We LOVE this restaurant. It's surprise off a busy street and the ambience is old world and fun at the same time. Once you walk through the kitchen and enter the garden room, you're in your own little world! Staff is friendly and knowledgable.

A true NYC gem that attracts people who care more about the food and service than the quality of the hype. Great food and great wine at a significant price point. Reservations a must unless really early or really late.

Loved the frisee, bread, burrata and steak au poivre. The asparagus was just average. It is dark inside and does make you feel a bit like you are dining in Paris.

Raoul's is an absolute hidden gem. It's my absolute favourite restaurant anywhere in the world as it has everything. Great martinis at the bar while you're waiting to be seated - or just decide to stop in for a steak frites at the bar - and a wine list to die for. And the wait staff really know their stuff,...

Many spots in NYC. Quite simply, this is one of the best. Great scene, eclectic crowd. Steak frites was great, lump crab, soft shell crab, bigeye tuna, all fantastic. Great portions. Jonah was fantastic.

We were fortunate to get a last-minute reservation at Raoul's through Open Table during Memorial Day weekend. We really enjoyed this restaurant. The food, the excellent maritinis (this place knows how to make a martini!), the ambiance (dark with naked art, oh yeah) were all wonderful. It's very lively with Motown/rock music playing in the background, a fun atmosphere. Our... More

I never say "best ever" but the signature steak au poivre is, in fact, the best ever. In fact Alex (our excellent waiter) was shocked that we didn't finish it. I think we hurt his feelings but I rarely eat more than 4 ounces of meat at a meal these days and it had to be at least eight. "We"... More

I have been coming to Raouls since the two brothers opened this restaurant in SoHo when I was a young teenager. It was always a treat to walk around the corner to Rauls and to have a 'genuine' French Bistro experience. While the staff has turned over some and I have not been in Raouls in six years I was...
