    so far...

    My best friend is a frequent visitor to Rue 57 living just around the block. Having heard the rave reviews I decided to join her for brunch on a Sunday. Apparently we get earlier where I come from than the New Yorkers because she and her friends were oblivious to the time brunch starts (11:30) and the time you can order alcohol on a Sunday in NYC (12:00). That being said once the time changed the waiter finally let us look at the brunch menu. I had the butter lettuce salad which was very good but could have used a few more slices of pear. My friends had the beet salad which was to die for and I don't even eat beets. The bus boys cleared some plates while people were still eating and tried to leave the dirty silverware although the waiter rectified that situation eventually. The restaurant was nice and breezy and they didn't rush us or make us wait too long though it was very crowded we sat right down at 11:15. I took my cue from my friends and had the eggs benedict which were to die for!. Their variation with bernaise and crossaints was amazing!. The poached egg was perfectly done. Apparently next time I go to NYC I need to have dinner there. I would recommend it for the variety and local and the service was ok. Nice mimosas as well.

    fast food french

    I have to say I have passed this restaurant frequently and it is always full, so I finally stopped by to see what all the fuss is. Highly underwhelmed. Service and food average while prices above average. Atmosphere is loud and highly unoriginal. I had steak au poivre and my husband had the chilean sea bass. My steak cognac sauce tasted store bought and the meat was not very tender. His fish had rice that tasted old and teh sauce was really sour. Save your money and find a real good french restuarant in NY there are so many more to choose from.

    Not for the locals

    Stopped by here for brunch on my way to the park. Decided to give it a try since it looked pretty hoppin' and the menu was decent. Anyway, got seated in the main traffic area between the kitchen and the rest of the restaurant - asked to move to a less busy area, which the waitress was friendly with accomodating the request. I immediately knew that I had made a bad choice as I watched garbage bags being brought out from the kitchen through the dining area to the sidewalk (around 12 in the afternoon when the restaurant was full.) Got the eggs benedict - the eggs being poached correctly was just about the only thing right about the meal. The food was served luke-warm, almost cold. But they did deliver it pretty fast, so it leads me to believe they had these plated up already and it was sitting under a heat lamp. The sauce was basically congealed already and the croissant was burnt. Taste-wise, edible but certainly not tasty. Needless to say, I won't be going back here. This restaurant will probably be in business for a great while since it caters to unsuspecting tourists. What a waste of prime restaurant real estate.

    Don't Bother

    I went for breakfast. The decor is very nice. That said, the only thing I liked was the water. Trust me. All hype, no substance.

    We had a great time at Rue 57!

    Like the title says me and my girlfriend dined there this past Friday and really enjoyed ourselves. For appetizers we shared the popcorn shrimp and a caesar salad, the shrimp were kick butt! We had the Rue 57 Sushi Platter for two as our main course and it was great, really fresh sushi. For dessert we went for the sorbet, not bad. Can't wait to go back. P.S. They also have Blue Point beer, which is one of my favorite, I highly recommend you try it if you are a person who likes flavorful beers.

    Poor food, ok service.

    My girlfriend and I went to Rue on a Saturday night at 8:00p.m. It's a peak time and they were churning out subpar food with low quality service. First we were served cold sour bread. Then a waitor decided to not ask but demand very rudely that my girlfriend move her purse to help increase "waitor walk flow." He could of asked politely. But then comes the food. I was charged $15 for four, yes 4 small dry and very old shrimp. They literally were no where even close to the size of tiger shrimp. It tasted like they just threw it in a microwave and it was the most unfresh fish i've had since I was 5 years old eating fish sticks, but at least they weren't $15 back then. They were dry and old and when I asked our waitress why there were only 4 tiny shrimp on this huge platter she just pretended they were "Jumbo" even though she never saw the shrimp. Then It gets worse. I ordered a burger and fries. How can you mess that up? A 16 yr old kid at McDonalds gets it right but these guys give me a well done burger when I asked for medium rare and they serve with it some of the worst Frites I've ever had. After that my girlfriend gets a nice dish of undercooked rigatoni. The waitress never looked/cared/bothered to ask how everything was. She just didn't care. Which is why even though we have been there before, we will never return and try to dissuade anyone from going there ever again.

    magic spring evening

    Had an absolutely magical spring night at Rue 57. Great music, beautiful flowers and our waiter Steven was the funniest and most competent waiter I have ever had. I highly recommend the seared tuna and my wife loved the filet mignon. Thank you Steven for such a good time.
