Reserved a table here for our first night in NYC, a Thursday. The place was hoppin' with locals. We had to wait for our table but the atmosphere and people watching were so fun, it didn't matter. Great service, great meal (best artichoke I have EVER had, period, great steak frites, skate). Can't wait to return.

How can a place just seem exciting and friendly, and busy? Just by being itself? I don't get it, but somehow Raoul's does it. And they also do all this while preparing and serving wonderful dinners...going back 30 years too. We had big group for a birthday, got seated right up front. This restaurant has lots of atmosphere, and has... More

This lively French bistro has been a Soho institution since the 70’s. This is a restaurant were you bring your friends from out of town you want to impress with a classic New York evening. An eclectic bunch of locals, stylish European tourists and young, model types make up the late-night bar crowd. There are many reasons to visit, good... More

Great atmospheric spot on the edge of Soho. Great food and drinks. Interesting menu choices for brunch. Everything was superb. You could be in Paris if you closed your eyes.

We stayed in the city for 2.5 weeks. This place knocked out socks off. Steak au Poivre - the house speciality - smashed Baltazar for quality. They split the steak for my partner and I so we could both taste it- nice touch. She had the organic chicken - right up there with the best roast chicken I have ever... More

I wish I could have tried everything on the menu. A fantastic experience. The brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays. We tried 4 appetizers with a fabulous rose. Steak tartare, pate, crab beignets. so good. Can't wait to try it again.

I always stay in SoHo when I visit New York and make a point to always have my hotel book me a table at this special bistrot. It's a classic and not to be missed. Food is superb. So is the wine, the service and the lively and cozy atmosphere. My favorite is the Steak au Poivre. The pommes frites... More

One of my favourite NYC restaurants. I've been here on numerous occasions and always have a fantastic time. Got to go for the Steak au poivre, it's superb! Staff are excellent, fun and knowledgeable. You'll need to book ahead of time for a table (sometimes you can squeeze in at the bar for food). Tables are close together but that's... More

Great cocktails and very tasty food. Mortified to see no cheese available, it's a French bistro, that's like having no pasta at an Italian. That aside, everything we had was good quality ingredients arranged simply but with lots of flavour. Would come back.

it was busy, it's always busy. But we got there early, snagged a table and had a very pleasant evening. Food was top notch, only 4/5 because it was expensive in every way, so don't be fooled into thinking its not. The pepper steak was good, slightly overdone, but next time I'd fix that.

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.
