    Come here early to sit at the bar and get their burger au poivre with a martini or a glass of bordeaux. Old school NYC gem. Sweet seasoned bartenders.

    Arrived at 5:00 for the burger and was #2 in line for opening at 5:30. Excellent bar service! “You deserve this” the bartender said as he served the burger to me 😭 No detail goes by unnoticed.

    This bistro transports you right to Paris. It's all about their limited availability Au poivre burger, which is in contention for best in the city. The crab beignets and Virgin Mary complete ur brunch

    Unassuming French bistro that prob. hasn’t changed much since the ‘70’s. Lively ‘70’s soul music, delicious steak au poivre & veloute soup. You’ll be guaranteed to have a fun time.

    Classic French cooking done in a superb way. The scallops especially were a delight as well as the roasted oyster mushrooms. Space is very cozy and it’s always filled so reservations are a must.

    I know people go there for the burger (only served at the bar and it is amazing) BUT the cod fish was incredible. It comes with chorizo/potato and spinach side; sounds weird but it was amazing!

    Oysters, squash bisque, cod, and creme brûlée perfection- the steak was not as amazing as the hype. The ambiance is lively and our waiter, best ever #raouls #soho #french #bistro #foodie #delicious

    I am French and I enjoyed this proper French restaurant. Good wine, legit French food like you would have in Paris. Well executed and professional without being overly fancy.

    Cute and cozy with great decor, Raoul’s won’t disappoint. The Steak au Poivre is made medium well with a perfect peppery spice in the sauce. It’s a taste that you will be dreaming about for days.

    Steak frites are amazing, esp. with house pepper sauce. If they have potatoes aligote, go for them. Corn soup is unique & refreshing. Read this in a French accent, and don't pay the fortune teller.

    The burger is off-menu, only served at the bar, and they only serve 12 a night. By the time I got there 10 minutes before opening time, every seat at the bar was taken. But it's worth it.

    Loud, clubby and crowded—and home of one of the most authentic steak frites downtown. A straight classic (despite the untimely removal of Raoul's twin outdoor benches). [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Burger is now $27. Get there by 4:50-5 to get in on one of the 12. Kitchen opens at 5:30 so have a drink while you wait. Dip that burger. Good but overpriced

    Au Poivre Burger at the bar is the best! Limited quantity, so arrive early. Steak au Poivre is excellent, too. Chris is a fabulous host and entertainer!

    The au poivre burger is outstanding. It's off-menu, available only at the bar, and available in limited quantities (only about 12 each night). Get there by 5:30 to assure yourself one.

    They have double the number of bar burgers on weekend brunch, AND you can sit at tables for it. But only at brunch.

    Such great food and nice staff! The restaurant is small and seating is VERY tight, so be prepared to get bumped into a lot. Get the ham and truffle beignets!!

    Cozy and intimate space with an authentic bistro vibe. Service was good as well. The steak au poivre was very good (specially the fries). Tartar was too small. Wine list was overpriced.

    Try not to let the crowdedness of this place scare you off. This is a soho staple and it's amazing. Sit at the bar or get a table in the back. Order everything.

    Steak Au Poivre.. I mean like as if you had to ask. The steak tartare app is also amazing. Upside down apple cake is seasonal and served hot in a skillet with a side of icecream :)

    The off menu burger is all the rave here and for good reason. Limited quantities are made daily. Only 12 Monday to Friday at the bar. 40 for brunch on weekends at the table.

    If you are looking for an alternative to their signature steak au poivre, try the Parmesan crusted Pollock! Also, steak tartare with quail egg app was delish!

    The steak is excellent. French, and dump...in a French dumpy way (trivia fact, its the dive Bar featured on the original Law & Order...at the end of MANY of the shows. A dump, but a charming dump.
