This has been a favourite haunt for more than two decades

My wife and I have been coming here for a long time. We used to live around the corner back in the day. Changes ownership several times but consistently good. Really a shame the garden room through the kitchen is gone but still a great bistro! Taro card reader upstairs is a cute touch for that... read more

Had been recommended to go here by a friend who lives in New York, and boy, it did not disappoint. Went for a tuna starter and fusilli with lobster as the main. Both extremely good! The service was friendly and attentive, and they even have a fortune teller upstairs!

Delicious fresh menu served by well informed staff. The frisee salad with pistachios and lardons is craveable. I can never resist it, always pretend I am going to share it with my husband. Someday he may get a taste. Steak frites is always on the mark, and daily specials tempt us to new tastes.

We eat here almost every time we visit the city. The steak frites are the best I have ever had. Service is exemplary. The wine list is good. My dining companions rave about the dishes they order The place is small so make a reservation. The decor is a bit different with some interesting art on the walls. The bar... More

Went to Raoul's following a recommendation. Good food and excellent Mohito but very noisy and quite cramped. We were sitting on a small table for two in the bar area and my chair was constantly being knocked by people going past. Suggest you get a table in the back if you want to avoid this.

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.

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.
