Was very underwhelming. Heard good things about this place from friends who went, so we tried it for Harlem Restaurant week and we had both - special menu and ordered things off the regular menu. All dishes were very lackluster with not much flavor and/or overcooked. Service was also very meh. What could have a been a cute neighborhood good quality restaurant just didn't live up to our expectations, sadly.

I loved the food, not the usual brunch. I had lobster hash, two plumb claws. the waitress was mindful of our needs.

I really had high expectations for the restaurant, but it’s started going down hill real fast. They were listed as a participant in Harlem Restaurant week, but upon being seated was never I offered that pre fixe menu. Took them almost 10 minutes bring us the menu.

The specialty cocktails were a bit pricey, but were actually very good. My friend ordered a glass of white wine, the glass had spots and had a debris in it.

I ordered the salmon which was overcooked and had to sent back. The carrot ginger soup was rich in texture, but had a bit too much ginger.

The cheesecake was a winner and a must have.

I think it was tacky to add the 20% gratuity unto the check for a party of 3ppl.

Renaissance Harlem is a wonderful place to have a French/Seafood dinner for a great price. We had seafood risotto, codfish fritters, branzino and short ribs. Everything was outstanding. For dessert, mango sorbet and herbal tea. The service staff are friendly and eagerly engage with you in french. This restaurant is centrally located on 132nd and Adam Clayton Powell (7th Ave).

Waiter and staff were very nice. However apps and mains took a very long time to come out. One guest’s cold entre was served many minutes after the hot entres. Some dishes were good (striped bass) and some were below average. Lobster BLT was mostly fries. Maybe just an off night in the kitchen.

Really enjoyed my first experience at Renaissance Harlem. Lately I’ve been feeling like the restaurants and dining scene in Harlem has been going downhill in quality and service than years prior, but Renaissance Harlem proved me wrong. Great service and food from end to end. I’ll definitely be returning and this may just be my new favorite spot in the neighborhood.

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
