Small, buzzy restaurant with excellent food.

We made a reservation a week before, and were seated promptly. Our waiter was friendly and helpful with the food choices. We started with 2 different salads to share for 4 ..... Plenty for all. Then we all ordered the pepper steaks which were outstanding. Reasonable prices.

What a delicious restaurant! Very crowded, small, intimate, very hip and excellent service and food. Try the cold avocado-lobster bisque! And anything else.

The steak was delicious and the service catered to my special needs. It's a small place and quite expensive. Soho is a higher priced neighborhood.

Naked pics on the walls, French waiters and sexy sexy food need I say more. This is great for couples. A real neighbourhood restaurant with a great local vibe but absolutely no intimidation. Another on a list for our return trip to NYC. Loved it!

For a rendezvous with old SOHO friends there can't be a finer venue than this classic French bistro...great atmosphere, downtown crowd, packed bar scene and terrific food. Get one of the front room banquettes if you can so you can watch the supercharged bar scene. It can be noisy...but worth it? Under Eddy's management all the elements that have made... More

I went here with my family and from the beginning we felt like the service was way more arrogant than it used to be. The head waiter was very dry and presented himself as a quite arrogant type which propelled throughout our time at Raoul's. The restaurant is old but cosy. The food is good but not very good. The...

From the outside it looks like a regular lively pub but inside you will discover that this is a nicely designed extremely popular dining spot with classy dishes of French origin. The pepper steak is a signature dish but don't miss out on the foie entree which melts in your mouth and for main course the Skate is also very... More

Love the setting. Cozy neighborhood restraint with a great eclectic mix of people inside. We started with the pork belly (amazing) and artichoke vinaigrette (very good). Next the scallops (one of the best ever), and the steak with pommes frites (fantastic sauce). Finished with the sticky toffee fig cake (wish I had not shared!) Service was very good and the... More

Raoul's is one of our favorite NYC spots because of its character, ambiance, service, and food. Their wine selection is solid and the energy is fantastic. Always love dining here.

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
