    Very expensive

    Beware...$55 price fixe is available only between 5-6PM. We were seated in the dining room at 6:15 and were not offered the $55 price fixe. Our price fixe was $89. The food was very good although very small portions except for dessert which was large as it came with complementary doughnuts and petit fores (very good). The main complaint was the maitre 'd. He hovered and rushed us saying we had to hurry to get out in time for an 8PM show. We were not in a rush. He was rushing us; very expensive

    Beautiful but small portions

    Met folks there for business last night. We ate at a large table in the bar area with a really great window view. Service was good and the place is beautiful. Appetizers were delicious as was my dinner, which was the size of my appetizer! Although the food is of high quality, it is expensive and you can walk out hungry. All in all a great meeting place to meet for appetizers and drinks. I would not have dinner there again.

    Fantastic!

    Conveniently located near times square, so it's perfect before a show for a fabulous meal. There are few restaurants in the theater district worth talking about. Service was wonderful and the food amazing. A must do!

    Great environment but that's all!

    We were on a Corporate tab so weren't very concerned about the price. I say that the wine list was amazing and thought the price was reasonable so no issues with that at all. Food was good but nothing spectacular, my main course was excellent but my appetizer was cold (was supposed to be fried instead). What irritated me most was the service from our waitress. I have never experienced this before and so I was very shocked with her rude behavior (for such a fine dining restaurant). We ordered five bottles of wine (for 7 people) for about $1400 a total! After we paid the bill she felt we didn't tip her enough (we didn't give her 20% tip for the wine -- that's not the etiquette and paying her $280 would be ridiculous for her to just bring the bottles to us since we didn't her ask for advice on the wine). After we were done we wanted to order another bottle of wine. She saw me call her and rolled her eyes -- extremely unprofessional for a restaurant of this caliber! I was totally awed by her behavior and decided to write this review on the same night as our dinner. Seriously after spending 2K for 7 people we get this sort of treatment -- this is abhorable. I would let it slip if the food was great but that wasn't the case either. I am extremely disappointed by this place! I will never spend my corporate dinner at this place again. By the way, this is my first negative review for any restaurant in NY, so you can imagine how much of a disstate I have for this place

    If only it were located someplace else!

    My sister and i had a wonderful lunch at Aureole this past Monday We each had an appetizer, a salad and an entree. The foie terrine was delicious, the skate with fregola and black olives and the cod were both perfectly cooked and our waiter could not have been more attentive. I only wish Aureole were locate outside of the Times Square area.

    Over hyped and Overpriced

    Four of us went to the new location for a pre Broadway show dinner . We oredered the pre show fixed price dinner. Way overpriced ($85) for what you received, & the food was only average. The bright spot of the evening was our waiter - he was excellent. We won't be going back anytime soon.

    Average food. Slow service.

    This place is trying too hard. The food isn't good enough to drag it out for a 3 hour meal. When they were on the East side, I swore I wouldn't go back. Ditto for the new location -- but its gotten worse! Has anyone realized there is a recession on? There are a lot better restaurants at this level in New York.
