Rue 57 Ratings and Reviews
At first we were seated at a table near the bar that was much too loud for pleasant conversation. After some gentle insistence we were given a much nicer table in a corner where we could hear each other without shouting. Once we settled into our new table, we enjoyed the service, food, and surroundings. I was surprised to find tasty sushi on the menu along with tempting continental cuisine. Overall a very nice dining experience.
We were looking for a nice place for a late breakfast and Rue 57 came recommended by the concierge at our hotel.
The place is charming, and the wait staff were attentive. However, the food seemed quite bland and although presented well enough, did not strike us as memorable. We mostly had omelettes in our group for our breakfast.
The food was fine -- not great, but fine. However, the prices charged are really out of whack for the cuisine. Furthermore, it is a raucus place filled with tourists. If not for the cold and the convenience on this particular evening, we would not have ended up at Rue 57.
This is the second time I've dined here. It does not disappoint. Some menu items seem to be priced too high, but we stuck with the reasonably priced burgers (plus one shared vegetable side dish,) and all was delicious. (We were especially pleased to receive a basket of the restaurant's excellent bread, since our entrées included hamburger buns. Not sure whether this happened because we ordered the vegetable, or would have been included with only the burgers in our order.)
We came before a concert at Carnegie Hall. We knew the restaurant wee, so nothing was a surprise. The ambience is great. As we had a friend from Paris with us, we wanted to see how he would react. He loved it. For him it was stepping back in time to an earlier Paris ambience. The food was good and the service excellent, but not intrusive. All in all, a perfect place for a pre-Carnegie Hall dinner.
Our brunch experience was not especially pleasurable. The restaurant was extremely busy and noisy. Two of us ordered omelets, which came very quickly, and seemed to have been pre-prepared and sitting out. Toast was barely warm. We got the feeling they were trying to move people in and out very quickly.
We had an 8PM concert at Carnegie Hall and wanted a nearby place that would make this possible and also would allow us to eat no earlier than 6:30 (so not a long dinner). Rue 57 served this purpose admirably. My wife and I each had two appetizers and were reasonably happy. Quite decent bistro food. Being in midtown a bit expensive for what you got, but not crazily so. So a good place for what we wanted. I would not head up there unless I had a concert or another reason to go.
My husband and I stopped here for lunch and liked it so much we went for dinner the following evening. Our waiter, Steven, was fabulous. He had a sense of humor and was very knowledgeable. Our sushi was delicious. Hubby had a steak that was delicious and my Chilean sea bass was the best I have ever had. Definitely will eat here again when in NYC!
Great ambience, great food and helpful waiters. Very nice Chablis. More American than French, but excellent fare. If you're staying in a Midtown hotel as we were, Rue 57 is ideal. We ended up eating here 3 times during the week we were staying as the atmosphere is smart but far more relaxed than some better known names.
