Came here while on trip for my Birthday. Wish I could’ve ordered off dinner menu, but the chicken soup is best I’ve ever had, and everything was great! Coming back soon! Thanks much!

Perfect spot for long lunch; loved the prix fixe meal but also many excellent choices from main menu. Sushi was a nice unexpected option.

Excellent service and food. We booked again after they served us prior to a trip to the theater the previous evening. The staff on both visits were very friendly and helpful - a waiter called Richard was especially good.

First I want to say is our waiter was AWESOME! Unfortunately I didn’t hear his name when he came to the table. But I do know he’s been working there for 18 years and has 2 children that he adores.
Anyway, the food was awesome!! I had the meatloaf and it was delicious! Hit the spot after being outside for hours watching the marathon. My husband had the skirt steak and said it was great. My cousin had the roasted chicken and she said it was very tasty.
Oh I also had one if the BEST dirty martini’s I have ever had! Especially that they had the blue cheese stuffed olives!!
I would definitely go back!! Give it a go!!

Perfect date night restaurant. Drinks were outstanding, and the food was incredible. It's not easy to turn meatloaf into a gourmet dish, but they did it. Fantastic!

Hugely overpriced for the listless service and substandard food. The skirt steak I ordered was of average flavor but tough as nails. Fries were curiously cooked. The place is packed with locals and tourists and the noise level is the highest I've ever experienced. Take your money and run!

We've been fans of RUE 57 for some 20 years ... before several other french-style 'bistros' arrived in the neighborhood. RUE 57 remains #1 vis food & drink, service and ambiance. We've just moved into the building above, so I expect we'll continue to visit and entertain at RUE 57 on an even more frequent basis than we have in the past.

Despite having a reservation we had to wait for a table. It was so noisy we co in lent hear each other without shouting and it was so dark everyone was using torches on their phones to read the menu!!
It’s supposed to be in the style of a french brasserie NO it isn’t anything like one at all.
My burger (very french!) was served in a dish. It was impossible to cut up in a dish. The fries had so much garlic sprinkled on them they were inedible. Two course and two glasses of wine ended up being $178 with “discretionary “ tip.
My tip would try somewhere else.....

Noisy and dark. Otherwise good food. Somewhat pricey, but that’s probably the position of the restaurant.

Although this visit was not the best due to inattentive wait staff and our table being so very close to the next diners, the menu provided many options and the food was tasty.

Halibut was overcooked ( but tasty) and meatloaf only ok. No one asked for feedback on the food quality.
A bit noisy for conversation across the table.

Service and drinks were very good, however, we weren't pleased with our meal.
Salad was overdressed. Entrees, fair.
Dessert- profiteroles bland. Tasted as if previously frozen.

We had a reservation for 6:15 Friday night before a show at Carnegie Hall. Traffic delayed us shortening our time available for dinner. The team at Rue 57 were very attentive and worked hard to service our needs. The meal, although rushed was fantastic. I had the mussels with dijonnaise sauce, all were using the amazing bread to taste the sauce. We will be back for a more relaxed meal.

Always reliable, year after year. The special lunch menu features many of their faves (although most have upcharges) from salads to salmon to the fab tuna tartare & fried artichokes. One warning: beware of falling clam sauce.

Large bustling restaurant barroom room space. Friendly touristy crowd. Food was pedestrian. My Salmon was over cooked.
The waiter was attentive as was the rest of the staff I just didn’t see the restaurant as a place for foodies
