I go there probably twice a month. Service is great, food is great, and I just love the apple tart as a dessert. Only annoying thing sometimes: the level of noise in the restaurant and the proximity between tables.

Location, location! That is what they say is most important. Well this place meets that requirement. I was touring the Rockefeller Center area with my family during the Christmas holidays. Last year we had a very nice lunch here, therefore, my party of nine decided to return here again for lunch a little after 12 noon without a reservation on... More

I thought a restaurant in the midst of Rockefeller Plaza would be too touristy but what a great experience. The cocktails so tasty, the service impeccable and everyone tasted my mashed potatoes! The menu offered something for all of us and the specials of the day, they made my husband happy because it was fresh and healthy. Overall, it was... More

A very pleasant surprise. We wanted to dine by the Radio City Music Hall and this filled the bill. What surprised was the excellent service and fantastic food! We were very wrong in thinking this might turn out to to be a over-priced tourist trap with mediocre food. Wow, were we wrong! I would go back in a heart-beat. My... More

I love eating here. The food is great and so is the service. The location can't be beaten either with it being within view of the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and evening there.

Whenever I'm around the Rockefeller Center I dread looking for a restaurant as it is usually crowded with tourists! If you fancy a break from the crowds pop into Brasserie Ruhlmann and you will be pleasantly delighted by the ambiance and the delicious aroma of food. The dishes are by no means cheap but for the quality you're getting I... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
