Really 3.5. I really really really wanted to love this restaurant. Like when you go on a date with a super handsome charming man and think "he is the one!" Full of anticipation and excitement. Then by the end of the date you realize that he is not the one, it isn't love. Just....like. This restaurant has a terrific menu... More

I've eaten at Saxon + Parole three times and somehow just neglected to write a review. On a recent trip to New York my husband and I went and I was reminded of how terrific it is so I'm catching up now. I'm a pretty adventurous eater and my husband is not so it can be hard for us to... More

We went for my wife's 40th Birthday on our trip across the US. We had a great night. The restaurant is vibrant, the décor is on trend, the service was brilliant and the food beautiful. We loved it all. I would recommend Saxon and Parole to anyone for a funky and fresh night out with a wonderful selection on the... More

If we hadn't been starving we would have walked out. The food is nice enough, more style than substance but then that's the nature of the gaff and it was indeed edible and good quality. But the waitress! Oh wow, could a service giver be any more rude?? She was appalling: rude, surly, unhelpful., dismissive, arrogant, pompous. Truly diabolical.

The Manhattans "on tap" are delicious. You MUST try the Truffled Portobello mushroom "Pot". I would never think of ordering it, but a friend suggested it and it was amazing. So good we ordered a second one after we devoured the first.

Very nice interior! Food was very good; from the steak to the chicken to the oysters! A great place with an unpretentious feel. Wine and drink list were ideal! They have a fabulous burger on the menu too.

Went to Saxon & Parole after reading the NYT article on their remaking the Dirty Martini, which is usually the most vile salt bomb of a drink on the planet. But S&P spent two years concocting a new version, which they call the 7 Olives Martini. We ordered it and it came with seven different olives on the side (bamboo... More

Second time now for us. If you like a vibrant, fun room with great food. Do it. Server was great - we shared the family style ribeye - loved everything. Worth every penny. Great Nite. Thanks Saxon & Parole. You are our new favorites in NYC

Some foodie friends were visiting from Australia and I wanted to be sure their palettes wouldn't be disappointed. The black truffle buratta appetizer special was to die for. We also ordered the hamburger - cooked to perfection - and the scallops, a nice small sized entre which left me feeling light. Overall the ambiance of the restaurant allowed us the... More
