An Upper East Side French restaurant from Michael White with very good food. It's fancy, without being too formal.
Loved the jazz music during dinner. Portions of food could be bigger. Especially for the prices.
It was my Birthday and the staff, food, ambiance and all around experience was simply first class and amazing.
Fabulous food and outstanding service!
The service was honestly terrible....will never go back.
Another superb meal at Vaucluse. Excellent lobster bisque to start, can also recommend the trout and lamb chops. Superb, professional staff.
I love this restaurant, and we go there pretty often. My only gripe is that despite the fact that I'm a good customer (and I imagine they know that/that there is some sort of record of at least our opentable visits), they always seem to try and stick us at a crappy table. I always request a table against the wall, and when we show up, it's always as if I never made the request. Maybe an issue with the up-front people? Or maybe it's because we're younger than the usual diners there (we're in our 30s), but you'd think the restaurant would want to treat their regulars better. Especially regulars that regularly order the Dover Sole! The food is fantastic though, and the service is always knowledgeable and polite.
I loved Vaucluse! I am a fan of all chef Michael white’s restaurants and Vaucluse certainly lives up to his reputation. Beautiful ambiance, not too loud so easy to talk but still a buzzing atmosphere. Excellent food and wine and great service!
Great food and wonderful service
Food exceeded expectations and service was good. It was more of a nice meal than a special experience. The tagliatelle with black truffles, veal chops and steak were standouts. No amuse bouche which was surprising to me. Wine list was very good but pricey.
First time visit to this relatively new restaurant. It was easy to get a reservation for Thursday night on relatively short notice. Nice table on the upper level and attentive service. Food was excellent, wine list extensive. It was quiet and very easy to have a private conversation. Very acceptable experience.
There is jazz music a few nights a week after 8:30pm
This is an unsatisfying birthday dinner. The food were alright, but the service was definitely lacking. After our server took our order, he went on missing for the remaining night, The food runners were good but there were only so much they could accommodate, No one acknowledges us, so we have to talk to the supervisor and she assigned a different server. Also, they totally forgot about the birthday celebration part, for a fine dining establishment, they have failed.
Server was very personable and interacted well with us. No real vegan choices so chose risotto which was very salty. My sister in law did the same for cost reasons. My mother-in-law chose the salmon but the server misunderstood and got the order wrong so our risottos got cold while we waited for salmon to come out. The server apologized multiple times for the error.
My sister-in-law and I got the bread pudding to share which was also disappointing because everything had the same taste and consistency.
I love French food and wanted to love this place but was disappointed because the food was not the best and there was no effort to accommodate the order error (like offering to comp a dessert for example). For the price I’ll choose someplace else.
I wanted to like it, I did. But food was hit or miss. Lamb was very dry. Duck was super salty. Tagliatelle was also rather salty and too heavy. Fries were overcooked. But escargot in bone marrow terrific, as was rabbit ravioli. Service was also excellent--attentive but not overbearing.
My newest favorite French restaurant in NYC.
Another gem from Michael White. French cuisine with a well-trained staff and fabulous food. The setting is very comfortable and they pay special attention to make your experience personalized. Though pricing is relatively high, not necessarily steep compared with others in this Park Ave. section. All in all, the meal is an un-rushed, stylish affair with a staff that is accommodating yet in the background. Food is expertly prepared and the room is a classic. Worth a return visit as are his other places.
Vaucluse is one of the most outstanding restaurant in NYC, all is amazing. And food you can believe it. There is a lot of restaurant in the city very popular, but they are no so good. This is an exception. Vaucluse is one of the best restaurant we have ever been.
Great food great service. I’ll be back.
Restaurant was fine, good food, large portions, great drinks and good service.
I took my fiancee here for a Valentine's dinner, and we shared the fixed price meal. It was incredibly delicious and my fiancee, who normally doesn't care for seafood, was enamored by all the entrees particularly the salmon. I'd definitely come here again, and it's really close to the Q subway stop at 63rd street which makes it extra convenient. Well worth the price for the flavor and ambiance!
Understated elegance in a beautifully organized, airy room, offering delicious Gallic cuisine presented by friendly, cultured staff...if you are looking to dine as opposed to eat, visit Vaucluse.
Ambiance and service were incredible. Food did not live up to it though.. food was great but not as good as I expected for price and service.. could have been fresher.
Amazing drinks, food, service and ambiance. Wonderful staff etc
We will be going back very soon!
We went to Vaucluse on Valentine's Day. It was a multi-course menu with wine pairing which was VERY expensive. That being said, the food was delicious, the service attentive, and we were not rushed. They were slow to serve us initially, but it was very crowded.
We had a wonfderful evening on Valentine’s Day. The atmosphere in the restaurant was great. The menu was very good. We took the vegatarian option. For us the cauliflower was too greasy and too salty but overall it was a great special menu. We enjoy dining at Vaucluse.
Amazing! The staff was knowledgeable and helpful, the wine staff (sommelier), world class. The food was beautifully prepared without being fussy.
Thanks to all!
The food is good. The deco very agreeable.
Service could be more attentive and more up to the standards of the food and decor.
Overall, fairly positive experience and worth repeating.
A once again perfect evening of outstanding service and dining. Celebrated my birthday the best way I could. Thank you for a great night
Our server was super friendly. Was impressed by the decor and ambiance of the restaurant.
Vaucluse had an excellent menu for Restaurant week. I particularly appreciated a wine option for Restaurant Week.
My friend and I took advantage of New York Restaurant Week to have lunch at Vaucluse on the last day of this special offer. We both enjoyed the pate appetizer; I had a wonderful veal dish and she had delicious fish called "bream." The chocolate mousse was also terrific. Even the wine was on special - $9 per glass instead of the usual $16 or $17. This is a pricey restaurant but the service was impeccable, as was the ambiance, and we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.
Considering the cost, (when not restaurant week) , we found the food to be fair but not
exceptional. Did not meet our expectations.
It was one of the best restaurant I've ever been. Especially this RW. romantic and fancy. Everything was so amazing and my friend and I were very satisfied. I would definitely visit this restaurant again. Highly recommendation!
We love this restaurant. Easy to get a reservation, beautiful restaurant and great food
It was Restaurant Week and the lunch menu was extensive. The food was delicious, service was excellent, ambiance was lovely. Altogether an enjoyable experience.
Good food and service. Reasonable value for Restaurant Week. Quite noisy.
It was a delightful setting for a fun luncheon with friends.
Food was soooo good! Like the interior
We dined at Vaucluse for Restaurant Week lunch. The selections were great and also had a reasonably priced wine pairing or cocktails.
I enjoyed the pate and my husband had the delicious lobster bisque. The entree I selected was duck sausage with fresh eggy noodles. My husband had the braised veal in puff pastry also delicious. But if there is fresh pasta on the menu I would not hesitate to order it.
The desserts were wonderful especially the citron basil ice cream, so imaginative!
Service was very attentive. Luisa was our lovely server.
If you are there during your work day, fear not you will be there for no longer than your lunch hour allows.
Love the lobster bisque, smoke salmon good. Friendly services.
Disappointing Restaurant Week dinner from start to finish. Previously, we had enjoyed our other 3 meals here.
This time the service was pretty poor- we had to flag down a manager just to get water in the beginning because none was forthcoming. Then no one came to get our order so we had to ask the manager again and she took our order. We had the lobster bisque soup and the salad appetizers which were just OK. Then the sea bream entree was bland and the veal entree was tasty but tiny. The ice cream desserts were OK but the vanilla was virtually tasteless. We would rate this meal as a B or B minus
