    The service started out extremely well, but throughout dinner as the restaurant filled up, the service quality died down a little. Overall good experience and appreciated the fact that they seated us 20 minutes earlier than our reservation time.

    In the Galleria (Saks) on 2nd level. Live music at times - piano player or jazz group. Food was nicely presented and veggies on side of main course reminiscent of predecessor, Ruggles.

    Food was great in flavor, portion, and plating. Server was attentive. Pianist was talented and friendly. Enjoyed the view looking out of the wall of glass from the second floor of Saks. Deducted two stars from Service for the terrible Hostesses. Our party of two arrived separately. My friend came first and was seated. I came 10 minutes after, and was told no other single guest had entered before me, and that she didn't have my reservation. I insisted I had made one, and the second hostess found it. I waited at the front for 15 minutes while trying to contact my friend. We finally got through on the phone to find out she had been seated at table waiting for me, and I was NOT seated and waiting for her! No thanks to the terrible hostesses.

    I really enjoyed my food at 5115 and I think the restaurant has a good ambiance and is quiet enought for lunch meetings, which is great. However, on my most recent visit I was unimpressed with the level of service. I had to literally wave down our waiter a few times for various things, including the check. I am now going to seriously consider whether or not I will dine at 5115 again for lunch.

    This was a great dinning experience. The saxophonist was awesome! Food was delicious especially the white chocolate bread pudding. My only complaint was open table offered only one time slot, 6:00, when the restaurant had plenty of available table. Good thing I decided to call befor picking another restaurant.

    I was disappointed with our waiter Jorge. From the minute we got there he never smiled, seemed annoyed, when we asked for something he wouldn't bring it and it just wasn't anything I am used to from Saks. He knew he was getting the automatic 20% (which I thought was illegal) then we got charge gratuity on the 20% which I did not understand at all. We had to ask for water refills as that was not happening and we were 8 at the table and not more than one bread basket. What happened? We also had a table next to us that was empty and I tried to get his attention to get it for us to avoid sitting on each other and he never responded. He was very out of tune with this table that spent over $600. Sad and I wouldn't recommend.

    my entree was fish but when it came out it smelled "fishy" which means the fish was not fresh so I sent it back & ordered the Chicken with shrimp & plantain chips, that was a great dish.

    I was looking for a nice quite place to take my parents for their 61st anniversary. The staff at 51fifteen made the event so special and romantic. The piano player even played one of the songs that my parents had at their wedding. The food was fabulous and well plated. We will most certainly return.

    Came here for brunch during HRW with my dad. We each ordered different menu items so we can try as much as possible and it was all delicious. Standout items were sausage, berry crepes, and lemon tart. Also, they had a jazz band playing which created a fun ambiance. Definitely would come back.

    I chose 51fifteen due to having gone there previously for a special occasion with my spouse. We had a wonderful time then and I felt this would be just as special seeing she enjoyed it for the previous special occasion years prior. I also looked at the menu and they were serving from a special dinner menu for restaurants week. We had a good time but not a great time as before. Had asked to make it special due to the occasion when making our reservations online but was seated in among others with loud conversations. So it was hardly romantic. Needless to say I was a bit disappointed.

    Maybe I'm not familiar with Saks, but I would have never guess there'd be a restaurant inside. The food was fantastic, had a great wine selection, and service was impeccable. There's not much inside to absorb noise, so if it's crowded or if there are any large parties, the noise level escalates quickly. We were there for HRW, so a thumbs up for the grilled oysters, lobster arancini, flank steak, and a double thumbs up to the grilled scallops. The desserts were "just" desserts, but still a fine finish to the meal.

    For a 5 star restaurant I expected alot more. It was way to loud that it echo. The service was just ok. The food didn't care for it. Then when the store closes you have to walk all around to get to the garage because they close that entrance. Won't be going back.

    The brunch menu was very good - amazingly, it was the muffins in the bread basket that were the favorite food for the meal. The rest was also wonderful. The decor is iexceptional - somewhat reminiscent of the Turrell wall at the Museum of Fine Art. There was a jazz band for brunch - that was an unexpected treat. Of course, that translates to a louder atmosphere. The only downside was that our server appeared a bit overwhelmed by the crowd and was somewhat slow with service.

    this was our first time here and we came to try HRW. The menu for HRW brunch was superb with different selections for different tastes. the service and decor was fancy and elegant. the dishes were all excellent. I would definitely come back and try the regular menu. they were very accommodating with our babies but not the place to bring kids.

    We went there for brunch. Our waiter was fantastic... his enthusiasm for the food was contagious... because of him, we couldn't help but be excited for the dishes that were about to be brought out. And for good reason too! The food was perfect... not too heavy on the seasonings but lots of flavor. There was live music. The restaurant is beautiful. My only "complaint" is there is just too many tables, it was difficult to maneauver around to the tables towards the back where we sat... but it's not even a true complaint cause I only had to walk through the maze of chairs a total of two times... once to get to the table and once to leave the restaurant after our check was settled. I was definitely impressed with the restaurant and our service.

The bacon wrapped around the steak was a cherry on top! Bottomless mimosas were my favorite part of the meal! The waiter was very attentive and refilled our mimosas without any wait.

We chose to go when they had an international night and this was a great decision. The entertainment was excellent, the group Mango Punch was in top form and had the majority of people up and dancing. We will be back.
