Always fun and fabulous. Never disappoints. Good solid French inspired food. Can always count on the steak frittes. Also great frissé salad and divine beignets of ham, cheese and truffle. excellent creme brule

We celebrated my birthday at Raoul's. What a great choice! We were seated within minutes of our reservation and had wonderful service throughout our meal. We ordered pate to start, and it was very good. My steak au poivre was cooked perfectly and came with the most delicious fries. My dining companion's skate looked almost too beautiful to eat. The profiteroles came lit with a birthday candle under a gorgeous golden dome spun from sugar. We loved Raoul's.

Fantastic food and high energy, eclectic local establishment. A little cramped but it adds to the character and overall experience.

Been coming here for more than 20 years. Consistently excellent. Go for the steak au poivre but reserve ahead of time. Its always packed and for good reason. Its gotten pricier over the years. But still well worth it.

Raoul's has been a fav for 25 years. I was great for a date and now I bring my kids along! Have hung with Matt Dillon @ the bar, spied George Stephanopoulos out for a bite with his wife, etc. Fab atmosphere and even better food. Steak frites, best in the city!

Raoul's has been on many best burger lists for years and I've tried most of the more expensive "gourmet" burgers on these lists and the majority of them do not live up to the hype, but Raoul's burger is definitely list worthy and is one of the top 5 burgers I've ever had. Everyone in our dining group agreed. Make a brunch reservation online and get the burger. You won't regret it.

Raoul’s is perfect. The food is wonderful, the wine list well curated and fit for any occasion. But the magic is in the people. You are greeted warmly, and taken care of throughout the evening, from bar to table.

Best burger in NYC. Yes, it's better than Minetta Tavern. Go for brunch if you want it, otherwise Monday-Fri they only serve 12 burgers a day and only at the bar. Also, their starters on the brunch menu are all REALLY good.

Great place to have fun and listen to loud music if you like that type of atmosphere. It was a little too loud to hear our friends but they played great stuff!
The food was very good!

Raouls has overpriced food but does prepare it well. I found the Sunday evening noise level to be unacceptable. It is very overcrowded. Staff worked hard to please us.

Seated immediately. Cozy space with engaging art and cool jazzy soundtrack. Professional service. Delish food. Took me back to Paris but without the plane ride. Artichoke vinaigrette was the best I ever had. Tried to recreate it at home but came up short.

Pricey but definitely a keeper.
