  • "Staff was very friendly, attentive and professional. A slower explanation of the tasting menu would have been great - but otherwise - great job. The food was ah-mazing. We did not feel rushed to finish our meal. We had a great time"

  • "My wife and I love this place! Second time dining, second great meal. Very inventive menu items, and a great value at $40 prix fix for 4 courses. The chef, Elliot, is a genius with pasta."

  • "A tasting menu with wine pairing is a nice way to enjoy a meal without too much thought. The reasonable price for both made this a very nice experience overall. The food was tasty. The options were there to satisfy different tastes of the diners. The service was great, without a rushed feeling at all. My only wish was that the server would have spent a bit more time explaining each course and its wine."

  • "We booked this reservation to celebrate a birthday on Thursday night. The tasting menu for the week was great. We like the fact you have an option for each course and the optional wine pairing makes it easy for a group. Every course was great and tasty. Service was great and personable. The corn ravioli was my favorite offering this week. Dessert options were really good. Carmel sundae was a favorite at the table. We will coming back. A great outing with good surprises to eat and keeping this in mind for a night out in the future!"

  • "G is known as a sandwich shop, but also is a very good organized menu in the evenings--consisting of appetizer, pasta, fish or meat, and dessert--all for $40. On this evening we had a really nice roasted corn ravioli and striped bass--generous portions. And dessert was also great--but so was the appetizer, consisting of about 6 different things--antipasto style. Wine list is excellent."

  • "The concept of a sandwich shop becoming a tasting menu restaurant at night might put some people off. Don't let it! The food and wine pairings were delicious. I think the corn ravioli was the best that I have ever eaten."

  • "Very clever use of the daytime sandwich shop and a fitting companion to Kapnos. Excellent food and great wine pairings which I would highly recommend. Can't wait to go back. "

  • "We loved every bite of this experience. The food was innovative and plenty, not to mention very reasonably priced. It was a dining adventure and I can't stop raving about it. I would not have picked pork cheek or pasta with snail ragu off a menu ordinarily, but the tasting menu allowed me to sample some extraordinary bites. It was not very crowded (but should have been), so should not be difficult to get a table and try this out for yourself. I was also under a bit of a time crunch, and the staff did everything possible to accommodate us. But I would have enjoyed lingering longer over this meal. "

  • "Great food and excellent service. Yes, you do need to bring a pillow if you can't abide hard bench seats that service the daytime sandwich shop, but great evening dining adventure and wine pairing at a very reasonable price. We'll go back soon!"

  • "We tried everything on the menu that night between us and every single dish was delicious, seasonal, and creative. The wine pairing went well with food. Excellent pace of meal despite a busy Sat. night and very good wait staff rounded out a wonderful meal. "

  • "Made 930PM dinner reservations for five. Table not ready - finally sat us at a four top table and pulled up a chair after complaining to the hostess. Drink service was slow. First choice in wine was "sold out". First course was slow coming out of the kitchen. They did not have enough of the second course meals for our party. At 11PM, I had to go find the waitress to see when our second course was coming out of the kitchen. Asked for the check at the same time. They knocked $50 off the bill which was a nice gesture but doesn't make up for all the issues we had. Avoid this place until they figure out how to run a restaurant. It's too bad too as the food we did get was actually pretty good."

  • "Although this place is more known for it's sandwiches (which I have yet to try), I had a Gilt City voucher for their 5 course tasting menu and a bottle of prosecco. The ambience has very casual decor, but that doesn't distract from delicious upscale food. Added bonus was the wonderful service...I can't remember the waiter's name, but he did a great job with being friendly, keeping both wine and water glasses full, and timing the courses well."
