Great service! Pretty outdoor seating. Amazing
I wntertain ans also go with my family every week.
considering this is outide dining it was pretty good. The service was excellent,
menu very small choices but the food is always good
Great restaurant in this time with proper distancing.
Always a quality experience with great wine choices and excellent food. The steak tartare is beyond!
Wonderful menu... had the duck confit salad! Really enjoyed our brunch!
The food was very good, and the staff very attentive. The prices are on the high side, especially for wines, but overall, the experience was a success.
Orsay has done a really nice job of expanding their outside venue, lined with wonderful flower holders/dividers, it almost feels like you are eating in Paris or Amsterdam at an outdoor café. I hope they get some heaters for the winter so we can continue being outside. The service and the food was very good starting with the bread and continuing on to the hamburger and duck salad that we ordered
Always great staff and cuisine.
Unfailingly delicious tuna tartar, and wonderful wine. Steak pretty good, too. We were a party of five and had a lovely evening. Our server was excellent - friendly, helpful and attentive. Everything is so hard for restaurants at the moment, but I'm glad we chose Orsay - they've doing a fine job with good outdoor space, and we will come again.
Love the Oyster! very attentive service and Covid safe!
It was lovely to sit outside. The service was wonderful and the food was very good.
Orsay was a restaurant I loved going to before the pandemic. But I will wait until the pandemic passes to return . These restaurants that think dining on avenues in NYC next to traffic is a pleasant experience are delusional. Who wants a bite of bavette followed by a whiff of exhaust from a truck 18 inches away . Orsay even had lots of table on the side street empty that for some reason were not available to us even though we have gone there regularly and even gave them some $ when the pandemic started . I know they are struggling but fill up the side street first then warn diners the exhaust may be a little much on Lex . As always the food was delicious though a little less brisk in service which I understand considering ..
delicious food- the steak and salmon were fabulous! Nice outdoor dining set up
Great food but service could have been much better. Very unfortunate.
First rate service and quality
The quality of food in Orsay today is seriously lower than previously.
Spent an elongated time with a friend for lunch. Great food and service. Never rushed. Very enjoyable time.
I had a special Porchetta on a bed of green lentils with figs and huckleberries. Very rich but delicious. Maitre'd was very accommodating and moved our table to a better location at our request. We had a lovely lunch. Thank you.
A birthday dinner
Outside dining works well.
It was lovely. We were very happy with our table, service and food. The staff were charming to us. I had roasted chicken and it was plentiful.
Orsay has taken every precaution in the fight against Covid to make their diners feel comfortable. Food was delicious and service was excellent.
Superb service, as always!’
Orsay has created a terrific ambiance outdoors from Lexington Avenue around the corner to E. 75th Street. The halibut is a lovely well constructed dish, with unique features such as a well matched pesto, and a smattering of carrots, green beans, and small artichoke hearts. The escargot were great and the bread a very high quality. The floating island dessert was exceptional. Eating outdoors at Orsay during Covid-19 was a treat.
Our experience was very pleasant and the food was delicious.
It is unfair to ask for an honest review when we are dining in the street under a temporary cover.
Dining during a very warm evening and the icing on the cake was a $300 check. As to the quality of the food, only one of the four entrees was on the mark. My burger was overcooked as was the salmon and the short rib pasta dish was dry and needed olive oil
All in all, a very disappointing evening
Orsay did a great job considering Covid rules. Only request is that all tables have some lights. If not on veranda of restaurant lighting was missing. Had to keep my cell phone light on to see my dinner. Thank you!
The only problem is that because of COVID-19 we had to sit on Lexington Avenue. If I had known, I would have requested 75th Street seating.
Given all the restrictions in today's restaurant world, Orsay does an incredible job. Service and food was excellent.
The perfect bistro. Excellent food and wine. Perfect bread. Sublime service. Paying careful attention to Covid concerns. A bit of Paris on Lex and 75th.
Great staff very attentive and always consistent with the quality
Great for a date or everyday dinning
Great outdoor space
Great restaurant with terrific attention to proper seating "distancing." Beautiful setting with plants all around. Service was great. Food was tasty and the presentation of drinks and food was elegant. A bit pricey but it is New York.
Will definitely go back.
Delicious food and great service. Busboys who are rarely recognized are some of the best service providers in the city.
Very safe, very comfortable -tables spread apart
made you feel like you could really enjoy your lunch without worrying
first restaurant I’ve been to since March 13.
Always delicious as well! Tiger shrimp with tabouli was delicious
delicious steak and cute outdoor dining- would never know you were in the middle of the city
Always a pleasure to dine here... the outdoor dining was like being at a Bistro in Paris. wonderful food, attentive but not hovering service... they remember EVERYTHING... I rejoice that they have responded so creatively to the challenge of The Virus against all odds!! every +Blessing for continued success...
Great service and food as always. Socially distanced. Masks. All was great.
Doing well during pandemic. Careful service nice food, and good spacing.
