Noisiest restaurant we have ever been to.
This spoilt the overall experience.
Food was OK not great and very expensive for what it was.
We will not be returning.

If this is the number 2 rated burger in the US I can't imagine how good number 1 must be.

Best au poivre in NYC. The skate was also delicious. Get the old fashioned or the vesper martini.

Raou's has always been one of my favorite restaurants in New York City. It never disappoints.
The food is consistently great, and the service is as well.
If you want a great fun place to eat with your friends or family, this is the place!

We were incredibly disappointed...the sound level was extremely discomforting, the table we sat at was place in such a way as our chairs were constantly being bumped by the waitstaff, and the food straight-up not really good, not even the bread, and the grilled octopus, was clearly NOT grilled, but stew, and strongly tasted of freezer burn! After so many years of hearing the glory of the place, it was frankly shocking.

This was a great brunch. The only negative was that our waiter was not very friendly. The (i'm guessing) the owner Mike and the girl by the front door made up for him though. Very sweet. Can't wait to go back. Food was outstanding with a great vibe.

Very. small cramped restaurant. Noise level was like a bomb went off in the place, impossible to hear anybody except everyone else in the place all at once. Food was just OK. Service? I kept wonder where the waiter had wandered off to.

Noise levels were up way up there!

Excellent experience from start to finish. We were seated in the banquettes in the front room but did not feel crowded or like we were at the bar. Service was near perfect -- attentive and subtle. Foie gras was outstanding, fish and vegetable dishes first-rate. Fellow diners a mix of regulars, glamour, and NYC swells. A feast for the senses and a great New York experience.

We were told upon arrival that our table had a booking two hours from our booking. We were not informed about this when we reserved. We said we would do our best. Throughout the meal, we were told several times that we had to vacate our table soon. Our check was brought without us asking, our plates were removed before everyone was done, and everything was generally rushed. This did not make for a relaxed meal.

The Chef was spot on with flavors. Unbeatable french dining at its finest. Laid-back service but overall very good. If I lived in NYC, I’d be a regular. Would certainly go back.

Amazing food and atmosphere
Service just average
We had dinner at five area restaurants in soho of the same quality
and Raouls is on the expensive side - a little over priced
I think next time i'm in NYC i will try other restaurants of the same quality
probably for less $
