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...

This place comes alive at night. The cozy atmosphere just adds to the ambiance. The food was delicious but the memorable part was dessert. The sticky fig cake is one of the best desserts I have ever had! The music was great, a lot of 70's and rock the night we went. Sunday night was busy so I can only... More

My friend and I enjoyed a great meal at Raoul's on a recent Friday night. There were at least two tables of French-speaking patrons in our immediate vicinity (translation: street cred!). We shared the delicious foie gras appetizer to start, and my friend ordered the restaurant's signature dish (steak au poivre, served with an enormous portion of fries and a... More

The food was excellent and the price was pretty reasonable. The steak and chicken entrees we very delicious and filling. Our waiter was very knowledgeable. The seating is pretty tight but everything else outweighs that part. If you are in the Soho area you should try it.

We had a nice meal there. We tried a couple appetizers and everyone in our party had something different so it was nice to try a few things. Scallops presentation was lovely. Steaks were done perfectly. Wine list was good. We were full and happy at the end.

I was taken here as a surprise and I absolutely loved it, really lively and the staff are very friendly. The food overall was very good, in particular the warm octopus salad, but the bread that accompanied the steak tartare was slightly stale and the asparagus burnt in some places. The steak au poivre was fantastic though. I would definitely... More
