                                          Have not been in many years but just as good as I remember it. It was the perfect place to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday.

                                          This is a truly unique place - incredible atmosphere, incredible service, incredible food. We have lived in NY for decades and continue to feel this is, by far, one of the best restaurants in the city.

                                          I booked this table for my bestie’s birthday a week ago and I expected a wonder dinner and birthday celebration. However, this restaurant has really let us down and we were so disappointed. At first, we came at 6pm which was early and they assigned us at a random table which is shaky. We requested a table change but the new table is just under the ac and it was so cold. After we ordered 2 tasting menu, with me allergic to mushroom, they didn’t offer me any substitute. Instead of it, they just removed the pastry of beef Wellington which just made it a common beef. The most annoying thing is that even if we mentioned that it’s my friend’s birthday, nobody cares or prepare anything. But surprisingly, we saw other table given birthday surprise cake or candle. Overall Nothing is satisfying and nothing is worth 240 dollar pp. Avoid this restaurant!!!!

                                          I made a note we were celebrating mothers day but there was nothing special for my mom in the meal. No chocolate writing no card the server didn't even mention it during dinner. Besides that the food was good! Beef wellington needed some salt which we ended up getting for the table. They mixed up my salad order I got the baby beet and they gave me the garden green. So I had to flag someone down to correct that. Over all good meal just the service wasn't as attentive as I would have liked.

                                          Romantic, exquisite and perfect in every way. The ambience, the food, the perfectly paired wines, and the service were impeccable. We enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu over approximately 2 1/2 hours. From the roaring fireplace in the lounge area, to the wonderful pianist, to the last bite of the the chocolate soufflé, the evening was simply elegant, sophisticated and charming. We will remember this for years to come.

                                          We did the tasting menu and were very disappointed in the food. The hamachi was clumsily cut and had membranes in it. The beef wellington my husband got had raw pastry dough. The replacement was over cooked. We also both ordered a bourbon that we are very familiar with. We ordered it neat, but mine came in an ice cold glass, which was very strange, and it tasted as if it had been cut with water. Perhaps they added a rock and then pulled it out when they realized it’s was supposed to be neat? All in all, we didn’t enjoy our meal and will likely not be back.

                                          Wonderful service and dinner but very, very expensive. It was a unique and lovely experience but dinner for two for $500 (included one reasonably priced bottle of wine) was a serious investment

                                          Life changing. I kept saying that over and over. The seven course tasting menu was some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. This hidden gem with all its history and beauty was 100% worth it.

                                          What can I say? What an extraordinary experience! The wife and I came here to celebrate our anniversary, and it was the perfect place to do that. The service was impeccable and the food was next level. The lobster, Beef Wellington and foie gras were outstanding as were the desserts. I highly recommended this gem in the West Village.

                                          The food was wonderful. The foie gras, beef wellington and sashimi especially. Not a huge fan of the pasta or black sea bass and wish they had substituted one of those for a vegetable option in the 7 course menu (like that delicious mushroom soup!). Shoutout to the bartender, I didn't catch her name but she was great.

                                          Outstanding! The restaurant has maintained its romantic atmosphere. The dishes served are of the highest quality, nicely presented and delicious. The staff is attentive, but not overbearing. Even though the restaurant is quite far from our apartment, it has been -- and will continue to be -- our venue of choice for celebrations of birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.

                                          For a romantic evening out, I haven't found anywhere better. The atmosphere and the quality of the food, just make for the prefect evening.

                                          The location is stunning, absolutely beautiful venue. We found having no a la carte option quite limiting as we didn’t not like the starter options. The food was under seasoned and some courses quite bland. I have had cheaper food which has been better. I feel that you are paying for the location more than the food. I ordered a cocktail which was so sour and heavy on alcohol - the server kindly changed this for me and the service was fantastic.

                                          Really subpar. Octopus was hard and rubbery. Service was cold and uninviting. Expected so much more. Supposed to be one of the most romantic restaurants and it was really underwhelming

                                          I asked (and called in) way in advance to get better seating by a window to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday. We arrived when the restaurant was empty and they sat us at a very bad spot. When I asked if we could get a better spot, they said that they were all booked for the night.

                                          We absolutely love the restaurant! Although it was not an auspicious beginning. The hostess was not too friendly. We arrived approximately 15-20 minutes early for our 6:45 reservation. She told us to have a drink at the bar for our time. I noticed that the restaurant as fairly empty. We sat at the bar. We noticed that people kept arriving after us and being seated right away. At about 7:25 I asked the hostess about our table. It appears that she had forgotten about us and actually looked annoyed. So she told us to pay our tab so that she could seat us. Not an apology. After that everything was fantastic! The food, drinks and, especially, the service. We loved our server Thai (not sure of the spelling). She is the best! Everything she recommended was right on point! She was friendly, courteous and very sweet. Whenever we go back we will be asking to be served by her! She really was the best!

                                          Carefully prepared and artfully presented food, romantic setting, and responsive service. If not for the boisterous table of seven (they had obviously enjoyed many drinks) next to us with one woman whose voice could etch glass, this would have been a lovely birthday dinner for my wife. Next time we'll ask for a more isolated table.
