Lunch, dinner, & brunch can be enjoyed at either the art deco style mirrored bar or in the dining room. Designed by Ion Oroveanu, the restaurant features Lalique crystal wall sconces, bronze sculptures from the 1930's, etched Erte mirrors, Lanvin chandelier and pink Finnish granite, all harmonizing to create a visual ambiance that can be savored equally with the unsurpassed gourmet experience.

Petrossian is an excellent restaurant, particularly for things like caviar and fish, but the service is dreadful. The atmosphere is old world Russian cafe and a bit gaudy but nice. The wait staff was friendly and helpful, but the hostess set a terrible tone during her seating of our party and throwing menus at us with a grunt. The tuna... More

Petrossian is probably the place for caviar, but we didn't do that - a bit more scratch than we were willing to part with, frankly. Even so, a very nice restaurant, not far from Central Park. Oysters were perfect, but even better were the salmon appetizers, especially the Petrossian salmon sampler. A huge serving of various smoked salmon varieties, with... More

We expected better. We read reviews and a friend had highly recommended that we eat at this restaurant. Pros: very well appointed; service appropriate; Caviar excellent! Cons: would suggest they increase their Vodka selections - to pair with excellent Russian Caviar; our fish dinners were average - my wife's sturgeon a bit over cooked. Would recommend Caviar Russe as an... More

My wife was in the mood for a pre dinner treat. We were staying at the London and let ourselves drift up to Petrossian for a little caviar. Glad we did. We sat at the bar around 6pm and it was quiet in the restaurant. Nice. The caviar list is very well thought out and we went with a medium... More

Recently had my birthday lunch celebration at the this marvelous place. I had read the positive reports on this site and can only second their votes for a very special experience. My husband and I both had the pirice fixed three course lunch without caviar (for $32) although the latter was offered as a choice as well. The chef gets... More

This restaurant has a simple elegance to it. You could spend quite a tidy sum on food, but they offer prix fix options during lunch. I opted for a little borscht ($14)(slightly sweet and tasty, included two little meat pastries) and the smoked salmon sampler($24)(salmon 4 different ways, subtly smoked, very nice). A nice, cold Becks beer ($7) and a... More

This is a beautiful place where you could easily spend a large amount of money for dinner, but they have a wonderful price fixe lunch that offers a terrific dining experience for under 35$. We arrived about 2PM, after a nice stroll in nearby Central Park, to an almost empty restaurant. Officially they stop serving lunch at 2:30, but we... More

Why Petrossian isn't packed at all meals is beyond me. The food is excellent and there is enough variety for every taste. It is one of the most beautiful restaurants in N Y. The prices include pris fixe and a la carte. A romantic spot for all ages.

The $34.00 prix fixe brunch is a great value. Three courses and the food is excellent. This decor is art deco, the service wonderful. Caviar is a supplemental fee but is always worth it.
