A rare find on UWS. Delicious unpretentious interesting food, professional service, reasonable prices and best of all quiet enough to have a conversation.

Nice menu with options from lighter fare to steak. Happy hour was a good value and the appetizers tasty. The Roo Burger was excellent. I’d go again and would hang out there if I lived in the neighborhood.

Everything was rather disappointing. Actually we all felt a bit ill afterwards. Lots of grease. The triple fries were similar to basic dinner fries, nothing special. The steaks were ok as was the chicken but nothing special.

Very good food. Nicely plated. Tables are reasonable distance and when I was there, it wasn't crowded so they sat people at every other table and not together. Staff is friendly, patient and helpful. Generous with refilling my water glass!!!

Everything was excellent. Good and our server was efficient and friendly. One thing we mentioned to the server as just a bit much. Charging $4.00 every time they refilled a 10 ounce glass of iced tea. Reallyjust

It’s really nice that they offer the same menu for restaurant week. Appetizers were ok, entrees were pretty good, but a bit disappointed for the desserts. May come visit again.

We have been here many times and consistently find good food and good service. But one of the things we value most is the ambiance and that we can have a conversation and hear each other! More and more unusual, more and more valued

Delicious brunch! Fried chicken sandwich, aioli, and perfectly crisp potatoes! Our salty dog carafe was very refreshing! Quieter than expected on a summer Sunday, but lovely for catching up with friends. Would definitely return!

Menu was interesting and food beautifully presented but limited choices. Food was good but nothing special—a little bland. Drinks excellent; bread pudding with toffee excellent. Our server was arrogant and inattentive. Told us at the start that a “trained service dog could bring food “ but he said “I hope I can do more”. Then the meal was delayed; deserts brought at different times, and it felt as if he was going through the motions of following up but could care less about our experience. Was it because we were older couples? Too bad because the restaurant came highly recommended to us.

If going to the Beacon Theatre for a show or to watch a great act (recently Eddie Izzard) make sure you drop into this great place (5 mins away). The staff are friendly, the drinks are good and the food excellent.
