AMAZING wine selection. Ordered a bottle of bordeaux and it was better than the bordeaux I've had in France. Food was also superb. Ambience was great and noise level, amazing. I did not have to scream or strain my ears to hear. Highly recommended for a date/catch-up!

This is a very cool, comfortable and small place. Very limited seating so reserve ahead. The menu is short but imaginative. We had some delicious roasted cauliflower that you dappled in an excellent spicy sauce. The hamburger was cooked as ordered and extremely satisfying, if somewhat small. Fries (a separate side) were good but not remarkable. They came with a minuscule amount of spiced up aioli on the side.

Whoever chooses the wines knows what they’re doing. The list isn’t long, (no need if it’s a good list) but has some extraordinarily interesting and less known producers and varietals. Holds true for red, white and sparkling.

But there’s one BIG problem: The pours are very skimpy for the $15 and upward by-the-glass prices. If each in your party has a couple, plus food, the check is going to be really high. Higher than the restaurant can justify. Bottle prices seemed pretty fair. Friendly, responsive service. Very noisy if crowded.

Seriously excellent tapas and mains. The beets and broccoli rabe were delicious. The hummus bowel - with cucumbers, olives, tomatoes, and greens was lush to the tongue and perfect with crusty Italian bread. Yes, the mushroom tacos are simply out of the world good. What's in that brown sauce?! The whole branzino may well have been the best I have ever had - the skin was perfectly crispy and the "meat" perfectly tender and tasty. My partner was pleased with his burger. Desserts (phyllo apple pie and gelato) topped off a delightful meal. Service was attentive and friendly. I cannot wait to return.

Inventive dishes, fantastic food. Quiet dining room, almost too dark to read the menu. Great ordering system, as the waiter used a tablet to take orders, with the kitchen seeing the items needed instantly.

Excellent choices of small plates....many vegetarian options, great spice and sauce combinations. Wine list has hard to find unusual varietals that are superb; bar tender/wine consultant makes excellent recommendations to pair with one's dishes as many wines are by the glass. Small intimate feel to the restaurant

Similar to other reviews (disappointed that I didn’t heed their advice) food was delicious but overpriced. Service was the issue, he was very friendly and we figured he was trying to be funny(?) but came across rude and obnoxious. Also if you take such pride in your wine offering and charge $19 for a single glass of wine, please provide a new fresh glass when someone places a different drink order. Wasn’t ideal trying a glass of rosé with the dredges/remnants of the previous wine sitting in the bottom of the glass.

Had a wonderful dinner here after seeing an opera at the Met. Small plates but every single one of them was full of flavor and absolutely delicious. The wine that we had complemented our choices perfectly. The service was wonderful and the dessert at the end was delightful. Would definitely visit again!!

Food is fine, but the room is totally no-fun. It is basically a cramped corridor with some ungracious seating crammed in there. Extremely ungracious. If you are a single, furthermore, you won't even get a table but will have to sit at the bar, even though you've made a reservation. Sorry folks, one of the main reasons for going out to a restaurant is that the atmosphere ought to be uplifting/cheery/gracious, etc. etc. If you don't get that, you may as well pop a frozen meal into your oven. While the food is okay, it's not anywhere near so great as to make it worthwhile to go to an unpleasant hole-in-the wall. And it of course a full service hole-in-the-wall, so it's not like you're eating $5 tacos at a Mexican quick-food hole-in-the-wall. The economics don't add up: it's not a good deal to pay full-service restaurant prices, when the place is just no fun.

This place is so charming and has great music and overall vibe. I thought the food would be better given the reviews. It was tasty but I wasn't wowed. Chips with the whitefish were not soft, not crispy. Asparagus did not taste very special to me. Mussels were probably the best dish we ordered. I would go again however due to overall factors and wanting to give it a second try.

This is possibly the best restaurant in Hell's Kitchen. My husband and I go every few weeks and we've never had a dish that isn't absolutely incredible. The menu changes daily so everything is fresh and innovative. Definitely a must-visit if you're in the area.

Decided to try this place out after searching for somewhere new to eat in the neighborhood. After many amazing reviews and photos we decided to just give it a go! Best decision ever. I’d recommend doing two or three small plates and then splitting a large plate if it’s two people going.

We ate here early before the theater. Restaurant is small and charming. Noise factor was low, which is a plus for anyone trying to have a conversation. The best part was the food -- the burger was perhaps one of the best I've ever had, the cauliflower was perfect and the pork tacos also delicious.

Highly recommend this place, can't wait to come back!

The food is delicious and comes out quickly! It’s an easy place to go before seeing a show- just make sure you have reservation. The baked brie is a must order; don’t just save it for dessert!
