French American
The dining room combines casual comfort and sophistication with touches that are both rough-hewn and refined. But the main attraction is the partly open kitchen’s rôtisserie ovens and their fine whole fish, meats and poultry turning over open flames. Abundant seasonal vegetables, some decadent potato dishes and classic French desserts and house made ice creams and sorbets, complete the picture. The simply roasted fare is primarily gluten free. At lunch, we add generous main course salads, tempting pot pies and sliders. Bordeaux and Burgundy collectors will find their pleasure on the primarily French wine list. The bar is not to be missed for after-work Upper East Side people watching, classic and seasonal cocktails and bar bites. The soul-satisfying French-American comfort fare is complemented by the warm welcome of your host, Georgette Farkas. The “ROTISSERIE TABLE” private room seats ten.

My colleagues from France say that they want their final meal to be the perfect roast chicken. They will get their wish at Georgette's. The food is truly outstanding. Service is attentive but not intrusive. The only negative is the noise level. The ceilings are quite high so during crowded times the voices are magnified. You will not be disappointed in any way at this lovely restaurant.

This is one of our "go to" places whenever we're in the city. Charming and cozy but sophisticated.
Chicken stuffed with fois gras (where else?). Lovely wines, even by the glass.

Roasted chicken is nicely done - but does require one of their sauces. We needed additional sauce to finish.

Overall a good experience. The staff are accommodating, thank you. The menu has a lot of interesting options if ordered in advance. Unfortunately, we didn’t. It will be interesting to offer the full menu if possible. A little disappointed with the chicken de luxe. Not the same that brought me back to countless times to rotisserie georgette. I will try again.

The food and ambiance at Rotisserie Georgette is excellent and of very good value. We went for a quick pre theater dinner and between 6 and 7pm midweek, the restaurant was reasonably quiet and very pleasant. Service was also excellent, as they asked ahead of time about theater arrangements and advised which meals were available without significant delay, as one of us had been detained by the subway system. Made it to a 7pm in the neighborhood, show without a problem.

My wife has several food allergies, and the staff was extremely attentive and accommodating. The sommelier was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

The food is always spot on. Great concept. Superb ingredients that are extremely well executed. Dishes bursting with flavors. Healthy way of eating on the rotisserie; plus some great & indulgent sides and small plates. Excellent, well chosen wine list with great offerings at all price points. And, the warm, welcoming, personal service of one of the great hosts in NYC, the one and only Georgette Farkas. She is up there with some of my greatest restaurant hosts in the world over the last 35 years: Jean-Claude Vrinat & Jean-Marie Ancher of Taillevent in Paris & Glibert Lau of the Flower Drum in Melbourne. Australia.

Rotisserie Georgette is a gem in New York City, a bit of France on East 60th. Everyone goes for the Chicken but don't be shy to try something else. The ribs and the duck is just as good.

One of my sons and I spent the weekend together in “The City”. I made a reservation for a Sunday lunch prior to leaving for home. Having been here before a few times I told him we “had to go for the roast chicken”.

The Roast Chicken for two, with seared foi gras, haricots verts, pommel frittes , and a mixed green salad is the go to best in town!

Kim, the sommelier was most helpful and attentive and suggested the perfect burgundy to complete our meal. She is the consumatte professional!

Hats off to this cozy, friendly east side gem!!

We will be back!!

This might not be the best choice for brunch.
Brunch choices were limited (scrambled eggs--really?)
Where were the crepes, the waffles, the creative
pancakes?
This restaurant is a dinner place, I guess

We have dined at Rotisserie Georgette many times and always recommend it to out of town friends. No more. The service was abysmal. The servers were indifferent, at best, rude at worst. We waited approximately 1 and 1/2 hours for our entrees - 3 different staff said, about 15 minutes apart, “it’s coming right out”. The maître d’s involvement made no difference. When the entrees arrived, the chicken was fine, the sides were meager and not nearly as good as previously. (The menu has changed not for the better, eg duck no longer available for one person, only two.) A complimentary small plate of cookies, followed almost immediately by the check we didn’t ask for, didn’t change our view of the evening. We were embarrassed to have brought our friends.
