Service was friendly and efficient. The restaurant was fairly crowded and pretty noisy due to bar crowd and piano singer. Food was good, everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Waiter was attentive. Good value for a NYC restaurant.

We ordered the $38 prix fixe, with salad or appetizer (indifferent bruschetta), choice of entree (her bowl of Israeli couscous and a moderately spicy sausage that is not what I would call "chorizo" wasn't bad, but my chicken breast with demi-glace as dry and chewy), and choice of dessert (my lemon meringue pie was terrible, lots of gelatin and very little lemon flavor, on a crust that wasn't brown).

The plates were delicious. The steak was cooked to a perfect medium-rare. The piano bar next door was a real good time. Definitely be back!

Turns out the restaurant is in a separate annex to the piano player so it is just a small and quiet restaurant. Set menu food was lovely. We finished our meal just before 9 pm and went into the piano bar area and it was packed solid with bar users. No seats/ tables spare so we left. Such a shame to leave as it looked great and had a fab atmosphere. Perhaps I needed to do more research on the venue but only chose it for entertainment.

For example, when I met with my friend at the front door, he just gave him the nastiest look and I’m not sure why. It was like a look of disgust. Didn’t feel comfortable talking to him from that moment on.

I don't vision myself returning the food wasn't great, and the cost of the food was over charged. I won't be returning.

Resonable prices. Excellent service. The value is also great except I was surprised by the drink costs. I had a Manhattan which was $14. I didn't think that was too bad but my wife had a single shot of peach schnapps and orange juice for a fuzzy navel and it was $16- more than my Manhattan. We were surprised by those costs. The service wasn't particularly good at the bar either (this is the piano bar). The bartender was nice enough but we sat way up by the door and he rarely got up to that end to wait on us. We also observed a lot of people coming in and standing for quite a while waiting to be seated only to then be told they could sit anywhere and order at the bar. With that said, it was our only weak experience in that bar and the restaurant side was outstanding as always. Very consistent. We look forward to visiting again.

I found the restaurant during a previous visit to NYC, and the sign/advertisement seemed to advertise a restaurant where the wait staff, were also singing. May have been my misunderstanding but I read reviews, etc and felt the dinner featured singing staff members, much like the Stardust Diner. Food was good but with so many great restaurants in the city, would not be a top choice. Very quiet, not trendy at all.

We'll worth it for the music! Main show started at 9, but warm up act was fab (and created a good ambience as it was a little quieter). The main show was super fun with all the staff joining in and taking requests

Door kept opening for no apparent reason, the bread basket was conveniently brought with just enough for one hard stale piece for each person. No offer to refill. Nice enough waiter by not very friendly

The dining area is small, but comfortable. We selected the pre fixe menu option during our reservation, but we had to tell our waiter about this as he wasn't aware when he took our drink order. I would think this would be something the waiter should be made aware of beforehand. Speaking of drinks, we were not informed on the menu or by the waiter that soda did not come with free refills. We hadn't thought to ask since every other restaurant we'd eaten in while in the City offered free refills, so this made for quite a surprise when we got our bill. The appetizers were good, but the vodka penne entree was a bit undercooked and therefore somewhat chewy. The dessert options were limited to 2: the walnut brownie was quite tasty, but the lemon meringue pie had a very store-bought quality to it. Overall, I'm glad we can say that we've eaten at this iconic NYC location, and we'll most likely be back for a drink or a show, but I don't think we'd do it again for a meal.

The wait staff was lovely - friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Can't beat the location on Restaurant Row! We ate on the quieter, restaurant side of the establishment. There is another side that has the live music and performances - know there's definitely a bar over there, but didn't ask whether or not could have eaten dinner on that side too. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this place!

Half way through meal, a performer came out and then room filled with her audience, all standing around and filling room! Promised a seat in bar to listen to live music, no one came to get us or offer a seat after half an hour left. On booking told them a Birthday, waste of time, very poor, no atmosphere and certainly no celebration!

I booked in advance for the evening of my Birthday for a meal. When we arrived we were seated at a table which was positioned on the tiled floor right next to the door. Each time a customer or staff member walked by the table my chair was knocked. I asked to be moved and this was arranged so that we were moved to another table. It was just disappointing that the restaurant even expected customers to sit at a table in the foyer area - it was a shame as it’s not the normal service I receive from the restaurant.
