Great food and a cool environment. The service was great and pretty quick. I would definitely come back with friends and try something else from their yummy menu. I ordered the meatloaf and it was really tasty and a nice size portion.
I knew what I was getting by booking this restaurant. It's a diner but better than a diner and so I wasn't expecting fine dining but a good place to stop after going to the Rubin Museum. My salad was very good and service was good. Our waiter said he was new but he did a good job. We were seated right away. A table next to us left after waiting for a bit but I'm not sure what the problem was. My husbands meal was not as good as he had hoped, he got the meatloaf. This is why I am not giving it more stars. Don't expect fine dining, expect diner food with a nice outside seating area.
I've only been twice and both times I got the ginger salmon. It was delicious. Underneath the salmon was a puree of peas with peas and mushroom. I highly recommend it. My dad also got the salmon and he was pleasantly surprised by how tasty it was. The complimentary biscuits are a good touch and quite tasty as well.
