    We have been to this restaurant several times. Each time the food has been memorable and delicious. Thankfully, there are several items that stay on the menu, such as the chili lobster and halibut. This may be one of our favorite places in the city. It would probably be our favorite place if it was just a little bit less noisy

    Went for a birthday and had the tasting menu. Waiter was very good and food excellent. Not only delicious but an experience for the mouth the way items were paired. One small critique is they assume everyone is a couple on how they served some food in a bowl to share instead of your own bowl. Further they'd give an odd number of food items for two ppl. Eg. 5 small pasta noodles instead of 6. We had to cut one on half. Would recommend and go again.

    Great night all around. I loved the rustic and lively atmosphere. The service was top notch. Amazing use of truffles in the main dishes. Favorites included the kampachi and lobster appetizers, and I loved the 10 minute cookies and milk as well as the coconut semifreddo. Can't wait to come back here.

    The tasting menu that my husband and I has was amazing -- not merely a meal but quite a culinary experience. There were about 8 dishes to sample and although we were hard up pick our favorite, in the end we decided we both liked the tuna carpaccio and the chili lobster the best. And the service was impeccable!

    Everything here was top notch starting with the specialty cocktails, which we had at the bar, before heading back to the restaurant area. We ordered the tartare and the caviar topped foie gras (special) as appetizers, and were blown away. I had the black bass for dinner and my friend had the duck...and once again blown away. I don't usually get desserts, but had to since everything thus far was so amazing. Yep...blown away. I'm a big ambience person, and this restaurant is chic and rustic, edgy and charming. Great atmosphere and super inviting staff. There was another iron chef dining at the table next to ours. So cool!

    We had a great experience at this restaurant. Bottomless mimosas for $16.00( not your everyday Mimosas, not orange juice sweet or sour, just perfect taste Mimosas) and very tasteful food, the courtesy biscuits are delicious . The service was impeccable what made our Sunday brunch a very especial one.

    We had a great dinner! In New York visiting friends, I chose Forge because Marc is one of my favorite chefs to watch. Our experience was great from start to finish, I called and added another guest to our reservation and it was no problem. Drinks in the lounge, then dinner at a quaint table. Our service was awesome, the whole staff seemed to work as a team, we didn't want for a thing. Great experience, beautiful decor and gorgeous and delicious food. I almost went back the next day for Kampachi and those cookies!!!

    This restaurant has a great menu with well-prepared dishes. There are plenty of staff on for service, but they seem to do a lot of unfocused rushing about. Response time seems unnecessarily slow, with items arriving well after you think they've forgotten about you.

    Read some mixed reviews, but after our daughter and husband raved about Forgione's; we decided to go there for our 46th anniversary dinner. We found several of the elements of our dishes overly salty. I had the Berkshire pork chop which was tasty, but nothing to write home about. My wife's swordfish was mushy/mealy and overcooked, and lots of the beans served with the dish were hard. In hind sight she should have sent it back, because she was up most the night with an upset stomach that lasted well into the next day. We're thinking now that perhaps the fish was spoiled. I guess what was most memorable about the dinner, was that it was the first time I ever spent over $300 for what I would consider a mediocre meal!

    Going to the restaurant of an Iron Chef, I expected the food to be amazing (and it was), but what really made the night was the extremely hospitable staff. Claire, our server, really made the whole meal enjoyable from start to finish. Providing us with tasty little extras in-between courses and even rising to my (joke) challenge of finding us one more treat before we paid the bill (delicious mini-muffins). Food just tastes better when there's great service delivering it to you. And Clarie turned what could have just been a memorable meal into an unforgettable experience.

    What a wonderful meal! We entered the restaurant and were so pleasantly surprised by how spacious it was...for a city spot! The service was excellent the whole meal with a very knowledgable, friendly waitress and an entire group of staff that seemed to work seamlessly together. The food was so interesting and tasty. The duck was out of this world as was the fish! Don't leave without getting some cookies and milk and the mini ice cream cones...all made in house and all AMAZING!

    Everything was perfect, from the bartender's recommendations, to the sommelier's friendly approach that was warm and welcoming, to the dishes being split on two plates in the kitchen so we could share everything. The peach shortcake was the best shortcake I have ever eaten. The only regret was not being hungry enough to indulge in the tasting menu. I'll definitely be back!

    Amazing food with friendly and attentive staff. One thing I wasn't expecting was how dark the restaurant was, which I suppose is a plus if you're self-conscious and don't like people watching you eat :p The halibut was deliciously cooked on its own, but a different kind of delicious when mixed in the sauce it came with. If I could change one thing, it would be to ask for more chocolate items on the dessert menu; though, those 10 minute cookies did an excellent job at satiating my chocolate craving.
