Brasserie Ruhlmann Ratings and Reviews
Overpriced and not that great. Went there because we had to be at NBC studios right after, but the food was mediocre. My salmon wasn't bad. The tuna tartare wasn't bad either but small (guest photos make it look bigger). Wine was also expensive there. $212 with tip for 2 seafood entrees, 2 seafood appetizers, and 4 glasses of wine. Will not be going back, there are plenty better restaurants in NYC.
Great place for a special lunch with our son during the holiday season. A bit noisy and crowded at first but then quieter down as the lunch crowd thinned out. Recommend getting there after 1 pm if you’d like a more quiet atmosphere. Menu and service was top notch.
Terrible. I will not return. I had reserved a table for an important business lunch. We were squashed into a tiny table between the front door and the servers’ station. The servers then rushed us through lunch. Food was nothing special. The restaurant has a good location next to Rockefeller Center but that is the best I can say about it.
We had dinner here before seeing the play Chicago. Greeted with smiles, sat with ease and couldn’t have picked a better place. They’ve been there 35 years and there’s maybe 15 tables in the place. It’s a small romantic dining room that makes you slow down and take it all in. Great find for us!
My wife and her friend purchased tickets for the Christmas Show at Radio City and had lunch at the Brasserie, which is located a block away from the theater. My wife uses a rollator to walk, so walking in NYC and being accommodated in some restaurants - especially with the massive crowds we experienced - could be challenging. However, the receptionist and the service personnel at the Brasserie were very accommodating and courteous and treated us exceptionally well.
The menu selections were excellent, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was energizing and the service was very good.
It was very exciting being in NYC - especially close to Rockefeller Center at Christmas.This is the third year in a row that my wife went to the Christmas Show at Rockefeller Center and the third year we had lunch at the Brasserie. We hope to continue this tradition for many years.
The restaurant was nearly empty, although it is across from the famous NY Christmas Tree and all the other places in and near Rock Center were brimming with holiday folk. There were a lot of staff hanging about, pushing wine. The food was horrible. My salmon was lukewarm and over done atop couscous that tasted like it came spiced as it was from a box. My companion had an enormous white plate of soft greasy noodles with pale white rabbit on top. Ugh. WIll never go back. Expensive and dreadful.
This was our second time at the restaurant. It was very busy. Service was excellent but it did take a while for out crab cakes to be served. They were delicious! However we also had the Brussels sprouts and they were not as tasty or crunchy as with our previous visit. Overall, everything was very good.
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.
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
