We were told upon arrival that our table had a booking two hours from our booking. We were not informed about this when we reserved. We said we would do our best. Throughout the meal, we were told several times that we had to vacate our table soon. Our check was brought without us asking, our plates were removed before everyone was done, and everything was generally rushed. This did not make for a relaxed meal.

The Chef was spot on with flavors. Unbeatable french dining at its finest. Laid-back service but overall very good. If I lived in NYC, I’d be a regular. Would certainly go back.

Amazing food and atmosphere
Service just average
We had dinner at five area restaurants in soho of the same quality
and Raouls is on the expensive side - a little over priced
I think next time i'm in NYC i will try other restaurants of the same quality
probably for less $

We arrived at 6 ( early) were informed , we’d pls. be out by 7!! Okay. We made res. Last minute. But then server took 15 minutes! To get to our table to take our order. No way to dinner in 45 minutes.
We’re given all food at one time . Imagine. We didn’t rush but we didn’t linger either for cconsiderstion of your guests.

It was our daughter’s 26th birthday, we came to Raoul’s for her 25th as well. This has been one of our favorite restaurants for years. And still today, it doesn’t disappoint. Actually, Raouls’ continues to exceed expectation on every level.

We really enjoyed our stay at Raoul's! The food was very good and the service lovely. The place is very crowded and noises- so if you look for a quite place this is not the right address for you.
We can highly recommend the restaurant as we had an amazing evening there!

A frustrating and disappointing evening at a bistro I have frequented whenever in nyc fir 30 years. My dining friend ordered the steak and just did not care for it...and asked to order another meal. Well then the inquisition starts with the manager “explaining” that the steak was prepared as ordered and we had to pay for it. The manager was condescending and pompous. I have never encountered a restaurant tribunal before...all at an establishment I have always loved.

I asked my wife where she wanted to celebrate our 49th anniversary. She immediately answered Raoul’s. We ate there before and were so impressed. The staff is so friendly and professional. The food is superb. This time we had the steaks. They were marvelous.
