My husband and I both enjoyed the salmon with fresh pea puree. Nice selection of wines by the glass. We were in a bit of a hurry to make a show and they were very accommodating.

Nico the sommelier was excellent. He found great wines at reasonable prices. Isn't that what we all want? The food was very good and the service excellent. Well worth a visit if you're near Bryant Park in NYC.

Hi, I've never seen a gluten-free menu or any dishes that denoted as such in their dining room, but then I've never asked. Play it safe and call them directly.

Offering a range of dining options, the Liberty Room is smart and casual with walnut-topped tables and a back-lit, etched glass front bar with polished natural zinc top surface, the intimate Dining Room is designed in both lighting and texture to give off a golden glow, and The Halo Private Dining Room is wrapped with fabric panel and silver leaf walls, dotted with sculptural back-lit flame sconces. Now in its 29th year, Aureole is contemporary urban elegance.
