Excellent food, wonderful atmosphere, impeccable service. They just do everything right at this legendary restaurant. We've been there many times over the years and have never been disappointed in any way. From the fresh flowers and candlelit tables to the live piano music and fireplaces, you just simply cannot find a more romantic restaurant in NYC. An outstanding experience every single time.

We ordered the 7 course tasting menu. Food was great and we loved their beef Wellington. It did help that we were able to get a table by the window. Overall it’s a good dining experience.

My beef wellington was terrific but it came with 5 stringbeans. My wife and daughter each ordered the ribeye and that was a total disappointment. The steak was grizzly and under-seasoned. My wife explained that to the waiter who gave us a wellington to go. the desserts were amazing.
the restaurant was extremely dark making reading the menu very difficult.
We always loved going there but at $109 a person, they need to step up their game.

I took a friend for his birthday and it was simply EXQUISITE! We enjoyed a drink at the bar and then took our table for a fabulous meal. I had a delicious halibut steamed in coconut milk, and my friend had the individual Beef Wellington. Definitely a place for a special occasion or date. This was not our first time; a couple of years ago we went at Christmas and it was beautifully decorated for the holiday. Will go back for sure!

Overall a very nice experience. In the future I would stick with going there for dessert versus proper dinner/dining. Our entrees were on the bland side (French food?) but the desserts were outstanding. Service and ambiance were good.

We ordered appetizers and the server went to the kitchen and brought the dishes right away. Do they had them ready already? Or you guys microwave it? No way you can make a hot elaborated dish in less than 3 min (grilled octopus and duck papardelle)

The mains were ok but the same system. Server brought the dishes 4 min after they took our appetizer plates out of the table.

Servers were very attentive but for the price we paid the quality of the food was poor.

Very nice environment.

Very enjoyable. This restaurant is located in an old carriage house with lots of history, including a connection to Aaron Burr.
The prix fixed menu has many choices in both the appetizer and main course sections. My guests & I ordered different dishes for each course and shared them.
Foie gras appetizer was expertly cooked: moist and delicious. The octopus app. was also very tasty and grilled
Correctly. Not chewy at all . For a main, I had the beef Wellington, which was served medium rare as ordered. Tender, juicy beef was excellent. I just wish that either a bearnaise or Demi glacé sauce was included. The branzino and gnocchi were also outstanding. For dessert we sampled the chocolate souffle, the pastachio dessert and
The creme brûlée, all delicious. The service was spot on. They also have a very impressive wine list with a large selection toon of wines by the glass. I’ll be back the next time I’m in nyc.

I really liked this restaurant. I came there for my birthday celebration.When I arrived I could tell it was romantic. There was piano music playing the whole time.

I was placed next to a couple of other people. When I sat down, I immediately got asked what type of water I wanted and got served my choice. I had to wait a while before the waiter came back to serve us, because there was one waiter for five tables. When the food did arrive, it was really good. The food was in small portions, but eating the appetizer, entree and desert was filling.

I also had a glass of Chardonnay which was really good. They ended up giving me an extra desert with Happy Birthday written in chocolate which I thought was really nice. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant.
