Indifferent service, way overpriced, and you can make it better at home. Lobster roll had only a few chunks of sweet lobster, per half roll; its warm, and has a curry mustard flavor to it. The croque monsieur looks way better than it tastes. Halfway through and you'll realize its a waste of callories ot go any further. OH, and the bloody mary - think a notch below your local bowling alley bar

First time trying the restaurant. Accomplished exactly what Restaurant Week is supposed to do - got me in the door at a lower price point to try the restaurant. Thought the choices were very nice. Very attentive service. The four of us loved the atmosphere and the food.

I was there for dinner. Service beautiful, but too much. One question per 5 min is enough. Restaurant week. Soup, salmon, crepes. Average. Not worth. Never again. So much more oportunities.

Came on a weekday for lunch. Waiter was incredibly rude, he had a hard time understanding our order (cheese, soups, and french fries) and gave us a dirty look when we stated that our entrees would be the soups. Asked for sherry on the side for lobster bisque, he could not understand what I meant. Eventually the manager came, did understand what I meant, but instead of sherry, I was brought a sherry vinaigrette that would have rendered my bisque inedible had I not tasted it before pouring any in. My friend was brought the wrong dish and then had to wait 20 minutes for her correct soup to come out after the waiter gave us another dirty look and insisted she had also ordered the bisque (which she had not). After all the trouble, the food was average. I will never ever go back and I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I've been to Ruhlmann for lunches and dinner recently and it seems they have worked out the kinks that came up earlier in the year. I found the service to be good - no one whisked away my food or rushed us. The wait staff has not steered me wrong in wine or food recommendations. The food is just delicious - the frisee salad with lardons and that egg is the best. I've had business lunches and a lovely dinner and find that I'm looking for an excuse to come back.

Start with a really obtrusive waitress. Every few minutes "Are you ready to order?" We hadn't even opened our menus (she knew this because she was hovering). Then, whisking away 1/4 full wineglasses. We grasped our glasses when a hand reached over our shoulders. Food:This is the first time that I've ever had bad short ribs! Others who had soup found it cold. Imagine, dry Kobe beef. The cookie plate at $12 looks like it came out of a box of Entenman's. The place was not busy about 1/3 full. It seemed like the cook and the staff wanted to go home early. Skip Ruhlmann.

Saturday Lunch on a cold day: To start, Tuna Tartare. While expecting a usual good one...I had this INCREDIBLE white truffle oil tuna tartare with a touch of avocado it has been such a revelation, an amazing experience, I almost fell off the banquette...! I just could not get enought and then could not shut up about it. While still in shock I registered to menupages because the world has to know about it. Serious! Entree: Pot au Feu (No American can say it correctly by the way...ha ha!!) This is a vey rustic, traditionnal French dish. The beef was tender and moist w/ simple veggies. The secret: do add some sea salt served on the side...VA VA VOOM. Merci!
