    Erstaunlich. Mit die beste Pasta, die ich je gegessen habe. Spaghetti Carbonara (perfekt). Und das in einem belgischen Restaurant in NYC.

    We had a great dinner. Shared a salad to start, and then I had the salmon. It is normally served on mashed potatoes, but since I am lo-carb, they had no problem substituting cooked vegetables. Others in my party had the mussels. My husband and his business partners eat here frequently.

    Slightly under the radar but one of the most pleasant places to go for lunch in New York. The food is solid, sometimes unusually so, with what a culinarian friend calls "the best calamari in the city." Another says the same about the chicken. The bar is lovely, beautifully designed, and on one recent day the TVs were probably the only ones around that were tuned into the track and field championships, not golf or baseball. The staff is very friendly and considerate. They seem to like working there.

    We had a great dinner last night! Good was outstanding… my husband had the all-you-can-eat mussels with the bacon and cream sauce, which was amazing. I had the salmon, which was perfect and so delicious! Service was super friendly and really very good. The ambiance was very loud and noisy, but I think that’s typical in NYC, so not a big deal. We would recommend this restaurant, for sure.

    Moules frites are amazing, as was everything we ordered. But the waitstaff was so dismissive and inattentive (it was not a staff shortage - they spent a lot of time chatting with other customers) that my party felt invisible. I was embarrassed that I was the one who had booked the place, honestly, given how rude the staff was, and because we had a party of six, gratuity was automatically added so we had no voice in that regard. I had been here pre-Covid and very much liked it, but I will not go again because of this negative experience.

    Our go to place when in the area for a show . Always a good meal Well prepared, excellent taste, attentive staff in a relaxed setting. We’ve only been back twice during the Covid period. I noticed bread wasn’t being served with the meal. I don’t know if this is a new policy, a Covid related issue or just needs to be requested. It would be nice to have when ordering the mussels for dunking in the sauce or eating the steak tartare.
