    Very "hip" place - loud, crowded, bar packed. Food and service were both good. Couldn't hear across the table, so don't go to have a conversation with your dinner partner. Started annoyed with 6 texts, 2 phone calls, and 1 e-mail asking me to confirm reservation. Each one answered. Over-hyped place - won't go back

    This cozy but very loud restaurant is home to perhaps the most outstanding Steak au Poivre I have ever had. The cut of meat was excellent, cooked to a perfect medium and crusted in just the right amount and consistency of pepper... served with a perfectly seasoned sauce of exactly the right consistency... and of course accompanied by a basket of crispy Frites! It doesn’t get much better than this! Exactly what I would expect from an Alsace heritage which, arguably produces the best chefs in all of Europe!

    This was an amazing find on this past trip. It had an old school feel given all its history in the city. My son LOVED the burger. This is a kid who doesn’t like sauce or much adornment on his burgers so the meat has to be spot on - this burger didn’t disappoint AND the pepper sauce was so good, he ATE ALL OF IT!! All the food was divine and definitely a staple for our yearly visits toNYC from now on!!

    日本人の私にとって、メニューの英語がとても分かりにくく、さらにレストラン内が薄暗く読むのに大変苦労した。でも、店員さんの親切な対応で頼んだ料理どれも素晴らしかった。 値段の方はというと、一番安いもので10ドルから高いものだと50ドルくらいなので、ニューヨークであの立地と考えるとめちゃめちゃ高くはないと思う。 なのでもしこれを読んだ日本人の方がいるなら、ニューヨークへ行く際全然是非寄ってみて欲しい。

    Good food, Poor service; table not ready, then after being directed to the bar were told we couldn’t transfer the bar bill to our table. Waiter was slow and inattentive, didn’t provide plates for the bread, didn’t once check in on the food, had to be asked three times for a drinks refill and provided dessert menus but didn’t come to take an order for 15 minutes....

    Fantastic night at this iconic new york restaurant. The steak au poivre was perfectly cooked and delicious. The choice of sides was great and the grilled broccoli was really tasty. A huge wine list was also good with a massive selection of french as well as us wines. Would definitely go again next time in NYC.

    I LOVE RAOUL'S! My husband and I meet for late dinners here and always roll home full, tipsy and elated. The service is really always outstanding. Everything from the bar/ host staff's greeting to the experience at the table makes us feel so well cared for; I find the interpersonal style of the team to be very direct, professional, and effective, but also always warm. This place is such a New York institution; it's an absolute privilege to enjoy it from time to time. Thanks to the whole damn team!

    Amazing classic French style restaurant. The food is exquisite and the atmosphere fantastic. It’s not for those looking for a quiet night out as noise levels are high but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Efficient staff, eclectic artwork and food so delicious that my mouth waters at the mere thought of it! Go!! It should be illegal not to!

    Raoul’s is the best. It’s our regular go-to because while the food is really great (get the frisbee salad no matter what else you do)- the people are incredible and make you feel so welcome and at home. Plenty of celebrities come to this old school restaurant that has stayed popular for over 40 years but they treat everyone wonderfully and care more how you behave than who you are
