We went on a Saturday night we were one of 5 tables occupied. The place was dead, our waitress said no one comes during the weekend which we didn’t know. We normally have lunch there which is very good.
She even said they shouldn’t be open during the weekend. I wouldn’t recommend dining here on weekend nights. The food was average not very many options if you are gluten free or a Vegetarian.
One of our favorite NYC restaurants, Brasserie Ruhlmann continues to deliver white table cloth service in a relaxed, convivial atmosphere.
Although I had made a reservation 6 weeks in advance, we were seated at a table that is essentially for walk ins and is situated near a main the alleyway for guests and waiters to move around - we were constantly bumped and pushed in to. Management was beyond rude and argued with me in front of my business guests when I requested to be moved to another more convinient table. They claimed they "called me" which is true but in their voicemails confirming the reservation there was no mention that we would be seated at the worst table in the entire restaurant. I used to be a proud patron of the restaurant in the past but will never take anyone there again and will not return- the staff needs a training on how to behave and respond respectfully to guests and there needs to be much clearer policy around where guests will be seated when they do/ do not make reservations. I felt belittled and extremely disrespected by the hostess and the manager. Horrible experience.
Always enjoyable in a French way. A cool Gallic reception but good bistro food.
Croque Monsieur diabolically good, especially with the always-tasty cup o' fries. Great place for guilty pleasures.
A classic NY eatery. Intriguing wine list. We went for the NY restaurant week menu, highly recommended. Excellent location for shows and Carnegie Hall.
Thank you very much.
Was looking for something in Midtown for Restaurant Week that was close to our hotel. This seemed like a great choice and sure enough, it was even better than we expected. Elegant yet not stuffy, the choices were great and the service attentive. It was also fun to watch the action at Rockefeller Plaza. I can't imagine what it's like during the holidays.
Lovely Brasserie in a great location. Super busy and lively! Food was wonderful but service was a bit slow—maybe because it was a busy Friday night
From their Restaurant Week dinner menu: Winter Squash Risotto was absolutely delicious, Free Range Chicken with Garlic Mashed Potato was fantastic and both desserts was the perfect pairing for our after-dinner coffees.
This is a tourist trap. Poorly executed but attractive location because it is near Rockafeller Center. Food is mediocre and the service is well intended, but just ok. You can do better elsewhere.
The place is lovely, and our table was great. We loved our server. Sadly, the main courses (crab cake appetizer and the Scottish salmon) arrived tepid. There is nothing worse than a cool piece of fish. It’s better for lunch.
This restaurant is FABULOUS. First the Hostess was wonderful, sorry did not get her name. I was alone and she gave me a GREAT TABLE near the window and being that this restaurant is at Rockefeller Plaza it was an amazing sight. The Tuna Tartare for my Appetizer was so delicious very fresh, just perfect. This restaurant has specials for each day and OMG I am so glad the Server suggested the Blackened Swordfish. It came with my favorite White beans and veggies. Unbelievably delicious. Then I ordered the Creme Brulee with fresh berries and fruits and it was the BEST CREME BRÛLÉE I have ever tasted; even the desserts in Paris was not as delicious as the one I had today. You didn’t need to add salt or pepper to anything. The flavors were PERFECT. My glass of wine from Bordeaux lovely. I can’t wait to return. Zoran my Server was absolutely so pleasant and it was a joy to see really everyone so happy with smiles on their faces. It was an enjoyable afternoon.
My wife and I like their sister restaurant, Orsay. We thought we would give this a try. Our waitress was great and the wait staff were attentive. A totally different experience from Orsay, but still worth it. I would say it was a lot more upscale from what Orsay is.
Crab cake and sushi were excellent! Great friendly service!
Day after New Years place wasn’t busy but service great. Doesn’t always work that way.
Love this place but they were out of Fois grais-very disappointing
Nothing was done to make up for it
Ruhlmann rules! Authentic french ambiance and food was excellent. One of the family members greeted us and attended throughout our dinner. Charming hospitality. This family has vineyards in northeastern france, which we will visit.
