Good was delicious and creatively presented. Wait staff was very attentive. Ambience was neat.
Wine list prices and selection was outrageous, food was not well prepared. I will not return
My wife and I were enjoying an afternoon of skating in Bryant Park and stopped here for dinner, on Christmas Day.
It's attached to the lobby of the Archer Hotel, yet felt warm and cozy inside. The Fabric theme (due to its location in NYC's garment district) is cleverly found throughout the restaurant, right down to the fabric swatch style menu.
We started with baked mussels and the "Bacon on a clothing line" and loved both. The bacon is honestly to die for! For a drink, I recommend the blackberry/vodka/proseco/lime cocktail (forgot the name). Wine list was also good enough to fit my wife's taste.
For dinner, my wife had the roasted chicken in dirty rice with collared greens... and she could not stop talking about how good it was. I had the steak fritas, also very good. For desert we shared the 3 flavor ice cream with toppings... also good.
After dinner we went up the Spyglass Bar (same hotel) and were amazed by the view of Empire State Building. We will definitely return here in the summer to enjoy drinks outside!
Finally, the service was very, very good. Our waiter went out of his way to make sure my drink was mixed properly and that my wife found a wine that fit her pallet.
Definitely recommend this place for a casual good meal that any foodie would enjoy!
Made the mistake of coming here on Christmas Day, a Sunday, and upon arriving (at 11 am) were told they were only serving "dinner". Should have turned and run at that point. Featured attraction: "Clothesline Bacon" @ $6 / slice. 'Nuff said.
The Christmas buffet was terrible and totally not worth the cost.
The food was not the greatest. I've been here before, and the food was amazing. We had friends in town and took them here because I was hoping for another outstanding meal. Unfortunately, it didn't meet my expectations this time around. Amazing customer service, but maybe I should have ordered something different on the menu.
Great options for everyone, one of my favorite places for a business lunch for sure!
This was my third time here and on each visit, while the food lives up to DB's standards, the service is really lacking. For example, 3 of 4 of us showed up on time for our reservation, but wouldn't be seated until the fourth arrived. Even when we said we would order drinks as soon as we were seated. For the third straight time, we took our coats to the table -- no one asked if we wanted to check them at a coat check. Once seated, we sat -- with no water, no one to take our drink order, etc. -- for almost 20 minutes. Unacceptable. When drinks finally were served, 2 of us got ours and the 2 who ordered glasses of wine had to wait another 5 minutes -- until we asked (in the meantime, the rocks in my bourbon had nicely started to melt, diluting my drink).
Once food started to be served and our waiter (Leonel, a avery pleasant, efficient person) turned his attention to us, and with typical good quality DB food, things picked up. But for the price and DB's reputation, I expect more.
My daughter and I had dinner here while on a 1 day trip to NYC. The food was delicious and arrived in a timely manner. The service, however, was beyond terrible. The waiter took our order and disappeared. We never saw him again. We finally asked another waitress for some help, but her service was lacking. Disappointed to have such a terrible experience at this restaurant.
We were celebrating my daughter's Sweet 16 and Aaron took wonderful care of us. The girls had a blast. Food was delicious. The Cheese Board was full of great items. Aaron had me taste a new red wine on their menu which was perfect. He also surprised the girls with a tree full of cheesecake pops and their Smores Dessert, which were both amazing. Couldn't have asked for more.
