Server was annoyed and not inviting at all.
Worst server I've ever had there. Must've been her bad day...

It seemed as if the restaurant was shorthanded with staff. There was no host at the host stand when we arrived. Thankfully the bartender was on top of it and very observant and attentive. She did an outstanding job managing the bar and restaurant, bringing us to our table, mixing the drinks, and managing the entirely full bar of people. I was very impressed with her.

Our waitress was very nice but was not attentive at all, we had to ask for menus, and hunt the staff down to get water refills, to go boxes and the check. In addition, they were out of one of the meals we ordered but the waitress didn't tell us until the other meals arrived. Finally the nachos we ordered had pork instead of chicken. When I told the staff that brought it out I had to prove to him that it was pork. He didn't believe me.

It's too bad I really liked the vibe when I walked in but the service was so poor I'd never go out of my way to find it again

Very nice atmosphere, attentive staff and quality food. It is an upscale pub, so the menu is what you would expect, but the food was good quality and well prepared. A bit pricey for lunch, but average when compared to other restaurants n midtown Manhattan.

Nice gastropub with a lot of wood accents. Our waitress, allison, was very friendly and efficient. I had broiled salmon with asparagus, wife had grilled trout with avocado salad. Both were good sized portions, very fresh and delicious and reasonably priced at $25 & $21. It was national french fries day so we added a side of fries for $5...very good shoestring fries...totally worth it! Excellent food and excellent service! Will definitely eat here again when back in city!

This is a bar. The only seating for dinner was in the bar area. We had very good appetizers, but the music was blasting so loudly, we couldn't stay for the main course.

We had the chicken sandwich and the salmon entree. Both were very good and tasty. This was the first time we were ever asked how we wanted a salmon cooked (like it was a burger).

Nice spot and decent atmosphere. Nice place to go for drinks and a bite.
