Wonderful brunch experience. Yes, the burger au poivre is worth it. Order and you will not be disappointed. Fresh oysters and perfect cocktails. Warm and energetic staff all in a NYC classic. Will be back

A frustrating and disappointing evening at a bistro I have frequented whenever in nyc fir 30 years. My dining friend ordered the steak and just did not care for it...and asked to order another meal. Well then the inquisition starts with the manager “explaining” that the steak was prepared as ordered and we had to pay for it. The manager was condescending and pompous. I have never encountered a restaurant tribunal before...all at an establishment I have always loved.

Great ambiance, excellent service, food was fabulous - steak tartare a good portion and very tasty, grilled octopus perfect, steak poivre delicious if not a little over priced at $52.

I asked my wife where she wanted to celebrate our 49th anniversary. She immediately answered Raoul’s. We ate there before and were so impressed. The staff is so friendly and professional. The food is superb. This time we had the steaks. They were marvelous.

One of our most favorite restaurants in the city for many many years. Eddie the maitre d is always courteous, professional and friendly. Service is great - Alex and Jennifer waiter/waitress and Franco at the bar are fantastic. Food is always good, but we miss the artichoke.

The atmosphere, the vibe and the culture here is unmatched. One always feels super comfortable and happy at Raoul's.

I think this may well become our new Christmas Eve dining destination. Yes, it was that fantastic even with the unexpected wait time. We had a reservation for 7pm and they were not able to sit us at that time. However, we were able to sit at the bar, have some bubbly, chips and festive conversations with everyone around us. We ended up dining at the bar as the bartender was lovely and we could enjoy entire menu. Watercress salad, oysters, more bubbly, the best ever steak au poivre and Ridge Zinfandel were all FANTASTIC! Most definitely a merry night.

This Soho gem has been around forever and seems to get better with age. The only downside for patrons is that everyone else feels the same way so that dinners, etc. can get a bit crowded and if you don't reserve in advance you will be sadly disappointed. The menu is somewhat limited and there is usually one special to offer on the traditional French bill of fare. The frisee salad and duck breast main course are to die for. Fish is done perfectly and served with sauces applied at the table as with the scallops. The lively bar scene does not intrude on the diners in the rear of the restaurant, however this could be an issue if you have a table up front. If you are near the door you could be boxed in by diners waiting for tables. Service is spot on and the friendly wait staff is more than accommodating. If you want to dine in Soho and experience a part of the past that has pretty much disappeared in that neighborhood, then get yourself there. Good food, no pretensions, friendly staff and reasonable prices.

Excellent food and amazing service. Every single person we interacted with was beyond awesome. We ordered the burger and some appetizers, all of which tasted delish! Atmosphere is very warm and welcoming which is why we keep returning, especially for our birthdays or other important occasions. Highly recommend Raouls.

After a lifetime of living NYC always passing But never the right time to go...
We were utterly impressed with a Pre- theater dinner. The food was excellent and reminded my husband and myself of the days when French restaurants were ubiquitous in the City.
So glad we don’t have to go to La Grenouille to get wonderful food and service.
The booth is best for us. We’ll always request that when we come again and again
