The restaurant seems to be quite popular...filled up completely and quickly for lunch. A Little noisy. The Nicoise salad was tasty and fresh, but for $34 a little steep on the price (maybe its the NYC location ..midtown...and cost of overhead)...could add a few more morsels of the tuna and 2 more halves of the fingerling potatoes and a few more verticot vert (green beans).
The staff was attentive, professional, accommodating. (I asked to be moved from a drafty window on a cold day) and welcoming.
For lunch for just a salad and Perrier water, >$50 a little steep. The bottle of Perrier was $10...but they did ask if I wanted sparkling....I may try the place for dinner at some point.

the food is great and the location is very convenient.
the service is first class and the people-watching is so fun!
while the room is busy and fun, the tables are spread-out enough to allow real conversations.
the owner (Michael) walks the room and has a very good handle on his business and customers.
this restaurant has a great reputation and it is well deserved ... congratulations!

The food is creative and perfectly prepared. The seating is comfortable, and there is ample room between tables. Our waitress was a bit aggressive in ‘selling’ food and drink. The wine list is super but the mark-ups on the wines were breath-taking.

No atmosphere, waitress without personality and a sommelier that thinks he is the best in NYC.
We had an awful time an PLEASE change the the carpet to eood or something more contemporary

I inadvertently made a reservation for the wrong date, but they were able to sort it out and accommodate us for lunch, which was lovely. Really great kitchen here.
My only complaint is that the waiter did not offer the price point on the specials - I don't think the patron should have to ask. I should have asked. The Dover Sole was outstanding, but I wouldn't have paid $70 for it had I known (about double any other entree).
Nonetheless, I'll be back. This place is terrific.

The staff was warm and friendly to a fault. Food was fresh, well-presented and interesting. The decor is highlighted by numerous artworks that collectively create a lively and sophisticated atmosphere. In back, there is a "garden room" that would be excellent for business-casual to semi-formal events of medium size.

The very dated interior made me nervous upon entry, but we were given a great table in the front window. The service was very good, but the food was the star. The menu was varied; everything we ordered was extremely fresh, not over buttered or sauced, and elegantly prepared. Don’t judge a book by the cover, as the meal delivers.

The truffle pizza is the best pizza I have ever had - and that is saying something. The crust is perfection, as are the toppings. I shared the pizza with a friend and we each had a salad as well (Nicoise and Cobb) and we had a delicious lunch. Excellent service as well!

Unfortunately the signature California Omelet was bland and uneven, and the potatoes served with it were cold. Some of the staff (the hostess, for example) seemed a little rude. If it were priced more reasonably I'd be able to ignore these shortcomings, but having paid $50 per person for a weekday breakfast, makes these mistakes hard to overlook.
