I used to love this place but the last visit was just bad. The food was cold and portions were smaller than before; we were outside in the cold and they have no heaters; and the server was just rude and inattentive.

Food was terrible. I ordered egg Benedict and it literally came as an egg on top of a muffin break, with nothing else. I could have made it home myself. Taste was bland as well.

The brunch menu was extremely limited and did not include coffee or a drink as do most menus. We asked for bread and that was “extra”. While I love this place I felt that it was overpriced for brunch and I would not go back.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch at Rue 57 this weekend. After more than 20 years dining here, they continue to deliver good food, friendly service at a great location. While we did dine outside, that's nothing new as they've always been among the few in Midtown to offer alfresco dining.

My dish was the French Dip and it's among the best you'll ever taste outside of Paris. The bread was perfect (not to chewy like some baguettes) and the meat was exceptional. My wife had Salmon Lox on a bagel which she devoured.

As to our history with Rue 57, my wife and I both first dined here as tourist (before we met) with our parents in the late 90's. Now we both live here and Rue 57 remains one of our favorites!

This place has exceptional service. The professionalism they carry is impeccable. The food was impressive especially the skirt steak which was nice and juicy and chewy, the way I prefer all steak to be. I am definitely going to make it my common place to eat. I would also like to mention this restaurant serves for multiple occasions but open table would only allow me to make the choice of one.

We were sitting outside on Sixth Ave - so it was noisy - no fault of the restaurant. The food was good as usual. Great place in midtown for a business lunch.

Rue 57 is one of our favorite bistros in the city. Always reliable food and service. Great, relaxing atmosphere (when you can eat inside). Since we're still in Covid-imposed outside dining, it was different this time, but since we had great weather, it worked fine. Fortunately traffic is still relatively light, so eating on the sidewalk isn't too bad and it was easy to carry on a conversation. Service was still good and the food was great. Try the crispy artichokes!

Rue 57 has done a very nice job of setting up sidewalk tables. They have wide sidewalks and many tables are under awnings. The food was excellent, how I have missed a quality French Onion soup! The service was friendly and attentive.

These are very hard times for restaurants. But it seems Rue 57 has risen to do their very best. The quality of the food remains very good, though I wish the menu had more selections. I'm sure they will be one of the ones that last through this pandemic.

Thank You
