We went here with two friends for brunch . I will say you cannot go wrong here for brunch or lunch. Great atmosphere and service was excellent.

Brunch -2 *’s for service because we were constantly rushed. Barely sat down and waiter wanted to take our drink order - went on from there, leading up to waiter standing behind my husband as he was putting in his coat, so the table could be cleared. Did not love the eggs Benedict - ok - but would definitely order the French Toast, etc again.

Very pleasant waiter, food was delicious. However, my Old Fashioned cocktail was less than stellar. I return to this restaurant every time I’m in the city and the food is always consistently good.

If you are looking for a casual yet upscale bistro orientation with a diverse menu i.e. from French classics to Sushi and good cocktails, Rue 57 would be an excellent choice. In the heart of Midtown easy to access. In warmer months outdoor dining along 57th offers excellent people-watching. Both a neighborhood gem as well as destination orientation.

While the hostess seated us promptly and the water glasses were filled immediately, the server was not that attentive. Coffee refills was an episode in tracking her down each time we desired fresh coffee.

We also noticed a quality and quantity difference from an identical food order 2 weeks prior. Mildly disappointed in the difference although without the previous experience as a reference, we would have been satisfied.

The food was good, as usual. Our waiter was extremely busy, (that happens often - perhaps they don't have enough help on Friday evenings). He hovered until we asked for a few minutes, then disappeared. He was somewhat curt, but nothing to really complain about until we asked for the check. I had just realized the time and had a bus to catch so we asked him to hurry with it. In doing so, he made a mistake which we caught (and understood). It was after that that he was somewhat rude. I told him so and he argued with me that he wasn't. I told him he was being rude just arguing with me about it. Anyway, we left him a smaller tip than we would have, to which he let us know he wasn't happy. (My friend didn't want to leave him a tip at all!) He said, in an accusatory manor, that we were sitting there for three hours. I'm not exactly sure how long we did sit there, but wouldn't dispute that. Most waiters, if they feel you're sitting too long, bring the check. We had to ask for it, so why would we think he had a problem with it? My friend was in from London and he certainly put a damper on our evening.

Rue 57 provided excellent service all around. We enjoyed the French toast, blueberry pancakes, and country eggs. Even more, we appreciated that the wait staff provided just the right amount of attention - not too much and not too little.

Enjoyed a pleasant pre-concert dinner. Started with a spicy tuna roll. Since I am the only one who eats sushi, it is nice to find a restaurant with good sushi and other food to please the rest. For entrees, we had the meatloaf and the sole. Both were excellently prepared. I particularly enjoy the meatloaf - this is the only place I order it! Restaurant is convenient to Carnegie Hall and City Center. Always a pleasure to dine here.

A perfect Sunday began with brunch at Rue 57 and each dish ordered was greatly enjoyed. Our gracious hostess seated us at our favorite table and though the restaurant was busy we were never rushed. Our server was attentive, answered any question we asked and made it a very good start to the day.

Went for my wife's 57 birthday (get it?) We thought everything went pretty much flawlessly, we were given a choice of two tables and were seated right away even though we were 15 minutes early, we ordered the chicken parmesan special and the skirt steak frites. Food arrived fast and was delicious, giant chicken parmesan half of which had to be taken home, James Stanhope, the guy who looked after us was prompt, knowledgeable and courteous in spite of his young years. Overall a very pleasant dining experience, recommended without hesitation, and I'm in the service business myself.

Special occasion to have dinner with our daughter who was in town. We were able to get a booth that was very comfortable and ambience was excellent as well as service I have been there twice, and not been disappointed. Rue 57 is also close to our hotel we stay at when coming to Manhattan.

We found Rue 57 searching for a restaurant for a meal before attending a Carnegie Hall concert. This was our first experience with Rue 57 and we fully enjoyed it. We were given a great table in one corner of the dining room, with a terrific view on all that was going on. We took in the friendly, active atmosphere and found that the noise level gave us a sense of presence but was at a very comfortable level. My Manhattan was well-made and full-strength. We started with a Caesar salad and selected the two specials that night, the scallops and the seared tuna, as our entrees. Both were excellent. Our only less enthusiastic comment would be that the attentiveness of the service was not up to both the quality of the venue and the quality and price of the meal. However, this will not deter us from returning, as overall we enjoyed a positive dining experience.
