RSVP reviews from OpenTable diners
  • good food, terrible service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 3/16/2013
    The service was terrible and there were multiple tables open so there was no excuse. The food was very small portions, especially the ahi tuna spring ROLL ... it was one roll. The rock shrimp tempura was very good. I went with three other people and although the food was good, there were small portions the left us full, but not overly full for what we paid. Maybe had the service been better, we would have enjoyed ourselves better. Ask for a table on the lower level under the chandelier. There were big groups of people that seemed to be getting more attention than us.

    Overall it was a good experience at RSVP, my only issue was the prices. I felt that they were extremely overpriced for no reason. Like a tiny little tomato salad was $16. But the food was tasty, service was good, and there was a DJ spinning good music.

  • 40th Birthday Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/22/2013
    Amazing from the moment we entered. The bar gave a cool vibe which overlook the sunken restaurant. The Truffle Artichoke Flatbread was the perfect starter at the bar, flavors were amazing left you wanting to try all the others too. Felt special just going down the stairs to our table beneath 8 chandeliers which gives off the most beautiful ambiance. Apps Burrata Mozzarella (the best we have ever had)& Miso Black Cod (flavor was perfection). Dinner 2 Truffle Honey Rack of Lamb (tender & nice sweetness), Cedar Roasted Whole Branzino (full of flavor - yet so light)& a Salmon Special (seasoning was delicious) Winner of the night side of the Large Elbow Truffle Mac & Cheese- so good almost wanted to lick the bowl!!!

    After the busboy gave us our water, our server never greeted us until he saw us put our menus down. He then came over and said "what would you like?" never introducing himself or asking if we'd like a cocktail. Our entrees were great but about half way through the entree we both finished our cocktails and our server never asked if we'd like another. 15 minutes after our entree plates were cleared by the busboy we were able to flag down our waiter to ask him if there was a dessert menu. Again our dessert was great and our drinks sat empty. 15 minutes after our dessert plates were cleared we were able to flag down our server and get our check. We will never return due to the service. Server was not busy FYI.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/1/2013
    Great find! Stumbled upon during restaurant week and was extremely pleased with the find! Sampled both the rock shrimp tempura and foie gras dumpling appetizers which were fantastic, each favor melting in your mouth!Our main course was the lamb and hanger steak, both very good, bit small portions. Personally they were just the right amount of food for us, but might be disappointing for other guests expecting a larger plate (maybe due to restwk menu). For our final course we had the bread pudding which was also delicious! Unfortunately they ran out of the lava cake option as well as the melbac i had, this was the only downside to the experience, however the staff was very attentive accommodating, making it an enjoyable night! Will return!

    The waitress was horrible. She didn't even give us the Restaurant Week menu. I had to ask for it. She also couldn't really speak English, so she struggled taking our orders. I had an awful cocktail that ended up costing $17 - and we all thought the food was somewhere in the range of mediocre to subpar. And to top it off, the restaurant was empty. I won't go back, and I've told my friends not to go.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013VIP
    Dined on 1/25/2013
    I found RSVP to be way overpriced. The lighting was disturbingly low in the main dining room so we asked to sit by the windows where it was drafty. Our server was very pleasant. The chopped salad was tiny and nothing I couldn't make better on my own. The truffle honey rack of lamb was small and disappointing after I specifically asked the waiter if it was tiny. Two small racks over a dollop of black garlic potato purée with a small drizzle of truffle honey. We had three courses however I left hungry. A quick glance at the sad wine list made me realize what a ripoff the establishment is. Marquis de la tour brut for $18? I will not be returning.

    Ok. Came here for restaurant week, so the price wasn't bad, although the food definitely would be overpriced at full price. The sauces on the meat was the highlight, as was the bread pudding. Ambiance was a little weird, a mix of purple and black curtains and velvet, which felt more like a lounge. Lackluster wine list though. At $25 / main, I would recommend, at $40 / main, there are better places to go.

    We went to RSVP for restaurant week and were extremely disappointed. The food was bland at best, they were out of the two dessert options highlighted on the menu, and service was painfully slow. The restaurant turned into a night club half way through our meal and they actually moved the tables all around us and we were left dining in the middle of the dance floor. Terrible experience all around.

    You can tell this could easily be a HOT spot at any moment, probably later than earlier but i didn't stick around. The first thing I noticed when I walked in was the awful stench like bad B.O. that just hung in the air and subsided by end of our meal (but still there). The service was good but between dishes took a while but then we weren't rushed either. The dinner/drinks can get quite pricey. Bunch of tables with only women which makes it more enjoyable. This place could work.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 12/17/2012
    This place seems way overhyped ... maybe it was better back in the day. Definitely not a "hot spot" as there were only about 15-20 people total. Despite the limited number of patrons, we still received horrible service and pretty much had to chase down our server every time we needed something (he didn't even take our dinner order until 60 minutes after us sitting ... and we had to solicit him). To top it all off, everything was absurdly overpriced. I won't be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 12/13/2012
    No happy hour specials. The bartender was confused about billing. Expensive drinks, especially for happy hour. A bottled beer was $8, and a glass of wine was $10. A limit of 12 on the oyster special. The menu for the bloomspot offer was misleading as it showed that dessert was included. The food was okay, but not worth the amount paid for the bloomspot deal, and certainly not worth $170. The cocktail menu was intriguing. The service was great. Very attentive. My bar tab cost half as much as the bloomspot deal. I will not return. Too many other places to go, many of which have true happy hour deals without limits or restrictions.

    Don't go on a Wed! Wanted to go somewhere fun - almost STK'ish and based on the PR thought this may do. Not more than 5 ppl...hostes blamed it on a Wed night but then headed to B&E after and it was jammed!!! Had no coffee (1030 pm) and no black tea - dessert was a bust. Our server was knowledgable however and knew how to serve our dishes with artistry. Not a place to go to during the week for sure... One last positive - the best truffle Mac and cheese...mmmmm

We arrived early and the hostess let us set up the gifts on the plates before our friends arrived. It was very sweet. The waiter was great and I was impressed he was able to handle all those girls! Poor guy! The music was awesome and it was perfect because it becomes a lounge, we stayed and partied the entire night at the bar. The food was very good too and the dessert!

    We came here for brunch and the place was completely dead. Apparently it gets much busier at night. In any case, the food was amazing and the service was good, albeit a bit informal, but I think that was because we were the only ones in the place. The host/server/bartender was very friendly and even gave us drink coupons to come back that evening. We had other plans, but the gesture was nice. We will definitely go back. Highly recommend the French Toast Box!

    Very expensive place for mediocre food. I had the caesar salad (fair, although the fried cheese the salad was in was pretty good), foie gras dumpling and tuna appetizers (former was poor, latter fair) and the salmon wellington (excellent). The white wine that came with the voucher was good. Service was excellent and the place looked nice.

    Food was excellent. As a new restaurant in the neighborhood, they tried their best to take care of us well. As the night went on and the restaurant got packed, the service fell slightly. I think they are still trying to manage the flow and figure out the groove they need to get into when busy. But they did apologize for leaving us alone a bit and for the longer than usual wait for the food. Overall an excellent experience!

    The restaurant is lovely, trendy decor and has a live dj spinning. Our waiter was charming, funny and very attentive. The food was delicious. We bought a Gilt voucher and they ran out of some on the entrees on the gilt menu. The waiter brought over the regular and let my husband order anything he wanted. My husband ordered a filet mignon that was cooked perfectly. Perfectly seared on the outside and medium rare in the inside. My sister ordered the salmon in puff pastry and it was so good. For dessert, we had the french toast cake - yummy. I would definately recommend it and come back here.

    The food wasn't impressive and way overpriced. Our Tuna app still had tendons in it and my entre was way over salted. The drinks were okay, when I asked the server if the specialty cocktails were sweet his response was yes, they were all sweet and didn't provide a recommedation or offer an alterative. It was very loud and we really felt ignored. I wouldn't return.
