The food is always consistently and reliably great here, and I eat eat here regularly. The ambiance inside is really nice, like a Parisian bistro. Outside can be a bit loud, but you can’t expect otherwise on the corner of a busy Midtown intersection, but that’s also part of the ambiance - it’s very Manhattan, and wonderful for people watching. The service is superb. I just miss the old regular menu. It’s still only about half of the pre-pandemic menu. But I’m just glad they’re open.

Excellent food and service. But the restaurant was too warm on a very hot day and staff tries to clear dishes before one is finished. This is a problem in many restaurants. But overall this is a wonderful restaurant.

Service was lackluster. I understand that it’s going to be mostly hands off due to the pandemic but waiting 15 minutes for drink orders and then needing to flag down your waiter to place your food order because we were waiting another 15 minutes is really unacceptable. Sushi is no longer on the menu so it’s mostly French bistro fare which was all tasty. The truffle pasta is a winner. Steak was a bit over our requested temperature. If you want a perfectly medium steak ask for medium rare. Medium was more medium well and we didn’t want to bother sending it back because the waiter was so slow.

Everything was great but they did not have anyone in charge of the service outside, and the service was just incredibly slow.
We sat for 10 minutes before anyone even offered us water. It was a further 10 minutes before someone asked if anyone had taken our order
I had to ask 3 times for the salt and pepper.

Everyone was very nice and friendly, and the food was very tasty, but the organization for the outside tables was simply shambolic.
And It’s not like it was busy because this was 3:30pm and the restaurant was almost half empty.
There were two younger women seating people who seemed to be confused and we’re trying to do each other’s job. Either one of them could have looked outside every five minutes to see whether people were being served.

Had dinner here shortly after they reopened after COVID. Although it was pleasant outside, I asked for a table inside. All of the French doors were open which keep the dining room cool, but not quiet. There is a lot of street noise.
The east /west coast oyster starter was very tasty, plump oysters with both mignonette and cocktail sauces. For a main course I had the steak au pointe with pommels frites w/truffles. The center cut strip loin was cooked to a perfect medium rare and the au poivre sauce was the perfect accompaniment to the thick juicy steak. The special dessert was a chocolate mousse cake served with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Very dense and moist chocolate mousse, delicious.

The food was tasteful and I like the variety of it, but I understand that during the pandemic help might be hard to find but why not shift your waiters to areas that were busy. We were sat their first 20 mins to take our orders and our waiter only checked on us when he gave us the bill. We had to ask other waiters for things. Again, I understand during pandemic times staff might be limited but should shift your help if there’s busy areas

We ordered 2 of the specialty cocktails and they were undrinkable - Lychee martinis. I have never sent a cocktail back but I had to for $15. I ordered a whiskey sour, which again was not made correctly - how on earth can you screw up a whiskey sour??? Food was great though. Delicious chicken.

We have been to Rue 57 several times over the years but this our first time since the pandemic. I’m sure it’s because of the current state of affairs but we weren’t all that impressed with the limited menu. Service was great and the appetizer we chose and the entrees were excellent, just look forward to the return of a fuller menu.

We haven’t been to rue 57 in years and my wife and I had brunch there this past Sunday. I believe the restaurant had only just opened up on Friday due to Covid related closure. The meal did not disappoint. We love this place in I took my wife there for Mother’s Day brunch. It was terrific as usual although quite empty compared to previous years. We love going there for brunch and then walking over to Central Park. Look forward to our next date afternoon at rue 57

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 !
