This restaurant was a find. It is close to the big convention hotels (e.g., NY Hilton midtown), and in walking distance to the south-facing park hotels. The menu is French brasserie style with amazing pommes frites as well as a selection of sushi items. (I know--unusual combination, but it works). The portions are surprisingly large, and the service is fast once you get seated. You really must have reservations to eat here. Nice ambiance with a buzz. Tables are close but not as close as many in NYC. I had some of the best mussels and pommes frites I've ever had, and the omelettes are wonderful, too. Nuanced salad dressings--light and bright--on the very wide selection of salads.

So sad: one of our mainstays can't be any more...
Our server was horrendous. Our champagne didn't even make it to the table till after the first course was eaten - in spite of two requests and in spite of it being Veuve Cliquot, not prosecco...
Our steak au louvre with truffle frites had to be sent back: saignant came bleu, the fries were oily and soggy and smelled of stale oil (NO, it wasn't the truffle oil dear!) Time to refresh the oil in the fryer... Sent those back to the kitchen - no need to replace. Had a glass of Malbec instead which was cloyingly sweet - really?! By dessert, we were 'done'. What happened?! So sad...

We were seated immediately and our server was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We appreciated the variety of menu offerings, and the food was delicious (highly recommend the pasta primavera). Portions could be smaller. Fairly high noise level and tables close together, but we were able to carry on a conversation.

We've been to Rue several times and this was the first time I would say the food was not very good and it is very pricey for what it is.

Charming dining room which at this time of year was decorated with beautiful large vases of cherry blossoms. Very good food served courteously and efficiently. Warm mushroom salad was delicious. I enjoyed the steak tartare while my husband, the traditional hangar steak with pomme frites. A very delightful evening with a very Parisienne feel to it. But if tastes prevail there is are excellent looking Asian dishes.

Went for a business lunch. Service was friendly and very efficient, and the food was solid, particularly the cobb salad. Would recommend if you're in this part of town, which has few good dining options.

We received a nice table by the window and good service. The wait staff was attentive, but almost overly so as we planned to enjoy a slower meal. Food came out quickly and was tasty.

Rue 57 is consistently pretty good. A good choice in that neighborhood that is speedy for pre-Carnegie Hall or other midtown west activities.

Just like Pershing Square is for the same need near Grand Central, and Trattoria Del Arte is a few blocks a way... New York's answer to fast casual dining.

The food was fine-to-good, the service was great (fast, attentive).

It's just starting to look a little tired. It feels shabby.

But it was just fine for what we needed, and we return regularly for that reason.

Easter brunch.

Easter Brunch. ALL tourists at 10:30 AM. We live here. Called to delay reservation 10 min. and was put on hold for over 5 min. then host said hold again. Showed up late but NP. Seating and table were fast and nice. Nothing special except the waiter brought us each a cold croissant, pecan or chocolate "for Easter" from the restaurant long after we were served coffee and right when they were brining our meals. Nice but poor timing. I had the almost eggs benedict or what ever they called it. It was 2 poached eggs over hard croissant divided in half with very thin wide slices of Canadian Bacon covering each one. Bizarre and tasted separate. I'm not even sure if there was any béarnaise sauce on it. My sister had batter soggy French toast which the waiter recommended. My partner had a very bland Belgium waffle with strawberry goo. I love having business lunches at Rue 57 but for Brunch never again. Once more or else...

Went with my mom and her friend who both used to work/live in NYC many moons ago. We all enjoyed our food... Steak Tartare, Warm Mushroom Salade, Beet Salade, Scallop special, Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass (delicious) and the Creme Brulee (they said it was some of the best they have ever had) and the service was excellent. The ladies enjoyed the classic NYC vibe of the restaurant and it was within walking distance to the hotel.
