The real thing. Quaint, boisterous and full of energy. Just like being in Paris. Awesome food, great service and friendly management. I always pay a visit to Raoul's on every trip to NYC, and have never been disappointed.

I have been going here for 22 years and the quality of food, ambiance and service remain the same! Top drawer! Raoul's is an "experience" rather than just a delicious dinner. The décor reminds one of a bistro in Paris, and the small size only adds to the coziness and the vibe. I prefer to sit at a banquette or... More

Love Raoul's since it is classic and classy. Always busy so have a reservation. Brought a friend that normally goes for all the new and trendy places and she fell in love with Raoul's..didn't even know about it. Artichoke, Bread, Martinis, Pear Salad, Wine, Haricot Verts, Pomme Frites made for an excellent vegetarian dinner with a perfectly lit and lively... More

this is a new York classic. the food is excellent. it is very straight forward food, with perfect products without the sophistication of presentation. we shared 6 different plates on the table, the must was the duck, and then the chicken. the fig dessert was something I had never tried before and it was amazing.

This is a very popular bistro type restaurant in Soho. The menu is mainly French. It is always very crowded. The artichokes and French fries are very good. Big problem is the service. They make you feel as if you should be thankful for being a guest vs vice versa.

We arrived a little before our 8pm reservation. We were promptly seated at a noisy, cramp table next to the kitchen. I couldn't hear myself think. Our waiter, Javier, greeted us graciously and was very helpful. We leisurely enjoyed several drinks. We ordered the salmon and steak au poivre as recommended. The salmon was dry and bland. The steak was... More

Went there with friends in August. We had reservations and were seated in a timely manner. The food was delicious. We tried the pate, the child corn and lobster soup; then the steak au poivre, chicken and the scallops dishes. It was simply presented with tones of flavor. Textures, temperature and presentation were perfect. The service was very professional and... More

Raoul's is the place to be for great food, drinks and hanging out with Soho locals. This is a neighborhood restaurant but in one of the most amazing neighborhoods in the city. This place is fast paced and rocks on a Friday night. Be ready for high energy and great french food and plan on staying for a while, eat... More
