Waiter messed up our simple order and ignored us after taking our order. Had to flag down bus boy to get more coffee and another waitress to get check. Toilet was also clogged up. Food was ok, nothing special.
Normal NYC prices. Great food with good flavors. I had the potato crusted salmon which was cooked perfectly. Staff was friendly and attentive. Not too noisy in the restaurant, good decor.
Wet nhce place food was great as were the drinks. Sat by the street window, great people watching.
We visited after a Sunday matinee with our two teenage girls. Everyone was able to find something that suited their palette, and the service was fast but not rushed. We'd definitely return on another visit to NYC.
Great Service. Great soup!
All good. Best omelets I've eaten in NYC. Tasty food and a wonderful environment.
Never a disappointment. True brasserie experience, able to order something slightly off menu. Quick turnaround between ordering and when the meals arrive.
Had to wait even though we had reservations and the restaurant wasn't full when we arrived. Felt rushed a little by the staff, and the waiter took my plate before I was finished. The food was delicious, though. I would go back again sometime- hopefully without the same issues.
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.
Good quality food in a nice-not-to-noisy enviroment. Average service and very expensive in relative terms, specially beverages.
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.
I like this restaurant a lot. The only concern/comment is that the tables are close and difficult sitting and getting up.
Great food, amazing amazing dessert but should I have to beg for water... twice ? We felt forgotten. Thankfully our experience was atypical for Rue; one of our favorite spots.
This restaurant has fantastic service.
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.
Friendly staff and reliably good food. Good location.
The perfect place to go on the way to Carnegie Hall. The brunch options were great. I had been here for dinner but brunch was just as good. We're coming back Friday night!
Went here for Saturday morning breakfast/brunch. We were taken to our table right away, food was delicious and we felt like we were in a french brasserie.
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.
The Coq au Vin was perfect and the service was excellent. The wine is pricey.
Very fun authentic French bustling bistro - perfect for lively lunch
Another great meal at Rue 57!
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.
nice variety and the mini Kobe burgers were delicious. So were the fried artichokes.
Reliable, slightly above a coffee shop but dependable in a difficult neighborhood for a casual bite. Pricey for what it is.
The total package. Excellent food, service, and ambiance. Part neighborhood restaurant filled with regulars and part hidden gem. If you go once, you’ll definitely go back.
The bar it’s a great space for drinks and appetizers. Nice crowd too
