"We went for restaurant week winter 2016. The wait times were a little long, but the food was well worth it. The root vegetable salad was amazing, hands-down the best salad I've ever had, and I had a wagyu beef stew with extremely tender meat. Dessert was good, nothing amazing."

"Went for Restaurant week. Had the Wagyu Beef Stew. A little small, but it was phenomenal. Had passion fruit sorbet for dessert, which was amazing. Regular menu is a bit pricey, but when you're there you can see why."

"We went there for NYC restaurant week. The menu is very special (e.g. fried rabbits for appetizer and Uni pasta for entree). Besides, the wine tastes so good ( a little more expensive than other restaurant but it is really worth it). You'd give it a try if you lose appetite with cod, salmon and so on.
Besides, they also offer something very special for dinner (even regular stuff are served in a special way)."

"Had the Restaurant Week menu. Coleslaw in the Fried Rabbit with green apple rach colesslaw tasted overwhelmingly of pepper, left most of it on the plate. Carrot & Ricotta Gnocchi was burnt (supposed to taste of pistachio-carrot pesto, black truffle). So only the dessert course (sorbet) was edible. Very disappointing. My girlfriend also got the restaurant week menu, different entree but also burnt Gnocchi."

"i thought it was a restaurant week lunch,but they only had dinner for restaurant week.I had a $23 sandwich and $5 tea….it was o.k.,but not real lunch value.I was disappointed.Mr. Aretsky came to say help..that was nice.We did not get seated in the main dining area,but upstairs,which in the end was more quiet.This p;ace is good for mid-town workers,not for a ladies lunch"

"What a wonderful experience in fine dining. The reviews said midtown power lunch spot and thought there were many suits present, our visit was an excellent dining experience. We are not regulars nor power brokers, but Mr. Aretsky came by our table and asked how everything was, and we were all smiles. Kudos to him for having such a great restaurant, this is New York and the cliental is more than demanding. A few notes from the menu, crab cakes -all crab meat delicious, lobster BLT-phenomenal, the brussel sprouts tasty and dispelled all previous prejudices about brussel sprouts. Steak tartar, had just the right amount of horseradish sauce. Desserts were as good -chocolate peanut butter sinfully good, same for fried apples."

"This was my first visit to Aretsky's Patroon. I was a solo diner, and was very pleased with the attentive service and food selection. I chose this restaurant because of their unique selections (e.g., foie gras, sweetbreads). The fresh bread they serve with the meal was excellent, served in a small skillet that comes out hot, and with good quality butter. The amuse bouche was excellent as well - a small cauliflower truffle soup. I ordered both the foie gras and the sweetbreads. The foie gras torchon was paired with candied ginger, a berry compote and some kind of aspic on brioche. I enjoyed it, but would offer some improvements, such as toasting the brioche with some butter so it was not soggy from the compote and topping the foie gras with sea salt. The service was amazing and I was never without a full glass of water, someone checking in to see how my meal was, or a fresh glass of wine. My only complaint was that the clientele was quite self-important, to the point of being obnoxious (as a solo diner, you tend to hear a lot of the conversation around you), but then again, it is NYC."

"This restaurant has many attributes. The service, the menu, the ambiance. Everything worked out nicely for my holiday lunch with a friend. The waiter was friendly and we didn't feel rushed (which can happen especially during the holidays when there are many people waiting to get seated).
I will definitely go back."
