Went with a business partner for dinner. Raoul's is extremely condense seating. You are basically seat one on the top of each other. Almost impossible to have a good conversation. We came and after I asked for a quiet place they gave us a booth which was fine but... The back of my seat was the back of the other... More

Raoul's is a NY classic. The place is not very big and gets very crowded, make reservations especially if you are visiting NY. Not recommended for big crowds. Our appetizers were delicious and their famous Steak au Poivre is famous for a reason, I thought it was great. Many restaurants overcook the steak when I request it medium but Raoul's... More

We had short ribs as main and that was average unfortunately.. Overall a good place to have dinner but becareful of the washroom. It is not a place you want to go after a few... More

We went to NYC for a long weekend that pretty much revolved around food and drink. After a lot of research, I booked Raoul's for our last evening when it was just my girlfriend and I. We had been to many great places (Daniel, Gotham Bar, Etc.) during our trip and prior to booking all of these, I had a... More

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

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.
