It was an amazing experience

OpenTable Diner (New York Area)

The waiter assumed that I wanted a glass of wine when I was ordering one for my girlfriend, sidenote I do not drink, he told me it was all about her, which is funny because I had told him which one she wanted to try and which one she would have if she didn’t like it and did not even order a drink for myself but he wanted to feel smart. Then he asked what I wanted to drink I told him Diet Coke, then he repeated Diet Coke back to me in a shocked manner As if that wasn’t a real drink, then he proceeded to tip over the wine glass shattering it and shattering the candle at the table and smashing glass all over the place as well as red wine all over the place. After cleaning up the entire mess, he assured us that our first round was on him. I found that to be tacky, and also the least someone to do after making such a scene on Valentine’s Day. Also, the only round he bought was the wine I still paid full price for all of my Diet Coke’s none of which were “on him”. I asked him if he could assure me that the ribeye would be charred medium, And in and overconfident tone that was typical to his behavior, he said, “absolutely”. Needless to say the steak came out medium rare instead of what I had ordered, which was medium, he made sure to announce that he had it prepared medium rare, To which I didn’t respond because I wanted to get the meal over with at that point. As far as the steak being charged, there was some blackness to it but all of the fat was uncooked, none of it was crispy. Typically when a steak is charred the idea is to make sure all the fat is crispy especially on a ribeye.

Thank them for the free glass of wine that only cost us broken glass and spilled wine all over our table, not a bad deal

The service and decor was excellent. The food was great.. the duck fat should have been rendered a little bit more .. and it was on the line of being medium as opposed to medium rare. It was as if there was a decision to be made of whether they were going to over cook the duck and it contain the crispy skin we were looking for or it was going to be sent out as is but cooked to temperature but still very flavorful. All in all a great experience..

Ordered from restaurant week menu. Service could have been more attentive in the beginning. Food was ok. Nothing was “mind blowingly” good. Overall it was just ok.

Very solid food. Came during restaurant week and had a good time. Service was incredibly slow though and the prices without restaurant week wouldn’t be worth it. Better places nearby.

Waiter (Daniel?) was attentive and thoughtful. His recommendations were spot on and genuine but with food like that, it’s easy to be excited! Food again was delicious and my family definitely enjoyed the restaurant week experience. We will certainly be returning for our next special occasion. Thank you for making my birthday dinner extra special.

The food was delicious and the presentation of the food was great. The customer service and ambiance can use update. The bathroom was disgusting and not kept clean and tidy. It was nice to know the food was fresh from farmers, however I do not think I needed to see a picture of the farmers and their animals, while I am devouring a burger. I was confused about who was to follow up on checking up on my table, however when I did ask any of the workers for assistant, they were happy to do so.
