful. The service from everyone was great all the way to a woman walking me toward the restroom rather than just pointing. Very nice evening.
