Saxon + Parole
Book your next event with us
I've only been to Saxon + Parole a handful of times, but every visit has been memorable. Our last visit was for the tasting menu, and it was a joy to share. We also thought highly of the cocktails.
What a great meal. They really know how to cook a fabulous steak, and the service is perfect.
Amazing food as usual. Every better service. Only complaint is they always make you wait at the bar for 5min.
Just okay food. Not out of this world. The Caesar salad didn’t have much flavor. The cocktails were delicious. The burger was fine
Great restaurant - great menu - artfully done. Our waiter recommended a wonderful pinot to go with our meal. The cheesecake sunday was good but not great. They had a terrifically creative razor clam egg salad which was delicious but could have been a larger portion. Otherwise everything was beautifully done.
Be sure that you get a well located table, or the ambient effect will be dreadful. We were squashed against a barrier behind which staff banged and crashed silverware and plates, and our seats were crammed tight. It was awful seating -- and the restaurant was mostly empty, they could have placed us comfortably. But we got screwed.
The Impossible Burger was perfectly prepared and delicious. Good wine but GULP $20/glass!
Overall, Saxon & Parole is a lovely place for dinner.
The atmosphere is pleasant although may be a little dark and noisy for some.
The food and wine menus had enough options to suit but be warned of certain portion sizes.
I ordered the seafood in bisque which was a reasonable portion with plenty seafood including scallops. My sister ordered the pork main and was astounded at the size of the portion which include a full pork chop and ribs. Although delicious, we did worry a little about the food waste.
We went for brunch as a party of 6. The hostess and bartender were very nice.. kind and accommodating as our group slowly trickled in. The Bloody Mary’s were very good. The food in general was okay although the burger I ordered and it’s fried egg were both over cooked. The issue was that our server was rude and unpleasant. Aside from her our experience was decent.
Delicious food as always
The mushroom terrine to share is spectacular as are the duck and scallops entrees. Highly recommend.
We had our wedding reception there last year, went back for our one year anniversary. The staff could not have been more wonderful in making our special occasion even more special.
Our party of 6 was seated on time at 7pm and for 25 min, no one came to the table to ask for a drink order or tell us about the menu. I finally got up and made a fuss and someone who did not appear to be a server came to the table to take our order. We placed our order at 7:35pm and not a morsel of food appeared until 8:25pm. The appetizers and entrees landed on the table at the same time. My Bavette steak was cold. Not even lukewarm. I was so fed up at this point, I didn't even complain. I just wanted to finish the meal and leave. My friend recommended this place and raved about it but I couldn't have had a worse experience.
I love Saxon & Parole which is in the sweet part of the city. Awesome staff, service and food. One of my favourite spots.
Hi Tim, So glad you enjoyed your experience at Saxon! We can't wait to have you back again and hope you'll check out our weekend brunch as well.
We had a great time! We will be back
Excellent selection; extremely knowledgeable server (Jocelyn Wright). We had a delightful time!
Hi Laurie, Glad to hear you had a wonderful meal! Be sure to check out our American Izakaya, The Poni Room, which is located under Saxon + Parole. Jocelyn also works there some nights so you just might have her as your server again.
There isn’t a lot to be positive about this place. The tables are cramped, the food is bad and the service is lacklustre.
Our first time and definetly not our last time there. saxon&Parole has everything to become a favourite place to go and have a great dinner experience
One of our favorites for date night - solid Mocktail menu for those who don’t drink. The Garden Charcuterie is a complex array of unique flavors, highly recommended for those staying away from meat. Will be back again
Glad you enjoyed our zero-proof cocktails and Garden Charcuterie. Next time you stop by, consider trying our Ahimi Tartare...it has all the taste and texture of raw tuna but is completely plant-based!
Wonderful reservation, the table and service was excellent. Well worth booking in advance, thank you! We look forward to coming again.
Not as great as the first time. Waited 20 minutes and never received a drink refill. And the staff seemed put-out when we asked for our check and canceled the drink order.
Hi Tim, We're so sorry you had a less-than-great experience at Saxon + Parole. Your feedback has been passed on to the team and we do hope you'll give us another chance!
I love this place. Excellent food and service!
Always impeccable food, service and atmosphere!
Great place for brunch
the outdoor "cafe" is what draws me to this place. combining awesome creative eats, equally awesome libations and an outstanding "perch" to watch the world goes by is exactly what al fresco dining is all about!
I loved everything, got there early, had a cocktail at the bar, then a great dinner when my friend arrived. All was perfect except the music in the dining room was muffled and like listening to a static set of distant headphones. The music was great in the nearby bar, so it just must be a sound issue. Otherwise fantastic!!! I recommended the restaurant already to friends visiting this weekend.
The meal was great. Our server was very knowledgeable and very attentive!
A very nice eatery in a classic style environment. Good food & wine well cooked & served. A go back to next time we're in NYC.
4 perfect burgers and fries with cold beer. What more can you ask for? Also split the Impossible Burger amongst us and we loved it. Surprised at the look and taste of the beautiful “burger”. Thank you team for a perfect evening. Never disappoints.
The food was excellent!! High quality and reasonably priced. A very casual setting which we like very much. We ate outside and there were no tables for four but pushed together two small round tables. Not the most comfortable seating, but, better than inside which was quite dark.
The lack of ambiance was more than outweighed by the excellent food and service.!!
Food is amazing. Staff are lovely but a bit inattentive. Very clean and comfortable. Great ambiance. If looking for quiet conversation during brunch avoid the hour plus when the marching band is performing. Very entertaining but loud.
Becky outside was great. No complaints. Perfect weather didn’t hurt
The tasting menu absolutely incredible! So much food we had enough to take home for another full meal, and everything cooked perfectly. Staff was attentive and knowledgeable.
Incredible experience! Food and service were both outstanding!
I enjoyed my brunch and can highly recommend the Lady Edison country ham. I request my poached eggs hard, and they perfectly prepared. My table also got the French fries with chili ketchup and blue cheese aioli and wow!! I didn't have a Bloody Mary, but the DIY bloody station was Instagram worthy. My only complaint is that the server never came back to check on us after our food was delivered and the music was very loud. I had requested it be turned down, but that ever happened. Overall a delicious brunch and I do plan to return!
Too loud, uncomfortable seating, great cocktails, mediocre food
Past it’s prime and on the slippery slope to mediocrity. Disorganized hostess with an attitude. Williamsburg wannabe bartenders with man buns. Lots of well meaning but inattentive wait staff bouncing like pin balls. The most average menu. Dry, bland chicken. Tasteless tuna tartar. Brussel sprouts you have had at a dozen better restaurants. Go for bar scene with above average looking customers. But don’t waste your money eating here.
The food is amazing, but in this case the waiter made the experience exceptional. Bravo!
Der grillierte Tintenfisch als Vorspeise war sehr lecker. Der Hamburger durchschnittlich und das Wagyu Beef unterdurchschnittlich, d.h. nichts Spezielles und ganz sicher nicht USD 54.00 wert!
Weinkarte ein (schlechter) Witz, die paar wenigen Weine überteuert.
Fazit: Dinner für zwei für USD 390.00=überrissen!
Saxon & Parole was such a treat. Had an early morning brunch and our group ordered both breakfast and lunch items. I will say that the fried chicken sandwich was out of this world! Will go back for just that dish! Derver was fabulous. The Bloody Mary was incredible! We also ordered the shishito peppers. So yummy!
