    Delicious steak. Large range of drinks. So loud with people at nearby table enjoying too many drinks - they need to work on the noise. Also need to make sure orders are correct. We had to send back two items not prepared as we ordered. Manager very friendly yet should be for over $100 a head.

    The latest BV Grill is now the gem in midtown east. Nice locale on 3rd and 56th. Outside dining and huge bar inside add to a very relaxed experience. The staff is very attentive. The menu along with a very nice wine list makes for a wonderful dining experience.

    While the place puts up a good front...a handsome interior and what seems to be a decent wait staff...the menu does not address the business neighborhoods needs...too much of the lunch menu emulates the dinner menu...and that's why Hillstone has waiting lines and BV has tables empty...also the hamburger tasted as if it had come from a salt mine, and the baked potato had to be memorialized...

    The outdoor area was crowded but indoors there was almost no one on a summer Friday lunch. Our service was poor, especially considering how sparse the dining room was. In addition, the manager/owner? was speaking at the hostess desk about a patron that we actually knew. This was very unprofessional. Furthermore, they were referring to tables as "the Asian woman" the "Irish" table and we found this offensive.

    The good news is that the burgers and fries are fantastic. Top 10 in my book. Sadly, evertything else was fair to bad. Terrible service. Waiter mis-explained 3 dishes. I sent back the linguini w/"baby clams". They were huge and rubbery. Took 20 minutes to fire up a RARE burger. Everyone else was finished by the time my burger came back.. Perfect neighborhood location but unless they get their act together........

    Having dined at the restaurant before the Bobby Van's crew reinvented the restaurant..... I was happy to see that a few items on the menu have been retained as part of the departed Enduro....specifically the veal meatball appetizer. The dish is not to be missed and should be a part of every dining experience at the restaurant. The USDA prime cut of beef absolutely delicious.....the roasted cauliflower side...amazing....the hash browns.....spot on.... Congrats to the Bobby Van folks for taking over and reinventing and elevating... a beautifully appointed restaurant....and certain to make a success of what was an underutilized lunch and dining spot in the neighborhood!

    They easily accommodated our party of ten at a perfect rectangular table. It was 2 people on each end and 3 people on each side which made it so easy to chat with everyone. The food was delicious! I had scallops for starter and the ahi tuna for my main. We also shared a app of bacon- why not! The staff was so attentive and the manager was knowledgable and accommodating. I will definitely return!

    Food and decor were great. I'd definitely recommend trying the soft serve cheesecake dessert. The restaurant was nearly empty on a Friday night around 9:00pm/9:30pm and the service was a little slow. Would return for the food and ambiance, not for the service.

    We were treated just like any other customer which was excellent given how some restaurants treat voucher users poorly. Their small bites and appetizers had a much better variety than their entrees, but everything did taste delicious. The ribs were our favorite, as they gave you a lot and were very good.

    While the space is huge, and I suspect may present a problem long term, as small cramped places always seem to be busy, this was a wonderful dinner. We sat right away, and very much enjoyed our dinner. The sides were awesome, and we definitely over-ordered but wanted to try everything. Ribs were great, as was chicken and Tuna Tartare. Finally, our server, Sarah, was wonderful also. Highly recommend and will return often!!!!

    We had a delicious Saturday morning brunch. We were horribly late for our reservation but they sat us down straight away. We shared a jumbo crab cake for our appetizer. It was so large and tasty and perfectly cooked. My friend had the burger and a side of sausage. He wanted to lick the plate clean! I had the challah French toast with baked apple, ricotta. If there is a French toast heaven...I had arrived. The baked apple was sweet and tender. The French toast was made with a super thick piece of bread, soft and almost with the consistency of a soufflé. We used a Gilt voucher and they were kind enough to swap cocktails for some juice. I'd say it was a perfect brunch and we'll be back again.

    The location and physical setup/layout of this place is great. Owners spared NO EXPENSE (why sound system so poor?) on this place. The food and service, if improved, would make this place AMAZING. Why don't these guys do IT? The menu sounded great and some dishes were good, others just OK. The service sb more professional. Wine list was interesting.

    Though new, I've gone back to Enduro many times. I've taken my mother, I've interviewed a writer, I've met a date and, this week, I reunited with a group of former colleagues. The space is great -- it's big but cozy with all the exposed brick. It has nice lighting and very good acoustics. From appetizers (love the pork croquettes) to salads (adore the kale salad) to steaks (ribeye!) to seafood (love the lobster/crab/shrimp dishes), the menu suits any palate. And, the staff is amazing - very friendly and devoted to ensuring that you have a lovely time. There is a great bar, plus an excellent social area. It also has an outdoor area that i can't wait to try once the weather is warmer! I'm so happy Enduro moved into the neighborhood!

    We are very pleased with this new-ish restaurant. The menu is creative without being crazy, the food is attractively presented and delicious, and the service is very friendly but not intrusive. We have been 4 times now and never less than pleased. It is too bad that the entrance on 56th Street is not more prominent to attract passers-by because we want Enduro to stick around for a very long time.
