Ate dinner with my husband on a Friday night in mid-January. The restaurant is vibrant with an interesting and eclectic atmosphere. I ordered a fish entrée and my husband ordered pork. Both were enjoyable. Dessert of bread pudding was a little bland. Raouls is busy and the tables are very close together, so hopefully you are not offended by your... More

we had to wait 40 minutes for a table at the bar on Friday night (even with 3 days calling ahead) - but you can't fault them for being popular. They made sure we were taken care of, the atmosphere was warm and romantic and the food was delicious. A great night out!

This is really a 3.5 review. The food was very good, but aspects of the experience really detracted - hard to get the waiter's attention despite the cramped seating, food service very rushed particularly for such a way overpriced restaurant. On the food side - the foie gras and winter truffle risotto were very good. Meat dishes were nice but... More

Raoul's came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Service was excellent. My companion did not drink wine so the sommelier steered me to a memorable white Menetou as an apperitif followed by a nice cotes de rhone red. I chose the special entree of the evening, ris de veau, which was delicious, followed by the house specialty, steak au poivre.... More

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.
