Went last May....had pre-theatre prix fixe table d'hôte. Amazing food at a really affordable price. Next time we're in New York we will definitely go back!

We never got to try the food in this restaurant. This was supposed to be a wedding anniversary dinner and the whole family was really happy with the menu (that is not an easy thing to do with kids). About a month prior to the date, we booked a table via their online reservations but never heard back. Two weeks... More

A much anticipated dinner at a well-respected New York restaurant should be a treat. But ,I'm afraid that I can't recommend Aureole in good conscience to my Tripadvisor friends. We were four, two (myself included) new to the restaurant; the other have been there several dozen times it seems. We all experienced the same dismal service and just so-so food.... More

What a disaster. We arrived for our 930pm reservation post-show July 16th. Our first table was right in the window with a MASSIVE electronic sign blinding us every few minutes with a large white ad. We switched tables and it was slightly better. The bathrooms were a dump. And when my friend commented, she was advised 'we just checked them'...... More

We celebrated my birthday there - in the bar room. It was very noisy and the constant reflection of advertising from across the street was rather disturbing - l'Aureole used to be my favorite restaurant in Manhattan, its food exquisite. Formerly, I would have given it an "excellent" score. Today, it would be a 3.5 only. The food quality is... More

Booked this restaurant for a birthday dinner as I have read very good reviews about this restaurant. Crickey, what a major disappointment! Had their tasting menu with wine pairing. From the start, the baguette was stale, tasteless and chewy - am afraid the toast I make at home tastes way better. The fusion dishes they attempted to make was a... More

Play like your Daddy Warbucks at this expensive, venerable restaurant in the heart of Times Square and next door to Conde Nast's new offices. We booked a reservation not realizing it was Prixe Fixe and that the choices were $96 per person, without wine, $125 per person for tasting menu, and up. Dining room is separate and features a more... More

We wanted to dine between our Times Square hotel and our Broadway show, and went on Open Table to see what was available. This newer restaurant is hoping to get the Broadway crowd, and in fact, ask if you have a theatre time scheduled which they accommodate. However we did not feel rushed in the least. True 5 star service... More

For the most part the food was very good but the meal was less than stellar because the female waitress was very snooty and seemed to think she was too good to serve us. I'm not sure why given that my husband and I racked up a nice size bill but she was very condescending and rude. As good as... More

The title says it all. Definitely recommend. Just be prepared to spend. Seldom have had better service. Ask for reservations in dining room if you wish a bit quieter, more elegant atmosphere.
