Saju Bistro Ratings and Reviews
I keep coming back here because I can always get a table even tho' the place is always packed: there's a nice vibe and the music is good! The food is way above average and the prices are right! The service is attentive but not intrusive and the front desk is pleasant. I like the fact that the name comes from the first two letters of each child! Recently had muscles which were terrific from PEI and on another night - had the Salmon which was wonderful and with a healthy portion. It has become the go-to place when in the theater district..and being close to 6th Ave I can even come when I'm not going to the theater!
Nice selection of Country French and American comfort foods, steak and potatoes, etc. The wait staff was professional and respectful of our theater show times. The kitchen was responsive and adapted to our requests.
It does get a bit crowded and noisy, but it's theater district Manhattan after all.
Decent selection of wine, beer and other cocktails.
I recommend it for pre-post theater and special occasions.
We had dinner here pre-theatre. The restaurant was just down the street from our hotel, the Iroquois on 44th St. We were greeted immediately upon arrival and seated. The food was wonderful. I had the Sea Bass and would highly recommend this dish. The service was also wonderful and my only complaint is that we ordered a second glass of wine to accompany our dinner and it did not come. The waiter was busy with new arrivals. However, we cancelled the wine order and the waiter did not charge us for our first glasses of wine. We were satisfied and will definitely return.
Food was decent; service could be more attentive. We were not offered olive oil with our bread or fresh pepper with our pasta. The wines by the glass were “not the best” since they tasted a little watered down. There seemed to be plenty of room in the back, but we we were not offered seating there. We were seated in the front where it was crowded and, perhaps, the staff had too many tables to manage.
A return visit for a lovely pre-theater lunch with a friend. Garlicky moules and frites, hanger steak with mashed and haricot vert, cappuccino and profiteroles. Every item was tasty. Service was pleasant and efficient without being pushy. Even while the restaurant was humming you could hear yourself think. My non-touristy, go-to lunch destination by Times Square right across the street from the Hudson Theater.
First time here and it will now become a regular pre-theatre spot. Un Deux Trois is just across the street - also another regular for me - but this one is cozier and doesn't have the cavernous feeling that UDT has. Had the rabbit/gnochi stew which was excellent. My friend had the standard-fare moules mariniere/pommes frites which rarely fails. Only two points to make: I ordered scotch and suppose it was a measured one ounce. Could barely detect it in the glass so had to order a double ($22). Usually, when ordering a scotch (straight), there's at least a finger's depth for a single. Second: the wine list is interesting - by the bottle. By the glass, it's very limited. So, I stayed with the scotch. Other than these relatively minor points, loved the place and the food and the excellent service. Not to mention the very genial welcome by the door, both in entering and leaving. Bon Appetit!
I've been to Saju many times and it is consistently very good. The wait staff are very pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and very helpful with wine pairings. Everything I've had here has been very good but I can't seem to resist the Mediterranean Sea Bass as well as the Rigatoni with Sausage & Broccoli Rabe! Upon entering the restaurant, I have always received a very warm welcome and I always feel as though I've been swept away from the hustle & bustle of the City and ensconced in a another world. Certainly one of the hidden jewels in the City!
A French restaurant that doesn’t serve champagne by the glass? And where the waiter tried to sell me sparkling from California, and Prosecco from Italy, as if it were champagne? Doesn’t build confidence in the authenticity of the French experience. Good food though and good service.
This is my favoriite theater district restaurant by far
1. The food is always great and well prepared (I am a big fan of French bistro food)?
2 The service is fantastic and they are great at getting you out on time to get to the theater with no worres
What more could you ask for
Did I mention that I love their food?
This time they were especially crowded for dinner but getting out in time was not even close to being an issue and the food as always was great. I am always very happy here and I have pretty much made it my pre theater dinner place exclusively
Early excellent dinner after an excellent matinee of Farinelli and the King. The place is very clean and inviting. Nicely proportioned duck salad nicoisse. Vegetarian pasta was especially good, and very filling. Chocolate mousse was also right on. Last was a very well made cappuccino. No doubt this place is NYC expensive, but you get what you pay for. Espresso-Martini was delicious, and $16. We have no qualms recommending you come here.
Came here for a date with my boyfriend when we were visiting NYC. The food was pretty good and seemed to be the usual price for anything in New York. The service and kitchen were extremely fast! The decor was cozy and romantic yet the noise level was normal. Great, convenient location.
I really like this place. I like the menu; I like the olives they put on the table; I like the servers; and I especially like the fact that the servers ask if you have a curtain to make and they make sure you're out in time. It's my go-to place in the Theatre District. The back room, closest to the kitchen, is the least crowded and the quietest.
It had been recommended on Trip Advisor as Gluten Free friendly. It was not. Also, they used too much garlic in several dishes. The risotto shrimp special was without much flavor.
French onion soup was great, as was the lamb shank.
Good location for theater & cozy atmosphere. Service was very good.
