Designed by partner Jean Denoyer, Orsay strikes that difficult balance of sophisticated-chic in a warm convivial atmosphere. Dark mahogany raised paneled walls meet Art Nouveau styled arches in a deep, creamy butter color. The floor is a work of art, Italian mosaic tiles in warm tones of precious metals hand laid in a beautiful fan pattern that floats in waves across the expanse of floor. Banquettes with high wood backs topped with frosted glass panels provide privacy if wanted, and the low, soft lighting emanates from Art Nouveau period chandeliers that Denoyer had custom designed. A 20-foot long zinc-topped wood bar shipped in one piece from France, and French doors that spill onto the sidewalk terrace, completing the feeling that you are in the 9th arrondisement in Paris. This sophisticated and elegant Parisian-style brasserie marries modern French cuisine and classic brasserie fare. Orsay's award-winning wine list includes all 300 predominantly French and American varietals.

Absolutely wonderful the Tuna Tartare was the best ever. I went on a Wednesday for the Prime rib and they cut it at your table. Perfect. The sides , potatoes and spinach so delicious. My dessert Pannacotta so smooth and the berry sauce perfect not too sweet. I loved my Red wine by the glass; Cote De Blaye a great suggestion. Everyone was soooo pleasant. I can’t wait to return. Every day they have a special entree. I must , I will try everything.

This was my first visit with their new menu. The food was simply delicious and the menu has many appealing options. We were fortunate to be there on a night that was not very busy so the noise level was acceptable. The monkfish in a tomato curry sauce is delectable. Grand Marnier crepes a nice finish to the meal. Wines by the glass can be pricey but excellent.

Orsay is dependably very good-excellent in service, food, atmosphere, and value. It is quiet enough to have a good conversation, a rarity in typically more crowded New York restaurants. On this particular occasion, the maitre d' went above and beyond. Another guest had taken (was given?) my umbrella. As it was pouring rain outside, he gave me his own umbrella to use. Well done!

it's too noisy, so much so that one can only hear a portion of the conversation when 3 or more people are there. but the food was good as well as the service. so it's one giant trade off.
