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.

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.

The menu seems to be smaller during this time for outdoor dining but glad it keeps the Beef Wellington. Outstanding taste! So is the scallops. Amazing too!

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.

We always dine here every year during our spring break trip. Orchid always takes outstanding care of us at the bar. We were sad to miss Maria but the hostess made sure to give us the table we have had for the last nine years. The food was amazing! My husband’s fish was cooked perfectly and my beef Wellington was out of this world! The wine was delicious and dessert was the perfect way to end the night. This is an amazing, special, romantic gem!!!

8 course tasting menu- 4 courses were great, 2 were very good and 2 were average (one being the main course). Service was pleasant. It just wasn't mind blowing and so its overall not a great value IMHO.

We have eaten here for years and always had a great meal. Tonight, the bar was clearly overwhelmed - we waited nearly 10 minutes to order our drinks and then waited at least 10 minutes to pay as we had a dinner reservation. Our server was sweet and all of the food runners were polite and kind. We ordered the 8 course tasting menu and wine pairings. We had to remind our server after waiting for our halibut (or Branzino not sure which - server said halibut and food runner said branzino) for 15 min that it was never served. It was clear when served that this dish sat under a heat lamp for an extended period. All of the dishes served were delicious except for this one. Overall for a $600+ dinner there are plenty of other restaurants in the city to enjoy. My husband and I will Not come back.

Took my parents out for a belated Christmas gift! I know...it’s late February, but not enough good can be said about the place. The 2 girls up front let us in before they opened so we were not in the cold. We enjoyed the fire place and drinks from the bar. $18 per drink, but again...so nice. The pianist came in and started playing. More ambiance. We took our time. They allowed me to take photos all over the restaurant, and also discussed with me some online marketing.

The server was awesome. Super attendant. They gave us courtyard view seating. We were the only ones there for about 5 minutes. The portions for the 3 course price fix range in variety. I had the scallops. Great, but only 2. Bacon was great over it. The Beef Wellington was out of this world. It’s a must! Simply perfect in every way, and not small. My father has the carrot cake and loved it, and my mom
And I the Chocolate soufflé...perfect. They gave me a comp dessert plate to celebrate my special night with them, and please be sure to ask for Maria. She’s been there for over 30 years, and does it right. Greets the ppl, kind, not snotty...loved her. Her, in relation to the history of the place, creates for a very special night. You KNOW your in a very select place....total pros! It was $109 per person.

It was the Valentine’s Day dinner for me and my boyfriend. It was an amazing ambiance, the place looks amazing and perfect for a diner night but the service and food weren’t as good as I expected. The hostess was chewing gum while greeting us (great start), the server over poured the bottle of sparkling water (we didn’t even get the appetizer at that point), the glass of wine I ordered was poured without giving me a taste first, she just poured the glass of wine and in the restaurant industry we just don’t do things like that. So after all this I would only recommend the place for the way it looks, for the ambiance, but definitely not for the food or service. Food was not impressive in any way and ridiculously overpriced, I mean I expected that for the Valentine’s Day but this was a bit too much!

Can’t be more romantic, can’t feel more special, owner/manager is charming and all staff are super attentive. I’ve had better food but not in a very long time. Way better than some of the newcomers. I’ll be back. Also lols like a great place for a drink and snack at the bar.
