If you want great food, a great and lively atmosphere and fantastic service. GO! We changed our reservations to Raoul's somewhat at the last minute and were so fortunate to get a table at this NYC spot that was packed!

We were seated downstairs where the noise level may be too loud for some. My fiancé and I seemed to forget about the noise level once our dinner experience began to roll. Everything was top notch. This restaurant is a true staple of the neighborhood.

We chose this old school French bistro based on its good reviews, and we're not disappointed. Service was exceptional, as was the food and ambience. Make no mistake, this is NOT a library, and it gets a little noisy. Wonderful, and will return to this gem.

I hadn't been to Raoul's in perhaps fifteen years. My son is going to high school in the area next fall and we stopped by for an early supper. The place has not lost a beat! It is more of a neighborhood place rather than a "destination" restaurant now, but it still has that "village" vibe, excellent servers and great... More

This was our first visit to Raoul's and it was well worth the visit. Our son who brought us highly recommended the Steak au Poivre and it didn't disappoint. Done to perfection with the Peppercorn Sauce and simply delicious frites. The atmosphere was lively and inviting. I would definitely return!

The food was acceptable and the service was somewhat mechanical, a place for refuelling rather than getting a memorable meal. They tried hard with the dishes but they just failed to excite! The wine prices, quite frankly were horrendous and when shall these places realise that dimming the lights does not make atmosphere, it just makes it difficult to read... More

I used to go to Raoul's every time...but that was many years ago. We went last night, a very late dinner: plates are smaller than they used to be. The pasta with ratatouille has so little pasta that my 9 year old daughter wanted to complain to the Chef. She was underwhelmed with the plate. The best dishes are the... More

I have been going to Raoul's for a number of years now and although I have tried a few of things on the menu, I must say that they prepare my favorite pepper steak! The meat is tender and full of flavor and the pepper sauce brings in just enough heat without overpowering the meat. Now, when visiting NYC I... More

We had brunch here and just had a wonderful time. This is an old time New York restaurant that oozes atmosphere and has (for brunch) a brunch appropriate menu. The service was friendly and the meal very nicely prepared. We were a group of 8 and they carried it off with aplomb.

Amazing Francophile experience. Food, ambiance, staff and fellow clientele do not disappoint. A hidden gem worth a trip from any point in NYC.

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.
