We had been walking around for some hours, looking for a place to sit down. The umbrellas caught our eyes, and we really found an oasis! Rosewine with cookies- you have to taste it to belive it❤

Went there for lunch with friends, great day, lovely sunshine, 85F. They had lovely big umbrellas to give customers shade but they declined to open them and they were quite rude about it. Maitre D kept saying 'desole' but no further action! All staff were perspiring and people asked to change and go indoors as the ice in your drink... More

As we were big fans of La Gouloue (which unfortunately is closed) we decided to give its sister Restaurant a try. So happy we did! Very nice staff that knows their dishes. Food tastes delicious and the price is appropriate. And you cannot beat that patio. We liked it so much we came back a second time. Also because the... More

My wife and I were in NYC for the weekend and had reservations for Sunday Brunch at another establishment, but unfortunately had to cancel those plans relatively last minute for a work obligation in midtown. We found Brasserie Ruhlmann at 1:45 and made a 2 PM reservation. We are very glad we did. Service: Very attentive and professional. Our server... More

I returned to Brasserie Ruhlmann on a Saturday evening for a fourth visit with a 7:30 pm Opentable reservation. When we arrived, the hostess informed us that our table was ready. I certainly hoped so considering that only two tables in the restaurant were occupied at the time. We were seated and given menus. Five minutes later we were offered... More

This is a great, authentically French brasserie in a super location with outside seating. Food is highly recommended. One odd quirk: online booking apps will often claim that this place is fully booked but if you call or walk in they can fit you in.

Lunch for 4 was well received. Food was very good and the service was attentive but not intrusive. On a return to Rockefeller Center I would certainly return.

We had a lovely dinner here. A beautiful Art Deco restaurant in Rockefeller Center; you can almost imagine F. Scott Fitzgerald having dinner with his publisher here. It was very quiet here on a Friday night, but it is probably much busier with business lunches on weekday with all the nearby offices. I had the restaurant week menu. The portions... More

Called in for lunch on our final day in New York with no reservation. We were shown to a table quickly and given menus. The food was excellent, Dover Sole off the bone, beautifully cooked and well presented. Service was very professional and prompt. We arrived at about 12.39 but the place filled up quickly. I would advise making a... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
