on a beautiful Saturday we had lunch here and sat outside under big umbrellas. The patio directly in front of the restaurant is fully covered with umbrellas. the side patio (which is actually nicely shaded by the two buildings on either side) can be comfortable even without umbrellas (based on the temperature, of course). Our first time here, but it... More

My friend and enjoyed a wonderful lunch on a rainy day in NYC. Nice menu with good variety. Beet salad was great with very light dressing and perfect as a starter. Attentive service.

This restaurant is a real treasure. We dined here before a Wednesday Broadway matinee. I mention this because their timing was not rushed, but spot-on. The staff were friendly and attentive throughout our dining experience. We began our meal with a refreshing beet salad that consisted of beets, blood orange, roasted carrots, kale and ricotta cheese. For entrees we had... More

Great location, excellent food and service. We had a lovely lunch overlooking Rockefeller Plaza. Wonderful people watching if lunching on the patio, very traditional and cozy if eating indoors. Will definitely be back.

in the middle of hectic Midtown. Whether you visit during lunch time or in the early evening you will always find it very pleasant to spend some time here. Very friendly service adds to the situation and prices are acceptable. The selection of food and drinks enables everybody to find something best liked.

Went to Brasserie Ruhlmann for a weeknight dinner with a good friend. The service was good-- friendly and attentive. The server was helpful in answering questions and making suggestions but he wasn't pushy. I had the skate with lemon caper sauce and it was very good- light, slightly crispy and flavorful. The side of vegetables was especially good- cauliflower and... More

The Rockefeller Center food area was packed and I looked across the street and saw this restaurant and seating outside! We had drinks and the ostyer appetizer. Now this place is a bit pricey but well worth it for a special occasion.

Wasn't in the restaurant as I was dining at their beer garden. Food was below average and service was somewhat confusing. Won't come back.

We were sorry to hear you felt confused by the service in the LT Biergarten as that certainly isn’t the intention. If it isn’t too much trouble, would you mind elaborating on the confusing aspects? Regardless, we hope your experience wasn’t too off-putting so that we might host you again and provide you the excellent service you deserve. Best Regards,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
