The food was excellent, as usual, and the service was impeccable. The only thing missing was the piano player, but that was understandable.

The food is to die for. It's amazing. The service was so so. They were out 3 wines and beers I chose to order off their list which was disappointing, but very understandable with Covid. I will definitely dine here again.

This restaurant is simply hype and feels like a tourist trap. It is a very cool historic building and definitely a beautiful ambiance. The food is sub par ESPECIALLY for the price tag. We did the chef’s tasting w/ wine pairing and for $300 per person including tip and a drink before dinner, this needed to be one of the best meals in all of NYC. It just wasn’t and honestly didn’t even come close. The halibut and beef Wellington were both very good but everything else was sub standard. They offer 3 ports during dinner which is typically unheard of and just didn’t work with everything else. I would expect a lot more from a restaurant boasting these kind of prices. I have no problem paying for an experience and great food, but this place misses the mark completely.

My boyfriend and I were celebrating an anniversary and could not have had a better evening! We chose the chefs selection with wine pairing, which was exquisite! The food is amazing only to be matched by the incredible service! We travel a lot internationally and this experience was a top-five for us, we will absolutely be back!!

I’ve heard so many good things about this place. Yes it is romantic and very unique. Place is beautiful.
But the food wasn’t worth it for me. Maybe it’s due to Covid, because a lot of places I’ve noticed gotten a bit worse with food. It was my first time visiting so I can’t compare.

Overall if you’re looking for a super romantic date and you’re both madly in love, it’s worth coming here.

I got the tasting menu and wine pairing. Overall, the food was bland, but the timing of courses and wine pairings were good. I don’t think I would return. Additionally, I had very poor service upon arrival (requested outdoor seating). There were only 3 other tables in the entire establishment, and I was blantantly ignored by servers until I went inside and requested an indoor table.

Food, ambiance, service - were all top notch. Only thing that bothered us was that we are brown people and were first to be seated in the upper level - even though there were plenty of available spaces in the main level. And as the night progressed, four other groups were seated in the upper level - all non-white. And since we had a view of the main level, we noticed that there were no non-white party seated in the main level. We sincerely hope that this was just a coincidence and not the norm.

The food was great, service was very attentive, and the atmosphere was incredible. COVID makes fine dining tough, and they could have done a better job setting the expectation early.

What a beautiful restaurant; lovely ambiance. First time here and would definitely recommend to others. They have lots of space inside for distancing. You do, at the moment, have to do a prix fixe which I did not realize. But the food and drinks were great, the service was great.

Still one of the best rooms to dine at anywhere in the world. Hasn’t lost its charm. Not as fancy as it used to be which is both good (more approachable) and bad (doesn’t quite feel as special), but still great nonetheless. Glad they are making a go of it through this ridiculousness going on in the world and hope people support it. Not sure how many more iconic locations we can afford to lose in NYC. Will be back soon.

Great restaurant. We used to frequent years back, then fell off our radar. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely return. The beef Wellington was off the charts. We were seated outside- due to Covid, it was beautiful. The only thing they should fix is stop the homeless from wheeling through-- I understand its a sidewalk but really not a great addition to the overall ambiance. We will be back!

After years of hearing and reading about this place, I was disappointed with my experience. This might be due to Covid, and maybe they don’t have their regular staff. However, I found the menu uninspired, and execution was average, despite relatively high prices.

Made the reservation on OpenTable. Took an UBER all the way from Brooklyn only to show up to a closed restaurant. As someone who has been in the business, it is absolutely inexcusable.

Pretty mediocre experience and definitely not the same restaurant as it used to be pre covid. They are only serving their takeout menu, which is made up of burgers, wraps and a beef Wellington. Service was excellent but the food and the overall experience was very disappointing.

Completely dissatisfied with the bland food and service. I’ve been here a few times and unless it’s a holiday other then normal dining this place has gone downhill. Valentine’s Day dinner was great and decided to go for my birthday. Was not worth it and in this competitive world of dining many many other options.
