日本人の私にとって、メニューの英語がとても分かりにくく、さらにレストラン内が薄暗く読むのに大変苦労した。でも、店員さんの親切な対応で頼んだ料理どれも素晴らしかった。
値段の方はというと、一番安いもので10ドルから高いものだと50ドルくらいなので、ニューヨークであの立地と考えるとめちゃめちゃ高くはないと思う。
なのでもしこれを読んだ日本人の方がいるなら、ニューヨークへ行く際全然是非寄ってみて欲しい。

Good food, Poor service; table not ready, then after being directed to the bar were told we couldn’t transfer the bar bill to our table. Waiter was slow and inattentive, didn’t provide plates for the bread, didn’t once check in on the food, had to be asked three times for a drinks refill and provided dessert menus but didn’t come to take an order for 15 minutes....

Great service and food! If you note a birthday celebration in open table they remember and add a candle to your desert which is great.

Fantastic night at this iconic new york restaurant. The steak au poivre was perfectly cooked and delicious. The choice of sides was great and the grilled broccoli was really tasty. A huge wine list was also good with a massive selection of french as well as us wines. Would definitely go again next time in NYC.

Wonderful old school French brassiere with classic French cuisine done extremely well. From the steak au pouvrie to the pomme frites to the profiteroles you can’t go wrong. Excellent service, as well.

I LOVE RAOUL'S! My husband and I meet for late dinners here and always roll home full, tipsy and elated. The service is really always outstanding. Everything from the bar/ host staff's greeting to the experience at the table makes us feel so well cared for; I find the interpersonal style of the team to be very direct, professional, and effective, but also always warm. This place is such a New York institution; it's an absolute privilege to enjoy it from time to time. Thanks to the whole damn team!

Amazing classic French style restaurant.
The food is exquisite and the atmosphere fantastic. It’s not for those looking for a quiet night out as noise levels are high but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Efficient staff, eclectic artwork and food so delicious that my mouth waters at the mere thought of it! Go!! It should be illegal not to!

Raoul’s is the best. It’s our regular go-to because while the food is really great (get the frisbee salad no matter what else you do)- the people are incredible and make you feel so welcome and at home. Plenty of celebrities come to this old school restaurant that has stayed popular for over 40 years but they treat everyone wonderfully and care more how you behave than who you are

I consider Raoul's a Soho landmark. The food is always excellent and the art was curated over years of serving neighborhood artists. The atmosphere has a comfortable patina and the service is excellent.

We had a late lunch in prep for a show in the evening. The restaurant is small, the service is outstanding and the food is memorable. The steak au poive (their specialty) is not to be missed. Best I've ever had. Pricey and worth every penny! My wife chose the frisse salad which was also fantastic. The bartender is fun and quick with a unique take on a Bloody Mary. They're also known for their burger (a chopped take on the steak au poive) and a few people around us that had it were ooing and ahing.
A real Village experience. Enjoy. We'll be back.

I’m never disappointed!
And if you want Gr8 recommendations on the wine, ask for Andrew. He recommended a Bourgogne Dominique Lafon. Great choice. Thank You Andrew.
I tried the halibut over my usual streak au poivre and it was one of the best prepared halibuts I’ve had the pleasure to taste. If you love scallops, order them.
