The food was AMAZING!!!! the drinks were superb! Great conversation with staff. I can't spell the name, so I don't want to butcher it. Very nice conversation with staff member from South Africa. Also, the owner gave us complimentary dessert after great conversation. A beautiful relaxed atmosphere, yet still classy and sexy for a romantic date. I HIGHLY recommend, and I will be returning

Although a small group of us went to Brunch on a Saturday morning, the attention and service throughout was world-class. The vibe of the restaurant was hip and classy with a very cozy vibe.

The food was well presented, generous portions but most importantly it was delicious. I hope to return to this restaurant at another time to enjoy dinner.

Went for Christmas Eve. Fixed menu for 65 PP. Drumsticks for app, salmon for entree, Chocolate mousse for dessert. Seemed expensive for the menu. Food was generally good. Mousse, just ok.

Our experience at Renaissance Harlem was fantastic! My family enjoyed a holiday brunch together on a Saturday morning. We had excellent service, from the host to the bartender and waiter, and were not rushed through any part of our meal. The food was fabulous and we had a wonderful morning. Thank you!

Good idea, terrible execution. The ambiance is nice, a couple of my friends and I got together for a later dinner. The food wasn’t that satisfying. The service is okay.. the people are nice.

This was overall a good place with service and food.
It did not help that there was construction outside the restaurant as they were closing up the outside for winter seating.
The food was a bit salty but overall we enjoyed it.

I had a great experience here celebrating my 40th bday. They were very kind as I was regrettably almost an hour late arriving to my guests! I do appreciate their professional service and the food was beyond excellent! I will definitely be back for date night family dinners and beyond! Welcome to Harlem!

We were the only ones in the entire restaurant who didn't get the complementary bread to start. Very good food. We'll probably come back to try other dishes

Food was delicious and the service was fine. Wine isn’t that great and the noice level was pretty high. Not because of the music but because of people.

I welcomed this neighborhood gem when the restaurant first opened. I hosted many business lunches here. The waitstaff and bartenders are exceptional in service! It would be nice to have the same relationship with the owner as well.

It could be a nice place to go but it was empty when we were there. This might be a good thing for some, but we were expecting a little bit of Harlem hip. Perhaps at a different time.

My boyfriend and I always wanted to come here since we live in the neighborhood. I love that they have a lot of options on the menu, and the food is good! I had the lamb rack with mask. The meet was cooked to perfection. But most of all I loved that the music was not too loud. We were able to talk without telling. It was quite romantic! Why do most places blast music anyway?

Our first time while visiting our daughter and her BF who live in Harlem. They ranted and raved about the food and for good reason. Appetizers Cod Fritters and Seafood Basket were excellent. Entrees Red Snapper, Rack of Lamb and Seared Scallops were all Superb. All plates were cleaned, nothing left, no leftovers. Dessert was also very enjoyable and excellent as well as the service.

Great food and atmosphere. Definitely worth the time and money to visit.

I have been here before and both the food and staff are great. My mother isn’t an adventurous eater and doesn’t like going to too many restaurants. We brought her here last year for her birthday and she loved it so we brought her back this year to celebrate her 84th birthday. Again she loved the food and the staff was attentive and friendly. And she was so excited when everyone sang happy birthday and played Stevie Wonder (and of course she loved the cheesecake). She even did a little dance in her seat! I highly recommend this place.

A wonderful experience! Specialty cocktails - two with a bourbon base, and a menu that recognizes that sometimes you want breakfast at lunch and sometimes you don’t. My bacon, onion, and cheese omelette exceeded expectations, as did my son’s steak sandwich. We enjoyed our meal so much we hated to leave and indulged in dessert. I definitely recommend saving some room for their chocolate mousse, it is to die for :)

On one of the hottest and most uncomfortable days we've had so far, the door to the restaurant was wide open with the AC is on. It was very uncomfortable in the restaurant. I had to ask to have the door closed after about 15 mins once I downed 3 glasses of ice water and it took another 15 mins to close it.
There weren't enough patrons in the restaurant to turn the music up so loud after 9pm.
