What a delightful evening we had at Vaucluse. Our waitress had been there since the day the restaurant opened over 3 years ago and knew everything about every dish on the menu - always a great help on your first visit. The atmosphere was sophisticated casual - with a 4 piece jazz ensemble playing wonderfully in the background on our Friday evening date. Couples, groups of friends and young families all made for a comfortable environment with ZERO pretense and the most delicious food and drinks. Finally, for midtown NYC, the noise was so thoughtfully controlled that all I heard was my husband and the jazz group. Pure magic!

Had been there in past when first opened and thought was excellent. This time was a bit of a letdown. We were seated promptly. The service we thought was very slow. The appetizers were good but main course was average. My wife’s meal was barely warm when served and they brought the wrong side dishes. The dessert menu never came after the main course, and when we asked for the bill the waitress never asked us if we wanted dessert.
Overall a poor experience. I rated a 3 stars because I liked it the first time.

Once again, we had an excellent meal at Vaucluse. The food is excellent and the service is superb. One of the few remaining restaurants in NY where people still dress for dinner and act like ladies and gentlemen. We make it a point of dining here every time we visit NY. It is an excellent restaurant; the food, the service, the room, and the ambiance all get a 10+ rating!

We were off to a rocky start. Service was rushed until the room began to fill. We requested the volumn of the music to be lowered 2 times before it was adjusted. My husband asked for a napkin twice before it was delivered. Pasta coarse was tuff. After the appetizer, service and food Improved.

One of our favorite restaurants. A bit pricy at $49 for two courses for lunch, and as we passed on desert, they should have deducted something. However, the food here Is excellent. the chestnut soup was unbelievable, and the duck confit always outstanding. Service great, wait people professional and helpful.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Vaucluse. We had a 6:30 reservation, and the service was good for the first 1/2 hr., but it fell off quickly as the tables filled up. Then, about half way through our meal, we were COMPLETELY abandoned by our waiter, who opted, instead, to hover around a table of 6, who were ordering expensive bottles of wine. It literally took 30 minutes after we finished our entree to receive our dessert, and another 30 minutes to get and pay our check. It is too bad, because it is just down the street from where we live, and we really wanted to like this restaurant.

Vaucluse has a new pre-fixe menu for lunch: three courses for either $39 or $49 and only three of the specific food dishes required very reasonable supplements. As with all of Vaucluse's dishes, the food was excellent -- delicious tasting and beautifully presented. Regardless of eating anywhere else, it doesn't get much better than this.

Our forth and last visit to Vaucluse ... we will have to find another place when we have to visit the UES. My wife always enjoyed one dish (Trout with Almonds) and I found almost everything underwhelming. This time we both found the food almost completely lacking in taste. Perhaps it is a lack of seasoning but, for example, wild rice which has no discernible flavor, rubbery, unsalted duck? Pair this with awful service (plates snatched away by the waiter -- not a busboy -- while our forks were midair!) and the fact that I had to ask our waiter twice where the wine was ... it arrived long after the food arrived.

To top it off, we were mighty uncomfortable as the foreign tourists to the left and right of us were ignored to the point of abuse by the waiter (Jack R according to the check). We couldn't wait to leave, skipped deserts (which are a high point in this low point place), and left ASAP.

How a restaurant group which owns the superior place Marea (admittedly, with service based on who you are rather than what you are ... a paying customer) can also offer Vaucluse and Morini is beyond me ... it must be that they know showiness on the UES is more important than quality.

In short, my advice: take some lessons in hospitality and fire the chef.

Have eaten at this locations through all it’s iterations and this one hopefully will be a keeper.
Reviews were accurate and staff was very friendly and accommodating.
Food was simple, accurate, and spot on.
White label burger was a great brunch with requisite fried egg.
Spinach and ricotta pillows were yum.
Menu had nice options and this is a welcome addition to the neighborhood, even if we now reside in Vermont!

we have dined here previously several times during nyc restaurant week, and are frequent clients of the three other Michael White restaurants. seated immediately, restaurant has 2 levels: the lower (west) level is more upscale. Crowd is more mature, local and
well dressed. Service is professional. we had a recently added 4 course tasting menu: big eye tuna, risotto, and dover sole ($25 pp supplement) 2 sides were broccoli and ratatouille
I found the risotto a bit bland, and the veggie sides uninspiring. the sole was well worth the additional cost: fresh, buttery, and perfectly done. Wine was a beautiful bottle of chassange montrachet priced about 2X retail (fair)
will return
if you are looking for an upscale nyc dining experience this is worth consideration

It was my birthday and our wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect from start to finish and we were one of the last tables in the restaurant. I did not want the night to end.

Great atmosphere and live music. We went as a group of three couples celebrating a birthday. The bar level had a great jazz band playing; not too loud and befitting of the atmosphere. The food was very good except I do not recommend the steak frites. While the fries were good the steak was very tough. Not a good cut of beef at all. Other good options were very good.
Be prepared to spend a lot. The 6 of us spent over $1000 and it could have been a lot higher.

Our waiter Jack was great! He was very knowledgeable on the menu, he made fantastic suggestions, was considerate of timing, he split our entrees for us to share, the rest of the staff was also very attentive. Our food was delicious - we had the escargot to start, and our entrees were the raviolis and the chicken. You can’t go wrong with either one. I highly recommend this place. We will definitely be returning to this place.
