It was a beautiful evening so we requested a table outside.

Our mistake , it was rush hour and noisy with traffic.

However , have dined outside at other times and it can be very pleasant.

Lovely brunch in an upscale neighborhood. Great place for a day spent at Central Park or shopping along 5 th Avenue. Very busy. Eclectic menu- French but also a sushi bar. Order the bread basket ( not listed on menu we were given) for some of the best croissants we have had outside of Europe.beautiful downstairs special occasion room- wish I had an event to plan so I could use it!

Used opentable to book an impromptu Saturday brunch after having passed by this place several times. Chose outside seating on a nice day. All of the food was great. Our table was a bit wobbly and so we asked for a wedge to be put in, but the guy that put it should have been more careful as the my wife’s coffee spilled over and almost onto her. That would not have been good. Otherwise service, food and ambience was great.

NO AIR CONDITIONING. All of the doors were open to the sidewalk and it was a hot and humid night. It was very uncomfortable. If I had known that the restaurant would not be air conditioned in that heat, I would have gone somewhere else. The food was good but overall it was not a pleasant experience.

Menu was boring. I don’t think I’d be back. Sushi and Cuban Sandwiches at a French cuisine restaurant? No thanks. Not cheap. Expensive business lunch.

We sat outside on a Sunday morning. Was a perfect weather day. Food was delicious. Bloody Mary spicy, just the way I like it. It was a bit pricey, but its NYC. Place was very busy, yet service was very good. Would definitely recommend and go back next time I am in the city.

Don't live in NYC but go to Rue 57 nearly every trip. The service and food are always good. We love to sit close to the open doors or outside. French Onion soup is fantastic.

Sunday Breakfast/ Brunch. Noon reservation.


I feel this restaurant has slipped over the years. It was way too loud to carry on a conversation, a breakfast entree at 17.00 required an additional 10.00 investment for potatoes made inedible with peppers. Everything was cold when it arrived, the initial giant cup of coffee which looked so good became cold and nobody ever offered to freshen it. Worst of all, the primary ingredient of my meal seemed to be SALT. 57 used to be a mandatory stop on my visits to Manhattan. I’ll now find another venue.

This place has gone WAY down hill. Food and drinks are mediocre, service is so-so and the prices are high for the overall quality of the dining experience. This was a “go to” for many years but that’s done. Go to is now “bye-bye”.

The food is always excellent. Great staff too. So much better with outdoor seating. It gets a little noisy inside. The smaller tables in the back are crammed together, so no private conversation. Also, before we asked to be seated outside, the table we had blocked in the guests next to us and we had to move our table so they could get out. Major invonveinience and safety issue having to move your table each time a guest has to get up.

went on short notice.... booked thru open table.... were greeted and taken to our table in professional and very positive manner. Server did great job pointing out options. Service was quick....and were happy to slow down if that was out choice. Meat loaf on the menu was excellent! My bride's salmon also very good. fried artichokes were only good. Price/value was good for NYC. Place has a nice buzz to it. We enjoyed.

I do not recommend this place. Location is good for theater goers but food is mediocre and service subpar. Ordered 1/2 dozen oysters. Got one dozen. Asked for quick service due to theater schedule. Service was sluggish and waitstaff had to be reminded. Had to wolf food down. Steak was ordered medium; arrived well done.

They accommodated our request for seating near the window which is actually an operable door. They refused to open the door for us even though the door at the table next to us was open as were the doors on the other side of the main entrance. Good food and okay wait staff, didn't go out of their way to make our experience special. If you're going to market yourself as a French restaurant consider trading your Motown jazz for some classic Aznavour on the sound system. And for God's sake add Ararat Brandy to your Cognac offerings.

We went for brunch. I am sure the environment would have been better, but they had a contractor cutting stone or metal to fix an area. It was very annoying and loud to have this going on during our time there since it was a high pitched sound and I could barely hear anyone at my table speak. Everything else was very nice. The food was good and the wait staff was attentive. We would recommend the place to friends, but encourage repairs to the restaurant be made before or after hours if impacting customers experience.

We really enjoyed our meal at Rue 57! While we do feel it is a bit overpriced for the meal we had we recognize it is in a popular area and has a great atmosphere. The food tasted great- we had a salad, burger and bread pudding! Our server was excellent, checked on us regularly.
