Designed by partner Jean Denoyer, Orsay strikes that difficult balance of sophisticated-chic in a warm convivial atmosphere. Dark mahogany raised paneled walls meet Art Nouveau styled arches in a deep, creamy butter color. The floor is a work of art, Italian mosaic tiles in warm tones of precious metals hand laid in a beautiful fan pattern that floats in waves across the expanse of floor. Banquettes with high wood backs topped with frosted glass panels provide privacy if wanted, and the low, soft lighting emanates from Art Nouveau period chandeliers that Denoyer had custom designed. A 20-foot long zinc-topped wood bar shipped in one piece from France, and French doors that spill onto the sidewalk terrace. This elegant Parisian-style brasserie marries modern French cuisine and classic brasserie fare.

Starting August 16th we will kindly ask our guests to help us follow Metropolitan regulations regarding
COVID -19, proof of vaccination is required for all guests upon entry.

    Server could have checked up on the table 1-2 times more during the meal. Took a while for app and entree to come out. Ditto trying to get and pay check. Too many bus staff, uptrain some to take customer requests as well.

    After a long week and weekend, we needed a nice, comfortable, and good meal, and Orsay provided it with panache and excellence. It's always a favorite on the upper east side.

    wonderful food, nice comfortable ambience, noise level a little difficult but manageable for 70 year olds!, problem is service which was scattered among several wait staff and slow slow slow! Lovely wait staff but totally confused as to who ordered what etc.But delicious if you're in no hurry at all.

    This is as close to dining in France as you can get. Old world historic architectural detailed room that takes you back into time. The food is thoughtfully prepared and presented. We chose to do the wine pairing which I would recommend to compliment your meal. The mussels are divine and worthy of sopping up the sauce with a piece of bread. The only criticism is that the server brought out 4 appetizers at the same time to our small bistro table. An error that infuriated my companion. Aside from this faux pas, the meal was exceptional down to the chocolate mousse and peach tartan.

    We had a great time and dinner was delicious. Both of us opted for the $60, three-course meal and we enjoyed a bottle of champagne. Definitely go. Unpretentious atmosphere. I do wish the salad nicoise was offered on the dinner menu.

    Delicious food and attentive service. I had the restaurant week lunch and was very satisfied. My wife’s hamburger was good but overpriced. Everything else was excellent. They serve an iced tea that’s the best I’ve ever had that’s not southern sweet tea.

    Our server was incredibly rude to us. One of the women in our party of four was asking about wines, and he looked at me as if to solicit my view on what to order. When I said politely that I did not want wine (I had already ordered a cocktail), he barked "I was talking to her." He was also very slow with the check. Given the so-so but pricey food and the poor service, I do not plan to return to Orsay.

    We decided to try Orsay for restaurant week, and we weren’t disappointed. The special menu gave us excellent choices- my friend had the mussels and I the chicken. Both were very tasty and generous. With the prix fixed menu we also got wonderful appetizers…a tartin with ricotta and figs for me and gazpacho for my friend. We opted for the included dessert as well, and the peach tart was delightful. Our waiter and busboy, Victor, were a pleasure. Looking forward to going back!

    Overpriced and mediocre. The Tuesday duck special tasted like Pate, it was horrible. The Canard Moulard was quite good. But this kind of discrepancy between two duck dishes is unforgivable for the price points at this restaurant. Outdoor seating was the only redeeming quality and the service was good

    I’m pretty sure the Dover sole my son had was a petrale sole…still a good fish but not the same. I also found a hair in my French onion soup. I had the roasted chicken that was undercooked with red at the bone. Good service but a little perfunctory.

    This used to be one of my favorite Restaurants. I had even dined there about a year ago after Covid and it was OK not great. Last night the food was horrible. The service was fine the ambience is fine but the food was not worth it and I won’t be going back which makes me very sad because I’ve been going for many years

    To celebrate a birthday, the ambiance was wonderful and the food sublime. My group partook of several specials that lived up to their hype. The service was attentive and the hosts made you feel most welcome. This was a wonderful dining experience in a room that transported one to Paris as the decor was quite authentic and reminiscent of that remarkable city.
