Exactly what a classic French bistro should be! Delicious food, tasty wines, finely crafted drinks and attentive service. We'll definitely be going back!
Orsay is my go-to place in my neighborhood. The food is consistently good and I always receive a warm welcome whether I am dining alone or with friends or family. The bar is terrific as well. I recently brought my 85-year old father here for dinner and he loved it.
I made a reservation for 8:40 and that had my crew of four waiting for over 30 minutes while they seated everyone else who walked in. It was obvious they chose people who looked elder and more expensive over us. I have been here for brunch many times and enjoyed it but this was incredibly rude and prejudice of them so I will not be returning. The steak was small and not special for $35 and a few pieces of lettuce. There are better French restaurants in the city.
The service was above and beyond from beginning to end. They really made our anniversary dinner extra special with complimentary champagne and dessert. They were very kind and attentive, but never made us feel the slightest bit rushed.
Noisy and somewhat disappointing food at full price
All good! Burgers were fantastic! Waitstaff were super friendly.
We had dinner here with extended family. The salmon entré I had was delicious. I think everyone was very happy with their choices. They have a nice children’s menu and delicious desserts. Highly recommend. Very friendly service. The ambience is lively French bistro. It’s very authentic and delicious.
The restaurant was outstanding.Eating out side was wonderful.Service was sublime as was the food.No downside.Loved it.
Orsay is a little bit of Paris on the ues. After all these years, the ambience is still lovely, the food’s still wonderfully fresh and well-prepared and the service is great. Tres bon!
Orsay is a classic. It is a neighborhood spot with quality food. Not a cutting edge scene, and that is a plus
We had a wonderful lunch, and were well served by Carlos Robles. This restaurant has become my favorite place to dine with my sisters!
The food and service was excellent. It was a little loud but worth the noise.
I would recommend with the caveat that the noise level is way too much. If you are looking for a nice dinner with a friend or friends with whom you intend to have a conversation without yelling at each other, then too bad.
Lauren was a great hostess!
I included in my reservation that this was a birthday dinner for my mother, mentioned it to the host AND the waiter and nothing was done - not that I was expecting a sing-along, but maybe "happy birthday" written on the plate is easy enough. That aside, the oysters were the tiniest and most flavorless I have ever eaten anywhere in the world. The escargot was classically flavored and as good as I've had in France. The Ahi tuna special was delicious though I was surprised it was prepared in "chunks" over a Mediterranean-seasoned pile of mashed potatoes. the coq-au-vin was also classically done, hearty and delicious. The "ile flottante" dessert was absolutely insipid. The meringue that is traditionally a blank canvas that comes to life with the creme Anglaise was as even lacking sweetness and left to its own devices in a pool of lifeless creme that tasted more of milk than of eggs, or cognac or even vanilla. That was a real bummer of a way to end a celebratory meal. The service was neither good nor awful. The waiter really was on auto-pilot. An empty cocktail glass remained on the table even after red wine was ordered with the main course, all the way until the end. And by the end of the meal, our plates clearly finished, the waiter must have passed by at least four times and it never occurred to him that he too is capable of stepping in to clear a table if the bus-person is not around. The table itself littered with bits of bread was never swept (which surprised me, as it is a standard way to prepare the table for the final course). Overall, this was a let-down for the first visit to Orsay. I might return with a craving for the coq-au-vin, but otherwise, I don't think it will be on my radar no can I reccomend it with confidence. I will say, however, that the friendliest member of the staff we encountered was the host.
Always delicious - they know how to do it!
Classic neighborhood restaurant that never fails to deliver excellent food, great service and a tasty beverage. Highly recommends the oysters. Got to enjoy a nice evening with a dear friend who lives in the near me and this is a go-to-spot!
First time at Orsay for a birthday celebration....and it did not disappoint. Food was very good and service was excellent. It felt like a true French bistro. Loved it.
I will recommend with caution
Be patient with slow service, be ready to talk loudly to your companions and expect good but not great food.
Nice place for midday but very noisy for mostly middle aged crowd. Food better than average but bread with croque monsieur was soggy.
The food and service has been always consistently good, overall very plaisant Brasserie.
We went to celebrate the retirement of a beloved client. The food was delicious and plentiful. We really enjoyed ourselves and ordered dessert too! I highly recommend Orsay for any occasion.
Fabulous restaurant for a four person lunch meeting. Delicious!
pretty mediocre French brasserie. Too bad, since the menu is so appealing.
It would be nice if knowing that it is a birthday celebration, as it was stated in the reservation, the restaurant would have done a little something to acknowledge that.
Nice lunchoen dining outdoors enjoying the last days before it's too cold.
Typical french bistro, we felt just like in Paris !
Great food and loved the terrasse.
I had the steak, yummy.. the waiters were great.. an enjoyable evening.
They forgot my birthday 🎂
Charming French restaurant! A neighborhood gem! Good for special events!
Perfect place for lunch when you want to catch up with an old friend.
Always a good choice for a relaxing dinner. Service is excellent from the moment you walk in.
Excellent food and service
The restaurant was out of their special entree - Duck orange - by 8 pm. The Poulet Roti was obviously cooked hours ahead of time and reheated by microwave before serving. The chicken tasted reheated and tasteless. The Fries were excellent. The Restaurant cut back substantially on the size of their tuna tartare “Japonais” appetizer and did not even serve a cracker with it. They did not offer a second piece of bread or refill everyone’s water glass. The busboys grabbed plates and wine glasses (with wine remaining) before everyone was done. The check was brought without anyone asking for it. In the past we would rated Orsay 4 stars, but this experience fell way below expectations. A disappointment all around.
Special because I dined here when it was under another name . I lived in the neighborhood in the late 60ties. Orsay’s is now the new kid on the block (not that new) i Found it beautiful and charming. My husband and I had s wonderful dinner of baked Dorado fish and to die for Cauliflower . We started with the perfect martini and moved on to Onion soup ( superb) and the mushroom soup. We ended our evening with coffee... chocolate cake and ice cream. Besides the delicious dinner the manager and staff were so very friendly and welcoming. We have recently moved from California to Florida. We look forward to returning to NYC and Orsay’s more often!
Special of short ribs was tough and fatty. Unbeatable. Matre d gave me s hard time when I brought this to his attention
Orsay is fabulous, I love brunch on a Sunday when I visit NYC!
Cool, historic restaurant on the upper east side right on Lexington Avenue. Went to brunch here and was a great overall experience. Definitely try the homemade sausage!
Very good dinner. Service excellent and so is ambiance. Reminds me of the brasseries on Blvd St. Germaine. We shared superb jumbo shrimp, I had the roasted chicken and my wife had an excellent steak frites. Prepared perfectly. Shared the profiteroles for dessert. Paired with a nice Macon Villages. Highly recommended.
