We're big fans of the Colicchio restaurants and this was our first time at Temple Court. We went in for Sunday brunch. The atmosphere is stunning. The music was wonderful! The food was delicious - donut holes, avocado toast, breakfast sandwich, and omelette. All were perfectly prepared & the right temperature. The service, however, was lacking, which is so unusual for Crafted Hospitality. Our waiter never wrote down my tea order (I physically saw that he did not write it down) and never brought it. When I asked for my tea, he clearly forgot that I had ordered it. How did he not notice that I didn't have a beverage throughout the first course? Then when he brought the tea, he didn't bring the milk & honey, which I specifically asked for twice. I'm sorry. It's tea at brunch. How hard is that to get right? The second course arrived without silverware and the waiter never checked on us while we were dining. He also never asked if my date wanted another cocktail. The empty glass sat on the table for over an hour. There was a gentleman in a suit (manager?) who did check on us frequently (brought the silverware, brought my milk and honey), so clearly he was aware of our waiter's lacking skill set. It was just so so unusual for a Colicchio restaurant!

The restaurant was furnished lovely, the dishes, scallops for her and salmon for me, were well prepared and presented.

Every thing was wonderful with the exception of the server. He seemed impatient and had an attitude. When we asked him questions about items on the menu, he responded in a way that seemed like he was bothered over our questions.

Temple Court and its neighbor, the Bar with the marvelous atrium, are amazing. Great decor and history. Service was excellent. We had the Restaurant Week lunch menu which offered 6 appetizers and, I believe, 7 entrees rather than the standard 3/3 + one could add a dessert for only an additional $3. My friend had gnudi and mushroom tarte. I had mussels and duck cassoulet. All were delicious. Had hot rolls to start and 2 large slices of garlic bread that came with the mussels. We added the dessert, each having the Millefeuille-just delicious. My friend was celebrating her birthday and a candle was put on her dessert plate. We were seated in a comfortable corner booth. Noise level moderate. Just had an outstanding time for a wonderful bargain. Thanks.

Omg ! That was the best dinner experience ever. Our waiter Jamal was sweet and amazing. My best friend had special requests and he was so patient and funny about it. The manager came over twice to make sure we had a good time. And we did. We had a great time. The food was so good, incredible portions for the foie gras appetizer. The meat was perfectly done and dessert, so delicious.
5 stars, hands down. But the captain / waiter, Jamal was the best :)

Went for Restaurant Week and it was great value. The whole menu is available and everything was creative and excellent. Had the cavitelli, chicken fricassee, and millefeuille all of which were outstanding. Nice wine list. Great service and nice room with noise level I would consider loud but still could have a conversation. Definitely worth a return visit.

Cavatelli was too salty. My friend enjoyed her foie gras. Duck in duck confit was tender but also too salty. Entree was brought out too soon, as not everyone was done eating their appetizer yet. They were training new waitstaff, so perhaps it'll be better once the staff is fully trained. Baked Alaska was delicious!

Restaurant Week Lunch-we were 20 minutes early and ordered a drink at the bar. The bar room in the atrium has great atmosphere. We ordered Hendricks gin & tonics- they were well made if a bit pricey @ $17 each. Starters of nudi with brussel sprouts, apple, sage & brown butter were the standout winner. Cavatelli with pesto was OK but not memorable. Wild Salmon was too well done for my taste. Cassoulet-confit duck leg was smokey but there was no sausage on the plate. Dessert for a $3. upcharge was a good value- the profiterole was more cookie than creme puff. We would definitely return for the NUDI!!!!! Service was smooth & professional.

Overall — good. Only a couple of things : one of my friend ordered a glass of white wine. She checked bottle, it was open, but for one glass it is ok, she try....only instead of wine, it was just WATER!! Nobody apologize about it, only our waitress was confused and sorry..
We ordered skat fish. Too salty, for everyone ( for 4 people).
What was good? Friendly reception, nice building, appetizer and desert. I come back to Tample Court only next time l will order scallops.

We went for restaurant week. The food was absolutely spectacular. The only reason why I didn’t give the restaurant five stars across-the-board is because of the hostess whose name is Yoly. She should not work in the service industry! Very snippy and rude.

It was a bit noisy but ok for Restaurant week. Not exactly good for a nice quiet dinner out.
One of the 2 men next to us was burping loud the time after dinner, which made it common and ordinary.
The waitress was polite but in a rushed forced kind of way, I also did not exactly appreciate her attire, all those Tattoos and messy hair and earrings. The otherwise elegant surroundings and Parisian flair were very much diminished.

Just shared the most perfect (Birthday) dining experience ever with my sister Terri at Tom Colicchio's Temple Court in the historic Beekman Hotel in Manhattan's FiDi!  Wow! 


Everything about the dinner was perfect... setting, food, wine and spectacularly, to the employee, exceptional, personal, enlightened, and even empathetic service!  Between my sister and I, each of us with some incredibly different life/dining experiences and expectations, and carrying along daily life's emotional baggage, we agreed that we had just experienced perfection, where we were pampered, amused,  meticulously cared for, and professionally served an exceptionally delicious and beautifully presented sumptuous repast.  AND, it was using the menu from and during NYC Restaurant Week!!!  


I'm telling you, from our call to the Reservationist yesterday afternoon confirming certain items were actually being included on the day's menu, to Darren's inspired, understanding and engaging (beverage) service, through the friendly, informed, yet impeccable table service by Becky, Salvatore et al., they each were personable and provided absolutely superior interactions.


The Temple Court team took an  "Open Table" internet reservation "extra note" indicating it was Terri's birthday and proceeded to print a personalized menu, give us the best seat in the restaurant, free welcome bubbly,  consideration on the wine, and a perfectly timed 3 hour meal!  We were convinced we were Tom's most important friends.


I'm going to stop, lest my credibility suffers from too much praise.  But, I will be going back!

Appetizer of gnudi was attractive but, in spite of brown butter and fried sage leaves, fairly tasteless. Lots of pepper and salt helped quite a bit. Ordered "cassoulet" for main course -- basically beans and confit of duck leg -- no sausage, no other meats. Skin on duck was grey and only slightly crisp on one side. Because it had not been crisped, the fat under the skin had not been rendered and the skin was inedible. I sent it back, waited 5-6 minutes, and got it back in the identical condition. Even the waiter mentioned that it looked identical. Bad marks to the waiter for even bringing it to me, and worse marks to the kitchen for sending it out like that in the first place, and for not crisping it second time around. This is my third -- and last -- time eating here. Each time has been a disappointment on at least one of the dishes. Place is comfy. service pleasant, but the most important thing -- the food -- is no better than "meh".

Overall my friends and I were very disappointed. If the place is gorgeous , great désigne and ambiance, the restaurant expertisas really à disaster. First the hostess made a joke about my first and last names (nothing special about them besides the fact that they are French )! We found that hugely inappropriate. Then our waitress was terrible and could I care lesssabout us. We had to ask and ask and ask for everything : bread water drinks . And the food was cold went it arrived .

This review pertains to only Restaurant Week. Restaurant week in restaurant week menus in New York help over the last few years failed abysmally. Not Temple Court! In my opinion this is the only restaurant worth going to Resturant Week. Natalie food with their execution turning the whole restaurant into one menu and executing it perfectly is the way to go.

Book this restaurant!

I entered from Beekman Hotel entrance - be sure to look up the skyline is spectacular. There are fresh flowers in sitting area - walking past the concierge lead to Temple Court vibrant sexy bar area. I can mingle here or walk toward the entrance of the restaurant to the reception area to announce my arrival. I am early for my 7pm dinner reservation and was immediately greeted and acknowledged of my special occasion and asked if I like to be seated at my table to wait for rest of party. My server was attentive and competent- they gave me a customized menu to acknowledge my birthday (nice touch ) especially since it was restaurant week. The food was fresh and fabulous- burrata, short rib truffle soup, scallops, flank steak, lamb, chicken and oh my Baked Alaska with a candle. And oh yes the wine list is great ... can’t wait to go again

Bro. The crispy side of the skate is too salty. You know. Way too salty. I haven't experienced that much amount of salt since last night video games. It hurts the soft skin in my mouth. I literally ripped off part of the water bubble in my mouth. That bubble was caused by too much salt. I knew it cuz it wasn't there 10 minutes ago.
Waited 30 minutes for the main course. I think they were having a large volume of customers. The quality control became an unexpected issue.

Everything else is good. Nice service. The fish is fresh at least.
