The pre fix lunch is overpriced and the food was mediocre at best. Would not go back.

Good food but very expensive. I don't mind the price fixed menu and they do vary it a bit, but $75/pop is steep.

The restaurant had a very comfortable atmosphere. Our waiter was careful with food needs and spotted an error in the food that was prepared for me. A major improvement since our last visit when the restaurant was on the West Side is that now it is wheel chair accessible.

Best kosher food I’ve had in NYC, though I have not been kosher for 20 years. High quality food, well-prepared, reasonable kosher wine list, nice ambiance. VERY expensive, so if you don’t have to eat kosher, cannot really recommend.

Excellent quality, but the fixed price lunch is expensive. The best time for doing so is a business lunch when you are not paying out of your own pocket.

We had a family celebration with a party of 6.
Table was beautifully located,so we were comfortable and able to have a conversation around the table.Service was outstanding,
Food was very good,but somewhat lacking a flavor.Steak was cooked to perfection,but plain tasting.Latkes and Foie grass were delicious and we ordered extra.
Everyone was happy with their choices.
Some people were gluten-free and it was very limited dessert menu for someone with a special needs.
Overall,a very good experience and we will definitely consider coming back.

Great meal, great service, great experience. Best meal in town and as Mike makes the rounds, grab him for some good conversation... Nice to talk to a chef/proprietor who's so passionate about his food and every detail associated with it's sourcing, preparation and presentation.

The best meat kosher restaurant we've been to. The waiter was awesome and besides the prices being a tad high (but this is the norm...) , we were totally satisfied.

The food was very basic, without artistic merit. I would not recommend it at all. For such a price, much better fare is available elsewhere. The "dessert" fruit cup could be had from a local fast food diner. The bland quail was of an underwhelming proportion which left me hungry. The soup, well, let's say it was also a very small proportion of a basic root vegetable. The salad (jicama/beet) was the only item on the fixed price lunch menu that deserves anything above a 1 star... perhaps grasping at 2 to3 stars. 'Amazing that this establishment can stay in business.

Drinks were great. Service was attentive to the point that it was almost annoying but the waiter backed off after a while. Food was good but the whole meal was mind numbingly expensive. The squab was good but not $75 good.

This is one of the best restaurants I have been to in NYC - I still can't believe that it's kosher. The prime rib for two is the hands down the top kosher steak.

Elegant restaurant with creative food and excellent service. Highly recommend the corn soup for an appetizer and the Rib for the main both were bursting with mouthwatering flavours. The only criticism was that the portions were small and menu over priced ( $18 for the soup which was no bigger than a cup o soup) but if you can get over that it's worth it.

Its good compared to most kosher restaurants. It's expensive. Eg a small corn chowder starter 18 bucks. We felt very rushed by our waiter. He wasnt friendly at all. Almost rude. Food is overall good.
