    I went there for brunch on Sunday. The food was ok but the ambiance was soooo fun! There were performances and a Dj. I would definitely reccomend this place.

    I was so excited to visit this spot being that I heard so many great things about it. When we arrived I was truly impressed by the look and the ambiance. However, are waiter took a very long time to introduce himself. Our waiter was very inattentive and our food and drinks took way too long to come to our table. Just on the service alone I would not return.

    The Tavern burger was soooooo delicious and the fries I could not get enough of. The place looks beautiful but felt awkward like it was nestled next to the hotel check-in. Feels cramped. However it does not deter us from enjoying the outdoor lounging area.

    And drinks ofcourse. With such an extensive all you can eat menu and choice of bottomless mimosas, or sangrias, Yotel is a great, high energy place to spend an afternoon with the gals!

    I had a pre-theater dinner here (and I was the only diner, no reservations were necessary). I like that they offered small plates so that I could taste a couple different things without ordering a large quantity of food. I had the beet/burrata salad and the New Orleans shrimp. Both were delicious and if I were to return, I would order the exact same thing. I even got a try a new wine. My server was helpful with my decisions. Quick, quiet service.

    This was a great option for a bottomless brunch in NYC. We had 2 hours at the table and could order as much food and drink as we wanted. The food is not outstanding, but is served in small plates so you can graze while you drink mimosas and bloody marys. The drinks are not strong though. So we actually ordered glasses of prosecco in addition. super fun place to head with a group of gals.

    We booked this leased on internet reviews saying it was good for a boozy brunch. Don't waste your money. Yes it is all you can eat. But do you want to eat mediocre food? The all you can drink is even by the servers admission watered down. Seriously. Save your money. Instead head to Calle Ocho for an amazing brunch experience. We did

    Wow, has this place has changed since my last visit, which was over 4 months ago. Drinks were watered down, they serve you in plastic cups now, they no longer leave a pitcher on the table for refills. It was just entirely a difference energy and experience. Not my favorite brunch spot in NYC any longer. Also there was a section with kids playing a few feet from the bar?! Are you serious?!

    Although the food was good I found the "hot food " was not hot at all. Such as the sliders, the meatballs and the general tso chicken. It seems as though they were all prior made. Also, at the time I made my reservations it was advertised that the brunch was $40, however, while there it was $45.

    Dined on 6/28/2014
    I went here for my birthday brunch celebration with 7 friends and I called in advance to request a seat on the outdoor terrace. When I arrived early they said the terrace would be a 15 minute wait but when I returned at the start of my reservation I was told that the wait was now an hour and a half. When I tried to get a seat inside they tried to put me near the kitchen which I immediately objected to and was told that the nicer indoor seats were only for reservations which I of course objected to since I made a reservation a month and a half in advance. The restaurant needs to do a better job of managing reservations but overall a fun birthday brunch.

    Amazing food, great atmosphere, and plenty of drinks to go around. Family style plates are brought out 6 at a time for the table. The restaurant is labeled as Asian, but there is truly something for everyone here including French Toast!!

    We came here for a mother's day brunch, so in our party there were 4 adults and 2 children, a 13 year old and a 7 year old. Even though this isn't a kid friendly place, the kids surprisingly liked it asked when we will return to try dinner. We actually arrived earlier than our reservation, the staffs were very friendly and sat us right away and the waiter was attentive. I recommend this place if you have a special occasion to celebrate with unlimited food and drinks.

    This is one of my regular spots - love the tapas style menu and the different areas for dining, drinking & dancing... bring a lot of my out-of-towners here especially since the hotel itself is very cool. I don't have any complaints really except that the service can sometimes be a hit or a miss. Sometimes the service has been outstanding and sometimes we've had to flag the waitor more times than necessary to get service. Regardless, the place itself makes up for it...

    The 3 stars are solely for the food. Asian-fusion cuisine was decent, but the service was horrible. There were only a few customers the night we went and it took 40 minutes to get us our first dish. Not worth it as a restaurant, but good bar scene because of their outdoor terrace.

    Cool seating in the main area but service was spotty: sometimes we were overwhelmed with conversation and water refills but other times we had to flag people down. We were told the happy hour specials were only available if you ordered from the bar, which seemed silly since we wanted to sit and eat too.

    Unusual fare of asian tapas! and it works! small plates allow you to try many different offerings. Between 2 people, we had about 8 plates and it was just right. We recommend trying the ramen! Service was attentive and prompt. Our server is knowledgeable and can help you out in choosing the dishes. Ambiance is asian hip yet comfortable.
