Very loud, service could be better! drinks were empty for way too long. Seems like a neighborhood bar/restaurant everyone seemed to know each other hoping from table to table

We were a party of 5 and we waited over an hour for our food. The food was delicious but not worth the hour wait... I was very disappointed after the great reviews and will not be returning. Also- my chair was broken and was falling apart and the ambiance of the restaurant was not good. It was very run down and gross. Hate to say it- but open table failed me.

Ate in the tent. Food better than I remembered. Inside was pretty packed despite restrictions. Service was fine except our margaritas seemed took a long time ..both rounds. I guess the bar was super busy.

Tuna tartare wasn't good, didn't feel safe finishing. The atmosphere was bad, doing dishes right behind us. Service was slow and didn't give us a warm welcome when walking in. The server did a poor job guiding us through the menu.

The most talented chef on the Upper East Side! The tuna tartare is the best I've been able to find anywhere in the city - the quail eggs add an extrataste point. I'm also very fond of the duck and the salads -- combinations of greens, cheeses, nuts are wonderful -- and nutritionally terrific.

The food was absolutely amazing. The tent was lacking..,we were seated right near an opening so we were pretty cold. All of the servers were really nice, however, we ordered cocktails before we even ordered our food and they didn’t come out until after two plates had already been delivered and eaten. That was disappointing because we like to enjoy them while perusing the menu. Also, my husband’s wine pour seemed very small.

Had a very nice brunch this past weekend. They could have used an additional wait staff as that was the only down side to the experience. We had the steak and eggs and French toast which were both delicious.

We have supported Soujourn for many years due to the consistently delicious food and good service. However this time, it was not a pleasant experience at all as unmasked people from the staff were around serving wine and interacting with patrons. That behavior encouraged other patrons to walk around unmask as well. We and other tables around rushed to pay to leave the place.
So all of this comes to personal risk tolerance and decisions but please do not announce the restaurant as “mask required ” if you are not going to comply with it.

Charcuterie board is really good at this place. That cheese was delicious 🤤
We had to wait a little to be sitting even though we had a reservation but it was pretty quick.
