Review of Raclette NYC

Review of Raclette NYC

The Raclette NYC, located at 511 E 12th Street, is definitely a restaurant you should add to your bucket list of restaurants to visit while in New York City!

I made the reservation a month in advance, since we would be visiting during Mother’s Day weekend. Making a reservation is a “must”, because the place can get packed and they don’t have a lot of tables. Our reservation was for 6:15 and we were seated at 6:15! I love service like this, because there’s nothing like making a reservation and still having to wait an additional 20-30 minutes! So, this was a plus!

The server was very friendly and explained everything on the menu – we ended up ordering the Parisienne (marinated skirt steak, sauteed mushrooms, asparagus, and potatoes) the Burger (sirloin patty with caramelized onions), and the Mediterranee (roasted asparagus, cherry tomatoes, and baguettes).

Since we ordered from the Raclettes, we each got to pick a cheese to top our dishes. My girls chose the Classic Thermalized for the Burger and the Mediterranee. My girls are 12 and 14, so they played it safe by choosing the Classic Thermalized. And for the Parisienne, my husband chose the Potato and I chose the Onion. I chose the Onion, because I was having the marinated skirt steak, so I figured what would be a better topping than onions. And boy was I correct, it was definitely an excellent choice!

The cheese show was just like we expected, after watching numerous videos on Facebook and Instagram. They definitely give you more than enough cheese to enjoy with your meal.

The Parisienne was very tasty. The skirt steak is tender, marinated, and well seasoned. The potatoes were also quite tasty. And, if you’re a fan of asparagus, like I am, they were cooked to perfection!

… and then there was dessert

After dinner, we ordered two of their banana cheesecakes … I must say, they were also very good!

On a scale from 1 to 10, I would definitely give the Raclette a 10. Their service is exceptional and their food is phenomenal! I look forward to visiting them again in the summer!
