I am a long time resident of NYC and with my wife dine out frequently.Upon entering Rue 57 for the first time we both thought what a crowded mess we had walked into as we had to wait for our table alongside several tables. the worst was yet to come as we tasted food that was close to inedible.Imagine a French restaurant that has no idea how to make French onion soup ! Imagine a French restaurant that has no idea how to make any French food.
I speak too much.... don't ever think of dining at Rue 57 !!!!!!!!

French Onion Soup was really good. My soup came out at the same time as my main course and it was cold. Service was terrible. We didn’t get any bread or here about the specials like the other tables did.

The server was a bit confused and slow (and got the check wrong) but the main issue was that the burgers were really dry. We return to this restaurang every December but this year someone must have prepared the bread two days in advance. Also, cheese was missing on two out of five.

Always a solid choice for lunch, salads especially good. Don’t love it for dinner, which is the time I was there on this visit - seemed a bit more frenetic and loud. Tuna tartare and salmon dishes were fine, nothing special. Service was efficient, although it took a while for our server to take our order. We appreciated being able to sit at the table for a while after we finished our meal, no feeling that they were hovering to get the table turned.

Have come for years. Have read some bad reviews, but until we experience a problem, we will keep coming when we are in NY. Noise level does not bother us.

Service was atrocious, waited 30 minutes for a glass of wine and our food came out extremely late. The table next to us arrived well after we ordered our meals and almost finished their meals before we received ours. Food was good but incredibly disappointed with our service

We had a very enjoyable holiday brunch and we were especially pleased with our waiter, Royce. The service and food were great. As a longtime NYC resident, I would recommend Rue 57 without hesitation.

Used to frequent this place years ago when we lived in NYC. Popped in for a bite with our 4 and 6 year old on a recent overnight stay in Manhattan, desperate for a stiff drink and nice meal after several hours of time square hell. We were nervous at first - no kids menu, apple juice served in large adult sized glasses, but the waiter was awesome, patient and courteous, the cocktails just right and the food delicious. The kids devoured their burgers and fries and we had a perfect Caesar salad, flavorful Roquefort burger and a “just ok” Salmon with melted leeks and mushrooms. The atmosphere was loud and bustling but also cozy and laid back on a busy winter Saturday.

Great location and good food that is served quickly. Delicious real food that is served in the warm ambiance of Christmastime! Table service was smooth, but I did not feel rushed.

This lively but pleasant for conversation restaurant was, once again, everything we wanted after a late movie or concert. We each found several items to consider and enjoyed our choices, crusted salmon with leeks and mushrooms and salade nicoise. Our wine choice of Pinot Grigio was a good accompaniment. The effective tserver was much in demand, as his tables were full. The restaurant vibes were good, and we had a great time late Thanksgiving Friday.

Server was not attentive once order was taken. We ordered wine by the glass and meals that did not entail additional a la carte items so little attention was paid after this. We did not see the server until it was time to pay the bill.

Late breakfast/early lunch. One of us 6 was an hour late, because of an unexpected delay, yet service was efficient and we weren’t rushed out even though people were waiting. Very classy.

I’ve been to Rue 57 many times with family & friends visiting from out of town. It’s centrally located if you are staying in Midtown and want to be close to Central Park. Their menu has something for everyone and it’s also a family-friendly establishment. A nice selection of cocktails & wine. My most recent visit was not the best experience though because we had a 12:45pm reservation, everyone arrived on time and they made us wait to be seated until 1:15pm. They are always busy but I’ve never been seated that late in the past.
