Very good on all counts- had the oysters and the scallops. Fresh, well prepared- wish there were a few more vegetables.

I had a reservation but then realized the show I had tickets for was an hour earlier than I thought it was. We went over to Ruhlman and they were more than accommodating. They were kind, professional and the hostess was wonderful. Overall a great experience.

Business Dinner with Colleagues, having a view of the tree at Rockefeller wasn't the icing on the sundae.

We commented that with some heat lamps the restaurant could keep the outdoor seating open during the holiday season for cocktails, weather permitting of course.

We visited for Thanks Giving Dinner after the Radio City Christmas Spectacular Show. Very close to Radio City Music Hall and located just across Rockefeller Center. Perfect location. We could see the Christmas Tree from our table (unfortunately, it wasn't lighten up yet ). Nice and friendly staff with excellent service. We had Beef Carpaccio, Thanks Giving Turkey, and Rose wine which were all delicious. Highly recommended.

Crab cake was the best I've ever had. Skate fish tasted too fried. Intense choc cake & excellent skinny cappuccino rounded out a very good lunch.

Enjoyed our brunch/lunch on Sunday. Hostess and well as wait staff were very accommodating and friendly
Enjoyed our choices. I had the salmon tartain with Fries. Came loaded with salmon that was very tasty. DH had Eggs Rockefeller also w fries and a salad. He said it was delicious
We had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and did not feel rushed at all. Right down the block from RCMH for which we had 2 PM tickets

Food was good, as was the service and ambiance. Nice outdoor seating with view of Rock Plaza, but quite expensive.
Check out the menu online before you go and decide for yourself if it is worth it.

Mediocre food preparation. Pleasant servers. Too expensive for portion size. A basic tourist restaurant near Rockefeller Center. Good for early theatre dinner if food quality is not too important.

Braisserie Ruhlmann's is like an old friend, and I had not seen him/her for too long. It was nice to enjoy an outdoor meal and pretend I was in a sidwalk cafe in Paris. I was boring and had a burger, while my guess had one of the fish entrees. Both were very good. I did miss the mussels which were not on the menu -- how could a French cafe not have mussels? Please bring back.

The staff is wonderful, the location very convenient, and the food is fine -- enjoy!
