The food and service were impeccable. I highly recommend this elegant restaurant for a fine dining experience or for special occasions.
Orsay always provides a beautiful atmosphere, delicious food and exceptionally professional service.
The food and atmosphere were really lovely, albeit a little pricey for the portion sizes, and the service was good - attentive but not intrusive - albeit confusing (greeted by at least 2 people before being seated; a 2nd server asked if we would like to order drinks after we had already ordered drinks from our main server). The Eggs Norwegian melts in your mouth - eggs perfectly poached, freshest salad dressed with a gorgeous vinaigrette, and just right potatoes - divine! The hollandaise sauce is light as a feather. A very nice place to splurge on a special occasion meal.
Enjoyed the meal very much. Food was very good. Waitress was very friendly and very knowledgeable . Enjoyable bistro experience.
Fabulous food from soup through coffee and dessert. Lamb shank/saffron risotto - delicious! Coq au vin - not a bit left. Excellent wine, service. We will be back!
We have been to Orsay several times. We always enjoy it. The food and service is good and the atmosphere transports you right to Paris.
The food was good but insanely over priced. We paid $52 for the Dover sole in capers and brown butter. We justified the price thinking it would Paris level- with a full fish then filleted... it was just one single fillet, a bit over cooked and with three measly fingerling potatoes... for 52 dollars?? Sure, it tasted good, so did the coq au vin- but just insanely over priced. You can get that level of food if not better for a fraction of the price at dozens of other NYC French bistros. I think this place is a bit of a tourist trap honestly. We also were constantly fighting for our servers attention and had to ask for bread THREE times.... and the restaurant wasnt even packed! I had high hopes but was very disappointed. Wouldn’t go here again.
The dover sole is outstanding. Enjoyed our dinner very much.
The food was ok for the price, but not great.
Good ambiance and service, but food is pretty flat and overpriced for what it is. Mediocre brasserie.
