    Very cool ambiance, almost felt like an old smokers lounge with all the velvet and the low lighting. Very quiet. Great food and delicious drinks, but the steak was $36, a bit pricy for what was received.

    The food at Cherry is an art form. Not only does it sound and look delicious, it tastes amazingly delicious. The presentation is beautiful, the service is impeccable and the taste is worth coming back to, over and over again. Thank you for such a delicious and creative meal!

    We went there with a Gilt voucher (Omakase Dinner for Two) and were really excited to try it out but I have to say we were extremely disappointed. Appetizers were just ok and the sushi was so bad. The fish was so smelly and tasted really bad. Save your money and go to another place... I am glad we had a voucher but even with the voucher this place was so overpriced considering how bad the food was... If you do go there go for drinks since they have a big selection of Sake. Also the Banana Tarte Tatin was good.

    Cherry should be praised for its sexy ambiance and great food. Everything is done with a delicate hand and the service is equally refined. I thoroughly enjoyed the omakase dinner with my significant other.

    From the moment we got to Cherry everything was top shelf. Todd at the bar mixed up great house cocktails--the Noissette was fantastic and my wife loved the Bordello. Then the food was unique without being over the top. Every bite was a burst of varied flavors blending to perfection. The tuna tart was some of the best tuna I've had in recent memory. The capper was the chocolate mousse and banana tart at the end of the meal. Just a great spot for a wonderful evening out.

    Extraordinary food served in a jewel box of a restaurant. Staff could not be more informed or gracious. Try the tuna tarte, the fois gras gyoza, the must sea bass. Green lava cake with red bean ice cream is heavenly. A wonderful experience all around.

    I love this place, and let's start with the first impression when you come down the stairs. It was dark and everything was red. My date was very impress. Of course it was going to be pricy but It was worth it. The bar tenders offer a great service!! Te come to any special night!!!

    The tuna tarts with truffle oil and the crispy shrimp with almonds are fantastic appetizers. The miso bass is delicious and velvety in texture and our sushi selection was diverse and delicious. The green tea cake with red bean ice cream is one of the best desserts I have ever had. I could have easily had a couple of those by myself. Can't wait to go back.

    The staff is pretty sure they're working in a way cool place, but the problem is, the food runs from fair to terrible & you have to pay a lot for it. I ordered a grilled sardine special that was covered with so many things that it basically tasted like nothing. But worse, i also ordered a smoked trout & horseradish dish that was truly inedible, so of course I didn't eat it. The staff came to clear the plates & didn't ask a word about why it was all still there-- they just cleared it away and brought dessert menus without asking. We passed and went elsewhere. You should too...

    This was my second dinner @ Cherry & was extremely pleased again. No waits, reservations taken seriously, I like that. Great food & eclectic mixtures of flavor, texture, color & styles are served at good timing. No rush out which is very nice. Fun cocktails w/delish ingredients to change it up a bit. Great atmosphere & decor make it full circle for me. Overall, I would highly recommend and return myself on a regular basis.

    Restraunt was chic and fun. But the service had stupid airs to it. Saying there is no table when there are many open in the bar which are full service and cannot be sat at by bar patrons but the hosts don't sit you at. Anyways enjoyed it, good food and ambiance.

    Love this place!!! Food is to die for (although pricey), music is at the perfect volume so you can hear it but can also have a conversation at the table, decor is spectacular, and drinks are amazing! The seats were super comfortable which made it seem like a lounge type place and I wanted to stay all night! Super trendy. Good for a girls night out or a date.
