buzzy step back in time

I can't thank the manager / front-of-house enough for looking after us on a very busy Tuesday evening. We were over for a short vacation and were really looking forward to Raoul's. Unfortunately i'd a) booked the wrong month and previously missed a reservation (which they'd noted) and b) failed to... read more

Had dinner here with my girlfriend, had oysters for starters, then Burrata and Foie Gras, ended with the Goat cheese cheesecake and Fondant au chocolat. Lovely little french restaurant, has a great vibe and the food is delicious. They also have a nice bar and a good wine selection. I recommend, not too pricey either.

Ah, Raoul's, you made me so very happy. We were seated in a cozy booth in the back by the kitchen. Interesting art work including several nudes adorn the walls. Then the food began. Ham and truffle beignets that were so light and full of flavor, zucchini risotto, creamy and perfectly cooked, watermelon and tomato salad perfect for summer, steak... More

This was one of those dining experiences where the "oohs" and "ahs" began with the first appetizer and did not stop until after dessert. Drinks were all fine, however it was a little unusual for an individual glass of red wine to be more expensive than a martini with a premium vodka. The menu was dazzling and every dish chosen...

Raoul's is a terrific french bistro/pub in Soho. Food is fresh and menu is updated regularly, while standards are continued month to month and year to year. You really cannot go wrong her, although it is a little on the pricey side, with most entrees over $25, and several over 30. But, they are really good. Service is excellent and... More

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 nawleens feel. A must... 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!

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.
