I'm a downtown girl and rarely travel to the UES but when I do this is my go-to place. Service is excellent, food delicious and all covid-19 protocols are in place. The heaters are a nice touch. The one thing to be careful of (and this is no fault of the restaurant) is if you are sitting on the Lexington side be careful of oncoming traffic. The tables are basically in the street and you can hear and feel cars whizzing by as you're eating.
We have always had such a wonderful time here and are so grateful to the kind staff for making this holiday a beautiful one for us.
My boyfriend, parents and I had a lovely Thanksgiving meal here! The food and service were wonderful. The outside setup was great and safe.
Excellent as always
Food and service was very good but we asked to sit on the balcony where a table was open and were told no; probably because we are not regulars.
Lovely (and warm) outdoor seating
Staff attentive. Moved table due to small child. Staff very courteous...
Ate outdoors. Table nice and food was good.
Outdoor dining set up well.
Best bloody marys. Awesome tuna tartar. And Best eggs benedict in town
I eaten on outside on the porch several times. Excellent and friendly service, good food - definitely a go to neighborhood place to dine
It was a very chilly day and raining so we asked to sit inside. We had to keep our coats on through lunch!
The duck salad Is delicious.
Orsay has some of the most authentic French cuisine in NYC. I had a lovely salad, a delicious wild halibut, and decadent chocolate lava cake for dessert. The servers treated me very well, even though I'm not one of their UES regulars. A great place to go for the ultimate NYC French restaurant experience.
Perfect French bistro with delicious food, great wine and outstanding service!
Food was fabulous! The service and wine was perfect!
Great outdoor dining with plexiglass between each table.
Served perfectly the way Orsay always was before the pandemic. Lovely afternoon!
Just love this place. Have never had a bad meal here! 👍
Orsay in the middle of a pandemic? Sure, why not? Although the menu has contracted, this UES establishment's culinary and service standards haven't changed in the least. Enjoyed outdoor seating, first-rate service staff, and unforgettable food and wine as always.
We had a lovely dinner. Your outside dining was COVID perfect.
Rushed us out. Very rude staff. Super expwonsive.
Great food, great service
So welcoming and hospitable..outdoor setup is lovely..
Didn’t honor our reservation.
Fabulous food terrific service and comfortable ambience. What more could you ask for. Hope you keep those outdoor spaces with more heaters for weather yet to come!
One of the best on the upper East side. I have had New Years Eve dinners there for the last 5 years. An elegant place.
Great and romantic I. The taunt
It was great, service and food was perfect!
I will definitely come back again!
It was 38 degrees outside, the first really cold day. The outside terrace was open, as were the street tables. The door to the restaurant was open, blowing very cold air from both on the inside table I was assigned, right in front of the door - it was Absolutely freezing. I asked to be moved, nothing available, understood. But that table should Never have been allowed. I and my guest walked out. Even with a blanket and our coats on it would have been unbearable and we would have paid to freeze.
Beautiful outdoor setting w plentiful heat lamps. Service was very attentive and food was excellent: tilefish special was outstanding and moist, pepper steak was flavorful. All dishes were also visually attractive. One of the most comfortable settings as the weather cools because of the heating, extensive canopy, lucite divisions between outdoor tables. Whole sides of try he restaurant open up, so even the spaced indoor tables seem very safe. Just a terrific dinner!!
I live Next to the restaurant so it is very convenient to me and the staff is very accommodating.
I ordered chef special dish of an open faced smoked tuna sandwich. It was awful. Tasted like eating a cigarette.
Tends to be a bit pricey, but the quality of very good and staff very responsive.
Neighborhood favorite. Nice job during Covid. I felt safe
Excellent dinner - outdoor dining was well planned with heaters and plexiglass separators. Food was delicious with excellent suggestions from the staff. Definitely a favorite.
As usual, a great experience. The person assigned to my table had to leave I guess, but immediately Sean took care of all before I realized it, with the utmost courtesy and smile under the mask. The menu is delicious comfort elegant food that reminds me of my childhood. The service is always extraordinary. I have been coming here for years and was my mom’s fav when visiting NY. Both management and staff are excellent hosts. Every person I invite here makes it their favorite too. Great for business or relaxation. C’est magnifique.
The BLT-A sandwich is my favorite for lunch and I usually have half to take home for dinner or a snack later.
Outdtanding in every way!!!
Food was excellent, service was perfect and I felt they took the necessary precautions regarding covid.
