It was very good, nice atmosphere, very good wine, but the most delicious food was Chicken nodules soup. I am going to remember this soup for the rest of my life. No kidding. That was perfection. Something that your grandma used to make.

Our entire experience was superb in large measure due to our waiter, Josel, at at the red horseshoe banquette booth.

People at next table shrieked so loudly that I had to leave... steak au poivre was tough. Asked for extra sauce and got bechamel instead of peppercorn... wait staff not as attentive as I would have liked. Not as good as usual. Figure on at least 100 dollars a head. Portions generous, though.

I would but not on a weekend evening. My dinner was particularly salty, especially mashed potatoes. I have been here several times, but not on a Saturday evening. Felt a bit rushed and it was a bit noisy.

It was ok. We had to ask for our complimentary bread despite that every other table had theirs. We were seated right next to order kiosk and I had to move our table a bit so that we’re not in the way.

It's really overpriced for what it is which is a shame b/c I'd do more often for the small bits of food I do like however not at these prices. It's just too much for what they serve even for NYC.

Have frequented this restaurant several times. Our service was unusually very disappointing. Our server seemed more interested in chatting with co workers and the host than ensuring we had water service, drink refills or even the check. Will be back but will ensure we have a different server the next time.

We went for Sunday supper and loved it. Far less noisy than lunch. Great waiter Matthew recommended Chilean sea bass w miso glaze. Best I’ve ever had. Please send me recipe! Also glasses of wine were decent size - hate it when restaurants charge a lot for glass of wine & do a small pour. So DO go to rue 57

I loved this restaurant. The food was delicious and they have a wide variety of dishes for even the most picky eater. Our server was very cordial and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. So much so that he went looking for almond milk for me until he found it! Since I am lactose intolerant. Loved this place and will highly recommended.

Rue 57 trades on its location on a prime midtown corner to lure tourists. I walked by this place for years to and from the train station, and it always looked very inviting. It was a good midway point to meet friends for brunch with its perfect French bistro look, so I decided to take a chance. Perhaps because of the location, Rue doesn't feel the need to make an effort in the kitchen. The food was pretty mediocre. A relatively small burger with (very good) fries was average at best and overpriced. The best thing about Rue was the service, which was attentive and friendly without being overbearing. There are better French bistros with great food that get it right, such as Le Singe Vert on 7th Avenue in Chelsea. My curiosity was satisfied, I guess, but I see no reason to go back.

Always wanted to try this place. We weren't tempted by the Japanese side of the menu, but went French with steak frites and a meat loaf, believe it or not, which was excellent. Wonderful tuna tartare and fried artichoke apps. The wines offered on the pre fixe menu were just fine. The spirits list is limited but has good options. The only drawback is that the place is noisy and crowded, detracting from the otherwise nice, subdued lighting atmosphere. But they do know how to get you out for a curtain.

We enjoyed the dover sole which is always simply and excellently prepared here. Also had the Restaurant Week special dinner. It included their meatloaf - this is the only restaurant where I will order it! Had the tuna tartare with avocado and the cheesecake to complete the special dinner. There were several large groups which added to the noise level. As always, a pleasant dinner prior to the concert.
