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.

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
