Delicious Steak au Poivre with the best hand-cut fries! Front bar section is a little too loud; better in the back section. Candled dessert served under enormous transparent sugar-dripped cage - you have to see it to believe it!

We hadn't been to Raoul's in a few years but had some guests coming in from out of town for a concert in the neighborhood. Raoul's came to mind and no one was disappointed. Excellent drinks, apps (soup, veggies, salads), vegetarian dishes, chicken and fish. Very fun atmosphere, good buzz but not too loud for good conversation. We've got Raoul's... More

This place is classic french and a landmark in Soho. Always crowded, and always good, can't really go wrong.

The genuine French bistro setting was comfortable and authentic. I enjoyed the oysters, foie gras and steak au poivre. I couldn't resist the sticky fig cake and it was well worth it. You can't go wrong at Raoul's!

A wonderful and lively hideaway on a cold winter night. It's been 20 yrs since my wife and I visited-we made a last minute post show reservation on a busy Saturday night. The wait staff was friendly and convivial and the menu remains the same, with some interesting additions. We opted for a half dozen oysters and pate for apps,... More

Years back, it was a must-go night spot and it hasn't changed much in its look ever since. Rather nice to find again some consistency in that city that wonderfulley changes so much. This time around they have brinches and their steack au poivre remains a huge pleasure.

Amazing food. Super cute ambiance. Great service. Oysters were excellent. Martini (slightly dirty) was perfect. Great date place, but also loud...

Ive been going to this restaurant for over 10 years, and still a great place. It is very expensive, almost $50 for the steak! But great service. Some of the staff are a bit arrogant though

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.
