Great food, terrible service. We had a reservation for 8.15 and they left us standing waiting and hungry for 25 minutes before they let us sit.

Delicious as always with exception of bread basket and lack of setups. 3 not-so-fresh rolls. Not quantity or price that was disappointing but quality. Hangar Steak to die for!

Urban backyard setting. Adjacent wedding venue with similar urban backyard setting. You were forced to attend the wedding via the band and attending announcements. . Service was decent. Ribeye, French Onion Soup were excellent. Escargot was decent. The burger was disappointing in that it fell apart and the cheese was not melted Basically just an urban cram it all in space with ok food

Food is fresh and tasty. This restaurant is consistently good--we are repeat customers. I have tried various menu items including appetizers and main courses and have not had a complaint with any.

I ordered the steak medium rare but it was so tough and a lot of fibrous if it makes sense. I don’t know if I would order that again. My date ordered the veggie pasta which was however delicious.

Nice ambiance, but the entres were overpriced for being so subpar, particularly the lobster pasta.
Restaurant seemed understaffed so not enough attention was given to our table and needs. French onion soup and créme brûlée we’re yummy though!

Not what it was unfortunately. Bread is $4 and it’s worse than the bread you are served on US airlines. Food came out after sitting on the plate clearly.

I love this place. If you want a quick meal, this isn’t for you. The wait staff tends to leave you alone and it takes a minute to get food but that just leaves more time to enjoy your friends and your meal. The wine is very reasonably priced for New York and the food is fantastic. They used to have a lamb special, I’m still holding out hope they’ll bring it back. This place is vastly under appreciated.

The dining experience was overall very good. The only compliant I have is it's menu online on it's website was not the same menu they had at the restaurant. If they were going to have that discrepancy, it should at the very least me noted on it's website that the menu is not up to date.

Staff was helpful and attentive. The food was well prepared: perfectly grilled octopus, parpadelle al dente, perhaps a little skimpy on the lobster...Delicious fondant, Ttin lacking in caramel. The hanger steak was cooked to my specs.
The menu is typical bistro, could be be more imaginative (except the octopus!)
Wine selection was amazing, although pricey, but we got a good bottle.

Really bad service, they rarely check on you, actually they didn’t check on us at all, every time we would have to go up to them, then proceed to wait and sometimes having to remind them after 20 minutes, they rarely checked on other tables so it was a bad look that we were the only black customers and they seemed to forget about us, they forgot parts of my order, we asked for bread and never got it until we were about to leave and the inside of it was cold so clearly they just took it out the fridge or something. All in all they should be ashamed of themselves.

Received uncooked steak (not requested medium) and mussels that were unopened and frankly dangerous to eat. Roasted potatoes were over salted and tasted/looked like not freshly made. Waste of time and money. Will not come back.

Great brunch! We had the burgers, with excellent home fries, savory crepe (asparagus, goat cheese and egg) with side frisee salad, and for dessert, the delicious chocolate lava cake.

We've previously only had dinner there, which was always excellent. Sat in the backyard until it started raining, then were moved inside. The service is excellent, you can take your time and let them know when you're ready to go.

We had a great time here. It was even better that our family name is Bacchus. The food was great, our kids were comfortable and the service was really good too.
