Although we were originally given a door right by the server entrance, we were moved when we asked for a different table. Service was impeccable. Friendly staff and very efficient. We had the macaroni and collard greens and the shrimp and grits. The macaroni was rich and flavourful and the shrimp and grits delicious. Portions are generous and filling. Cornbread also yummy!

I have been to Mountain Bird and Gaudir, both at this location. You must try both of these restaurants. It’s an excellent choice for a special evening and business meals. Gaudir is at this location on Mondays, and Mountain Bird is there the rest of the week. Both have incredible creative menus; the service is impeccable; prices are moderate; they use the highest quality ingredients. More

Seafood | Harlem, Manhattan

Diana was a terrific and attentive server last night. My lobster bisque, while very tasty, was overly salted.... kitchen needs to cut way back on the salt, which can easily be added at the table if the diner wants that amount of salt. The nation Red Lobster should heed this advice and trend. Biscuits were delicious, if a bit heavy on the garlic.... a little less would be just as effective. Nice roomy tables and quiet atmosphere. A cpl of spotlights were flickering like strobes and should have been changed before the dinner service as it's quite disruptive, and the bathroom stalls in the ladies room could use attention. Would dine there again. More

Discover Harlem

Renowned for its vibrant culture across music and literature, Harlem’s burgeoning restaurant scene has made it one of the most exciting neighborhoods in the five boroughs. Soul food is always on the menu, but now it has a modern twist—part gourmet, part classic comfort. And it’s not all chicken and waffles uptown. Ramen shops beckon with their slurpy noodles, and down-home seafood shacks sling salt water treasures. To spice it up, you can also explore NYC’s only Somali restaurant for savory pastries and other adventurous eats. Amidst the brownstones and history of Harlem, new flavors await.
