We had read that the onion soup was one favorite, so I ordered it. It was great. The Rue Burger was also very good. The place is very nice. I understand the place was understaffed, nobody wants to work, now a days. Anyways, we had good service and the food is great.

My husband and I came here for our 5th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time! Our server Richard was great and the food was fantastic (special shout-out to the Truffle Tagliatelle!). Would recommend and we are looking forward to coming to NYC and Rue 57 again.

There were plenty of empty tables but they made us wait. The hostesses and maitre ‘d did not do a good job in turning the tables and sitting people. They told everybody that walked in it would be a 20 minute wait. It was not necessary. Just adequate experience.

Ru 57 lives up to its longstanding reputation. Greatness as soon as you walk through the door including host stand. Bar, Bartender were first in class. Menu is excellent for a power lunch. I would recommend the tuna sashimi as an appetizer. Ambiance is exceptional.

Rue57 is lively French brasserie. A good place to catch up with friends over lunch or to sip a glass of wine after shopping at Nordstrom's or visiting the Art League. The rocket salad with chicken was light and delicious. The mango sorbet was a nice topper for dessert. Service could be more attentive though.

Slow service, waitress poured wine into our sparkling water and did not offer to replace either. We got an opps instead of an apology. Ordered a side dish that never arrived. All tasted fine, but bummer of a service experience.

Table location was lousy. Food mediocre. Service poor. It took about 20 min for the waiter to greet us and take our order. This was during brunch I was there with my goddaughter reuniting after 5 years. When the food arrived drinks were not delivered yet. The restaurant wasn’t really that packed but the waiter looked snd acted overwhelmed. I’ve been going to this restaurant since it opened more than a decade ago and I live around the block. This is the first bad experience with it. The food with was surprisingly lousy as well and the service was deficient. The tab was close to a 100 dollars. I’m not encouraged to go back, unfortunately.

Service was great! The front of house team was able to honor my corner table request. I love a corner table. Drinks arrived accurately and on time and the food and service was amazing. Looking forward to seeing you again real soon.

Thank you for a great date night!

Nice ambiance but the service was poor. Took 30 min to get a waiter to come over and when he finally did he was pulled to another table mid-order and then took another 15 min to come. Food was average even after the long wait.

We sat outside on a lovely July evening and had a wonderful experience! We had two servers, I cannot remember our initial servers name. He recommended wine for us that we loved! Our second server, Carlos, was so friendly and helpful. We started with popcorn shrimp that was delicious and then had sliders, a burger, and the salmon which were all perfect. To finish, we had the creme brûlée that was DIVINE!!! Would recommend this restaurant for sure!
