We sat outside because it was unbearably loud inside. Tables were off balance and on a slant, chairs wobbled, tables too small for all dinner plates, food was really bad! Just an overall negative experience...so rare in a city like NY

The server was rude and pushy. When asking questions about the menu she gave short answers and snappy. The busboy/attendant was much more helpful and he made the meal more pleasant

Fabulous food! Food and drinks came out slowly - this could be an issue. Worth the wait in my case, but I’m not real happy waiting on an initial cocktail.

Went for brunch. Their "boozy brunch" is a great value, they don't skimp which is appreciated. Other cocktails are very nice, too. Food options were great, although I would have loved for my pineapple/pistachio french toast to have more pineapple and pistachio! Waitress was very helpful and sweet. I'd definitely return.

It was just ok. They didn't have my opentable reservation in the system for some reason, the seating area was awkward and the vibe felt abandoned because it was all the way in the back. The service was just ok and a bit rushed. The food was not amazing. I've been here a number of times in the past few years and it was significantly better before. Don't get the mac and cheese, it left much to be desired. The chicken tenders were very dry in places, the fries were good, the fried chicken sandwich flavors were good but the batter was not completely crispy. We felt rushed by the waitress when it was time to pay and she didn't follow instructions when we told her how to split the bill. We paid with 2 credit cards and cash. I wouldn't choose this place to return to. There are plenty of other American eateries and bars in the neighborhood that are worth checking out.

The service is just ok, I have been there twice and the hostess is awful. She’d rather be at the bar flirting with the bartender then putting people at tables.

We ordered a bunch of things as we were friends meeting up that wanted to drink and munch on some food. We ordered the Burrata which was amazing, the mac and cheese, crab and artichoke dip, zucchini noodles. Everything was great but I was most impressed with the cocktails, definitely worth a second visit.

I made a reservation that afternoon and when we arrived the hostess was very nonchalant about telling us that they didn't have the reservation. She barely looked at my phone when i tried to show her the confirmation email. She just kept saying the problem was with opentable, which I get, but you should at least pretend to care if the service that you're using is making reservations improperly. Anyway, opentable the next day said that everything was fine on their end. She offered to seat us when she could but the place was packed. i don't know who was really at fault but the restaurant didn't handle this well at all.

Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect when coming here but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. My burger was cooked exactly how I like it, and the fries were good also. Overall, I had a good experience.

I didn’t like my dish, but the rest of my party liked theirs. Drinks were a little overpriced for what they were ($15 for a standard Manhattan). The thing that really annoyed me though was they didn’t have the table ready for our reservation and they sat as at a bar stool ? I then saw open tables in the back area?

Came here for Happy Hour with a few friends/clients. Think I had higher expectations given the rating in FB, Yelp and Open Table but it’s just a sports bar. Maybe a notch above you average sports bar but food was mediocre. We ordered, deviled eggs, veggie burger, shisito peppers, muscles in wine (really tastes but the peppers seemed like they were past their expiration), zucchini pasta dish and a salad. Nothing was horrible and nothing was really that good. Service was attentive.

I like this place but have had mixed service in my visits. This last visit the waitress was outright rude so we complained to the manager and he made everything great.
It’s great for brunch and happy hour!

We were a big group for a bachelorette party and our waitress was very attentive and prompt with drinks and food. We had a nice large table in quieter back area all to ourselves and had a great time.
