Description: Aureole, New York is the flagship showcase for Charlie Palmer's unabashed, energetic signature Progressive American cuisine. Now under the culinary leadership of Executive Chef Gabriele Carpentieri, the kitchen turns out elegant, simple dishes with sharply focused flavors like Wagyu Beef Carpaccio with crispy shiitake, scallions, taro root, ponzu and lavash cracker. Aureole is located within the spectacular Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, the most environmentally advanced skyscraper in the world. 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.

For the most part the food was very good but the meal was less than stellar because the female waitress was very snooty and seemed to think she was too good to serve us. I'm not sure why given that my husband and I racked up a nice size bill but she was very condescending and rude. As good as the food was, I wouldn't go back due to the service, at least not on a Friday night.

The title says it all. Definitely recommend. Just be prepared to spend. Seldom have had better service. Ask for reservations in dining room if you wish a bit quieter, more elegant atmosphere.

Times Square options are good but this one is especially nice. The food (Scallops were some of the best I've ever had) was good and service outstanding. We did not have reservations but went on Sunday night so I suspect you will need them on most any other evening. Will definitely visit again.

Went there for a good dinner and a nice time out. Showed up without a reservation but that was no problem. Food was excellent and the service was great even though the place was packed. Not too expensive. Would go there again.

We recently enjoyed the Big Mag Boeuf Sunday Supper at the Liberty Room Aureole. First, the location is a wonderful respite off busy Times Square. Both the food and service were exceptional in quality, the wine is a nice touch, and the fixed price represents a great value. Despite the upscale setting, the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. We most definitely will return the next time we are in the City.
