I used only bar corner in this restaurant and had four drinks. The staff members including the bar manager Masa were very friendly and supportive to choose more suitable cocktail or tequila to my preferences. Overall, both the bar area and restaurant area had been full of the guests including dining room in the basement. When visiting the restaurant, the... More

It was a beautiful evening in Manhattan in early August and it was capped off with a great dinner at S+P. The food is what keeps us coming back and the drinks are also outstanding. We ate inside and the service was impeccable. The energy throughout the dining room was evident and we left with smiles on our faces. e... More

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
