I hadn't been before but worked "around the corner" for years. I'm glad to have discovered this place and certainly play to return. It has a very relaxed vibe, great food and the staff was relatable and friendly.

On-line menu options did not agree with the actual, very-limited menu. Had we known, we probably would have gone somewhere else with more extensive and varied options. Waiters could have been more attentive to filling drinks and removing plates. Would likely not go back for dinner. Might consider just drinks and apps ONLY.

The first bottle of wine we ordered had some sediment which is unusual for a year old white, obviously was stored improperly. My call out to that effect was dismissed and the chill bucket was never brought out. The service got much better after we ordered a second $100+ bottle. We got smiles from staff, a chill bucket and a bit more attention. Can't say I wouldn't dine there again, but would not be my first choice.

The food is consistently excellent. We enjoy wine with our meal. They have some good selections, but overpriced in my opinion. My only complaint about Metro North. Worth a try.

Very impressed with ambience and food service. Everything came out quickly and well prepared! Ordered a Sangria pitcher and bang bang shrimp to start. Very flavorful and so yummy I even finished the slaw bed it was presented on! We both ordered the Butterfish Francaise and we weren't disappointed! It was creamy, buttery and so light that melted in my mouth! So good I'm still salivating over it! Then we ordered a chocolate martini 🍸 for dessert and that went down smooth! Service was prompt and attentive but not hovering Overall a great date night experience! Already can't wait to go back after Easter to try the recommended meatballs!

Excellent food and service both times. Very good cocktails also. My wife and I felt like royalty as we were seated in a large circular booth overlooking the dining room and bar area. We enjoyed the Bang Bang shrimp appetizer very much. Our server, Joyce, was very attentive to the two of us, despite a busy Friday night and a few larger groups in her section. Thank you for a wonderful evening. Highly recommended.
