Comfort Zone
    
   
Aretsky's Patroon is the perfect place for a power lunch or a relaxing dinner. Because it has so many dining options, including at the chef's table, in private dining rooms, on the rooftop or simply in the exquisite main dining room, we're here to let you know the particulars so that you can maximize your dining experience. Read below if you'd like to know a little bit more about the finer details of the restaurant.

Reservations

Aretsky's Patroon takes reservations by phone and online at OpenTable.com. Or you can click the "Make a Reservation" icon above. The restaurant accommodates walk-ins also, but it is best to reserve ahead during prime dining times if you want to ensure a table.

Seating
Seating is more than comfortable, whatever venue you choose -- whether you sit at the semicircular banquettes or in the freestanding chairs. Chairs are a generous 18 inches wide and are upholstered in a beige fabric with rivets around the back, which has a checkered pattern. The round tables within booths are 48 inches in diameter, providing plenty of room. Freestanding chairs upstairs are the same as downstairs: armless, beige and with checkerboard backs. A wall of sunset-hued leather banquette also provides seating beneath the "Grand Central" pictures and right as you come in, as you make your way toward the 46th Street side of the restaurant. High-backed chairs in the bar are also comfortable, upholstered with red leather and adorned with decorative rivets.

Atmosphere

The atmosphere at Aretsky's Patroon is nothing short of professional. All the employees are restaurant industry professionals; there are no struggling actors here. Tables are generously spaced so that you are not aware of your neighbor's conversation and so that you can have your own privacy. Service is seamless. Our sommelier, Alex, and our waitress, Gabriella, were amazingly attentive; they were there when we needed them and didn't hover at all. The manager, Andrew Kleiman, is no stranger to the hospitality industry; he was more than helpful in describing details of the restaurant, as was David, who was managing the private parties upstairs during our visit. This is truly a first-rate restaurant where the customer comes first and where the employees are happy to be there. The result is a truly inviting environment. You could do anything here, from a business lunch to a birthday celebration to an intimate anniversary. Or you could simply have an evening out during the week. It's all possible, and it's exactly the way a restaurant should be.

Restrooms

The restrooms are located in the restaurant with same-level access; additionally, there are restrooms upstairs for the private dining options.

Parking
Directly across the street is the Kinney Parking Garage. Aretsky's Patroon, however, is centrally located, so it's close to the East Side subway lines and is easily accessible by taxi and bus.

Awards
Aretsky's Patroon, with its wealth of hospitality experience -- including owner Ken Aretsky, Executive Chef Bill Peet and Manager Andrew Kleiman -- is no stranger to awards, having won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and the DiRoNA Award of Excellence, among others. Additionally, Executive Chef Bill Peet garnered a AAA Four Diamond Award for his and his wife's restaurant, La Petite Rose, plus two appearances at the James Beard House. We expect to see many more honors for this restaurant in the future!
