Rue 57 Ratings and Reviews
Rue 57 was recommended by a friend whose tastes fall well in line with mine. We made a reservation about 30 days in advance. When 2 of our party had to cancel we called and altered our reservation. We were seated in an acceptable amount of time but it took an inordinate amount of time for a waitress to ask us if we wanted a drink. When we ordered a glass of wine we were asked if we wanted a taste of another she highly recommended. We agreed to the taste and before we could finish it the glasses were whisked away when we declined ordering that as it was double the price. . A vegan in our party asked if they could make a plate of some of their side order items but the waitress would only take an order of 3 full side dishes st a cost more than most of the meat/fish dishes and a tremendous waste of food. No bread was brought to the table until we asked and then just 4 pieces for 5 people. One of the meals was not brought to the table with the others and we learned it hadn’t been ordered by the waitress. Another wait. After dinner plates had been cleared the waitress kept walking back and forth in front of our table as if she was wanting us to leave. Then the only time she was quick to attend to us was when she saw that we had put cash into the billfold. As she reached for it she said “you don’t want change do you?” There are so many wonderful restaurants in this area of New York City and based upon our experience this past week at Rue 57 we will be dining at those restaurants from now on. Too bad. The food was very good.
We met early to eat before a concert at Carnegie Hall. The service was good, but it became difficult at times to find and catch our waiter to ask for something. The food was very good overall, although I thought my duck a'l'orange was a bit dry, unexpected for such a signature dish here. The chef rolls were delicious as well the steak frittes. The chicken noodle soup was rather salty. Perhaps New York really likes salty soups.
The Service was horrible!we were continuously trying to look for our waiter!The hostess was magnificent she sat us in a nice table and was very polite and professional!We order the country omelets since it was 9 am,they were tasteless not
Salt or flavor,waiter never came to check on us we needed ketchap and got it almost to the end!we over stay and decided it to order a bottle of wine!64$ one But if we wanted stay longer we needed to move table and couldn’t stay there!
So we understood and moved to a table by the door with all the people coming in and out we were freezing !waiter almost never show up to poor wine or anything!terrible experience
The place is always packed by half tourists half locals. I like it because of atmosphere-busy and energetic. The food is ok, not great. They do have good hamburgers and Ruben but the portions are huge so I typically stay way from it. This time I had a Cobb which was prepared in advance and likely well in advance. Was not good at all. Overall -I recommend it and will be back.
We were first seated us by the doors while it was 20 degrees outside. We asked to move and service took a while and I watched several tables around us get frustrated because they weren't being waited on. The food was mediocre at best. Steak wasn't seasoned and overcooked. Overall not a great experience and with so many other wonderful places in New York, we won't go back.
Big but cozy place, good food, great service, but I was hopping they would keep Christmas decorations a bit longer though. We visited it on December 3rd with my friends who came from overseas and I was disappointed not being welcomed with seasonal Christmas decorations, I took them to this place specifically knowing they had them up a week ago. They keep the tree on Rockefeller center until 6th or 7th, I expect businesses in the area at least match that schedule. Oh well, things are not always the way you want them to be. Other issue I had during my visit, the duck meal I enjoyed a week ago wasn’t good, the meat tasted like it was sitting in a freezer for a long time and had an aftertaste. I don’t usually complain about my food, but this time it was something I recommended to my mother, and she didn’t enjoy her meal, after trying it myself I can confirm, it was not good, eatable but not restaurant quality. Overall we enjoyed our dinner, service was great, ambiance was right, food was good(except the duck 😬).
I don’t usually write reviews but in this case I felt I had too. From the minute we entered the restaurant I knew we had made a mistake. The management were extremely rude and if it hadn’t been the fact that it was news years eve and my husbands birthday we would have left immediately. We have booked this from England for this special occasion. The food was very average and expensive. I would definitely give this restaurant a miss as there are lots of better places in the area. Definitely a tourist trap don’t go.
Was recommended by hotel concierge. This is a great place for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Staff was very friendly even as busy as it was. The food was presented well and tasted better.
Don’t miss an opportunity to try this place whether your a NYC regular or a visitor.
We enjoyed a dinner during a visit to New York. Very friendly service, and lovely bistro ambience. The food was mixed in success. My husband's bolognese was rather ordinary as was his first course of a California roll. My meal was more successful - first course of crispy artichoke hearts and Kobe beef sliders. Our waiter was charming and made a number of pleasantries about our being Philadelphian. We had a very nice evening.
I now call it RUDE 57...never have I been so badly mistreated by a greeter, the latino man at the front desk! We came an hour earlier than my reservation , when it was at a lull and was told that we had to finish within an hour...He then preceded to let the girl seating us to take a phone call....at that infraction, I said that our hour does not start to we are seated...He then deliberately sent us away from an empty table by the windows to the back of the restaurant, next to the waiters station, where two waiters were slinging silverware into the drawers! I was totally embarrassed and if it was not so cold outside we would have left...the guy at the podium needs some lessons in proper manners or to be fired!
We were disappointed by the service and quality of the meal.
Our first waiter gave the hostess a hard time when we sat down so she came back to move us, but we liked our table.
We sent the mussels back as they tasted very off.
We have been going to Rue 57 for many years, but will be going elsewhere in the future.
