The tuna tartar was good - better than the last incarnation- but not as good as the ORIGINAL incarnation! Wasn't crazy about the mignonette sauce for the oysters.
Chilean sea bass was excellent! My friend's salmon looked very good. Love their French fries but didn't order this time as I like to share them. Missed the sushi (limited menu until they get back to a higher capacity. Can't wait. Favorite place to sit is near the open windows but not on the street. We were in the back.

Lovely evening with friends who haven’t been together for more than a year ! Restaurant had tables set far apart and appeared to follow the rules of only 50% occupancy. Our reservation was at 7 but we wanted to visit awhile before we ordered which we did and no one tried to rush us ! The food was excellent ! I had a juicy crispy plate of fried chicken which came southern style with a waffle and choice of sauces and syrups. Both my friends chose a marinated skirt steak which came with a generous serving of fries which were crispy and delicious. All the dishes were well prepared and attractively served. Rue 57 was a fav place before the pandemic and it will remain that with its much anticipated re opening !

So great dining at Rue 57 - a New York institution. My salad, scallops and beignets were all delicious and the service was great. Look forward to going back soon.

Like many other reviewers here, we showed up for our reservation to celebrate our anniversary last week, eagerly anticipating our favorite table at this usually wonderful French bistro. When we arrived, the place was dark, no notice was given to us, just a small sign saying CLOSED. Compounding the problem was the fact that there were no other reservations to be had anywhere in the area. We ended up having to eat our anniversary dinner at the Halal cart! Not happy that no one contacted us, or that Open Table still allowed the reservation to be made!

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED! I was very upset when we rushed there and left MOMA to be on time for our reservation made through OPEN TABLE only to find the restaurant closed. OPEN TABLE should take this off their reservation platform. It was a Birthday celebration for my daughter and almost ruined the whole evening. We went to Long Island City and had a lovely dinner at another restaurant. VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH OPEN TABLE FOR LETTING ME MAKE A RESERVATION AT A CLOSED RESTAURANT!

I made a dinner reservation for RUE 57 thru OPEN Table.
I received a confirmation for my dinner reservation from Open Table, I confirmed the reservation.

When we arrived at the Restaurant on Saturday night at 8:00 p.m., the Restaurant was closed, and had been closed for quite some time (tables and chairs were stacked up); the bar was empty of any bottles; no lights on etc.). So it appears the Restaurant RUE 57 was not not available and potentially is still not available - my question is: Why did OPEN table accept a reservation for this restaurant if they were closed? Where is the due diligence - to know, and not enable potential customers to book the restaurant.

I reached out to Open Table, but not response.

This restaurant is CLOSED!! Set it up as a meeting place for a group of friends- got there only to find it shut - looks like it’s been quite a while since it was open. WHY would it still be listed on Open Table? Absolutely annoying, to put it mildly.
