C’était délicieux !
Fries were great! Food was decent but pricey I thought for the quality. Waiter was nice enough, but seemed very hurried. Dashed away from the table and rushed us through ordering. I had requested a candle (in resy) for one of our diners desert as a birthday celebration, but the desert was served without a candle. Overall not unpleasant but didn’t leave feeling like I would go back in a hurry.
We are outside which was most pleasant.
The service was spotty but the waiter was nice.
I had a hamburger with cheddar on top. The cheddar cheese tasted so salty that I had to remove it from the burger in order to eat it.
My friend had the Swiss cheeseburger and hers was fine.
Great service, but the steak was incredibly tough!
We had a lovely waiter who recommended the crustless quiche special. He didn't know what kind of quiche it was at first but soon returned with the ingredients. It was delicious!
I’ve been to Orsay many times. Always excellent. The mussels are my favorite.
The vibe, service and wine outstanding. We only had apps. Based on those the food was so-so (tuna tartare, cheese plate) - not much flavor and like u get at any average restaurant. the excellent wine list and space more than made up for it. The outdoor space is fantastic, right off lex so it’s perfect noise levels. You can be on the restaurant patio or the pergolas/street seating. But if it’s standout food, this is not the place. But a solid place to have a good evening
We love this restaurant.
The oysters were unreasonably small.
Very disappointing. We’ve been here many times. Service was especially poor.
It was the perfect spot to eat lunch and people watch . Service was wonderfully attentive , and food was delicious! Will definitely return.
The food was good, the service was good but felt rushed. Waiter kept asking if we want to place the order, we have not been served the drinks yet.
Covid precautions taken. Food delicious and service excellent. Orsay doesn’t disappoint.
Lovely restaurant with ample outdoor seating. Food, although tasty, not up to par. My husband‘s chicken was quite dry although flavorful in it’s gravy. The muscles I ordered were in a delicious coconut broth but the muscles were very tiny. A French restaurant should serve plump PEI delicious muscles. The $16 glass of Chardonnay I ordered was served completely flat. The waiter graciously brought me another glass from a fresh bottle. When I made the reservation, I asked for outdoor seating. When they called me to confirm, I confirmed outdoor seating. When I got there, they put me had an indoor table so I had to ask yet again. A lovely restaurant but details are not up to par.
Artichoke was very good.
Chicken was good with spinach and garlic.
Wines by the glass fair
Greeted by two individuals. One wearing a mask properly. The other wearing his mask under his chin. I asked him why he did not wear his mask properly and he responded, “It’s optional.” This is bad policy. One with a mask, one without.
I think it’s time to give this place a rest.
Very expensive, even compared to similar French bistros of its ilk. Regardless, food was very good overall. Service was unobtrusive and timely. Great place to go with family if needing a good meal on the Upper East Side.
Je me suis régalé !
Excellent food and excellent service.
I particularly enjoyed the chocolate mousse.
Good value, great staff. We were happy to see a New York returning to normal.
Unfortunately service was not up to par. We’ve come many times and place was packed! Clearly needed more staff. Too bad it was a special celebration and we were embarrassed in front of our friends.
We have always loved Orsay. One in our party ordered an omelet and when the main course should have arrived the maitre d’ came and told us the choice was not available - no eggs? Our guest chose quickly something she did not like and our plates arrived cold.
There was a long hair in the hamburger, the manager quickly changed the main course but did not deduct the price from the bill. Not the best of experiences
A delightful atmosphere with delicious food and attentive, professional service.
Toujours super !
always a must-go when I make it to the city. The food is fantastic, the staff is so pleasant and the vibe is so chic!
Excellent service, excellent food
College reunion and birthday!
Gorgeous outdoor dining under roof in full on rainstorm, so beautiful with plants and lights. Food outstanding and service flawless.
Always dependable for food, service, and ambiance!
A very demanding diner created a bit of a disruption. Food delivery was mysteriously slow.
Another great meal. Great food and terrific service.
Incredibly loud, average food and poor service - not rushing back anytime soon…
Consistency and reliable -
Expensive restaurant with tasteless food.
The chicken was dry and the mashed potatoes tasted like it came out of a box.
Substitutes are extra even if you have an allergy to what they are serving.
File the money, there are much better restaurants in the neighborhood.
I would suggest you pass on this restaurant.
Excellent steak tartare main course. Watermelon salad (special) was quite good. Oysters were small and very average. Sea bass main dish was average +. A nice place that actually does remind one of restaurants in Paris.
Excellent choice for outdoor dining - in our case brunch. Not a budget location but not a budget buster considering the neighborhood. Great choice after visit to Frick Madison or even Metropolitan Museum.
Loved it. Waiters cordial and fun. My favorite place. Look forward to going there
Orsay is always great but the vegetarian pasta was not tasty at all...it should be removed from your menu.
