    We found the table adjacent to us VERY noisy. Young people are often shouting at each other especially after a glass or two of something intoxicating. We also found the light levels to be incredibly DIM and DARK - the wall washers in our corner were totally "off" - even a low glow would have helped a lot! The overall ambiance suffered as a result. Thank goodness, one of our birthday guests had brought his very own LED battery-powered mini table lamp - which was bright enough (without being glaring) for us to all read our menus! And see each others' faces. The gathering was for my husband's 78th birthday - and all of us were 70 or older. Many of your patrons are in their senior years - often longtime friends (like us) who enjoy a superb dining experience. Light, as has been proven by science, is very important to hearing - and we older folks are all troubled a little bit in the area - especially in a noisy environment. It is also important for communication - you need to see someone's face to hear what they are actually saying. The maitre d' was fascinated by our "imported LED light" - I do hope you will start to provide them to people such as our table who could really use the assistance if you continue your policy of "dim & romantic dinner lighting" for the 30-something crowd! Food was fantastic - everyone was delighted by their appetizers and entrees; rose wine was well-enjoyed; sourdough rolls were great - love the unsalted butter/olive oil; creme brulee delish (although not as large a serving as I remember - much thicker china and less of the custard itself). Apricot sorbet was excellent.

    Classic old-school, low-key New York bistro; very tasty food & lovely, friendly service. I’ve been gone from NYC for almost 15 years, and was very pleased to find it was still there on my most recent visit when I wanted to take a friend out for a bday lunch. Charming.

    Everything was very nice. Excellent food, very kind and lovely weight staff, nice ambience. The only thing might be the small portions compared to the price point which you might expect at a place such as this. But we would definitely return!
