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.

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.

This was our first visit to Rotisserie Georgette and we could not have been happier with our experience. The staff offered a high level of personal attention, starting at the front door and continuing from there; the dining room is beautiful and the food is delicious. We came for a special occasion and dessert arrived with a very dramatic version of a sparkler which will be an abiding memory. This is a lovely, gracious restaurant and we will definitely return.

ROTISSERIE GEORGETTE is an excellent and professionally run Upscale Restaurant and one of our favorites in New York City —-it is overseen and supervised by the very personable owner Georgette—- The duck is always one of our favored dishes as it is fresh and the portions are ample —-excellent wine list and overall the service is impeccable and the ambience warm and welcoming.

I absolutely love Rotisserie Georgette! I have been dining there since it opened years ago, it has been my go to for birthday lunch and dinners for my friends. The food never fails to be short of delicious and the staff are very kind, warm and welcoming. Not what you would expect from an UES French restaurant.The decor is chic and classy. The ambiance is buzzing.

If you've got money to burn, this place is fine, and midtown location is convenient. This place is overpriced in general. White asparagus appetizer was heavenly but $38 for FOUR large stalks is absurd. I am sorry the say the roast chicken for 2--which should be outstanding, as it is a signature dish here, and not cheap at $38 per person with no sides/ accompaniments-- was dry and overcooked. My friend spotted cooked chickens being thrown on a grate for reheating in the kitchen before being served. The roasted duck for 2 was outstanding and a much better value-- plenty of meat on that duck! Potatoes/ sides were great. The nonalcoholic cocktail they served was amazing, basically 100% berries. Wine/ bar selection seemed good, I don't drink so I am not an authority. Drinkers at table seemed satisfied. Desserts were pretty good. Waitstaff was wonderful!!! Cute place but EXTREMELY loud. Like, ear-splitting.

Good food but won’t go back. After ordering a martini,a $135 bottle of wine, and an appetizer, we were asked by our server if we were going to “order more food or go straight to dessert”. Insulting service always ruins the dinner, no matter how good the food is.

We are at Rotisserie Georgette last year and loved it then. We decided to take some friends there, and it was disappointing. We ordered the duck for two, which we absolutely loved last time, and our fronds ordered the pintade. Both dishes were so undercooked that we had to send them back. Very surprising! Additionally the dick simply was not as flavorful as last time.

I have been several times in the past and found it to have gone downhill. The room, ambiance and service well all still good, but the food was quite sub-par. There was way too much salt in everything (a cheat to improve flavor of poor ingredients or bad cooking); the french fries were mushy; the asparagus (featured as 'in season' on the menu) were fat and slimy and did not seem fresh or special in any way.
Overall, the meal was a disappointment and also very expensive.

What a disappointment. We were looking for a place that served tasty but simple food. From what we read, Rotisserie Georgette should have been perfect. Instead the cooking was INEPT. Grilled asparagus was salted like a Central Park pretzel. Chicken was dry. French fries were mushy. Rare burger was brown through and through. The server was nice enough and we liked the atmosphere, but can't see paying those prices for that quality.

The fois gras and jus add a dimension to this well presented dish that makes it so special! The atmosphere coupled with the attentive service gets them ‘all the stars’!
Thanks to our server Pamir for a job well done!

We had a wonderful dining experience this week at Rotisserie Georgette. The dining area is quite gracious, with plenty of space between tables and a quite high ceiling. The service was first rate. Several folks helped out, with proactive but not intrusive activity. And the food was really delicious. While I opted for the signature (and excellent) roast chicken, my companion hit a hone run with the rib entree. Plentiful and flavorful. The brussel sprout side dish was a treat. And the asparagus starter which (I believe) Georgette recommended was a great way to start the meal. We will definitely be back.

Only criticism is the size of the cocktails. I had a vodka gimlet straight up. The glass could have come from a kids play set, and it was only 3/4 full amounting to maybe 4 sips. I'd rather pay more than have a tiny cocktail glass. It's the smallest I've ever seem.
