Tocqueville was outstanding. Everyone is our group thought each course was exceptional. The service was very good and not intrusive. The room is beautiful and every table has a great deal of space. What a New York treasure- so civilized.

Celebrated post-Valentine's Dinner and wife's birthday, and it was a phenomenal experience & cuisine. Ordered off the a la carte menu with some customization. Our splendid waiter was quite helpful with specifics & wine pairings by the glass. Some not even on the menu. Our table for two was recessed and so romantic. Service was impeccable. The discreet remembrance of my wife’s birthday was quite nice with a custom dessert to accompany the one we ordered.
Everything we had - we loved. Truly amazing was the artic char tartare, Followed by Sea Urchin pasta and duck. We were not be disappointed with anything on the menu and could not ask for better service.

We celebrated Valentine's Day a day late and were not disappointed by the food or the service. The service was attentive with out being overbearing and very warm. We both ordered the Wagyu Steak dish and were blown away by the tender meat and its succulent juices. We also had wine pairing with the help of the knowledgeable and courteous Somm. We will definitely be coming back again to experience more of the expertly chosen wine list. Dessert was perfectly portioned and capped off the meal wonderfully. We finished our meal with a lovely Hennessey Paradis.

Booked a month in advance and were seated upstairs in the hall by the bathrooms. Guess we just don't deserve the main dining room. Service was slow and food was completely average. Yes it was Valentine's Day. They were packing us in and doubling the prices. The meal was worth about a third of what we paid. Should have known better.

I began my evening at Tocqueville greeted with smiles and warmth. The service was impeccable and the food was truly lovely. I had the very rich and creamy Uni Carbarnara, which was delicious but not for anyone on a diet. I later had the Trout dish, which was both visually and palette pleasing as well as totally creative. For dessert my guest and I shared an assortment of house made ice-creams and sorbets. The overall ambiance of the restuarant was classy and still cozy and comfortable. The staff was very informative and friendly. Cannot wait to come back again to try the duck dish.

A definite must try. We opted for the 7 course tasting menu which turned out to be more like 11 courses. First came a few bite size courses from off the menu and each was delicious. Then we had our 7 courses and the portions were appropriately sized and each dish excelled in taste and presentation. It was nice that we also had some flexibility in what we chose from the menu. A variety of sweets to follow the dessert course rounded out the 11th course.

Cocktails were good. We didn't do the wine pairing.

Service was excellent.

Tocqueville is excellent in every way. From the perfect oysters trough the blue cheese course, food, service and ambience are world class. The wine list is excellent as well.
