We love this place. Never disappoints. The atmosphere is great, the service is great and the food is wonderful. And on this trip, the holiday decor added to a cozy, breakfast on a cold winter day.

It was Christmas time in NYC so the streets and restaurants are crowded which may have impacted the service. The food was good, not great. The salmon tasty but not extraordinary. The Kobe beef meatloaf had a lot f filler. The fried chicken was the best of all f the meals we ordered. The roasted Brussel sprouts were adequate but not exceptional. The profiteroles were most tasty. Service was not good with the waitress forgetting the French fries and the tea at the end of the meal. I will not go back. Great setting.

We were given an excellent table and not on top of others. Our waiter Richard was the best. He was so attentive, gave good advice and very friendly. Our potato crusted salmon was so delicious. Thought it would be boring and dry, but was so tasty along with the vegetables it was served with. Would recommend highly.

Varied menu with a wide selection of appetizers, including sushi, and French favorites. The meatloaf is really special - great sauce and real comfort food. The dover sole was nicely prepared. The crispy rice with tuna appetizer is always a treat - not something I have seen elsewhere. Our waiter was attentive and we had a lovely dinner before heading to Carnegie Hall down the street.

Our waitress was very rude:(
The food was great and the atmosphere was great. I asked for a side of ice, didn't receive it. I asked for a side of horseradish, I didn't receive it. She seemed annoyed when we ordered our drinks and food and when we asked for something. She had a poor attitude, she wouldn't clear our table of dirty dishes, even though I tried to handle her some to make room for our other food and drinks. It felt like it was above her to clear some of our dirty plates away.
She was unwelcoming and it left a bad taste for our party of 5.

We had such a great experience at Rue 57!! Six of us ate I waked I lunch there. The service was impeccable! Everything we needed they were there to take care of. I had a delicious grilled cheese on a thick bread with roasted pears and Manchego cheese. We also had french fries for the table with a pepper sauce that was divine! I would highly recommend it

Came here knowing the location made it a little touristy, but perfect for dinner after seeing a movie at The Paris. Ambiance was nice, and it was nicely decorated for the holidays. Service was very very slow. Took about 15 mins for us to get water. My sister ordered the clams and said they were amazing. I ordered the burger and while the meat was cooked perfectly, there was nothing on the burger so it was very very dry. Pretty overpriced, but that's New York.

This was just our second visit to Rue 57, both times for brunch. There was, as before, a huge crowd around the desk for seating g, but with our reservation, we were at our table in just a few minutes. SO BOOK IN ADVANCE! The brunch is varied, but of course very French in influence and really good. This is straight French bistro food, with good wines to match. It’s not cheap, but with this location of course it isn’t. And the ambience is classic to go with the food.

In short, we will be back the next time we are in New York

I’m a Local who enjoys the ambiance of the restaurant but it constantly disappointed with the preparation of the food. French toast repeatedly is undercooked. Tomatoes on the side of Omlettes are cold and raw with a slight grill mark. I Wish the restaurant would carefully prepare food appropriately especially with the prices of each dish.

I have been many times to this restaurant but this time was the best. The mussels were otstanding, the Dover sole tasty, abundant, well presented, and the profiteroles were very eell balanced. In general the food was outstanding. People think that this is a tourist restaurant (because of superb location) but the fact is that is full of locals. Good mix and ambiance.

Was recommended by a local to visit while we visited NYC. Very busy but we were seated right away with our reservation. Was VERY loud...there were only 3 of us and we had trouble hearing one another (were sitting on the far wall and not even in the middle of the restaurant.) We each ordered something different and tasted each other’s meals (kobe burgers, roasted chicken and chicken Milanese) Each dish was just ok...wouldn’t make it again if I had cooked it myself. Service was fine. Didn’t bother staying for coffee or dessert but instead found another place down the street for some dessert and conversation.

I have not written many reviews, but feel compelled to this time. For what I was charged, my dining experience at Rue 57 was terrible (at best). I expected a decent dinner and was really disappointed. I had eaten there before and was in the mood for something a bit more standard. I ordered a burger. I know, it's supposed to be a fancy French place, but I figured a burger would be pretty hard to mess up. I was WRONG! This was the first sit-down restaurant that I've been to in YEARS that gave me a grocery or convenient store hamburger bun ... it must have been Wonder Bread or something ... maybe from the Duane Reade pharmacy across the street. It had no lettuce, was poorly cooked (I asked for medium, but this thing was so rare that it nearly walked itself off my plate), and was just plain mediocre. Actually, let me correct myself. Bob's Burger Palace would be mediocre. This was just plain terrible. I should have saved myself the $25 and gone to Wendy's or, worse, White Castle ... anything but this place. To make matters worse, the wait staff tried to take my fiance's food multiple times while she was still eating. She finally gave up because her food was sub-par as well. Maybe they were just trying to clear tables, but it was incredibly annoying. You should have seen them try to shove the french onion soup (which we did not order) in front of us. It took multiple attempts to let them know that we did not order french onion soup; it was actually one of the tables next to us. Maybe Rue 57 was just having a rough day, but I won't go there again. If you plan on ordering a burger, do yourself a favor and BYOB (bring your own burger).

We dined at Rue 57 at 8pm on 12/3 to celebrate our engagement in NYC. Hostesses were kind and we were seated on time. From there on, the service was toxic. Waitress forgot my drink order (a beer). We ordered the popcorn shrimp which was delicious as suggested by other guests. Waitress eventually came back to take our dinner order. Linguine w/ Chicken Meatballs, the special, was good. Unfortunately, we had to ask the busboy for bread (and another drink) after a different server delivered our food. Blue Ribbon Burger was very good; fries were cold. Our waitress spent the majority of our visit standing feet away from our table thumbing through her phone and arguing with the manager about a prior guest. We waited patiently for her to clear our table and inquire about more drinks or dessert. We waited for an embarrassingly long time as she stood feet away and decided to skip more drinks and dessert when finally approached. After settling our bill, she made her way to the hostess station and returned to ingeniously say, "by the way, congratulations."
