    Menu was good, service attentive, food was tasty but Benedicts were overcooked and not enough sauce. Food preparation was overall disappointing.

    Great Experience, super nice! Lou was our server and he was very nice. The only thing is I had no clue tip would already be included our 180$ went to 250$ QUICK! However, the overall experience was great. The food,the music and the people was top tier. Will come back again for sure.

    The Soccer World Cup Final match was on, so it was exciting for a non-soccer fan. The waiters were welcoming, and the food was amazing. I can't wait to go back. French food was a nice surprise!

    I booked a reservation here, since I wanted to try something in the neighborhood. I was a bit weary of the prices for the offerings, but decided to try it out anyway. I’m not sure if this made a difference, but I went on a Saturday night, at 6pm. The food. My wife had the fish special, which she liked, but one of the sides was underwhelming. I ordered a burger, and honestly, it was pretty basic. Venue. There weren’t more than 15 people inside the restaurant, but it was incredibly loud. The music was blaring, so it was difficult to hold a conversation even though my wife was sitting across from me. Service Our waiter appeared to be a bit overzealous, as he began asking us what we wanted to drink before we were actually seated, and had a chance to remove our coats. Then, I thought it was odd that although the hostess tried to seat us at one table, the waiter insisted that we sit close to another party, just in case a larger group entered later. Needless to say, this was not a particularly pleasant experience, and there are no plans to return.

    Celebrated my 24th birthday on December 15th. We were well taken care of. The food was exquisite and I loved everything about Renaissance Harlem. My boy Valentine really made sure my bday dinner went amazing and I’m so appreciative of him and the staff for their efforts. If you’re thinking about making a reservation, don’t think twice about it. You can never go wrong with doing anything here. 🙌🏾

    Service was slow, but we were having brunch so no matter! Server was very polite and made a tremendous effort to get our order in before an extremely large group placed theirs. The reason to go back was the bronzino. We would come back and order two for our table to enjoy 😉 It was EXCELLENT!!! Delicious and beautifully prepared and presented.

    Wonderful ambience- terrific menu options, great bar service and attentive service makes a perfect date night! We shared appetizers, different varieties of sauces with mussels, and well made fries, sautéed spinach leaves & buttery breads to absorb all the flavors😊 Reasonable priced choices, with a few splurge items. It's a local place to enjoy frequently!

    My son and I had went for Thanksgiving…there was a pre-fix menu that was priced very well ($55 per person). The food was delicious. The regular menu was not offered but I’ll definitely go back to try many of their regular offerings. The cocktails were well balanced and taste great. Definitely worth the train ride.

    Sunday brunch was my first time at Renaissance Harlem. My friends and I loved it! I’m already looking forward to going back very soon and bringing my family. I’d go back just for the fabulous, original tuna tartare! The servers were super-competent and efficient, and got all our orders exactly right. We all left in a good mood! .

    My first visit but it won’t be my last. Excellent service and everyone is pleasant and gracious. I had codfish fritters as an appetizer and the French toast with Brioche bread. Delicious In addition to the excellent food I had a delicious cocktail. The margarita was exceptional. I called my daughter while I was there to rave about the margarita. The décor is lovely. I will visit again and bring my friends.

    Visiting from out of town. The service here was really good (Valentine was very attentive and gave us his recommendations; especially the wine). However, the food was just ok. The octopus dish that I got was flavorful, but the octopus was definitely over cooked (I took a few bites before I could take a pic). My friend ordered the lobster ravioli and sent it back. It was less of a cheese sauce and more like a gravy. Again the lobster was over cooked. Over all the food tasted good but didn’t hit the mark.

    Went here for lunch. This is my second time eating here. Food is on the pricier side but it’s definitely good portions and tasty. We had the lobster BLT and there was a red snapper fillet special. Both great dishes. Service was quick and friendly and we didn’t feel rushed. Overall good time would definitely come back.

    I ordered the lobster ravioli and was sorely disappointed. It was a soup-like consistency. I asked if this was the normal way the dish was prepared and was told yes. It is like soup/broth, which is not how it was described on the menu nor what I would expect for a pasta dish. The bowl it came in (which should have been a giveaway) was small and I only had 4 ravioli. For a $21 meal, I was expecting a bit more. I left there STARVED and had to find another place to eat. While the drinks were good, the food was tasty yet subpar.
