The Astor Court is a calm oasis to take breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. A harpist provides ambiance for guests Wednesday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. In the evening, The Astor Court is brimming with activity. Guests can take dinner in the dining room or enjoy an aperitif in the Petit Salon while enjoying a live pianist Wednesday through Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

As the main restaurant in a luxury hotel in Midtown Manhattan, The Astor Court in The St. Regis New York attracts an international clientele. You’ll see a mix of regulars and hotel guests at the restaurant just off the main lobby, all just looking for a good meal. You might see businessmen conducting breakfast meetings, ladies lunching or hotel guests having dinner. We noticed several patrons dining alone—this spot lends itself well to that. It’s the perfect place to grab a quick bite or to come in with a small group. The Astor Court manages to maintain a quiet hum, the gentle murmur of conversations among friends and family. Expect impeccable service and style — there’s an old-school charm that exists in The Astor Court and the nearby King Cole Bar.
