I am 19 and almost a year ago I took my girlfriend here for a memorable dinner and when I say memorable I mean one of the most unforgettable nights of our lives. We left stuffed and soo happy. The food was mouth-watering, flavorful greatness second to NONE and the service ????? one word, Astounding. Staff was sooo soooo polite, professional and humble people. ( Plus they made the absolute BEST recommendations for appetizers). Entree's were spot on delicious and creme brulee for dessert.... Ahhhhhhhhhh :) . Anywho , almost a year later and guess where I am taking my lady tonight ? The one and only , Raoul's. If you've never went, I don't recommend, I beg you to go. Oh and side note.... Bill came for about $130 for 2 appetizers, 2 entrees and 1 dessert. SO WORTH EVERY PENNY.

I've been coming here a few times a year for about 8 years now and have never been disappointed. I love that you can sit down for dinner at 10:00 and the dining room and bar are still crowded and lively. I enjoy that late-night atmosphere. I was here last week and thought that my steak au poivre was cooked perfectly medium rare as always. But the standout was my date's short ribs. Really tender and flavorful. I'll be thinking about that dish for a loooong time.

Hands down, one of my favorite spots in NYC. Frisee salad, Scallops entree and Steak Frites are all wonderful. Love dining in the back, atrium room. Everyone is calm and pleasant and doesn't rush you out. I will be back time and time again.

I went to Raoul's with a friend on a saturday night 2 weeks ago. We had one of our best food experiences! Our waiter was lovely, recommending dishes and thoughfully explaining them. My date and I split an artichoke appetizer and then I ordered the Gambons in a spicey sausage risotto and my date the Sea Bass. Both of our selections were fantastic, especially my risotto. The flavors were perfect. The service was excellent and the atmosphere great. Though it was full by 9pm, you were still able to converse without screaming across the table. My friend and I stayed for well over 2 hrs and never once we rushed out the door or hurried. I cant say enough about Raoul's! The ambiance is fantastic, as if once you stepped through the door you had travelled to France.

Raouls has been around for a long time - and has managed not to go downhill. The food is very good, whether it's the perfectly done artichoke with a garlicky dijon mayo, the arugala salad or the hot foie gras appetizer, from which you move on to steak au poivre with intoxicating fries, fish, roast chicken. Prices are in the mid range. Dinner should probably run around $50-$60 with two course and some wine. Location is in the heart of Soho and you have a choice of the bar room, a glass topped garden (that allows you to walk through the kitchen) or upstairs. Having the three rooms means you can hear each other talk. It feels truly French and delivers what you want it to. Service is professional and cordial.

You'd have to work hard not to have a great time at this place. Super professional, friendly staff. Quirky, unique space adds to the vibe: a happening bar, classic banquettes, kitschy fishtank, tables in the back through the kitchen and a fortune teller upstairs. But the real action is in the kitchen. The food never misses. After you've had it once, it's nearly impossible to get anything other than the steak au poivre - it's perfection! The appetizer with snails & polenta is addicting. Not an unusually good value, prices are on the high side ($28-32 entrees), but it's worth it. The wine list is short with some good Bordeaux and Rhone selections at somewhat reasonable prices.

This is a very nice place, provided you can get through the crowd. Here's a tip: get a table upstairs. The food was excellent, as was the wine.
